Capella Ubud, a luxurious “Glamping” tented camp in the middle of Bali’s rainforest
Inspired by the early European settlers from the 1800s, celebrated architect Bill Bensley conceptualized this refined tented camp as a tribute to their spirit of adventure amidst untouched nature.
Nestled between Ubud’s rainforest, rice paddy fields and the sacred Wos River, in an authentic Balinese artist village called Keliki, Capella Ubud, Bali offers 22 extravagant, individually styled one-bedroom tents and one tented two-bedroom lodge.
Each includes a river stone-lined plunge pool and an outdoor bathroom with a roll top brass tub where one can bathe whilst being soothed by the sounds of the sacred Wos River.
Food & Beverage selections include Mads Lange – the camp’s dining room, Api Jiwa – an intimate and highly interactive Asian barbecue and The Mortar and Pestle pool bar. The Camp Fire is not merely the place to meet the local storyteller over pulled hot chocolate and toasted marshmallows but, weather permitting, an equally great venue for casual dining.
The tented gymnasium, The Armory, is for guests who wish to work out in style and yoga and Pilates by design, whilst an invigorating weekly schedule, with a diverse range of low and high impact camp activities further complement your exercise regime.
Adventure wellness, pampering spa treatments designed around the moon phases, spiritual and sound healing as well as in-retreat rituals are on offer at Auriga Wellness.
The Officers Tent, exclusive to guests of Capella Ubud, Bali is the camp’s living room where morning coffee, afternoon tea and the daily evening cocktail and canapé ritual are served. The unobtrusive and highly personalised services of a dedicated Capella Culturist further complement your stay.
The camp is adorned with handpicked valuable antique art objects, books, paintings, drawings and furniture, some of which are from the owner’s treasured private collection. The owner, Mr. Suwito Gunawan, is a prominent business man from Jakarta and an avid art collector.
No tree was cut during construction so that the refined jungle camp remains a hidden sanctuary from afar. It captures the imagination of those who aspire a truly unique experience that allows them to enjoy the essence of Ubud’s untouched natural surroundings in personalised and stylish comfort.
Capella Ubud, Bali is set within a dramatic terraced landscape, with prominent rice paddies surrounding the entrance, leading through a densely forested valley all the way down to the sacred Wos river.
