Banyan Tree opens a very special luxury resort in Ubud on Bali in September: The Buahan is the first house of the new brand “Banyan Tree Escape” and will be completely without walls, doors and windows – in the public areas as well as in the only 16 villas. The property was designed by local architect Gede Kresna, who focuses entirely on Balinese design and environmentally friendly architecture.
Buahan is located in a secluded area in the north of Ubud – surrounded by rice fields, jungle, the Ayung River and a waterfall. The 125-square-metre villas combine spacious living areas with 180-degree panoramic views and are all equipped with private pools. Only a thin mosquito net separates guests from nature while they sleep.
Villa prices from EUR 632 per night
At the heart of the new Banyan Tree in Ubud are the kitchen and living room – open-plan dining and lounge areas where guests can enjoy Buahan’s zero-waste farm-to-table concept. 70 percent of the ingredients are plant-based and sourced from local farmers no more than an hour’s drive away.
Locally grown ingredients and botanicals are also incorporated into the drinks at the Botanist Bar, while the Toja Spa celebrates the wellness traditions of the nearby village of Buahan with a unique garden experience. With the opening special, the most affordable villa can be booked until the end of December 2021 for the equivalent of EUR 632 to 704 per night (plus 21 percent taxes and fees).
