Adiwana Resorts invited me to capture to their modern Arkara villa and their Arya villa which has traditional Javanese Gladad houses.
My goal visiting these 2 resorts was to capture the difference between the more modern look and the traditional local village with more greens and surroundings.
Encompassed by lush greenery and productive rice fields, Arkara Villa & Suite is a boutique property set within the traditional Balinese village of Singakerta on the outskirts of Ubud. It is an intimate retreat designed to harmonize with the surrounding environment and Bali’s rich cultural heritage.
Escape to an idyllic of modern comforts, unparalleled service and warm local village charm. All Adiwana Arya Villas suites are built following traditional Javanese House named Gladak House, Gladak is a Javanese word for an antique wooden house
