Responsible tourism: Eco lodge accommodation in Bali

This is the first small hotel to be eco certified by Green Globe in Indonesia.

We have developed environmentally friendly buildings with the use of solar power for hot water, an extensive rain water storage system, and the use of a biological sewage treatment plant where all waste water is returned to the gardens through irrigation, a recycling rubbish system and employ only local people.

One of the end results is the beautiful gardens (for example we have 22 types of bougainvillea in the gardens). The university has also granted us a protected area where an attempt is made to protect all birds, butterflies, wildlife and plants. There is a large and diverse number of birds and butterflies recorded in the grounds of The Lodge.

The lodge is considered an "eco hotel" because it fulfils the six main components of eco tourism, namely:
- depends on the natural environment
- is ecologically sustainable
- is proven to contribute to conservation
- features an environmental training program
- incorporates cultural considerations
- provides a net economic return to the local community.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Treetop dining area. Great outdoor pool. Two trips. Friendly and helpful staff.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


If you come in the rainy season (about Oct to Feb), expect mosquitoes! But the lodge does supply lotion, netting and coils. If you like the experience of few other guests and personal service, do come in the rainy season!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?


This was an Eco lodge, which protects the local environment and employs local people, so a definite yes here

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


Swimming, reading, and relaxing by the pool at the resort. Taking a little trip to the beach and having a drink over looking the ocean.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


The staff was wonderful, the food was great, close to the airport, beautiful grounds, and nice rooms.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes. All the staff were local. The lodge seemed to be part of the landscape, rather than the other way around. Lots of critters (birds, butterflies, frogs) lived on the grounds--that says something.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


Great spot to stay for 2 days. Close to the airport and activities in the tourist area of Bali (Kuta, etc.), but far enough away to enjoy nature.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?


The ecolodge was very comfortable with friendly hosts who were able to tell us a lot about the wildlife of Indonesia. South Bali has been rather spoiled but you can get away from the traffic and tourists here in the Jimbaran Hills and take taxis to sample all the amazing beaches have to offer - surfing, windsurfing, snorkeling, fish restaurants, etc. Or just swim in the pool which has a fantastic view over to the mainland.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?


Jimbaran Beach is half an hour's walk away and there's a steep climb back up to the lodge. Be prepared to pay for taxis to the beaches unless you're content with the pool and large wildlife garden and also for traffic jams through Kuta and Jimbaran. The lodge and surrounds are beautiful and peaceful though.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


The ecolodge employed well trained, friendly local staff and was obviously committed to high standards of environmental management. This is just one of a number of ecolodges in Indonesia under the same ownership with amazing access to rare wildlife but I'm not sure how much wildlife is left in South Bali. As a combination holiday with another ecolodge it really worked for us - we did the beaches and the markets from this ecolodge and then enjoyed the peace and wildlife of the mountain and Bali village life at the other ecolodge.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?


The best holiday we've ever had, particularly the elements booked through responsibletravel.com - they were the highlights and we'll definitely be looking through your catalogues again.

I stayed the first night at this accommodation - people friendly and helpful - gardens nice to explore and for those of you who want a pool they have one in a nice setting and lovely library of books. Did not experience any of their excursions so cannot comment other than it was a quiet place well away from the busy beaches and would be nice to return to at the end of the day at the beach.
