The Living Room
The Officer’s Tent is the social heart of our camp, a charming space filled with Bensley’s eccentric touches and full of antiques and books from a bygone era. It is where you will meet our Capella Culturist who will plan a day of adventure, taking you to explore the villages next door to try your hand at Keliki wood-carving, while enjoying sounds of gamelan hand-played by Balinese musicians.
As dusk falls, the tent turns into a soiree with fellow campers and the high-spirited team of Capella Ubud gathering around Mad’s Spirit Box to shake up an evening bevvy or two. Connect and foster friendship over light-hearted conversations, before entering into a fun game of pool or chess.
Our Capella Culturist dedicate their time to inspire you to carve out moments of adventure during your time in the jungle. They embody the Balinese way of life, feeding your unique appetite for life by inviting you to become part of the tribe. Join the local families of Keliki Village and help them prepare the magnificent penjor - ornate bamboo poles - for their temple festival, Piodalan, before practising gamelan with the village children. To help in your pursuit to build authentic bonds with the locales, they will teach you Balinese Sanskrit and customs.
Like a moth to a flame, you will gravitate towards our camp guru, Pak Budi, as he shares insights on Bali folklore and legends by the glow of our bonfire. Born with the gift to heal since young, Pak Budi is also our resident healer and is a certified Chakra Healing Master.
Your Capella Culturist will provide a full itinerary of activities and events hosted in the Living Room during your stay.

We are privileged to be entrusted with such exceptional destinations and finding ways to reflect and respect the local culture are vital to our work. As custodian of the community, we are dedicated in the enrichment of our surroundings and the lives of our community, acting as mentors to youths and participating in school initiatives to empower them to create a better tomorrow.
English for a brighter future
The language of tourism in Bali is dependent on English. At Capella Ubud, we aspire to enrich the lives of our youth by providing them with a three-month English program for Elementary School students in Keliki Village. Empowering them to take charge of their education by collecting plastic waste in the neighbourhood in exchange for a spot in the classroom, we also help nurture their respect and love for the environment.
In our bid to encourage collaboration within the community, we work together with Krang Taruna, the youth organisation of the village, to assist with class scheduling and waste recycling processes. The proceeds from recycling the discarded plastic bottles are also reintroduced back into the community through further educational initiatives.
