Bali is the morning of the world. So once proclaimed Jawaharlal Nehru, the late, great prime minster of India, upon first witnessing the beauty of a Balinese sunrise.
Tejaprana Resort & Spa is a place where one can witness this beauty in all its glory. Nestled in the lush rain forest of the Petanu river valley, all its villas face east allowing guests to start their day basking in the warmth of the morning sun as it breaks the valley treetop.
Tejaprana comprises 14 Valley View villas at the very edge of the resort directly overlooking the river valley beneath and affording guests the most privacy, 12 Terrace View villas and 2 Two-bedroom villas with a spacious living cum dining room for families that need more space.
Each villa is complemented with a gazebo, an infinity plunge pool and an outdoor natural stone bathtub (except the two-bedroom villas) bringing you closer to the Balinese landscape embracing the resort. The villa interior is purposely kept elegantly simple so it will not to distract you from the outdoor scenery.
Tejaprana Resort & Spa is located a mere 4 kilometers from the lively cultural center of Ubud and on the main road to the iconic terraced rice fields of Tegallalang. Yet it is worlds away once you’re there – an oasis of peace and tranquility.
The resort is designed to slowly reveal itself. As you enter the driveway, the first and only thing you’ll notice is the tip of the roof of the restaurant with its intriguing UFO-like skylight. Further along, one starts to get glimpses of the resort through the grid windows of its lounge. Arriving at the lobby, you are lead through a corridor providing a framed view of the valley at its far end. Only once you’ve reached the end of this corridor are you presented with a breathtaking 180-degree view of Tejaprana Resort & Spa and the embracing natural scenery of the river valley.
Walking along the corridor you are introduced to the various facilities of the resort. In Oja Lounge one can enjoy a drink, read a good book and, maybe, play a board game or two in a pleasant air-conditioned environment.It’s multi-paneled windowswas inspired by the Composition paintings of Piet Mondrian.
