There are forest retreats in Asia, and then there is the Capella Ubud, imagined by the man of the hour, Bill Bensley. For a start, there is the location of the hotel, tucked away in the jungle of Ubud’s Keliki Valley. Then, of course, there is the design of the tented camp, with its playful, jungle-tangled plunge pools, spas with trees growing through them, and rooms with copper baths and batik-covered walls that open to views- and sounds- of the surrounding jungle, rice paddies and the Keliki Village. The result is a sensory overload of culture, and the hotel’s fire-pit cinema where you can toast marshmallows to screenings of old Bali movies, and its restaurants, each with a setting more unique than the next, do not hurt either. For more soul-stirring luxury, check into the spa for an escape from reality, while adventures like nature walks, sunrise volcano climbs and helicopter trips to Nusa Pedina are geared towards the more sporty types. For a taste of the wonders and myths of old Bali, the Capella Ubud can’t be beat.
