Nestled away from the hustle and bustle of central Ubud is the tranquil and picturesque escape of Padma Resort Ubud. The lush green jungles and manicured gardens which surround the resort block out all hints of the outside world. Here you can rest and unwind amongst nature while never getting bored. Padma Resort Ubud offers daily activities, Ubud’s longest and might I add prettiest infinity pools along with gorgeously large rooms, a gym, day spa and so much more.
Activities at Padma Resort Ubud
It’ll be hard to pull yourself away from the stunning instagram worthy infinity pool, with its jungle views, swim up bar and ofcourse sun loungers. However for those who can only sun worship for so long you’ll be happy to discover there are plenty of activities and places to explore in and around the resort.
The 1.5km jogging track (you can walk it as well of course) will take you through a bamboo jungle, down to a shallow creek bed and across a wooden bridge. Leave the headphones off and enjoy the pleasant sounds of the native wildlife or stop along the way to take a seat in one of the bamboo huts, a perfect spot to clear your mind.
Padma Resort Ubud also offers a free daily activity schedule which includes yoga 3 times a day, bike rides to the rice fields as well as rotating activities such as village tours, balinese conversation, agroforestry and various kids activities such as scavenger hunts.
If for some crazy reason you miss the sound of traffic, there’s also a free shuttle to take you into central Ubud where you can spend the day at popular visitor sites like the Monkey forrest.
For a small extra cost you can also enjoy cooking and mixology classes, wine tasting and jungle trekking. There’s also a kids club and small pool area to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy a bit of me time.
There’s also a spa for pampering yourself and gym for those looking to work up a sweat while still taking in views of the beautiful surroundings.
When the sun goes down, cozy up next to the fire pit with roasted marshmallows and cups of hot chocolate or enjoy a cocktail or 2 in the lounge.
Rooms at Padma Resort Ubud
