Nestled among verdant rice paddies and lush forests, Hoshinoya Resort was designed to blend seamlessly into its surroundings in a sort of modern-minimalist Japanese aesthetic, with traditional thatched-roof villas featuring private plunge pools and outdoor bathtubs overlooking the jungle. Because of the way some of the villas are perched in the trees, one of the unique features of Hoshinoya Resort is its funicular system, which takes guests through the property and its lush jungle. The funicular consists of two small cable cars that run on tracks up and down the steep hillside, offering stunning views of the surrounding rice paddies and forests. The ride lasts for about 10 minutes and takes guests from the lobby area to the upper part of the resort where some of the villas are located.

Hoshinoya Resort is also committed to mindfulness and wellness. The resort offers daily yoga classes led by experienced instructors who guide guests through a series of poses designed to improve flexibility, strength, and balance. Afterward, you can indulge in a massage or spa treatment inspired by ancient Balinese healing traditions. For those seeking adventure, Hoshinoya Resort offers guided hikes through the surrounding countryside, where you can explore hidden waterfalls and learn about local flora and fauna. You can also take part in traditional Balinese ceremonies such as blessings or offerings at the resort’s own temple.

But perhaps the most memorable aspect of a stay at Hoshinoya is the sense of peace and tranquility that permeates every corner of the resort. Whether you’re lounging on your villa’s terrace listening to the sounds of nature or meditating in one of the resort’s serene gardens, you’ll feel a deep connection to Bali’s spiritual essence.

Depending on the season and accommodation, rooms start at $472 per night and can cost at least as much as $708 per night.
