Applying principles of permaculture to our gardens, with natural pesticides and insecticides. Having a waste water garden to water our plants with 'recycled' water. To reduce, reuse and recycle in every aspect!

We use as many natural materials as possible and apply a 'permaculture concept'. We do our best to be eco-friendly.

Our Eco-Friendly Projects

We build most parts of our buildings using bamboo to minimise the use of wood

Everywhere you see, there will be our spirit of a green ecosystem

We use our homemade Compost for fertilizer. Plastic bottles are recycled to make walls and barriers.

Permaculture Garden, Bee House and Orchid gardens are other projects to preserve nature in the spirit of being eco-friendly and Tri Hita Karana (harmony between humans, their God and their environment). From the beautiful orchids, medicinal plants as our "living apothecary", organic bananas and aromatherapy leaves- they are all fertilized with our homemade compost.

We are proud to say that Serenity is the first eco-friendly guesthouse in Canggu practicing permaculture. This means we develop an ecosystem that is self-sustaining through organic gardening. Expect to see a lot of vegetation around you and please do not be alarmed if you find insects or spiders in your room. Notify reception when this happens and we will take immediate action to do a deep room clean (be reminded we only use natural products with no chemicals for insect repellant)
