Kupu Kupu Barong Villas & Tree Spa
Travel Blogs from Ubud
Before heading towards Ubud we went to Klapa resort for a drink and to take in the seaside view. However after an hour here I was itching to reach our next destination.
The best part of the day was spent travelling to our next destination, Kupu Kupu Barong in Ubud. This is another wonderful resort, this time perched high in the rainforests …
... Bali - there are around 20000 on the island!) which is famous for its holy water and is where Hindu people go for purification. There are tiga (3) pools with Lima belas (15) waterfalls all together in which you enter the pool (fully clothed - top and sarong) and at each waterfall you make a wish (close eyes and make hands into prayer position) and then put your head under the water. All I can say is I hope my wish comes true as it was very cold, but it will be ...
... when we got out the taxi and walked to find our accommodation. Lots of people saying "taxi" and "room" the backpacks and the flight luggage labels let people know we were fresh off the plane. We eventually found where we wanted to stay it was on a quieter street and was in a nice garden setting with bungalows scattered around. A safe haven from the craziness on the main streets of Ubud! Nasi Goreng and a Bintang for dinner. It had to be ...
... with them and how they liked living near me and how I go to yoga etc etc. They even new I was going to Keramas today. Talk about feeling special.
Well thats it for today. It is raining again now and I can hear the family in the compound behind washing, talking, singing and the old man still trying to clear his throat. It is soooo gross!! Lets hope their roosters don't cock a doodle do all night like they did last night???!!!
... leading to a weekend of great friends whom locally showed us there culture….Italy…you are so filled with humbling of people, and are granted with amazing culinary talent and raw traditions to not be forgotten! All ended in a great weekend as I believe I didn’t ride with the dark of getting all stolen rather turned it around and kept the train in functioning gear ending in a weekend of many memories.
Yet another challenging event within ...

The rooms are cosy and spacious. The dinning is good, but the main thing this place has to offer is the amazing view, its worth the stay in itself.

Historical Traveler Reviews Kupu Kupu Barong Villas & Tree Spa Ubud
We spent in KKB 3 nights in July 2006 which was a part of our honeymoon stay in Bali. Our impressions of the hotel are ambiguous.
We had both good and unpleasant experiences at KKB during our 5 night stay in May.
Kupu Kupu Barong is the BEST! My husband and I spent the best 4 days there. I just read the review before this and agree with everything they said. There are a few things in particular that made Kupu Kupu special:
We just arrived home from four of the most glorious days at Kupu Kupu Barong. Our stay at Kupu, I am sure, will be remembered as a lifetime treat. Budi, Suastika and Wayan, our butlers, took such good care of us and our accommodations in the Royal Suite were so beautiful from the inside to the outside (killer views), our meals were delicious and beautifully served and presented (including breakfast by our pool), our warm greetings every time we returned from an excursion from the staff and our fabulous massages were so appreciated, thoroughly enjoyed and always remembered.
Mixed feelings about KKBarong. Quick summary of positives and negatives:
Great hotel !!!
Pretty nice hotel, very helpful staff, really luxury villas.
We spent 3 nights in a villa with a plunge pool, it was awesome. The view from your private balcony is simply gorgeous. The restaurant provides various menu and some delicious meals. You can also enjoy a spa at the top a tree (I think it was a Mango). A peaceful retreat in the heart of Bali.
a perfect stay for a honeymoon. I recommend it !!
Immensely beautiful and charmed by its natural beauty and superb service
This is our first honeymoon in Bali and was extremely delighted to have chosen Kupu Kupu Barong. We had really enjoyed the quiet ambience and natural scenery there including our private plunge pool, romantically decorated villas, the spa villas combined with the warm hospitality from the staff. We hope to go back there in the near future and highly recommend this especially for honeymooners.
I just come back from Bali, and my only thoughts are when do I go back to Kupu Kupu Barong !!!
We stayed in a villa overlooking the Arung river that had a private plunge pool along with a veranda attached to the villa. We had a butler to bring whatever we requested. Our room was featured on the cover of an Asia magazine for the months of Aug/Sept 2005, it was that pretty. We had breakfast served in our room every day if we chose not to go tho the restaurant, we had a private dinner and 2-90 minute massages.
when you arrive at the hotel the first impression is not so good: you do not understand if it is a private property or you are in the middle of a local village: a few shops, a little fruit market before entering the main gate..., a messy forest, lots of dogs!!! The lobby is nice and the Spa, too. The staff is friendly and helpful, but I think they need to be trained. To reach the rooms you need to use an electrical machine: ours was very far away in the forest and it took us five minutes to reach it. It was very nice, with a private pool, huge windows with wonderful view of the valley and the river, king size bed and bathroom with both bath and shower (all fully refurbished). The price was really value for money, because this special summer offer included breakfast daily, dinner daily and 90 minutes treatments at the Spa, otherwise the full price is too high for this property.
