Opened in 2004, Uma Ubud became COMO Hotels & Resorts second inland retreat dedicated to Uma's understated philosophy of quiet comfort in inspiring, culture-rich locations. Its arrival coincided with Uma Paro, which opened in the wildly beautiful Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan. Enjoy the adventure. At Uma Ubud, you won't fail to fall in love. Simply listen to the life - animals, birds and people - that exudes from Ubud's enchanted forests and mist-wrapped paddies. With Uma, expect an holistic, cultural adventure, complemented by the core of the COMO Shambhala experience, featuring yoga and Asian-inspired therapies devoted not just to the body but to spiritual wellbeing. Uma is ecologically aware, respecting the land in which its retreats are located. In design, each hotel reflects local aesthetics, combining indigenous detailing with a serene modernity, keeping the number of rooms deliberately limited. In cuisine, Uma incorporates local organic foodstuffs with sophisticated Asian-led traditions. Uma also acknowledges the greater wisdom of ancient cultures and the powerful salve of unspoilt spiritualism. Indeed, Uma offers more than the usual five-star hotel experience, but the opportunity to discover subtle layerings of landscapes and forgotten people. Enjoy this within the calming environment of each hotel's location or by active exploration of the surrounding region.

The hotel is hidden on the fringe of Ubud, overlooking the Tjampuhan Valley amid fenceless fields carved out of hillsides backed by the curve of coconut palms and banyan trees wrapped in vines. The river Oos runs below; to one side stands a mountain. This topography concentrates both magic and energy in the whispering grass concealing Uma Ubud.
On any day, guests can make use of English-speaking guides for excursions, including hiking, museum and festival visits. There are complimentary daily yoga classes available.

The Shambhala Suite, located on the southern edge of the resort, has possibly the best infinity-edge pool, and a private treatment area.
