The 16th UWRF will be held on 23–27 October 2019, celebrating the theme “Karma” a Hindu philosophy that’s known universally which means “what goes around comes around”.

Held annually in Ubud, Bali's artistic and cultural heartland, the Ubud Writers & Readers Festival has become Southeast Asia's largest and most renowned cultural and literary event. The mission of Ubud Writers & Readers Festival is to create a world-class festival that celebrates extraordinary stories and amplifies brave voices while trying to tackle global issues.

1. “Perfect Family Holiday” by Brookieh_37
“We are so happy we found this place! Spacious, super clean rooms with separate bedrooms perfect for if you have one kid napping and one not, kitchen you can cook a proper meal in (rather than drag the kids to a restaurant then try to get them to sit down and eat), water cooler so you can refill your own water bottles, 5 mins walk to supermarket, stunning grownup pool, separate kids pool and great kids club both catering for all ages from bubs to teens, delicious food, long happy hours, divine massages, and every lovely staff member becomes your friend by the end of your stay! I can not fault one thing about PP Suites
We’ll be back next year for sure!
