The De Moksha Eco Friendly Resort; A haven of peace for all
Just look in any direction to see a plethora of cafes, yoga studios and juice bars that reflect Bali’s dedication to spiritual and physical well-being.
And no company has embraced this philosophy quite like De Moksha Eco-Friendly Boutique Resort.
A “home away from home“For Indonesians and visitors alike, this tranquil resort town is built around the idea of new beginnings, restoration and rebirth, so it’s no surprise that businesses have embraced this philosophy of development.
Bali, in its lush, green splendor, has always been a favorite spot for nomadic travelers, free-spirited vacationers, and people seeking a higher spiritual state of being. Indonesia’s tourist hub is their first port of call; an open and tolerant society is a perfect place to relax, stretch and rejuvenate.
Secluded from the commercial center of Bali, Eco Friendly has an air of purity that few others can boast. Sandwiched between pristine rice paddies and towering rainforest, the resort immerses itself in its rural surroundings with grace and beauty. Giant sculpted leaves form the roofs of elegant villas, peaceful pavilions nestle in tropical shrubbery, and outdoor pools blend seamlessly with the surrounding nature, providing that endless sense of serenity. In a world apart, this is what enlightenment, or “Moksha”, looks like.
With a total of 19 villas, the hotel complex is expanding. However, a strong environmental conscience means they only expand proportionately to meet demand. Of course, you don’t have to be a genius to realize that love for the environment is at the heart of everything they do. Yet much of their environmental work remains invisible. Fighting the plastic pollution that tourism has left in its wake, Eco Friendly discourages single-use plastic bottles with plenty of water stations complete with pitchers and tumblers for guests to use as they go and come. All of their equipment uses strictly biodegradable materials, such as soy-based oil and natural essential oils. And for those looking for a good night’s sleep, their luxurious bed linens, made from natural wood fibers and lyocell, are gentle on the skin and facilitate an uninterrupted Dreamtime.
The resort’s eco-friendly practices have even sparked new awareness in neighboring villages. Seeing the river clogged with plastic bottles and bags prompted them to educate local villagers on how to dispose of waste responsibly. Since then, the river has been flowing quietly, without unwanted visitors!
Eco Friendly’s deep and unwavering commitment to its community is truly compelling. A kind and friendly company that treats its guests and staff like family, it has garnered praise for its handling of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even though they were forced to shut down for much of 2020, their staff salaries were still paid in full. After all, without them, Eco Friendly wouldn’t be what it is today. From April to August they reopened, but as a quarantine center for migrant workers. Through this extraordinary act of compassion and generosity, their staff have been equipped to run the resort in accordance with all health and safety guidelines. After months of operating safely under the pandemic cloud, they have been officially recognized as a safe facility by the Ministry of Tourism of Indonesia. Eco Friendly is quickly becoming a pillar of the Balinese community!
And as far as the guests are concerned, rest and relaxation are the order of the day. Indeed, Eco Friendly encourages it as soon as you walk through their rustic wooden doors. As you’ll soon discover, tensions simply fade as babbling streams accompany barefoot strolls, the sweet scents of massage oils draw you in for luxurious treatments, and the resort’s leafy hallways wrap you in a restorative blanket. It’s the perfect soundtrack for Eco Friendly’s celebration of Bali’s cultural heritage; Indonesia’s exquisite craftsmanship can be seen everywhere. From fascinating wood carvings to symbolic statues and performance art, all the senses are delighted with this immersive experience.
And when we say “all the senses“, we think so! Swarga Rasa Ristorante is the jewel in the resort’s intricately carved crown. Specializing in traditional European and Balinese cuisine, the international menu has something for everyone. A vision of modernity and simplicity, the decor reflects their holistic approach to hospitality which always prioritizes ethical, sustainable and local suppliers who provide the freshest ingredients available. Nutritious, wholesome, and visually stunning foods pave the way for a complete vacation that feeds the heart and soul. From dining chair to yoga mat, plush bed to hammock, and pool to massage table, these are the little journeys that will define your new beginning.
