Seed Resort

A barefoot luxury eco-retreat offering sustainable organic growth for the body, mind, and soul.

Overview

Nestled on the serene shores of Rote Island, Seed Resort beckons you to a sanctuary of healthy living, active recuperation, and wholesome relaxation. This paradisiacal haven seamlessly blends raw natural beauty with eco-friendly and barefoot luxury, offering a nomadic island home away from home.

As you step onto the island’s southernmost retreat in the Indonesian Archipelago, you’ll be captivated by the pristine white powder beach of Nemberela, renowned for hosting the longest shore break wave in all of Indonesia, the legendary T Land. Unwind and connect with the rhythmic pulse of the Indian Ocean just steps away as you settle in to one of nine exclusive bungalows tucked amidst lush banana palms, where seclusion meets the symphony of nature.

Unforgettable Experiences

Seed Resort promises a multitude of unforgettable experiences, whether you seek solitude or companionship. Ideal for families, couples, solo travelers, large groups of friends, or special celebrations like weddings, birthdays, and corporate events, the resort caters to every whim.

Awaken your body, mind, and spirit with daily yoga classes in the open-air Shala, where the gentle sea breeze carries you to a meditative state. The in-house holistic spa therapists are skilled artisans of relaxation, offering rejuvenating treatments that revitalize your senses. The resort’s centerpiece, a mesmerizing 20-meter freshwater infinity pool artfully perched on a cliff overlooking the rolling waves, is a sublime spot to lap up the tranquility around you and take in the stunning panoramic sunsets.

For those feeling more energetic, the island retreat also boasts a treasure trove of activities that evoke a sense of discovery. Ride the waves on exhilarating surfing escapades, dive into the crystalline waters for sensational snorkeling encounters, or embark on daily boat trips that reveal secret coves and enchanting marine life. Glide on paddleboards, explore hidden lagoons on kayaks, or embark on bicycle journeys to discover the island’s innermost secrets.

A Taste Of Paradise

At the heart of Seed’s organic philosophy is its restaurant, a culinary haven that invites you to embark on a gastronomic journey infused with local flavors and organic delights. Set by the poolside, the restaurant’s open-air setting immerses you in the scintillating sea breeze and mesmerizing ocean views whilst you indulge in homemade specialties like jams, yogurts, freshly baked bread, and granola, each crafted with care and love by the resort’s chefs-cum-culinary artists. The resort’s verdant gardens yield homegrown herbs, vegetables, and fruits, ensuring that each dish on your plate is infused with the nourishing essence of the island.

As the sun sets over the horizon, the resort’s experienced bartenders are always on hand to help you unwind with a tempting array of signature classic cocktails. For a truly enchanting experience, private candlelit dinners can also be arranged under the twinkling stars, where the beach transforms into a magical haven of romance. Couples seeking an unforgettable meal amidst nature’s embrace will cherish this rustic yet elegant setting.

Eco-Conscious Practices

Beyond providing an idyllic retreat, Seed Resort is dedicated to preserving the pristine beauty of Rote Island and reducing its environmental impact. With a profound commitment to sustainability, eco-conscious practices are commonplace that resonate with nature’s rhythm, not least the use of solar power to harness renewable energy for significant parts of the resort. The salt-water pool, a breathtaking spectacle overlooking the beach, is a prime example, drawing its energy entirely from the sun’s radiant rays.

Organic waste is thoughtfully composted, transformed into nourishing fertilizer for the resort’s gardens. The resort’s bio septic tank efficiently recycles wastewater, irrigating the lush green landscape. But Seed Resort’s eco-conscious practices even extend to the very heart of its infrastructure, where recycled wood and sustainable materials have been used to construct and furnish each bungalow.

A symphony of sights, tastes, and experiences that echo the pulse of Rote Island’s untouched beauty, Seed Resort is truly a sanctuary where the spirit of nature intertwines with the essence of serenity, and a testament to the harmony achievable between luxurious indulgence and environmental responsibility.
