Celebrating Extraordinary Design & Architecture

September 25, 2019 Accolades No Comments Email Email

Capella Ubud, Bali is pleased to announce it has been honoured to receive the prestigious PURE Life Experiences 2019 Award in the “Mindful Design” category, recently presented at the PURE Life Experiences event held in Marrakech. The event is a celebration of the travel community and its power to change worlds. It’s about recognizing those who tirelessly push boundaries; combine rugged experiences with high-end sophistication; and use travel to change mindsets, empower communities and protect the planet.

The Mindful Design Award is given in recognition of outstanding examples of high-end design that contribute to the emotional experience of the travelers, using exquisite aesthetics and creative ingenuity to offer a new perspective and showcase the richness of its locality.

The refined camp was also crowned as Best Hotel Exterior 2019 by Prix Versailles, the world architecture and design awards, announced at the Unesco Headquarters in Paris recently. This event is tantamount to the Olympic Games of Architecture and Design which encourages the idea of recognizing excellence in a diversity of styles.

Mark Swinton, General Manager of Capella Ubud, Bali, commented, “It is an honour to be recognised amongst such incredible properties with thoughtful architecture at these world calibre events; PURE Life Experiences and Prix Versailles. We are privileged to be located within such a beautiful old growth forest surrounded by rich Balinese heritage. From the initial conception until today, preservation and sustainability of such precious attributes have always been a driving force towards our vision. The design of Capella Ubud is reflective of this approach.

Our owner, who is an avid art collector and nature lover, believes in giving back rather than merely taking, and was adamant that Mother Nature remained intact while at the same time showcasing the expansive heritage of Indonesia. The architect, Bill Bensley was chosen for his deep-rooted passion towards natural conservation and commitment towards creating a luxury experience unlike anything available within Indonesia. These incredible accolades will further inspire our team towards our vision as a sustainable refined tented camp.” he added.

Capella Ubud, Bali is nestled between Ubud’s rainforest, rice paddy fields and the sacred Wos River. This intimate retreat brings to life the wonders and myths of Bali in the 1800s. Each of the 22 unique tents as well as an extravagant two-bedroom lodge are crafted with an individual inspirational theme, allowing guests to enjoy the essence of Bali’s untouched natural surroundings in personalized comfort.
