My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 7 nights in November/December 2013. We stayed in the second level from the top, which let us enjoy the magnificent views. Nothing feels better then waking up early morning, sun shining, water in the pool already nice and warm and inviting you in for a morning swim. The mornings were the... More

Wow wow wow. The view, the location, the quietness of the place, the beauty of the room. This ace is just magic. We loved the room, you can actually stay there all day long and just go out for a walk outside the hotel. Its the ace to go to relax and chill out, not for partying

One of the most picturesque hotel view I have ever been. The serenity of the location truly is a slice of heaven. Very friendly and accommodating staff, so full of smiles too!-Top Notch! Then again, this is what we have come to expect from Balinese service quality. Unfortunately, the rooms are dated, breakfast was mediocre, and so many hidden charges!... More

Upon mentioning about Hanging Garden, what is the first thing that comes into your mind? - The infinity pool and with a standalone villa over a gradient of the hill facing the greenery. Simply the most beautiful hotel ever. :) I always have a set a list to look out for whenever we check into the hotel. First, the service... More

We stayed here for three days in late February / early March and it was amazing! The setting of this hotel is just stunning. Although it seems to take for-ever to get there, the hotel seems like something out of an Indiana Jones movie or a Dos Equis commercial (you know, the most interesting man in the world...) -- you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hidden deep in the natural beauty of Bali's rich rainforest, this luxury 5-star hotel has 38 private thatched villas, each with its own infinity pool. The hotel, with its stunning and much-lauded twin-level cascading pools, overlooks rich jungle landscapes and the holy Ayung River, with an ancient temple opposite on the other side of a spectacular plunging gorge. Hanging Gardens Ubud offers supreme luxury and ultimate privacy combined with five star service set to the sounds of chattering monkeys and native birds. The hotel's renowned Beduur Restaurant serves exceptional dishes with Asian, Western and Mediterranean influences, using indigenous herbs and spices grown in the neighboring village and freshly-caught fish from Jimbaran Bay. A pair of funiculars take guests through the jungle to the terraced levels of the property. The verdant gardens were designed by landscape architect John Pettigrew and incorporate local flora and fauna such as cocoa and coffee trees, which blend serenely with bamboo, flame trees and orchids to create a unique tropical paradise. The truly luxurious Ayung Spa uses local ingredients and ancient techniques, combined to create beauty therapies and treatments that soothe the mind, rejuvenate the body and energise the soul. Most of the staff come from the local village, which the hotel takes great care to support with programs such as the planned new library for the village school, which guests are invited to contribute books to. If you are looking for a the ultimate jungle escape, then come and let us create it for you at Hanging Gardens Ubud. ... more   less
