NOT JUST THE RESORT OR THE HOTEL. WE ARE THE DESTINATION.
The Hanging Gardens of Bali is a luxurious destination in the heart of the jungle. It is situated near Payangan: a village North of Ubud, whilst the hotel rests in the centre of the magical island of Gods.
Overlooking the Ayung River and ancient Dalem Segara temple, the award-wining resort stands on the edge of a stunning valley, surrounded by lush rain forests and picturesque rice terraces. Each villa is designed with traditional Alang Alang thatched roofs in complete harmony with nature. The verdant gardens have an indigenous flora and fauna such as cocoa and coffee trees, which blend serenely with bamboo, flame trees and orchids to create a unique tropical paradise. The truly luxurious Spa Collection combines natural, local ingredients and ancient techniques to create beauty therapies and treatments that soothe the mind, rejuvenate the body and energize the soul.
Previously, TripAdvisor and Condé Nast Traveller named our Twin-Tiered Cascading Pool as the “World’s Best Swimming Pool” and a number one honeymoon destination in Bali. Hanging Gardens of Bali recognized as number one in the list of the 40 Most Unique Swimming Pools Around The World by Architecture and Design in 2015.
In 2015, the resort has won a number of awards, equivalent to “Oscars in the Hospitality Industry”: World Luxury Hotels Awards, Seven Star Global Luxury Awards, World Travel Awards as well as other prestigious recognitions such as the World Luxury Spa Awards and the World Luxury Restaurant Awards.
The Hanging Gardens of Bali was conceived in 2003 and completed in 2005. The concept was to create something magical and authentic in the heart of the Balinese jungle: an immersive experience in a natural tropical environment.
With 700 local craftsmen using traditional materials and adapting indigenous ideas, the resort took shape in the heart of Ubud. A winding path of 88 steps leads from the reception to the restaurant; built with Feng Shui principles to mean infinity and stability of energy: an important factor when building on a 45 degree angle.
At the geographical epicenter and our spiritual core, is the World’s most remarkable Swimming Pool. It is without a doubt one of the most photographed pools and has the unique distinction of being named “The World’s Best Swimming Pool” by Condé Nast Traveller and number one on Trip Advisor’s list.
