Guesthouse (closed)

Our  traditional guest house features an alang alang roof and is built on two levels. Set amidst lush gardens, Villa Kropak commands a magnificent view of the surrounding countryside. The gate at the entrance features hand painted images of shadow puppets, drawn from the ancient Indonesian art form of story telling  in which intricate, hand crafted one dimensional puppets  are held between a light source and a screen to cast a  shadows of the characters which feature in the show. Shadow puppet theatre, Wayang kulit is thought to be about 2000 years old and  usually tells the age-old epic tale of the Ramayana. Our Villa Kropak logo was inspired by the Kayon wayan, the  central element in Indonesian shadow puppet theatre and we have used locally hand made shadow puppets to create a decorative gallery in the hallway of our  guesthouse.
