re­fresh­ing moun­tain air of Ubud. The wa­ter is cool dur­ing the day to pro­vide an in­vig­o­rat­ing oa­sis on warm af­ter­noons and is heated when the tem­per­a­ture drops. Kick off to some laps in the pool or just soak in the wa­ter while gaz­ing at the green pic­turesque view of the Bali jun­gle in front. This pool deck is a per­fect place to catch some rays in the com­fort­able sun loungers or just laze on an um­brel­lashaded re­cliner.
