Ubud is located around 35 km north-east of the airport, and the drive takes about 90 minutes depending on traffic.

Because it’s in Bali’s foothills, the air is cooler than in the coastal parts of Bali. Surrounded by verdant jungle, rice paddies and coconut palms, Ubud teems with life – with chickens and Bali dogs, geckos and frogs – and tropical fruit and flowers grow at an astonishing rate in the lush climate.
