The Riverside Warung
Overlooking the spectacular Ayung River and spring-fed natural bathing pools, the riverside Warung is Bambu Indah’s signature restaurant. Delicious food sustainably and locally sourced is cooked in a traditional Balinese-style open air kitchen but it’s the dining room with roofs of treated bamboo bent into overlapping arches supporting a curved roof of hand-folded cand hammered opper shingles which catch the eye. “I wanted it to appear as though it was constructed by a highly intelligent bird,” explains Elora Hardy, John’s daughter and founder of Ibuku an innovative design and architectural company leading the way in working with bamboo and other sustainable materials. Open 7.30am to 9.30pm. Public access: Day-passes from: 10AM-4PM. Dinner: 5:30PM-9:30PM (last order at 8:30pm).
