Perched atop of the Ayung River Gorge, offering beautiful views of the lush Balinese forest, this is a breathtakingly original space spread out over three floors, with winding staircases and open terraces.
Crafted entirely from black and blonde bamboo, this holiday home in Bali is comprised of three separate, spectacular buildings – the Guest Pavilion (Lemongrass and Frangipani Suites), the Master Pavilion (Orchid Suite, Ananda Spa and Meditation Nest) and the Bali Living Pavilion (an open plan kitchen and living dining area, with a childrens’ loft and the adjacent Butterfly Terrace and Pool & Terrace).
The treehouse-like structure has terraces on each level, which are great for dining, showering, doing yoga, or just hanging out in a hammock.
Make your way to the bottom of the stairways, and there’s a private swimming pool among the lush permacultured gardens.
Daily housekeeping is provided, as is breakfast on the first day. Optional extras include massage, meal service and room service, laundry service, transportation, and bamboo-related workshops and tours.
Wifi throughout, complimentary Urama Spice bath amenities, robes and slippers.
The Green Village attractions include the Green School, where education is designed around the principles of organic permaculture, the Kul Kul Permaculture Farm and the Bamboo Factory.
Passing through jaw dropping natural beauty on mountain roads leading from the coast, the cooler jungle highland regions also give way to the famous inland town of Ubud.
Tourists have begun to descend in larger numbers but it’s also a traditional town with arts and cultural centers, fine dining and a laid back vibe.
There are several beautiful spots just minutes from the villa including the Campuhan Ridge Walk, the Ayung River for rafting, and the Taro Elephant Sanctuary, where you’ll have a first-hand glimpse into authentic village life with all its rituals, beautiful dress and traditional ceremonies. The Kecak Fire Dance, is a must-see while in Ubud, with several temples offering evening performances.
Just an hour outside of the sprawling and slightly chaotic capital of Denpasar, you are also within an hour of the coastal beaches and surfing in Seminyak.
Each luxury villa and house in Green Village is constructed almost entirely from bamboo, custom-designed by the IBUKU architectural team and built by hand.
