Unbelievable tropical luxury retreat in Bali
Como resort is located in the center of Bali, Indonesia, aptly named Uma Ubud. This extraordinary Indonesian island is spliced by a volcanic mountain chain which divides the quiet north coast, where the foothills fall into the Bali Sea, from the busy south coast, where fertile rice paddies slope gently down towards the Indian Ocean. At its heart lies Ubud, a small but lively town regarded as the island’s cultural hub. The hotel, occupying a three-hectare site, is hidden on the fringe of Ubud, overlooking the Tjampuhan Valley amid paddy fields carved out of hillsides, backed by coconut palms and banyan trees. The river Oos runs below; to one side stands a mountain. There is no sound of traffic. The town, where there are numerous shops, galleries and local restaurants, is a five-minute drive or 20-minute walk.
