Body and Soul
Located just a 20-minute drive away from the town of Ubud amidst lush greenery, Samsara Ubud ( BanjarAyah,DesaKelusa,Payangan, Bali;+62811846769;samsaraubud.com) is a luxury villa resort created specifically to replenish your soul. The resort offers 17 villas—eight onebedroom villas, six one-bedroom deluxe villas, a pair of two-bedroom villas and one three-bedroom villa—decorated with teak furnishings and contemporary Balinese accents. Each villa comes with its own private pool overlooking the tropical jungle, where you can enjoy the sounds of a nearby waterfall. While there, you can also participate in unique activities like the Balinese water purification ritual at the Tirta Empul temple or the Mount Batur sunrise trek. If you prefer to stay at the hotel though, make sure to head over to the Chakra Spa, where you will be treated to the utmost in pampering.
