Jatiluwih Retreat

Jatiluwih is the most beautiful and best preserved rural area in Bali. A World Heritage site by UNESCO, the thousand years old irrigation system, also known as subak, has been well protected over the years and allowed the preservation of the island’s most beautiful terraced rice fields. This is the reason why we have chosen this jaw-dropping area to rebuild our incredible century old, finely carved, merchant house from Aceh.

Located up on a hill, in the heart of a small village, where the Jatiluwih protected area starts, the stilt house offers an exquisite panoramic view stretching until the sea. It is composed of three separate rooms, all connected, including two bedrooms and a living space. The entire house is furnished with the finest antique pieces and bedclothes. A bathroom, equipped with a terrazzo bathtub is located downstairs. In the garden next to the house, we grow our own vegetables and fruit trees. Further down, a charming path leads you to the river, walking you first through the bamboo forest and jungle, facing the mesmerizing rice field sculpted valley. By the riverside and its clear pristine water, you can enjoy a bath or a meal under the teak wood barn.

Building Villa Artis and Suite

Artis Villa has been built with respect to high environmental concerns. Hence, the house is equipped with solar panels providing the guests with hot water, and low energy devices for the lighting. The wood used in the house has been entirely recycled: from the teak wood windows, doors and ceiling structure all coming from former Javanese houses to the ironwood deck and flooring originally used in old bridges and roads of Kalimantan. Colonial train stations’ posts support the terraces’ roof, while the mosaics have been created out of old Dutch marble tiles. The whole building and garden have been conceived in order to display the most exclusive collection of colonial and primitive doors and furniture, as well as to reveal the finest antique art pieces.
