The space
Our definition of Eco sustainability is to able guests enjoy experiencing a real nature stay with its simplicity and authenticity with just the enough comfort needed.

We would like to host you in our Honeymoon Bungalow to make you feel like getting lots of love and happiness in a home away from home place. Enjoying the stylish soulful innovative Bamboo architecture and thoughtful touches inside.

It has its own private ocean view large 3,5 meters balcony with an hammock and 2 benches

A spacious room with a queen size bed (room size 4,5m long to 6m large). Included a strong balinese style mosquito net to protect your honeymoon beds from eventual bugs. Not shown on picture by the photographer.

It has an open sky bathroom with sitting toilet and cool shower with ocean and garden view connected to the bungalow.

The lodge is a modern bamboo design with avangarde ecotechnics from the young creative and alternative architect community of Arkomjogja.

They used their proper unique technology of bending bamboos to get the leaf inspired curved design which blends into the natural surroundings. The roof is inspired by the old way to roofing before tiles.

It was built within our project to promote the use of local bamboo, stone and plastic filled of ocean trash "Eco-bricks" bottles instead of concrete bricks and cement. It is thought to be harmonized with its surrounding environment and its natural hazard.
We empowered and hired local people as part as our fair share program to build it.

We treat through a natural system your gray water (shower/sink) into a fish pound (under your balcony) and last but not least your toilet output will produce biogas and great green fertilizer to grow organic vegetable and fruits to the future guests.

The place and the price is for two people only (and a baby up to 2 years without matras free.)
You have the possibility to add 1 extra single matras on the floor for a child to be extra charged.
Don't hesitate to send us a request to sort it out.

Did you check the other bungalows and houses for rent? Like the "Antic Joglo Villa" for families and groups, or the "Rumah Bukit" for smaller families/groups and the more budgets Limasan bungalows. Don't hesitate to compare to find the most suitable one for you.

The easiest visual way to understand better Jiwa Laut life check and follow our life on In sta gram @jiwalaut We are a small family community registered as Non Profit status organisation (LSM). We were founded by local City Yogyanese explorers and eco social futuristic minded people. We were looking to go back to nature and live a simpler more meaningful life away from the stress and pollution of city life. We teamed up together with some local villagers who believed in our run against the mainstream tide project and wanted to be able to stay in this region with a fair income and avoid to have to move to city to get unhealthy job and life style. We want with the local community of villagers through hospitality share our local natural beauty, javanese culture and tradition still very alive, our sustainable eco healthy life style and all we did learn by leaving the city to live here to the world. In return we expect you give back and share with local community here by enjoying what they love to offer to visitors and help finance our community projects through our association which without you, wouldn't be able to run any empowerment and eco projects. Our hospitality vision means: -Offer a stay like a home away from home - Personal, javanese village like hospitality. - Offer to guest the possibility to enjoy a stay in a natural, still unspoiled environment, - Try the sustainable life as much as the earth can provide but with the real needed comfort and infrastructure to host guests, away from city, over facilities and consumerism life style. - Providing a place for Javanese cultural understanding. - We are Socially and environmentally responsible fare trade operator. Which means travelling on budget doesn't mean exploiting the local people. We like to promote projects such as empowering local communities with use of eco material such as bamboo, ecobricks (from guests and beach collecting trash), support local farmer buying their organic or natural products over market price, fare share sustainable responsible tourism involving communities with guests supporting the people, their activities and projects, support villagers woman cooking simple healthy local meals, wooden workshop furnitures, post harvest processing mocaf flour and coconut oil, local handicraftmen etc..

During your stay

We are not business hotel professional as we come from different fields. Our primary activity is to run our projects and experiments.

We try to give the best hospitality from our deep heart to our guests, like hosting family or friends to make our place different from a resort. Our interaction with guests is up to our guests willing to have any with us and our extended community family and of course depends on our presence and availability with our program schedule.

If you want to be sure to meet the Host and Founder of Jiwa Laut, book and ask in advance, so she can adjust her busy planning. We all have side activities to help support ourself. At least there is always someone present on site 24h, however some of us have very very limited or no english.

Of course we are willing to share with you our natural surrounding environment, knowledge, philosophy and spirituality and alternative way of life avoiding plastic and high consumerism city life style, close to nature.

We can help introduce you to local traditions and people living around us. We are willing to show and offer you experiences, activities and bringing you around if you want to. This way your money spent during activities will be shared to our extended communities and used to finance projects. Which is the reason why we opened our Community to Airbnb.
