Uma by COMO Ubud lies at the heart of the Balinese island.
The hotel, occupying a three-hectare site, is hidden on the fringe of Ubud, overlooking the Tjampuhan Valley. The town, where there are numerous shops, galleries and local restaurants, is a five-minute drive, or 20-minute walk.
The property is designed to feel like a rural home in the hills. In each villa, the bathrooms and principal living space is separated by an outdoor area. Carved panels open up rooms to incorporate views and the scent of forest, while the simplicity of pared-down walls keeps light flowing through interiors, from the bedroom through to garden terraces, private courtyards and infinity-edge plunge pools.
Cuisine is considered a crucial element of the guest experience. At Uma by COMO Ubud, the restaurant is called Kemiri and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Menus display a rigorous reliance on well-sourced, seasonal ingredients from local suppliers with dishes showcasing Bali's rich gourmet heritage as well as other Asian cuisines. These include modern interpretations of Southeast Asian cuisine. The spices of India and Indonesia also feature, combined with refined western techniques. The results are healthful and original.
In addition, guests can benefit from COMO Shambhala cuisine, designed to maximise energy and wellbeing with the use of raw, organic foods rich in living enzymes, vitamins and sea minerals. Blended nut milks replace cow's milk and genetically-tampered soy alternatives. Honey replaces processed sugars.
In recognition of Bali's powerful spirituality, Uma by COMO Ubud has developed a substantial COMO Shambhala Retreat, designed for guests seeking greater health through yoga and related treatments. The Asian-based therapies range from specific body treatments to facials, to sophisticated massages, including the COMO Shambhala signature massage, delivered by experienced practitioners who customise treatments according to individual needs.
