Tanah Gajah, a Resort by Hadiprana, Lands Coveted Spot on Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Award

The popular resort is named #4 Best Resort in Indonesia and #31 Best Resort in the World

(UBUD - BALI) Oct. 10, 2022 – Tanah Gajah, a Resort by Hadiprana, a homegrown resort moored amid the rice paddies of Ubud, was chosen by some of the world’s most discerning travelers as one of the best resorts, globally, last week.

In the Condé Nast Traveler annual Readers’ Choice Awards, announced on October 4th, Tanah Gajah was recognized as the 4th Best Resort in Indonesia and 31st Best Resort in the world.

More than 240,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers submitted responses rating their travel experiences across the globe to provide a snapshot of the top places they enjoyed this year and can’t wait to return to next. The Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and the full list of winners can be found here.

“We feel blessed that Tanah Gajah has achieved this milestone and is now recognized amongst the top resorts in the world,” said Deasy Swandarini, GM of Tanah Gajah Ubud. “We are also proud that we were the only independent boutique resort brand in Indonesia to make it onto the list.”

The 20-key property is spread out over six lush hectares of land in the uplands of Bali. With roots that go back to the legendary designer and art collector, Hendra Hadiprana, the property has long attracted art and design lovers. It was originally built in the 1980s as a holiday home for Hadiprana and his family and was transformed into a resort in 2004. Though the Hadiprana family relinquished its occupancy of the site as a private family compound, the patriarch’s art collection remained, and numerous sculptures, antiques, and artwork from his travels can be found throughout the property to this day.

The resort offers two dining destinations, The Tempayan and Panen Padi Lounge. The new Tempayan was unveiled in 2020 with a design inspired by wantilan, a Balinese style pavilion. The tapas outlet, Panen Padi Lounge, also debuted during the pandemic. Both locations command prime locations with views over rice paddies and the resort’s hot air balloon experience.

The resort’s spa also takes in the property’s quintessential Balinese landscape, while the main pool is guarded over by Ganesh statues and partially flanked by ponds with resident swans. Private pool villas are available for guests who would like to enjoy a dip in privacy.

The 2022 Readers' Choice Awards are published on Condé Nast Traveler's website at and celebrated in the November issue.
