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.  


Our story began... 

A  Special Tribute

To our Balinese family, who made our  journey possible  - Starting 25 years ago - still with us today...

Our Local Team

The lodges wonderful dedicated team, most have been with us for over 10 years.

We only employ staff from our local villages, building capacity where experience is not available
