Bali Eco stay is a small eco retreat, currently with only six guest bungalows and a restaurant.
Our goal was to create a sustainable business incorporating permaculture principles, aquaculture, hydro electric power, traditional building and rice growing techniques.
We employ local villagers to design, build, maintain and help run the retreat.
Australian hosts John & Cath Blundstone and son Huey, came to Bali in November 2009 on a holiday and fell in love with Mt Batukaru.
"We were so inspired by mountain life that we packed up our lives in Australia and moved over in March 2010. Nine months later, we opened doors for business on the 27th of December 2010"".
"There are very few, really eco friendly businesses in Bali and the island is in need of all the help it can get.
"We wish to tread as lightly as possible on our land and set an example using all the principles mentioned above"
The Blundstone's are passionate about all things eco and have created a stunning and successful model of how eco tourism can work for the benefit of all.
This is an amazing opportunity to experience life in a genuine village culture in a beautiful unspoiled part of the island.
