The SpaceThe Hideout was built and handcrafted in 2015 by the support of many local workers. Bamboo itself mainly comes from a small village of Iseh, close to the land. Extra attention was paid to the environment. This experience is not like any other, we are not some fancy hotel, and we are truly an adventurous experience, rustic and authentic right in the middle of Balinese village life. We welcome long-time travelers, lovers of nature, a spiritual-minded people, trekking-lovers, backpackers, artists, musicians and eco-enthusiast to share our Bali experience with us.
