The village cluster of Ubud is the ideal place to try a famed Balinese massage and soak up the ambiance of one of Asia’s top spa destinations. Acupressure, reflexology, stretching and aromatherapy star in the island's distinctively firm massage treatments. Ubud is also the vivacious center of Bali’s arts scene, home to a small treasure trove of museums and galleries. Monkey around at nearby nature reserve Monkey Forest Park, home to hundreds of mischievous long-tailed macaques. Don’t miss the valley of tomb cloisters at Gunung Kawi.

Our expert silversmiths teach students how to fashion 7 grams of silver into jewelry. We teach at all levels, from beginners to experienced.
We had a wonderful afternoon making jewellery with the team at Chez Monique. This class is more about making a piece of jewellery than learning lots of different techniques - in case anyone has expectations of formal learning. We were very happy with the session and instruction needed to make our pieces. The team were very helpful, and very patient when I decided to make quite a complex pendant! We weren’t concerned about the price (that seems to be a comment on some of the more negative posts here) - we had specific ideas of what we wanted to make and even though Wayan informed us it would cost a little more prior, we were happy as we would pay similar prices (if not more) for a shop bought piece. I was really happy with my finished piece and Wayan was so lovely to chat with. Thank you!

The teacher is unavailable this month in Ubud, but is still available at our main centre near Tanah Lot South Bali. Experienced instructor and long time resident in Bali Dave West (UK) has been teaching Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan and Health Qi Gong for over 10 years, and Sivananda Yoga for over 20 years. Since 2010 Dave has been teaching at Tai Chi Healing Arts Centre, specializing in sitting, standing and moving meditation, focusing the mind and breath to lead the Qi, relaxing and balancing the body and spirit. His teaching methods cut straight to the science with simplicity, clarity and practical skills, while maintaining fundamental principles and effectiveness.
I am a US based doctor that attended the Tai Chi introductory course. I found the course to be very enlightening both professionally and personally. I highly recommend the instructor and setting to anyone seeking personal or professional knowledge in all aspects of Tai Chi and mindful energetic type therapies.

Nyoman is a leading batik artist based in Padang Tegal Kaja in Ubud, Bali. Batik classes are available for groups and individuals. Make a simple batik (3 colours), Learn all basic techniques, Become confident about them, and Explore Tradisional styles!
We had such a great time. We called last minute for an afternoon session and were there for about three hours. It’s a family business and they’re all lovely, super patient and helpful without being overbearing. Highly recommended as a way of engaging with a traditional Indonesian cultural art form and also as an activity off the beaten path and a way to relax for an afternoon in the middle of a busy, activity-filled trip. And we left with our beautiful, handmade batik pieces!

The Bali Center for Artistic Creativity is based in Ubud, Bali. Inside a large gallery/art space we host classes, courses and memberships. Guests may stay in the two rooms available above the studio whilst learning art.Our classes are taught by resident artist Bruce Sherratt. Bruce firmly believes that "creativity is something that can be both taught and learnt" having had a long established career as an artist and art educator.For more information please view reviews and our website.
I spent 5 days here learning painting techniques with Bruce. It was truly a special experience. Not only an inspiring artist but also a master teacher, I learnt loads from him. By the end of the course I produced art I was really proud of, and did not think I could do! But much more importantly, it was loads of fun, and full of enjoyment and creative challenge. Bruce was really encouraging and brilliant at making this a great experience. I would recommend doing a course here highly.

We were picked up at the airport by Pak Deking’s son and driven to their family home for the batik class. Had an excellent time at this family run batik class. Enclaved in an oasis of calm just a short turn from the main Jalan Raya Bedulu. Pak Deking was the main man in charge: walked us through patiently the batik process from design selection, to explaining the process of batik: drawing/tracing designs with hot wax, adding paragon, wrinkling, colour selection (was a little of a confusing process as different colour bases had to be matched to obtain the right colour), adding parafin again to protect colour, boiling and washing out the dye for the final product. Tea break was homemade banana fritters with shaved coconut pieces and palm sugar-super yums! My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our day and it was the best introduction to Bali culture and hospitality! Even transport back to Seminyak was arranged for our convenience.

Seniman WORKSHOP - designed by the same team who've won consecutive awards from TripAdvisor 'Certificate of Excellence'. The WORKSHOP is a range of interactive classes covering different topics about coffee. Let our experts guide you through the world of specialist coffee from the crop to the cup.
This is separate from main cafe, across the street. Alit was an excellent teacher/mentor and really enjoyed my training. A full sized commercial machine and drank too much coffee! Hope the wedding went well Alit. For coffee nerds this is highly recommended.

Nyoman Suarsara's art class is just perfect. He is such a generous and thoughtful teacher. He is extremely patient and helps guide you throughout your art journey for the few hours you are with him, encouraging you to take breaks and just enjoy. He really takes pride to teach you his techniques and for me, I just wanted to keep going because it's so relaxing (he plays soft Balinese music as well) I really enjoyed every minute - he picks/drops you off, provides all the materials and really makes it hassle free. His studio is a short driving distance from Ubud central. Definitely book his class!
