Ubud, Bali: Folk Pool and Gardens
Hidden amidst the chaos of Ubud’s busiest road, it might be easy to miss the Eden-esque oasis. Make sure you don’t. It is one of Ubud’s best hangouts, a perfect spot to laze an entire day away by the pool while sipping on mojitos. It’s not uncommon to accidentally stay here way longer than expected, which is fine because come nighttime, the feel of the place transforms into an exotic paradise. A few nights a month, they also offer free showings of popular movies, staking their claim as Ubud’s first open-air cinema.
The decor of the place is beautiful and serene, with the whole place seemingly draped in greenery. Despite being on Ubud’s heavily-trafficked Monkey Forest Road, it is tucked away just enough to keep things peaceful and quiet. That’s perfect for when you just want to hang out in the pool or on one of the covered beds by the pool. There’s no bad time to come to Folk.
Early in the morning? Come here and get the place to yourself for a little bit, swimming some laps in the pool and taking in the lush scenery before the Balinese heat forces you back into the pool again. Make your way here in the afternoon for their unique Balinese take on afternoon tea, accompanied with a variety of Balinese delicacies. If you’re looking for something a bit heavier, Folk also has a fully-stocked kitchen, complete with Indonesian classics to pizzas, and yes, even smoothie bowls. You’re sure to find something you’ll like. If not, you can even book a cooking class with their chef and do it yourself.
