We checked out the refined new look of Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa, with its revamped facilities, brand new event spaces, family friendly destinations and so much more!
Renowned for its natural beauty, warm hospitality and richness in art and culture, Ubud is a picture-perfect paradise for immersing in Bali’s very best bits. And lucky for us culture vultures, there’s one Ubud resort in particular that puts Indonesia’s cultural heritage and awe-inspiring nature at the forefront… We’re of course talking about Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa.
A refined sanctuary surrounded by Ubud’s emerald green rice paddies, Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa is ensconced in both nature and culture. Its elegantly-designed rooms and suites overlook perfectly manicured tropical gardens, an ancient holy water temple, and the resort’s two stunning infinity pools, topped off by five-star facilities – think gourmet restaurants, a world-class spa, fully-equipped gym and an entire team of hospitality experts. It’s no wonder Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa was named “Bali’s Leading Lifestyle Hotel” by the Bali Tourism Awards in 2022…
Well, just when we thought this tranquil hideaway couldn’t get any more blissful, Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa has recently unveiled a breathtaking new look and facilities to celebrate its re-launch in May 2023. And you’ll notice the elevated experience the moment you step through Plataran Ubud’s al fresco doors, starting with its freshly revamped Khatulistiwa Lobby and Pathway that seamlessly takes you on a nature-hugged tour of the grounds, leading to your Ubud abode. On the way, you’ll spot the resort’s refreshed amenities too, like the newly added family-friendly facilities for keeping adventurous kids occupied, or the Kinandari Venue that offers a magical space for your next special occasion…
Refined & revamped: A stay at Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa
A five-star stay at Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa begins with a seamless check-in at the newly refurbished Khatulistiwa Lobby. It’s been specially designed to welcome guests with art, history and culture from across the Indonesian archipelago, giving you a first taste of the cultural experiences that follow. You’re then taken through the Khatulistiwa Pathway that pays homage to the beauty of nature and the wonderful Balinese culture. The pathway lets you enjoy a scenic tour of the grounds, before ending in your elegant room or suite fit for Indonesian royalty.
Along the way, you can make a few stops at all the modern-meets-traditional facilities that you’ll get to enjoy during your stay. The Paddy’s Deck is the perfect space to start the day with a serene yoga sesh before fuelling up with a selection of hearty dishes at The View – the resort’s iconic restaurant, where you can also take part in mixology classes, learn how to make jamu, AKA a traditional Indonesian elixir, or partake in an outdoor cooking class in a traditional kitchen setting at Paon Bali. By nightfall, the Kamaratih Deck is where it’s at for a romantic dinner beneath the stars…
A dreamy venue for your next special event
Another new addition to Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa is the sophisticated Kinandari Venue Complex. A blend of traditional opulence and modern luxury, the space has been designed to host any special event – from elegant afternoon soirées, to dreamy weddings surrounded by the magical sounds of nature. The complex houses three unique spaces to suit events of all sizes: there’s the indoor Saraswati Lounge for small gatherings or business meetings, whilst taking centre stage is the Trees – a breathtaking glasshouse surrounded by lush gardens and soft lighting, perfect for an intimate wedding. Then, for larger events, there’s the 241sqm outdoor Banyan Tree Deck, standing between stunning rice fields and trickling water features.
All the family-friendly facilities you need for your mini travellers
Between taking a dip in the infinity pool, grazing on sumptuous food and blissing out with a spa treatment, you might be wondering how the little ones will get to enjoy their Ubud vacay. Well, Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa has got everything covered on that front too, with plenty of kid-friendly destinations and family amenities. Little explorers can run wild in the resort’s Mini Farm, where they’ll meet furry friends and participate in animal feeding. They’ll also love the al fresco Plataran Junior kids club, inviting mini guests to take part in fun activities, games and cultural adventures that will keep them busy all day long.
With so many new additions, a refreshed look and a unique stay experience that blends Indonesia’s traditions with modern luxury, we can certainly see why Plataran Ubud Hotel & Spa is described as Bali’s “Inside Out Haven”. Happy holidays, Honeys!
