A Hidden Gem
Located in Nyuh Kuning, our chosen venue is in a small, beautiful and quiet woodcarving village adjacent to the cultural heart of Bali, Ubud which has many shops, restaurants and arts and crafts. Traditional culture and clothing still abound here so you will truly feel transported to another world.
Imagine spending this profound time together nestled in this beautiful Balinese retreat center, exploring Balinese culture, dining on organic freshly grown and prepared food. Allowing our bodies to detoxify in this organic, chemical-free environment, releasing toxins and stress through dance, sweat, massage, and rest, and replenishing with pure young coconut water sipped from the coconut and freshly prepared organic juices and smoothies.
Accommodations to Delight You

Watch tropical birds play in your garden. Sleep under a canopy. Shower privately in fresh air.
