With work­ing rice fields as its nat­u­ral cen­tre­piece, ev­ery as­pect of Wapa di Ume oozes class and so­phis­ti­ca­tion. Flanked by rice fields, there are just 33 dis­tinc­tive dwellings scat­tered on the re­sort’s gen­tle slopes.

The ac­com­mo­da­tion has been cre­ated to com­bine tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese aes­thet­ics with modern style and com­fort; a feat achieved by us­ing lo­cal stone, folk- wo­ven fab­rics, bam­boo and nat­u­rally weath­ered woods. Choose from the Lanai Rooms,

"A mag­nif­i­cent trop­i­cal refuge away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of Bali."

the Di Ume Suites or the stun­ning pri­vate pool vil­las. The de­sign theme ex­tends through­out the prop­erty, in­clud­ing the tiered swim­ming pools, restau­rants, spa and the tra­di­tional am­phithe­atre where guests can be en­thralled by dance per­for­mances by lo­cal chil­dren.

In the rooms, the canopied beds al­low the cool breezes to gen­tly cir­cu­late, while the bath­rooms, with their sunken bath, of­fer views into pri­vate court­yard gar­dens. In line with the de­sign con­cept, there is no tele­vi­sion or ra­dio on the re­sort. For those who must con­nect to the out­side world, there is Wi- Fi.

Wapa’s Restau­rant serves a com­bi­na­tion of Asian and West­ern clas­sics, while Mr. Wayan, Ba­li­nese Cui­sine is the re­sort’s flag­ship eatery, of­fer­ing a truly au­then­tic Ba­li­nese din­ing ex­pe­ri­ence.

The three- storey Ume Spa of­fers tra­di­tional treat­ments con­ducted by pro­fes­sion­ally trained ther­a­pists. The spa has a whirlpool, a beauty cen­tre and two pri­vate mas­sage rooms and only uses nat­u­ral oils, indige­nous herbs and spices and an ex­otic blend of per­fumes.
