The story of Alassari Plantation is as fascinating as the resort itself, and it all begins with the chance meeting of its visionary owners, Craig and Valerie. Craig, a rugged adventurer with a love for nature, had always dreamt of owning a remote piece of land where he could indulge in his passion for sustainable farming and conservation. Valerie, a free-spirited artist with a penchant for adventure, shared Craig's love for the great outdoors and had a deep-rooted connection with Bali's rich culture.


It was during one of Craig's solo expeditions through Bali's dense rainforests that he stumbled upon a hidden valley, blanketed by verdant foliage and pristine streams. Mesmerised by the beauty of the place, Craig felt an instant connection and knew that he had stumbled upon something truly special. Determined to turn his dream into reality, he acquired the land and set his sights on transforming it into a sustainable eco-resort.

However, Craig soon realised that building a resort in such a remote location was no easy feat.  Fate intervened when Craig’s car broke down in remote Western Australia and he met Valerie during a chance encounter at an art gallery. The two instantly hit it off and discovered their shared passion for adventure, nature, and sustainability. Valerie, an accomplished artist with a keen eye for design, brought a unique perspective to Craig's vision. Together, they embarked on a journey to create a resort that would be an epitome of eco-luxury, blending the natural beauty of the surroundings with sustainable practices and local culture.Make the time to sit back, put your feet up and read Craig & Valerie's story in detail as written by Craig in your room's compendium.
