Ubud – Arrive in Bali with a Flavorful Introductory Dinner
Ubud is a city of culture and prestige that embodies the Hindu spirit and traditional lifestyle of the island set amongst the Central Highlands. Contemporary cafes line the central streets with the nearly 30 acres of the Sacred Monkey Forest brushing against the edges of city life. Rice terraces rise along the nearby hills, and rushing waters wind along the floor the fringing ravines. Sculptures depicting Garuda protect old temples and artists that fashion ancient spirits and gods out of wood, stone, or silver. Your flight will land at Ngurah Rai International Airport in Denpasar.
Your private transfer will meet you upon your arrival and escort you along a short and scenic drive to Ubud. Hyacinth and frangipanis blossom over sporadic villages as the scent of jasmine blows through the air. The jungle canopy sweeps across the hillsides and opens over the rice fields and terraces on the outskirts of Ubud. Your luxurious hotel overlooks the emerald hues of the countryside while offering easy access to the vibrant culture that emanates from the city center, where the Royal Palace stands. Your first taste of Bali will come in the form of a five-course meal prepared at a local award-winning restaurant.
En route to the restaurant, you will find the fruity aroma of fresh chili blending with the herbaceous scent of anise. The restaurant blends traditional Balinese features with contemporary elegance and luxury. All of the ingredients are sourced from around the island with the theme of blending traditional and modern elements spreading to the cuisine. Your first dish will arrive at your table with wild leaves dressed with peanuts, hibiscus vinegar, and pyramid salt for a light and satisfying first taste of the island.
