We stayed here for four nights in July 2014. We had the panoramic villa. As someone who normally doesn't book hotels in Asia that aren't part of a big chain group, I can safely say that this hotel is probably among the best I have ever experienced. The location is stunning, and the fact that this hotel could even exist... More

Had an absolutely fantastic time here. It was lovely to be able to get away from the hustle and bustle of busy party central Ubud and return to a tranquil relaxing place, surrounded by all this nature. But yes, wished they offered more shuttle bus services. Staff went above and beyond to ensure we enjoyed our stay there, giving ample... More

Its a nice small hotel.. amazing view and swimming pool. The management need to pay attention to the quality of the amenities (soaps, shampoo,etc), the gazebo's sofa seem to have molds, when it rained it leaked outside.. with the price they are charging they really need to make an improvement otherwise its not worth the value..

While I am very fond of Ubud and of Bali, this stay at Hanging gardens was especially beautiful. The setting is lovely, amidst lush green hills. The infinity pool is a remarkable sight, and a lovely swimming experience. Though of course, we ended up doing most of the swimming in the tiny pool in our villa which had fabulous views... More

I had a great day at Hanging Gardens Ubud, The place is amazingly beautiful in the middle of mountains & Jungles. The panoramic suit with swimming pool was beautiful , only the water was really cold , which was due to management change when I asked them.

This is currently our second night at the hotel and I think 2 nights is more than enough here! Apart from the Pool there is nothing special about this hotel. For a 5 star hotel and the price you pay for the room you would expect a quality service and expect staff to go out of their way to make... More

Let me begin with a huge thank you to all the staff members of the hotel. The service was warm, prompt and exceeded all expectations. I stayed with my friend at one of the private suites at UGH for three nights. The property is located in the most scenic landscape in Bali and the views will definitely take your breath... More

There's not much else to say other than this hotel ticks all of the boxes of a luxury joint (great service, lovely rooms, good restaurant) but it's location is what makes it truly magical. The views are incredible and exploring the area (try the treasure hunt) is a joy. We stayed on our honeymoon and it could not have been... More

We really wanted to do this hotel as part of our honeymoon because of the iconic pool and because at the time it was part of the Orient Express hotel family (so good food and good service pretty much guaranteed). When we came to trying to book (around a year ago) we found the hotel was no longer run by... More

Dear Matthew, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us at Hanging Gardens. We are glad you liked our unique jungle setting but very sorry other aspects did not live up to expectations. The damp smell is one of the constant challenges of our very tropical garden surroundings so we do try to air all guest... More

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
