Batur Natural Hot Spring Water: Engaging with Paradise's Nature

By I Nengah Subadra, PhD


Batur Natural Hot Spring Water is sited in the slop of Batur Mountain precisely at Toya Bungkah Village, Sub-district of Kintamani, Bangli Regency, Bali, Indonesia. It is only about a two-hour drive from the tourist hub of Kuta or just about half an hour from the capital town of Bangli Regency.



The natural hot spring water at Toya Bungkah Village is a hidden gem in Bali. The water is sourced from the slopes of Batur Mountain, making it rich in minerals that are beneficial for the skin and body. The location is perfect for those who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the tourist hub in Kuta. The drive to Toya Bungkah Village takes about two hours, but it's worth it once you arrive at this serene spot. The hot spring water is surrounded by lush greenery, creating a peaceful atmosphere that is perfect for relaxation. You can soak in the warm water while enjoying the stunning views of the mountain and lake nearby. If you're looking for a unique experience in Bali, visiting the natural hot springs at Toya Bungkah Village should be on your list.

If you're looking for a unique and relaxing experience in Bali, then the water at Toya Bungkah Village should definitely be on your list. Batur Natural Hot Spring Water is a must-visit destination for tourists who want to engage with purely hot water springing from the earth. The site boasts three major pools that are located within the area of Batur Natural Hot Spring Water, which totals about 1000 square metres. This natural hot spring is known for its therapeutic properties and is believed to have healing powers. Soaking in warm water can help relieve stress, improve blood circulation, and even alleviate muscle pain. The serene surroundings of the hot springs also add to the overall experience, making it a perfect place to unwind and rejuvenate. Whether you're travelling solo or with friends and family, a visit to Batur Natural Hot Spring Water is definitely worth your time.



Tourists can swim for hours in the hot pools. One is located in the main entrance near the ticket counter, while the other is located right on the bank of Batur Lake, where tourists can also see a spectacular view of Lake Batur and the traditional village called Trunyan, which is widely recognised as the native village of the Balinese and whose citizens practise a different way of life compared to most Balinese people residing on the remaining island of Bali.



The Bank of Batur Lake is a must-visit destination for tourists who want to experience the beauty of Bali. The lake offers a spectacular view that is unmatched anywhere else on the island. In addition to the stunning scenery, visitors can also explore the traditional village of Trunyan, which is widely recognised as the native home of Balinese people who practise a different way of life compared to most other residents of Bali. Trunyan is known for its unique customs and traditions, which are rooted in ancient Balinese culture. Visitors can learn about these customs by interacting with locals and observing their daily activities. Whether you're interested in history, culture, or simply want to relax and take in the natural beauty of Bali, the Bank of Batur Lake and Trunyan Village are two destinations that should not be missed.

Batur Natural Hot Spring Water is managed by the local traditional village. It employed hundreds of local people, occupying all positions ranging from basic to managerial, which allowed ordinary citizens to gain economic benefits from tourism developed in their regions. This is the best practise for community-based tourism in Bali, where 100% of their employees are recruited from local people. Community-based tourism is a powerful tool for economic development in regions that rely on tourism. Bali's approach to community-based tourism is particularly noteworthy, as it prioritises hiring local people for all positions within the industry. This means that hundreds of ordinary citizens have been able to secure jobs ranging from basic to managerial positions, which has allowed them to gain economic benefits from the growth of tourism in their region. By prioritising local hiring practises, Bali has created a sustainable model for tourism that benefits both the industry and the community. This approach ensures that profits generated by tourism are reinvested back into the local economy rather than syphoned off by outside interests. It also helps to preserve local culture and traditions, as tourists are able to engage with and learn from members of the community who have a deep understanding of their cultural heritage. Overall, Bali's approach to community-based tourism serves as an excellent example of how sustainable development can be achieved through collaboration between industry and local communities.

The Managing Director of Batur Natural Hot Sring Water argues that the real application of the community-based tourism concept at this particular tourism site does not only aid the government in solving the unemployment problem but also aims to reduce the number of people migrating from the village to the cities where most work opportunities are available. Natural Hot Spring Water is a unique tourism site that has the potential to bring about positive change in the local community. By implementing a community-based tourism concept, the government can not only address the issue of unemployment but also reduce migration from rural areas to cities. This approach will allow the locals to benefit from the tourism industry by providing them with job opportunities and encouraging them to preserve their cultural heritage. Additionally, it will promote sustainable development by involving the community in decision-making processes and ensuring that tourism activities do not harm the environment. Furthermore, community-based tourism can foster social cohesion by promoting cultural exchange between tourists and locals. In conclusion, implementing a community-based tourism concept at Natural Hot Spring Water can have far-reaching benefits for both the local community and the environment.

More importantly, the involvement of the locals at Batur Hot Spring Water encourages local people to love their village by staying in their homes and still being able to practise the traditional activities that bond local people in the region. This involvement of the locals at Batur Hot Spring Water has had a significant impact on the community. By encouraging local people to love their village, they are more likely to stay in their homes and continue practising traditional activities that are deeply rooted in the region's culture. This not only preserves the traditions and customs of the area but also helps to create a sense of pride and identity among the locals. Furthermore, it has also helped boost the local economy by providing employment opportunities for those who work at the hot springs or provide services for tourists. The involvement of locals has also helped to create a more authentic experience for visitors, as they are able to witness and participate in traditional activities that have been passed down through generations. Overall, this initiative has had a positive impact on both the community and visitors alike, fostering a deeper appreciation for local culture and traditions while supporting sustainable tourism practises.



Enterance TicketIt costs only IDR 150 000 per person for adult foreign tourists to enjoy this natural hot spring water. Children will be offered discount for 50%. In addition, Indonesian visitors shall be charge of IDR 60 000 per person. Meanwhile, local people of Batur (Toya Bungkah, Songan villages ) are free of charge.


This pricing policy is applied to offer sense of equitability among the interest parties. Local people really need to be free from enterance ticket as they are the "owners" of the site.


Domestic tourists including Balinese should contribute to the development of Batur Hot Spring Water by paying a little amount of money to enjoy this natural attraction.


The foreign tourist should pay more as they are having higher travel budget than the locals and this could be served as the way the international tourists do to help any people in the globe as the real and best practice for "responsible tourist" contributing to local economic development as well as tourism site preservation. Of course, international tourists will have better service such as welcoming drink, gazebo, etc.




 Domestic and international tourists enjoying "hot" pool


Tourists who look for hot spring water in Bali are really recommended to visit Batur Natural Hot Spring Water which is also known as the only one healing hot sring water in Bali. Tourists will experience such a great and memorable travel memory on this paradise island.


I have been to this Hot Spring Water more than 5 times with family, freinds and students. I just love the site as it is very natural and affordable.

Bali is very popular for its temples. It ranges from family temple to public temple. There are a number of rites as a part of Balinese culture that can be seen while visiting temples across the island so-called "authentic". This would be much greater rather than enjoying staged attractions which purposely performed for tourists. Explore the island and enjoy these unique attractions.






Holiday in Bali will never be boring as there are a number of activities to engage with such as swimming, sunbathing, dolphin watching, relaxing on the beach, or showering in natural hot spring water. These activities will refresh your mind and refine your energy.
