Penestanan is my favorite area in Ubud. Its a place for healing and meditation, meeting interesting and creative people, many expats live in Penestenan; walk up the steps to paradise.
Bambu spirit, the meeting place of Ubud’s artists and locals alike, offers a delicious sunday buffet. The owner prepares delicious salads with fresh vegetable. Healthy and delicious is what this magical place stands for. Plus the host is warm and welcoming. ❤️
Just up the road is sun flower café. Enjoy a delicious chai with the best spring roll I’ve ever had. Nothing fried, all veggies inside a rice roll. Excellent!
If you eant to stay in this area:
Made’s warung & guesthouse is a cheap and good local guesthouse and restaurant.
