Checking in at Padma Resort Ubud

Perched above a hill and looking out over natural jungles at the Payangan village, Padma Resort Ubud may be slightly farther away from the rest of town, but it is this remote location that makes it the perfect stay for those seeking to get away from southern Bali’s crowded hot spots.

The Look

Entering the hotel, guests are welcomed at the resort’s airy lobby, where sturdy pillars have been erected to hold up its wooden roof and Balinese wood carvings and art become the kind of little details that complete Padma Resort Ubud’s traditional feel.


Premier Room

The Rooms

The 149 rooms at Padma Resort Ubud are given a fresh and warm look, with wood being the dominating material and subtle touches of colorful batik motifs accentuating the space. Rooms are also equipped with LED TV and a Tre Vergnano espresso machine, while refreshing bathroom amenities all come from Archive. When done with a shower or returning from an afternoon swim, hang up your towels and swimsuits on the heated towel hanger, which helps warm up and dry wet items in no time. Each room also comes with a private balcony for guests to enjoy the quiet surroundings in a space of their own.

The Appeal

The resort’s Puhu Restaurant & Lounge is a spot where guests will get to enjoy the best of Ubud’s sunrise and sunset along with a wide range of culinary offerings, from Indonesian, Asian, to European cuisine. Try the chef’s homemade salmon gravlax platter and pan roasted chicken with ricotta cheese and wild mushrooms on the side, or order a simple snack for your afternoon.

The Surrounds

Located away from other properties in the town of Ubud, Padma offers pristine views of the valley and rice fields in a distance. When the sky is clear, the tip of Mount Agung is easily visible from the hotel.

For those in the know…
Choose the room facing east for the best view, where rays of sun will greet you right from your private balcony every morning during sunrise.
