Concrete and bamboo frame jungle views at Bali’s Tiing Tejakula resort

These bunker-style holiday villas use typical Balinese building materials to create a decidedly tropical version of brutalism.

Designed by Nic Brunsdon and MANGUNING, each holiday home has a private terrace and pool, screened by towering slabs of concrete – described by the architects as ‘funnels’ for the mountain and ocean views. Bamboo – which is abundant in Bali – has been pressed into the exterior of these, while canes form doors and wall panelling.

The Bali resort’s interiors are purposefully sparse, featuring mainly wood and rattan furniture and lighting. A surprise awaits guests in the middle of the homes, however, where a bathtub sits beneath a light well, surrounded by plants.

The resort is located on the island’s northern coast, in a remote location that takes several hours journey down winding roads and through jungle greenery. Tiing Tejakula offers 14 villas in total, as well as an on-site spa and restaurant, with one-bedroom homes starting at just over £100 per night.
