As soon as you step onto the sacred earth of Ubud in Bali, you will undoubtedly feel a different vibration.

Ubud is known to many as the cultural and spiritual heart of Bali, and with reason. Surrounded by rice paddy fields, bursting with art and culture and beautiful raw and organic food options, Ubud flows at a gentle pace. While it boasts all the standard travel offerings like great food, spas, attractions and day tours, something unique to Ubud is a host of spiritual experiences. These are vast, varied and cater to everyone; from a curious first-time spiritual seeker to someone who really wants to open their heart and mind to a more mindful perspective. Ubud is the place to explore yourself… and beyond.
