An authentic Balinese wellness retreat close to Ubud town.
Nestled on land near Ubud believed to be sacred, this authentic wellness resort has been beautifully designed to blend into the lush forest. It feels peaceful but is just ten minutes’ walk away from cultural Ubud. Cycle through the region’s famous paddy fields and bask in the melodic serenity of birdlife and cicadas. Capturing understated Balinese style in its calming open spaces and rooms, this authentic retreat aims to nurture, heal and guide you towards making positive lifestyle changes.
There’s plenty to encourage you to relax and reflect like yoga classes at sunrise. Choose from traditional Balinese and holistic spa treatments – all of which are highly personalised to fulfil your individual wellness goals and take place in open-air pavilions. There’s a choice of therapies including chakra balancing, reiki and life coaching, and there’s even a martial arts temple for more invigorating exercise and specialised programmes to reconnect couples. Food is designed to enhance health and increase energy with personalised detox meals also offered. The Banyan Café has a tranquil setting underneath an enormous Banyan Tree and serves nutritious plant and fish-based cuisine. Try out different jamu, the Balinese health tonic made from blends of herbs and spices like turmeric that’s said to work wonders for a number of conditions.
