Hanging Gardens Resort, Ubud

Styled to resemble a traditional Balinese village, this hillside retreat offers an contemporary view onto traditional Ubud. Deep in the Indonesian jungle surrounded by mountainous cloud forest, Hanging Gardens Resort is the quintessential Indonesian hideaway. 38 rooms and suites all have their own infinity edged pools and the spa here is not to be missed.

Location

Nestled on the outskirts of the cultural capital Ubud, the resort is easily accessed from Bali international airport in just under two hours. Complimentary shuttles run all day from the resort into the center of town so any urges for on the spot cultural encounters can be easily satisfied.

Your room

Cuddling the edge of the hillside with vistas of emerald rivers and ancient temples far below, the thatched pool villas ooze understated class and style. The Balinese influenced bedrooms, featuring elegant four poster beds, are cozy and luxurious in the same breath whilst floor to ceiling windows lead straight out onto your private pool deck. The highlight of any of the villas is of course the infinity pools which offer the perfect vantage point onto your surroundings.

Why we like it

We loved eating under the stars on the edge of the pool with the smell of exotic ylang-ylang reeds thick in the air. Make sure to take a cooking class with one of the hotels head chefs who’ll verse you on the ins and outs of loads of traditional recipes too.
