Tucked into a picturesque valley, with five hectares of tropical gardens and an enchanting riverside setting to lose yourself in, Permata Ayung Private Estate is a deliciously exclusive hideaway that you probably won’t want to leave. But if you are curious to explore, start by crossing the river via the swinging bridge and hike the terraced rice fields to discover a very traditional side of Bali. Or take a walk in the village of Bongkasa, right outside the gates, home to many of the staff members. Bali Swing is just four kilometres from the Estate and makes for a memorable experience and sensational IG posts. Meanwhile Ubud, with its temples, museums and palaces, as well as boutiques and restaurants is only eight kilometres away, easily reached with the Estate’s car and driver (extra charge).
