where to stay in ubud: bambu indah

Kate ParrishComment



bambu indah, which translates to “beautiful bamboo", came to fruition back in 2005 when the owners of the land brought eleven antique homes to bali and began decorating them with the intention of hosting family and friends only [which is so freakin cool and awesome]. they wanted to be surrounded by the rich creativity and history of indonesia, while being comforted by the luxury and service of a boutique hotel.

bambu indah now combines the use of restored antique houses with much newer structures built with sustainable bamboo, which we learned about during our time in the philippines, is extremely durable and light. instead of using concrete foundations, stilted buildings can ultimately be moved or removed with little impact to the ground. their designs also promote use of natural light, ventilation and passive cooling with the use of open air spaces. perched up on a hilltop over looking ricefields and endless palm trees – this place makes you feel like you are away from it all and the zen vibes are very strong. even cooler? their swimming pool is actually a natural spring that looks and feels like you're swimming in a local pond.
