Banyan Tree to open ‘No Walls, No Doors’ resort in Bali, Indonesia – Hospitality Net
Banyan Tree will open a very special property in an unspoiled and off the beaten path part of northern Ubud later this year.
Pioneer of a “ no walls, no doors ” concept throughout the property and in each of its 16 balés (villas), Buahan, a Banyan Tree Escape, is expected to open in September 2021.
Located in a tranquil enclave surrounded by rice fields and jungle, the site’s unique topography is next to the Ayung River and the waterfall, including stunning views of the Seven Majestic Peaks.
The resort has 16 balas, designed to blend spacious indoor and outdoor living spaces with 180 degree panoramic views and sounds of nature through a daring taste of ‘The Naked Experience’ where only a thin veil separates nature customers.
Scattered on and off the property, the Hideaway Spots take advantage of the element of being at one with nature, providing guests with a garden sanctuary for meditation, reading or just taking a moment to take a break and relax.
At the heart of the resort is the open plan kitchen and living room, both open to the dining room and living room, created to evoke a sense of community where guests can learn how the resort’s zero waste farm-to-table concept , the philosophy of local procurement and heritage techniques. Seventy percent of the menu concept is plant-based, sourced from the area within an hour’s drive of the property.
The Botanist Bar focuses on the use of locally grown natural ingredients and infused plants in its drinks, while Toja Spa celebrates the wellness traditions of Buahan village and its surroundings, with a “open” garden experience – certified by the award winning Banyan Tree Spa Academy.
