'Contemporary & Delightfully Rural'
Located in the Ubud region of Bali, the Uma by COMO Ubud is a boutique resort which offers guests a range of relaxation, leisure and exploration activities. You can choose to unwind in the spa at Como Shambhala Retreat (shuttle provided) or wake up to a morning yoga session or village & rice paddies walk. The style of your room, suite or villa is that of a light, tropical hillside home, many have views of the gardens or more extensive jungle panoramas plus private pools and expansive sun decks. The layout of the resort is lush greenery with meandering paths. Dining is either traditional or contemporary Italian or Indonesian and the cookery class should not be missed!
In Our Opinion
‘The interior of Bali is quite breath-taking and the location of Uma is just about remote enough to give that totally remote feeling yet it is only a 30 minutes’ walk (or free shuttle ride) to Ubud town’
Menus at Kemiri combine local produce with the techniques of classic Indonesian cuisine. There is a choice of a la carte and set menus, plus signature healthy COMO Shambala dishes on offer. Guests are treated to a beautiful open-air space beside a waterfall-fed pond with a changing ambience from day to night. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
With a staff of cocktail specialists, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic, including healthy smoothies and fresh-pressed fruit juices, drinks are available from 10:00 to midnight.

An Italian inspired restaurant and lounge bar which has an informal atmosphere with outdoor terraces and at the heart of the space is a large communal dining table.
