In addition to the stunning jungle infinity pool, the complete Jungle Fish Bali experience includes a hip pool bar, laid-back vibes, and scrumptious Mediterranean-influenced food. If you’re heading to Bali and looking for a taste of modern luxury and relaxation, Jungle Fish Bali is most certainly your ticket.

The Jungle Infinity Pool
The glory of Jungle Fish Bali is its spectacular jungle infinity pool, a hop and a skip from the winding river of the Osh River Valley in Ubud, Indonesia. Immersing guests in the verdant natural landscape that makes Ubud so charming, Chapung Se Bali Resort’s Jungle Fish pool club gets our vote for the best pool in Ubud, Indonesia. This turquoise pool framed by palm trees takes you right to the edge of the viridescent wonder of the Balinese wilderness, offering an unobstructed view of nature’s eye candy.

The “no beach… beach club” of Jungle Fish is designed with two levels. The second level has a restaurant perfect for enjoying a sunny lunch with a magnificent view of the pool deck and jungle below. Grab an afternoon bite at the restaurant while enjoying the scenery, or choose to enjoy your food and drinks on the first level pool deck (which is exactly what we did!). With sun loungers, hanging beds, caves and cabanas, and poolside tables, there’s tons of options for your style of pool-side relaxation. In the glimmering heat of the Balinese tropical paradise, there’s nothing better than kicking back on a shaded lounger by the jungle infinity pool with a fruity drink and a flavorful Mediterranean platter!
A Taste of the Mediterranean in Bali, Indonesia
The jungle infinity pool is most certainly the shining star of this Ubud resort paradise in Indonesia, but the delicious Mediterranean-influenced food also pumps up the Jungle Fish Bali experience. Either on the second floor restaurant or poolside, grabbing a bite to eat at Jungle Fish Bali is essential to enjoying the complete Chapung Se Bali Resort experience. With dishes boasting both Asian and Mediterranean flavors, guests can enjoy the tastes of Greece, France, Italy, and Spain while enjoying the beautiful Ubud scenery in Bali.
When we first arrived to Jungle Fish, we were starving! We had just been driven from Munduk to Bedegul, and then from Bedegul to Ubud—the journey took hours, and we hadn’t had a bite to eat all day. After spreading out comfortably across our sun loungers by the jungle infinity pool, we were helped right away and were able to order right from our magnificent poolside spot.
We started with a Mezze Platter to share—a heavenly assortment of mini pita, fried calamari, grilled prawn, tzatziki-topped lamb, and creamy beetroot feta topped with falafel. Unique from most food we found in Bali, the Mediterranean flavors and fresh ingredients of the Mezze Platter were a superb way to appease our appetites while enjoying the view of the lush jungle. Next, we feasted on a Mexican Burger (with guacamole, jalapenos, sour cream, and salsa) and a Smoked Salmon Panini (with sour cream, capers, dill, and arugula/rocket on ciabatta—yum!). Both dishes were positively divine with bold, bright flavors and came with fries. And I must say, they’re some of the best fries we’ve had in a long time!
After our dishes, we were left satisfied and pleasantly full, but one more thing caught our eye that we just had to indulge in—the Jungle Bowl. The incredibly refreshing Jungle Bowl is a dragonfruit smoothie bowl topped with yogurt, mango, coconut flakes, quinoa, strawberry, granola, and mint, and it was hands down the best smoothie bowl I’ve had in my life. Yes, it was SO much better than Nalu Bowls and about the same price (or cheaper!). Light and fruity, with just the right dose of sweetness and texture, the Jungle Bowl was the perfect way to end the meal and cool off in the heat.
Bold & Fruity Cocktails
|The Jungle Fish pool bar is conveniently located near all lounging areas, so you’re never more than a flick of the wrist away from ordering a refreshing cocktail. With an expansive cocktail menu of daiquiris, mojitos, frozen drinks, iced drinks, fizzy drinks, or your good ol’ classics, the bar has anything you want to kick back and relax on a sunny day by the jungle infinity pool. I grabbed a frozen mango and mint spiced daiquiri myself and was smitten with its perfect trifecta of flavors, from the sweet mango to the bold mint and the final spicy kick that added that lovely extra little surprise.|
Plenty of Non-Alcoholic Drinks
If you’re not looking for alcohol—Jungle Fish has got you covered! The non-alcoholic drink menu is also quite developed and equally exciting, with everything from healthy detox juices, to tasty smoothies, milkshakes, teas, coffee and coffee drinks, and granitas. We grabbed a scrumptious mango smoothie and dragonfruit smoothie for ourselves!
A Unique Brand of Luxury in Ubud
From our very first step onto the resort grounds and the Jungle Fish pool area, we were completely obsessed with the thoughtful and modern minimalist design that makes the Chapung Se Bali Resort so unique. From the gorgeous details, such as the glass fish design on the walls, to the stunning furniture, which we learned was all custom-designed by the owner of the Chapung Se Bali Resort at his factory in Java, every element of Jungle Fish and the Chapung Se Bali Resort and Spa speaks to luxury and beauty. As if the 35 m-long infinity pool in the tropical rainforest wasn’t enough to make Jungle Fish a must-visit on any luxury vacation to Bali, the Chapung Se Bali Resort & Spa offers even more for a true relaxing experience.
The Complete Chapung Se Bali Resort Experience
If you’re looking for a perfect relaxing Indonesia vacation experience, enjoy a sunny pool-side day at Jungle Fish, followed up with a massage at their pool-side spa and a truly treat yourself experience at the fine-dining dinner restaurant Di Abing restaurant. The Chapung Spa is right next to the pool, a lovely retreat for those looking to treat themselves to a massage, facial, healing therapies, or a fabulous treatment package using natural and even hand-crafted products. Also conveniently close by, Di Abing Restaurant is a unique fusion of Asian and Mediterranean flavors, melded together by the talented Chef Wuisan Chandra. Located on top of the Jungle Fish deck and restaurant, Di Abing showcases a miraculous view in a very romantic fine-dining experience.
If you love Jungle Fish and its jungle infinity pool as much as we did, you might want to look into staying at the Chapung Se Bali Resort as well. Already offering the perfect Bali Ubud resort experience with luxury villas boasting private swimming pools, Chapung Se Bali is also building a whole new set of gorgeous suites to make any Bali resort vacation even more exquisite.
