Bambu Indah: A Gypsetter’s Mecca

IMG_0044

One of the reasons why I fell in love with Bali many years ago is because of green architecture. Most properties in Ubud like Bambu Indah use local indigenous materials to build. Bamboo structures are very famous over there and I wish that we could follow suit in the Philippines because we do have an abundance of it, too!

The entrance itself is a sight to behold. John Hardy and his family, the creators of this gypsetter’s mecca have executed their vision impeccably. First at Green School, and then with this beautiful tropical piece of paradise you may call home for a few days, if you book here for the duration of your vacation.

IMG_0038Our first meal in Ubud was in their restaurant called Dapoer which promotes slow food. Most of their ingredients are sourced organically, locally and fresh, if not, from their very own gardens.

On this trip, my little globetrotter Maya got to spend precious moments with 3 of her fairy godmothers! How cool is that?

As expected, the food was delicious! Although if you’re dining with kids, be vigilant about spice levels in local Indonesian dishes. My order was too spicy for my daughter!

After eating, we asked for a tour of their eco-luxury resort. This is our almost-complete shot of the #FlowBali crew. Missing Woochae from Seoul here!

It was a hot hot day so I wished I could’ve swam in their natural spring water pool. Maybe next time we book a room here!

It’s nice that all their rooms are actually antique teak wood Javanese designed huts which have been crafted over 100 years ago by the Indonesian locals.

My friend’s son, Kai just had to climb their gigantic bamboo tree-house that resembled a mothership! Oh, how liberating it is for a child to climb and enjoy nature’s wonders! I told my son Santi that I wil ltake him here one day….
