5. Chapung Sebali
The Chapung Sebali is one our favourite in this list! It’s located at around 7km North from Ubud centre so it’s not too far from the city but it’s still remote enough to feel relaxed.
This hotel doesn’t really offer rooms but suites or villas. So if you are traveling with your family or with a group of friends, this is the right option.
But what I like the most in this hotel is the bar area around the beautiful swimming pool (picture above). This bar is called the Jungle Fish and I spent so many afternoons here!
The atmosphere is so good here, they play deep house music all day and the food is delicious. May I suggest their tuna poke ball, a real delight!
