Perched on steep slopes of the misty Ayung River valley, the thatched roof villas of this small boutique hotel seem to float above the mist, rising from the lush rain forest. “Hanging Gardens” is a well deserved name.
So steep are slopes of the gorge that a cable serves as a means of transport within the hotel. Itself an attraction and a local idiosyncrasy, it’s a necessity above all, sparing guests from climbing hundreds of steps.
The cable tram ride begins by the reception and lobby, the highest point of the hotel.
Half way down, there is the Beduur Restaurant, bar and one of the most famous swimming pools in Bali: the two level, infinity edge basins of elliptical shape. The ride ends at the bottom of the gorge, by the Ayung Spa and café, overlooking the river.
The villas are elegant, simple and romantic, and are decorated in a slightly ethnic style. Bedroom, sporting a four-poster bed and floor-to-ceiling windows, opens to the terrace and infinity pool, and most villas have a most remarkable view across the valley.
