Swimming pool & garden
The swimming pool is 30 meters in length, incorporating a kids’ pool at one end. It is lined with rustic blue Java stone and the curved infinity edge follows the contour of the rice terraces.
Boasting a surface of palimanan stones, the pool deck is furnished with sun loungers and there is an open-sided ‘bale’ (relaxation pavilion) positioned within the pool and accessed by stepping stones.
A raised walkway leads to an elevated bale, a traditional lazy, breezy gazebo with a thatched roof, open sides and a cushioned floor. This is the place to relax, contemplate and meditate, while overlooking the river and enjoying the sights and sounds of nature, butterflies and birds.
Further towards the front of the property, a wide flat lawn planted with four palms is the ideal setting for parties, weddings and events. A pathway leads down to the river and the gardens spill out into the paddy fields to a traditional pavilion designed for wedding ceremonies.
There is also a herb garden and an environmentally-friendly waste water garden. If the season is right, guests will have the opportunity to plant some rice. On the far side of the river, a picturesque rice terrace is carved like an amphitheatre into the contours of the land.
