Description: Karsa Cafe/Kafe is a simple and lovely open air cafe ideally situated overlooking the rice fields. A perfect place to have a drink or food after the glorious walk along the famous Campuhan Ridge heading north from Ubud. This is one of the most beautiful walks in all of Bali. We sell simple but delicious Indonesian favourites and healthy, fresh juices. We have recently opened Karsa Spa nearby with Reiki, Shiatsu, Deep Tissue therapeutic and healing bodywork and organic spa treatments. Leave the hustle and bustle of Ubud for a day! Come and spend healthy time walking the ridge then relaxing at our cafe and spa. Our sunsets are amazing too!

“An welcome Oasis along the Capuan Ridge walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

We visit Karsa Cafe often when staying near Ubud as we enjoy the Campuan ridge walk so much. Karsa offers sensational views across rice paddies toward the mountains. The owners have recently added 3 new raised thatched bale's surrounded by water, which are fantastic for small groups to relax, share some food and enjoy a drink while watching the sun set. The food is basic Indonesian/Balinese, but good and very well priced. The staff are charming and gracious hosts. Karsa also has three Villas at this location for rent, also very good value at around $30 a night.

“Karsa cafe, most rewarding place after a 2 km walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 29, 2012 via mobile

Karsa cafe placed in the rice fields is the perfect spot to rest after a beautiful walk from Ubud. The private little terraces in de pont are great to enjoy a meal/a drink and rest a while. The free wifi in the middle of now where makes it even better. The food is great. The staff really nice. The views just perfect. They also have bungalows for rent

“Views to die for”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

The Karsa Cafe is ideally situated facing west and overlooking the terraced rice fields
a gorgeous 15 or 20 minute walk north from Ubud along the Campuan Ridge.
I know it well. I live in the village of Sebali just up the road and walk my dog along
the ridge twice daily and often stop in to the Karsa for a drink. It's lovely any time
of day but DO try to visit late in the afternoon when the light can be spectacular.
