Bali Ginger Suites is owned and managed by husband and wife; Grahame and Lou.

Before moving to Bali they both worked as professional theatre artists in Australia for more than 20 years, Grahame as a Director/Writer and Lou as a Designer/Production Manager. Their theatre work toured extensively around Australia as well as internationally to countries including Indonesia, Singapore, Canada, USA, Japan, Korea, Russia and Mexico.

Inspired to create theatre that highlighted environmental issues, they travelled throughout Borneo and Sumatra researching about the plight of orangutans in 1990, eventually developing Visiting The Relatives as a theatre production. Visiting The Relatives was rehearsed, written and designed in the steamy jungles of Northern Sumatra, “on location” at an orangutan rehabilitation centre in 1992. This unique development process was challenging and innovative, and would eventually lead to projects about elephants (Ivory Circle, created in Thailand in 1993) and bears (Deliverance of Dancing Bears, written and designed in Turkey in 1995). Visiting The Relatives opened in Perth to sold out seasons and critical acclaim, and subsequently toured nationally and internationally over a 5 year period, making it one of Australia’s most successful theatre productions.

In 1990 one of their tours took them via Bali and after that they just kept on coming back until it became an annual visit. During a couple of these visits Grahame began writing and Lou designing two of their most successful touring productions, ‘Frog Opera’ which premiered at the International Theatre Festival in Perth and  ‘Silverfish’ which ended up touring to Korea.

With 1 son grown up and married and the second still in primary school they took the opportunity to move to Bali and make it their home in 2007. They hope to bring that same creativity and flair to their life in Bali. Grahame thrives on the challenge of designing and building in Bali whilst Lou is passionate about creating memorable moments for visitors and takes care of much of the detail and finishing design.

Grahame and Lou are delighted to have brought that same flair and creativity to their new life in Bali, and they hope it shows in Bali Ginger Suites. They wanted to create an inspiring environment for fun and relaxation while enjoying your time in the amazing place that is Bali. The property has many things about it that contribute positively to the environment, ranging from utilising the recycled, antique houses that form the core of the Shikumen Villa and Suite, to the beautiful bamboo linen that dresses your bed.
