If Damai feels like a home, it is perhaps because it once was one. The resort started as the dream of building a home on a hill in Bali, when a Danish advertising executive passed by this beautiful, unspoiled village in the early 1990's. Even now, decades later, when this dream of a home has grown into the region's premier resort, Damai retains the original dream in its dna. The many personal touches, the private gardens, the collections of antiques often make you feel like you are staying in the villa of a friend, rather than in a hotel. If your friend has a staff of 100 friendly Balinese, that is.
The villas are beautiful, the restaurant and spa are outstanding and the views are sometimes unforgettable. But what truly makes staying at Damai a unique experience is the staff. Many have been with the resort since the very beginning. Most are from Kayuputih, Damai's village, or one of the neighboring villages, like Kaliasem or Kalibukbuk. But all will welcome you with the typical grace of Balinese hospitality, just as they would if you were a guest in their home.
The Damai is member of the BookGreener hotel association, a group of small, luxurious tropical resorts dedicated to sustainability. We all collaborate to conserve resources, reduce our impact on our environment and provide organic, sustainable solutions without compromising the comfort of our guests.
Drive West along Jalan Raya, the main coast road until you reach the traffic light in central Lovina. Take the road to your left (your 9 o'clock direction, heading inland). This road is called Jalan Damai. You soon arrive at a fork in the road - take the left fork, and follow the road uphill for about 4 km to arrive at Damai on the right side of the road.
There is a number of alternate routes to arrive at Damai via Jalan Raya Wanagiri, the main road on the mountain ridge above the lakes. While these might be faster and more beautiful than taking the beaten path through Singaraja, they can often be a challenging drive, even under good conditions, and the quality of the roads varies greatly from season to season. But they can be quite the experience all the same.
