A bustling spot for anyone missing their lunch salad bar spot. (The menu’s also filled with the usual Ubud fare: raw wraps, juices, smoothies, and how-does-this-taste-so-good-if-it’s-healthy desserts.) Not hungry? The shop has one of the best-curated selections of Balinese personal-care products and souvenir-worthy treats, from aura cleansing sprays to herbal teas.

Relaxing, but make it affordable: B. Saya in a nutshell. These traditional Balinese villas are a ride away from Ubud (they say you can walk it, but it’ll take you some time), which means a super-peaceful setting that’s not totally isolated. If you opt for one of their packages, you’ll get daily yoga classes, a chakra healing treatment, and more--with enough money leftover for souvenirs.

With no religious affiliation, no guru, and no dogma, this silent retreat is for those who need a break--but aren't looking to follow a long list of rules (or aren't ready to totally give up creature comforts). You can book your own private room or villa (there are also more affordable dorm bed options), laze in a library that looks like the inspiration for the latest Anthropologie catalog, and snack all. day. long. on food grown organically (most of it on their grounds, which are zero-waste) and prepared by Zest's head chef. It's not luxe--the wake-up gong goes off at 5:30 a.m. and you're expected to make your own bed and bus your own dishes--but it's the reset that just about everyone making the trek to Bali probably needs.

Arguably the life center of wellness in Amed, this multi-story bamboo structure does it all: there’s a yoga studio, dive practice pool, cafe, and restaurant with jaw-dropping views of the sunset behind Mount Agung. (You’ll want to reserve ahead to snag a prime table, FYI.) There’s a lot on the menu that might catch your eye (hello, moringa and corn soup), but make sure you leave room for the dessert—the raw/vegan beetroot chocolate cake was one of the best we had on the island (which is saying something).

And yes, the pool is in the middle of a rice paddy field.

Also: There’s a wall filled with raw, vegan snacks and desserts that's veeery tempting.

Welcome to the Disney World of yoga, Yoga Barn is less of a studio and more of a compound--with buildings housing everything from a plant-based cafe to an Ayurvedic spa to, you know, space to downward dog in. It's buzzing with expat yogis and tourists coming to pay their respects, so don't expect a lot of one-on-one time in class (and book any treatments at least a week ahead).

The most Ubudian of Ubud restaurants: dreamy views, serene gardens, beautiful people, and a ridiculously amazing plant-powered menu. Case in point: On the day we went, there was a special bowl with not one, not two, but three types of kraut. Give yourself extra time to just...chill. (And yes, there’s wifi if you want to make it your portable office.)
