Nandini Jungle Resort and Spa
Written by Jane Sophia

Some hotels or resorts don’t need a review on Trip Advisor or in similar hotel review sites. Just a few photographs or one or two videos of the resorts would instantly convince you that it is where you are going to stay. I mean you don’t require others’ opinions to make up your mind.

The Nandini Jungle Resort and Spa is one such place. Imagine an individual villa located on a mountain slope, one below the other. How will they look like?

Add thick rainforest, a gurgling Ayung River, exotic birds songs, and the most delicious food cooked with the freshest of vegetables and tropical fruits to your visualization.

Do you get the whole picture of the location of Nandini Jungle Spa and Resort?

Now, look at the video below and see if it matches your visualization.

The best restaurant in Ubud, Bali

Though your stay in the Nandini Jungle Resort includes free breakfast and free dinner, you will still feel like going out to a local restaurant that serves 100% authentic Balinese cuisine-right?

Take the free shuttle service offered by the resort and ask around for the Locavore restaurant where you are promised a unique dining time. The ingredients are fully locally grown and chemical free cultivation that includes ‘lemon basil’. Wow! I would like to try that.

Try these delicacies in Locavore:

  • Caffeinated fish(?)
  • Passion fruit sorbet
  • Goar Tartare
  • Green asparagus and eggplant puree
  • Rambutan based sweet drink
  • In the drinks section, have a glass of vodka infused with red chilies and lemongrass.

The cocktails menu of Locavore is quite lengthy and would entice anyone to try all of them.

So, when you plan a trip to Bali Island, try to stay in the stunning Nandini Jungle Resort and Spa.
