Renowned for its dramatic treetop arrival via a suspension bridge, Four Seasons Resort Bali at Sayan is now offering guests a 180-degree change of perspective, with the island’s first hotel arrival by river raft.

Set in a river valley close to the artistic center of Ubud, the resort has launched the innovative rafting check-in as an option for guests transferring from its sister property on Bali’s southwest coast, the beachfront Four Seasons Jimbaran Bay.

Instead of the usual 90-minute road transfer, travelers combining a stay at both resorts can instead be taken by private car (a 60-minute drive) to the departure point for a two-hour rafting adventure down the Ayung River, Bali’s longest watercourse.

After enjoying a guided adventure through Class III rapids with views of lush jungle, rice terraces, and majestic gorges, rafters land directly at the Four Seasons’ Riverside Restaurant. Waiting staff ensure a seamless check-in and within minutes guests are relaxing in their room, having experienced a hotel arrival unlike any other.
