Ubud is a small town on the Indonesian island of Bali, with about 30,000 inhabitants, mostly Hindu, as on the rest of the island. Ubud is located amongst rice paddies, just 30 kilometers northwest of Denpasar, the administrative capital.

The town was originally important as a source of medicinal herbs and plants, in fact Ubud gets its name from the Balinese word ubad (medicine). Ubud's economy is heavily dependent on tourism and today is considered the cultural centre of Bali. Painting and textile art, traditional stone and wood carvings and silver crafts are the arts for which the city is famous. Other reasons why the city has become an important tourist center are the typical Balinese dances and especially yoga and meditation.

Come here for relaxation, for rejuvenation and to have what may well be the most magical holiday of your life.
