A GREEN SANCTUARY IN THE HEART OF BALI

 

Nestled in its very own luscious green valley, Bali Eco Stay is surrounded by fresh water springs and pure mountain streams that cascade down a twelve-meter waterfall into a rock pool of profound beauty. The resort is surrounded by towering food forests and sculptured rice terraces, and sits 480 metres above sea level, thus creating refreshing temperatures that are at least 5 to 10 degrees cooler than the coasts of Bali.

 

Bali Eco Stay takes its ethos of treading lightly upon the earth very seriously, without compromising on the comfort of guests. Upon arriving in this mystical setting, you will indulge in all that nature has to offer, with fresh authentic food, breath-taking landscapes and vistas, cooling temperatures with mountain breezes and fresh rock pools. Go and rediscover your sense of equilibrium and reconnect with nature.

WHAT TO EXPECT

 

JUNGLE SLEEPING: With open-air overwater bungalows, enjoy ever changing and vibrantly coloured views of rice paddies, mountain streams, food forests as far as the eye can reach and even the sea. By night, drift to sleep to the soothing chorus of tropical jungle sounds and flowing water.

 

GARDEN DINING: Indulge in organically grown food at Bali Eco Stay restaurant to rediscover the pure taste of fruits, vegetables, freshwater fish and pasture raised organic chicken. Enjoy bursting flavours of authentic Balinese home cooking prepared with love and respect for nature.

NATURE LIVING: Jungle playground for the curious at heart! Get off the beaten track and forget about city life. Lounge in freshwater rock pools, learn traditional crafts with our Kakek (grandfather), and explore untouched landscapes and villages either by foot, bike or scooter.

THE BUNGALOWS: Sleeping in nature – choose a romantic bungalow for two or a large family bungalow

ECO SENSATIONS: Unspoiled Water, Food and Air

FOOD: Fed on fresh coconut, organic greens and heritage rice, their free-range chickens plough away at our compost, which they use to nourish the soil of their food garden. They grow a wide range of fruit and vegetables. No chemical fertilisers or pesticides are used.

​​

WATER: Directly sourced from Mount Batukaru, their filtered spring water is packed with minerals and nutrients, making it the purest water you will ever drink in Bali. You can even drink it straight from their taps. No chemicals needed, just pure natural goodness.​​

THE BEGINNINGS
 

Australians Cath and John Blundstone, with their Balinese family Mini and Agung, joined forces to create Bali Eco Stay. Their vision was to design the property as a working model of sustainability, and a beautiful place where rice paddies meet the jungle. Feeling largely unfulfilled with the treadmill existence of western life, their family embarked on a journey in search of new horizons.  Tney camped throughout Australia for four months, and during their travels they met Norm and Linda VantHoff, an Australian couple on holiday from Bali, who had created Sarinbuana Eco Lodge – a stunning eco accommodation. Their incredible stories inspired them to visit later that year, in their mountain lodge back in Bali.

 

They were delighted by the prospect of a nature based business opportunity in which they could practice conservation and sustainability, and perhaps just as importantly, utiliize John’s extensive hospitality expertise and Cath's passion for horticulture. Norm and Linda helped to make this a reality by working with them and sharing their incredible skills and expertise in sustainable tourism, which enabled them to bring Bali Eco Stay to life.


"We were blessed to find this valley with its memerising beauty and natural spring water, our landowners, and fantastic local staff. It is hugely rewarding to be able to inspire locals and guests to live more sustainably, caring for nature as she provides and nurtures us."

JOINTLY OWNED AND LOVED
 

Their staff and the local community are part of their family. It's their kindness, hard work and commitment to making Bali Eco Stay truly unique in all that it offers, and more importantly it makes it feel like a home for their guests.

 

The land on which they have built Bali Eco Stay has been leased for 50 years. Their Balinese landowners have retained ownership of their property but have also become an integral part of the business, working as office manager and restaurant manager. This means they have a personal interest in making the resort an incredible place to stay, as this is also their home.

 

They worked with local farmers to build an extensive network of established access paths throughout the resort to enable them to reach their rice paddies and temples whilst preserving the landscape.
