Surrounded by ancient trees and steep terraced gardens, Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali is nestled on a hillside overlooking the Ayung River gorge, befitting its unusual name.

Perched amidst rice terraces looking out to the Pura Penataran Dalem Segara temple resting across the valley, on the opposite hillside, the property's 38 villas are constructed in contemporary Balinese style with thatched alang-alang roofs. Set high on wooden pillars with king-sized four-poster beds, indoor baths, outdoor showers and dramatic individual plunge pools with adjoining Bales - these villas provide visitors with a sense of literally hanging above the heart of the magical island.

The gardens, conceived by landscape architect William Warren (author of "Balinese Garden," Thames & Hudson), together with John Pettigrew, (who created the gardens at The Begawan Giri) are unique. Nature becomes a spectacle here, with exotic trees and essences of the tropics - cocoa, coffee, fruit trees, durian, rambutan, lychees, a variety of tropical bamboos, flame trees, bird of paradise flowers and orchids all forming part of nature's chorus at the Resort.

The Anglo-French architect Gordon Shaw respected the Group's wish to protect the environment by touching lightly on the grounds and utilizing only local materials: alang- alang as roofing, Bali's local wood Batu Jaember, Java stone in the pools, batiks, cottons, and Palimanan mural stone.

The Villas

Each of the Villas has an infinity pool, a traditional pavilion for relaxing called a balé, an open air shower, an interior bathroom with a hand-molded terrazzo bath and a huge bedroom with a four-poster bed and mosquito net.

The resort has three categories of Villas: 30 deluxe Pool Villas, of approximately 100 square meters; 6 deluxe Suite Pool Villas of 160 square meters; and two 2-bedroom Family Pool Villas of 160 meters each. The Villas are primarily finished in precious woods, with Merbau flooring inside, Benkirai outside, and utilizing wooden furniture with sculpted doors in the Balinese tradition.

A large elliptical infinity pool, built on two levels facing the river valley, emphasizes the natural curve of the hillside and the surrounding rice terraces. For those concerned that steps might impede locomotion, a surprising but welcome sight is the private funicular that permits easy access to the Villas, the restaurants, bars, boutique and library.

Béduur Restaurant

The restaurant features both Balinese and French cuisine. It enjoys a dramatic view of the other side of the valley where a dense curtain of tropical vegetation surround a temple that looms over the Ayung River gorge.

Diatas Pohon Café

The Café also looks down over the Ayung River, with its terrace seemingly poised on gigantic treetops. Designed to provide a restful ambience in which to enjoy light and healthy cuisine served in this outlet.

Bukit Becik Bar

The Resort's bar is located near the main pool and the river, offering an excellent setting for relaxing long drinks at sunset.

Ayung Spa, by Ytsara

The Ayung Spa, set close by the Ayung River, shares the beauty of the rainforest, waterfalls and birdsong. Guests indulge in exotic treatments in three riverside Spa Villas

Each pavilion comprises two large spaces: one with two massage beds and a Balinese sofa, the other with a dressing area and bathroom with a bath that, surrounded by water, looks out onto the river.

Two Pansea Orient Express Properties in Bali

In addition to the newly opened Ubud Hanging Gardens, Bali the company also operates another Pansea Orient Express Hotels property in Bali - Jimbaran Puri Bali.
