Wellness experiences and retreats are dime to a dozen in Ubud, but some of them truly stand out. Desa Visesa is one such resort. It seems unfair to call it a hotel because it is more than just that - rooms are luxurious and well-appointed and they come with private pools. You could kickstart your day with a spot of yoga and their expansive breakfast buffet but we suggest opting for their floating breakfast, which can be delivered to your villa each morning.
But that isn't what makes Desa Visesa special. The landscape is rooted in Balinese culture and tradition and the venture is invested in promoting sustainable farming practices in the area. Thanks to this, the hotel's guests have a chance to walk around paddy fields, interact with Balinese farmers, picnic by paddy fields, ride ponies, and enrol themselves for spa rituals that use superfoods and ancient Balinese practices to leave guests completely rejuvenated. Ideal for a honeymoon or romantic getaway in the lap of nature.
