Kayumanis Ubud takes the indoor-outdoor experience to a whole new level. Walking through the lush jungle paths, doors are cut into stone walls that open up to private courtyards housing outdoor living and dining areas, beautiful swimming pools, and villas that put your average 5 star hotel room to shame. Taking a walk around the grounds, it doesn’t even feel like there are 23 villas nestled into the surrounding forests, let alone any other people. The space and privacy is incredible. The hotel is a vast 2.5 hectares of jungle with dozens of interconnecting paths, each leading to their own unique destinations.
One of those destinations is the beautifully balanced indoor-outdoor spa. Never have I had such a beautiful spa experience. From natural yoghurt scrubs, to possibly the most relaxing massages you’ve ever experienced – therapists ensure that every detail is perfect.
Kayumanis means cinnamon and you will experience this throughout the hotel -homemade products and creams smell of cinnamon, the pens to write with and spoons to stir with are fragrant cinnamon sticks.
Meanwhile at the restaurant, every table has a panoramic view of lush, tropical foliage. Diners eat to the sounds of waterfalls and cicadas, while indulging in local delicacies such as turmeric fish wrapped in leaves and steamed to perfection, or satay sticks with homemade peanut sauce and lemongrass, chilli salad. The service is impeccable without being intrusive, and you truly feel a sense of exclusivity and privacy.
If you feel inclined to eat a meal at your villa, or order 24-hour room service, don't worry; they bring the restaurant experience to you. From 3-tiered afternoon tea platters to elaborately laid out drinks and snacks, the staff at the hotel make sure every detail is perfect.
As the icing on the cake, Kayumanis Ubud has no pesky extra or hidden costs for anything. The hotel provides free private cars to take you to Ubud town, wifi, mini bar, afternoon tea, homemade cookies and snacks, breakfast, welcome massage and 24-hour butler on call - all completely complementary just for you.
