Wawawewe began when our car was swapped for a piece of land in Lipah Village, one of the first few businesses to be established in the Amed area in 1996. At this time the roads were rough and impassable in places, with no bridge over the river. Family and friends came together and helped clear the land, keeping as many palms as possible. With respect for the land, one palm in particular needed a special Hindu ceremony to ensure that a new home was found for the good spirit living within it. We were able to create a traditional, rustic bar, restaurant, and four bungalows. A successful approach that has enabled us to expand and add to the Wawawewe family!
The Wawawewe team are our family. Everyone is committed to providing all our guests with the most memorable Balinese experience during their time with us. We also want our staff to learn, progress and develop in their life and we support and help them to understand who they are and find their own strength, especially during times of recent crisis, the eruption of mount Agung and Covid.
A few of the staff in the photo have now moved on, some are dive masters, others have their own businesses and of course are married with families. The next generation are being trained and employed in the Wawawewe family. Progression !
Simply, our aim is to provide a truly memorable Balinese experience at an affordable price for all.
