The values of Floating Leaf extend beyond the resort, rooted in a deep commitment to Bali’s environment, its people, and sustainable tourism. Community outreach and sustainability are pillars of the resort. The resort’s charitable endeavours support the local community, especially during challenging times like the COVID-19 pandemic. Floating Leaf operates under the fundamental Balinese Hindu doctrine of Tri Hita Karana, embracing harmonious relationships between humans and God, humans and other humans, and humans and nature. This balanced approach leads to harmony and prosperity.
Floating Leaf’s co-founders, Professor Mikaku Doliveck and Maryam Putu Doliveck, bring their respective expertise and connections to the resort. Mikaku, an award-winning educator and photographer, has been visiting Bali for over two decades. His passion for Indonesia and its hidden wonders enhances the guest experience. Maryam, a member of the Balinese Royal Family of Karangasm, adds a touch of traditional Balinese culture and wellness to the resort. Her deep connections on the island provide unique opportunities for guests to partake in ceremonies, palace visits, and other experiences not available on typical tours.
Guests can choose from various accommodations, including Pool View Rooms with wrap-around balconies, Garden Rooms set in a lush organic garden, or Family Bungalow Rooms for extra privacy and comfort. All rooms are well-appointed with top-of-the-line amenities, modern luxury, and convenience, yet maintain a peaceful Balinese ambience. The rounded design of the Pool View rooms, inspired by neuroscience research, creates an atmosphere of relaxation and comfort, perfect for meditation and creativity.
Floating Leaf’s two full spas, Melati Spa, offer a full range of luxurious spa services, combining state-of-the-art Western techniques with centuries-old Balinese secret treatments. Expert therapists use organic oils, herbs, and aromas to nurture harmony and bliss for guests.
