There’s nothing that screams luxury accommodation like an infinity pool overlooking the luscious green rice fields in Ubud and in my opinion there is no one that has achieved this better than Padma Resort in Ubud. Boasting an incredible 89 meter infinity pool, with some of the most tranquil views over the rice terraces of Ubud, Padma Resort in Ubud offers the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate in the Balinese jungle.
After the success and popularity of Padma Resort Legian, the Ubud Resort is the latest addition to the Padma family, located in Payangan, approximately 13km from the centre of Ubud. This five star property offers the ultimate luxury surrounded by the luscious greenery of the jungle and without a doubt have some of the most helpful and kindest 24 hour reception staff I have ever met. I have checked into many, many hotels and I was honestly blown away by the efficiency and overall attitude of the Padma Resort staff, they were absolutely exceptional in every way!
We were lucky enough to be some of the first people to stay at Padma Resort in Ubud, staying within the first month of the resort being open. As the resort was so new it was beautifully quiet when we were visiting, so we often had the pool almost completely to ourselves. The wonderful staff at Padma also gave us a free room upgrade, to the a Premier Deluxe Room, which was a nice surprise.
Padma Resort Ubud offers free airport transfers, free buffet breakfast and free afternoon tea to all their guests. The breakfast was one of the best hotel buffets I have ever seen, with hot foods, cereals, fruit, traditional Balinese food, pastries, cakes, crepes and pancakes and even made to order omelets. If you plan your breakfast right, you might not have to eat again for most of the day! There is free wifi throughout the whole resort, the coldest air conditioning you could wish for in this humid climate, and a free hourly shuttle from the resort to the centre of Ubud.
If you are too relaxed to ever leave the resort you can also dine at The Puhu Restaurant and Lounge, located on the top floor of the resort overlooking the stunning grounds and infinity pool and boasting 180 degree views across the bamboo forest and the rice paddies. With your meal you should definitely order a side of wok fried/steamed broccoli, which comes in a mouth watering garlic sauce. I know that I am more obsessed with broccoli than the average person, but honestly, best I have ever tasted! I couldn’t recommend Padma Resort Ubud highly enough, the entire experience was truly outstanding.
