Hanging Gardens of Bali

Desa Buahan, Payangan, Bali, Indonesia


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.

At the geographical epicentre 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. Designed by a specialist architect, the striking formation is suspended over the dense rainforest, giving swimmers the unique sensation of floating above the treetops.

The hotel’s 44 private villas reflect the island’s natural, serene beauty. Every suite has a sense of discrete luxury, combining contemporary and Balinese décor, with signature hand-crafted furniture, exotic fabrics, open-aired dining areas and spectacular master bathrooms.

Three Elements - offers an à la carte selection of appetizers, entrées and desserts as well as two unique tasting menus with optional wine pairing using the highest quality products and impeccable technique to create a modern Indonesian cuisine. Spectacular misty views of the rain forest by day and a thousand candles lighting up the night await all guests to the restaurant and lounge / bar.
Guests can also select from a range of romantic dining experiences including a Romantic Temple Dinner, set in a sacred and magical location, followed by a walk and purification ritual with a local mangku and a Traditional Balinese Blessing ritual, made by the local priest. A candlelit ‘Romance under the Stars’, dining ‘à deux’ on a volcanic rock pillar in the iconic swimming pool; or a gourmet picnic served in a secluded balé right on the banks of the spectacular Ayung River.
