When you hear the term “exotic destination”, our minds usually go to strikingly unusual, unique and beautiful locations. That is only the start to describe one of the most stunning Five Star luxury resorts in with world, placed in the picturesque rainforest just outside of Ubud in Bali, The Capella Ubud.
World renowned architect Bill Bensley, took a new approach to resort accommodations by designing a Dutch-style “tented” camp with salt water pools amidst the lush greenery of Bali. However these tents are far from the original type of canvas and poles. With a concept of “minimal intervention” to the surrounding flora and fauna, these luxury residences are designed with the highest level of Balinese hand-made materials, furnishings and antiques. Capella Ubud, Bali offers twenty-two one-bedroom tents and one two-bedroom lodge, all featuring modern conveniences such as air conditioning and wifi.
Terrace Tents overlook the rice terraces and rainforest from large outdoor decks, with daybeds and poolside sun loungers around a private pool. Inside, timeless charm meets sumptuous modern comforts such as a hammered copper freestanding bath and art and antiques from the owner’s private collection. Rainforest Tents have serene views across the lush forest surroundings, which can be enjoyed from the outdoor salt water pool and large deck. Proximity to nature and the beauty of Bali is respected with subtle yet luxurious comforts within the tent.
Looking over the Wos river, River Tents are the place to be soothed to sleep by the closeness of nature and the water. Individually styled, each retreat is inspired by early exploration and enhanced by modern amenities and thoughtful touches including organic bathroom products and beautiful hammered copper baths. Keliki Valley Tents enjoy unobstructed views across the beautiful valley and rainforest from the large outdoor deck and dining area. Inside, explorer-inspired design and modern comforts are combined to create a private, luxurious sanctuary.
The Lodge boasts exotic, oriental designs that still blend into the terraced landscape. It offers impressive, lush green Keliki valley views, an open plan living room, a master bedroom with a king sized bed, two double beds, two bathrooms featuring a Japanese bath tub and a hand-hammered copper bath and a large wooden deck with two large daybeds. A private salt water pool further compliments this accommodation that is ideal for adventurous small families or discerning travelers seeking stylish and lavish accommodation.
