On Saturday, after enjoying the award-winning pool at Alila Ubud in the morning, we made our way into Ubud town for the first time. It didn’t take long before the chic, yet laid-back vibe won our favor. The town has a literal buzz about it…a combination of the motorbikes, taxis, and hotel vans roaring around the narrow streets, and the sidewalks filled with vacationers shopping in the chic boutiques and trendy cafes. Weaved effortlessly into this unique scene is the spiritual side of the town, which is emphasized by the countless shrines with fresh offerings lining the sidewalks. Ubud has a one-of-a-kind energy to it, and we feel right at home.
