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

My fiance and I are supposed to visit this hotel in October for our honeymoon - we booked the trip before the hotel changed ownership and now have not been able to reach anyone to confirm our reservation. All of our other hotels have gotten back to us within 24 hours, which seems like the right level of service for... More

The Hanging Gardens Ubud hotel is a great place to stay. It's tucked away in the jungle right outside Ubud, with peaceful surroundings and amazing views. The villa itself had a comfortable bed, a nice indoor and outdoor shower, a large outdoor seating area, and an awesome infinity pool overlooking the valley. It was probably one of the coolest setups... More

My wife and I stayed at this beautifully located spot in June 2014. We stayed for 4 nights, a nice villa with private pool. Both my wife and I have visited the wider Ubud area quite a few times over the past 10 years, but first time to stay at this particular property. Overall, our experience was genuinely a bit... More

Me and my wife came for the astonishing double-layered pool and it was amazing. One of the best swimming pool we have ever seen! we went down to the bar and pool area for an afternoon coffee and snacks, even though the price was expensive but the breathtaking scenery and relaxed atmosphere really worth the penny.

The hotel is nice and quite, panoramic pool villa is gr8t. The pool can be heated with extra $50/day but they heated only to 29' Celsius which is still cold. Very expensive to book excursions or taxi or even massage in the hotel. So do any excursions in Ubud. Companies like Sobek but little expensive, also Banting cycling, and Sari... 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
