The Tribewanted Experience
Each of our communities is different, driven by the local culture and environment. But the core experience is the same wherever you join us.
Local & international - all together, immersive cross-cultural living.
From compost toilets to wind turbines, discover the future of how we will live.
NOURISHMENT. Open Kitchen.
Homemade local food. Good times together.
Private, boutique accommodations from bunk rooms to apartments + there's always a hammock for you.
Why? Mindsets shift through community.
Breaks that revive, build new friendships and kickstart ideas
Whether it's to get away from a busy life for a little while, explore a new culture and place, or the curiousity to spend time immersed in a different way of living - people join us for many different reasons.
Each location offers activities and a vibe that reflects the local way of life.
Making things better
We support projects that empower the communities we live in. Through tourism and our tribe memberships we've been able to support development at our locations by creating jobs and community health, education, business & environmental projects.
We measure and focus on building sustainable livelihoods, improving education, our teams well-being, & supporting local businesses.
Investing in the future of how we all could live
Joining the tribe is not just about taking an inspiring trip.
Alongside the cultural immersion we're working to build projects that can run as self-sufficiently as possible - we measure how we source our energy, our food & water, and how we re-use our waste.
When you stay with us, you will have the opportunity to learn about how our locations were built, renovated, and run.
+ Fishermen. Artists. Permaculturists. Designers. Entrepreneurs. Chefs.
Our amazing community of Tribe Members is what makes it special. Each of them adds his or her unique touch to the community, making the flavour of every Tribewanted experience unique. Yet they all share some traits.
A strong drive to change and build, a passion for what they do and a bigger-than-life purpose. They want to get acquainted with the nitty and the gritty of the locations they visit, and they are not afraid of getting their hands dirty. They look for the real connections that people achieve when they live off-grid.
By joining the Tribe, members receive a 20% discount on all trips to Tribewanted locations, get the chance to connect to like-minded members around the world, and support community projects at each location through their subscription fee.
"Its kind of like The Beach, but with a better track record." The Guardian
10 years of tribe-building, community & adventure.
On Vorovoro Island it was foretold that one day 'the world would come' and in 2006 an email connected the small Fijian community with an online 'tribe' of travellers and a new project and adventure began.
Since then, on Vorovoro, a beach in Sierra Leone, in the Umbrian hills, and now in Bali we have been working in partnership with communities and welcomed over 2500 visiting tribe-members, students, families and curious travellers.
We’ve generated over $3m in revenues and invested into the local projects and supported over 100 jobs.
