Natura's design plan was to enhance the beauty of the existing site, with environmental impact being a serious consideration. The preservation of existing vegetation and the protection of the river and wildlife were paramount in the design of the fourteen luxury villas.
Situated within the Petanu River valley, one of Bali's holy rivers, the emphasis is on the nature of the river and the jungle. With direct access to clean natural swimming and the soothing sounds of constant flowing water, the jungle site is a plateau with dramatic views across and along the river, already rich and densely vegetated with coconuts, palms, exotic fruit and abundance of advanced native trees. Natural springs abound in this haven of peace and tranquility.
Located 3 kms. North East from the center of Ubud, the artistic and cultural center of Bali, is the traditional Balinese Village of Laplapan, seemingly untouched by the hands of time. Here Natura has been conceived, a new concept in environmentally aware guest accommodation.
Natura Resort and Spa was designed for energy efficient building and eco friendly buildings.
