Hoshinoya, one of Japan’s oldest hospitality companies and leading luxury hotel brands, is opening its first property abroad. Set in the lush green hills of Ubud, Hoshinoya has designed private villas with traditional Balinese craftsmanship and Japanese minimalism in mind.
Design in Japan, made in Ubud, Hoshinoya makes the perfect base for discovering the experience of personal space and time for unparalleled luxury, food and service that convey the highest level of hospitality, all infused with the local culture and natural environment. Inspired by the villages of rice-terraced Ubud, the resort overlooks the Pakerisan River and has sacred water canal cascades.
The architecture includes intricate carvings decorating the furniture and walls – a showcase of the talent of local artists – and the café gazebo has been designed to blend in with the jungle it overlooks. Guests can relax on the comfortable sofas and enjoy views of the vivid green forest, perfect for meditation or for luxuriating in the Bali pace of life.
For the food, Hoshinoya relies on the local wisdom of Bali combined with Japanese culinary techniques. Fresh ingredients from the hills and the sea are used to make authentically Balinese cuisine. Guest are encouraged to enjoy their meals by their private pool areas, while café gazebos allow for alfresco dining overlooking the surrounding jungle. Wherever you decide to eat, you are guaranteed the best Balinese cuisine that Hoshinoya has to offer.
The resort also features a spa, providing guests with traditionally developed treatments using ancient wisdom and methods, designed to bring balance to mind and body, such as treatments that incorporate natural ingredients, poolside meditations, and morning and evening yoga sessions.
