This was my second visit to Omunity (& many more yet to come). I was greeted on arrival as a family member, and all guests are treated as most valuable friends. Accommodation, cleanliness, service, food, atmosphere, environment; the whole package, is presented with such care and heart. The Balinese owner, ZANZAN, and his family share the delicious, healthy, generous, home-cooked meals with their guests. ZANZAN takes pleasure in showing his guests around his traditional village, breathtaking waterfalls, market, rice fields, etc. as well as sharing his gorgeous gardens, consciously constructed pool and mindfully magical yoga/meditation space. Not only does he have a wealth of knowledge, but has a huge heart-full of care for his community; environmentally (instigating environmental projects), economically, and energetically; via his full, genuine smile and considered words & actions. This is THE place to visit to restore your energy, the environment and our faith in the human spirit.

Omunity is an Amazing place surrounded by nature, peace and great people.

ZanZan and Putu are wonderful hosts, they truly care for their guest and do anything to enhance your experience. They have an extended list of activities that you just need to do them all! The walks around the rice fields, the dolphin watch, the waterfall walk and the local market are just a few to mention but great if you want to enjoying real Balinese life! I felt like lost in a dream!

The little cottages are very well maintained, they are simple and beautiful, the beds are comfortable and have a mosquito nets just in case, but I didn’t have any problems at all. They have a connected outside bathrooms which is different and nice.
The pool is beautiful, the meditation space is a special place to get quiet and enjoy the sounds of nature.

Last but not least, the food was INCREDIBLE!!! Great variety but mostly DELICIOUS!!! I am going to miss their cooking a lot specially the lemongrass dish!
If you are looking for a place that was created thoughtfully, looking for a true Balinese life experience, beautiful scenarios and great food, Omunity is the place to be, I recommended and I can’t wait to come back!!!

We stayed here with our children's Camp Adventure Group and had a blast. The children stayed in the Wantilan and on a different visit we stayed in one of the small but, comfortable bamboo rooms. rooms all have mosquito nets. We were greeted with what seemed to be 1/2 of the village , they were so kind to help us with our things. OMunity is a relaxing comfortable place to be and enjoy nature and the local people.

The Vegetarian cuisine was delicious, being a meat eater myself I still truly enjoyed the food.
When staying at OMunity you really get the feeling of living in the Village. We got to experience an amazing giant waterfall hike(something like 380 steps down to the river) with the owners ZANZAN and his wife Putu who are two wonderful caring people. At the time a dam had broke near by and we were able to go there and see first hand the strength of nature and how the community comes together, this was an adventure for sure. The Children had an awesome time they will always remember.

I felt as though I really got to experience the real Bali and would recommend OMunity to any one looking to get away from the Tourist Traps and really go on a memorable Vacation.

The journey to the rural village of Sudaji took us far off the beaten track and well into the jungle of Northern Bali. We found ourselves immersed in a lush oasis, greeted by the soft sounds of running water and the delightful smells of home cooking. We took pleasure in feasting on the best cuisine that Indonesia had to offer, and there was always more food to go around than we knew what to do with. From fire ceremonies at the crack of dawn, to thrilling motorbike rides across jungle terrain, our experience at Omunity was truly one of a kind. The model of sustainable living that we encountered was inspirational and truly commendable. If you do one thing in Bali, breath in the fresh air below Sudaji's awe-inspiring waterfalls, and lose yourself in a different pace of life, one that connects you with an ancient tradition of love, kindness, and respect for nature.

Room Tip: you can't go wrong!

With a couple of friends I arrived at this quiet place in the middle of the village Sudaji. We were surrounded by rice paddies and the daily life of the locals. There were lots of different options offered to engage with the community, get to know the culture and practice some Indonesian skills with the children around. When you finished with the Yoga in the morning or the visit on a local market, you could choose between one of the many options: hanging out at the pool, taking a stroll in the village and talk to the people, take a walk to the amazing waterfalls where it is even possible to swim, take a short drive to the beach ... One morning we had the possibility to teach English at a local school as well. We really enjoyed our time in Sudaji. First of all, meeting the people, than the food at OMunity which was delicious and of course it was nice to have ZanZan and Putu always around if you had any questions or were making plans for the next days. Unfornately we were just able to stay a couple of days and I think for all of us it was really hard to leave

I would recommend to anyone who is interested to see the "real Bali life" to spend few days in Omunity. Either in the cottages at Zanzan main house or in one of the villagers homes, your stay will bring you to the real Bali, how all the island might be twenty years ago.
Zanzan, the promoter, has put his heart on this place and every sinlge activity you realize follows the local rythm.
Zanzan's mother will cook your food, you will go to the ricefields to join the farmers and you will join the old ladies from the village to make the hindu offerings.
A great choice!

Omunity Bali offers something totally unique for world travelers -- here is the REAL Bali, in a remote village, staying with one of Bali's most important young cultural leaders, Zanzan, and experiencing life has it has gone on for thousands of years. You'll be staying at the sacred "Cow Houses" built to satisfy western comfort mixed with ancient understanding of the harmony between man, nature and the gods. Experiences will include meeting Zanzan's whole family, deep meditation in a sacred bamboo open space, walks through the jungle and even swimming under the magic waterfall. NOT TO BE MISSED!

Room Tip: All rooms are fantastic!
