I am entered into the Las Vegas WBFF in August. I am going to be in Ubud during the 3 months leading up to the comp. Can anyone recommend a PT that would be able to work with me?
I'd read some really conflicting reviews of the above place, and while the setting looks fantastic, the food looked awfully lacklustre and expensive. Given that it's a bit off the beaten path, are there any other places of the same range and style nearby that you could recommend? Or....even closer to town, but preferably with elevation.
We arrive Friday evening.
does anyone recognize Putu from this picture?
He was our driver when we stayed in Ubud Feb to March 2010.
Now we are coming back i December and would love to have him as out driver again, but I cant find his business card with mail address or phone.
Anyone out there able to help?

Hello, i am thinking about booking a holiday to Bali in July, staying in Ubud.

Would anyone have any clue if I could get good roman blinds, bali blinds or curtains near ubud?

hi i'm looking for cheap places to stay in ubud ? will be travelling solo in jan 2014. Clean place with friendly people around ..
We will be in Ubud for 2 days only and are looking for fairly central accommodation. We want to see the Monkey Forest, and stroll around the sites (I don't want to have to hire a car). We'd also like to see some of the rice field (I do understand that without a car we'll be on the beaten track).
We're after a private room, with ensuite. Clean but doesn't have to be fancy, that will allow us to appreciate Ubud by foot. Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.

I am wondering if there is anywhere in Ubud, or anywhere else in Bali where these wood carvers take on apprentices. I am amazed at the beauty of the wood sculpture I see from Bali, and especially Ubud, and I am hoping that there is some way that I can train/study under a woodcarver, whether formally or informally, for at least a year. But any help with any specifics about any carving courses would be appreciated. But I am hoping to find a carver who will be kind enough to take me on as a pupil/apprentice.
looks like there is currently quite a few thunder storms, thought june would be dry season. Is there much rain in ubud area at the moment and is it at night usually or all day as well?
I was recently recommend UBUD as a destination to consider for time out to recover my health, and reignite my spirit, emotionally, physically and artistically. I am single, a photographer / graphic designer and seek a safe place to call home for 2 mths.
On my wish list is the following:
- A quaint place to stay, picturesque, lush, and quiet ( budget $50 per night)
- Air con & a good swimming pool that I can exercise in.
- Easily accessible to markets, cafes, town - as I cant walk distances due to an injured foot. Though I have heard its easy to get around by public transport
- Would like to also engage in art workshops - and even cooking ones would be great too
- Affordable daily massages
- Sound baths or similar if they exist
- Gentle exercise classes
- Open to other forms of healing...
Advise given to me was to find a nice place to stay and then go and visit a place called the Yoga Barn as from there I could find many opportunities for health / healing networking and so forth etc.
Does anyone have any tips for art workshops of any kind? A central place like the Yoga Barn maybe and a website perhaps etc.
Are their any forums one can use to network - maybe to find other people in Ubud where one can share interests - ie photography, or just hook up for coffee etc.
I am planning to go Sept / October
I am not a beach or bar person. More inclined to seek peaceful environs....
Many thanks in anticipation.
P.S. I am in my 40's so I would like some comforts but it doesn't have to be extravagant. Gone are the days of backpacking :)
When you travel as a single mum, it is not so easy to just meet people.. :-P
My daughter, 11 years old and I (a bit older) are in Bali for 6 weeks. First we were in Sanur for 1 week, now we have been in Ubud since monday the 1th Oct. We love it here and we are going to stay until we go home.
I am a painter, so YES Ubud is really a great place to be for someone like me.. but it would be nice to get some friends while we're here :-)
Hi, I am traveling through SE Asia right now and am planning to make my way to Ubud in the next two months to try and get a job and live there for possibly 3-6 months. I am hoping to get a job teaching English, but if that isn't viable I will try and get a job bartending.
Could anyone suggest what visa I would need to get and the steps? Also, anyone have recommendations for institutions looking for English teachers?
I'll be in Ubud on 21-24 March. Yes, I know it's Nyepi week and noone should be out walking around, no lights, yadayadayada. I understand that on 22-March (a day before Nyepi/Seclusion day), there will be the Ogoh-ogoh parade. Can any of VT-ers from Ubud tell me the location of the parade, the time of the parade, what to pack (aside from photography equipment) and what to expect from the parade?
Thanks in advance
Has anyone had a massage with Mr Nyoman at Iman Intuitive Bodywork Spa? Would you recommend it and should it be booked prior to getting there? I have been trying to contact them via email to no avail.
Hi. My wife and I are planning to have our second honeymoon in Bali this December. Would it make a difference, temperature-wise and crowd-wise, if we went first or second week?
We only have 4-5 nights,and wish to see the ff :
legong, topeng and/or barong rangda dance
mask-making, puppet-making, wood carving, batik-making ( and a small bit of shopping for these at good prices)
Pura Ulun Danu Batur (old & new)
Monkey Forest temples (avoiding areas with too many wild macaques as much as possible)
Goa Gajah / Bedulu / maybe Gianyar / Pura Dalem Sidan
Pura Penataran Sasih
Puri Agung Karangasem
Pura Ulun Danu Bratan
Tenganan and Candidasa if time permits
Pura Meduwe Kawang if time permits
Pura Beji if time permits
Balinese cooking class if time permits
We do NOT want to see snakes and pythons (much less be offered a photo with them or stroke them). We are NOT going to beaches as we have just gone to several really really good ones these past few months.
We would like to go to a good spa at least once or twice. We love taking photos. Above all, we love to eat eat eat, especially food like babi guling.
We are looking into Hotel Komaneka Tanggayuda in Ubud, although cheaper (but very clean and safe) hotel suggestions are welcome. Places to go to other than what is outlined above are very welcome too.
Is the itinerary above doable in 4-5 days' time? Can anyone recommend a good driver with a decent vehicle for hire? Do we need to hire someone for airport assistance? We do NOT need a visa, but would appreciate it if someone can help us ensure a quicker line movement in the airport and a more secure way of handling our luggage.
What is a good budget per day for food and the activities and places outlined above? There's just 2 of us.
What should we avoid?
Thank you all so much in advance.
Looking for somewhere in Ubud to stay, where we can easily walk to many restaurants.....$100USD range or less, but 4 star (ok....not realistic I know....haha). Advice? Location is the most important thing!

Hi there, I`m looking to chat with any Canadians who have travelled to Bali for a least 3 months or so.
What is the smoothest process to take in relocation-in terms of obtaining a visa for 3-6 months, (non working ) and if a healthy person on no medication requries any vaccinations.
If you have travelled or lived there recently ( or currently live) i`d love to chat with you. Thanks!
Hi all, has anyone stayed at the Bucuview hotel? So far, there have been no reviews yet about the hotel (which I can find online), so I was hoping if anyone has had any experiences to share. Many thanks!
