Aligned with their sustainable philosophy, organic food gardens surround the antique wood Javanese bridal homes that are the rooms. In 2013, IBUKU expanded Bambu Indah with a dramatic open-kitchen, called Dapoer. Fresh, organic, veggies are now in abundance at Bambu Indah. Guests have the opportunity to watch their food grow whilst enjoying a meal at the restaurant. We took the existing bio-intensive gardens and transformed them using permaculture principles. IBUKU Gardens worked with the hotel management to develop a system to account for the produce grown at the hotel. Most months the garden provides more direct value from garden yields than basic operational costs. The gardeners are given up to 50% of this profit each month. It’s a step in the right direction for the gardeners, for organic food in Bali, and for the Bambu Indah’s ecological values.
