Banyan Tree Escape, the new brand extension of the Banyan Tree hospitality group is set to make its debut in Ubud in Bali.
Scheduled to open in September 2021, Buahan, a Banyan Tree Escape is located close to nature, next to the Ayung River and waterfall, offering sweeping vistas of the seven majestic peaks.
The resort will feature 16 balés (villas) designed to blend spacious indoor-outdoor living areas with 180-degree panoramic views.
Buahan, a Banyan Tree Escape will feature its signature “no walls, no doors” experience concept.
The Botanist Bar will have an interesting menu concept. Seventy per cent of the menu will be plant-based, locally sourced within a one-hour drive from the property.
Guests can indulge in well-being activities at Toja Spa. The spa will also offer a unique “open” garden experience – certified by the award-winning Banyan Tree Spa Academy.
The property has been designed by Gede Kresna, a well-known sustainable local architect who focuses on Balinese design and environmentally friendly architecture.
Ho Ren Yung, vice president of brand HQ of Banyan Tree said:
“We have owned this piece of land for over twenty years, and the conceptualisation of Banyan Tree Escape started almost five years ago. It is a true labour of love and a bold experience proposition we are excited to see become real.
“Even while we are calling it Escape, at the heart of this brand is creating a way for people to be present, to unearth, renew, and a way to truly ‘be here.’ Fireflies in your room at night, and morning mists with the sunrise – it is an unparalleled journey, communing with nature, alone and with others.”
