Andaya House – This is HEAVEN

Grand entrances are the BEST!!  When you walk through the oversized teak pivot door to enter Andaya House you are immediately struck by the line of sight that takes you down the 15m infinity pool and into the turquoise waters beyond.  Andaya House has been designed with precision to take advantage of its incredible location, with front row seats to Playgrounds surf break (and beyond to Lacerations and Shipwrecks), views of Mt Agung and the northern stretch of Jungut Batu Beach.

If you think the outdoor features of Andaya House are breath-taking then you will be further awe-struck by the stunning interiors which have a subtle elegance that combine raw materials and luxury finishings.  On the lower level, limestone rock walls and natural stone paving surrounding the pool areas.  From here you step into 4 master bedrooms with iron wood floors, adjoining ensuites and open air showers.

SEAWEED FARMING RETURNS TO LEMBONGAN, Lembongan Hotels, Lembongan Resorts, Lembongan Bungalows, Lembongan Villas, The Lembongan Traveller, Nusa Lembongan Hotels, Nusa Lembongan Resorts, Nusa Lembongan Bungalows, Nusa Lembongan Villas,

Seaweed Farming returns to Lembongan

Seaweed Farming returns to Lembongan

COVID-19 has brought about many changes to our world as we knew it.  No truer for the local people of Nusa Lembongan & Ceningan.  As most of the population’s income was previously directly or indirectly derived from tourism, COVID-19 has caused some serious challenges.

In the typical spirit of the locals, whose Hindu faith always guides their journey, they looked within their own shores for opportunities to generate an income.  A businessman from Surabaya introduced seaweed farming to Lembongan in 1984, with the first cultivations taking place in Jungut Batu Bay. It was not so long ago (for many only 10 years), that seaweed farming was a major incomer earner for many people.  You too may remember the patch work of plots that created the ocean landscape in Jungut Batu, the Mangrove and in the channel between Lembongan & Ceningan.  For people who have been visiting the islands prior to 2010 seaweed farms, the harvesting process and drying in preparation for sale are iconic island memories.

As a result, seaweed farming in Lembongan has now re-emerged and the older generation have been key to helping re-establish it as a sustainable industry, educating and passing on their knowledge to younger family members who have only known tourism as an income stream.

The locals are realistic in their optimism for the return of tourism,  understanding it will not recover quickly.  As tourism has as good as disappeared for the last 6 months the demand for seaweed seedlings  and dried product is on a steady increase.

However not everyone is a seaweed farmer or knows how to cultivate seaweed.  The Lembongan Traveller’s Digital Marketing Manager spent a few days with some of the local seaweed farmers to gain an insight to the industry and techniques used so we could share the process with you.

Type of Seaweed

There are many types of seaweed that can be grown in Nusa Lembongan, one of which is green Katoni (eucheuma cottoni) seaweed which is commonly grown in the area around the Mangrove, other varieties are grown in Nusa Ceningan.

Katoni seaweed

Setting up a Seaweed Farm

The farmers initially buy seaweed seeds from Nusa Penida a 5 meter lengths of rope.  They then plant it on their ocean “land” to create a “box” which range in size, but are usually around 5 x 50 metres.  Each seaweed farm “box” is made up of rows of wooden supports and ropes. The seaweed seedlings are attached to these rows. The “box” contains approximately 100 bundles of seaweed.  It is very important that the ocean space chosen is accessible during high and low tide, this change of tide and water flow is also very important to the growth and productivity of the crop. Each “box” is marked with flags attached to wooden stakes.  Farmers attend their box daily at low tide between harvest times to check on any damage that may have been caused during high tide.

Harvesting

Seaweed can be harvested 30 days after planting and is usually harvested every full moon or new moon. Two crops are planted within a month so farmers will harvest every 15 days. Depending on the size of the each famer’s box, it can take up to 10 days for the harvesting process as this is generally done in the mornings on low tides. However, when low tides fall in the middle of the night farmers will spend midnight hours with head torches attending, it is a laborious and not for the faint hearted, as farmers are constantly exposed to the elements and weather.  In the mornings they cut the seaweed to take it  ashore and in the afternoon low tide they create new seedling rows for the next harvest.  Traditional Jukung boats are used by farmers to access their plots and transport the seaweed.

The farmers using traditional boat to bring the seaweeds seed to the “box” in the middle of ocean.

 

 

At the time of harvesting, the seaweed will have grown to 3 times the size of when it was first attached to the ropes.  During each harvest all of the seaweed from the rope supports are removed to be sorted, smaller & damages pieces are set aside for drying and more established growths are re-attached together in bundles of 2-3 pieces along the supports for the next months harvest.

Drying

These smaller and damaged pieces are laid out in the sun to be dried, which takes 3 days

Ready for sale

After drying, farmers will gather the seaweed to sell to a “seaweed collector”.  The “seaweed collectors” live on Lembongan and then transport it to Nusa Penida where it is on sold to export traders to make its way to be used in cosmetics.  Usually farmers can produce 400kg of dry seaweed, per month which currently sells for IDR 12,000 / kg.  There is also the opportunity for them to sell seedlings to new seaweed farmers, the price of 100 seedlings is around IDR 5 million.

Seaweed farming into the future

We are excited to see so many locals re-entering the seaweed farming industry and hope it will continue well into the future to operate in unison with tourism when travel resumes.  The Lembongan Traveller is here to support the Lembongan & Ceningan seaweed farming industry and its prosperity.  This unique way of farming requires no pesticides or fertilizers. Seaweed cultivation also provides environmental benefits including:

  • Absorbing carbon dioxide ( green house gas) – one hectare of sea can be used to produce annually 40 tonnes of dry seaweed which will absorb 20+ tonnes of green house gas during cultivation
  • Wastes can be used as fertilizers for land based agriculture
  • Seaweed can only be grown in a healthy environment, so seaweed farmers will actively participate in maintaining beach and foreshore cleanliness

We are keen to support the community with looking into more opportunities for seaweed farmers and collectors, such as potentially providing seaweed for products being developed by Evoware – edible cups and packaging made from seaweed….we have contacted them to see if Lembongan’s seaweed is combatable.

COVID-19 & Seaweed Farming unite

Katoni seaweed is a source of carrageenan, a gelling agent in both foods and cosmetics. This brings a twist that could see COVID-19 and Lembongan seaweed farmers unite as it can be used in the production of hand santizer.  See link below to an article that includes a method of making santizer using seaweed:

The Tamarind Resort Nusa Lembongan  – The new kid on the block

The Tamarind Resort, is Nusa Lembongan’s newest resort and is delivering fantastic accommodation and facilities, giving Lembongan visitors another choice when it comes to  affordable villas and luxury suites.

Within hours of arriving we felt very much “at home”, the staff are delightful and offer an in-room check in service so you are immediately in the air-conditioned comfort of your suite or villa.

Resort Overview:

3 villas, 12 suites, 2 infinity pools, kids pool, restaurant, gym, day spa, suitable for families & couples

Located on the hill in Jungut Batu, a short 2 minute walk to the beach front and lots of restaurants, The Tamarind Resort Nusa Lembongan is perfectly situated, especially for those who prefer not to use scooters as everything is in walking distance.

Named after a 300+ year old Tamarind tree which canopies the reception, the tree has dutifully been protected and also thoughtfully incorporated into elements of the guest experience to give significance of its importance.

The Tamarind Resort has all the facilities and services of a large resort yet offers the intimacy of a boutique hotel.

The two infinity pools (and a kids pool) give you plenty of options to lounge poolside, and when you are ready to take the holiday mode to the next level the Amlika Day Spa provides divine massages and other exquisite treatments.

For the active ones in the family, the resort gym is the answer and is one of the best fitted out gym’s we have ever been to, it has got EVERTHING you need, so there is no excuses not to burn off a few cocktail calories!

White on white modern interiors, with 50 shades of blue views, this stunning property is a little bit Hamptons, a tad bit Maldives and a lot of Mykonos. The moment I walked through the white wooden panelled door, I fell completely in love with everything in this place, its all and more that I adore about island holidays.

Rumah Putih is split level meaning every single inch of this villa takes full advantages of the stunning sparkling views of Lembongan bay.

The ground level showcases a whiter than white kitchen, a gorgeous open air living and dining area, a large air-conditioned cinema room (yep you read right, a cinema room), a deep blue beautiful infinity pool surrounded by sun loungers and 2 perfectly placed bale’s where you can lay, read and snooze. And of course there are 2 deluxe and dreamy bedrooms both overlooking the water and both with enormous ensuites, featuring large bathtubs, double vanity, ample drawers and closet space to hang your Camilla kaftans.

The upper levels feature 2 additional beautiful bedrooms, ensuites, outside showers and separating the two is a generously sized plunge pool!  The sunset sundeck overlooks everything and is the perfect place to take in the breathtaking views surrounding this gorgeous villa.

Rumah Putih literally has all you would expect in a luxury villa, and I mean it has it all, from waffle weave bath gowns, beautiful bath products, hairdryers, a wine fridge, an icemaker but best of all four-gorgeous helpful staff to assist with everything. I need to tell you another secret….. they make the tastiest nasi gorgeng and can mix a lychee martini better than the bartenders at kudeta.

I can honestly say I found my perfect match when it comes to somewhere to stay on Lembongan – Rumah Putih is the ultimate island villa.
