What’s the Deal?
Nestled between lush rice paddies and thick jungle, three adult-sized treehouses rise from the sleepy Balinese village of Penestanan, four kilometres from Ubud town. Designed by Bali-based architect Alexis Dornier, Life Bali’s boutique lodges began as an experiment in eco-architecture to create surreal structures that nonetheless blended into their surrounds: large concrete blocks were repudiated in favour of light, natural materials, and boring earth-based structures were replaced by units that floated in the treetops.
Lift Bali offers the ultimate opportunity to live out your Tarzan fantasies in leafy luxury. Whether you stay in the Ernest Hemingway, George Orwell or Stanley Kubrick lodge, you’ll be surrounded by nature and all the trappings of five-star hospitality, from four-poster beds to private decks.
If you feel like climbing down your spiral staircase, the boutique resort also offers a sauna, pool, bar and yoga deck. Further afield, you’re perfectly positioned to explore the cute cafes, artisan studios and boutiques of Ubud.
