Utopia Found— In a romantic Jungle Haven in Bali


Close your eyes and imagine a place encircled by the exotic beauty of nature. A magical haven surrounded by the chatter of monkeys and a symphony of tropical birds, that is sure to leave you spellbound. A place so exclusive, that you will feel like you are the only one there. Imagine no further…

Tucked into the verdant landscape, with private pools that seem to ripple down into the valley’s slopes, are the villas of Ubud Hanging Gardens. Set in lush rainforest dotted by ancient temples and complete with traditional thatched roofs and outdoor showers, this place is a magnet for romance. Perched deep in the valley is the resort’s famous infinity-edge swimming pool, which stands on two levels, and a perfect spot where guests can enjoy this almost euphoric view, as you set your sight to the horizon, overlooking the Ayung River. In addition to the main pool, all rooms and villas have their own individual infinity swimming pool, for your own private indulgence. The resort is part of the iconic Orient-Express Collection and offers a wide range of facilities and amenities to make your tropical paradise experience unforgettable. If what you are looking for is a touch of glamour, then surrender to the secrets of Balinese well-being at the Ayung Spa, and choose from a variety of extraordinary services— from a 60 min Balinese massage to a 180 min soothing aromatic treatment. After a relaxing day at the spa, enjoy a delicious cocktail as you marvel at the breathtaking views of moon-like lava fields set across the valley. Another must-visit spot in the resort will surely satisfy your senses…

Endulge in culinary excellence as you step foot in the resort’s five-star restaurant, Beduur, where you will find exceptional dishes with Asian, western and Mediterranean influences. In the mood for a little privacy? You can also choose to dine-in from the secluded terrace of your villa, with sights of twinkling lights across a dramatic gorge. Ready for some adventure? Then hop on board your bike and take a scenic ride past volcanoes, across ancient temples and straight into Ubud, Bali’s “cultural capital”. Or fly above the vast greenery on a 15-minute helicopter ride that will take you directly to the sands of the Jimbaran Puri Bali. Although it is said that the best way to experience Bali is to pedal there on a 90-minute bicycle ride, one thing’s for sure, whichever way you choose to get there, you have found UTOPIA.
