Ubud—situated at the very heart of the magical island of Bali—is the best known village in the best known island in the world. With origins dating back perhaps over more than a millennium, its more recent renown is as an art colony. Western artists, musicians, actors and other members of the glitterati were attracted to its many charms and began to congregate in Ubud beginning in the early twentieth century. Its evolution into the major tourist attraction that it is today is a direct result.
If Ubud is the heart of Bali, Murni is in many respects the heart of Ubud. A pioneer in the art and hospitality industries, she opened her famed restaurant, Murni‘s Warung, in 1974, even before electricity reached the village. Villas and houses for tourist accommodation, an art gallery and a spa followed… if anyone has the inside track on this amazing village, it’s Murni.
Now for the first time, Murni shares her deep knowledge of the surrounds for your guidance—from temples and palaces, ceremonies, music and dance, to art galleries, textile shops, spas and classes in whatever you want to learn and much, much more—this guide has it all.
