Three of the villas are designed by Balinese architects according to ancient traditions and a complex system of orientation determined by the direction of the holy mountain, Gunung Agung. Traditional materials are used throughout to harmonize with the environment – alang alang thatched roofing, iron-wood shingles, hand-made terracotta floor tiles, stone and marble, all crafted by local artists.The 2 traditional Javanese teak houses have been salvaged from East Java and restored using recycled floor and roof tiles.
