Ubud, Bali offers culture, serenity, and solitude; it is the heart and soul of Bali. I always recommend that honeymooners choose at least two different areas of Bali – Ubud is always a must-see, but you will probably want to soak up the rays at one of Bali's stunning beaches. If you can only go to one region of Bali, it should be Ubud. It is the most authentic Bali region, and it is the center of culture and art. You will find charming villages, ancient temples, remarkable rice terraces, endless art galleries and museums, and world-class hotels. These are the sexiest honeymoon resorts in Ubud.
Found in the rural rice paddy fields, the 46-room COMO Uma Ubud Bali has the atmosphere of a hillside home – well, a home with decorated courtyards and infinity-edged plunge pools.

Try the Bali Canyon Tubing and ATV Tour, which involves a six-kilometer float down the river and a thrilling quad-bike experience afterward.
