There is currently building work taking place next door to the hotel, but disruption to guests should be minimal with noise disruption limited to the area around the infinity pool between 9am and 4pm only. While works are taking place, guests are invited to use the pool at the hotel's sister property, Folk Pool & Gardens, and Bisma Eight is offering 15 per cent of all food and drinks while you’re at Folk: ask any member of staff at the hotel and they'll arrange a five-minute transfer for you with one of the hotel's drivers.

Our favourite rooms
We love that all rooms come with a Japanese soaking tub made from Canadian cedar wood and natural Balinese soaps. If you fancy stepping from bed directly out onto your private jungle-view balcony, go for a spacious Forest Suite: you’ll wake to the sun glimmering through your curtains and squirrels chasing each other among the trees. Forest Suites are also spacious, with a separate living area.
Enjoy dips in the heated outdoor infinity pool from 7am to 9pm; we recommend swimming to the far corner for the best jungle views. The pool is flanked by a wooden deck with a dozen sunloungers and is steps from the Pavilion bar, which serves all-day dining and drinks.
Pack classically beautiful swimsuits for the aesthetically pleasing pool and outdoor-worthy shoes for guided treks through the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary.
There’s a shrine to Ganesh in the lobby; at check-in, front desk staff will offer you a garland of flowers to lay at the altar.
Little Smiths are welcome, but not catered to; the grounds are not pram-friendly and the pool was designed with grown-ups in mind. Baby cots, highchairs and extra beds for children can be provided, and babysitting can be arranged with three hours' notice.
Most of the ingredients used in the Copper Kitchen & Bar come from the hotel’s organic garden.
