Kaliandra is an education and training center and responsible tourism destination resort, open year-round (closed only for Idul Fitri celebration), encapsulated in 16 hectares of forest, driven by biodiversity conservation, environmental and cultural understanding and utilisation of local employment and resources. As an education center, we offer many programs to our surrounding poorer communities emphasizing, promoting and training on ‘good practice’ of agro-forestry and agriculture. Entrepreneurial skills and business management, responsible/ sustainable/ eco-tourism and hospitality product development and English-speaking capability are also very important aspects which we teach. In addition to these community programs, we are also a provider of ‘outward bound’ style leadership and team-building activity programs taught by our trained team leaders – always with an environmental and cultural theme – educating groups of up to 120 people.
On top of our community, training and activity programs, Kaliandra is also the perfect place to come and enjoy your vacation away from the stresses and strains of home or city life. Whether you are a family looking for an activity-packed weekend, an international backpacker en-route through Java, or a group of friends looking for a quiet spiritual retreat to relax and meditate – we have the accommodation and facilities to suit you! Choose to stay in our dorm-style ‘rumah’ in Bharatapura village or indulge in our newest additions found in Hastinapura village – our sumptuous, yet traditional Javanese style forest-lodges. Our Kaliandra family, most of whom speak English, will assist you in any nature and culture activities and programs you wish to take part in. Click here to see what you can do during your stay.
Kaliandra exists as a non-governmental organization (NGO) and is found on the lower slopes of Mount Arjuna at a height of 850m. We were established in 1997 as a foundation, helping to support conservation of the Mount Arjuna area through educating our surrounding communities and improving their standards of living through better resource management – resulting in symbiosis of mankind and our natural environment.
