The latest creation of Bill Bensley
Where lush forests meet impeccable service and unique experiences
Enjoy total immersion in a jungle in an exclusive ultra-luxurious tented camp experience, right in the heart of Bali. The four-hectare Capella Ubud is tucked away between the rainforest and rice terraces along the Wos River, where guests can spot local Keliki villagers gathering for festive processions. Renowned architect and designer Bill Bensley created this retreat in the rainforest, inspired by the first European explorers who came to Bali in the early 1800s.
One such intrepid explore was Danish spice trader Mads Lange—which is the name of the signature restaurant that specialises in seasonal and sustainably farmed produce. Other dining options include Mortar and Pestle for light poolside snacks and healthy eating options—all drinks are handcrafted using traditional methods like a mortar and pestle, hence the name, to minimise any unwanted noise pollution.
An array of activities await, including a pampering spa treatment at the renowned Auriga Spa, as well as jungle boot camps, mud Pilates, barre-based classes and a chance to interact with the Keiliki villagers at the camp’s temple with a natural spring as they perform a cleansing ritual. For a unique dining experience, visit a coffee and cocoa plantation, or have a private picnic in the jungle.
End the day with a well-deserved rest in one of the tented retreats—choose your view of the jungle, river or rice terraces. Each of these retreats have a private salt water pool and large outdoor decks, with natural light and fresh air circulation. Guests will enjoy the use of an exclusive range of organic bathroom amenities and even a soap menu.
