The Pala Ubud

The villa you chose is no longer available for rental from us but we have a portfolio of Elite Havens in various locations around South East Asia for you to choose from. Alternatively feel free to send us an enquiry and it'll be our pleasure to help you find the perfect villa for your next holiday.

Sleeps 24 Adults

A luxurious and secure enclave hidden in the jungles of Ubud along a hillside tumbling down towards a roaring river, The Pala is your quintessential jungle hideaway. Custom built for large gatherings, weddings, reunions and retreats, The Pala currently offers a total of 12 bedrooms in four villas, accommodating up to 24 guests. A fifth villa will be added to this collection in the coming months and will offer an additional five bedrooms accommodating an additional 10 guests.

Five-bedroom Villa Agung is the crown jewel of the estate. It sits on the top level, just beside the estate entry and restaurant. Enter via magnificent Indonesian golden and green gates to a sanctuary of comfort and togetherness. With five bedrooms accommodating ten guests, there’s plenty of room for everyone. You will love its rambling gardens, massive swimming pool with sculptures and outdoor shower.

The second-largest villa in the estate, Villa Seraya can be booked as a four-bedroom villa or rented as two separate two-bedroom villas - Villa Seraya A and Villa Seraya B. Enjoy access to not one but two private swimming pools when you book the villa as a unit, along with four bedrooms including two with king-sized beds and two with twin beds. If you're interested to book Villa Seraya A & B together, please ask assistance from our reservations team.

If you’re a small family with kids, you will love Villa Batur. With two bedrooms built along one level, it is a family-friendly home with a private pool and rooftop terrace. Breakfast is a delight at the dining table overlooking jungle views, while the outdoor shower is a hit with couples.

Speaking of which, Villa Catur will perfectly suit a couple looking for a peaceful retreat. The one-bedroom villa is self-sufficient and has enough space for you to feel like you’re at home.

Coming up - Villa Sanghyang will be the fifth villa in the Pala Ubud Estate. This modern tropical five-bedroom villa will soon be open for bookings by early 2024.

The estate offers the option of in-villa dining for breakfast but meals are best enjoyed in the restaurant, Hura, which gets its produce from the estate’s fruit and vegetable garden. A riverside lawn is perfect for yoga retreats or spa therapies and the estate has its own paddy fields if you wish to try your hand at rice farming.

All of Ubud’s charms are within easy reach, with the palace merely 6 km from the estate. The airport is 41 km away, and the journey takes up to 1.5 hours.

The Pala is built into half a hillside, going down to hug a rushing river meandering through the lush jungles. The estate’s intrigue is heightened by its hidden location, allowing you to be one with nature, while the charms of Ubud are mere minutes away.

The Pala is located 6km from the centre of Ubud where you will find the Ubud Palace, the venue for daily dance performances that you must not miss. The 15-minute journey into town gives you a short tour of Ubud’s lush hillsides, with many waterfalls, hiking trails and picturesque spots nearby.

Walking distance from The Pala, you will discover an ancient, 11th-century temple called Goa Garba, accessed via a steep flight of stairs, and a sacred water spring. A quiet spot, far from the tourist trail, you feel like you’re on the set of an Indiana Jones movie amidst these photogenic ruins.

More information for Things to do

The staff lives locally and offers a wealth of information on what to do in and around The Pala. Though Ubud beckons with all its charms, you will be hard pressed to leave the estate, given how many exciting activities are lined up for you at The Pala. Here’s a glimpse:

Activities at the estate

  • Get acquainted with nature and book a Rice Farming Experience. During harvest time, you can help harvest the crop or else plant rice crops under close supervision of the paddy in-charge.
  • River activities such as fishing, canoeing, tubing and more allow your family to have a whale of a time in the great outdoors.
  • Steps take you down to the riverside lawn, the perfect spot for picnics or bonfire evenings which can be set-up on request.
  • Take part in a Balinese Cooking Class wherein you can learn how to make some of your favourite local dishes.
  • Better still, book a Vegetable and Fruit Farm Tour within the estate. Pluck your own fruits and vegetables and then use these ingredients to cook up some amazing dishes.
  • Kids’ Activities such as feeding chickens, ducks and fish can be arranged. Children love to engage with farm animals and they will have a wonderful time interacting with the estate pets.
  • Book a Balinese Offering Making session and transform leaves, flowers and fruits from the garden into delightful offering baskets for the local temples.
  • Water Purification Ritual at the nearby Goa Garba Shrine can be a part of your wellness activities or simply one you partake in out of curiosity.

Outside the estate

  • Escape the afternoon heat and watch the antics of the long-tailed macaque monkeys at Ubud’s Sacred Monkey Forest. And mind your belongings, these monkeys are skilled pick-pockets!
  • No visit to Ubud is complete without seeing at least one traditional dance performance. This is a great opportunity to see classic Hindu legends being told through dancers in colourful, Balinese costumes.
  • The many spas and meditation centres of Ubud offer a wide range of eastern and western therapies from reiki to acupuncture, and yoga to herbal scrubs.
  • In March, Ubud hosts the Bali Spirit Festival of Yoga, Dance and World Music. Five days of yoga and music workshops, three nights of inspirational world music.
  • See some of Bali’s best scenery on a daytrip to volcanic Mount Batur. The largest crater lake in Bali fills part of Mount Batur’s caldera while small villages cling to the rim. The views from the nearby village of Penelokan are well worth making the trip.
  • Soar above the spectacular southern coastline of Bali on a paraglider. Paragliding courses, tandem and solo flights are available.
  • Tour the Karangasem Palace at Amlapura, visited for its unique combination of Balinese, Chinese and European architecture.
