Unplug and unwind from the hustle and bustle of city life with Origame’s first play retreat in collaboration with Sukasantai Farmstay - a cosy mountain retreat nestled in the middle of an organic farm, located at Gunung Gede, West Java, Indonesia.

 

During this 5 day 4 night retreat, choose from a wide range of activities during the day such as a  bamboo forest trek, picking and brewing your very own herbal tea, petting baby farm animals, firefly-watching, and more.

 

Retire to an evening of fun and food, with an experienced gamemaster from Origame guiding you through a tasteful selection of modern Asian board games tailored to the dynamics and preferences of everyone.

 

All meals are included in this package, featuring healthy and fresh farm-to-table Indonesian meals, with organic produce grown and harvested on site.

We encourage everyone to set aside their digital devices and give themselves permission to go about slowly and mindfully.
