This whimsical structure is made entirely out of locally-grown Asper bamboo, and sits on top of the Ayung River Gorge, offering beautiful views of the lush Balinese forest, as well as unforgettable sunset vistas. It’s a breathtakingly original space spread out over three floors, with winding staircases and open terraces. Part Whoville and part Tarzan, this is a home for adventurous spirits craving a unique getaway.
The structure is part of the Green Village initiative – a compound that was hand-built by a group of individuals wanting to create sustainable architecture that’s also aesthetically pleasing. Bamboo has been twisted and curled into beautiful but improbable curves to create staircases and walls, and at times arranged like peacock feathers to create partitions. Light fittings, furniture and even kitchen cabinets are also bamboo, and we love the rotating egg-shaped door created by IBUKU.
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.
This villa for rent in Bali is perfect for lovers of sustainable architecture, for couples wanting to get off the beaten track, and for tucked-away honeymoons.
