OUR STORY

Stone House is the brainchild of owner and founder Nyoman Sukanata, a kind Balinese man, designer extraordinaire Walker Zabriskie and his free-spirited, life partner, Wendy Kassel. Together, their dream was to provide a truly intimate experience in their ‘soul country’. A stunning place where you can live amongst the most beautiful people and interesting culture in the world

A few years ago, while on holiday, Walker Zabriskie, an American furniture designer based in Bali, had an epiphany — a life-changing moment. Walker and his family were staying at a small hotel on the beach. The landscaping was lush and tropical, hammocks slung between palm trees and there was a large, communal table where guests dined together every evening. In the morning they were strangers…

BY NIGHTFALL THEY SOON BECAME FRIENDS

getting to know each other, swapping stories over dinner. It was simple, yet beautiful with an overlying sense of calm. It was a homey place that guests raved about when they got home and came back to year after year. In collaboration with his dear, old friend, Nyoman Sukanata, Walker knew that one day he would open a hotel just like it…..one that was all about the experience and the people you meet.

THE INSPIRATION OF A LIFELONG DREAM

 

This idea, coupled with the inspiration of a lifelong dream, the Stone House began as a passion for all things beautiful; gardens, textures, colours, materials and the exotic. Stone House is a sophisticated interpretation of age-old Balinese building methods balanced with modern sensibilities. Walker provided the guidance, design and a few years and many grey hairs later, the Stone House is made up of three individual suites….. ideal for a family or a group of friends, thus creating an air of exclusivity.
