A Historic and Artistic Eco Resort in Balinese Bridal Houses


On the Indonesian island of Bali, the eco resort town of Ubud is an arts and cultural center.


John and Cynthia Hardy have created there a sweet and simple getaway with all the artistic charm and history of Indonesia.

They located eleven antique bridal houses from Java and transported each to Bali to create a unique eco resort, the Bambu Indah.

Each of the Javanese teak wood houses on the property originally served as a bridal house for a Javanese nobleman.

Some of them have the luxurious comfort of a boutique hotel.


The Udang House offers a unique view of fish beneath the ‘floor.’


Bambu Indah combines traditional Balinese architecture with an eco flair.


Some are quite polished and sophisticated, with fine Indonesian antiques.


In one, a rustic outdoor shower over a scattering of stone encourages communing with nature.


In another, an outdoor wash room leads to a small bamboo ladder up to sleeping quarters.


Each bridal house puts the visitor in close contact with nature.


But all pay homage to a distinctive rustic Javanese style.
