Sanak Retreat


Sanak is a small retreat/boutique hotel located in the north of Bali with a philosophy of “Handpicked With Humanity” in mind. We are working with the village chief, the local primary school, and the community to assist the underprivileged with items they require.

Our property has been developed by a French philanthropist who is gifting the retreat back to a family within the community as soon as we have a return on the development. We are working with the local, hotel school to develop and train students for jobs in tourism. We are investing great time and resources into assisting our people to find their full potential.

Initiatives Supported

All the needs are current as of September 22, 2018

Listed on this page are the specific needs requested by the community project(s) so you can choose exactly what to pack for a purpose and express your gratitude to the local community with the supplies you take them.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.

Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
