History & Story
In 1996, the multicultural Tran Tien family visited Tabanan from France and felt deeply moved by the beauty of the landscape. From this moment, the idea to create a truly sustainable hotel that nurtured its surrounds both environmentally and socially began to take shape. Almost 25 years later, Nirjhara was born with 25 suites and villas.
The owners launched Vela, their luxury sailing yacht and the extension of Nirjhara for the upcoming years.
Nirjhara is a brand-new build launched in January 2020.The villas are styled to exacting standards with clean lines, earth tones and decorative accents to extract the quintessence of Indonesian design while offering a fresh interpretation of tropical aesthetic. In each suite, Nirjhara has chosen to collaborate exclusively with local artisans from the archipelago to produce bespoke pieces that exhibit exceptional levels of craftmanship, as well as emerging artists to showcase and promote contemporary Indonesian art.

Main Strengths, Special Touch
Nirjhara is having their own natural waterfall in the resort area. Nirjhara was conceptualized as an extension of the local community and every effort has been made to minimize its impact on the environment. Besides the careful selection of materials used throughout the construction and furnishing of the property, such as upcycled wood cladding and locally sourced bamboo, Nirjhara has launched a variety of initiatives aimed at reducing its footprint on the ecosystem.
Located in the region of Tanah Lot, home to Bali’s most iconic temple, Nirjhara is a luxury resort in Bali offering tailored comfort in the midst of a lush jungle. Overlooking verdant rice fields and surrounded by a river and cascades, Nirjhara welcomes you to a haven of peace and relaxation. Days at Nirjhara are punctuated with activity and regeneration, catching surf breaks on Kedungu Beach, cycling through the traditional neighbouring villages, or pampering at our signature spa.
Surrounded by forests and rice paddies, Nirjhara is located a few minutes away from the picturesque Tanah Lot temple, one of Bali’s most revered Hindu sanctuaries, and about one hour from Ngurah Rai International Airport. The hotel is nestled in a tropical enclave a short walk away from the volcanic-sand beaches of the southwest coast of Bali. Nirjhara is secluded enough to offer a truly relaxing experience while remaining only 15 minutes from the up-and-coming coastal village of Canggu, 30 minutes away from the energy and excitement of Seminyak, and 45 minutes away from Ubud, the spiritual heart of Bali.
