MUST-DO ACTIVITIES IN BALI: ALAS HARUM & CRETYA UBUD
IS IT WORTH IT to visit The alas harum & cretya UBUD?
If you’ve never heard of Alas Harum & Cretya it’s because this extraordinary luxurious destination opened in November 2021. If you visit the Tegallalang Rice Fields you will see some resemblance, as Alas Harus has been inspired by the Tegallalang rice terraces. If you are looking for a place to escape the city’s agitated life and just go and relax in an oasis of natural tranquillity, bespoke service, and top-rated cuisine, this is the place you can go spend the entire day.
Is it worth visiting? I would say that you must visit it if you want to discover the most luxurious places in Bali. You have enough activities to spend an entire day, a world-class restaurant with amazing Balinese food and let’s not forget the impressive 3 layered azure blue pools.
HOW TO GET TO ALAS HARUM & CRETYA UBUD
Alas, Harum Agrotourism and Cretya Ubud are located in the Tegallalang region of Ubud, in the North part of the town center and near the famous Tegallalang rice terraces. Read this article if you want to visit the rice fields of Tegallalang.
The address is Jl. Raya Tegallalang, Tegallalang, Kec. Tegallalang, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80561, Indonesia. How can you get there?
- You can book a personal driver for the day, that will walk you everywhere you need. I paid 400K IDR (27€ or 26 USD) and my driver was at all times with me, showing me around, entering with me everywhere I went, and, taking very nice pictures for me. They go the extra mile to make you feel comfortable and deliver a bespoke service.
- Take a taxi scooter. For instance, if you need to go for a relatively short distance and spend the day there, just look for locals that propose to drive you with their scooter. I usually paid between 50K and 80K IDR (3-6 €/USD), depending on the distance. They provide you with a helmet, as it is forbidden in Bali to ride without a helmet.
- Use the Go-Jek or Grab app to book a taxi. There is a standard base fare for Bali taxis of around 0.44 €/USD (7K IDR), and an additional charge per km of around 0.47 €/USD (7.5K IDR).
- Rent a bike and ride like Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love for total satisfaction.
What to see at ALAS HARUM
Alas, Harum has some of the most-rated swings in Bali. They also have a couple’s swing and a zip line over the rice terrace. Like everywhere else, here as well you can rent some amazing dresses to make the most memorable pictures.

Best time to visit the ALAS HARUM & CRETYA ubud
The best time to visit Alas Harum and Cretuya Ubud is in the morning. The tourists have not yet rushed in, so it will be more peaceful and quiet for you to enjoy a cup of coffee in their restaurant, or enjoy a swing ride and take lots of instagramable pictures for your feed in their 3 layered azure blue pools.
The Alas Harum opening hours are from 8 AM to 7 PM every day. The Cretya Ubud is open every day from 9 am to 9 pm. Please note that the pool area is only accessible to those who are 18 yo and above.
Tickets: I visited this place in August 2022 when I paid only an entrance fee for Alas Harum of 50K IDR (3 €/$). As of September 2022, both Cretya Ubud and Alas Harum charge a 50K IDR (3 €/$) entrance fee, even if you just want to go to their restaurant.
