You look around the room and can’t help but wonder…

 

What elements of your vision will come to life in this container?

What will feel more alive in you?

 

There’s only one way to find out.

Welcome to Experience House Bali.

OUR SANCTUARY

Sumberkima Hill is a calm, inspiring retreat that hosts yoga and meditation groups, design enthusiasts, writers and artists, bird watchers and botanists and anyone who is seeking an authentic immersion in Balinese culture and nature.

Each of our villas is unique in its design, view and amenities. From intricate, traditional joglos to minimalist box-style homes to stylish artistic pads, we have a range of villas sprawled across the hill, each offering a different mood. Our villas range from small and simple to big and luxurious.

AMENITIES

 

WELLNESS

When in Bali, rejuvenating body and soul is of great importance! Our yoga shala has the most breathtaking views all around. In the midst of greenery and sea views, you will learn to find your flow through a simple practice. There is also a range of affordable spa treatments to enhance your experience, from beauty therapies to cleansing massages and reflexology.

 

LOCAL IMPACT 

Our hosts have partnered with locals to set up a reef restoration project, Metamorfosa. They are also are helping in the reforestation of the hill, employing our staff directly from the village to reduce urban migration, offering English lessons and doing their best to ensure that the community prospers along with us.

 

NATURE 

Our location in the mountains of North West Bali, with Barat National Park in our backyard, makes the area around us perfect for hikes through the wilderness.

We work together with the local chief to find trails all over the rolling hills that expose you to jungly thickets, sweeping views of the bay, and more! You can pass through hidden villages where tourists rarely go and take in the beauty of abundant nature and culture on every trail.

 

FOOD 

Chef prepared meals using seasonal produce that is sourced from organic, local and fresh farmlands, some of which are freshly picked and prepared from the permaculture vegetable garden! Our menu is curated to nourish our attendees and ensure they feel their absolute best, while experiencing local culinary culture throughout the wide variety of Balinese flavors.

Your Chamber

Each of our villas is unique in its design, view and amenities. From intricate, traditional joglos to minimalist box-style homes to stylish artistic pads, we have a range of villas sprawled across the hill, each offering a different mood. Our villas range from small and simple to big and luxurious.

PROGRAMMING

The majority of programming at XH is attendee-led, which provides a platform to experiment, leads to a deeply giving and generous culture, and results in unexpected experiences and moments we could never plan for. 

XH IS A SANDBOX

 

To give you a sense of what’s in store, here’s some of the highlights from our last programs:

 

  • mastermind sessions, where the collective brainpower, resources, and connections of 25+ housemates were used to solve each other’s greatest challenges

 

  • meditation, yoga, acroyoga, breathwork, and workout classes taught by expert attendees

 

  • daily silk and acrobat classes hosted by one of Brookly’s finest circus performers

 

  • writing workshops held by an award winning poet

 

  • Open Mic Nights with performances by our in house talent.

 

  • an “Amazing Race” around the colonial city of Antigua that ended in a mixology competition

 

  • a sunset dance party on the summit of a 13,000 ft active volcano 

 

  • A four day excursion into the Sahara Desert

 

  • an extravagant Arabian dinner involving 4+ days of food preparation, Aladdin-style costumes, an aerial silk performance, walking on broken glass, and a dance party 

 

  • TED-style talks (dubbed “Fuego Talks”) where attendees shared their stories and expertise. 

 

Of course, no XH will ever be the same. And that’s part of the magic. ✨

WHO ELSE WILL BE THERE?

 

We won’t release our roster until we get closer to June. But for now, you can see who has attended in the past.

You’re a leader within the world of experience design

You’re passionate about creating experiences that inspire awe and foster human connection.

 

You’re down to co-create

FAQS

What's the work setup?

This is a “work hard play hard” culture where you can continue to do your normal work throughout the month, but in an incredible environment with other like-minded creators. We’ll have dedicated workspaces, rooms for private video calls, designated work times, and possibly even facilitated work sprints.

How much structure/programming will there be?

This is a co-created gathering, which means a majority of programmed events will be attendee-led. This is a unique opportunity for you to share your gifts, collaborate, and experiment in a safe environment with people who will both love on you and challenge you to improve. You can expect things like opening and closing ceremonies, attendee-led talks and workshops, meditation, yoga, breathwork, dance classes, jam sessions, recorded “lightning talks”, nightly family dinners, co-created experiential events, and anything else the group decides to create.

Will there be an extension?

Half of the attendees at XH1 didn’t want the month to end and stayed for a 2-week extension. This time, we’re offering a 1-week integration & decompression experience for those interested in an extra week of bonding and integration. Book a flexible ticket in the case you choose to extend your stay!

Are there scholarships available?

Yes! We strive to make Experience House accessible to amazing humans for whom pricing may be an obstacle. For that reason we’ve created a limited number of partial scholarships to support humans we’d like to bet on. 

 

Filmmaker & Photographer’s Scholarship

Do you want an opportunity to make amazing content and work with our fantastic team? Mention this in your application!

 

Local’s Scholarship

We’re looking for locals who are very familiar with Marrakesh & can provide the group with a taste of the real and authentic Morocco, which other tourists don’t necessarily have access to. You know your way around and love to share that with others?  We want you!  

 

Up and Coming Rock Star Scholarship

Do you have something special to offer unlike anything else? We trust our attendees to bring the magic to Experience House. If this relates, we’d love to hear from you! 

What will be different at XH4?
  1. The people. No more than 30% of attendees will be returners
  2. A larger focus on content creation. We’ll have a dedicated content team whose sole job is to amplify your personal brand + messages through audio, photo, and video. For those interested, it’s our goal to leverage our time together to accelerate the development of your mission and/or business.
  3. A heavy focus on wellness. We’ll be deeply exploring the question of “how can we feel most alive?” Reem Haddad (yoga instructor, holistic wellness expert, and our Exec. Producer) is designing a wellness program tailor-made to our attendees’ wellness goals.
  4. We’re bursting the bubble. We’ll be meeting and welcoming guest mentors in the world of experience design, having dinners + events with Bali’s top artists, entrepreneurs, and changemakers.
