Hidden away in the southern foothills of Bali, just a short 10-minute drive from Ubud city center, Bhanuswari Resort & Spa gives new meaning to the word “tranquility”. The breath-taking beauty of terraced rice fields, towering coconut trees, natural spring-fed streams and luscious flowering gardens envelop this perfectly secluded sanctuary of peace.
From the Balinese architects who designed the resort, to the local builders having constructed it and the Balinese staff and management continuing to operate it, Bhanuswari remains an authentic and genuinely Balinese resort. Even the resort’s furnishings are made from local coconut wood, and the artworks featured throughout the resort’s rooms and villas, have been created by local artists and craftspeople.
Known as a center for spiritual awakenings, creative inspiration and restorative healing, Ubud has long been visited by travelers the world over, in search of calm and serenity. Bhanuswari embodies the essence of this Ubud tradition, providing guests a much needed escape from the everyday; a place of stillness and solitude, where they may once again regain their sense of inner balance, and find greater peace of mind.
Bhanuswari is perfect for large family or corporate/organizational get-a-ways, offering discounted group rates with advanced booking.
The eco-friendly concept for the Bhanuswari goes far beyond that of other, more traditional hotels. In 1997, before people began talking about “sustainable tourism”, I Nyoman Suweta, managing director of the resort and Tengkulak village leader, began planning how to do it.
His dream was to create a boutique resort and spa that would provide jobs for the people of his village. Many of the young villagers were gaining an education for the hotel and restaurant business, but after graduating and beginning their search for work, they were faced with the choice of long commutes or moving to the city. Suweta sought to allow these villagers to prosper while living at home, enabling them to maintain the traditional Balinese culture in their extended families.
To further increase the eco-friendliness of the resort, Suweta ensured furnishings in the guest rooms were produced locally from nearby coconut trees, a sustainable resource. Local craftspeople and artists were then commissioned to produce all of the artwork decoratively featured throughout the resort. Guests are encouraged to visit local artist’s studios where they can select similar artwork or even commission an original piece in support of the local artist community.
Bhanuswari staff will be happy to arrange for the crating and shipping of any artwork guests are unable to fit into their luggage.
Bhanuswari Resort & Spa offers on-site lessons highlighting Balinese culture and arts, including wood carving, painting, batik fabric making, music, dance, and Hindu prayer offerings.
The location provides an ideal environment for a variety of workshops including those pertaining to self-improvement and professional-development. Bhanuswari is an ideal location to host seminars led by international experts in the fields of creative writing, interpersonal communications, innovative learning methods, and other important contemporary areas of interest.
For visitors of Ubud seeking “experiential travel” rather than a simple tourist vacation, they will find Bhanuswari offers an insightful experience of the arts, crafts and culture of the Balinese people. The resort and the dedicated staff at Bhanuswari provide a true sense of Balinese tradition. You’ll enjoy the creature.
