Indigo House Bali is the culmination of 20 years of Indonesian and Balinese living, art, style and tradition. It's creator, an early visionary, found a magical piece of property nestled between an ancient Balinese temple and the warm healing waters of the Indian ocean, Pantai Berawa. He imagined a home built on this land, following Indonesian styles, art and techniques. Wanting to be a part of the community instead of isolated from it, it was critical that the home be in harmony with its surroundings and culture.
Indigo House is built around two, century old, Javanese joglos. A joglo, ceiling detail of an ancient joglo shown left, is a traditional Javanese styled wooden construction. They are typically built with massive hard wood (often teak) timbers exquisitely joined together without hardware by master carpenters. The main joglo used in Indigo House was lived in continuously for seven generations prior to finding its new home in Bali.
Indigo House has four stunningly decorated and intensely comfortable bedrooms with private baths, and a fifth room, The Bird's Nest, on the third level of the home. The Bird's Nest comes with an interesting special condition. As Indigo House Bali is built next to an ancient Balinese temple, and directly on temple owned land, its builder involved the temple clerics in every stage of construction. Even before construction began, temple clerics cleansed and blessing the land, preparing it for its new owners. Once built, the clerics inspected the house, room by room, to be sure the house was free from bad spirits, that the house was happy, and in complete harmony with the land on which is was built. These clerics presented the owner of the house with several rules to maintain this harmony and balance. One such rule applies only to The Bird's Nest Room - no "Intimate Relations" allowed. We ask that, regardless if you are a believer or not, your respect and honor this condition. The Bird's Nest Room comes with two twin beds, has no private bath, and is perfect for children or adults who can abide by this simple condition.
