Kayumanis Ubud Private Villas and Spa is located in Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali. Strongly rooted in traditional Hindu customs, Ubud is a perfect venue to witness traditional Balinese ceremonies passed down countless generations.
Set among a profusion of flowers, trees and rice fields, Ubud has become the destination of choice for those seeking the perfect escape from the daily realities of concrete jungles. Ubud also serves as an excellent base from which to explore several unique points of interest including Puri Saren Agung, the palace of the last known “king” of Bali; the primate inhabitants of Monkey Forest; a plethora of dining options, art galleries, and of course some of the island’s best shopping.
Gently nestled on a serene parcel of land studded by aromatic cinnamon trees overlooking the lush jungle of the Ayung River Valley, Kayumanis Ubud offers the weary traveler total escape from the pressures of everyday life. A recent expansion saw Kayumanis Ubud double in size to better accommodate the needs of seasoned travelers seeking a leisure quality time – with an additional 13 Deluxe Pool Villas, a Honeymoon Suite, and a Spa.
The Deluxe Pool Villas are all about style and tropical sophistication. Set within its own garden compound, each tastefully appointed villa features separate living and sleeping quarters of personal space. A holistic array of amenities is available in each villa: a gourmet kitchen, two plasma TVs, and the latest in entertainment systems.
When not enjoying the beach fun and sun, indulge at the Kayumanis Spa. Perched above the sacred Ayung River, the Spa is a place that endorses wellness and living life to the fullest, with 5 open-air treatment pavilions positioned to capture the serene beauty of the natural surroundings. The spa also makes a conscious effort to return to the sustainable health and beauty rituals of a bygone era. For dining, the rustic on-site restaurant serves nutritionally balanced refreshments using locally grown organic ingredients. An infinity pool blends seamlessly into the landscape and is enveloped by shady cabañas – the perfect private sanctuary. The villa grounds are also ideal for meditation and yoga, private dining, and intimate weddings. Each occasion will be tailored to meet your very need with precision and care.
The long-awaited transformation of Kayumanis Ubud has elevated Kayu Manis to a new level of luxury where guests can truly escape and treasure the beauty of tranquility with superb services. Built holistically with the utmost respect for the environment and local village traditions, Kayumanis Ubud is a spiritually charged retreat where life is celebrated a day at a time.
