Distinctive villas with imaginative features
Balinese architecture offers a balance between the human, the natural, and the supernatural—an aesthetic that extends to gardens. The landscaping that graces the villas of HOSHINOYA Bali is designed to organically link the pools in the resort to the surrounding jungle, while evoking the sacred waters of the nearby Pakerisan.
In a tropical climate such as Bali, it is important for architecture to facilitate flow. At HOSHINOYA Bali, every villa features a gazebo with a roof made of alang-alang, a sacred grass. The thick shade provided by these gazebos—in addition to the soothing breeze that comes in from the Pakerisan—allows guests to cool off at any time of the day.
Scenes from nature
Artists from around the world flock to Ubud, an area famous for traditional Balinese painting, sculpture, music, and dance. The carvings that adorn the cool, smooth walls of the resort have been handcrafted by seasoned artists; each carving is a singular work of art. They depict local plants and animals in ways that emphasize the importance of harmony between humans and nature.
