If you’re looking for a boutique hotel within the tranquil town of Ubud, Bali then look no further than Bisma Eight. Still within its first year of operation the hotel is a feast for your senses.
Our welcome began with cool face towels and a refreshing lemon and cucumber soda. We were then presented with a Balinese offering which we placed on the hotel’s shrine. This was such a nice and authentic touch to begin our stay at Bisma Eight.
Our stylish canopy suite was modern and luxurious whilst incorporating the traditional charms of a Balinese hotel.
Floor to ceiling windows on both sides of the room let in the natural night and provided a feeling of sleeping within the trees. The lounge area opened up to a generous sized balcony where I enjoyed my coffee each morning. The bedroom could be screened off from the lounge thanks to wooden crisscross sliding doors.
Set in the middle of the room, our king sized bed had a workstation built into the bed head. Two closets along with a safe, robes and pool bag were available for use. To not disturb the beauty of the rooms interior design, the air conditioning units have been creatively placed behind a wooden feature panel. Perhaps it’s because Bisma Eight is a brand new hotel, but we found the air conditioning here to work exceptionally well and at night we probably could’ve just done with using the overhead fan.
All rooms at the Bisma Eight offer the onsen style cedar wood Japanese soaking tubs. These unique tubs certainly heightened our in room experience. It was lovely to relax in the warm water with the provided bath salts.
The hotels infinity pool has amazing views over the jungle. It’s a romantic spot to watch the sun go down and enjoy a cocktail.
Sun lounges or covered day beds are available for guest use. The pool was beautiful, one of the best we’ve encountered on our travels. Bisma Eight have fantastic views and the pool enhances the Ubud experience.
If you like to keep your fitness going while on holiday the hotel offers a gym. I was very impressed with the fresh fruit on offer to enjoy post workout. Guests can also take part in a daily yoga class which you can read more about here along with other activities that you can get involved in at the hotel. Bisma Eight is home to Copper Kitchen and Bar. Even if you aren’t able to stay at the hotel I would highly recommend a visit to this incredible restaurant. We were lucky enough to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner here during our stay. You can read more about that experience here. But I’ve added a photo to get your taste buds excited.
Bisma Eight also offers a garden and forest suite. Set below the canopy rooms the garden suites offer a private garden area rather than a balcony. The forest suites are located underneath the pool area and their views look out over the jungle of Ubud. Located just a 15 minute walk out of town, Bisma Eight provides a complimentary shuttle in and out a few times a day. There’s also free bicycles available so guests can explore the town and rice paddies at their own leisure. The shuttle service really gives guests the ability to stay out of the action whilst still being able to easily access it.
I would highly recommend Bisma Eight for couples looking for a romantic getaway in Ubud. Thankfully we have visited the area several times before so we didn’t even leave the hotel for our two night stay to give you an indication of how much we liked it. There was thought put into everything regarding the design and the experience.
