“A truly remarkable eco resort nestled amongst lush hills, over looking the Ayung River. The beautifully restored old tribal houses, ranging from rustic to chic, mix traditional Javanese furnishings with eclectic pieces from around the world. An enchanting paradise, that's almost impossible to leave!”

Hotel Review

Peaceful and refreshing, Bambu Indah captures the essence of central Bali. The staff will welcome you with big smiles and delight in serving you lovingly prepared meals. Just 15 minutes away from Ubud it feels like another world. Stay in one of seven lovingly restored antique tribal houses with large verandahs and open-air bathrooms. As dusk draws near, listen to a concert of frogs and crickets surrounded by the pulsing glow of fireflies. Wake up to the sound of cocks crowing, the smell of dew-covered grass and the sight of ducks waddling through the lush paddy fields.

Map & Location

What's Nearby

See What They Say

Bambu Indah – literally ‘Beautiful Bamboo’ – is located in the village of Baung, Sayan, 15 minutes south of central Ubud. The villa is comprised of seven unique Javanese houses. These are historic traditional homes built by Javanese tribes over 100 years ago. They are hand-carved teak wood, some intricately painted and all finished with thatched grass roofs. These houses once served as the residences of a Javanese nobleman (as bridal homes). John Hardy brought them from Java and lovingly restored them to serve as accommodation to many of his guests as well as a private hotel.

Other Reviews

Bambu Indah

" This is the consummate south-east Asian eco-retreat; small, scenic, and almost entirely sustainable. On arrival, the first thing you’ll notice is the stress-melting view of a lime, moss, and parakeet-green valley veiled in golden sunshine and dotted with coolie-wearing rice farmers."

Bambu Indah: Bali, Indonesia

"Eco-luxe. Stone paths lead from the bamboo-encased reception area through rice paddies at various stages of growth and past a soaring black bamboo multipurpose structure reminiscent of an ancient ship."

Bambu Indah

"The four hand-carved wooden houses transported from Java, each more than 100 years old, are set amid rice fields on the Sayan Ridge, an ethereal Eden near Ubud."
