The Village

Mawun mud village has a very strong community spirit and as some of the first foreigners in the area we have tried our best to foster a harmonious relationship with the local community. The retreat was constructed by the local villagers and an attempt to find common ground between local skills and resources, permaculture concepts and modern, high end design. More than 80% of materials are also from the local village or nearby areas. We collaborate with the locals in producing the majority of our products for sale in the shop, and purchase additional fruit and vegetables from the area. We also have a workshop space on site where we teach local children art and English, as well as brainstorming other economic ventures.

Our location

Mawun mud village is nestled in the mountains between Mawun beach and the world class surfing beach, Mawi beach in south Lombok.

Our restaurant

Our menu is based upon the seasonal fruits and vegetables that come directly from our gardens. We aim to produce the majority of our ingredients on site. This is supplemented by produce sourced from the local village and in some cases nearby towns. Our “superfoods” garden provides us with moringa, turmeric ( for the local drink jamu) wheatgrass, amaranth, chlorella and includes many additional medicinal herbs and plants.


Our edible gardens comprise of banana trees, papaya trees, moringa, mango trees, coconut trees, lime trees and many more tropical fruits and seasonal vegetables. We aim to grow the majority of the produce in our restaurant on site, and our each of our rooms has its own small edible garden.



Coming soon


Our shop sells many of the items, soft furnishings and furniture that we have designed for the retreat, and all of our products are made locally. We provide the rooms with natural soaps, and loofah sponges, which are grown on the property, and these are also available to purchase as souvenirs of your stay.
