Independent by nature
As with all Tribute Portfolio properties, Sthala, A Tribute Portfolio Hotel, Ubud Bali features a selection of #independentmoments: distinct design touches and experiences found at each Tribute Portfolio hotel and resort that illustrate what guests love about “staying independent.” The #independentmoments for Sthala Ubud Bali include:
- Bebek Semudera – A twist on one of the Ubud region’s signature dishes, Bebek Semudera is more than just a meal, it’s an experience. Prepared by Chef Wayan Semudera, this tender, juicy duck is cooked ever-so slowly and is best enjoyed at the Sungai Restaurant while taking in the stunning scenery.
- Dragon Wood Carving – A traditional Indonesian symbol of power, strength and good fortune, the dragon wood carvings at the hotel were created by local Balinese craftsmen.
- Signature Wos Breeze Cocktail – Beat the Bali heat with the Woss Breeze, which blends local ingredients including rum, lime, red chilli, lemongrass, ginger, and fresh mint into a refreshing libation.
- Wos River – Embrace the true essence of the jungle with the perfect view of the Wos River from the Panorama Pool and Sundeck Lounge.
- Stone Carvings – Situated at the epicentre of culture in Ubud, the hotel features three stone carvings of Trimurti – the trinity of supreme divinity in Hinduism which represents the three manifestations of God (Brahma, Wisnu, and Siwa).
- Tegel Tiles – With diverse colours and patterns, the classic vintage and retro tiles in the Naga Rooftop Bar & Lounge are the perfect design surprise when looking down.
- Bamboo Woven Chair – Take a moment to sit back and enjoy the serenity of the surroundings; located in the Naga Rooftop Bar & Lounge, the bamboo woven chair is a wonderful location to unwind.
