KALIANDRA SEJATI FOUNDATION
is an established foundation and social enterprise set up in 1997 in East Java, Indonesia. Kaliandra is working with local communities to improve their standard of living. The foundation carries out various community development programmes and supports conservation of natural and cultural resources.
KALIANDRA ECO RESORT AND WELLNESS CENTER
Idyllically located in a 40 hectare estate at an altitude of 850m above sea level on the cool and scenic slopes of Mount Arjuna, a small Eco-tourism Resort & Hotel
and Wellness Center
has been set up to support the foundation activities. While less than two hours south of Surabaya and an hour from Malang the resort benefits from the clean and pleasant mountain climate.
“The traveller in Java who wishes to see the finest flowers, the richest vegetation, that the island has to offer, will naturally turn to the mountains, and he will nowhere be disappointed.”
- C.G.G.J Van Steenis, Explorer and Botanist
In addition to the villas, suites, rooms, restaurants, wellness and fitness center and swimming pools, the resort together with the foundation also offers traditional dance, music, art, conference facilities, group accommodation and variety of educational and development programmes for corporates, schools and groups.
All profits from the Kaliandra Eco Resort and Wellness Center are used to fund the activities of the Kaliandra Sejati Foundation, thereby strengthening the local communities, protect the natural resources of Mount Arjuna and improve the livelihoods of local people.
Kaliandra manages part of its 40 hectare site as a certificated Organic Farm
, using the fruit and vegetables we grow in our restaurants and selling them in the cities. We also work with the farmers from the villages around us to grow organic produce (also certified) and market the produce for them on a fair-trade basis.
