Explorations of Ubud

Experiences in Bali| Anantara Ubud Bali Resort

Past and present.

Explore Ubud’s place as one the world’s most important cultural centres, and how it has developed over time. We begin at the royal palace, a cultural repository for the arts for centuries, and a fine example of traditional Balinese architecture. Just opposite lies the water palace, or Puri Saraswati, dedicated to the goddess of the arts, and an important gathering place for religious ceremonies and festivals.


The Artisans

Like many of the island’s landmarks, Puri Saraswati was designed by I Gusti Nyoman Lempad, Bali’s most famous architect and sculptor. His works, along with expats Walter Spies and Antonio Blanco who called the island home, can be admired at the many living museums that dot the outskirts of Ubud.
