We stayed here for 3 nights during our honeymoon, there is no words to describe how perfect it was. We stayed in a suite with 2 private terrasses with direct access to the pool and one private jacuzzi. The room was beautiful, spacious and decorated with great taste. The view was breathtaking and all places in the hotel (spring pool,...

It is treuly the most beautifull place I have ever stayed. Just a lot of kliming steps ;-) Very quiet and tranquil place. Huge piece of land with only 30 rooms, you hardly see any other visitors. The staff is just beyond expectations. Never imagioned that staff can be so exellent.

Situated in the local town near Ubud with a taste of the charm of the local village. Surrounded in the middle of the tropical forest which is a natural beauty. I was super well taken care by my personal assistant Mika 360 degree!!

Super kind staff, best a la carte breakfast I ever tried and being embraced by nature in a very private environment made my stay unforgettable. Not to mention the most genuine meditation class we had the chance to experience with Dr. D and some other nice yoga classes in a very special yoga shala. The walk to the water spring...

I stayed here with my oldest dearest friend. I had no expectations and was blown away by the service, beauty of the grounds and rooms, food, and the unexpected spiritual awakening I experienced. I never felt comfortable with meditation util working with Dr. D who was a guest professional that lead meditation.

The staff on-site were very hospitable. However, I felt a slight lack of coordination between the wellness dept., with the restaurant staff. We were on a special diet, but were given the wrong menus a couple of times. For such a luxurious resort, these hiccups albeit small should be avoided.. I also wish that we had been told that we...

My favourite place in Bali. Secret waterfalls, seclusion, health focus and classy style. This place is the ultimate in authentic Balinese luxury in a jaw dropping location. Take the walk around the property to the river and it's like being in the garden of Eden. Bali can be so busy and polluted these days like many places in Asia however...
