at Kuta-Legian Beach
Outrigger O~CE~N offers you the best location in Bali for owning a beautiful apartment in the first luxury apartment complex on the beach!
This property photography has been a bit different from our usual commercial shoot, Bali needs very little introduction, well known for its great beaches, gentle people and amazing colorful culture and tradition.
The privately owned O-CE-N Bali is very different from most other places in Bali, incorporating modern architecture and a touch of prehistoric times through out the property. O-CE-N @ http://www.o-ce-n.com/

Ammonite Fossils are on display in most rooms but at the Long Bar you see them in their full glory set into backlit Onyx which has been added on as an extension of this fossil.

with the amazing Marble in the foreground
At the entrance to one of the RESTAURANTS you can’t miss this fantastic backlit piece of marble cut so thin that it is transparent, an eye catcher at night.
Through out the whole property you see master pieces of stone craft and the occasional fossil.
However there is one piece of fossilized seabed which measures some 2 x 1.2 meters that really took my attention, a fantastic showcase of Ammonites in their evolution stage, in all my years I have never seen such a beautiful piece. Original intended for the property but it ended up in the hands of my good friend Thomas who did some of the interior designs and furnishing of the O-CE-N Bali.

some 2x1.2 meters. By the way this unique
piece is for sale if you interested.

In contrast to all these stones and fossils each room has a sound system (iHome) with an iPod (Nano) which you can get from the reception or bring your own, like I did.

I helped in organizing these iPods and mention this in one of my earlier Blogs they where bought and engraved from the Apple Center in Jakarta, plus I gave Thomas a little “crash course” on Fossils hence my background in Paleontology.
Now my assistant Hermes Singson and myself saw for the first time the final outcome of this true remarkable property. So if you in Bali next time, go down to Kuta-Legian Beach and check it out or even better have a drink at sunset while the Ammonites looking over your shoulder.
Hungry? Not a problem, the O-CE-N has some of the best food on the beach and soon their new Seafood Restaurant gives you the best choice of Seafood available in Bali.
PS.Hang five for the next Blog as we continue the Colors of Bali, traveling through the country side, plus Aperture 2 field setup...
