Drive along the east coast of Bali to visit a beautiful water palace that is known as Taman Ujung. This gorgeous building set in a rather unique landscape surrounded by water was built in 1909 at the request of the King of Karangasem I, I Gusti Bagus Jelantik.
Located in Karangasem regency, on a plot that is set against the backdrop of the glorious Mount Agung and eastern shoreline, Taman Ujung Water Palace possesses an architectural feature that perhaps is quite rare to find.
This stunning palace owes its beauty to surrounding picturesque pools and an elegant combination of West meets East style as the result of a collaboration between Dutch architect van Den Hentz and Chinese architect Loto Ang, who also involved several undagi, or Balinese architects.
Inspired by its beautiful pillars, statues, lush scenery, and scenic features, our architects decided to emulate the water palace in designing The Ritz-Carlton, Bali. Each of our buildings represents the grandeur of Taman Ujung, combining contemporary style with the intricate flair of Balinese and Asian motifs. The surrounding ambience of our resort is also owed to the beauty of Taman Ujung’s scenic water garden. We offer its stunning royal expanse to you in our lush pond and garden landscape, as water plays important role for Balinese.
