Gorgeous estate, very helpful staff. Komang and Kade were great! Sahadewa is a great room with a separate living area. The whole room is enclosed which is good for keeping the mosquitos out at night. I really liked that when we left in the afternoon the staff came in to turn the lights and mosquito repellents on and closed the blinds for us. Please note outdoor bathrooms though, which can be a little scary at night with all the bugs and lizards but it really added to the great experience in my opinion.

After graduating in the 60s and a 21 year stint as a US Navy doctor he began work in Indonesia. His experience and close relationship to Indonesia, from Papua to Sumatra, is reflected in his eclectic home set in extensive, rambling gardens featuring a 25 meter lap pool, plunge pools, a spa overlooking the river, garden pavilions, one of which is often used for Yoga retreats and other gatherings.
