Awang - Awang *****

Village of Melayang, Ubud


Awang - AwangSwimming Pool

Awang-Awang can be translated as “floating in the space between heaven and earth” – the perfect description for this beautiful villa perched on the edge of a gorge with breathtaking views of the sacred Petanu River and lush tropical forest.

The house was designed by the Balinese architect Ir. Ida Bagus Wiadnyana according to ancient traditions with the correct alignments toward the holy mountain.

Traditional materials are used throughout to harmonize with the environment - alang-alang thatched roofing, hand-made terracotta floor tiles, stone and marble, all crafted by local artists.

The house is cooled by fans and natural cross breezes over water gardens.

Entry is via the traditional Balinese gate-way protected by stone guardians. The stone pathway lined with heliconia, orchids, gingers and frangipani leads through tranquil lotus and water-lily filled fish ponds.

Antique Javanese doors open onto the large main living area with a soaring alang-alang roof and spectacular views from the open terrace.
