With 35 deluxe rooms, 65 Alaya rooms and 5 Alaya suites, guests are spoiled for choice when it comes to accommodation here.

What better way to relax after a day of sightseeing than in the Deluxe Room which provides a restful environment to unwind. It is a cozy base featuring clean-line furnishings, a smart en-suite bathroom and a decorative wall that showcases Bali’s creative legacy. A private terrace or balcony blends seamlessly into the outdoors providing extra space to relax.

Indulge in an artsy room—in comfort. The Alaya Room is the resort’s signature accommodation category. Featuring smart décor with an original work of local art extending along one entire wall, the room also features a terrace and a luxurious bathroom with a customised stone bathtub which promises spa-styled bathing indulgence.

The Alaya Suite redefines the notion of island-inspired luxury. This category lends itself to relaxation with well-designed areas to sleep, unwind and bathe in style. A soothing décor with bespoke furnishings and personal touches give this suite an air of sophistication.

The resort also offers the DaLa Spa. There are six customised treatment rooms in a serene garden against a flowing river backdrop. This exclusive facility has been designed to take the experience of true Balinese relaxation to the next level. It honours the traditions of local healing and beauty practices inspired by the island’s indigenous ingredients.

For something to eat, look no further than Petani Restaurant, a casual dining venue. The 120-seat restaurant celebrates the diversity of Asian cuisine with a menu driven by farm-fresh ingredients and in-season delicacies. Every dish is layered with exotic flavours that guests are sure to remember long after the meal.

And that’s not all. Housed within a traditional Javanese joglo, Manisan is an elegant Indonesian restaurant styled to combine age-old splendour with refined design elements. Experience the culturally-inspired food traditions of Indonesia’s vast archipelago here.

For those looking for the perfect place to celebrate their marriage, a culturally-related wedding pavilion in the form of a small joglo is accessed via a long walkway suspended over a productive rice field. This 350-year old solid teak structure originally comes from the Pati Regency in Central Java and has been restored to its former glory in Ubud.

Stay at Alaya Resort Ubud is experiencing the true living in the neighborhood.

The main swimming pool at Alaya Resort Ubud has been designed exclusively by Grounds Kent Architects as a statement piece dedicated to local craftsmanship. It is elongated with shapely curves mirroring the sloping contours of the surrounding landscape. A bamboo bridge crosses the centre of the pool and the whole outer area is covered in natural stone. The second pool is equally impressive and is a refreshing body of crystal clear water facing the rice field. There is ample space to leisurely laze the day away with a collection of reclining chairs and shady sunbrellas.

For business meetings, consider the Board Room, a contemporary space to conduct business and meet in style. It has been thoughtfully designed and comes equipped with the latest technology to anticipate the needs of up to 10 meeting participants.

Stay fit at the well-equipped gym which features a combination of cardio workout equipment and free weights.

Strategically located near some of Ubud’s great artistic and nature areas, the Alaya Resort Ubud is the perfect place to spend your next holiday.
