From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

Recent years have seen the opening in Bali of several small resorts comprising Indonesian farmhouses relocated to quiet settings, yet none of them has quite the panache of this choice collection assembled by Canadian jewelry magnate John Hardy and his wife, Cynthia. The four hand-carved wooden houses transported from Java, each more than 100 years old, are set amid rice fields on the Sayan Ridge, an ethereal Eden near Ubud. The furnishings are a harmonious blend of exquisite pieces the Hardys have collected on their journeys: deep-dyed handloomed rugs from Tibet, massive teak cupboards from Java, graceful baskets from Borneo, rawhide benches from Ethiopia. The unpretentious dinner service is simply the best Balinese cooking to be found at an international hotel here. Adventure and cultural activities are well organized, and traditional Balinese massage can be scheduled in rooms. Caveat: A key element of the charm of antique Java houses is their rough-hewn construction, with cracks and knotholes; as a result, the passing conversations of people outside are clearly audible in the room. Not recommended for honeymooners.

—2008 Hot List
