Sarinbuana Bali Eco Lodge is a pioneering example of sustainable tourism on the rain forested slopes of central Bali, Indonesia. Our bungalows are emersed in a one-hectare permaculture garden and food forest, which has been nurtured for over 30 years by the lodge family.

We’ve always operated by following the three core principles of environmental, social and economic sustainability, to ensure our presence is not creating a strain on the natural or built environment around us. The lodge supports our community by providing a platform for the sharing of local knowledge through guided rainforest walks and traditional workshops.

We offer an alternative to conventional accommodation by designing our bungalows into the natural environment, minimising our impact while also maximising the guest experience in nature. In doing so we hope to provide an economically viable example of small-scale tourism, which directly benefits and regenerates local communities and the environment.

Although we’re small, by applying a similar model of tourism around the world, we could all have a notable impact in the fight to preserve nature’s beauty. In our opinion, businesses need to be actively involved in regenerating their local environment to allow for the possibility of a truly sustainable future.
