My villa room at COMO Uma
It has almost been a week. I’ve been in this magnificent city of Bali where magical moments happen. I haven’t posting anything on my travels just yet on my blog so why not now? Some of my social media buddies have been tied up with their recent visit to Temburong while I cover the city of Ubud in Bali.
For some who are not familiar, Ubud is more like a nature attraction for tourists in Bali. It’s not as busy as Kuta or Seminyak but I could say it’s gradually getting busy. Well, now that more tourists are heading to Ubud, that explains the increasing traffic congestion. So it’s not something that I look forward to as it took us a while to reach certain destinations within Ubud.
Last year around this time, I was in Bali for a toastmasters convention and it was such an untimely manner as there was a volcanic eruption that caused to disrupt the flights in and out of Bali. Hence I was stuck for sometime in Bali and chilling in Bali instead.
Yay!! Now I’m back again and this time we are staying at Uma by Como, Ubud. Two years ago, I was stayed at Maya Ubud and if I were to compare with Uma by Como, I prefer the service here at Uma by Como. The only set back is that the villas doesn’t have a private pool. Boohoo. The food here is great and not as expensive surprisingly. The villa rooms, however, are a different story. Rooms starts around BND 390 on booking.com but we managed to get a better deal since we have a huge group.
Now would I recommend you to stay over at COMO Uma? Definitely for the service and the rooms. Just make sure that you save yourself some $$$. Mind you the COMO Uma is slightly far from Seminyak and Kuta. This is ideal place for couples by the way and just a good getaway from the distractions and the busyness off of Bali. Oh, they also provide shuttle to Ubud Centre and also to the money changer.
The best thing about luxurious hotels in Bali are the beds. I have such great sleep for the past week or so. I could sleep all day 😀
The night version. The nets are quite useful especially with mosquitoes here and there. Not to worry as they provide many repellents around the room. I only got bitten once in my week stay.
The bath tub which I rarely used but shows how spacious the bathroom is.
This is just outside my room. A place to chill and also outdoor shower. Haven’t really used it but I do wish there is a pool
I love the touch of green around the villas.
They have many koi fish here at the COMO and they provide fish food if you feel like feeding them

This is the strong reason I love Ubud… The greenery 😀
