About Como Uma Ubud:
Its rooms are set on a hillside overlooking a deep gorge. Many of them open out to this valley vista and open-air showers remind you where you are. All you see and touch has a soothing effect, from creamy white bedrooms, bleached wood carvings and super soft bedding to the tranquil COMO Shambhala spa for yoga and Asian-inspired treatments. The cuisine is light and imaginative, and the low-slung bar area serving espresso Martinis lets you pleasantly drift into conversations with whomever you wish. This is pure understated quality as you would expect.

At the heart of the complex, you’re struck by the knockout swimming pool, surrounded by sun loungers and lush vegetation; at night it is lit by candles. The hotel has a simple, Balinese look with thatched balés, whitewashed rooms and minimal decoration, and yet it has a quietly luxurious feel. There is a deep calm to the resort, broken only by the sounds of frogs, crickets or birds from the jungle surrounding it.

There are free morning walks to the local rice paddies; free evening yoga sessions at the pavilion; a canopy that overlooks the jungle in the Tjampuhan Valley; plus a small gym. The spa, known as COMO Shambhala Retreat, has four treatment rooms and felt like a treat and it was excellent value. The staff are kind and attentive without being in the way; for example, they continuously top up the free iced water at the poolside and at breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble – including a delicious bowl of chicken noodle soup for hungry travellers at 2am.

Japanese architect Kochiro Ikebuchi has made the hotel and its steep hillside work well together thanks to his use of local wood and alang alang thatched roofs. Inside, the rooms blend Zen simplicity with traditional Balinese elements, making them light, airy and calming. Fine white mosquito nets, silky smooth linen, pale stone flooring and lime washed wood carvings make a refreshing change from the usual dark wood furnishings found in Balinese hotels.

Breakfast is served next to a lily pond filled with koi carp. Options included western-style poached eggs on muffins or Balinese banana pancakes, after a breakfast buffet of juices, yoghurts and croissants. Lunch and dinner were similarly good. After our 12-hour flight, the chicken noodle soup served in the room to us on arrival was the perfect tonic; the following evening a fried tuna salad was nicely flavoured with lemongrass and chilli.

Location 

The hotel is on the outskirts of Ubud, an hour outside of Denpasar, Bali, made famous by the book Eat, Pray, Love. Off a busy street, the hotel complex is calm and serene.
