If you yearn to free your mind from the clutter of everyday demands and stresses; reboot your energy and find inner peace, this programme offers a wide range of well-established holistic practices that yield proven results.
Individuals are guided by a team of wellbeing professionals who help mind, body and soul to work in harmony. In a world that prizes digital and virtual communication over our innate need for spiritual meaning and physical touch, this programme addresses the challenges posed by modern-day living, by devising workable and durable solutions for a healthier and more balanced philosophy of life.
What makes Shambali Retreat magical - aside from its temple-like structure - is its unspoilt natural setting, nestled along the banks of the River Campuhan, near the pretty town of Ubud.
Once reigned over by the King of Ubud, the location was once a heavenly enclave for the Hindu Gods who revered its powerfully healing energetic forces and tropical climes. Today, lush vegetation and an intact ecosystem mean that the resort is a veritable paradise for weary souls on a quest for solace, transformation and a deep connection to Mother Nature.
The rooms are located at the top of the resort with twin or double beds available.
Fresh-water pools fashioned into the forest scene, and encircled by elegant, local wooden decking, make for an enchanting sight when illuminated at night. The outdoor and indoor activity spaces for holistic workshops and sessions offer sanctuary within the heart of the tropical setting, while the Spa provides authentic open-air Balinese treatments from three riverside pavilions, a riverside platform for Infra-Red saunas and river rock bathtubs.
Organic, seasonal, local and nutritionally dense ingredients are the foundation for vitality, longevity and good health. The Holistic Raw Food Chef and his team prepare a unique menu of vegan, vegetarian, Ayurvedic and raw dishes that leave guests feeling lighter, brighter and thoroughly detoxed. The programme is rooted in holistic food preparation and celebrates ingredients considered to be nature’s very own medicine.
We love the intimate nature of this 20-person group retreat.
The pace of the experience suits every type of guests and allows for all manner of approaches to the programme. We commend the cultural angle to the retreat’s programme, namely the rice terrace walks; the dance and music workshops, and the campfire vigil, which bring together locals and guests in an authentic, Balinese experience. We recommend the sessions on self-hypnosis – a vital continuity tool once you’ve arrived home.
