Setting River deep, mountain high

Given the incredible valley scenery, the soothing sounds of Balinese wildlife, and the beautiful thatched balés that fill the place, it couldn’t fail.

Our favourite rooms
The views from the three Uma Pool Suites are hard to beat: from your infinity pool you can admire vast panoramas of the lush valley, right down to the Oos river meandering along the bottom. The Como suite has equally camera-friendly vistas, as well as the resort’s finest pool and its own spa treatment room.
Inland Bali is the perfect trekking ground so make sure you bring suitable shoes for jungle yomps – sturdy sandals should do the trick. Bring mozzie repellent too.
Uma by Como, Ubud can organise a range of activities, ranging from adrenaline-fuelled to serenity-filled. Try white-water rafting on the Ayung or biking the jungle. For more sedate thrills, learn yoga, batik, Indonesian puppet making, and mask painting.
