The Destination

Sulawesi, formerly known as Celebes is one of the 5 main Indonesian islands (with Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Papua) and the 11th-largest island worldwide. Jeneponto experiences a very long dry season from April to November when the wind blows non-stop. As a result, despite large fertile soils, crops can be grown only during a short window of 3-4 months from December to March, watered by the wet monsoon. Facing these difficult conditions, during the dry season, Mallasoro residents are mostly seaweed farmers who diversify their activities from salt production. Untouched by tourism, we encourage you to ride a bike or a SUP to go meet people and consume their local products along the way … it will be much appreciated by Jeneponto people.

The Experience

Exclusive and charming resort right on the shore. Jump from your bed onto the kitespot. Enjoy endless rides beside your comfy nest and your beloved ones. An authentic and unique indonesian experience.

Accommodation

Buildings are all hand-made by artisans of the surrounding villages using local materials from Sulawesi itself. All bungalows are made of “biti” and “jati”, indigenous species of wood from South-Sulawesi, famous for being used to build Indonesian traditional two-mast sailing ship called “phinisi” by the Konjo tribe. These boats are now widely spread among Indonesian archipelago and were awarded of “Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Heritage” by UNESCO in 2017. All constructions are built in pure Indonesian style called “Joglo” with a very specific roof shape aimed to keep temperature cooler and using traditional “genteng” tiles. You will find also a touch of Batik fabrics – “Batik” is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied on cloth giving the famous traditional pattern used in Indonesia. Each big island has its own specific pattern. Furniture are made of teak wood first quality from Sulawesi and Java.
