Starting as a simple private getaway for our family, in the remote mountains of Bali for Norm from
Australia & Linda from New Zealand
No electricity, No spoken english, No sealed roads.
Surrounded by nature and nurtured by a few local subsistence farming families.
The land started with only coconut trees and grasslands for Bali cows.
In the year 2000 we put down roots, our Balinese family built the first bungalow
Every plant you will see at the lodge was planted to create a diverse food forest for our family & guests. to enjoy
garden to the table meals.
No chemicals are used in our gardens, kitchen or rooms.
The Local staff & community have put their heart & soul into creating the lodge for years,
Thank you so much for being on this journey!
The Lodge wasn't planned to be a business, it evolved slowly & organically,
as like minded people wanted to come to share in our experience.
