The Shift, Ubud

The Shift, Ubud

just outside the heart of Ubud, Bali amidst rice paddies, artisan boutiques and
luscious hanging gardens, the newly opened Shift Hotel offers a
more relaxed vibe to Ubud’s otherwise more serious resorts and
traditional guesthouses. The spacious modern rooms surround a stone
swimming pool with palm trees and greenery and a rooftop terrace
hosts a vegan eatery and the hotel’s yoga and meditation studio.
Situated a 20-minute walk from the touristic centre of Ubud the
hotel has a ‘locals only’ feel to it. Curated events include movie
screenings, pop-up markets and live DJ deep house dance nights in
the yoga studio.

night. For £52, a suite pool room includes direct access to the
swimming pool. All rooms are air-conditioned and have comfortable
king-sized beds, en suite bathrooms with a bath or shower, organic
