Our Staff and The Local Community
The creation of The Permata Ayung Private Estate involved many people and not the least of all the local villagers. Many of these families owned the land where the estate is build for generations. Henk de Vries wanted to give this to the community that gave him so much, thus 90% of the staff are from this village. His commitment of being part of this Balinese community has extended beyond giving them jobs.
Training, education, opportunities and support makes The Permata Ayung Private Estate an important member of this traditional community. The organic gardens are a source of food and education about sustainable living. Generations of local families are employed in roles that include gardening, housekeeping, cooking and kitchen preparation.
A spacious foot path has been built for the villagers to access the river for their ceremonies as they have done for generations. Being a part of and supporting, this local community is a source of great pride and fulfillment of the owner Henk de Vries. He knows the villagers by name and extends his support to their families and celebrates with them their religious events.
