Sumberkima is a seaside village next to Pemuteran close to Menjangan Island, diving and snorkeling paradise. It has diverse scenery and authentic culture steeped in tradition. Here you can truly relax away from the bustle of the south. The resort has panoramic views of the hills, the bay of Sumberkima and the volcanoes of Java. We have two restaurants at the retreat, serving local and international cuisines. Our reception team can organise all your excursions, yoga sessions and spa treatments.

The space
Villa Uma derives its name from another word in Bahasa, sawah and signifies the goddess who guards the rice field. The villa stands today on an ancient, blessed land that has gifted many a fine harvest to the villagers for years and you can see several rice fields in the distance. The blessings continue as the sanctimonious villa yields bounties of joy to all those who inhabit it.
The sea view and sunrise here is spectacular and the sunset behind the volcanoes of Java from the gazebo on the top defies all expectations. Located close to the restaurant and spa, this 2 bedroom villa with a private pool and outdoor showers is a dream come true.
Bedroom 1: one double bed and a bunk bed
Bedroom 2: one double bed

Where you’ll be

Pemuteran, Bali, Indonesia

NORTH WEST BALI

Sumberkima Hill lies in North West Bali – a sunshine soaked area that benefits from the breathtaking tropical flora and fauna that call this region home as well as the authentic, cultural elements that give it the blessed, wholesome feeling. From the oldest temples of Bali to some of the best diving and snorkelling spots in Indonesia, from a laid back beach culture to a reef restoration project, we have it all! This is the other side of Bali – a subtle yet powerful alchemy of tradition, nature and community.

We are close to Menjangan Island, part of the Barat National Park. Visit the park for a nature walk or a bird watching tour, or come diving and snorkeling in paradise. Starting point for a private trip to Menjangan Island is from Bangsal harbor, a 5 minute drive down the hill. Bangsal harbour is also the starting point to visit our own local reef restoration project and has a white sand island that you can visit on a snorkelling expedition or for a beach barbecue. You can also rent a canoe to explore the mangroves and continue your trip to the white sand island.

We have set up an NGO called Metamorfosa - this team has been restoring the reef with the help of local partners. We're creating a balanced ecosystem that can also generate income for the villagers to ensure long term success. We help to improve conditions for coral to grow well by farming crops that keep the water clean, like sea cucumbers, scallops and sea weed. By offering guided tours and sponsorship options, we can involve visitors in our mission and let them contribute to the project.

We hope to be an example and learning environment for other areas with the same dreams and goals.

Metamorfosa has started a coral nursery where pieces of baby coral can grow before we place them on the sculptures underwater. These sculptures with the baby coral attached to them form the beginning of a new, healthy reef. Artists are working on a series of sculptures within the theme of ‘change’ that together form an underwater art gallery. You are very welcome to visit this underwater art gallery and we hope you will get inspired by its message!

Other things you can do:

You can take our free shuttle to go snorkelling at our reef restoration in Bangsal harbour or at the Biorock structures in Pemuteran, or have a sunny beach day there.

There are many interesting temples in the area. Our local guide would love to take you on a hike up the hill. You can start the hike from your villa and experience the sunrise from the hills of Sumberkima.

Our team can also arrange trips a bit further away , like to the Aling Aling Waterfall with jumps and slides for the adventurous ones, the beautiful Sekumpul Waterfall, the Ijen Crater in Java, the Medewi surf area, rice paddies in Pupuan, and much more.

The retreat is like a Balinese village, with a friendly team, mostly from Sumberkima. They will take you to their homes, experience a ceremony if there is one around. Within walking distance you can find an authentic village and beautiful nature walks.

My husband Bernard and I were both born in The Hague in the Netherlands and love travelling. In 1991 we started a trip around the world and fell in love with Bali. We returned several times but after having children mainly had Europe as holiday destination. When we went back to Bali with the family in 2008 we found the perfect place to build our future home in paradise. Pemuteran and Sumberkima Hill, the village next to Pemuteran: It was a bit of a shock for us to see how busy the south had become in 2008. A lot had changed in 15 years. We found the relaxed atmosphere here that we loved and the conditions that we think will keep this place special for the future. The scenery around the bay is magnificent and for snorkeling and diving it is probably the best spot in Bali. The people are special and the community is very much involved in protecting the area. It is a privilege to be there. The Unique Benefits: A friend that stayed with us at Villa Semadhi and mentioned that the villa is a destination by itself. He felt so relaxed and just liked being there, enjoying the scenery and listening to the waves, sitting by the sea. The garden is very large compared to most villas in Bali, giving it a sense of space. The style is traditional and there are many large trees, giving the impression that the house belongs there. Add to the experience a friendly staff that takes care of all your needs free mountain bikes and a canoe to explore the area. Later in 2015 we opened our retreat in Sumberkima Hill, a very special place again.
