The magnificent 89-meter infinity heated infinity pool at Padma Ubud is perhaps one of the most famous swimming pools anywhere in the world.

The curvaceous luxury lagoon is the perfect place for hotel guests to work on their tan and meet like-minded, luxury-loving explorers.

It is not only the infinity pool itself that is both stunning and memorable but the walkway to the water too.

Accessible by a glass-covered pathway, the Padma pools are surely one of the highlights of the hotel’s experience. 

For those in the know, Parma’s featuring in TripAdvisor’s top ten hotels in the world in 2023 comes as no surprise. Padma Ubud has been showered with accolades and awards for years.

Consistently featured in traveler’s choice awards, the hotel is very comfortable sitting in the upper echelons of the hospitality world. 

Padma Ubud has a sister hotel in Legian which is as loved by ocean lovers as the jungle resort is adored by nature lovers.

Many people choose to stay at both hotels during their vacation in Bali, taking time to explore the southern beaches with Padma Resort Legian before venturing northward for a jungle retreat at Padma Ubud.
