Tamu Seseh

Updated May 2024 by The Punch Team

Nestled amidst beautiful rice fields of Seseh in the southwest coast of Bali, Tamu Seseh blends contemporary luxury with authentic village-inspired architecture. Choose from one to seven-bedroom configurations, each offering a haven of tranquility and personalized service, including your own personal chef. Exclusively using plantation timbers and prioritizing local materials and architecture to reflect Balinese village traditions, Tamu Seseh was built on previously unproductive land, ensuring no rice fields were sacrificed during its construction. Every aspect of the resort, from recycling and composting initiatives to wastewater purification systems, is meticulously designed to minimize its ecological footprint and support the local community.

The site selected for Tamu
Seseh was ‘tanah kering’ (unproductive land), meaning no ricefields were lost due to its construction.


The site selected for Tamu Seseh was ‘tanah kering’ (unproductive land), meaning no ricefields were lost due to its construction. No rainforest or coconut trees were felled during construction, even though it meant fewer villas on the site and any wildlife found on our grounds is removed to a safer haven, wherever possible. All the timbers used are plantation timbers – no rainforest timbers were used.

Tamu Seseh has installed waste water gardens to purify the discharge from the septic tanks. This means that all waste is purified to WHO standards before being returned to the ground water table, thus helping to keep underground streams clean and ensuring waste water from the hotel will not contribute to the destruction of Bali’s reefs.

Tamu Seseh is actively involved in the local village council, village activities, supporting the local temple, and is in the process of establishing a ‘Villa Owners Association’ to establish a platform for, amongst others, supporting local schools and improving the environment.
