The tour continues on to Green Village, where you’ll experience a community of one-of-a-kind bespoke of bamboo homes.

Update:
The homes at Green Village are almost fully occupied for the upcoming few months, so our opportunities to tour them are few.

GREEN SCHOOL

Explore the imaginative campus of Green School with its fifty plus bamboo structures, surrounded by forest and rice fields. Learn about their use of alternative energy sources and their focus on creativity and culture. The walk around Green School will be an adventure. We are located on a steep ravine, so be prepared with the right walking shoes or sandals as we will be walking on rocks, and going up and down many steps. We don’t recommend bringing heavy backpacks or luggage. We suggest wearing light clothes and bringing an umbrella or raincoat, especially during the rainy season.

REVIEWS

Moko was an excellent tour guide at the PT Bamboo Pure factory. Having been with PT Bamboo Pure since it began 8 years ago, he had so much to share. The social and economic impact of this enterprise can only be positive to the local communities – I was really impressed! The bamboo mansions were brilliant and I would have loved the chance to spend a couple of nights in one of those houses! … I immensely enjoyed feasting my eyes on the homes (both exterior and interiors)! That a humble blade of grass could be made so glorious and beautiful!

~ Joanna

A fantastic experience.

~ Lars

WOW!! We had a fabulous time firstly learning about the whole bamboo process – from plantation to workshop right through to design – Patrick was so informative and explained things simply and clearly. We were so impressed with the Green Village – and felt incredibly lucky to view the Sharma Springs Mansion. Our guide was very friendly & helpful. I would most definitely recommend this experience (but keep it a hidden secret gem!), – we also added the option to use a driver from the Green Village. Our driver Mike arrived on time & was a very friendly safe driver. Thank you to the whole team!

~ Jill

This place was the highlight of my entire trip to Bali. Couldn’t believe my eyes when I walked into Spring house – 6 levels of complete luxury (the all-bamboo place even has a wine cellar!) The view during lunch was breathtaking and I will be back to stay next time!

~ Amanda

There are many places in Bali, that you can describe as “paradise”. Well… for me there were, until I visited Spring House. This place is just astonishing and words cannot decribe the impression. It’s a 200% must to see it if you only have a chance, no excuses!

~ Marcin

Pictures simply cannot express how amazingly mindblowing this place is, it truly takes a genius mind to dream up a fantasy accommodation like this place. Everybody who comes to Bali NEEDS to see this place!!!

~ RJ

If there was only one place you could see in Bali (although that should never be the case) this would be it. I would never have imagined how something as natural and simple as bamboo could result in something so beautiful and epic. The Bamboo Mansions are unlike anything you’ve seen before. Tip: It’s so hidden that even local drivers are unaware of the location and may spend up to 30min of your time just looking for it – best book their own driver to be sure making the most of your time.

~ Sameer

From the minute we walked in it was like being swept into another world. I loved the Balinese architecture, it’s outstanding the entire mansion is made of bamboo and not a single nail! It’s absolutely an incredible place. The open concept and the scenery of the green village across the river was just breathtaking! This is what I imagined how Bali would look like. Every room had a private patio and was unique from revolving shelves to suspended hanging beds. A true one of kind. All the staff were very friendly and the food was scrumptious too! A total must see, you won’t regret it.

~ Kauna

The visiting is certainly out of my expectation. I have always been amazed with how bamboo make an aesthetic furniture and i certainly admired the handiwork of the spring house and other furnitures. The architect Mr Moko is a wonderful teacher who shared his experience and his passion for bamboo making during the design workshop. Jennie was my tour guide when I visited the bamboo mansion. Was not able to visit each mansion individually as there were guest in it. But i manage to visit the spring house which is the highlight of the trip. It’s amazing to see a house make of bamboo. Definitely worth the visit and a stay =)
