If Robinson Crusoe had washed up on a tropical island inhabited by eco-warriors rather than cannibals, this might have been what his life as a castaway would have looked like.
That is of course, if deserted islands came complete with tropical huts perched over natural pools visible under your feet beneath the transparent flooring.
Nearly ten years ago, eleven antique Javanese bridal homes were brought to Bali, restored, and decorated by designer and long time ex-pats, John and Cynthia Hardy.
Bambu Indah is a love-at-first-sight kind of boutique hotel in Ubud, Bali, that combines authentic island living with responsible lifestyle choices and of course, those luxurious little features such as fluffy four poster beds and bathrooms the size of your living room.
The houses are built with sustainable bamboo, the water is filtered, the bath products are organic, the swimming pool is natural (built with lava stones in a vegetation regeneration zone that naturally cleanse and filter the water without the need of chlorine, algaecides or cement), allowing you to sit back and enjoy paradise, guilt-free.
