13 April 2015

Like a portal into another world, the Balinese door is inviting, enticing and enchanting.

They come in  a variety of shapes, sizes and styles, often custom-made to fit the proportions of their owners. Exceptionally fine doors have been a means of displaying social wealth and status for hundreds of years. A rich man’s door might be elaborately carved and embellished with gold leaf, whereas a simple tri-coloured mountain village door would be enhanced by the patina of age and exposure to the elements.


The Bale Bengong

10 February 2015

The Balinese bale (pronounced balé) is an open-air pavilion or elevated platform, sheltered by a roof and supported by pillars.

he Balinese word ‘bengong’ means ‘lost in thought’, and bale’ means an abode, so a bale bengong is literally a ‘contemplation house’, designed for reflection, dreaming and gazing. For the Balinese it might be a roadside snoozing platform, a gambling den, or a watch tower. Nearly every hotel and villa in Bali boasts at least one bale bengong. Often situated poolside, adjacent to the rice fields or the beach, or within some shady spot in the garden, the bale bengong is an enchanting, lazy, breezy gazebo where you might chill out with a book


A traditional communication system

29 January 2015

The Balinese kul-kul. Every village temple and every ‘banjar’ (traditional village council) has its own kul-kul, which is usually hung within an open-sided pavilion standing upon four pillars and sheltered by a roof.
