Four Seasons Resort Sayan encapsulates Bali at its philosophical and soulful best: a sublime hillside haven where man, humanity and nature unite with purest intent. Only a ten-minute drive from the stylish boutiques, artist ateliers and atmospheric eateries of boho-chic Ubud, Four Seasons Sayan is an inspiring base from which to explore Bali's cultural heart or to retreat into nature's meditative embrace.
Arrive via a dramatic bridge, beneath which the Ayung River valley spreads its tropical arms. Descend from the gravity-defying rooftop lotus pond to the two-tiered swimming pool, cantilevered over the river, through an enchanting forest that cocoons just 60 suites and villas. Choose from secluded treetop accommodations or riverside sanctuaries – all ultra-comfortable and authentically Balinese, furnished with traditional ikat fabrics, antique furnishings and Indonesian artefacts.
Retreat to The Sacred River Spa and discover the power and presence of your own life force. Restore the subtle inner energies with Chakra Ceremonies and river stone massages. Release technology-induced stresses with yoga and meditation in the lotus petal Dharma Shanti Bale. And explore the higher levels of wellbeing with Resident Wellness Mentors and Healing Arts Practitioners.
Trek inland to the villages at the heart of the local community. Savour the simplicity of rice planting with local farmers. Dine on elaborate home-style Indonesian ‘Rijsttafel’ at Ayung Terrace or revel in the romance of a stargazing dinner, high above the valley. Whether you choose to immerse and explore, or retreat and simply 'be’, prepare to submit body and mind to Sayan’s soulful soothing – and fall back in love with life and living.
