Bambu Indah

Top choice resort in Ubud
Image by

A labour of love by expat entrepreneurs John and Cynthia Hardy, this eco-resort on a ridge near the Sungai Ayung (Ayung River) offers accommodation in 100-year-old Javanese wooden houses and new, quite extraordinary, structures made from natural materials. Some are simple, others luxurious; all are super stylish. Facilities include tiers of natural swimming pools, an organic restaurant and massage pods.

Guests are offered a free twice-daily shuttle service into central Ubud. The resort recycles and composts waste, filters water rather than using plastic bottles, and uses lava stones and a vegetation regeneration zone to naturally cleanse, filter and oxygenate the water in the hotel's swimming pools.
