The Baliem Valley Resort is located at 1900 meters above sea level, in the Central Highlands of Papua, part of New Guinea Island in the most east part of Indonesian Archipelago. This 3-star resort resides on 1,100 hectares near the tribal village of Desa Sekan, is enriched with magnificent views of the forest and surrounded by beautiful untouched nature. Enjoy trekking through the orchid garden, alpine rainforests and visit the remote Dani villages.

The unique open-air lounge is surrounded with mountains scenery. Actually, the construction is modeled after the tree houses of the Korowai tribe, although our lounge is built on reinforced concrete. Enjoy a fresh breakfast or a sweet romantic candle light dinner in this unforgettable setting. The lounge is colorized by green cloudy mountain and lush tropical forest in the morning and by the moon and the stars at night. The loveliest memory you ever have.

Orchid Meadows

Have a wonderful walk through the natural gardens around the resort refreshing your body, mind and soul. The most special characteristic of this garden is that the plants are grown naturally in the grazing land. You will find there are many varieties of orchids in Baliem that you will not find in any other land. To preserve the plants, we are not allowed to pick the flower or to take the plant out of the garden.
