Ubud is my go-to for a last minute holiday or reset. Its the perfect destination for anyone interested in a health orientated getaway. Every second store is filled with fantastic food, vegan sugar-free, raw you name it. The vegan ice cream in Ubud is some of the best I've ever had. The yoga barn and natural instinct healing also hold some great detox and or yoga retreats if you are interested in an all inclusive holiday.
There isn’t a need to hire a bike, if you situate yourself in the centre of Ubud you can walk to all the places mention in my travel guide (except the Bali swing or mount Batur hike)
Tirta Empul Temple, a Balinese Sacred Water Temple
The Yoga Barn has a vast array of daily yoga classes from beginners to advanced. They have many other regular classes like meditation, sound healing, ecstatic dance, women’s circles the list goes on.
Kush Aryvedic Spa is located inside the yoga barn. The face and body treatments are amazing, and you may want to try the Infrared saunas! 2 sauna sessions Is around $15 Australian.
Shopping! There are shops located on every street in Ubud. For the best bargains and shopping make sure to head to the ART Markets located at Jalan Raya Ubud main road, opposite the Puri Saren Ubud palace.
Campuhan Ridge Walk
Tjampuhan spa is one of my favourite spots. For around $13 you can have unlimited access to the Spa, Sauna, Steam rooms and Ice pool plunge. The first time I visited the spa, I was initially hesitant to attempt the sauna to ice pool plunge but its the most invigorating practice. You will feel incredible and beaming with vitality after doing the hot to cold plunging.
Paradiso. Located in down to earth cafe is cinema, Paradiso. The venue run's workshops, dance classes and features a cinema that screens films many nights of the week. The price you pay for your movie ticket can be used against dinner or snacks for the film, What a deal!! There is nothing like lounging back in the cinema with the delicious food from down to earth.
