When researching the best hotels in Bali, The Hanging Gardens was right at the top of the list.
It has to be one of the most instagrammable resorts I’ve ever seen, with that massive infinity pools hanging in the jungle, it is just breath-taking. As soon as I saw pictures of it I knew I had to Stay.
Out of all luxury holiday destinations in Bali, this came out as the best. So if you’re looking for Luxury getaways and where to stay in Bali this is the winner.
The Hanging Garden was expensive and the most I paid for a hotel on my Bali trip.
I normally budget my travels on a backpackers budget but it was my dream to stay here so I had to do it and I managed to get enough money together for a one night stay.
When I arrived at check-in I was greeted with some lovely little snacks and some drinks while I waited. I was then taken down on the lift which was amazing as it gave great views of the resort.
So once in my villa, I took awhile just chilling and taking loads of photos and just relaxing in all its splendour.
After chilling for a bit in the villa I headed down to the most spectacular infinity pool I’ve ever laid eyes on. And of course, I took a load of photos, who could not? But after my photo session, I enjoyed the sun, cocktails, and views of the jungle.
The Hanging Gardens offered a complimentary afternoon tea with your stay which is a lovely gesture. The afternoon tea offers you traditional Balinese teas, coffees and little sweet treats. It was a good take on the old English afternoon tea.
Dinner at the resort was, of course, everything you would expect from a 7-star resort. I was seated on a table overlooking the jungle and the temple opposite the resort was lit with hundreds of candles. It just looks so beautiful and tranquil.
After dinner was time to enjoy some more drink on the veranda before heading up to bed.
The next morning I awoke early to enjoy some coffee on the terrace. The feeling of the jungle just waking up was such a beautiful and mystical experience. I even got a spot of blogging done.
I then headed down to a buffet breakfast which is included in the stay. This was by miles the best breakfast I’ve ever had at a hotel. You get a choice of cold meats, cheeses, fruits, cereal, juices and anything else you can imagine having for breakfast. You can also order a cooked breakfast like scrambled egg & omelettes which are made to order. But this isn’t limited to one per person and you can order another plate if you wish. I only stuck to the one as I had stuffed myself on the buffet.
The remainder of my stay wall all about taking the liberty to enjoy my private infinity pool and chilling out on the terrace with my villa. You will want to make the most of this is because you just won’t stay in the villas like this often.
I can not say enough how incredible my stay was here. The staff are so so friendly, the food is amazing and the resort, there are no words to describe its beauty.
I never ever wanted to leave and I would go back there in a heartbeat. I don’t normally say I’d stay somewhere again but for the Hanging Gardens of Bali, I would stay for months and months if I could. It was the most incredible and my biggest highlight of my Indonesian travels. My words and my photo just cannot do this hotel justice
