Discover Full House Villa, Bali


A favorite destination for bohemians from all walks of life — adored by some, decried by others — Bali still embodies a certain idea of ​​elsewhere .
Located in Ubud, on the high plateaus of the island, Rumah Purnama is a magnificent century-old building, recently renovated by the architect-designer Maximilian Jencquel . Beautiful, authentic, soothing — the Villa is a haven of peace to rent for a gentle wandering on the island of the Gods .Photography: Tommaso Riva , Studio Jencquel – Editorial: Renaud Bonnet

Full House Villa, Ubud (Bali)

This century-old Balinese house, with discreet luxury, blends harmoniously into its natural environment. Tropical woods, volcanic stone, lush vegetation,… help create a soothing space of great beauty. A door, somewhat enigmatic in wood and freestone, marks the entrance to the property.

Full House Villa, Ubud (Bali)

The villa was bought in 2018 by architect and designer Maximilian Jencquel. A full year is needed to “regenerate” the building and write the rest of its history. Skillfully combining Balinese craftsmanship and contemporary design, Maximilian offers its guests spaces of great elegance.© Photographs Courtesy Tommaso Riva, Studio Jencquel“The Villa faces East and embraces the Moon as it often rises on the horizon behind the jungle covered hills. To the northeast, Gunung Agung, Bali’s sacred volcano, fills the horizon with grace, power and beauty.”Jencquel studio

Full House Villa, Ubud (Bali)

A chromatic palette, both simple and subtle, enriches the color variations of tropical woods. Marbles, textiles, rugs and handicrafts create a chic atmosphere — without heaviness or excess. Maximilian’s work on light is just as delicate. Bright, the Villa invites its guests to contemplation and rest.

Full House Villa, Ubud (Bali)

Nestled in the middle of lush vegetation, “the House of the Full Moon” offers beautiful views of the Agung, the sacred volcano of Bali. The exterior tropical setting dialogues perfectly with the earthy tones and natural motifs of the interiors.

“Simplicity is a hard thing to achieve”

“I discovered Bali at the end of the seventies. It was an absolutely unique place, without equal. There were a lot of babas and hippies there. But the real shock was the Balinese culture — delicate and sensual, the beauty of the landscapes, the inhabitants and of course the flavors of the island. (…)
Bali is still a very unique island even if mass tourism has made wrong. Look carefully, what are you looking for when you come to Bali? (…)
The quest for beauty in Balinese culture runs deep and breathes life into everyday life. ”Anthony Bourdain. Chef, author, documentary filmmaker — Excerpt from interview New York Times April 2012

Slightly removed from the urban exuberance of Ubud, Villa Rumah Purnama has recently opened its doors to travellers. This beautiful Balinese mansion from the 1930s, bought by architect-designer Maximilian Jencquel  — was first renovated and then transformed into a three-bedroom guest house.
In the heart of lush vegetation, offering a spectacular view of the jungle, the Villa is a finely thought-out space, dedicated to rest and contemplation.

For a year, the architect meticulously regenerated each space by infusing a fine selection of materials, textures and colors — in keeping with vernacular architecture. At the same time minimalist, contemporary and largely infused by the Balinese art of living, the Villa is a delicate address, able to seduce the aesthete traveller.

The three bedrooms, one on the ground floor, two others upstairs, respect the standards of contemporary hotels. Each one has its own history and dressing, giving the space a discreet and relaxed elegance.

The Villa offers all the necessary comfort and allows you to live independently during your stay. A kitchen, a living room, a dining room as well as a swimming pool enhance daily life. A cooking service on request allows you to benefit from a chef at each meal. As well as massage treatments and yoga sessions are possible by reservation.

Rumah Purnama is a rare address by the very beauty of its architecture and the sensitivity of its design — but atypical by its historical heritage.

The main frame of the house is concrete; however the upper part is made of bangkirai, an indonesian hardwood. Maximilian wanted to keep the original structure of this Campuhan house (1930s), like an architectural legacy of Ubud’s heritage.
