alamBatu - Beach Bungalow Resort is located near the volcano "Gunung Agung" that has been asleep for more than 50 years until a few weeks ago. On friday, 22nd of September, the warning level was raised by the government to the highest level and the whole area within a radius of 12km around the crater was evacuated, including our whole staff and whole village of Baturinggit.

So far the volcano has not erupted but threatens to do so anytime. The villagers including our staff are located in a refugee camp far enough from the danger zone. So far there is enough food supplied by the government and alamBatu but this might change very soon if the situation does not calm down.

We would like to support the village of Baturinggit and of course our staff members who were always so welcoming to us and our guests. All donations will be used to buy food, clothes, medicine, accommodation and eventually the relocation back to their homes.

Thank you very much for your help! Donate


As we informed you earlier we had to evacuate Alam Batu - Beach Bungalow Resort last Friday night. The volcano has not erupted so far but is still very active until now. We are still on level 4 alert (evacuation level) and this will probably stay like this for 14 days starting last Friday. We will keep you posted ...
