ilab's City Tips

  • If you need a driver for a short trip or a whole day, then talk to people hanging around on the street who are looking for a job. Let them know your needs and negotiate a price. You're likely to make a new friend in the bargain!
  • Try to spend at least 3-4 days in Ubud; more if possible!
  • Ubud is at its best early in the morning or late in the afternoon, once the day trippers have left!
  • Campuhan Ridge Walk

    The Campuhan Ridge Walk is a wonderful way to get away from the crowds and spend some time just the two of you in nature. Set off early in the morning (before 8am if possible) and do this easy walk before the heat of the day — and don't forget to veer off the track occasionally to find a secluded spot for a bit of quiet meditation. (The Campuhuan Ridge is known to the locals as Lovers' Hill!)

    One of the most romantic locations for a spa in Ubud, Spa at Maya venue is located at the far end of the 10-hectare gardens that make up the wonderful Maya Hotel. The walk through the gardens alone — past the villas and down the steps to the beautiful river valley, with the sound of rushing water — is a wonderfully relaxing experience. And you haven't even begun the fabulous couple's massage yet!

    Just a few steps from the Maya Spa is the River Cafe, with its own beautiful infinity pool overlooking the river at the Maya Resort. This is a great place for a quiet lunch either before or after your spa treatment.

    La View Restaurant is the site of one of the most romantic dinners I have ever experienced! Dinner in the Birds Nest is just fabulous — with a simply spectacular view of the Ayung River Valley, you really do feel as though you are hanging in a nest, away from everyone and everything. The flower-strewn floor and view take your breath away! Oh, and did I mention that the 4-course dinner is great too?

    Why not do some yoga at Taksu, and perhaps even stay in one of the private villas, where the calming sound of rushing water will soothe you as you get in touch with your inner selves?! Taksu Yoga classes are unique in Ubud, due to their spectacular natural setting — you're guaranteed to be far, far away from the hordes of day-trippers.

    Mozaic is one of the very best fine dining restaurants in Bali, and a candlelight dinner in the garden here is a wonderfully romantic way to end a day in Ubud. There are a variety of tasting menus, though I must say that the Indonesian Culinary Discovery menu is particularly superb! Allow the experienced sommelier to advise you on the right wine to accompany your selection, or go for the wine parings and your romantic evening will be automatically set! (The service is also efficient yet discreet.)

    Between romantic spa treatments and wonderful candlelit dinners, why not take some time out to enjoy each other's company at the beautiful Elephant Safari Park? The Elephant Safari is a great way for two people to bond while enjoying an elephant ride through serene botanical gardens — and you'll even end your experience by joining the handler in washing the elephant.

    What better way to say 'I Love You' than by making your own unique jewelry pieces in a silversmith class at Chez Monique? Spend a few hours together creating something truly one-of-a-kind, with skilled silversmiths guiding you every step of the way. You can also add your own stones and extra silver to make that piece truly priceless!
