Sthala Ubud sets the scene for a great wedding in Bali.
With its sublime natural settings and exotic allure, it’s no secret that Bali is a prime destination for weddings. And while there are many places you can tie the knot here, you would be hard pressed to find a more romantic spot than Sthala Ubud Bali, a Tribute Portfolio Hotel nestled in the peaceful village of Lodtunduh. Newly opened earlier this year, this picturesque resort is already creating a buzz among the soon-to-be-wed for its range of enchanting venues and comprehensive packages.
Perched on a hilltop overlooking a lush river valley, Sthala Ubud Bali is a captivating hideaway far removed from Bali’s bustling streets and tourist stomping grounds. On site are gorgeous manicured gardens, light-filled suites boasting traditional Balinese elements and views of the Wos River, and elegant dining venues that seamlessly blend into the natural surroundings. Step outside the grounds and you find yourself in a warm and welcoming traditional Balinese village.
What sets Sthala Ubud apart from other resorts in Bali is that they have not one, but four idyllic wedding venues, each offering a different backdrop and setting for couples to exchange their vows. Whether you’re planning an intimate ceremony with just a few loved ones or a grand gala with extended family and friends, there is a setting to suit all types of celebration.
For an indoor wedding, albeit with amazing views, the Sthala Chapel is located on the 8th-floor rooftop and offers sweeping vistas of Lodtunduh’s tropical landscape through floor-to-ceiling windows. Not your typical glass-enclosed chapel with all-white furnishings, this chapel embraces local culture and nature with teak wood flooring, an alang-alang thatched roof and a lovely outdoor area that is perfect for a cocktail reception after the ceremony.
Also offering spectacular views of the tropical landscape as well as Sthala Ubud’s impressive infinity pool, Naga Rooftop Bar & Lounge is another divine setting for a destination wedding. Couples can exchange vows in a sacred ceremony on the open-air deck and celebrate afterwards with a joyous party featuring cocktails, canapes and surreal views of the sunset over the river valley.
With a breathtaking jungle backdrop that includes views of the Wos River, Abing Terraces offers an unforgettable outdoor wedding setting. The expansive lawn can accommodate up to 250 people for the wedding ceremony and a grand garden party, making this a great option for couples planning a large soirée. Depending on the package you opt for, special touches could include a fresh flower arch, gorgeous Tiffany chairs, and welcome drinks for guests.
If it’s a more intimate experience you’re seeking, the Wos Riverside Deck is a serene setting immersed in nature. The wooden deck hovers over the river and is surrounded by greenery on all sides. The deck also offers views of a Balinese temple and the ‘Bridge of Love’ that spans the river. Couples can say their vows over the sound of water gently rushing in the background, and then follow the ceremony with drinks and light bites under the stars.
No matter which wedding venue you choose, Sthala Ubud makes planning a breeze with their expert event planning assistance and extensive packages that cover all bases. Each wedding package includes use of a wedding preparation area, exclusive use of your chosen wedding venue, fresh floral decorations, a bridal bouquet and groom’s boutonnière, music for the ceremony, scented cold towels for guests, a wedding toast for the couple, and a commemorative ceremonial certificate.
Upgraded packages also include special touches like welcome drinks for up to 30 people, glasses of bubbles for the bride and groom, and special wedding gifts and giveaways. If you really want to go all out, opt for the Exquisite package, which includes a beautiful pergola for the ceremony, a one-night stay in a Deluxe River View Room with buffet breakfast for two, and a romantic three-course dinner at the Riverside Gazebo.
