The Four Seasons Sayan is a tranquil retreat tucked away amongst the lush jungle greenery on the banks of the Ayung River, that flows through a river valley in the heart of Ubud. Arriving at tree-level, you make your way across a wooden footbridge to the huge circular lotus pond that seems to float, suspended above the canopy.
You make your way down to the lobby and are immediately confronted with the arresting views of the lush valley and surrounding working rice paddies. The 60 rooms and suites are dotted amongst the grounds, built from local timber and thatched Alang-Alang roofs. Rooms vary from Suite for two tucked in the jungle to the capacious Two Bedroom River View Villas or the Royal Villa, with incredible views of the tumbling Ayung River and lush green surrounds.
The Balinese-style spa is the perfect escape after a long day of exploring the volcanoes and jungle that surround you, particularly special is the traditional Balinese massage.
