When it comes to accommodation in Ubud, there’s everything from beautiful guesthouses, cheap hostels and affordable hotels, to luxurious jungle retreats, spa hotels and honeymoon resorts. Time to reveal my top suggestions for where to stay in Ubud, Bali.
Ubud is a town where you get a lot for your money! While there are a few larger hotels out of town (including luxury brands Viceroy and Four Seasons), the majority in the town centre are small guesthouses, villas and B&Bs and hostels.
Many Ubud accommodation options have pools, great facilities and include breakfast. I think you’ll be surprised when you see there are SOOOO many Ubud hotels with with private pools – and they’re not at luxury prices. It really is an amazing place for value!

I’ve split it into budget (under £40 per night), mid-range (£40-£100 per night) and then the out and out splurge luxury hotels, which are all over £100 (some by a long way!!)
