Tanah Gajah a Resort by Hadipr (formerly chedi)
An intimate retreat in the heart of Ubud
What we think
Skylark only includes hotels that meet our stamp of approval. Our editorial review for this one isn’t ready yet — but we’re working on it! Below is the hotel’s own description.
Hidden among the lush undulating hills of Bali’s culture-rich highlands, this most private of Ubud hotels sits among thriving rice fields as far as the eye can see. Just outside the artists’ village of Ubud, the former estate of Hendra Hadiprana, one of Indonesia’s most respected art collectors has been transformed into an intimate luxury retreat with twenty individual villas, each one uniquely featuring original Balinese artworks from his collection.
The rustic chic five-hectare hotel in Ubud offers an authentic backdrop to one of Bali’s most dramatic performances, the Kecak dance – performed at the resort’s very own amphitheatre. Those seeking serenity and rejuvenation will find both in abundance at The Spa, nestled at one edge of the seemingly endless paddy fields. Experience breathtaking sunrises over Mount Agung – Bali’s highest and holiest mountain – and enjoy a leisurely stroll by the estate’s lotus pond, home to a family of white Dutch and black Australian swans.
Experience The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah, an indulgent luxury hotel, set in the heart of Ubud.
