White toned terrazzo floors and custom designed ultra comfortable lounge furniture in the ‘white section’ featuring a particular style with strong Japanese influence is made from recycled materials and hand-woven Japanese fabrics. This insinuates a perfect modern interpretation of traditional Balinese and Japanese art- de-vivre. A sunken Japanese table is the main feature in the ‘black section’, where the shiny floor of compressed bamboo, framed by a feature of pebbles made from recycled glass are true eye catchers. Sit down, relax, savour the exotic Tapas and enjoy the views across the water ponds. WWW.SEACOLLECTION.BIZ | WWW.SELECTEDHOTELS.BIZ | WWW.HOTELIERSGUILD.ORG

Combining sustainable design elements such as open plan living allowing for natural ventilation and lighting, spacious living areas and a practical kitchen with the latest Ariston appliances, the villas are fitted with all the creature comforts one is accustomed to. Taking on his first signature project in Bali, Japanese interior design guru, Nobuyuki Narabayashi, former lead designer of ‘SUPER POTATO’ and his creative team envisaged a simplistic interior with a true earthy note. This was brought to life through the use of natural volcanic stones, sleek granite, subtle toned terrazzo, recycled teak for walls, antique timber for floors and custom made furniture created again from recycled teak wood embellished with hand- woven Japanese fabrics. delMangoVillaEstate provides a level of ‘natural’ luxury only found in Bali.

  • media review pleasing to note the efforts of the local hotel associations and certain properties, it has to be said that in general a lot remains to be done. It is, however, not a specific Balinese problem, as it occurs, unfortunately, in most of the top tourist destinations I know of. Whilst I feel that it’s not appropriate for me to advise the authorities on environmental issues – as I am not really an expert, mind you - I would however suggest the obvious, namely that the local infrastructure must grow in accordance with the increasing tourist arrivals and to set stricter guidelines for new developments with benchmarks as to minimum requirements for environmental protection and sustainability. Most importantly, I do believe that education plays a mayor role in this context, as it’s the root of how a culture or society develops. Last but not least, what is your motto? Life is NOT a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well- preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand - martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, “Wow! What a ride!” It’s not the years you add to the life, it’s the life that you add to the years. 19 HelloBaliJan10 OK.indd 19 12/21/09 1: WWW.SEACOLLECTION.BIZ | WWW.SELECETEDHOTELS.BIZ | WWW.HOTELIERSGUILD.ORG 33
