Think that eco-conscious accommodation means missing out on those holiday indulgences? Think again.
No longer does an eco-friendly holiday mean budget homestays without air-con or mod-cons. Today, sustainable resorts reign supreme, home to all of life’s little luxuries – and then some. Here in Bali, eco-stays are the epitome of luxury travel, and one of our faves is Ulaman Eco Retreat – an environmentally-friendly five-star resort that doubles up as an all-natural holistic retreat.
Hidden away in Kaba Kaba Village (close to both Canggu and Ubud), Ulaman is for travellers who want to live more consciously without compromising on holiday indulgences. It’s where luxury, wellness, and comfort collide – all in one breathtaking destination. We’re talking magnificently flowing bamboo architecture, a custom-curved infinity pool, and in-house chefs that use raw and organic ingredients, direct from the local farmers.
You’ll even find a sublime tree-house spa, as well as meditation sessions and yoga classes in the hanging bamboo shala – just some of the many experiences at this eco-conscious hideaway that are designed to enhance your physical and emotional well-being. And the best bit? All of this is nestled among lush forests, a magical swimmable jungle waterfall, Balinese rice fields, and spectacular river landscapes….
You’ll love it because… Ulaman Eco Retreat is a boutique-style eco-resort that captures the pure natural beauty of its surroundings. Located off the beaten path yet close to both Canggu and Ubud, you can’t help but notice the attention to detail and natural aesthetics throughout the resort, from the custom-made furniture and interior design, to the thoughtful and cultural experiences during your stay.
You’ll want to try… alllll the adventures that let you explore the local culture and natural scenery. You can sightsee by bike through the local villages and temples, Subak trek around the paddy fields and even learn the art of Balinese cooking and Batik scarf making with the wholesome itinerary of in-house workshops.
Come back for the… complete lineup of wellness services, like the personal detox and juicing programs. Even the resort’s extensive organic farm-to-table menu is designed to cleanse and renew, with delicious local and western cuisine as well as vegetarian and vegan options too…
See you in the jungle, Honeys!
