Bali At Sayan
Four Seasons Resort
The tiny Balinese village, Sayan, sits on a ridge along the Ayung River, surrounded by lush jungles and rice paddies. Four Seasons Resort Bali retreat rises above the canopies in a dreamy environment. Unsurprisingly, it's the only hotel in Bali to make the 2020 Condé Nast Gold List.
The 60 spacious villas and suites are scattered around the large property offering spectacular rice terraces and tropical jungle views. Evident traditional Balinese craftmanship touches are present throughout the interiors mixed with contemporary luxury like the grand marble bathrooms. Nevertheless, this tropical luxury setting has an unquestionably unique atmosphere owing to the Balinese styling.
Sayan is only a short drive away from the culturally vibrant Ubud, and there is daily free transport until 5 PM. So be sure to finish with your yoga class in time! The resort also organizes trips with knowledgeable guides to magical places off the beaten track avoiding the tourist crowds.
