Tanah Gajah, a Resort by Hadiprana, is spread out over a lush six hectares of land in Bali’s spiritual hub Ubud. With roots that go back to legendary designer and art collector, Hendra Hadiprana, the property is an oasis of beauty with a myriad of mythical sculptures and an impressive art collection. The amphitheater is home to one of the property’s most iconic structures, a towering stone-sculpted candi bentar (a Balinese gate) with hand-carved elephants, that has become the most popular place to say “I do.”
The resort offers two dining destinations, The Tempayan and Panen Padi Lounge. The new Tempayan was unveiled in 2020 with a design inspired by wantilan, a Balinese style pavilion. The tapas outlet, Panen Padi Lounge, also debuted during the pandemic. Both locations command prime locations with views over rice paddies and the resort’s hot air balloon experience, also popular with couples. The resort’s spa also takes in the property’s quintessential Balinese landscape, while the main pool is guarded over by Ganesh statues and partially flanked by ponds with resident swans.
Tanah Gajah’s sister property, Dua Dari, a Residence by Hadiprana, is an alternative venue for more intimate affairs of 40 guests or less. The artistic estate, set on a two-hectare plot amid verdant tropical jungle, was also once a spacious family holiday home for the Hadipranas. Wedding ceremonies at the residence are typically held in front of the property’s iconic angel statues (an intuitive friend one told the family’s patriarch that two beautiful angels guarded the land. In Bahasa dua dari means two women or two angels). Nuptials are then followed by a poolside cocktail reception (decorated with floating candles) and a dinner reception at the Balai Barong. Pricing is available upon request through Tanah Gajah.
The Elegant Wedding Package at Tanah Gajah is available until March 31st, 2023.
