Five-Star Pleasure - - PUBLISHER’S NOTE -

Quiet com­fort and cul­tur­ally

rich of­fer­ings.

De­vel­oped by COMO Ho­tels and Re­sorts, Uma (“liv­ing house”) prop­er­ties are lo­cated in un­spoilt, in­land lo­ca­tions. They are also eco­log­i­cally aware. Ev­ery as­pect of an Uma re­sort is in­fused with indige­nous at­tributes, from de­sign to cui­sine to lo­cal staff knowl­edge. The in­ten­tion is to im­merse guests in the tex­tu­ral rich­ness of the re­sort’s care­fully cho­sen re­gion; from cul­ture to re­li­gion to land­scape, of­fer­ing the dual ex­pe­ri­ence of es­cape and ad­ven­ture.

AC­COM­MO­DA­TION: Uma Ubud has 29 Dou­ble Rooms and Suites, in­clud­ing 14 Ter­race and 10 Gar­den rooms, three Uma Pool Suites, one Uma Suite and one COMO Suite. The 14 Ter­race Rooms, lo­cated through­out the re­sort, are each 45 square me­tres with gar­den ter­races. There are 10 Gar­den Rooms po­si­tioned along the north­ern perime­ter, all 53 square me­tres with a pri­vate court­yard. The three Uma Pool Suites are 94 square me­tres and have in­fin­ity-edge pools and un­in­ter­rupted views across the val­ley down to the snaking river. The Uma Suite is sim­i­lar, but with­out a pool while the COMO Suite, lo­cated on the south­ern edge of the re­sort, has pos­si­bly the best pool at the re­sort as well as a pri­vate spa treat­ment area.

DIN­ING: At Uma Ubud cui­sine is con­sid­ered a cru­cial el­e­ment of the guest ex­pe­ri­ence. The name of the re­sort’s restau­rant, Kemiri, means “can­dlenut” and was de­signed to in­clude an open-air space that can seat up to 70, both cov­ered and un­cov­ered, in ad­di­tion to an in­ti­mate pri­vate din­ing bale (gazebo) for 12. Menus dis­play a rig­or­ous re­liance on sea­sonal in­gre­di­ents from lo­cal sup­pli­ers and show­case Bali’s rich gourmet her­itage along­side other Asian cuisines. The re­sults are health-giv­ing and orig­i­nal.

LEISURE: In recog­ni­tion of Bali’s pow­er­ful spir­i­tu­al­ity, Uma Ubud has de­vel­oped the im­pres­sive COMO Shamb­hala Re­treat, de­signed for guests seek­ing greater health through yoga and re­lated treat­ments. The open-air pavil­ion for group and pri­vate yoga prac­tice has the best views in all the re­sort and there is also a med­i­ta­tion bale, re­flex­ol­ogy area, steam, sauna, gym, four treat­ment rooms and a 25-me­tre jade-green pool. And keep­ing with the Uma phi­los­o­phy of im­mers­ing guests in the lo­cal cul­ture and land­scape, Uma Ubud pro­vides in­tel­li­gent ac­cess to the dif­fer­ent lay­ers that make up is­land life, from tem­ple, gallery and mu­seum vis­its to more phys­i­cal ex­cur­sions in­clud­ing walk­ing, trekking, white-wa­ter raft­ing and moun­tain bik­ing in the Ba­li­nese coun­try­side.
