Our Lodge started 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.

Our land started with only coconut trees and grasslands for Bali cows.

In the year 2000 we put down roots, built our first bungalow, homeschooled our 2 boys & started working with our local community to share our knowledge in the hospitality industry, while bringing  our Permaculture & Organic farming background into real practice. 

 

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. 

 

Our Local staff & community have put their heart & soul into the lodge for years, to help create the lodge as it is today.

 Thank you so much for being on this journey with us! 

 

Our Lodge wasn't planned to be a business, it evolved slowly & organically, 

as like minded people wanted to come to share in our experience.
