The development of Budi Sun Resort
As I first stood on this property looking over to the sea, I knew then: I will build a vacation resort here for all, which captures the feeling of freedom and independence.
Every morning to awake on this land, and to fall asleep here in the evening, that would be a dream fulfilled, one I'd like to experience and share with other people.
This beautiful location directly on the sea, the view of the open waters, the unbelievable and indescribable starscape in the southern night sky. I can experience it all here.
The view to the Flores Sea awoke an old dream in me, the desire dive these waters. From a good friend in Germany, I knew of the quote of Jacques Cousteau:
"The best way to observe fish, is to become a fish."
Back then, I had no idea how to realize this vision of mine, but I was motivated and determined to go through with it.
Now I stand before the results of my dream, the first bungalows are completed and the first guests can come. We have 6 gorgeous rooms to rent, rooms where you can sense the air of Flores, the light breeze blowing through the flower- and herbal gardens and the smell of wood and bamboo. We made an effort to use as little concrete as possible and to work with natural building materials at the resort.
For us, sustainability is important. For every tree we cut down, we've planted 3 in its place. We work with an ecological sensibility. Absolutely nothing is disposed of in the sea and we plant our own vegetables and herbs. Our animals our maintained from this ecological standpoint, receiving fresh eggs for breakfast from our free-range chickens.
I am certain, at this wondrous place, on my island of Flores, with such a resort we can only have success as long as our guests are satisfied and feel comfortable and at ease in our familial environment.
We've made it our number one priority to make sure your valuable vacation days become true and lasting experiences, the days at our resort are to be unforgettable.
We decided to keep it down to a family business, because only then can we assure to provide the services we would expect ourselves. I want you to come and experience the indescribable feeling of security and wonder that I had my first time being at this property. Look over the sea with its reefs, its wonderful variety of fish and coral. Hike through the jungle or marvel in the majesty our mountains and volcanoes.
Experience gratitude at its fullest extent, for this gift from mother earth, a gift for us to enjoy for a little while.
