Where is the Sari Organik Walk
The Sari Organik Walk is located only a 10 min walk away from the Ubud Art Market, making it an easy walk to add to your Ubud itinerary! Once you reach the starting point of the walk it is a rough half an hour walk up the trail along rice terraces, shops and many restaurants where you can take a break while overlooking the beautiful rice fields. Fun fact: the Sari Organik Walk was named after one of the most popular restaurants on the trail named Sari Organik! The Sari Organik Walk runs almost parallel to one of the most beautiful and popular walks in Ubud, the Campuhan Ridge Walk, but compared to the Campuhan Ridge Walk the Sari Organik Walk is mostly flat, making it a slightly easier walk. To get a better idea of where the walk is exactly located check out the map below.
The Sari Organik Walk
Once you have reached the starting point of the trail you will immediately notice that the business and the noise of the traffic of Ubud will start to disappear and you will be welcomed by a lush oasis of green. While many people come here for a walk be aware that the trail is still accessible by scooter and motorbike, so be sure to give way to those on the trail. Once you head further up the trail you will notice that there are less and less guesthouses, shops and restaurants and that you will be surrounded by the most beautiful rice and farm fields.
While there are many restaurants on the walk we decided to go to Sari Organik, the walk was named after this restaurant after all. We sat down and enjoyed the beautiful view over the rice fields while having some breakfast. But if we’re honest we do have to say that we personally weren’t a big fan of the food at Sari Organik, it was a bit too blend for our taste. However, we did really enjoyed our drinks here, and in the end we came here to enjoy the tranquility of the rice fields and the beautiful views.
The walk though doesn’t end there and in our opinion the best part is still to come! The walk continues further and you will notice less and less people on the trail, and if you are lucky, you might even enjoy the beautiful and calm views all to yourself. Once we passed Sari Organik the trail seemed to get more narrow, the guesthouses and restaurants less frequent and the views got even better. In the end we spent a total of almost two hours on the walk, including an hour at the restaurant, a perfect way to start our morning, and perhaps yours too.
Where to stay in Ubud
As Ubud is one of Bali’s most popular destinations you will have absolutely no trouble finding a place to stay in Ubud. Luxury villas and resorts, hostels and guesthouses, there is something for everyone in Ubud. As the centre of Ubud can be quite hectic we personally prefer to stay out of the city centre, a great option if you are planning on renting a motorbike in Ubud. The last time we were in Ubud we stayed at Kapu Kapu Ubud, a short ten minute ride from the city centre but in the most quiet and green neighbourhood. We absolutely loved our stay here and consider it a great option for those who are traveling on a budget. However, if you prefer to stay a bit more central, perhaps even near the Sari Organik Walk, check out the map below to find the perfect accommodation for you!
