ECO DESIGN: SACRED MOUNTAIN SANCTUARY is in all senses
of the word a true Eco-Retreat Lodge, from site plan,
architecture and gardens to constructed wetlands wastewater
purification. It is the largest bamboo* building project
in Bali and perhaps all of Indonesia and South East
Asia. Over 10,000 bamboo stalks, all from Balinese forests
mostly in the area of the Sanctuary were used and tied
together by local craftsmen in the traditional manner
to create the villas., Over 3,000 trees were saved by
using bamboo as the main building material. The effect
is pure magic, transporting one back in time when this
ancient practice began.
Tap water comes from a mountain spring and is purified
by sand filters and ultra violet light. Salad greens,
vegetables, herbs, papaya, jack fruit, rambutan, mango
and other varieties of fruit trees and food are organically
grown in the Sanctuary's gardens. Garbage is separated.
and recycled whenever possible. Organic waste from the
kitchen is composted, adding nutrients to the soil.
Furnishings by local craftspeople are almost all made
of bamboo. Wastewater Gardens designed by Dr. Mark Nelson
of the Planetary Coral Reef Foundation treat the septic
and grease trap waste water.
The site plan was designed utilizing the natural contours
of the land to reduce earth moving. Buildings are almost
all raised off the ground for minimal environmental
impact. Almost all the building materials came from
the Sidemen area. Bamboo was harvested from the surrounding
mountain forests. Stone and sand were supplied by the
river and nearby quarries; Alang-alang (special grass)
for the roofs came from the high mountain meadows that
ring the valley. Most all of the other materials came
from the neighboring island of Java. Local carpenters
and assistants worked creatively alongside craftsmen
from other parts of Bali, Java and Lombok to build SACRED
Villas at Sacred Mountain Sanctuary
spring fed dipping pools refresh the spirit in secluded
gardens. Elements of Feng Shui are found throughout
the villas and gardens. Our 19 villas are each uniquely
designed with the extraordinary in mind. Set amidst
spectacular natural surroundings and constructed in
bamboo, volcanic rock & other eco-friendly materials.
