I was lucky enough to experience the best airbnb in Indonesia during my trip with Ministry of Tourism Indonesia. If you are not familiar with the place’s name, you would have seen that gigantic swing above the rainforest on Instagram. The Zen Hideaway is about 30 minutes drive from Ubud, but during peak hours and high seasons, it may take up to an hour to get there. The place is always fully booked during summer months, so make sure you plan your trip as early as possible.
The big swing is located at Zen Hideaway No.2, it is not as easy as you thought it would be, at least not for your first ride. I would 100% recommend you think twice before you book it if you are scared of height, as the swing is completely “off” the cliff, so you will need to pull it back so you can sit on it. And if you missed “your manual feet landing” when you swing back, you would need someone pull you back from the cliff. (NO, this is not a joke, so let’s give a applause to all these brave Instagrammers)
Things you need to know before you stay here:
Bring Insects sprays: you are in the middle of the jungle and there are no windows
Install Go-Jek or bring on your smart phones for food deliveries or bring your own food, it is bit far from anywhere (There is also a dine-in menu provided in-house)
We can both get up to $50 cash back if you sign up and book your first trip on Airbnb via HERE.
We can both get A$25 cash back if you book your hotels via HERE
