Where to stay whilst the festival is on in Ubud?
There are tons of accommodation styles and types all over Ubud. Whether you want to stay in a 5-star resort, hotel or a Villas in Ubud the range is huge. One thing we do suggest is that because of the popularity of the festival that you do book before you arrive as you do not want to be left without accommodation. Remember, you don’t have to be staying in the heart of Ubud. You can stay in other areas like Sanur, Gianyar or Ketewel, which also has loads of accommodation and is only 30 min by taxi to Ubud. This could be a great viable option.
