Warning: the following information will make you want to permanently move to Bali, Indonesia.
The name of the hotel alone, Hanging Gardens of Bali, makes it sound like a place we want to be right now, but the destination itself more than lives up to your imagination. The breathtaking boutique hotel in the town of Ubud is the first of its kind to receive seven-star recognition, and it absolutely looks like it earned each star.
The property opened in 2005 with a concept of wanting to be immersed in its natural tropical environment. Guests experience that exactly, as the jungle completely surrounds the villas. As a seven-star resort, it's obviously not cheap, but neither is it as expensive as many rival resorts with similar amenities. Rates begin at around £350 for the Riverside Villa, which features a private infinity pool, a poolside gazebo, a terrazo bath, and more.
Built on a 45-degree angle, the award-winning hotel is also known for its twin-tiered cascading pool. In fact, it's even previously earned the title of "World's Best Swimming Pool" by TripAdvisor and Condé Nast Traveler, according to the site. Not only is the infinity pool stunning (and totally Instagram-worthy), but it also overlooks lush rain forests, making you feel like you're completely remote.
