Things to do

Sumberkima Hill is a perfect place to relax and wind down, but if you want to see more of Bali, there are many options to choose from:

Romance

The villas offer a romantic setting, with a beautiful garden, under water loungers in the pool overlooking the infinity edge towards a spectacular view. You can watch amazing sunsets from your swing bed on the veranda. A cook can make a private dinner for you at the villa, or we can organize special settings, like a moonlight dinner on a white coral sand island. You can take a boat trip around the bay, land on secluded beaches and have a picnic. Guaranteed to generate beautiful memories.

Culture

The Sumberkima area is one of the places from where Hinduism spread through Bali. You will find some of the oldest and most important temples here like the Pulaki and Melanting temple. But also smaller temples at spectacular locations in the jungle or on the hills. Here you can experience the way the Balinese celebrate their culture and religion away from the tourist crowds. Especially at night the ceremonies at the temples are wonderful and the Balinese people welcome you to participate.

At selected evenings we organize performances by the local dance group. You can also be invited to one of the many ceremonies at peoples homes and participate in a wedding, a 3 months celebration of a new baby, a tooth filing or cremation. The religious calendar of Bali is extensive and you can select dates to experience events like Galungan, Ogoh Ogoh and Nyepi day.

Ask for our guest information book to read about the different temples in the area.

Adventure

Sumberkima is a good base for adventures with the sea and the jungle on our doorstep. It is one of the best places in Bali for diving and snorkelling with Menjangan Island in the Barat National Park and the Biorock project in Pemuteran, the largest reef restoration project in the world. One of the safest places to learn to dive and get your PADI. Sumberkima Bay also has a beautiful reef Sumberkima to explore, waters are shallow and there is almost no current.

You can also take a boat and go fishing, visit the fish farms and explore the small islands and the various bays in the area

Our staff can organize snorkeling and diving trips in the area for you. You can join a group or go by private boat. In case you want to go diving or get your PADI, we have an excellent dive instructor who has top quality equipment, knows all the good spots in the area and is also an extremely nice guy to be with. He can come to your villa to discuss your wishes.

You can also trek inland and go on a jungle tour or visit the Barat National Park. Check out some of the most spectacular waterfalls in Bali. 

A great trip is to go over to Java early in the morning and climb Kawa Ijen, a volcano with amazing scenery and sulfur miners that carry 80 kg buckets with sulfur out of the crater. At night you can see the blue fire and then watch sunrise.

However, simply walking around Sumberkima or using a mountain bike is a perfect way to see this part of Bali. Sumberkima offers a great variety in landscape, rice paddies, jungle, beaches, coconut groves and mangrove. And above all wonderful hospitable friendly people.

Please ask for our guest information book where you can find a lot of information about different tours.
