Tevana House Reef - Bira

Tevana House Reef started off as an sustainable lodge amongst family members for their love of the environment and scuba diving in Tanjung Bira. We wanted to create an sustainable resort where everyone can experience the gardens and incredible sea views of the Earth that has been naturally given to us by Mother Nature.

Tevana means Pleasurable Garden in Sanskrit and House Reef is a scuba diving term for the closest diveable area of coral reef which coincidently the Bira House Reef starts is just off our shores.

In Tevana House Reef we wanted to ensure that when guests came to Bira, they experienced a wholistic travel experience, from being close to the ocean, enjoying the raw beauty of Bira, the culinary experience and finally to live a simple life away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The project headquarters is located on the island of Nusa Penida in the Penida Marine Park. Penida is a diver, surfer, and yogi paradise only a 30-minute boat ride from southeast Bali and ideally located only 1 hour away from the Denpasar International Airport.

Reboot Our Reefs

We are a collaboration between REUZBL in the IS and Ocean Gardeners in Bali working together to expand Ocean Gardener’s reef restoration and education.

In our nursery and restoration site in Lipah Bay, we already have directly planted over a couple thousand corals. A lot of work has been done to clean the bay of Drupella, Acropora eating snails.

Some of the reef slope spiders, and gardening on the shallow boulders give a tremendous result. Really worth visiting now. Hundreds of divers enjoy our work now. 

We now have 9 racks, in the nursery. 4 of them are already producing frags, from 20 different species. A dozen spiders have been installed and seeded on the slope. Also over a couple thousand corals have been planted among the reef.

SeaTrees

As surfers, we love coral reefs. Not only do coral reefs produce some of the best waves on the planet, they also support a quarter of all ocean life. Boardriders athletes Caroline Marks and Rajo Barrel recently volunteered with SeaTrees and their team of Ocean Gardeners working to restore coral reefs and mangrove forest on the island of Nusa Penida, Bali, Indonesia. You can support SeaTrees’ efforts to protect these critical ocean ecosystems right now.
