Pavillions


A pavilion is traditionally known as a Bale in the Balinese language and is loosely translated into Australian slang as a Bali Hut. At Balistyle we build pavilions, not huts and therefore keep them as traditional and authentic as possible however built completely to the Australian Building Codes. Our pavilions range anything from basic backyard models to cyclonic wind rated models.

Our designs are based on the "Bale Bengong" comprising four posts, a platform and hip roof which is used traditionally for relaxing and various ceremonies. The "Bale Gede" using the same concept, is constructed with up to 12 posts and is used for larger ceremonies and banquets. They can be found in all parts of the Lesser Sunda Islands including Bali, Lombok and neighbouring islands.

Our “Pondok” pavilion range was created from the traditionally used Pondok of Indonesian rice farmers as a retreat from the heat of the day. Next time you are in Bali you will notice these small shelters in the middle of the rice fields.

When finished with Alang-Alang roofing, the pavilion is the centrepiece of any tropical garden or pool area. In western society uses for the pavilion are only limited by imagination. For example why not install a spa pool, cover with cushions to create a simple shady resting place, a shady cover for your summertime BBQs or a total outdoor living area with kitchen and lounge suite.
