The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah

Hidden among the lush undulating hills of Bali’s culture-rich highlands, this most private of resorts sits among thriving rice fields as far as the eye can see. Just outside the artists’ village of Ubud, the former estate of Hendra Hadiprana, one of Indonesia’s most respected art collectors has been transformed into an intimate retreat with twenty individual villas, each one uniquely featuring original Balinese artworks from his collection.

The rustic chic five-hectare property offers an authentic backdrop to one of Bali’s most dramatic performances, the Kecak dance – performed at the resort’s very own amphitheater. Those seeking serenity and rejuvenation will find both in abundance at The Spa, nestled at one edge of the seemingly endless paddy fields.

Experience breathtaking sunrises over Mount Agung – Bali’s highest and holiest mountain – and enjoy a leisurely stroll by the estate’s lotus pond, home to a family of white Dutch and black Australian swans.

The Hadiprana Villa
Tanah Gajah’s founder and owner, Hendra Hadiprana originally built this one-of-a-kind two-bedroom estate as the master accommodations for him and his wife. With 550 square meters of sprawling space, it features some of the finest paintings, antiques and artifacts from his vast private collection.

Queen beds and separate open bathrooms make both bedrooms feel like a master suite while the spacious living and dining area are perfect for hosting intimate dinner parties. Outside, amidst the resort’s lush tropical gardens, sits a semi-private, 10-meter long swimming pool for your private use.

Things To Do

Every area of Bali deserves a visit, but travelers tight on time should still explore beyond Ubud. Take the scenic drive up to the cooler climate of Kintamani for a boat ride on Batur Lake, the largest lake in Bali – it sits inside the crater of Mount Batur, alongside a still-active volcano. 

Cross the lake by boat to Trunyan village, where Bali Aga people, the island’s original inhabitants live. Or head east to climb Mount Agung, Bali’s highest peak and see, along its slopes, the multi-tiered 14th century Pura Besakih mother temple. Stop by the mountain village of Tenganan, known for its unique double ikat weaving and smoked grass woven baskets, before heading back to your rice paddy retreat.
