Lying in the rural village of Bresela, this enchanting resort is only 25 minutes from the cultural hotspot of Ubud but in a beautifully serene setting. The scent of tropical flowers fills the air whilst the gentle trickle of water flowing, the chorus of birds singing, and the melodious notes of wind chimes come together to create the perfect soundtrack to your stay. Just 38 suites and villas give an exclusive and boutique feel to Kayon, and all are tucked into the lush hillside offering panoramic views over the valley to the mist-clad hills beyond. After a day in the steamy heat exploring the arty galleries, studios, and markets of Ubud or spotting the long-tailed macaques in the Ubud Monkey Forest, retreat to the multi-tiered swimming pool. The design of this stunning pool was inspired by the legendary rice terrace of Tegalalang, relax under shady cabanas offering respite from the sun and take in the views which are pure heaven. Next to the Kepitu Restaurant there is a retail space styled on a traditional Bresela market and operated by villagers, where guests can browser the Balinese handicrafts, jewellery and textiles, there is also a museum dedicated to renowned Balinese architect and sculptor I Gusti Nyoman Lempad and a curated display of his work can be seen. Kayon Jungle Resort also boasts a beautiful spa, fitness centre and two restaurants.
