Chedi Club Tanah Gajah Ubud to Offer Hot Air Balloon Experience

The Chedi Club Tanah Gajah Ubud is offering guests the opportunity to experience Bali from the wicker basket of a hot air balloon.

The 23-metre hot air balloon is scheduled to 'fly' three times per day. The 'flights', as the hotel generously calls them, last between five and seven minutes and cost US$150 for each morning and afternoon trip, breakfast or afternoon tea for two included. The final flight of the day includes dinner for two adults and costs US$200.

The Chedi Club plans to offer the special flights between June and November.

Balis got it all - beaches, temples, volcanoes, rice paddies, puppets, dancers, sacred forests - but no balloons, said the general manager of The Chedi Club Ubud, Deasy Swandarini. A balloon is exactly the way to see Ubud from on high.

Each flight climbs 50 metres above the resorts rice fields, and floats at the end of a tether while passengers drink in views of Mt. Agung in the near distance, expansive rice fields below, the forests of Ubud and the 5-hectare estate of Hendra Hadiprana, now The Chedi Club.

You might capture the same images with a drone, but seeing it with your own eye is something else entirely, said Swandarini.

With multiple flights scheduled at dawn, in the late afternoon/early evening and just after moonrise, each experience takes off with a maximum of two adults and two children under 12, as well as a certified pilot, though total guest weight cannot exceed 230kg.
