Hotel Review: Plataran Resort and Spa, Ubud, Bali

This is a lovely resort ideally located about a 5 minute walk from Ubud’s famous Monkey Forest, and right on the strip of shops, restaurants, and bars – yet secluded enough to be in another world.

Upon check-in we are given a welcome drink and a cold wet towel before being ushered into a small buggy that takes us to our standard room that will be our home for the next 2 days. The short drive to our room is surprisingly narrow, yet lush with greenery and statues of Hindu gods made of stone.We pass the well-equipped gym (which I don’t end up using due to the flu which keeps me bedridden for most of my stay), and a stunning infinity pool – one of 2 that the resort offers.

Our room is the entry category, a standard studio, but has all the requisite requirements including bathtub, Balinese amenities, and an evening turn down service with cakes. The bed is super-comfy and I sleep well on both nights.

Complimentary afternoon tea is served daily from 4pm – 5pm and although basic, offers a stunning view of the 2nd pool and rice fields below. The venue also serves as the breakfast and dinner restaurant.

There are also a number of complimentary resort activities including Balinese arts and craft, and Yoga, as well as paid activities including Pilates, cooking class, and bicycle tour.

Highly recommended for a short stay in Ubud.
