Kelusa, Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

     The next building is the air conditioned Glass House, a two-story glass-walled studio with a library and two spacious in-suite master bedrooms with king beds.  The bottom suite can also be configured with two single beds.  The doors and windows open completely to bring the surroundings inside.

     The Northernmost building is an open air Pool Cabana with a private infinity pool and lounge area, with access to a large, landscaped lawn and rock garden.

     All buildings are perched atop a ridge, above tiled rice paddies that cascade down an enormous, steep ravine to the Pakuseba River and face West to maximize stunning sunset views over nine ancient volcanoes.

     Pondok Sapi, which means “pavilion of the cow” is named after the ubiquitous Balinese thatched sheds which dot the jungles and also shelter the farmers in their rice terraces.  Pondok Sapi was designed as the private residence of a retired American writer and television journalist. Three separate buildings make up Pondok Sapi.

     Immediately to the North of Villa Kelusa’s entry gate rests the Main Pavilion, an open-air entertainment structure with breathtaking views of the Pakuseba Canyon.  The Main Pavilion contains a gourmet kitchen, dining and living areas, full bathroom and an enclosed, air-conditioned media room that can be converted into a luxury bedroom.
