Swimming in the jungle surrounded by palm trees sounds expensive, doesn’t it? Not in Ubud, Bali. There is a hotel named “Jungle Fish” with palm trees at every corner. They call it the “No Beach Beach Club.”
It’s one of the most scenic spots in Ubud to sit and have breakfast, lunch or just a drink. It’s also perfect for anyone looking to have a relaxing day of just laying in the sun and admiring nature.
Is it open to the public?
Yes. Anyone can enjoy swimming at Jungle Fish, even if you are not staying in their suites. You just pay a small fee and you get access to the pool for the entire day.
How much is it?
The entrance to the pool is $10 USD (or 150,000 IDR) for adults. The fee for children is $5 USD (75,000 IDR) This includes admission for the entire day. Since the entrance includes full day admission and times are not limited, be aware that it is a first come first serve basis.
If you’re wanting to actually stay in the suites at Jungle Fish, expect to pay much more. Rooms start at around $200 USD ( 3,000,000 IDR). You can reserve rooms on their website here. There are special sections by the pool reserved for guests staying in the hotel.
Those staying in the suites or villas should check their website for offers beforehand. Sometimes they will have special offers like “Save 10% when paying for your reservation in full.” Save as much as you can so you can use the money saved for another adventure!

Food and Drinks
There is both a bar and a restaurant located on Jungle Fish property. I personally only went to the bar because it was located next to the oh-so-popular pool.
Once you enter the pool area, you can choose a seat and the waiters will come to you with menus. From there, they will take your order and it will be prepared while you’re swimming. If at any point you want to order more, all they suggest is to raise your hand and a waiter will come to you (even if you’re in the pool swimming). The food service made me feel like a I was at some fancy schmancy restaurant but at the same time the most I spent was $20!
When is the best time to go?
The best time to go to Jungle Fish, or Bali, Indonesia in general, is around April to June. This is during their dry season. I went in March which is right when their rainy season was coming to an end and it rained half the time I was at Jungle Fish. Even if you do get stuck in some rain, I can tell you (from experience) that it is still a beautiful sight!
You can get to Jungle Fish by both Grab and Uber.
