Escape to deep within Bali’s cultural heart in the island’s central highlands and you will discover the luxurious Four Seasons Sayan. Set in a lush paradise beside the Ayung River, and moments away from Ubud, this retreat offers second-to-none in ultra-private accommodation.
The 18 spacious suites and 42 private villas all reflect the island’s natural and serene beauty. Each suite and villa is a mix of contemporary and Balinese decor, including rich teak furnishings and exotic hand-loomed fabrics. The suites offer tranquillity and exceptional comfort with a spacious living room opening to an outdoor terrace and a luxurious king bedroom. The private villas, accommodating one or two bedrooms are the epitome of luxury living. With your own lily pond and meditation area, these villas are extremely spacious and offer the highest level of comfort.
This family friendly resort has many activities on offer for all the family. The Pici Pici (“little snail” in Balinese) Club offers fun and discovery for children aged from 5 to 12 years. Creative and culturally enriching, the programme is divided into sports, adventure based games, creative play and arts and crafts. The lucky children get to hang out in the bright and colourful play centre and the Rice Barn Tree House which is tucked into its own jungle wonderland as they immerse themselves into activities such as learning Balinese dance classes, palm leaf folding classes, relaxing with books and board games.
There are some wonderful activities on offer at Four Seasons Sayan which really enable you to get under the skin of the local life in the area. Enjoy a cooking class with the chef who will help you to discover the art of Balinese cooking and an understanding of the ingredients used. Take part in a special 6 hour programme of traditional rural lifestyle that will give you a true insight into a day in the life of a Balinese farmer. For those who wish to switch off and relax, there is nowhere better than surrounded by the soothing sounds of the Ayung River in the two level swimming pool. Enjoy time relaxing at this oasis which has been designed to follow the river’s natural contours before sampling some of the delicious cuisine at the Riverside Cafe. Alternatively, the Four Seasons Spa offers some wonderfully pampering signature treatments which are based on authentic, age-old Balinese traditions.
