Indonesian art and local handmade fabrics decorate the 42 spacious villas and 18 suites of this property, just outside of Ubud. The sliding teak louvered doors, the ceiling fans, and canopy-draped beds all seem very traditional—so it's quite a shock to approach the looming, ultramodern main building, which looks more like a spaceship that's landed on the hillside than a hotel lobby. With reflecting rooftop lotus pools and an open-air "floating bar" with gorgeous views of rice terraces and the Ayung River valley below, it's certainly a showstopper—but it seems markedly out of place in this jungle setting. Still, you'll easily get used to it once you venture inside to the spa and settle in for a Lulur Sayan treatment: a traditional Javanese beauty ritual employing herbal scrubs, a cooling yogurt splash, and Balinese massage. It's even more heavenly when enjoyed in one of the three private spa villas overlooking peaceful gardens.

From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
A dramatic teak bridge over a gorge leads to the main building, which suggests a cylindrical treehouse. "With surprises like a small temple, exploring this property is an adventure." Balinese-inspired villas have plunge pools, and outdoor living rooms provide the experience of "being in the jungle." Jati Bar has a 180-degree view of the Ayung River Valley. The spa menu lists spice baths and herbal body scrubs.
