Another birthday, another celebration – but where to? Bali is calling your name. Celebrate yourself at the Balinese resort Wapa di Ume and overlook the rainforest and rice fields as you ring in another year. Travel alone, with a companion or bring your closest family and friends to get in touch with nature the luxurious way. Can you see it now? Wading in your private pool overlooking the Balinese rainforest. Sounds like a birthday celebration dream come true.
Experience Bali the luxurious way with a villa and private infinity pool. Book the single bed villa if you are traveling solo or with a partner or take over their two-story family villa and bring the whole crew. With mountain, rainforest and rice field views, you’ll wake up to breathtaking scenery.
Wapa di Ume has two restaurants on site. Mr. Wayan celebrates Balinese cuisine which is rich in spices, fresh vegetables, meat and fish. With meals that are traditionally prepared as offerings for the Gods, Mr. Wayan will place you in the pulse of Balinese food. Their second restaurant, Wapa’s Restaurant, is a fusion of East meets West. This fusion restaurant gazes over an infinity pool with views of the rain forest.
