Located in the heart of Bali, Ubud has long been a retreat for those in search of peace of mind and artistic inspiration. The bustling town centre has a wonderful variety of art studios and galleries, and a seemingly endless calendar of events.
Ubud Hanging Gardens has created a series of Balinese Masterclasses enabling guests to become fully absorbed in their local environment and Balinese culture.
From cooking lessons using local seasonal ingredients with the hotel’s head chef and painting classes with a traditional Balinese artist to tuition in Tibetan wellness, Yoga and Chakra Meditation, there is something to suit every taste.
All classes are suitable for beginners through to advanced practitioners.
Ubud Hanging Gardens also welcomes families to stay at the resort and has organized some courses to keep the children entertained and their imaginations stimulated:
- Kite crafting is one course available to children staying at the hotel. Children can learn to design and make their own kites with a few strips of shaved bamboo, a piece of paper and a length of string.
- Dance classes are another popular choice for the young guests at the hotel. Children from the nearby Susut village are taught the Legong dance as part of the class. Guests are encouraged to let their children join in, or they can simply sit at the café and enjoy the show.
Ubud Hanging Gardens is the ideal hotel for the whole family to stay in luxury, relax, learn new skills and immerse themselves in the Balinese culture.
