Bali | Ubud

The world is big and I want to get a good look at it before it gets dark
— John Muir

Ubud has been on my checklist for Bali for awhile now, when we were deciding on wedding locations - we looked at many places overseas like Greece, the Seychelles etc. I had at first really wanted a beach wedding because I love summer, I am a summer baby - any holiday I get I need to have the ocean nearby & an abundance of greenery.

However things came about that I started to entertain the idea of a beautiful lush green canopy for our wedding, as I began to get bored of all the beach wedding photos and then I found this beautiful spot in Ubud. 

Whilst in Ubud, we generally spent time with family & were busy organizing the last few bits & bobs for our wedding. A lot of our time was spent at the Royal Pita Maha (our wedding venue)  & it's sister hotels Pita Maha Resort & Tjampuhan Hotel.

Owned by the Royal family of Indonesia, these hotels are stunning, with their villas built in amongst the natural surroundings that descend down into the banks of the Ayung River.

The grounds are large and expansive, and intensely breathtaking in its natural beauty. Cannot wait to show you the photos from our wedding which will encapsulate it so much better than I can with my little camera.

I did manage to make it to Bridges and Hujan Locale (feautured below) to eat and was not disappointed.

Hujan Locale was a delight! Delicious fresh fruit drinks (I go nuts for this in South East Asia, as it's so expensive in Tokyo), the artisan pizzas, and the thoughtful, delicious fusion cuisine.

Ubud is the cultural hub of Bali, filled with stunning natural landscapes, amazing museums, performances, history (just wish I had had more time to chill & relax there) and amazing infinity pools looking over the lushness of Bali's canopies or rice fields.

Above the beautiful main infinity pool at the Pita Maha Resort (the mid-range hotel of the three Royal family hotels) and below our private infinity pool at our beautiful villa in the Royal Pita Maha. The pool was so big I couldn't get a snap of it in one shot standing outside!

Goodbye to Ubud! Such a lovely view to wake up to every morning - I wish it could be! Ubud was magical. I cannot wait to show you our wedding photos.
