WHERE EXACTLY IS THIS? Intensely gorgeous scenery surrounds this amazing home perched on top of the famous Campuhan Ridge Trail in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia. In a lovely village named Bankiang Sidem, its a stones throw from Karsa Kafe, famous on the trail and for the new spa just built this year. It is only 7 minutes from the Big Bintang (one of top three grocery stores in Ubud.) Ideal location for mountain trips, rafting, seeing the elephants, cycling and hiking right outside your door step. You can WALK the Campuhan trail right into town, about 30 minutes of breathtaking views and scenery the entire way, winding down the ridge and next to the river and the most important temple in Ubud (the reason ubud got its name) to the bridges.
HOW SHORT OF DRIVE FROM UBUD? The short 7 minute drive to Bintang Grocery will take you back to the yesteryears of the real Balinese villages, passing temples and dipping through the cool jungle air and over a river before popping up to tiered rice fields that stretch on forever as you turn onto your road. You are far removed from the traffic, smog and hectic craziness of Ubud without being far away.

WHY IS THIS AREA SPECIAL? The confluence of rivers on both sides of the ridge is the original heart of Ubud and how the name came about. In the 8th century a Javanese Hindu priest came to Bali and mediated at the confluence of the two Wos rivers at Campuhan. Ubud is translated to "medicine" or "healing." A temple was constructed at this site and still stands where the rivers merge from each side of the ridge. This temple is stunning and is being rehabbed now it is a sight to behold to see the intricacies of the detailed workmanship of old and new side by side! When you stay here, you understand the meridians and flow of energy here and why this location means healing. It is something to be felt, totally undescribable. I fell in love with this place the first moment I drove down the road. It is truely a magical and healing place to be experienced and felt.
WHAT IS CLOSE? FOOD/ MASSAGE/ ART NEARBY? You are living on the Campuhan trail! Walk out your front door, turn left, and in about 60 seconds you will be at a quaint little Cafe called Karsa Kafe with wifi where you can sit in a Bale, which is a covered wooden pagoda style building and feed the Koi fish underneath you in the pond. Grab a cold Bingtang Beer or fresh coconut and just watch the intense sunsets over the rice fields, differnet sunset show over rice fields free every night. Or...grab a massage at the brand new Karsa Spa there. Great prices and everything from reiki, sports massage, reflexology, manicures, facials and body scrubs with luxurious baths. There is another spa called Bliss Spa, a short stroll away, a nice fancy restaurant within walking distance, several Art shops, a few egg painters and traditional Balinese paintings are available nearby (as close as next door!) and a silver jewelry store within a few minutes walk. Snacks and drinks are available from several tiny local "shops" up and down the road.
WHO ARE THE NEIGHBORS? The village of Bankiang Sidem is stretched out along the Campuhan trail, made up of mostly Balinese and some expats. It's a secret treasure nestled away with steps down to the river to splash around and admire the temple built at the rivers edge. There are two temples on the trail, a hidden road to stroll down a rarely seen part of the village. Explore up and down the river, scamper over the massive rocks and see how many waterfalls you can find! Walking the trail is a must for every visitor, it is only a 30 minute walk from the doorstep on the top of the ridge to the twin bridges in Ubud. (Where there is a really nice restaurant--named--Bridges!) On this road, you get smiles from everyone, young and old alike. It is just the norm. So make sure you hand out as many as you get. If someone doesn't smile at you here, flash them one and see the massive grin you get back!!
