Ubud Hanging Gardens

June 7, 2010 in Indonesia

Ok time to blog about the Bali trip! Went with TK, Ching and Keju.

The first night in Bali we stayed in this villa Julia Roberts was staying in when she was filming her latest movie Eat, Pray, Love (best selling book by Elizabeth Gilbert).


(Maybe i could still pick up some of the blonde hair she dropped in the villa?!?)

Ubud Hanging Gardens is said to be the best accommodation in Ubud. And having been to bali for 3 times, i don’t doubt that.

I don’t know how to tell you how exciting it was for me. I will just bombard you with 40 gorgeous pictures.


This is where it is located. It is quite impossible to find but once you found it, heaven  just unfold before your eyes.


Flowers at the reception.



Statue in front of each villa.


The resort has 38 luxury private pool villas. Each villa features heated infinity plunge pool (HEATED!!!!!!! I have never been to any heated pool in Tropical countries wtf!).

(Erm we will come to that later.)



Now why is it called the “hanging gardens”?

Take a look at this:


The resort is build almost vertically, and there’s this inclined “railway” thingie, with a lift that brings you to and fro between the reception, your villa and the restaurant/pools.


The lift thingie. It operates non-stop and i can’t imagine working as a lift operator. (Well at least this one has got break-taking views. In Japan, the pretty elevator girls are stuck with sweaty hentai old men FTL.)


Workers fixing or building new villas.



My room (will come to that later too)

Dress from thepoplook.com


Took the lift down to the restaurant for breakfast.


Cute cheese!


And visited the common pool area.



All angmohs sun tanning by the pool.


This is the first infinity pool by the restaurant. Can you imagine swimming here????

I have never been to a pool with this sort of view!!! Totally incredible!


The 2nd layer of the infinity pool. This one if you drop down, confirm bye bye.


(pool overlooking a beautiful temple)



Time to look at my room yes? 😀 😀 😀


View from my room.

With the HEATED POOL overlooking Ubud mountains and rice terrace.


Chill area next to the pool.


Infinity pool wtf!!!


Indoor bathtub


Nvm hor. Got outdoor bathtub too!




I looooove the bed! So romantic!


So awesome i feel like a Bali Princess wtf.


At night we ordered room service, and the villa sent this butler with a hugeee old school  dim sum box thing to our room.

It’s like a magic box wei, he took out plates, cutleries, placemats, napkins… food…


And set up with dinner table by your bedside!!!


We had foie gras & mushroom risotto.

I dunno if it was the ambience. But it was the most. freaking. delicious. risotto. ever.


How can i not be surprised! Best Risotto! In Bali! It sounds almost absurd. It’s worth every of the 200,000 rupiah wtf.


Close up pic with flash.


Was lying by the pool side. Feeding myself risotto and going “hmmmmmmmm” “hMmmMMMmmMmm” non stop thinking, this is the freaking life to live.

That’s all about the villa.

Anyway, if you visit Ubud next time, forget about the Bali Guling me (“wtf are you kidding me?” No i am not. It’s overrated.)


Try this instead. Naughty Nuris. I can’t remember where it is. But it’s famous! Just ask around!




Best. Pork. Ribs. Ever.

  22. Coco says:

    I like pic #21, #29 and #34. 😈

  23. I can’t agree more with the Naughty Nuri’s recommendation! Damn delicious pork ribs, a whole rack for less than RM30 each! It’s somewhere up north from Monkey Forest Road in Ubud, and taking a cab is compulsory.

  24. Junee says:

    maybe, if I’ll sell my soul to the devil, I could visit such a place too. T___T

  25. Katyi says:

    Do you have any exercises do be thin please ? Especially your legs are so thiiin *_*.

  26. Rojakgal says:

    I was in Ubud last month and too bad I didn’t know about Naughty Nuris then!
    But I had Babi Guling at Ibu Oka and I think it is nice. 😛

    Bali is indeed an awesome place with very nice resorts. I checked that Hanging Garden costs USD350/night!! 😳 Haha..it’s too expensive for 99% of the human population. I stayed in a USD70/night resort and I think it is ‘almost’ as nice. 😛 http://rojakgal.blogspot.com/2010/06/why-i-love-bali.html

    U r serious that the risotto costs 200,000 rupiah (like RM70)? *faint*

  27. David says:

  32. kelly says:

    must be expensive right ??

  33. whatever says:

    I’m posting my comment here because you disabled the comment function in your latest post. You know, the more I read your blog, the more I realize how bitchy you really are. One, one who might look ugly to you might not be so to others. Ever heard of the phrase ‘one’s trash is another’s treasure’? Who the hell are you to judge these people seriously? Whether or not the top models date these people for money is none of your business seriously. If you have the right to want to chase your dreams of holding down a stable job(or whatever it is you dream of in that shallow little head of yours), what is so wrong with what these girls are doing? Plus, one ugly parent does not guarantee an ugly offspring, don’t be stupid.

    • LSA says:

      I agree with whatever. If you want to consider looks to create an offspring, you should also consider other facts like intelligence. So, seeing you do not have a proper university degree and your IQ level is probably lower than 120, you should only be allowed to date unintelligent guys who is just like you, not much future to depend on brains.

      By the way, this is obviously an advert. It’s sickening.
