Experience North West Bali

EMBRACE AUTHENTICITY AND ADVENTURE 

THE LESSER KNOWN SIDE OF BALI

From temple tours to yoga classes, from barbecues on White Sand Island to visits to Barat National Park, from cooking classes with the talented Chef Suma to village walks where you can get to know our community better – we will ensure that your experience in Sumberkima leaves you inspired, rejuvenated and joyful!

DIVING & SNORKELING

Explore the growing marine life around our underwater art gallery in the bay of Sumberkima.
This vibrant ecosystem, when combined with soft waves and gentle currents makes it the best spot to go diving or snorkelling! From Sumberkima Bay to Pulau Menjangan and the Biorock structures in Pemuteran; there’s a lot to discover!

CANOE & BOAT TRIPS

Learn about the mangrove forests that protect us, paddle out to the white sand island and witness sparkling sunsets.
The best way to explore these little wonders is with Metamorfosa’s canoe or boat trips. You can explore the area and visit the mangroves, fish farms or enjoy a barbecue on the island. During sunset and sunrise, the sky is ablaze with colours!

HIKE & VILLAGE WALK

Our local chief, Kadek Wiran will take you on a guided walk to temples, back country and villages!
We encourage you to spend an afternoon or two walking or biking through the village, interacting with the locals and taking in the rich landscape – the mountains, valleys, sea, coconut groves and paddy fields!

TEMPLES & CEREMONIES

The area has a rich cultural heritage with ancient temples and colourful ceremonies galore
The Balinese calendar is full of ceremonies that are celebrated extensively and the temples are ancient, intricate and splendid.

ISLAND BARBECUE ON WHITE SAND ISLAND

The gorgeous island of Gili Putih is the ideal place to bond with your companions. We can tailor make a day on the island for you that involves everything from beach barbecues, live music, bonfire, sunset cocktails and even yoga sessions. It’s not every day that you get to spend the evening on your very own island paradise!

WATERFALL TREKS

Spend the day in the jungle with beautiful cascades all around you!  With 7 waterfalls and several treks of varying difficulty, our guides will ensure that you enjoy the excursion with just the right amount of adrenaline!

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE

We PROVIDE GUIDED TOURS & DAYTRIPS

CLIMBING KAWA IJEN

The most impressive Indonesian volcano is Kawah Ijen (2,600m) on Eastern Java with its turquoise-colored acid crater lake and active sulphur mine. The track to the crater is about 3 km of which only 1.5km is a bit of a steep climb. The view at the top of the mountain is breathtaking!

BALI BARAT NATIONAL PARK

Barat National Park is an ecological marvel – a mountainous stretch with primary monsoon forest, mangrove forest, lowland rainforest, savannah, sea grass vegetation, coral reefs and so much more! Together with a guide, you can explore the beautiful flora & fauna of this park.

TURTLE HATCHERIES

You can visit the turtle hatchery at Reef Seen on Pemuteran Beach which protects living sea turtles as well as their eggs. For a small donation, you can visit the project and hear their story. You can even sponsor the care of a juvenile turtle and release it into the sea yourself!

EXPERIENCES AT THE RETREAT

WALKING DISTANCE

YOGA SHALA

Our yoga shala has the most breathtaking views all around. Whether you are new to yoga or a blooming yogi, we will ensure that your practice benefits from your sessions here. With a focus on Hatha yoga, our wonderful teacher Dian holds classes for beginners. Guided by her, in the midst of greenery and sea views, you will learn to find your flow and understand the needs of your body.

TRADITIONAL COOKING CLASS WITH SUMA

Our gifted chef Suma is a culinary genius with a talent for creating new special every day! A cooking class with him opens the doors to the mysteries of traditional Balinese cooking. From teaching you about the exotic herbs and spices to helping you prepare a lunch or evening meal to taking you to the market to purchase the ingredients.

SPA TREATMENT

When in Bali, restoring your energies and rejuvenating body and soul are of great importance! We have a range of affordable spa treatments to enhance your experience, from beauty therapies for your skin and hair to cleansing massages and reflexology. We have several experienced practitioners to work their magic on you, blending modern and ancient methods of healing.

PLANT A TREE

Metamorfosa (our giving back project) is attempting to plant as many trees as possible.

As part of the reforestation mission, you can sponsor a tree of your choice to be planted on Sumberkima Hill. The tree that you plant will be connected to you by a what3words code so that you can see its exact location on the map! How cool is that? Adopt a tree, save a hill!

BABY CORAL

Our goal is to restore the reef in a way that helps the village of Sumberkima flourish economically too.

By developing the area as a hub for ecotourism, we hope to bring sustainable success to the region.
