Walking bridge joins Echo and Pererenan beaches

Plans are made, adjusted and negotiated, and then finally the workers are called so that something real comes of the plans. In this case its a lovely walking trail and bridge that connects two beaches.

The first of two bridge support runs are in place. The view across to Echo Beach.

Up close and personal with half of the bridge support. The view across to Pererenan Beach.

On the Echo Beach side there’s a lovely, curving path that leads to local food vendors, the famed La Brisa restaurant, and seafood grill operators.

Back at Pererenan Beach, only 800 meters from Ohana, workers are finishing up the concrete tile floor for a semi-circular welcome area. This entire project is shaping up nicely.


In a few more days, a (partial) roof

A roof means many things, and with the rainy season approaching it simply means keeping the crew and the interior spaces dry. To be ready for a February opening we need to get ahead of the wet season.

This upcoming roof pouring (of concrete) will also be a ceiling for two guest bedrooms.

Because the building has a partial basement, the roof has two elevations: a lower one for the residential side and a higher one for the two upstairs guest apartments.

A rooftop bar is planned for guests only. By keeping the future poolside warung (cafe) and the rooftop bar private we don’t need business permits. They are facilities allowed as part of a Pondak Wisata license (a homestay with guest rentals and services).

The breezes that blow across the roof will be a welcome relief from the tropical heat. Having some shade, an ocean breeze, and a freshly made cocktail or beer will be a total delight!
