Set in a small traditional Balinese village amongst tranquil rice fields, the retreat is far from the traffic, pollution and crowds of tourist packed southern Bali, but still conveniently only 30 minutes from the airport. Overlooking Holy Mount Agung Volcano and the Indian Ocean, the retreat is made up of well appointed modern villas, a yoga centre, two spas and a permaculture garden and is loving run by husband and wife team: Mikaku and Putu. A stay on your own, as a family or as a small group is sure to leave you feeling relaxed, revitalised and restored.
Floating Leaf offers the finest in eco-luxury accommodation with six unique circular villa guest-bedrooms each with private open-air bathroom and spectacular views of the Indian Ocean. All rooms feature air conditioning, remote control ceiling fans and top of the line sheets, pillows, toiletries, and more. If you are looking to make the most out of the view, then a higher level bedroom is recommended. These luxurious eco villas have been designed with sustainability, guest comfort, modern convenience and traditional Balinese values in mind. The materials used are reclaimed, renewable or recycled and great care was taken to build in a way that is both respectful and in harmony with the land.
Heralded as one of the world’s healthiest destinations, Floating Leaf uses the freshest, organic, nutrient-rich ingredients available. Many of the delicious fruits and vegetables used in their cooking are grown on-site in their organic permaculture gardens. The retreat also works closely with the community and subsidises local farmers to help them grow organic, nutrient-rich crops which Floating Leaf also use in their meals. During your stay at the Floating Leaf, all your snacks, meals and juices will be thoughtfully crafted by their private chef to optimise your health. Their menus include traditional Indonesian specialties as well as raw, vegan and vegetarian options. Fear not though, this retreat understands all needs, cravings and ways of life so coffee, alcohol and meat are all available too!
