Ubud Hanging Gardens by Orient-Express:
“With 38 luxury villas designed by Anglo/French architect Gordon Shaw, each with a private infinity plunge pool overlooking the Ayung river, feel your stress ebb away as you relax into your private sanctuary and enjoy sensational views of the surrounding verdant gardens of this tropical resort.
The resort is situated in the steep rice terraces of Ubud and offers with sweeping views across the Ayung River valley. Each luxury Balinese style private villa provides the perfect location to escape, relax and unwind. A private funicular provides easy access to the resorts facilities.
Our large infinity pool emphasizes the natural curves of the hillside. Created on two levels it is surrounded by stylish and comfortable sunbeds for ultimate relaxation. In addition to the main pool each room and suite has its own individual infinity pool, which can be access from the terrace for extra exclusivity and seclusion.
The grand gardens surrounding the resort were conceived by the landscape architect William Warren together with John Pettigrew. Nature is a spectacle here with exotic trees and essences of the tropics including cocoa, coffee, durian and a variety of bamboos, flame trees and orchids creating a symbiosis of tropical life.
The resort’s Bukit Becik bar near the main pool down by the river offers an excellent setting for a relaxing long drink at sunset and our beautiful Balinese boutique sells local crafts and clothing from all over the Indonesian archipelago.”
