Alam Indah

Set among lush gardens, Alam Indah is surrounded by idyllic views looking out to the sacred land of the Monkey Forest temple. The secluded setting of Alam Indah feels like a retreat, but the center of Ubud is just a 10 minute stroll through the Monkey Forest. If you don’t feel like walking, a complimentary shuttle car to and from the center of Ubud is also available on request.

Alum Indah offers an in-house menu for lunch and dinner prepared at the Alam Indah kitchen or the extended menu selection from Cafe Wayan or Lake Leke may be ordered in advance.  Over the years, many repeat guests have returned to stay here feeling Alam Indah to be their special home base while in Bali.


Alam Indah has 10 guest rooms-each individually appointed in their own style combining traditional Balinese art and architecture with modern amenities. 

The resort offers 3 deluxe valley view rooms with wonderful views, ceiling fans and air-conditioning. There are also 2 deluxe garden view rooms secluded in gardens halfway down to the pool. The 2 standard garden view rooms feel like you are sleeping in the trees. Located on a hill just above the pool, are the suites with upstairs bedroom and bathroom with splendid valley views and air-conditioning. Downstairs has a lounge space with a sofa bed with ceiling fan and a separate full bathroom. There’s even a Pumpkin House to rent during certain times of the year. Each accommodation is uniquely suited to your travel needs and makes you feel like you are living in a Balinese villa.

Accommodations blend in open-air Bali living with modern amenities in traditional architecture. 

Ubud is the perfect home base to explore Bali. There are many options for activities within comfortable walking distance right in Nyuhkuning. You may join a cooking class or cultural workshop, witness exotic dance and music performances, endulge in spa treatments, ayurveda or yoga. You may walk or drive just off the main roads surrounding Ubud bringing you to villages where the heart of Balinese culture is still very much alive. The staff at Alam Indah is happy to arrange rice walks, bicycle trips and half and full day tours of Bali’s temples, art centers, volcanoes and more.

Suggestions for Exploring:
The countryside and backroads just north of Ubud brings you through beautiful rice fields and terraces of Sebatu. Visit the Holy Springs at Gunung Kawi Sebatu or Tampaksiring. Late afternoon coming through the village of Petulu, you can see hundreds of herons returning to nest. This pleasant half day could be combined with a visit to the wood-carving village of Mas.
For a FULL DAY, include the half day above with a visit to Mt.Batur and the volcanic lake at Kintamani.
Visit the weaving village and beautiful valley of Sidemen and enroute, browse through the textiles at Klungkung market. You may also wish to include Besakih, the Mother Temple of Bali.  From Sidemen, upcountry roads can loop you down to the east coast.  There is a nice hidden white-sand beach at BugBug- beyond Candi Dasa. Look for the sign that says White Sand Virgin Beach- a bit of a rough road brings you to this beach where you can enjoy fresh seafood, lounge and swim.
A longer trip out East can take you to the Springs of Tirtagangga and beyond to Amed or Tulamben which is known for diving and snorkeling. Returning to Ubud passing Candi Dasa, is the Bali-Aga village of Tenganan. Here you can learn about traditional double-ikat weaving. Padang Bai Harbour is where the fast boats depart for the Gilis off Lombok. ( approx one hour drive from Ubud)


Drive up to Bedugul and Lake Bratan with Ulu-Danu Temple, passing the Candikuning market. The area around the village of Munduk is a beautiful area for walks and hikes to waterfalls and lakes.

RICE TERRACES of Jatiluwih:
Located further west in the highlands, a drive to these beautiful expanse of rice terraces makes a lovely day-trip. You may also wish to combine a visit to the peaceful Batukaru Temple.

More time for exploring beyond Ubud?

Northwest Bali and the area of Pemuteran offers the best scuba diving and snorkeling of Bali off Pulau Menjangan.

Ubud is in the middle of Bali, and international flights are in and out of the Denpasar Bali Airport, which is located on the southern tip of the island.  The drive time from Denpasar Airport to Ubud is around 90 minutes.
