Beyond Bali, across Indonesia, at the heart of the archipelago.
Ubud, Bali – Dubbed Ubud’s best-kept secret, bambu indah is no stranger to savvy, discerning, conscious travellers worldwide. The family-owned sustainable hotel is a radically distinctive, unique boutique hotel located on the Sayan Ridge above the Ayung River, 15 minutes southwest of central Ubud, Bali.
Bambu indah is a stunning combination of bamboo buildings and antique Javanese teak wood bridal homes, each with individual design details to surround you in beauty and comfort. These eleven bridal homes were hand-picked in 2005 in Java by jewellers and founders of Green School, John and Cynthia Hardy, who originally created bambu indah to accommodate their many friends and guests. They named this collection of antique teak homes bambu indah, which translates to beautiful bamboo.
Bambu Indah has grown to become a nature sanctuary and home away from home for many entrepreneurs, architects, sustainability leaders, artists, doers and change makers from all around the globe, rooting themselves to our grounds to seek inspiration and inflate new energy and innovative ideas into their own projects.
Simply named “dapoer” (kitchen in Bahasa Indonesia), bambu indah’s restaurant boasts traditional homestyle Indonesian menu focusing on the freshest local ingredients, most of which are harvested directly from its on-site permaculture gardens. Its team of gardeners use readily available organic matter such as kitchen scraps and jungle trimmings to improve soil. They grow a wide variety of tropical fruits, vegetables and flowers. The garden produce is enjoyed by both its customers and staff. bambu indah believes that its land should be responsibly cultivated to produce nutritious food. dapoer promises a one-of-a-kind Indonesian dining experience true to the roots of the archipelago, in an inspired, innovative environment that offers an authentic relationship with nature. The restaurant is also available for private dining and special events.
In an effort to minimize plastic wastage, bambu indah does not serve commercially bottled mineral water. The hotel features a hospital standard triple filter water system, which makes its water safe to drink straight from the tap – certainly a rare facility on the island and in the country!
bambu indah warmly opens its antique Javanese doors to the world; the hotel is being offered as a special haven, a glamorous sanctuary for all to enjoy the authentic, heartfelt Bali – Land of the Gods and Goddesses.
