The Hideout was built and handcrafted in 2015 by the support of many local workers. Bamboo itself mainly comes from a small village of Iseh, close to the land. Extra attention was paid to the environment.
We are just outside the 12km zone from the volcano. In a safe zone, functioning as normal. Please ask us any questions you have ahead of reservation.
This experience is not like any other, we are not some fancy hotel, and we are truly an adventurous experience, rustic and authentic right in the middle of Balinese village life. We welcome long-time travelers, lovers of nature, a spiritual-minded people, trekking-lovers, backpackers, artists, musicians, and eco-enthusiast to share our Bali experience with us. We are most happy with environmentally thinking guests, who treat our home with love and care.
