My favorite hotels in Ubud, Bali
My four best hotels in Ubud, Bali
If you visit my website more often, you may by now know I spent quite a bit of time in various hotels in Ubud over the past years. In all honesty, Ubud is quite crowded and touristic, yet I enjoyed it a lot. You can take massages for just a couple of bucks, do the amazing Campuhan Ridge Walk, chill at the pool and enjoy the most amazing Balinese foods. Ubud also is the starting point for a quite a few nice adventures, such as going to The Bali Swing and climbing the Batur volcano. I spent a little more time in Ubud than most travellers and so I got to try four different hotels. All of them were very nice and definitely recommended. Here goes:
Hotel Pertiwi Bisma II – hotel with infinity pool in Ubud
For my first few nights I was looking for a hotel with infinity pool in Ubud and I found Hotel Pertiwi Bisma II. This hotel is located along Jl. Bisma, a long yet quiet street just outside of downtown Ubud. The hotel has two pools, one of them is an amazing infinity pool overlooking the jungle. I slept in one of their garden villas and really enjoyed the quiet and peaceful setting of this place. I paid € 37 per night for a single room. Hotel Pertiwis Bisma II is located in between the rice paddies and about a fifteen minute walk from the city centre. The famous Monkey Forest is just a five minute walk away. Unfortunately the weather was not really amazing when I was staying here, (lots of rain) as the photo shows but the views of the jungle were truly stunning. The food in their restaurant is amazing and just across the street you can easily grab a coffee at Kopi & Chat.

Ubud Terrace Hotel – centrally located hotel in Ubud
If you want to stay a little closer to the action, I can recommend Ubud Terrace Hotel. This one is located at the Monkey Forest Road in the busier part of Ubud. Luckily once you enter the property, you hardly notice the street noise anymore. The rooms are located around the swimming pool and have all amenities you may need. The swimming pool is awesome and they have the best massages in town just outside the hotel. Rooms can be booked from € 29 per night.

Anini Raka Hotel & Spa – quiet hotel in Ubud
My favorite quiet hotel in Ubud is Anini Raka Resort & Spa. This hotel is located about a thirty minute walk from downtown Ubud and its location is truly stunning: it’s right in between the ricefields. From here you can easily walk onto the Campuhan Ridge Walk, an amazing short hike above the famous Ubud rice fields. The massages at this hotel were of outstanding quality and it’s the perfect place for relaxing. There are two swimming pools but none of them were crowded, so it’s a great getaway from the busy town of Ubud. And … the coverphoto of this blog was taken right off my balcony so just see for yourself how amazing the views are!

Inata Bisma Hotel & Spa – a great four stay hotel on Bisma Street
I stayed in Inata Bisma Hotel & Spa during my most recent visit to Bali and truly enjoyed this quiet hotel on JL. Bisma. This is another Ubud hotel with infinity pool and is located just a five minute walk from Money Forest Road. This small hotel has two pools (of which one an infinity pool overlooking the rice fields), a spa and as well as a nice restaurant. Each building has 10 rooms, five on the first floor and five on the second floor. My room was overlooking the rice fields and a great spot for sunset in the evening, especially because of the giant windows. This was definitely my favorite hotel in Ubud so far!

Wow, these all look spectacular, the hotels in Bali are so beautiful and exotic. I want to jump in any of those pools now.
Go ahead and take the plunge 😉
Even though Ubud is touristy I would still love to spend a few days there. All of these hotels look great but I think I’d prefer the quiet Anini Raka spa by the ridge fields.
Yeah that was my #1 choice too, esp. because it’s a bit more away from everything …
Without a doubt, my choice would be Hotel Pertiwi Bisma II and that’s mainly because of the infinity pool! I always wanted to stay at Hanging Gardens of Ubud because of the same reason but that hotel is SO expensive! Thanks for these suggestions.
Yesss, infinity pools rock!
I’m with you that the Anini Raka Hotel & Spa looks perfect for me – but I do love quiet locations. It’s hard to judge the Hotel Pertiwi Bisma II because of the weather isn’t it
Yeah true … they are both really amazing!
The Hotel Pertiwi Bisma II is somewhere I would like to visit. My kids have been on me about visiting somewhere with an infinity pool for them to play in. I love that you look for places with great value for your money, we are the same way.
This would be a great choice, there were many kids in the hotel so I’m sure they’ll love it!
I literally can’t wait for my trip to Indonesia at the end of the year. These are some great options, although I think I’d have to go with the Ubud Terrace Hotel so I can try one of those amazing massages.
Yay, happy to hear you are going! You’ll love it for sure!
I’m planning on visiting Bali towards the end of the year and this is a very timely article. The pools look amazing and it is so luscious and green. Have not been to Indonesia yet, and I can’t wait! Thanks for the recommendations.
Have fun in Bali!
Each one of them look amazing. If I have to pick one it would be Hotel Pertiwi Bisma II. The amount if greenery surrounding it would be the one reason. 🙂
Yeah it’s amazing, the view on the jungle is priceless!
I heard of that Bali swing. Very very cool. I used to live by the notion that all I need is a bed and a room that locks I’ll be happy. But the more I read about all these amenities I realize I’m just fooling myself. The swimming pool at Ubud terrace looks like it’s in a jungle. So nice.
Yeah true, I noticed that too now that (how cheesy) I get older haha
All look awesome Anto! Definitely one of my fave places on earth, Ubud in Bali. We rent places in the rice fields to really soak up the scene. Thanks for sharing 🙂
Yeah so true, I really fell in love with the place 🙂
I stayed at the Pertiwi Bisma and it was fantastic! I loved Bali and can’t wait to go back!
Yay, same! Happy to hear you loved Bali, too!
