Best Western Hotels & Resorts brings a classy holiday experience to Bali with its recently opened Best Western Premier Agung Resort Ubud.

Nestled within a lush forest, yet close to the main attractions of Ubud, the classical charm and beauty of the “Island of the Gods” is captured in the resort’s interior and exterior design. The open plan features many traditional touches like wooden floors and Balinese furnishings. These are complemented by an array of modern amenities and facilities, including complimentary Wi-Fi, ensuring that guests have the best of both worlds.

This intimate, low-rise resort accommodates 75 spacious guestrooms with comfortable beds, working space, state-of-the-art technology and a private balcony or terrace. Guests can cool off in the outdoor swimming pool, soak up the tropical sun on the large pool terrace, work out in the well-equipped fitness centre, or enjoy soothing treatments at the on-site spa, which harnesses organic herbs and ingredients produced by an onsite farm.

There is also a spacious restaurant serving exquisite local and international cuisine in a semi-al fresco setting, plus a casual coffee shop, which is the perfect place to unwind and connect with friends and family.

“Ubud is a truly breath-taking destination, packed with culture, natural beauty and traditional Balinese charm,” said Olivier Berrivin, Best Western Hotels & Resorts’ managing director of international operations Asia. “We are delighted to enter this highly sought-after market with a resort that reflects the charm and ambience of Ubud.”

“The classical design and bright, spacious layout take full advantage of the island’s natural gifts, allowing guests to relax amidst verdant jungles, shady palm trees and fresh mountain air. This enables Best Western Premier Agung Resort Ubud to deliver an authentic Balinese experience; perfect for guests seeking to get in touch with the soul of the island.”

Perched in the island’s central uplands, Ubud is home to a wealth of activities and experiences. Guests are able to visit local attractions such as the Ubud Monkey Forest, the ancient Goa Gajah, or “Elephant Cave”, and the beautiful Tegallalang Rice Terraces. During the day, guests can simply browse the town’s many markets, craft shops and galleries.
