When I think about Indonesia, there are several words that come into my mind. It’s like a brand new world where exotic, luxury and culture are brought together. This incredibly beautiful place redefines peace, comfort and eco-living. A very simple idea was the engine for the Bambu Indah Resort, the owners (John and Cynthia Hardy) wanted to create a special place to host their family and friends. Today travellers all over the world are more than welcomed here.
So, if you decide to give it a try, here’s what you will find here. First of all, you’ll be living in a Javanese teak wood house (which is a single family house, generally built on bamboo). You will also have access to a natural pool, organic bath products, air conditioners, wireless internet, housekeeping services and last but not least, massage and spa services.
There are 11 old Javanese bridal homes, but one of them really caught my attention. Udang house is also known under the name of Shrimp House, because it’s situated somewhere above a shrimp pond. Imagine yourself walking on water. You’ll get the exactly same feeling when you’ll step on the tempered glass floor in the bedroom. With a private cozy porch, and a partially outdoor shower, it’s impossible to spend your summer vacation here without enjoying nature’s treasures. Not to mention the relaxing effect given by the shrimps that will swim under your feet.
The canopy bed will keep you away from mosquitoes, so don’t worry about this aspect. The whole space combined with natural light and the calm blue water under your feet will make you feel like you belong here. Be careful, once you get here you may never want to leave this magnificent place.
