‘From the moment I stepped on to this property, I felt a clean, crisp energy. Without a thought, I noticed I was walking slower, breathing deeper, speaking more quietly. I felt my body relax and felt a huge wave of calm and peacefulness wash over me.

There was something magical in the air, and I knew I had to invite others to this land to connect more deeply with themselves, and to breathe, move and play with me.

This Breathwork immersion is designed to guide you in ‘traveling into you’, to turn inward and meet or connect more deeply with yourself and your inner child(ren) while supporting you in meeting their needs, to remember how to play and to work through any core limiting beliefs, conditioning or patterns that might be holding you back from being your most amazing self!’

Our Mountain Home

You will be staying in one of the most magical and unforgettable boutique resorts we have found in Bali. Surrounded by protected jungle, our home for the retreat is the ideal place to escape from modern living, reconnect with nature and breathe in the beautiful views of Bali and beyond.

Situated halfway up a dormant volcano, the property overlooks the valley of the UNESCO protected Jatiluwih rice fields. It is the perfect setting to turn inward, be embraced and nurtured by nature’s offerings, while being spoiled in cozy comforts. The resort is a home and comes with two sweet dogs, Chubby & Abu, and Lily, the ginger cat.

The Rooms

The comfortable rooms are built on the slopes of the mountain in a way that respects the natural terrain. Each room is a unique labor of love built by local craftsmen, using natural and recycled materials. The open and airy rooms invite you to live amongst the elements. With great attention to detail, the interior furnishings are lovingly adorned to ensure that you enjoy the best comfort while being in constant touch with nature.

The Food

The land surrounding the resort is bursting with wild grown tropical fruits and vegetables, harvested all year round. You will be served delicious, freshly made organic food straight to your plate, 3 times a day. Enjoy a free flow of the freshest mountain water, herbal tea and black coffee all through your time here. These home cooked meals, picked and prepared with love, are a special treat for our guests. 

We will take into consideration our guests dietary needs and can also prepare fish or poultry if requested.
