A stone’s throw from Canggu and its surfing beaches, Nirjhara opened its doors last January in Bali. Inspired by the architecture of Balinese villages, the hotel brings together 25 perched villas, scattered through the rice fields, on the banks of the river, or immersed in the dense vegetation.
Nirjhara, a new hotel to settle in Bali
Concerned about the environment, the place is designed from natural materials, including recycled wood and locally sourced bamboo. Sourcing mainly from the vegetable garden and surrounding farms, the chef and his team are fervent about sustainability. Even the use of plastic is prohibited.
The star of the resort is The Retreat, which is more of a Zen sanctuary than a spa. The treatments and massages are sourced with natural products derived from the plants of the island. Under the direction of healers inspired by the Melasti tradition, guests can also experience a purification ritual specific to Hindu culture. A little further down the property facing a waterfall is a yoga pavilion that offers classes from sunrise to sunset.
Another highlight of the property is the Ambu restaurant, which celebrates the best of Indonesian cuisine. The menu features a host of local specialties combined with many global culinary influences.
Cherry on top? The private cinema where you can watch classic films in the evening and an array of beautiful beaches where you can brave the waves.
