These Bali Jungle Clubs Let Tourists Access Five-Star Facilities Just For The Day

Share The Article

Bali’s coastal resorts of Canggu, Seminyak, and Uluwatu are becoming more and more famous for their incredible range of beach clubs.

In Canggu, for example, tourists can spend a day hanging out at Finns Beach Club or even the metropolis of Atlas Beach Fest.

Cretya Jungle Day Club in Bali

Down in Uluwatu, visitors are split for choice, spend a day indulging in the decadence of Savaya or swimming in the crystal blue waters at Sundays Beach Club.

Did you know there are day clubs in Ubud? The cultural capital of the island may not boast a coastline, but jungle views are aplenty. If you want beach club vibes with a jungle vista, you better get yourself to Ubud!

Soulshine Bali is heavenly.

Striking the perfect balance between luxury and comfort, indulgence and accessibility, Soulshine Bali is an absolute must-visit while you’re in Ubud.

The joy of a day club is that it offers you access to all the facilities of a five-star hotel for the minimum food and beverage spend of IDR 150,000. 

Soulshine Bali was founded by American music sensation Micheal Franti and serial entrepreneur Sara Agah Franti.

Together the couple has created a space that nurtures creativity and prioritizes health and wellness.

Soulshine regularly hosts Soul Rocker Retreats that see groups of guests from around the world come together for a life-changing week of yoga, music, community, and cultural exchange in the sacred lands of Bali.

For day visitors, Soulshine is an ultra-cool place to hang out, soak up the sun, chill in the pool, and indulge in cocktails, mocktails, and an impressive menu of healthy, hearty food.

Soulshine is located just outside of central Ubud and overlooks its own rice terrace, a stretch of the fast-flowing river, and picturesque palm trees.

There are not one but two swimming pools, day beds, sun loungers, and private cabanas to choose from, and the main pool even has a water slide. Yes…adults are encouraged to be free and play here!

Day clubs are proving to be increasingly popular in and around Ubud. The most famous day club, also referred to as a jungle club, in the Ubud area is Cretya.

Overlooking the vast rice terraces, Cretya has gone viral on social media for obvious reasons. The rice terraces in the distance are mirrored by the terraced infinity swimming pools of the jungle retreat.

The upscale restaurant dishes up an exquisite menu that will feed your soul during a strenuous day of relaxing in paradise. 

Since Cretya Ubud is so famous, making a reservation is highly, highly recommended.

Especially in high season, if you’ve got your heart set on the best seat in the club, you should definitely book ahead.

Reservations for the poolside area can only be made by calling the venue directly, and all the information you need can be found on their website, with up-to-the-minute information on their social media feeds. 

Heading back into central Ubud, Folk Gardens and Pool is not to be overlooked.

Tucked away in the heart of busy and bustling Ubud is a poolside paradise and day club. Folk Pool and Gardens have hidden away just off Jalan Monkey Forest, set back from popular party spot The Blue Door.

Folk Pool and Garden is proudly Ubud’s first downtown restaurant and swim-up bar, offering a spacious garden with plenty of lounge space to hang out and soak up the sun.


The poolside is an ideal spot to spend a day scheming your next adventure or resting and recovering from the last.

Folk Garden and Pool is a must-visit if you’re staying in central Ubud.

As the club is located in Jalan Monkey Forest, it couldn’t be more centrally located if it tried. It is an easy walking distance from Ubud’s most popular hotels like Ubud Village Hotel and Arya.

Jungle Clubs?

Non-retarded people go to the jungle for the nature and wildlife. Not for loud music and hell.

I used to take visitors for lunch to a place in Munduk. We didnt ever want to use the pool, only to have lunch. Now it is 500,000rp each for lunch and to enter the resort. They have lost me and i will never suggest to my friends to go see the 3rd best infinity pool in the world and have lunch. Instead, go to Kejapa Coffee and for 20,000rp have plantation coffee and pisang goreng.

Quote "Day clubs are proving to be increasingly popular in and around Ubud"

But not so popular with their neighbours: Google review of "Soulshine" Ubud from a week ago "We are your neighbors. Every day we have to listen to your incredibly loud music. ... now you have VERY LOUD parties from Monday to Sunday - EVERY DAY!!!! And it's not the first week of this happening!

Foreigners may rent or invest in a secluded villa near rivers, jungle and rice fields and before they know it a "club" open up nearby and everything is ruined. The Balinese authorities are just ignoring people having invested their savings here. Gov. with Koster is fed up with the Russians but the big problem is lack of "peace and quiet" -- all drowning in endless noise from clubs and motorbikes!

@Exp, Absolutely correct, so far nobody has encroached on my property, but then again, it would be hard to do so on 8 hectares of farm country.

Well, I find truely shameful to sit poolside with cocktail overlooking the ricepaddies and see the local people hard working in the basking sun...
