I loved walking across the valley to the temple on the other side where a romantic picnic had been set up in the beautiful, jungle surroundings.

To start planning your vacation to Hanging Gardens Ubud


The Hanging Gardens Ubud is just a 20-minute drive from Ubud town, yet the scenery here is far more dramatic, with steep hillside drops to the Ayung River and overgrown tropical forest sprawling onto the road - you could be miles from anywhere here.

Hanging Gardens Ubud comprises a collection of Balinese pool villas built in the style of a traditional village perched on a hillside in the heart of the lush green countryside. There are absolutely spectacular views from your private pool, which appears to hang off the edge. A unique funicular is embedded amongst the rice terraces permitting access to the villas and the facilities.

Terraced into the hillside, the Hanging Gardens Ubud's restaurants and bars draw you closer to the breathtaking natural surrounds of the hotel and serve exceptional dishes with French, Asian and Mediterranean influences. Champagne breakfasts, picnics and romantic private dinners can also be arranged and cooking classes are available for those wanting to learn the chef's secrets to Balinese delicacies.


The 38 luxury villas all have private pools and are furnished with local silks and natural cottons. The 30 Panoramic Deluxe Pool Villas & Riverside Deluxe Pool Villas have sweeping views of the valley or the riverside. The Panoramic Pool Villa Suites have a very spacious living area and sweeping views over the valley and hillside beyond. The Two Bedroom Family Villas are spread over two storeys and have two terraces and indoor and outdoor bathrooms.

A wide variety of food and drink is served at the Hanging Garden Ubud's restaurants which have views of the valleys, temple and gorges over the Ayung River. The open air Bukit Becik Bar and Diatas Pohon Cafe are casual whereas the Beduur Restaurant offers fine dining. The Hanging Gardens Ubud can also arrange private dining and lavish picnics. A highlight is a stunning 2 level main pool which teeters on the edge of the cliff over Ubud's spectacular rainforest and the peaceful Balinese Ayung Spa.


Bicycles are available at the resort free of charge and there is also a complimentary shuttle to Ubud. Cooking, painting, yoga and meditation classes are also available to guests and for those wishing to venture out, trekking, rafting and bird watching are all popular activities in this areas as well as the artistic and cultural highlights of Ubud.

Location & Directions

Bali, Indonesia

Hanging Gardens Ubud is located in the peaceful Buahan village of Ubud, just 25 minutes away from the town center. It enjoys spectacular views of the surrounding hills, the lush rainforest and the winding Ayung River in the gorge below.

When to go

Straddling the equator, Indonesia tends to have a fairly even climate year-round. Rather than four seasons, Indonesia has two – dry (between May to September) and wet (between October to April) – and there are no extremes of temperature between winter and summer. In most parts of Indonesia, the wet season falls between October and April and the dry season between May and September. December and January see Bali at its most humid and rain tends to come in sudden tropical downpours, but it can also rain for more prolonged periods.
