March and September are our months for a spot of travel, so when everyone started to jet off to exotic climes over Christmas & New Year I might have shed a tear or two as our spring jaunt felt like a million miles away! Fast-forward just two months and I’m currently in heaven…
Whilst I’m taking a little R&R time away from Coco HQ I thought I’d share a trip we took last year to the ever-so-blissful Balinese jungle.
Alila Ubud is quite magical; it’s a serenely simple retreat tucked into a hillside on the edge of the Ayung River in the traditional village of Payangan. Logistically, the nearest airport is Denpasar, which is about an hour by private transfer. The nearest town is Ubud, just 15 minutes from the resort, which is a buzzing hub of activity. So all in all, albeit a mighty 7,771 miles from home, once you’re here it’s a pretty great location!
