“The eyes of the future are looking back at us and they are praying for us to see beyond our own time. To protect what is wild is to protect what is gentle. Perhaps the wilderness we fear is the pause between our own heartbeats, the silent space that says we live only by grace.” – Terry Tempest Williams
We invite you to experience a holiday where your consciousness is engaged with the needs and values of the mystical land around you.
At Cloud Nine Estate we practice a different approach to the concept of luxury hospitality. We take our role as stewards of our pure land as seriously as we consider ourselves care-givers to our guests.
Every effort has been made to balance the hospitality needs of guests, with the needs of Mother Nature. We have integrated eco-solutions in almost every area of our estate - from our ecologically-sound operations, to 90% LED technology in our lighting systems (even in the chandeliers!), Human-Sensitive water heaters and Air-con systems, water-saving bathrooms, ecological toilets that actually feed our gardens, 100% recycling of trash, heavy investment in Eco-Tech operational sundries, our luxurious natural bath amenities, continued staff training programs and commitment to sustainable/fair-trade practices, we will strive endlessly to improve our mission of Conscious Living. Beyond our estate, we continually support Bali's finest treasure, her children, by donating a percentage of yearly profits to a Mother and Baby Safe House in Denpasar.
Spend just one day walking through any village in old Ubud and you will understand what drives our stance. The people, nature and culture of Bali are so rich, deep, and full of LUSH. Gentle people who look you deeply in the eye and smile from their hearts, Endless undulating valleys of forest and food growing on rich volcanic soil. Villagers in dusky halls prepare offerings with love for their temple’s birthday. Gilded dancers flashing like fire in palaces old as time. Forests deeper than the sea and mountains resolute as gold. Sunlight here is the hue of love. Soft blue seas of a very sheer peace. And around every corner, temple bells ring softly, calling all weary souls back to an age of grace. Luxury and its old meanings will begin to morph in your mind.
By staying with us, you are connecting with a small but vibrant team of eco-preneurs dedicated to sustaining the magic of Bali and the world beyond. We challenge you to join our revolution to Redefine Luxury - beyond your Cloud Nine holiday. The best things in life truly are free and cause no harm, even to the breeze.
With love from the breezy Island of the Gods,
