“Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it, we go nowhere.” It’s not enough to live on to your imagination only. We all deserve a life-changing treat.

Ubud is always a charm to everyone. It is filled with wonder and inquisition as to how such serenity prevailed on Mother Earth. The fact that Ubud is such a touristy area doesn’t mean that there’s no place left for travellers to discover the true friendliness of the local people and their tenacity to preserve Balinese traditions.

Also well known as a flourishing crafts centre, here you can expect to find hundreds of shops selling high-quality antiques, woodcarvings, crafts, textiles, paintings and jewellery. Seamlessly lined along the main street are dozens of art studios, an excellent local craft market and galleries.

With everything from sumptuous vegan eats, and cleanses, to every type of yoga and healing imaginable, Ubud is where Western spirituality and Balinese traditions live in harmony. That being said, for those coming for relaxation and/or rejuvenation, Ubud may very well be the most enchanted holiday of your life.

When you are on holiday, choosing the apt resort becomes inevitable. Nandini Jungle by Hanging Gardens is a new alternative accommodation for those who want to have the experience of staying in the middle of a rural settlement. With villas exuberating luxury and elegance, this resort is a sanctuary of peacefulness and sophistication in the culturally exciting village of Ubud.

The property has recently announced the grand opening of the largest suite in Bali. This exclusive 500-square-meter suite sets a new standard for luxury accommodation in the region. Offering unparalleled opulence, the suite features a range of extravagant amenities, including personalised butler service, ensuring every need is met with the highest standard of hospitality. Guests will enjoy the indulgence of a private Jacuzzi, perfect for serene relaxation amidst the natural beauty of Bali. They also provide in-suite personal bartender service, providing bespoke beverages tailored to guests’ preferences. Nandini’s award-winning bartender & mixologist will bring all the necessary ingredients to your suite and compose your choice of signature cocktails right in front of you.

As soon as you waltz on the pathway to the suite, the very first thing you will discover is the spacious garden. At this point, you can imagine yourself doing yoga sessions or having an in-room spa treatment.

Inside the suite, discover a fancy bedroom fitted with quality amenities. All the designs featured are a real feast for your eyes and the environment – a real definition of luxury meets tranquillity. The suite’s vast space is complemented by elegant décor, embodying the essence of Balinese aesthetics with a modern twist. All the collection conjured the place in the essence of simplicity, purity and harmony.

Sunrise is the main course! As you wake up in the morning, go to the garden to capture the first light of dawn gently breaking. The sun, a mere silhouette behind the mist, sends tentative rays through the fog, casting an otherworldly glow on everything it touches. Trees stand as sentinels, their branches adorned with delicate droplets of dew that glisten like scattered jewels. While the birdsong cuts through the quietude, a melodic prelude to the unfolding day, gives the impression that the countryside is awakening from a dream.

It is tantalizing, tranquil, almost a bit of magic. It is a place to deepen connections, share in something incredible and walk away with the perfume of paradise still on your skin.
