Where to stay near Ubud Monkey Forest

Ubud Monkey Forest Hotels

With the feel of an Indiana Jones film set and the thrill of getting up close and personal with cheeky wildlife, Ubud Monkey Forest is a fascinating place where you can explore 3 temples and feed mischievous Balinese macaques. Part nature reserve, part worship centre, Ubud Monkey Forest, also known as Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, is home to over 600 curious macaques, some of whom like nothing better than to scamper off with treasures they found in your pockets, or clamber up your limbs to sit jauntily atop your head for a photo.

Things to see

Ubud Monkey Forest is a must visit when in town, and everyone from backpackers and honeymooners to those travelling with the kids will enjoy watching the cheeky monekies and touring the beautiful temples. Be sure to keep your purse or backpack zipped up, though, so these mischievous creatures will delight you instead of sending you chasing after them for that stolen camera lens or credit card. When you are done feeding bananas to the Balinese macaques, embrace the peacefulness of the stunning Elephant Cave, a dramatic and beautiful 11th century cave that you enter through the carved mouth of a demon. Explore the gardens and meditate by a serene pool set under a giant ficus tree.

For an afternoon pick me up, head out to the Satri Coffee Plantation for fantastic terrace views and a delightfully informative coffee and tea tasting. If you're looking for a great place to pick up souvenirs, look no further than Ubud Traditional Art Market. Amongst the stalls you'll find wooden carvings, fragrant spices, and colorful kites, so embrace your inner bargain hunter and haggle your way to some unique treasures.
