You are greeted by a round, four-seater dining table where you can enjoy breakfast, when not dining in the estate’s restaurant. Watch movies on the flat-screen television while the kids play on the pool deck outside, splashing around in the private pool, where the sun beds offer scenic jungle views. Villa Seraya A offers a king-sized master bedroom and a guest bedroom with twin beds.

The Pala offers a range of accommodation options including one-bedroom Villa Catur, two-bedroom Villa Batur, four-bedroom Villa Seraya which can be rented as two separate two-bedroom units, and the flagship five-bedroom Villa Agung. Rented together, The Pala is a great venue for events, wellness retreats, corporate get-togethers, weddings and family reunions with a total of 12 rooms accommodating 24 guests.

Rates and availability
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
