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 …
... for 200,000 rupiahs, or about £10! Meanwhile, while Vin goes back to the hotel to sort out a few things that need to be done for the next part of the trip. We go out later that night for a spot of food and a beer, but we’ve got an early start tomorrow so we head back before too long.
The next morning is pretty early for us. We look out the window and we’re fairly pleased that the sky isn’t as grey and heavy as it has been for the ...
... I had at the volunteering programme. I had chosen vegetable lumpias, ayam saté (chicken satay), a green bean dish and some rice. It was really yummy. I had agreed to meet Wayan at 12.45 after to take me to see some agricultural aspects of Ubud. Our first stop was the rice terraces at Tegallatang which is 10 minutes outside of Ubud by scooter (after you've negotiated the twisting roads, heavy tourist tour bus traffic and debris on ...
... a dessert or a coffee and ended up also ordering a big bowl of soup and bread!
Hahaha. I ate so much in Ubud.
But the food all sounded so delicious! As soon as I would eat, I would walk around and seriously read every menu at every restaurant I passed.
It was impossible to not eat and eat and eat.
I went back to the hostel and chatted with some people who were going on a volcano climb at 2AM and invited me to go with them!
I of course agreed, so we headed ...
... to take us to a shop that makes batik where we were able to purchase various items. (which we did)
We then headed to an egg painting shop where they paint on wooden eggs, duck eggs, ostrich eggs and chicken eggs. Very detailed and beautiful work.
After egg painting Wayan dropped us off at the Monkey Forest where there are hundreds of monkeys walking, swinging ...

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.
