Monica, Charlene and I left the hustle and bustle of the tourist trap also known as Kuta, after the Fearless wedding conference needing some peace and quiet. Charlene had booked us a villa on the rice paddies just outside of Ubud through airb&b and we really had no idea what to expect as so often photos can be very misleading. Our jaws had to be picked up off the floor when we walked into Benu House and we had to give each other a good pinch just to bring ourselves into reality and realise that we had landed with our bums firmly in the butter.
Benu House is not only in an absolutely breathtaking piece of paradise surrounded by coconut trees and working rice plantations it is also exquisitely decorated. All three of us love interesting and quirky design and we have all commented that Benu House is our idea of a dream house. It is a reclaimed Joglo house from Java, which has been given a modern open plan design and it is mostly blue which is my colour! The furnishings are just perfect and even though it is really modern and spacious it has an Indonesian charm and aesthetic which is exactly what one wants when visiting Bali!
