In 2018, When Mr. Nyoman SudiArtawan went to Belimbing for trekking, he passed several houses, one of  them owned by I KetutNesa, he was an oldman who lived with his daughter whose husband had passed away, her name is Made Wiani and she has two son, aged 17 and 14 at the time. His two grandchildren are named I Wayan Adi Juliantara and KadekNopadiantara. At that time the condition of their house where he lived was very poor  (leaked when it rained). Even though they had been proposed to get a house renovation program from the government, it never came.

By having a sense of care and love for others, Mr. Nyoman SudiArtawan provided financial assistance to build a house. As an expression of gratitude, Mr. Nyoman Sudi was given land to be contracted for 25 years by KetutNesa. Therefore, Mr. Sudi used the land to build a tourist lodge with an environmentally friendly building concept with the main aim of helping the economy of the I KetutNesa's family, the surrounding community and in order to help government programs, especially Belimbing Village as a tourist village.
