This eight-room micro hotel ‘floats’ between the coconut palms of Bali’s Jembrana jungle, offering guests an elevated stay that’s somewhere between a modernist oasis and treehouse fantasy.
German-born designer Alexis Dornier and Balinese Studio Jencquel collaborated on Lost Lindenberg, with latter handling the interiors and landscaping and designing much of the furniture, lighting and tableware for the resort.
The Bali hotel’s eight rooms rest on central pillars that raise the living spaces up into the tree canopy, with wooden louvred walls helping to dissolve the barriers between indoors and outdoors and panoramic windows bringing the jungle and sea views into the space.
Studio Jencquel has created a welcoming atmosphere with plenty of wooden panelling and deep velvet sofas, and says the goal was to make it seem like ‘someone else has been living here for a prolonged period of time and made this their home’.
Suites start around $395 a night, and when guests are ready to come down from the treetops, they can soak in Lost Lindenburg’s natural pool, book onto an intensive surf programme at the nearby black sand beach or jump on the hotel’s VW bus for a tour of the island.
