AYANA Open Sustainable Farm Retreat – Hotel Magazine


AYANA Farm is an organic oasis and learning centre covering two hectares of the 90-hectare AYANA Estate in Jimbaran, Bali’s largest integrated resort, which provides the estate with a wide array of high-quality produce and enables guests to experience sustainable and traditional Balinese farming techniques. Following months of production system and infrastructure enhancements, the reimagined AYANA Farm is now open for guests and the wider community to enjoy an expanded range of educational and enriching experiences.

Agrarian culture and striving for ecological balance play a significant role in the spiritual lives of Balinese, and through its use of eco-friendly and climate-smart practices, including soil health, biodiversity maintenance, water conservation, and resource optimisation, alongside the time-honoured methods passed down through generations of Indonesian farmers, AYANA Farm is the ideal location for guests to explore sustainability and Bali’s ancient agricultural ethos.

Guests and members of the community are welcome to join the complementary AYANA Farm Walk to learn about the sustainable principles and traditional methods used to grow the estate’s diverse array of vegetables, fruits, herbs, edible flowers, and medicinal plants.

During the Rediscover Agriculture at AYANA Farm experience, guests can participate in activities such as planting and harvesting, and learn about the farm’s Apotek Hidup, or living pharmacy, which showcases Balinese and Indonesian traditional medicinal knowledge. At the end of the visit, participants have an opportunity to create their own herbal teas using AYANA Farm’s organic edible flowers and herbs. Guests intrigued by the ancient art of Indonesia’s traditional herbal remedies can attend The Art of Djamoe by the Jamu Bar, which is led by expert herbalists and Jamu makers.  

Farm-to-Bar workshop activities have provided an opportunity for guests to explore various areas of mixology, using freshly harvested edible flowers, herbs, and spices, whilst the Afternoon Tea at Ayana Farm is a chance to experience the farm’s biodiversity practices.

General Manager of AYANA Estate, Giordano Faggioli, said that the opening of AYANA Farm reaffirms the estate’s stance to be environmentally sustainable, whilst honouring local traditions.

“We are also proud to announce that AYANA Farm will shift to 100% solar energy this year,” said Faggioli.

“With the increase in travellers wanting to give back to the communities they visit and to form lasting connections, we believe AYANA Farm is set to become one of Bali’s standout eco-tourism destinations.”
