Uma Ubud, Ubud Indonesia

Hello oh lovely readers, I'm back!

I recently returned from my holiday to Singapore and Bali. In Singapore Mr Ladybird and I caught up with some family before heading to Bali for 5 days. It has been too long since my last blog post, so let me share some of my holiday with you.

Mr Ladybird and I have had a bit of a tiring year, and we were well overdue for a good break, and we also wanted to celebrate our second anniversary properly. So some serious rest and relaxation was on the cards for both of us. We stayed at a beautiful hotel called Uma Ubud, a true gem of a place hidden away in Ubud, around 40 minutes drive north-east of Bali airport. Well and truly away from the noise, heat and hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas of Bali.

It was an incredible 5 star experience - just what the doctor ordered. But sometimes it's best to say it with pictures (and fewer words)...

We stayed in the Garden Room which was more like a small private villa featuring a beautiful entrance with stepping stones across a pond with a small fountain and resident koi fish. It was minimlast and homely at the same time.. just perfect :)

And waiting for us on our porch, two refreshing fruit punches to welcome us...

... as well as the cake brought to us to commemorate our anniversary - so thoughtful, and such a sweet surprise from the staff at Uma Ubud.

 The beautiful bedroom...

The enormous bathroom complete with an enormous bathtub!

And our private porch and garden

And the hotel surroundings were equally beautiful. Uma Ubud's property is carved out of hillsides overlooking the Tjampuhan Valley on the fringes of Ubud. Green and lush with birds in the trees.

The hotel yoga pavillion where yoga classes were held for guests daily. The pavillion overlooks the valley and it was very relaxing hearing the water running in the valley below while practising.

The stunning hotel restaurant...

I can't wait to bring you more from our stay at Uma Ubud - next time I'll be focusing on the wonderful food we enjoyed there, so stayed tuned :)
