Last weekend I happened to stop at this place for a couple of hours. Dont ask me why or how, but I was there smile Its located in Ciganjur, half hour off of Cilandak. How to get there is a bit tedious, which is probably why many would give up trying to find it smile

Its on a 1 ha land, consisting of main building (or actually a house) and several small ones, ex cow barn turned to a sitting area plus a room on the second floor, a small restaurant, a small ceramic workshop and huge garden with a small river (almost as small as a ditch, but it's a river).
The outdoor consists of many varieties of trees and plantations and some them are quite unique. The most interesting characteristics of this place is the use of many of the owner's artwork indoor and outdoor. The owner happens to be a well known ceramic artist in the country.
He also is a painter and sculpturer. His works are recently featured in the local Esquire magazine. The artist himself designed the place and i found it to be a very beautiful, serene and artistic (aesthetically artistic for an amateur art lover like myself, not weird artistic) destination to bring your family to.

The place is open for public with only Rp5000 admission fee. The visitors are free to take a look a the entire premises and even enter every room (or bedroom) that is there.

More pics.

Notice the use of the artist's work all over the place. Indoor and Outdoor. AS for the painting of the walls he did them himself.

The strange creatures which wander in from the jungle outside can be very interesting.
