UBUD HANGING GARDENS
Perched above a gorge, villas are set in lush rainforest dotted with ancient temples
High on verdant cliffs, facing an ancient temple, the villas of Ubud Hanging Gardens sit among lush rainforest with infinity pools offering spectacular views. Built in the traditional way, with thatched roofs and outdoor showers, these magical retreats are surrounded by the chatter of monkeys and the song of tropical birds.
Days can be spent relaxing deep in the valley, learning to create Balinese dishes at the cooking school, visiting temples in verdant gorges, meeting local craft workers and purchasing their wares or making adventurous treks up nearby volcanoes.
