ORGANIC GARDENS BY THE SEA
WHO WE ARE
Singapore offers his beautiful ‘Gardens By The Bay‘, at The Lombok Lodge we proudly introduce you to The Lombok Lodge ‘Organic Gardens by The Sea’ at The Private Villa Estate, Gondang Village. Reconnect with nature and revitalise your mind with a walk through our beautiful Organic Gardens!
The Organic Gardens of the Private Villa Estate comprises offer a fruit and vegetable garden with great botanical diversity; 2 Hectares and 4 Clusters spanning vegetable areas, stone and pome fruits, nuts, citrus, berries, bees and herbs. Turtles are currently nesting, some hatching. Our own chicken farm will follow soon.
Every one of the more than 300 varieties of plants in the garden is edible or has medicinal value. They are also grown as organically as possible and in a biologically sustainable manner. The fruit and vegetables from the garden are harvested all year round for use in two farm-to-table restaurant concepts.
Our head gardener Pak Ketut and his team tend the plants that have flourished beyond expectation – so much so that it’s quite hard to believe that the garden is still relatively young.
FARM TO TABLE PHILOSOPHY
Every aspect of The Private Villa Estate Hospitality – including the contemporary Private Villas, the Estate Boutique and Restaurant – is led by the ever-changing tapestry and botanical diversity of the garden. Chef Jiwa Raga’s delicous menus are always guided by what is available in the garden.
At The Lombok Lodge Hospitality, we have a farm-to-table philosophy which means we like to serve food that is seasonal and that reflects our ‘pick, clean and serve’ approach.
On all the plots, the garden beds are permanent in order to develop soil biodiversity. Crops are very diverse and planted in a very high density. What characterizes a kitchen garden system is the prompt succession of the plants with the goal of having high yields on smaller surfaces.
