Bali is known as the ‘Island of the Gods’ for its ceremonial traditions and sacred temples, but for the modern nomad it also offers some serious luxury. And there’s no place to take it all in quite like Ubud, which seduces with a rich culture, natural beauty and a unique charm. Bisma Eight is taking luxe to the next level here, with a boutique ‘tropical modern’ style that beckons those with a penchant for peace without forsaking heady indulgence.
Bisma Eight has been designed to blend into the surrounding nature, and serve as a base to explore the very best of the unique Ubud experience. Influenced by both local and international aesthetics, their spacious suites invoke the exotic, with handcrafted Japanese-inspired soaking tubs, a large living area, and nods to Balinese art and architecture.
The resort’s ten Canopy Suites feature shady private balconies with bamboo railings and cascading ivy, or you can retreat to your own Forest Suite, designed like a modern-day treehouse, with sweeping panoramas of the verdant jungles of Ubud.
Although Bisma Eight offers some extraordinary experiences for guests who want to immerse in the local culture and nature, there’s also very little reason to leave the resort. An infinity pool delicately balanced over lush central Bali jungle begs you to linger longer from afternoon through to evening. And for gourmands, the flavours found in Copper Kitchen & Bar begin at the Rooftop Garden – the resort has its own grown organic farm, and encourages guests to pick their own vegetables and sit back while the Bisma Eight chefs prepare a meal using the freshest ingredients, grown just steps away from your table.
It’s an intoxicating mix of escape and indulgence. Ubud is beckoning us back again, and Bisma Eight is the destination of choice.
