Udang House or shrimp House is a very unique home of the Bambu Indah. Originally situated on the bottom part of the estate, close to the Ayung River and above an original shrimp pond that was used as food production, this house was brought back on the top level of the compound and opened for guests to enjoy.
Now, Udang House, still has a tempered glass floor panels for an underwater panorama, over a natural pond. The house is situated at the source of the water fountain that supplies the natural pool so, the pond is not used for food production anymore, but the originality of this house is still the architectural innovation to find a glass floor in a century old house.
Authentic shrimp baskets have been converted into lamps while the house also enjoys the view over the Sayan valley. The porch is private and cozy for languid afternoons taking in the sounds of the bubbling fountain and coolness of the water.
The shower is partly indoor and partly outdoor providing guests an opportunity to commune with Nature. The glass tiled roof of the bathroom allows entry of the sunlight and the Bali moonlight at night–an exquisite experience to bring the weary traveler back to life and create a connection to source.
Important note: For those who have been in visual contact with photos that are a bit too bright to be true, please, keep in mind that Bambu Indah is proud of the rusticity and authenticity of the experience and culture. Udang House is not an underwater fluorescent ship, but definitely is a beautiful Old Lady with “cold feet” ! You are welcome to enjoy the photos below that are more accurate to the experience you will receive. We hope you will enjoy our antique home, for its true beauty and originality.
