WE HAVE JUST BEEN TO: Bali, part 6, Kayumanis Ubud
AMID ARTISTS & JUNGLE - YOUR OWN VILLA
On the holy river Ayung, among jade green jungles and rice fields, Kayumanis Ubud at Sayan is a small collection of villas with one, two and three bedrooms. Within easy reach of the art and culture of Ubud.
As with most Balinese villa living, accommodation has two distinct areas – the bedroom (indoor), and open air bathroom/ living /dining area and plunge pool. Our villa was modern, yet rustic with an individual and informal feel.
Closer to the river, the restaurant and main pool have great views set against the backdrop of the jungle. There is a shuttle service to Ubud, where you eat, shop and experience the talents of the immensely gifted local artistic community.
Kayumanis also offers villas at Jimbaran or Nusa Dua. We highly recommend a combination to experience the rare charms of Ubud up in the hills, and the different beach settings, Nusa Dua with its long sandy beach, international hotels and exclusive shopping malls, or Jimbaran with its coconut grove, market, fishing village and seafood restaurants. At each Kayumanis resort guests have a restaurant and in-villa dining available on the property as well as a spa offering signature treatments. Each guest is assigned a butler.
Kaymanis villas offer a personal, more private concept, and are perhaps not for those who favour the buzz of large international hotels.
HOW TO GET TO KAYUMANIS
Kayumanis Ubud is 40 minutes by car from Bali International Airport, Kayumanis Jimbaran is 10 minutes, and Kayumanis Nusa Dua is 15 minutes from the airport.
