Recharge your body at this off-beat luxury beachfront eco-retreat that connects guests with nature in adventurous ways.

Built with the three tenets of Permaculture in mind – Earth Care, People Care, and Fair Share, Ngalung Kalla Eco Retreat is a perfect place for travelers seeking adventure and relaxation on a paradisiacal island.
