UBUD – HIGH CULTURE IN BALI’S CENTRAL HIGHLANDS

Ubud image

Bali is a unique enclave of hybrid Hinduism in the heart of the Indonesian archipelago – and at its heart in terms of culture, lies Ubud. It was to Ubud that the remains of the Majapahit Empire that ruled large swathes of modern day Indonesia fled as Islam took over 500 years ago. This is why the little town, ensconced amid rice terraces and rainforest, is such a vibrant and evolving hub of arts & high culture – from Balinese dance and music to painting and sculpture to theatre. There are countless museums and galleries showcasing ancient and contemporary arts, some influenced by the Bohemian influx of the early 20th century that sent Balinese ritual art in exciting new directions. Situated in the breathtakingly beautiful outskirts of Ubud, Karma Mayura is the perfect idyllic jumping off point for your Ubud explorations, itself infused with Balinese arts & culture and opulent contemporary comforts fit for royalty.
