In the spirit of Europe’s grand mountain resorts and spa retreats, Saranam Resort has a tone of old world glamour. Soaring above the incredible views in the lush hills of Bedugul, Saranam delivers dreamy views and is a place to take a breather and enjoy nature at its finest.
With a choice of luxury suites, deluxe suites or hilltop chalets, every room is beautifully appointed with wide verandahs that overlook the grounds that cascade down the hill, mirroring the surrounding rice terraces.
While the temptation is to just relax and enjoy the scenery beside its riverside pool there is also a fitness centre, an elevated yoga and meditation room, spa plus a dining room and poolside café. Bedugul itself has a lot to offer the curious traveller and even the adventurous.
The half-day trip to the Ulan Danu Temple on Lake Beratan is well worth taking. The ancient Hindu temple sits on the lake surrounded by mountains and colourful ceremonies are common. Check out the growers market where the aroma of heady spices fills the air and fresh fruit and vegetables are piled high.
Bedugul is home to Bali’s Botanical gardens, with orchid gardens, a cactus forest and the popular Treetops Adventure Park, where everyone becomes a kid again flying from tree to tree on zip lines. The kiddy friendly ‘squirrel’ run is just a metre off the ground while the adrenaline-packed SAS style Black circuit is not for the feint hearted.
Bali Handara Golf Course is jaw-droppingly beautiful and a challenging course for lovers of the game. Lakes, farms, mountains and rice fields surround Bedugul, it’s a truly beautiful part of Bali and leaving the resort is not easy as the crisp mountain air and luxury triggers a yogic calm.
The area is home to some of Bali’s most breathtaking wonders. Spend your days at the Gitgit Waterfall, Buyan and Tamblingan Lake – sister lakes surrounded by coffee and clove plantations and the Banjar hot springs.
Solo traveller options available – experience a wellness retreat with your own room and double the massages listed below with no additional surcharge.
