Nyuh Kuning Village, south of Ubud
Nyuh Kuning is the village on the south side of the Sacred Monkey Forest, with a bike/walking path leading to Ubud, 20 minutes on foot, 5 minutes by bike.
It has a great selection of local and international restaurants/cafes including Italian, Japanese, vegetarian & western style cafes as well as numerous Balinese warongs serving tasty local cuisine. Two minutes walk away is a great coffee shop run by a Balinese coffee farmer serving international quality coffee. It offers a hub for Nyuh Kuning socialising. There is also a venue with regular local & international live music and a weekly open mic night attracting an eclectic & often ecstatic crowd!
During the season there are football games on the field in the centre of the village and gentle gamelan music can often be heard from the temple.
Nyuh Kuning has a yoga studio run by Pak Ketut offering his own style of yoga based on Kundalini, Iyengar, Ashtanga and Hatha Yoga. The classes are conducted in a mixture of Indonesia & English. While many of the practitioners are local, visitors to the island are welcome. Ketut is an internationally recognised yoga & meditation instructor & his giggle is infectious! "Ubud Yoga Centre' & 'Movement Matters Pilates' are also located in the village and the famous Yoga Barn is a 20 minute walk away.
The Sacred Monkey Forest is located at the end of the street. It is a magical place to meet the monkeys and also to wonder in the cool climate maintained by the magnificent trees. Ubud centre is found on the other side of the forest.
