“Happiness is a butterfly, which when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you.”  Nathaniel Hawthorne

Imagine a timeless place, halfway to heaven, set in a magical forest high above a river born on the slopes of sacred Mt Agung, and named for the exotic butterflies that flit through mist-wreathed valleys and flutter above shimmering rice terraces.

In such a place the finest spa pampering is proffered in the boughs of a Mango Tree with the perfect blend of French savoir faire and Balinese soul, along with the finest essential oils and infusions of L’Occitane of Provence. Lovestruck couples take breakfast in a bamboo birdcage, serenaded by birdsong, and dine à deux as dusk descends, savouring French haute cuisine as they float on a private reflecting pool, far above the valley.

 Welcome to Kupu Kupu Barong Villas and Tree Spa by L’Occitane.

Arrayed over three hectares of lush tropical greenery, the first resort to bring luxury to Ubud’s serenity and spirituality continues to deliver the quintessential Ayung Valley experience.

Our 39 private and luxurious pool villas, served by private butlers, epitomise the beauty and elegance of Balinese architecture; thatched roofs, redwood walls, teak and coconut shell paneling and sumptuous local fabrics weave a spell of exotic refinement. Engage with art, connect with culture, pursue pampering, seek enlightenment or simply listen to the rice grow.

Experience the essence of Ubud at Kupu Kupu Barong. Live the legend for yourself.

Guest Testimonials

"Breathtaking views and luxury living". Older guests beware, the terrain is rugged, steep and quite old. Wonderful staff who could not be more accommodating and helpful. Very worthwhile the effort it takes to climb the hill to breakfast, and to negotiate 3 levels to find ones bed.

"Ahhhh the serenity!!". This place is just perfect! The villas are gorgeous and look out over the river. The only noises you can hear is the birds and other wildlife around you. Staff cannot do enough for you. They have a shuttle bus that runs into the main area of Ubud, every hour. Perfect place to relax and unwind!

"Gorgeous". Stunning room with a beautiful view. Staff went the extra mile. It was amazing to come home to a lovely turned down bed as well! We also loved our private pool, as well as being able to have breakfast on our patio.

"Service to die for". Most amazing hotel within central ubud. Service was the best I’d ever received staff couldn’t do enough for you. Private butler makes things so much easier. Special thanks to Segar for taking care of us.

"Wonderful holiday at a magical resort". Everything at Kupu Kupu Barong villas was first class, the river front pool rooms were magical, from the four poster beds and sunken bath to the plunge pool and complimentary min bars. Shuttles to Ubud we’re always on time, breakfast buffet was great, and the butler was ever present and always helpful.
