Folk Pool & Gardens
Folk Pool & Gardens is undoubtedly one of our fav all-day hangs in Ubud. The restaurant, a long-time favourite of ours, has expanded into a full scale pool/bar and garden. Located smack bang in the centre of town, on Jl. Monkey Forest, this vibrant venue is a hot spot in the hood.
Street-front is the Folk restaurant, with earthy interiors and funky wall art, it is a welcome getaway from the hustle & bustle and tourist traps of Monkey Forest Road. Enjoy a relaxed meal in the restaurant or up your level of chill by taking your meal poolside.
The Folk Pool & Gardens is Ubud’s first swim-up pool/ joglo bar. With a unique style that was inspired by local haphazhard renovations; rusty iron aged teak tables are complemented by artisan chandeliers and floor to celing drapes.
The pool is lined with tables and chairs on one side and private daybeds on the other. If you’re committed to being submersed in the water all day you can eat and drink at the tables in the pool (I know, right!) or at the poolside bar! Rehydrate with a coconut or two, or relax with a few cocktails; our fav is the frozen margarita!
The menu at Folk is diverse, offering something for everyone. They’ve truly nailed both Indonesian and international dishes. The health conscious have many options; refreshing (and perfectly instagrammable) smoothie bowls, the cumin spiced pumpkin sandwich a vegan treat and a wide variety of yummy salads. The soft shell crab burger is a standout at Folk, we definitely rate the pizza, and if you’re looking for an Indonsian treat, we highly recommend the Rijsttafel!
