Central Ubud Overview  

by on Friday, 25 March 2011No Comment | 1,256 views

Central Ubud is an interesting area where you can make hints what Ubud has to offer. Central Ubud has great restaurant and warungs, accomodation and interesting tourist destinations that serve as hallmarks of Ubud.

In Central Ubud you can visit Puri Saren, Ubud’ s main palace. This palace lies on the northeast comer of the town main crossroads facing the market, the exact center of Ubud. This is an elegant palace with cool nuance. Visitors are free to roam in inner courtyard of the palace to see the ornate thatched Bale (traditional house), royal heirlooms, and numerous colonial-era photographs.

Other interesting site is Pura Saraswati next to Puri Saraswati Bungalows, the royal temple of Ubud, that is situated near the Puri Saren Agung, behind Cafe Lotus. The temple is a masterpiece of I Gusti Nyoman Lempad. The visitors can find a magnificent lotus pond, beautiful garden, numerous of beautifully carved Bale and shrines. This temple is dedicated to the goddess of learning, Dewi Saraswati.

For art lovers, Central Ubud has Puri Lukisan, the “Painting Palace” of Ubud. This museum not just offers beautiful painting but also magnificent statues, a nice place to relax while enjoying beautiful work of art.

Central Ubud houses good restaurants and warungs that have been known as Ubud’s legends.

Ibu Oka’s roasted pig is a popular eating establisment  in Ubud.  The food stall has stood here for the past 20 years, a legend. The babi guling (spit-roasted pig) here is world-famous, and this humble eating place is virtually a place of pilgrimage. The roast pork is served with rice and spiced veggies. There are normal tables and chairs but you can also sit on the floor at low tables inside the bale (pavilion).

Next to Ibu Oka’s, across Kanjeng Street is Café Lotus. This cafe provides you not just delicious food and excellent beverage but also nice and pleasant surroundings. Surrounded by lotus pond and impressive Ubud palace’s family temple rise majestically in the background, a gamelan plays daily in the small raised wantilan will give a relaxing effect to you and if you happen to come there when the lotus is bloom you will surely enjoy the most soothing view in Ubud and of course, at a reasonable cost.

Ary’s Warung is also a good choice. This eatery maintains its long and impeccable reputation of providing friendly service and delicious dishes. The warung has two levels; if you choose to sit downstairs, at street level, you will be surrounded by warm finishes of teak and coconut wood, marble and natural stone, antique wall decorations and tropical greenery with a very stylish bar setting, this section usually for luncheon. Or, upstairs on the open-air terrace, a spacious room, an open tree-lined veranda, which seems to catch whatever cooling breezes are present at the time. You can lounge in oversized rattan chairs while enjoying the view of Ubud’s main street and village temples.

Another great restaurant is Casa Luna, a very large restaurant but with excellent interior design and relaxed tropical atmosphere. Apart from delicious food, Casa Luna’s  attentive staff even watch your children while you are eating.  The Balinese food and homemade cakes and desserts served in Casa Luna are favorite as well as the delicious Mediterranean dishes.

Central Ubud also offers good range of accomodation for all kinds of traveller, here are some good choices :
