A Vernacular Paradise in Bali.

Ulaman Wellness Retreat, a carbon zero-project, is created with locally available materials and built by workmen from the vicinity of Kaba Kaba, Bali, Indonesia.


Ulaman Retreat / Inspiral Architecture and Design Studios.

Text description provided by the architects. Located inland in Bali, this wellness retreat has been integrated into a forest that borders luscious rice fields on one side and a dramatic river on the other. The river converges water from the whole area creating a junction of small waterfalls that produces enough flow to power a hydro electric generator that can sustain the power of the buildings within the complex. Merging with nature has been at the forefront in the approach to the design, not just by its operation but by using materials found directly on the site and the immediate locality, therefore enabling the resort to become fully carbon zero.

In a world where everyone is moving toward’s sustainability, architects are also building their structures with materials that are sensitive and kind to nature. One such sustainable option is bamboo! ! Bamboo is being used to create beautiful and majestic structures, that are green and respect their surrounding environment. It is imperative to build homes, resorts, offices and etc that are in harmony with the natural environment around them.


Ulaman, the Eco Wellness retreat in Bali.

We found plenty of what we love most at Ulaman Eco Retreat. It’s one of the most sustainable boutique hotels you’ll find on the island, designed with inventive architecture, understated luxury, and absolute comfort in mind. Its modern approach to wellness includes a deliciously nourishing cuisine, all set within a lush and serene environment.

One of the things I love most about Bali is the amazing places that exist only here on the island. Whatever your fancy, you can create it! And, as a visitor, you can stay in places that almost straight out of children’s books. Fairy tales that seemed impossible, but that someone actually dreamt of and made into reality.

Ulaman feels like a fairy tale. A small boutique hotel with its own private waterfall to swim in.

Bamboo, a new source of strength in construction industry.

I think everyone in this world knows about Bamboo specie. It is a type of grass that is found mainly in countries in the Southeast Asian region. It resembles wood because it has elements and components that mimic the strength and durability of wood. It is also widely used in furniture making and has made bamboo one of the cheapest option yet serves its purpose in terms of work-ability, durability, and strength.


Asali Bali : pour en finir avec la cabane en bambou.

Ah, le bambou à Bali… Une histoire ancienne, indissociable des traditions balinaises, qui attire aujourd’hui des compétences nouvelles et extérieures à l’île dont La Gazette de Bali s’est fait l’écho à maintes reprises. Surfant sur la vague du vert, ce matériau naturel vit aujourd’hui sa deuxième vie, dans des bâtiments techniquement ambitieux, supposés durables et qui valorisent l’éthique de leurs propriétaires. Oui, le bambou porte avec lui des espoirs de lendemains meilleurs dans ce monde qui gaspille et détruit tout.
