Bambu Indah (@bambuindah)
The founders of eco boutique hotel Bambu Indah acquired 11 antique Javanese teak houses 12 years ago—these ‘bridal houses’ were built by noblemen for their new wives more than 100 years ago. After carefully dismantling these historical buildings, they brought them to Bali, restored them and share them with guests from around the world. The hotel’s restaurant, Dapoer, serves up local recipes that uses 75% Indonesia-produced ingredients. You can also look forward to memorable experiences such as Balinese blessings and ceremonies, hikes and tours.
