Highs & Lows

  • The antique Javanese joglos are so spacious, you basically have a home complete with a front porch.

  • You don’t need to leave the property, there’s an entire world to explore there (pathways, swings, cascades, bamboo huts).

  • Natural pools, organic cotton towels, rice field views.

  • The bamboo building throughout the site is so impressive, even the elevator is made out of bamboo.

  • Their commitment to sustainability sets an example to the world. Very little negative impact on the environment. 99% plastic free hotel.

  • The handmade copper bathtub in the semi-outdoor bathroom. We took baths every morning for sunrise.
