Inspired by the early European settlers from the 1800s, celebrated architect Bill Bensley conceptualized Capella Ubud, Bali as a tribute to their spirit of adventure.
Entering the weird wonderful world of hotel hero Bill Bensley at Capella Ubud, a campsite pouring scorn on the classic tents-and-cold-showers combo.
In homage to the European settlers of the early 19th century, design details include wooden trunks hiding minibars, hanging animal heads, freestanding copper tubs, and canopied four-poster beds.
Nestled between Ubud’s rainforest, rice paddy fields, and the sacred Wos River, in an authentic Balinese artist village called Keliki.
This hotel has five types of rooms that stick out in the middle of the trees, namely; Terrace Tent, Rainforest, River, Keliki Valley, and The Lodge.
Bill Bensley admitted that he spent his childhood camping, so he wanted to build a tent-style inn.
He designed rooms without changing the lush forest area in Ubud which is also crossed by the Wos River. Capella Ubud, Bali offers 22 extravagant, individually styled one-bedroom tents and one tented two-bedroom lodge.
All rooms are equipped with a Jacuzzi pool which overlooks the forest and green rice fields.
Especially for The Lodge which is the most luxurious type, it is also equipped with a swimming pool.
Bill Bensley says that conceptualized this refined tented camp as a tribute to their spirit of adventure amidst untouched nature.
The tents are available in four color schemes and are styled individually with an inspirational theme that depicts the skill set of the various personnel available at a camp back in the early days of the 1800s, such as Captain, Carpenter, Naturalist, Cartographer, etc.
Five different tent categories offer distinctively enriching and unique experiences:
Five Terrace Tents located near the rice terraces with an outlook to the rainforest.
- Four Rainforest Tents offering a rainforest setting and view.
- Eight River Tents offering a tranquil Wos river experience. Secluded on a gradient, this tent is best suited to the curious and able traveler.
- Five Keliki Valley Tents offering the most dramatic, unobstructed, and elevated Keliki valley view and the largest pools.
- One two-bedroom tented Lodge. Blended into the terraced landscape, conveniently located in close proximity to The Cistern, The Lodge is best suited for a small family or a group of friends traveling together.
The one-bedroom tents and the two-bedroom tented lodge are adorned by large outdoor decks and indoor and outdoor bathrooms, featuring a hammered copper stand-alone bath, double washbasins, and an indoor and outdoor shower.
Set within a dramatic terraced landscape and nestled between lush rainforest, rice paddy fields, and the sacred Wos River, in an authentic Balinese artist village called Keliki, this refined tented camp is a hidden sanctuary from afar that truly captures the imagination of those who aspire for a unique experience.
It allows them to enjoy the essence of Ubud’s untouched natural surroundings in personalized and stylish comfort.
