Recommended Luxury Hotels with Infinity Pools in Ubud

Wapa di Ume is just a bit to the North of Ubud on the outskirts of the city. The setting is picturesque. A river runs through the centre of the resort giving the perfect backdrop for the infinity pool.

Pita Maha Ubud from $282
The Pita Maha Ubud Resort is the first resort on this list that is within walking distance of Ubud centre. It is set in carefully landscaped grounds on the slopes of the Tjampuhan valley. The highlight of the resort is the infinity pool that offers sweeping views of rice terraces and tropical woodland. Pita Maha Resort and Spa only offers private villas. The villas are decorated with hand-woven fabrics and furniture blending together traditional and modern Balinese design.
Reviews of the resort on Agoda highlight the location and the great views and food served at the restaurant. While reviews were overwhelmingly positive guests did identify a few issues. For example as the resort is set on the slopes of a valley you need to climb a lot of steps. Something to consider if you have problems walking.
Komaneka at Bisma from $311
Komaneka at Bisma is a 44-room luxury resort set in 5km of rice fields and tropical rainforest surrounding Ubud. The resort offers a both private villas and suites for guests. Each of the villas has an infinity pool overlooking the rice terraces and coconut groves in the valley below.
Reviews by guests of the Komaneka by Bisma enjoy the location of the hotel, surrounded by jungle, the service, staff call you by name, and of course the infinity pool. Though the hotel is a bit dated, it has a rustic charm that guests compliment. The flip side of the location is that the Komaneka Bisma is quite far outside of Ubud. Though there is a free shuttle service available for guests.
Hanging Gardens of Bali from $532
The infinity pools at the Hanging Gardens of Bali are widely recognized as one of the best in the world. The two-tiered cascading pools were named by Condé Nast Traveller as the “World’s Best Swimming Pool.” The location is dramatic overlooking the Ayung River and the ancient Dalem Segara temple. The 44 private villas have open planned design with balconies overlooking the thickly wooded slopes of the valley.
With a reputation as being the luxury hotel with the best infinity pool in Ubud the resort has a lot to live up to. While service is overall excellent and the villas are beautiful reviews on Booking highlight issues with location. The location is a bit far from the Ubud centre. A more fundamental issue is the fact that the villas look over each other so you do not get complete privacy.
The Viceroy Bali from $558
The Viceroy Bali is an exclusive family owned resort famous with international travellers who are looking for a tropical getaway. The resort is located in Bali’s “Valley of the Kings,” a name given to the area by locals because for generations Balinese royalty have lived in the area.

Feedback left by guests about the hotel on Agoda is overwhelmingly positive. Guests compliment the luxurious private villas, beautiful setting and great food. While most guests leaving reviews found the service from staff impeccable, many felt the service could be improved. Though a small issue for a hotel of this quality it is something that should be resolved.
