Dome Projects Lombok is a company creating and selling sustainable concepts within house construction, water management and food production. Both to indvidual investors as well as to bigger projects. The project will promote respectful interaction and co-operation with the local community as well as establish a good network with other eco-projects around the world.
Through the construction of Eco-domes, made mainly with compacted soil and lime stone, we are pushing boundaries in sustainable housing construction without neglecting quality and comfort. The building site is an innovative testing ground for implementing new techniques of creating and maintaining human accommodation.
Pristine coral coastlines, with their many natural treasures and majestic scenery, make Lombok a popular destination for diving, eco-tourism and surfing. The laidback ambiance and idyllic settings of the Gili Islands have always appealed to tourists, but now, the more remote destinations are being discovered by travelers from all over the world. And foreign companies and investors have discovered the potential of investing in more sustainable solutions enduring a strong and steady growth for Lombok’s tourism and economy.
The Dome Village resort is located on the south-eastern part of Lombok, strategically situated on a hilltop near the town of Gerupuk. It offers magnificent panoramic views over the Gerupuk mangrove delta as well as the stunning bay and dramatic coastlines. It is close to numerous surf breaks and diving sites, and is five minutes walking distance from the fabled Tanjung Aan Beach.
The 6.5-acre property is close to the local fishing village where you can enjoy small-town friendliness and traditional Sasak culture. It is also connected to the newly built road that provides a convenient 15-minute drive to Kuta Beach – the main tourist destination – and an approximately 30-minute drive to the international airport.
Relax in a unique and secluded oasis unlike any other…
Scheduled to open in August of 2017, Dome Village will represent eco living and barefoot luxury at its finest. We believe you will fall in love with the charming and spacious Domes and feel at home at our exclusive resort.
Dome Village weaves the convenience of a luxury resort with the privacy of your own home…
This lush, verdant oasis of 14 Domes boasts a large two-level infinity pool, farm-to-table-style restaurant, yoga facility, organic juice bar, outdoor cinema, spa and many other amenities. Service with an eco-friendly approach is our core objective and every need is met with a smile by the resorts’ efficient staff.
This dome place is an amazing idea! Why didn't I think of it myself?!
What is a dome, or also called super adobe structure?
A super adobe is a form of earth bag construction that was developed by the Iranian architect Nader Khalili. The technique uses layered long fabric tubes or bags filled with moist earth, limestone and gravel, to form a compression structure. The resulting beehive shaped structures employs corbeled arches, corbeled domes, and vaults to create single and double-curved shells that are earthquake/tsunami/fire proof and aesthetically pleasing. Through the construction of Eco-Domes we are pushing the boundaries in sustainable housing construction without neglecting quality and comfort. All the while, keeping our impact on the environment to a minimum. Working only with locally burned limestone and natural plasters, we make a form of old Moroccan Tadelakt finish that creates a flawless surface and waterproofs all of our buildings. The wood and bamboo that we use, for example, are treated in salt water against termites and prevents us from having to use pesticides or other harsh chemicals.
The road up until the launch of this crowdfunding campaign has been a long and winding one. And there are still a lot of challenges ahead of us. By now we have invested all of our savings and a huge amount of our time to make this dream come true.We are about to launch our Kickstarter campaign. Our aim is to gather enough donations to be able to build in solar panels and construct a water treatment facility along our plan to become an off the grid resort. Our goal is to get 50 000 € in funding for our final reforestation program, the realisation of a waste water filtration system and the construction of a solar energy storage system.
The secret of making a Dome more luxurious is to have the right coating and finish. That’s why we are only working with natural paint, plasters and decorative techniques. By adding pigments and working with different plastering techni-ques we can create flawless surfaces. Our trademark is a final coating that is based on the original Moroccan Tadelakt technique. The natural limestone plaster is polished and roughened with a stone to harden and waterproof it. The result is a top coating which is not only very sustainable, but also has sun reflecting properties that prevent unnecessary thermal heating. We have done extensive testing with the locally burned limestone and have found an unique mixture that we use for the water-proofing of all our buildings.
We believe we are at the frontier of sustainable design with the implementation and development of innovative and environmental friendly building techniques. To minimise our impact on the environment we have chosen to use only locally sourced or recycled building materials. Have a look at our sustainability page for further info about our sustainable approach.

The land has undergone a huge metamorphoses since we started implementing permaculture techniques to re-green the previous arid land. We are working with certified permaculture designers and are training and learning from the locals. The ultimate goal is to complete our reforestation program and become fully self sufficient in our energy needs and food production. We believe this holistic approach will become the new standard for any form of sustainable development, and we firmly stand by these core principals.
Permaculture is a branch of ecological design, ecological engineering, environmental design, construction and integrated water resources management that develops sustainable architecture, regenerative and self-maintained habitat and agricultural systems modelled from natural ecosystems. The term permaculture (as a systematic method) was first coined by Australians Bill Mollison and David Holmgren in 1978. The word permaculture originally referred to "permanent agriculture" but was expanded to stand also for "permanent culture," as it was seen that social aspects were integral to a truly sustainable system as inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka's natural farming philosophy.
We strive to be completely off the grid and self-sufficient. In order to do that, we have to use a range of new techniques and materials that have only recently been developed. One of our ambitious plans is to have an integrated dual water management system that filters and cleans waste water. The rain water catchment system is connected to a sophisticated network of bio-sand filters that pump the purified water to the water reservoirs up the hill. And the end goal is to have our own off-the-grid electricity. The resort will be completely solar powered and storage of the harvested energy is done by using the latest batteries and innovations in green technology.
This is a rare opportunity to invest in a growing eco project. We offer you the privilege of owning property on one of the last undiscovered pearls of the Indonesian archipelago by leasing out shares of the land and homes on our resort. Lombok has become a hot spot for foreign investors. The Indonesian governments sustainable development strategy is to designate this island into a new eco-region. Since neighbouring Bali has reached its investment peak, property and real estate prices in Lombok have been rising because of continuous growing demand. Investing in this still “undeveloped” region presents great opportunity and guarantees a high return on investment. By investing in our project you can help help us to realise this ambitious endeavour
We grew up in a society where faster, cheaper and more efficient was the trend. Surrounded by mass-produced products without soul or identity. Words like sustainability, organic and ECO have become more of a marketing slogan for big corporations than actual initiatives that create better goods, services and places.
We from Dome Projects Lombok possess the dedication, resources and knowledge to build a community with homes that help facilitate this basic human need to connect with each other, ourselves and nature.
Help us to build this beautiful and unique Eco-resort that is self-sufficient in the production of food, energy and water.
We remove the hassle of setting up your own legal ownership structure in a foreign country. Thanks to our close cooperation with ESL, Eco Region Indonesia and an international law firm, we can offer all the legal documentation and lease agreements in full compliance with the current Indonesian foreign land ownership laws.
Our HGB leasehold agreements will ensure you ownership for a period of 25 or 50 years, with the option of renewal up to 80 years, to be enjoyed by generations to come. Whether you are a group of friends who want to share a home in the best surf spot on the island, or a couple longing to have their own Dome for a relaxing and adventurous vacation, the Dome Resort can be that second home you desire!
We are proud to partner up with Pura Worka, who's mission it is to shape work towards an art of living by giving people access to ecosystem Services in beautiful co-working destinations around the world. Together with them, we are creating a perfect office in paradise!
PuraWorka and Dome Lombok are thrilled to launch the first coworking space in Lombok in the autumn of 2018!
After building through a heavy rainy season, we have learnt an important lesson about sustainability that we like to share with all like minded people out there who are also thinking about building the eco way. We are making a confession about how we’ve become more flexible towards using materials we thought we’d never use. Read more on our sustainability page "concrete confession".
We were just featured in the sustainable architecture and design magazine PPAPER!
