Hoshinoya, operated by Hishino Resorts, a famous luxurious chained hotel, opened Hoshinoya Bali in January, in Ubud, Bali island. As the people in Bali keep traditional arts and crafts and music from Bali Hinduism, the hotel quoted them in its environmental design elegantly. Roughly the hotel can be divided in two zones. A flat zone, facing to a pool, is for accommodation and a zone on a steep-side-valley is open to the public. In various places in the hotel site, you see some gazebos, which provide you relaxation. Public space and private space fuse together smoothly in a Japanese way of spatial composition.

In the entrance lounge on the ground level has an art wall decoration composed of salvaged parts of an old ship. A restaurant on the second story used fourteen art pieces as partitions for booths. The guest rooms occupy from the third to the sixth story and the seventh floor is for suite rooms. The notable interior materials are mud, wood and other related natural materials. On the roof top there is a big bath and outdoor bath commanding panoramic views of the pacific ocean and there is also a open deck area reminding us of a ship deck.
