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 multi award-wining resort stands on the edge of a stunning valley, surrounded by lush rain forests and picturesque rice terraces.

The Hanging Gardens has become famous for its  stunning split level infinity pool that has been named ‘the most amazing pool in the world’ by Conde Nast Traveller and Trip Advisor. The beautiful design and clear blue water seeming to cascade out into the jungle beyond. You would feel like you were floating on top of the trees.

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 and their own little infinity pool. 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.

Surrounded by an ancient architecture in the heart of the temple, you will be blessed by the Balinese priest or “Mangku” who will perform a Balinese Hindu purification ritual, followed by a relaxing, signature flower foot bath.

After this unique experience, in a completely relaxed state you are invited to a specially prepared dining bale over looking the magnificent view of the jungle valley below and the mountains of Bali in the distance.

As the night falls the temple, the bale and the paths leading into the jungle below are lit up with a myriad of twinkling candles. You will be served refreshing drinks and exotic Balinese appetisers.

The “Pièce de résistance” comes next with the serving of a Rijsttafel or “Traditional Rice Table”. The Rijsttafel’s origins date from the colonial Dutch days in Indonesia and was created to celebrate the exotic abundance of local cuisine and as a way of entertaining on a grand scale. The Rijsttafels features an array of traditional dishes that awaken all of the senses with flavors, spices and textures.
