I recently got back from a magical week in Ubud, Bali. For the first couple of nights I stayed in the most incredible spot – I just had to share.


Kupu Kupu Barong Villas and Tree Spa by L’Occitane… This place is THE place to go for a romantic getaway – or just a place for you to simply disconnect from the world and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature.


A 5-star luxury experience found in Bali, nested on top of a flowing river that just fills you with positive energy and strength. This is where serenity and spirituality meet.

The Accommodation:

Rustic luxury. Balinese style rooms with an incredible view. My room has a stunning private pool that overlooked the river. Wow!

The luxury round bath in the middle of the bedroom was a highlight! So romantic! Enjoy a bubble bath with champagne each night – or perhaps an evening swim in your private pool? Paradise I say!




The Scenery:

Lush green everywhere you turn. The setting and peaceful surroundings allowed me to disconnect from the chaos of life and enjoy the quietness that nature has to offer. The sound of the flowing river put me to sleep each night. Heavenly…





The Food: 

A divine breakfast served in a bamboo birdcage where you are surrounded by chirping birds, butterflies, the sound of the flowing river and delicious French inspired food.

The La View restaurant has been named one of the most romantic destinations in Bali. You can enjoy a beautiful, candle-lit Balinese inspired dinner under the stars with a stunning backdrop of rainforest and the enchanting Ayung River Valley. They serve a five-course gourmet menu with plenty of healthy options too! Yay!




The Spa – Mango Tree Spa by L’Occitane

From the moment you enter Spa L’Occitane, the fragrances transport you to Provence.

The treatment menu and massage options are carefully developed by their global spa experts and are also heavily influenced by Balinese culture and tradition – which adds to the cultural experience of being in Bali. I enjoyed a divine treatment in the ultimate ‘room with a view’, sinking into relaxation the second I stepped into the space.




My time at Kupu Kupu was such a treat! I hope to be back soon xox

Thank you to The Asia Collective for helping me to organise such a wonderful getaway.
