Plant Trees And Watch Communities Grow

In February of this year, Solemen launched the The Moringa Project, a plan to partner with local farmers to create sustainable economic solutions. It’s a community based initiative, intended to give Solebuddies the opportunity to help themselves with natural resources that are readily available, naturally renewable, and eco-friendly.

Moringa is a native plant that grows well in our tropical climate. Hailed as the next ‘superfood’. Moringa (locally known as ‘kelor’) has been used in traditional Balinese society for generations as a medicinal herb and food supplement. It’s available at most local markets, with other businesses packaging this powerhouse in powder into capsule form to sell to expats and tourists.

One of the better qualities of Moringa is that it requires little to no additional water source and it releases nitrogen into the ground, literally fertilising itself! There’s a lot to like about this leafy green plant – super healthy, easy on the environment, and a viable source of sustainable income for Bali’s rural population.

Solemen is working with four families that they currently support in four different regencies on the island to establish a grower’s co-op. These families will receive seedlings and training in how to cultivate, grow, harvest, process and package Moringa.

One of the problems these growers must overcome is the supply chain. When the Moringa is harvested, the only place it can be sold is in local markets, leaving them with a whole lot of plant and not enough customers. Solemen supports growers by buying the product back from them and giving them to other Solebuddies as healthy supplements. But there’s more that can be done! Visit the Solemen website to find more information about how you can get involved

Winter Is Coming……

Been missing that weekly fix of medieval magic, feuding dynasties, dragons and dark battles in the dead of winter? Fear not fantasy fans because the 8th and final (yes, final!!) season of Game of Thrones is on its way and you’ll be able to see every episode on the big screen at Finns Recreation Club!

It feels like forever since the Thrones graced our screens and with only six episodes in the final season, you can’t miss a minute. Far too exciting to watch at home on the living room telly, join Thrones fans on the day beds at Splash and see the action larger than life. With the pools still and slides silent yet looming in the darkness, watch from the comfort of your day bed as the drama unfolds and Winterfell and Kings Landing light up the screen!

Entry is free and for the first episode there’s no minimum spend required, but who wouldn’t want to tuck into some tasty nibbles and a cocktail to celebrate the beginning of the end of perhaps one of the best television series..EVER! With all of the hype surrounding GOT’s final series, space at Splash is sure to be scarce for the first episode on April 15, so arrive early to secure a spot for the best view of the screen and get comfortable as the credits roll from 7.30pm. For more information about watching Game of Thrones at Finns, email

Eggs-tra Long Easter Lunch @ Bistro C

Long lunches are a weekend staple in Bali and there’s no better way to enjoy Easter Sunday than with a lazy-grazy lunch at Bistro C. Many lay claim to the longest brunch on the island but none come close to the nine hour food fest that will be available at Finns Recreation Club come Sunday, April 21. Usually a five hour affair, this year’s Easter Sunday celebrations will run from noon until 9pm! Come for lunch, stay for dinner or simply graze all day for fabulous value at Rp. 450,000 per adult and Rp. 150,000 per child (aged 3 – 12y)

In addition to their popular Sunday Roast, Easter Sunday includes a tempting free flow buffet complete with crispy baked pork belly, slow roasted tenderloin, seafood kebabs, beef pie, Yorkshire puds, salad station and all of those irresistible trimmings. It wouldn’t be Easter without sweet seduction from the desserts table with walnut brownies, Easter Pav and home made Hot Cross Buns, then join the kids and the big-eared Bunny for an Easter Egg Hunt at 2pm!

Get the family to work up an appetite at Splash Water Park throughout the day. Lunch + Splash Packages are available at Rp. 800,000 for adults and Rp. 380,000 for kids. Easter celebrations also feature a midday performance by the children from Jodie O’Shea, live music from 6 – 8pm and an Easter Movie at 7pm – just the ticket for little tykes to wind down after a day on the slides and time for big kids to enjoy an extra sundowner. As if all of isn’t enough to whet your Easter appetite, Bistro C offers a range of cocktails as well as a 2 for 1 deal on bottles of Moet & Chandon.
