Ubud – Familial Immersion
As the plane descends into Ngurah Rai International Airport, you look out the window to see an endless sea of greenery sweeping over the undulating landscape to the north and reaching the sapphire waters of the Indian Ocean to the southwest. Your vacation in Bali begins as your flight lands, and your private transfer greets you at baggage claim, ready to lead the family to enchanting Ubud. The city is considered the cultural capital of Bali, famous for traditional dance performances, Hindu-Balinese ceremonies, and a deep connection to artistic heritage.
The scenic drive takes you through the lush landscape speckled with white and pink flowers growing along the bordering frangipani trees. Shops, cafes, and restaurants line the main streets of the city between interspersed temples. Your private transfer brings the family to a majestic luxury hotel overlooking the rice fields outside the city. The hotel rises out of a centrally located rice paddy, combining rural comforts with urban luxury and plenty of space for the family to enjoy.
For a splendid introduction to the unique charms of the city, you make your way to Petulu in the evening to view the white herons return to the village just a mile north of Ubud’s center. The trees around the open plain rustle. You can hear the birds chirp and squawk as they settle into the trees. The striped Java pond herons perch and nest in the canopy. Their white and brown plumage stands out from the jade leaves dangling from the branches. The graceful image and captivating scenery provide the perfect welcome for the family.
