Gianyar, Bali, Indonesia

Hoshinoya Bali is a resort village nestled in a Balinese jungle that flourishes atop a hill, which drops off to a sacred river flowing below.

The god Indra is said to have created the famous spring of Tirta Empul when he thrust his sword into the earth and drew water from the ground.

These holy waters flow into the Pakerisan River, nurturing the jungles of Ubud that grow along its banks.

Its booming roar echoes throughout the premises, while its waters turn into mists and rainclouds that constantly replenish the lush sheen of the resort’s trees and plants.

One defining characteristic of a community is the sharing of water from the same source.

You can see this in the subak, an irrigation system that has for more than 1,000 years nurtured a spirit of cooperation among the Balinese while sustaining the island’s renowned rice terraces.

The pristine waters that run through Hoshinoya Bali come from subaks; they shape the very design of the resort.

By sharing this water, you, too, become a part of the community, partaking in Ubud’s philosophy and culture.

All guest villas have private access to one of three strikingly beautiful, palatial canal-like pools, offering aquatic bliss to all those who enter their waters.

Japanese-style tiered rooftops of the villas sit alongside thatch-topped gazebos (made from sacred Balinese alang-alang tree) and punctuate the tropical flora that runs through.

The size means plenty of secluded spots to read a book or enjoy the pervading views in peace. In particular, the seven Café Gazebos – couch-lined cages that jut out into the valley, give the feeling of hanging among the treetops.

Ubud culture can also be found inside the villas, in the form of woodcarvings and other Balinese art.

Ingredients and spices bring out the best in each other, allowing guests to discover the joys of Balinese cuisine in a setting backdropped by majestic jungles.
Spa rooms are located halfway down the hill from the resort, so guests become more attuned to the sounds and energies of the jungle, as well as the Pakerisan River below–an environment more conducive to deep relaxation.
A yoga gazebo that overlooks the Pakerisan River Valley offers guests opportunities to relax twice a day.
Morning sessions are designed for awakening; night sessions are for meditating in the moonlight.
Three canal-like swimming pools cut across the resort’s premises.
They are open all day and can be directly accessed from one’s guest villa, just past a private area demarcated by a carefully arranged water garden.
Located along the 70-meter length of each pool are lounges and gazebos where guests can sit back with a book or simply take a nap to bask in the tropical breezes that blow through.
In Bali, it is customary to bathe several times a day to stay comfortable in the island’s tropical heat; guests are invited to participate in this tradition for a truly relaxing waterside experience.
Ubud has long been an artistic center, where traditional art forms have evolved with the influence of visiting foreign artists.
Villas in HOSHINOYA Bali feature walls decorated with wood-engraved pictures, each one telling a different story related to Ubud’s birds, flowers, and trees.
The stone walls of the poolside living areas also feature complex engravings with plant and animal motifs, creating an aesthetic connection between the villa interior and the majestic jungles that extend beyond the villa.
You hear a gentle breeze passing through the villa; it is this seamless link to the outdoors that defines true Balinese relaxation.
If guests do want to explore, a shuttle runs to and from central Ubud.
For snorkeling and diving, guests should visit Candidasa, a quiet area on the island’s east coast that offers respite from the bustle of central Bali.
For emerald green jungles, guests should head to Padang Bai; a walk up the coast will take them to a popular “hidden” beach, Blue Lagoon Beach.
For beachside cafes and restaurants, guests are encouraged to explore Sanur, a resort area in the south that is popular with tourists from all over the world.
