Private car transfers are easily arranged by the hotel upon request. You will find plenty of non-metered taxis in Ubud, for which we recommend negotiating the fare in advance. Rental cars and motorbikes are other popular means of local transportation.


Bali’s climate is driest between June and September. Ubud’s higher elevation helps take the edge off Bali’s equatorial swelter when the isle is at its warmest.


Balinese will not expect tips, though at restaurants around the island a 5-10% gesture will certainly be appreciated. At The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, we automatically include a service charge, which will be distributed evenly amongst staff so it’s not necessary to tip directly unless you wish to recognise individual staff members.
