Rumah Purnama, “The House of the Full Moon” in Bahasa Indonesia, is a heritage Balinese wantilan house. It was recently fully restored and renovated to encompass the luxuries of modernity while retaining the charm of Bali’s bohemian heyday.

The Campuhan village is known for its temple, Pura Gunung Lebah, located nearby where two mystical rivers unite. Meanwhile, Rumah Purnama sits facing the Campuhan Ridge on land that has long been occupied. Spiritually significant to the Balinese Hindus as an energy centre, this area has long been a source of inspiration for artists and still holds the gentle enchantment of a bygone era.

In the shade of the centennial coconut trees and under a thatched roof, this charming three-bedroom home boasts spectacular jungle and moonrise views across the sacred Campuhan Ridge, a reminiscent of 100-year-old Walter Spies’ influential paintings.

The 12-month restoration process revealed a series of regeneration of homes on the site, with elements in the foundation possibly going back over 100 years. Rumah Purnama is a continuous 100-year-old love story between a magical spot on the land and the people who fell in love with it, as well as a reminder of how transient our lives are, measured only by what we leave behind.
