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 Of Bali” is a well-deserved name.
Hanging Gardens Of Bali is built on a very steep slope descending straight to the Ayung River. So steep is the descent that a cable had to be installed on the grounds of the hotel, serving as the main way of transportation.
The funicular is a necessity, sparing guests from climbing hundreds of steps, but it is also an attraction and a local idiosyncrasy.
The cable tram ride begins by the reception and lobby, the highest point of the hotel and ends at the bottom of the gorge, by the spa and the café overlooking the river.
Halfway down, there is the Three Elements restaurant and bar and one of the most famous swimming pools in Bali: the two-level, infinity-edge basins of elliptical shape.
Designed for the maximum effect, the striking form of the multi-tier pool appears suspended over the dense rainforest, giving a unique sensation of floating above the treetops.
The villas are elegant, simple and romantic, and are decorated with hints of 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 remarkable view of the valley.
The amazing views are one of the key elements of the experience here. The sight of the mist lifting from the lush jungle growing in the Ayung Valley as you chill in the private swimming pool is a memory worth keeping.
