About this listing
Set within a river valley landscape along Bali’s sacred Ayung River, this all bamboo house is unique. It is located in the Green Village, first established in 2010, a master-planned community of high end bamboo villas with its distinctive blonde roofs. Entering the house is a feast to the eyes and a showcase at how black and white bamboo can be combined in all shapes and pattern to create a stunning collection of luxurious floors, walls, ceiling, stairs and railings. Even the roof is an innovative arrangement of bamboo shingles.
This incredible house, called Sunrise House, perched on the edge of the Ayung river valley, comprises an incredible 4 floors, with 3 double bed bedrooms, 3 ensuite bathrooms, kitchen, lounge and dining area with fabulous views, plunge pool, an office/ work area on the top (4th) floor, and other lookout areas. The main entrance is on the 3rd floor, where the lounge and kitchen and TV bubble room are situated. Going down the stairs to the second floor leads to 2 bedrooms, each with ceiling fans, both with ensuite bathrooms, and a reading room between the two. The bottom floor holds the Master Bedroom, with AC. It is unlikely guests will need AC! The master bedroom also includes a drying room with a de-humidifier. All the bedrooms have wind down bamboo blinds for privacy. From the bottom floor, guests can exit the house and take the stairs down to the plunge pool and private garden, perched quite literally on the edge of the river valley. All the rooms are furnished with exquisite bamboo furniture which perfectly complements the décor. The scenery and view from the house is utterly breathtaking. The photos do not do the House and surrounding environment justice. See it and believe it. If you are a party of more than 6, let us know: we can arrange extra sleeping arrangements.
The house includes ADSL WIFI, TV with DVD player (bring DVDs if you want to watch), and Satellite TV. Access is also available to the communal areas which include a natural pool, pavilion, edible gardens

Remarkable Bamboo House River Edge
For dining, guests can order breakfast, lunch and dinner from our menu. Just tell us the day before if you need this service. For your first morning, a Balinese or self catering Western breakfast is included in this rental. We also offer private lunch /dinner catering or a Balinese chef to cook at your villa and menus from Ubud restaurants who will deliver takeaway meals direct to this house! Part of our attraction is that we are set in a very natural environment, and whilst there a couple of local village stores nearby with some very basic supplies, we are 15 mins away the main road. We can help buy supplies for guests, but we do recommend guests bring along any personal supplies you may need, snacks, fruits, drinks. Other available services are massage, and car with driver, and specialised Bamboo related guided tours.
The Green Village is located twenty-five minutes from Bali’s cultural center of Ubud, 1 hour to Bali’s surfing beaches and within walking distance to the renowned Green School campus.
Please treat the house as it it was your own. Respect for the owner please, and no smoking inside the house
Min stay 3 days in High Season (15 Dec - 15 Jan, 1 July - 30 Sept)
Een ontzettend leuke ervaring. Een verblijf in greenvillage vergeet je nooit meer! Fantastische architectuur tenmidden van de natuur.
Wat afgelegen ligging ... Dwz niet dicht bij ubud maar met driver zeker voldoende te zien in de buurt. Je kan kiezen om zelf te koken, eten te bestellen of natuurlijk uit eten te gaan. Een onvergetelijk verblijf!
Amazing experience in an out of this world bamboo house with friends. Loved everything about the avant Gard and sustainable design, just wish it was smaller... For a smaller footprint. But we understand the village is showcasing huge extravagant design as that seems to be what people want. It's a great experience and chance to see the bamboo factory and amazing green school. A great prototype for future sustainable and elegant building. The architecture seems to breathe with you. Aaah....beautiful
Green Village is a stunning, unique place to stay - amazing views from within the house over the valley, and the house itself is spectacular and very comfortable. Fantastic to see a different side of Bali, well away from the crowds of the coast. If you get chance to stay here - do!
Staying in the bamboo village was a very special experience. The house is truly incredible and spectacular, as is wandering the grounds and looking at the other homes. We had a fantastic experience at the green village and highly recommend it.
Wir haben uns im Green-Village sofort sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir wurden von Meggi herzlich empfangen und ausfühlich über alles Wichtige und Wissenswerte informiert. Das Bambus-Haus hat unsere Erwartungen aufgrund der Bilder sogar noch weit übertroffen. Es ist faszinierend, zu sehen, was Bambus für ein fantastisches Baumaterial ist, und wie man Ökologie und Luxus miteinander verbinden kann.
Der Besuch in der Green-School, welche zum Green-Village gehört, war ebenfalls sehr eindrücklich, erst im Gesamtzusammenhang versteht man den Kontext und die Einzigartigkeit des Konzeptes.
We stayed 3 nights in Bamboo Sunrise House 7 with our 2 teenage sons. We were made to feel very welcomed. Our driver that picked up us was good. We stopped off at The Bali Deli and picked up some snacks on the way. The house is extremely unique, well maintained and really quite incredible. We had free Wifi & television so the boys were happy. As there are no windows, yes there were bugs but the nets around the beds keep them out! We found the beds and pillows extremely comfortable. The only negative is we thought we were closer to Ubud center than what we were actually (approx 30mins with traffic) and because the Bamboo House is quite remote, you really do need to use the Bamboo House drivers (which cost roughly double what you would normally pay). All things considered, we really enjoyed our time and if you are looking for a truly different experience I would recommend it.
The bamboo house was so beautiful and exactly like the pictures and description listed. Our host was so understanding and made sure we were always take care of. We had someone in our group get very sick and she helped coordinate a on call doctor that had visited twice. There were a few times that my group could not make a decision or had changed there mind which could be frustrating for a host but she always made something happen that pleased the whole group.
Regarding location: it is quite a bit outside of UBUD. Every taxi driver could not find the location. When I had asked for a more specific address, they mentioned it was just a hard location to find. We ended up using their taxi drivers often just so we could be sure to make it back home! Also, as the pictures show, there are no walls, bring a lot of bug spray because you will get eaten alive.
Overall, great experience to give a try.
