Construction on Floating Leaf nearing completion

As we enter the final month of construction for Floating Leaf, we wanted to provide you with an update. Lead architect, Agung Adi, tells us we are ahead of schedule and once construction is completed we will begin on finishing, furnishing and landscaping. A team of master Balinese carpenters is being brought in to complete the unique and massive signature roof for the yoga hall. For more details including photos and updates please see the new Construction Update Blog PostYou can see all previous updates from this link as well.
