Jadul Village

After visiting the craft bazaar - as hubby couldn't stand the traffic jam in Bandung on weekend - we went to Sapu Lidi Restaurant for a late lunch, and spend the rest of the weekend at Jadul Village Resort in Lembang.

I will share here about the latter. The name Jadul itself is short for JAman DUlu, freely translated into old times. Actually I wasn't expect too much at first, since it looked rather bland from the parking area. But how I was wrong. Upon entering the open lobby, there greeted me various antique ethnic decor. The lobby itself is a Joglo house, so are all the villas there which all adapted Java vernacular architecture.

We stayed in Gebyok Villa, and was very pleased with the ethnic feel combined with modern vanities.

The open air bath was a feast for the senses!

As I explore more of the premises I became even more overwhelmed with the intricate details. There are many elements that are being reused, like old wooden train track which used for pathways and old doors for the powder rooms. They give strong eclectic characters with a rustic feel.

Overall, I can say that staying in Jadul Village was a very pleasant experience.. now if only they could do something to the parking area so it doesn't look bland.
