Oriental color scheme for Bali hotel
Bali and Bankok-based Bensley Architecture has designed the Capella Ubud in Bali, which was to keep the footprint small, fit the plan in between the trees – and never cut one down, while not compromising on the luxury accommodation and other facilities.
Instead of standing tall on an overbuilt island, this resort and its rooms hunker down and are essentially invisible to the outside world. The signature theme of the over 2,000 sq ft. lodge is its exotic, oriental color scheme and whimsical design. The architect conceptualized the two-bedroom accommodation based on the history of the owners of the property, who are of Chinese descent.
The lodge features a master bedroom with a king-sized bed, a twin second bedroom, two bathrooms (one featuring a Japanese bath tub and one with a hand-hammered copper bath). The al fresco living room with its private refreshment bar leads to a large outdoor deck with two large daybeds – the perfect spot to spend time amidst the serene rainforest landscape with great views of the Wos river. The lodge has a 19 sqm private salt water pool as well.
