Bali Spirit Hotel and Spa :: Ubud, Bali

I could not help myself but to mention another place I have stayed in Bali...

I just love places surrounded by rainforest and located near water. One such place is the Bali Spirit Hotel and Spa nestle on a hillside above a gorge just outside Ubud. I love the combination of its natural location and hand crafted Balinese architecture.
However it's not a place if you do not like walking up and down steps! But if you like to swim in an outdoor pool surrounded by rainforest; or read a book to the sound of a river flowing below; or take a dip in the nearby traditional Balinese bathing pools; or just relax with a traditional Balinese massage in a garden pavilion to sounds of frogs and the flowing water... then this is your place.

the main building

As you can see from the photos, the main building has been lovingly restored and retains a traditional Balinese character and feel. Windows and doorways are made from carefully carved timber along with the old four poster beds and foyer furniture. The hand woven fabrics and textiles are also sourced from local craftsmen and designers.

If you are interested in staying one day, then this is one of those mid range hotels that makes you feel like you are stay at the luxury end without the associated charges.

Have a great weekend.
