Philosophy: Intense intimacy between man and nature
Plants, animals and land have been disturbed as little as possible. It's been our goal to build around nature - to respect and preserve the inherent beauty of this destination; to coexist with all who dwell here. Great care has been taken to minimize any environmental impact. No rocks were moved, no trees were cut down. As a result no two Villas are the same. Each is unique - taking on the character of the land upon which it is built.
Luxury Hotel Accommodation
JapaMala prefers to call their rooms 'Sarang', which means 'nest' in Malay. Emerging from the wilderness like individual nests is a series of wooden houses, hillside sarangs and beachside villas. Designed and built around the resort's natural landscape, each room is therefore unique in layout.
JapaMala's philosophy of preserving nature in every sense of the word has inspired this very concept of their 'rustic-luxe' design.
Simple elegance that balances comfort and convenience, while many of the Sarangs have private plunge pools and wooden sun decks, all are air-conditioned, equipped with WIFI access, iPod docks, DVD player and cable TV, full mini bars and Espresso machines.
