Hand-Picked Hotel

Immerse yourself in Balinese culture at Kaura Bali, a peaceful luxury retreat with a focus on sustainability, surrounded by breath-taking natural beauty.

If you’re looking to escape somewhere completely different, Kaura Bali should be top of your list. This immersive Village retreat Experience is located in the peaceful village of Manggis, surrounded by lush greenery and tranquil rice fields – it provides guests with a serene environment to relax and unwind. This idyllic haven is also designed to offer a unique window into Balinese life while contributing to the development of the local community. Connect with nature and fellow travellers as you hang out in hammocks and chat with village elders over refreshing cocktails.

While the luxe accommodation at Kaura Bali is one of its many special features, it’s the activities on offer that make this community really stand out. You can enjoy farming immersion experiences, traditional cooking classes with local villagers, and hiking and cycles routes to the jungle and beach to get a feel for the surrounding area. If you’re an early riser, you can take part in daily sunrise yoga sessions, or soak up the sun by the 20-metre infinity pool with glorious views. For the ultimate indulgence, head to Kaura Spa for restorative Balinese massage treatments and modern beauty packages.

At the heart of this retreat, the Kaura Bali Community Centre is a beautiful bamboo structure that serves as a cultural bridge between guests and the local villagers – here you can learn about local craftsmanship and organic farming techniques. When it’s time to eat, the open-air restaurant, Pratiwi, serves up delicious Balinese dishes and international favourites prepared by talented local chefs using locally sourced ingredients. To end the evening, huddle around the hilltop firepit to roast marshmallows, stargaze, or simply cosy up with a blanket by the soft flames and swap stories from your day.

Local Area

You’ll find Kaura Bali in the peaceful village of Manggis in the east of Bali. The retreat is up on the hill of Pegubugan village, which is approximately 90 minutes’ drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport. Its surroundings are nothing short of breath-taking. Nestled among rice terraces above a dense jungle valley dotted with waterfalls, temples and nine hectares of farmland, you’ll discover a true Balinese treasure. While blissfully secluded, you can still easily reach South Bali’s hotspots if you’re craving a bit of buzz and some sightseeing.

There are plenty of activities at Kaura Bali to help familiarise you with the local area. Join the cycling excursion from the village to the beach where you’ll ride pedal-assist e-bikes to explore the Karangasem region, learn about its inhabitants’ livelihoods, and discover one of East Bali’s most incredible beaches. Willing to get your hands dirty? Try the Manggis Farming Immersion by spending half a day alongside cheerful farmers who have supported their families for generations in the fertile valley.

Travel slightly further afield and there are tons of awe-inspiring cultural experiences to be had. Tirta Gangga, just 30 minutes away, features heavenly gardens, fountains, and pools filled with multi-coloured fish – it’s a great place to learn about Balinese culture and tradition. Relax in the natural spring water believed to have healing properties and enjoy time-honoured Balinese dance performances. Meanwhile, the Hindu temple, Pura Lempuyang Luhur, is located on a hilltop with a magnificent view of Mount Agung. It’s an important place of worship and is known for its unique Balinese architecture, including the ornate “Gates of Heaven”.
