Wish You Were Here: Kupu Kupu Barong Villas, Bali

Ubud is calling.

Look out – we just found paradise.

Perched over the jungle-covered hillside of Ubud sits the Kupu Kupu Barong Villas, a relaxing retreat named for the exotic butterflies that flit through the surrounding valleys.

Set in a magical forest on the slopes of Mount Agung, Kupu Kupu is the perfect place to get away from it all. Stay in one of the 39 private and luxurious pool villas that make up the property, each epitomising Balinese architecture and elegance.

Featuring thatched roofs, redwood walls and teak and coconut shell paneling, each villa marries local art, culture and pampering in one spot.

Guests can eat dinner by candlelight in Kupu Kupu’s signature branched pagoda that juts out over the shimmering rice terraces.

And with views like that, you’ll never want to leave.

If you’re looking to kick back, the in-house Mango Tree Spa will help you escape with hand-performed treatments using traditional massage techniques, essential oils and natural ingredients, all overlooking that killer jungle view.

This can’t be real.
