On the cliffs above Padang Padang beach in Uluwatu lies Suarga Padang Padang. An unique, peaceful and magnificent resort built upon the three pillars of sustainability: environmental, social, and economical. We fell in love at first sight.
After leaving El Kabron and staying the night at Wyndham Dreamland Resort Bali, we booked a taxi to drive us over to Suarga Padang Padang. Someone had told us this was a beautiful place we definitely should consider visit. And that someone was absolutely right. The only regret we had leaving, was that we had not booked it for a longer stay.
Walking out of the taxi we where welcomed by a huge door leading into the resort.
Shortly after our arrival we met with the general manager who told us about the resort. How it was built with sustainability in mind. Not one tree was cut down to create this stunning place. No plastic is used anywhere. All the water is recycled. They used working force from the islands they got the material from, in order to give back to the same society.
On their website it reads;
A majority of the resort’s structures are built on stilts in an effort to preserve the indigenous flora and fauna and to promote natural cooling air circulation. Renewable energy, in combination with energy-efficient technology, is applied to the lighting, air conditioning and all other equipment in the resort.
Offering a different kind of luxury, Suarga Padang Padang invites today’s “Rough Luxury Travellers” to experience modern comfort and deserved indulgences, yet at minimal expense to the surrounding environment.
What’s not to love?
We had a fantastic two days at Suarga Padang Padang. Initially there was one thing we where a little bit concerned about however. The general manager told us about the semi open bathroom. And the monkeys. They apparently “liked” to come into the bathroom and steal anything they would come across. Thus we had to never leave anything in there. Hedvig and Marianne insisted to be held company whenever they where in the bathroom. But during our stay, we had no “monkey experience” in the bathroom. Only a few times we saw them – most of which they came to drink water from the pool.
To our own surprise we where a little bit dissapointed that we did not see any monkeys on day two.
Anyways. I’ll let the pictures speak for it self.
And a video. Got up Saturday morning – to catch the sunrise.
