The Bungadesa property hosts two magnificent villas comprised of five en-suite bedrooms in three spacious pavilions and two en-suite bedrooms in two pavilions, with a total of seven bedrooms to pamper fourteen guests. The pavilions are named after to the five islands of Indonesia and retain the architectural essence of the respective islands. Each pavilion is a contemporary exhibition of classical Indonesian architecture and carpentry, art forms which are fast fading into history. All the pavilions are a spectacle in themselves. The design inspirations received by travelling to the five islands, can be attained by staying in the luxury property. From the saddle-back roof and open architectures of Torajo in Sulawesi to the grass (alang-alang) thatched roof of Irian island, from the gabled brick tiles and openness of Timor and Madura islands to traditional bamboo lumbungs (rice barns) of Lombok island, from Javanese joglos to Balinese salas – Bungadesa is an Indonesian renaissance.
