Capella Ubud


A colonial-style glamping retreat in Ubud

Minimalism might be in, but superstar interior designer Bill Bensley has no qualms about turning up the dΓ©cor to maximum at Capella Ubud, Bali. Sloped on a jungle ravine inΒ Bali’s cultural and creative heart, the luxury tented lodge is a wacky window into a bygone era. Bensley is the mastermind behind this contemporary early settlers’ camp, which features 23 Dutch-colonial-inspired tents decorated to a theme. Discover traditional Balinese baking utensils adorning the Baker’s Tent and film paraphernalia in the Photographer’s lodgings.

There’s a real sense of playfulness about this property, from the 30-meter-long above-ground rainforest pool to the branded sidecar at the entrance. But it also feels exceptionally private. Each tent has a large terrace with daybed, private saltwater plunge pool and indoor and outdoor showers for nature bathing. And with a rotation of jungle-inspired guided group yoga and fitness classes on offer, there’s plenty to do outside of your tent as well.
