Villa Pererepan in Melayang, Bali
The Eco-villa evolved from a desire to construct a dwelling from natural materials which would blend with nature and have minimal impact on the environment. We were very fortunate that Agung Putradhyana, one of Bali’s ‘green’ architects who is passionate about environmental issues, agreed to take on the project.
The main structure is formed using bamboo clad with iron-wood shingles. Glass/ bamboo doors use a simple pivot pin system so they can be angled in any position to catch the cooling breezes or enjoy the lush valley view down to the river below.
The villa has one open plan living/ sleeping area with a small kitchenette overlooking the jungle. A traditional Balinese carved door leads into a rustic semi- open bathroom with a free formed stone bath tub and a large rain shower. As far as possible all natural materials are used for the furniture and furnishings including a king size natural latex mattress and soft luxurious organic bamboo bed linen and towels. Bamboo fiber is four times more absorbent than cotton and contains an anti- microbial agent which prevents bacteria from cultivating.
Awang Awang means “floating in the space between heaven and earth” – the perfect description for our villas, perched dramatically on the edge of a deep ravine with breathtaking views of the sacred Petanu River and the lush tropical forests that clad its banks.
Like many others, we fell in love with the ‘Island of the Gods’ and her people, and we feel privileged to have been able to create this peaceful haven in collaboration with the local village.
Villa Awang Awang can be rented in conjunction with the two bed-room Villa Beji, the two bedroom Villa Melah, the one bedroom Villa Luwih and the one bed-room eco-friendly Villa Pererepan. You therefore have the choice of anything between a one-bedroom to twelve bedroom renting option, with accommodation for up to 23 guests. Up to 4 more guests can be accommodated using extra beds. This peaceful retreat is ideal for those in search of culture, nature, relaxation and inspiration, combined with personalized service. Here, you will be surrounded by most of the features that draw people to this unique and beautiful island.
