Guy Morgan has lived and worked in Indonesia for more than 25 years, designing beautiful properties for dreamers. His love for Indonesia is pre-eminent in his life. From studying architecture at Adelaide University, Guy has traversed the world designing buildings that work with the environment and for his clients. Guy now divides his time between Sydney,Australia and Seseh, Bali where he oversees not only his architectural business but his successful villa paradise Tamu Seseh.

Passionate about preserving what is Balinese, balancing it with modern living while navigating building on a remote island, Guy reveals all that is required to make a dream to build in Bali a reality.
Working together with his friend, writer and PR extraordinaire Lynne Payne, Guy has compiled his experience into a book that will inspire dreamers, inform doers, and demystify much of the process of turning a vision of tropical paradise into a reality.
Lynne Payne (co-author) has previously co-authored a book “Advance to Go” with a young entrepreneurial business woman which is due to go into second reprint and is selling as an eBook. She is delighted to have been invited to assist Guy (a long standing friend from her teenage years in Adelaide) in sharing his knowledge and infinite expertise in making living a dream a reality in Bali. Now living in Melbourne, Australia she has visited Guys’ projects and experienced firsthand his design work that can make any one experience Bali on a whole new level. So impressed with his vision and previous work balancing the environment, economics and beautiful design to create luxury her family has invested in Guy’s Lombok land dream – a whole new chapter.
