When its time for sleep, bedrooms are foundupstairs by way of aspiral staircase. Roofs are thatched and much of the original jungle growth has been leftundisturbed so the huts appear out of them, as if by magic. Stairway to heaven: inside one of the villas Lead architect, Miles Humphreys, with bamboo specialist architects Chiko Wirahadi and Ketut Indra Saptura formed theinnovative, architectural team. Villashave been constructed from bamboo and alangalonggrass, with sustainable design at the forefront of the project. The materials - usually associated with more 'bare-foot' (dare I say it, hippy-style) buildings, have beencrafted with agroundbreaking eye, resulting in acutting-edge design. Recycled teak, lava stone, petrified wood, and bronze add to the textural qualities and ramp up the luxe factor. The whole effect is sleek, modern and very impressive. Cempedak Island Based about 50 miles away from Singapore, in the South China Sea, the resort offers Dixon's celebrated low-key luxe style but has put sustainability at the forefront.Each of the plunge pools, for instance, aremaintained with concentrated salt water, generated by the desalination process used to convert seawater to drinking water for the resort.The restaurants open kitchen haswalls built from locally salvaged granite andthe island has a wastewater garden, a string of beds filled with papyrus plants and Poaceae grasses. When wastewater passes through the roots of these plants, they extract toxins and clean the water so it can be reused for irrigation. An innovative view: all villas look out to the ocean A highlight of the place is the moody, black bamboo, two-storey bar - it's set to be aninspiring place to sip a sundowner when it opens.
