A large thatched open-sided pavilion with a terracotta tile floor is situated in the garden . You can relax here, dine or entertain friends. It is also used as a venue for weddings , parties , meditation / yoga courses and Balinese dance and gamelan performances.
In the forest, broad-canopied acacia trees, stately lontar, umbrella ferns, rippling banana leaves and giant bamboo mingle with tall coconut palms and majestic breadfruit trees. Here, you will be surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature – birds, butterflies, cicadas and the ceaseless flow of the river, as well as ritual music from the village temples. The area is a birdwatcher’s paradise and the iridescent blue Java Kingfisher with its distinctive red beak is a common sight, while monkeys can be seen playing in the trees. White herons fly over the valley to and from Petulu at dawn and dusk. After dark, the scent of night jasmine fills the air and the valley comes alive with flickering fire-flies.
Guests can explore the extensive gardens which encompass an organic vegetable garden and numerous tropical fruit trees as well as cocoa and coffee trees. Sample a freshly harvested coconut milk or an herbal tea. Rustic wooden seats are placed throughout where one can sit, read, or simply enjoy the views.
