Ubud is a town with a fascinating and rich history. Both in art and healing. It explains why it is a central place for contemporary artists as well as spiritual practitioners to gather. The town was originally important as a source of medicinal herbs and plants. The name ‘Ubud’ comes from the Balinese word ubad which means medicine.
Tourism on the island developed after the arrival of Walter Spies, an ethnic German born in Russia who taught painting and music as well as dabbled in dance. Walter Spies and a few other foreign painters such as Willem Hofker and Rudolf Bonnet entertained celebrities including Charlie Chaplin, Noël Coward, Barbara Hutton, H.G. Wells and Vicki Baum, contributing to Ubud becoming the cultural centre of Bali.
