Sarinbuana Eco Lodge, Bali
Sarinbuana, a family owned, sustainablity focused Eco Lodge were the first resort we created content for in 2016 when we visited Bali. In the 2 years since then, we have revisited and worked with them on many occasions and have established a trusting, long lasting relationship and real friendship with the owners.
We have become their go-to creators, having worked for their Eco Lodge as well as their Eco Beach Hut around Bali on several different creative projects. Our work for them is always personalised - prior to creating content for them, we discuss what they're looking to promote and what we can create to help them achieve it.
Working for Sarinbuana has been a great opportunity for us to unleash our full creativity in our roles, having been given the chance to direct and plan projects and work behind the scenes as well as execute the final plans and bring them to life.
Our work with them has involved creating a video for their permaculture gardens, photographs of the lodge for their website and online booking outlets, aerial photographs and videos of their land and mountain surroundings and further hundreds of photographs and short videos overall for their activities and experiences on offer which they publish across their online and social media outlets.
Sarinbuana continues to receive more bookings and excellent feedback from guests. The owners are always happy and excited about the content we create for them and almost all guests have mentioned being impressed and convinced by the videos and photos we have created for Sarinbuana.
We were able to be the first to capture aerial shots of the incredible mountains around the land of Sarinbuana, which once again, gained the Lodge more popularity. Our photographic work for them was also recognised by a book publisher they're working with as a potential book cover.
Their website boasts dozens of our images which have been said to be a big part of guest's choices to stay at Sarinbuana. Their social media outlets, likewise, continue to grow in popularity and followings due to helping Sarinbuana capture and publish all the wonderful experiences they have to offer.
As we continue our work with Sarinbuana, we're grateful for the opportunities and creative challenges to not only create content that benefits their company but also content that inspires people and holds within itself - historic, family and sustainable values.
We are proud of the work we have produced and our close collaboration and friendship with Sarinbuana continues to lead to exceptional outcomes.
Food from the garden to your plate
'Food from the garden to your plate'
"The fascination with nature is that it never runs out, it just changes forms." - a quote proven to be true by so many nature experiences, especially in Indonesia. From the mountainous jungle of Ubud to the wild blue waves of Uluwatu, seeing such earthy elements transform to ocean paradise amazed me on our journey.
Little did we know that the biggest and most surprising transformation of all was still awaiting us in the mountains of Tabanan. Sarinbuana Eco Lodge, spread out on a mountain top in a peaceful village lived by locals offer sustainable living, incredible activities and breath taking surroundings. One would think they've arrived in the paradise of their dreams, only to realise it gets better.
The lodge have their own premature gardens which they utilise to create freshly made, organic and nutritious meals served at their restaurant on site, overlooking beautiful Balinese scenery. They've formed a family of charming staff from the local surrounding villages who maintain the gardens and harvest seasonal produce from which they create traditionally Balinese meals. Waking up in the morning, we picked our meals for the day from their menu, only to find that they staff went picking fresh ingredients from the grounds to then cook up into our meals for the day.
Fuelled by delicious food and energised from the power of plants, we fell into a lasting state of happiness and gratitude upon the realisation that we were in our most special surroundings yet. We found ourselves in the care of a truly compassionate community that was far more special than an impressive resort with great food, due to their sustainable values and work with nature. I mean, what an enriching experience seeing nature change forms in such a way. To see tiny seeds in the ground grow into vibrant fruits, vegetables and herbs until they become ingredients used for feeding and nourishing our bodies with delicious & nutritious meals.
To first hand witness how the food we out into our bodies goes from nature to our plate has been a truly inspiring awakening to the fundamental importance of taking care of ourselves and our environment, equally and thoughtfully. Maintaining this beautiful synergy between nature and humans and making sustainable, conscious choices in which our Eco system can thrive is truly at the root of Sarinbuana Eco Lodge's actions. While they provide incredible indulgences from breakfast to dinner, their deeper intentions of spreading organic farming and sustainable living shine through all aspects of this beautiful lodge.
