How would you feel staying in 200 year old homes imported from Bali perched on a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean?
Or in Geodesic Domes deep in the jungle? Or in a "Jungalow" with open air bathtubs?
All of them are based on the same principle; eco-conscious luxury to help you immerse into total wellbeing, liberating the million and one thoughts in your mind.
You will be able to choose from three beautiful Balinese homes on this 12,000 square foot property, overlooking thousands of acres and the South Pacific coast. All three homes boast hand-carved architecture imported from Indonesia and are equipped with kitchen and soak tub. They share the infinity pool.
Or go minimal in one of the six "Jungle Bungalows" built on the side of the mountain with private jungle deck boasting comfortable couches where you can relax just steps away from the retreat's private waterfall.
And last but not least, the Sacred Geodesic River Domes are an experience by themselves.
With their 180-degree jungle views boasting sacred geometry in design they are also partially solar powered. With this safe and comfortable jungle experience on 480 square feet of living space and the sound of nature filtering in, you'll have the chance to experience nature in very close and truthful relation with your soul and mind.
The House of Masters, a 200m2 Balinese super structure hanging 100 feet in the jungle is the place where some of the mind healing activities will take place.
· The morning "Yin Yoga" sessions will gently stretch your body and release tense muscles from hours of sitting behind a laptop or just having a bad posture due to stressful overthinking with shoulders forward.
All these muscles need to be carefully stretched and brought back to their initial position and length. By holding the yoga poses for 3-5 minutes each your body will slowly let go and you will feel the transformation right after the session. Your mind will be calm, your body will feel light.
We recommend to just sit still after the session and admire the view with a tranquil mind. Drink some water, tea or juice to replenish and avoid talking for at least an hour to fully get the benefits of the session.
· The "Whole Person Healing" sessions are a powerful sound and vibration from Tibetan Singing Bowls helping to clear energy blocks, rebalance chakras, and flush meridians. For thousand, of years, cultures around the world have used vibrational medicine to treat illness, revitalize the body and elevate spirit and mind.
You will receive a comprehensive guide and manual to help you understand all seven chakras/energy centers, and thereby enable you to release some of the blockages in the body that influence mind, body and behaviors.
· "The Guided Sunset Meditation" with the natural frequency and healing sound found at 432Hz.
A guided meditation is an excellent method for removing clutter from your mind and achieving greater clarity in order to recognize the things that are truly important in your life.
This type of meditation also promotes deep relaxation, even for beginners, enhancing emotional and mental well-being, reducing anxiety and depression, which in turn can aid in lowering blood pressure, enhancing your ability to cultivate deep awareness and inner peace and mindfulness.
· "The meditative Nature Jungle Walks" lead you on paths connected to the 20+acres at the retreat on hand-made stairs listening to the sound of nature as the only sound. These walks are silent walks to let your mind immerse totally into nature with the aim to recognize the wonder of the creation of life by the universe and what it holds in for you.
·"The Shamanic Massage" is performed by a masseuse from the indigenous Boruca tribe.
15 different herbs are mixed in a hot pot that you will inhale while you lie enjoying your relaxation massage for better clarity of thought and releasing negative energies.
· SHIRODHARA - A unique and profound Ayurvedic treatment of 75 minutes that especially acts to heal and address the psychological and spiritual aspects of a person.
Shirodhara involves the practitioner pouring a stream of warm, medicated oil over the third eye centre and forehead.
It is this steady, rhythmic pouring of oil that induces a deeply relaxing and blissful state of consciousness called ‘Turiya’ ~ the state of awareness that is neither fully conscious nor deep sleep. While in this Turiya state, we are able to witness and/or release impressions in our conscious and subconscious mind and help balance the fundamental endocrine glands (pituitary, pineal & hypothalamus), which regulate all hormonal secretions.

At 31, Chef Pedro was diagnosed with a brain tumor and began healing it with Ayurvedic and plant-based nutrition – the same food he serves to his guests today. His story of overcoming disease and living a life contributing to the wellbeing of humans inspired us deeply.
Adopting Ayurvedic principles that work with each body's innate intelligence in order to promote natural self-healing is at the center of the recipes. Herbs and other supplements, diet, stress management, sleep and letting go of the mind's hold on you is the key to a healthy and happy life.
Chef Pedro's passion to share his healing gifts with the world through the dishes coming out of his kitchen reminds us that mastering the creation of delicious and light meals leaving us full and satisfied is a real blessing!
Sage is burned in the kitchen between meals, blessings and prayers made over dishes as they are prepared as the kitchen team express how grateful they feel being part of this magic.
The passion for spectacular and nutritious food is why the resort includes a full-service vegan cafe that serves three meals daily. Along with healthy snack options, we offer conscious smoothie bowls, including fresh tropical fruit, and jungle superfoods.
Asian-inspired flavors include dishes such as plant-based pad thai, mango ginger salads, jackfruit tacos, summer rolls, and a delicious array of avocado & plantain sushi. These gourmet vegan meals are so incredible, guests often forget that they’re not eating meat.
The inner vibrations of each cell with healing food gives your digestive system a restful paradise as your vital energy begins to grow through eating light, green and alkaline food. You got only one chance to live... Here is a chance to live a plentiful life with gratitude by nourishing your body and mind with the right choices.
