SUSTAINABILITY

Reforestation & Reef Restoration

ONLY BY GIVING ARE YOU ABLE TO RECEIVE MORE THAN YOU ALREADY HAVE

At Sumberkima Hill Retreat, we uphold the principles of sustainability, conducting our business with people, planet and profit in mind. Our villas are privately owned by individuals from all around the world, all of whom have one thing in common: a deep love for this pristine corner of Bali. With that love comes a sense of preservation and protection far into the future. We do our best to grow in harmony with the environment and the community that lives here and works with us.

Reef restoration

Metamorfosa is a reef restoration project in the bay that has unique features like an underwater art gallery and a wish tree!

Metamorfosa is a locally run project that is restoring the reef and reforesting the hills in Sumberkima. We work together with the villagers to help them shift towards more sustainable livelihoods like sea farming and ecotourism so that the ecological balance can be maintained and a steady income can be generated. Supported by scientists and experts, Metamorfosa aims to be a pilot project for the rest of Indonesia.

Reforestation Project

We are working to restore the arid hillside to its green glory so that the village can continue to grow from it.

Together with Kadek Wiran (the Banjar Chief), the villagers, local school children and The Sumberkima Hill Retreat we are working on reforesting the hills of Sumberkima! Kadek and our neighbours will take care of watering the trees in the dry season during the first 3 years. After that they will be strong enough to survive on their own!

HELP US SUSTAIN THE ECOSYSTEM OF SUMBERKIMA 

WE WANT OUR IMPACT TO BE A POSITIVE ONE SO THAT BOTH NATURE AND COMMUNITY CAN THRIVE.

PLANT A TREE

Metamorfosa 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!

Sponsor a 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.

LOCAL ENGLISH CLASS

We have also started English classes in the village to make the larger world more accessible for the children. Our concern is not limited to our villas alone but extends to all of Sumberkima – the bay, the reef, the mountains and the people we share this paradise with.
