Overview of The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat_Hi Res

The Banjaran Hotel Hotspring Retreat

Nestled amidst a 16 acre valley, cradled by 260 million-year old towering Paleozoic limestone hills, lush green rainforest, not to mention the rejuvenating geothermal hot springs, natural caves and cascading waterfalls, to say the scenery and location at The Banjaran is spectacular is a total understatement. You’d be forgiven for thinking you’d just arrived on the set of Jurassic Park the movie, minus the dinosaurs of course!.

The landscape at The Banjaran is unlike any other place I ‘ve ever been to. The minute I arrived the warm humid air and incredible surroundings sent me straight into relax mode. The only thing you want to do is disconnect your phone, jump into the hot spring and emmerse yourself into this wonderful natural environment.

The villas are beautifully decorated in a classic Lombok style, with dark wood furnishings and indigenous tapestries and art work. Not only does each villa come with it’s own outdoor living area and hot tub but you also get your own private pool!

From hot yoga in the caves, indulgent massage treatments at the idyllic spa and delicious healthy food at the restaurant, everything about The Banjaran is geared up to you forgetting about the stresses of everyday life. Having daily massages, yoga classes, meditative jungle walks and of course a dip in the natural hot springs, I left the retreat feeling blissfully pampered and rejuvenated. I’m planning my next trip as we speak!
