The Naked Experience

With its no walls and no doors concept, Buahan, a Banyan Tree Escape invites guests to reconnect with nature.

Situated only 30 minutes away from Ubud, Buahan, a Banyan Tree Escape embodies the group’s vision and commitment to creating immersive experiences by combining deep nature and sustainable design. Pioneering a “no walls, no doors” concept throughout the property and in each of its 16 balés, the adults-only resort is an invitation into a different way of being.

Located on an off-the-beaten-track in Buahan Kaja Village, the resort maximises exposure to nature through design and services, creating a place where guests, 18 years old and above, can connect to disconnect. Reinventing the basics of food, sleep and in-resort interaction, the brand aims to bring guests on a rewilding renewal through immersion in nature. Distinct indoor/outdoor living offers a sanctuary for urban detox, self-introspection and emotional awareness in privacy.

The heart of the resort is the Open Kitchen and Living Room, both open dining and lounge spaces created to evoke a sense of community. Here, guests are invited to learn about the resort’s unique zero-waste farm-to-table concept, local sourcing philosophy and heritage techniques, and the celebration of authentic local cuisine and cultures. The Botanist Bar is centred around the use of local-grown natural ingredients and botanicals infused into its beverages. The menu concept, 70 percent of which is plant-based, is sourced locally within a one-hour drive from the property.

Offering treatment for mind, body and soul, Toja Spa celebrates the wellbeing traditions of Buahan village and its surrounding areas, with a unique “open” garden experience – certified by the award-winning Banyan Tree Spa Academy. It offers spiritual and active wellness involving local Balinese healers and a specialist, enhancing the spa experience through a local tradition and wellbeing philosophy.

Scattered on and off the property, secret Hideaway Spots draw on the element of being at one with nature, providing guests with a garden sanctuary for meditation, reading, or simply taking a moment to pause and unwind.

A calendar of daily, weekly, and monthly events guides travellers towards a range of curated and self-led experiences around the three pillars connecting to nature, a discovery experience, and community integration. From the on and off-site daily ‘Happenings’ activities to collaborative events with visiting practitioners or local cultural festivities, the ethos of unique, rejuvenating and spontaneous opportunities for discovery hold firm and is a core of the brand experience.
