This structure is part of Aura House, a unique villa located just outside Ubud on the Indonesian island of Bali. The villa has been crafted entirely of local bamboo to create sustainable architecture that is also aesthetically pleasing.
Located just 30 minutes south of Ubud is Aura house, a breathtakingly original space spread out over three floors. It is the perfect getaway for those who are looking for a place where they can disconnect from the world around them. Be ready to be awakened by the sun peeking into your room and the sounds of the river rushing down below.
The bamboo villa has two private en-suite bedrooms, a large and beautifully furnished living room, a small fully-equipped kitchen and a private swimming pool. The villa is laid out across three levels with each one offering a different view over the surrounding Balinese jungle. The treehouse-like structure also has terraces on each level, which are great for dining, showering, doing yoga, or just hanging out in a hammock.
All of the fixtures inside the Bali holiday home, including light fittings and kitchen cabinets, are made from bamboo and have been handcrafted by locals from the island.
The villa is part of the Green Village ecosystem, a compound for like-minded individuals seeking a more sustainable and authentic way of living, and an alternative to the stresses of modern society. It has been recognized as one of Bali’s most remarkable sustainable communities. Each luxury villa and house in Green Village is constructed almost entirely from bamboo, custom-designed by the IBUKU architectural team and built by hand.
Guests of the bamboo villa may also access the compounds communal space, which includes a natural pool, a bamboo pavilion for dining, and the communal kitchen restaurant where guests may order breakfast, lunch, snacks, drinks and dinner.< Back
