Staying at the Ulaman Eco Retreat in Bali is one of those experiences during our trips to better discover the islands, which we’ll never forget. Not only for the accommodation itself, but because it combines the essence of what we are looking for in ecotourism; the off the path lush landscape, innovative sustainable architecture, spa services, yoga shala, sustainable practices, and farm to table wellness cuisine.
We took the time to sit down with the Canadian born owner of Ulaman Eco wellness Retreat. Dino Magnatta is a former restaurateur and a savvy businessman in search of creating a haven to welcome a community of like-minded people.
We met him at Ulaman for a rejuvenating and relaxing weekend.
The Ulaman Eco Retreat Story
It all began in 2019 when Dino Magnatta searched for a remote location that reminded him of that Ubud ‘feel.’ He was looking for a piece of land with a river, a jungle, and some rice fields to build his private villa. When Dino came across a hidden gem with a private waterfall in Kaba Kaba, 30 minutes from Ubud and Canggu, he knew he had found his place.
