The Cool Folk of Ubud
For a long time, the splashing fun of Bali was reserved to beachfront venues, but Folk Pool & Gardens is here to bring the cool pool scene to Ubud. Drawing inspiration from the eclectic people and vibrant lifestyle of Ubud, Folk provides an oasis of fun, equipped with a swimming pool amidst a lush garden setting. With a whimsical design that incorporates repurposed rustic tin roofs and traditional joglo roof and walls, the space is a unique destination that serves as a fresh breath for Ubud.
Even more importantly, Folk Pool & Gardens serves a great variety of all-day dining menus. Start off healthy with the smoothie bowl selection; choose from the dragon fruit and pineapple bowl, the avocado, kale and banana bowl or the strawberry yogurt. The salads offer many scrumptious options from pumpkin quinoa, Vietnamese chicken, to asparagus and feta salad and mahi mahi quinoa. Go hard with the pizza and sandwich selections, or go all the way with tuna teriyaki skewers or chicken yakitori from the grill section.
The desserts are also noteworthy, with blueberry frangipane tarts, strawberry tarts, churros and lapis cake on the menu. Remember, Folk is a perfect place to prove that sharing means caring, as it offers a long list of dishes to share including pork ribs, Balinese mezze platter and spinach lasagne.
Last but not least, Folk's drink menu is off the charts. From the virgin cocktails, to the wine and spirit lists – even arak-based cocktails are on offer. So this summer, Folk is the place to be to kick back and relax over a glass of tipple by the pool.
