Full accommodation information

With uninterrupted views of rugged mountains, and the sound of Ayung River’s steady trickle, the stress of life will melt away in an instant here. Enjoy a soothing sensory experience from a choice of 16 villas, each with incredible views, Bali-style interiors and luxury amenities. Designed so that the indoors and outdoors exist as one, Bali’s calming spirit flows through each of the villas, from the living room to the open deck overlooking the jungle. There are also several ‘Hideaway Spots’ scattered across the resort, where you can relax in complete seclusion alone or with your loved one for a romantic moment.

Fill your days with rejuvenating experiences, whether it’s expert-led, personalised yoga sessions, massage therapy at the spa, foraging, or exploring the jungle along a scenic hiking trail. You can also venture further afield to enjoy some activities beyond the resort, including cycling along 20km of jungle trails or following the curves of the Ayung River by boat. Every activity can be tailor-made to suit your interests and to help you connect with the local community.

In the evenings, enjoy locally-sourced cuisine at the immersive Open Kitchen, where you can watch each dish come to life in front of your eyes. Follow this with a delicious cocktail at the Botanist Bar, created from the fine herbs of the resort’s very own garden.

Buahan, A Banyan Tree Escape offers 16 villas overlooking Bali’s seven peaks. Each villa includes a luxury king-size bed, a living area, an openpool deck with sunbeds and a gazebo with day bed mattresses. It’s the perfect setup for a peaceful hideaway.
