Early in 2005 we spent 2 months touring Bali looking for places to stay by the ocean; we found many beautiful hotels and retreats but mostly they were out of our budget.
We were looking for a clean place, a simple place, with a sea view, large terrace, air conditioning, hot water, chemical free pool, delicious food at reasonable prices and friendly staff. It was too much to ask for on our budget, and so... an idea started to take shape.
We had intended to have a break for a year and then return to New Zealand to open our healing retreat centre - the one we had imagined - but there are no coincidences or accidents and we found our retreat centre right here in Bali. Not where we expected it to be, and not away from it all.
You will find us on the water’s edge in the heart of Candi Dasa, East Bali. We invite you to venture down our cool, palm tree lined driveway towards the sea and discover our boutique retreat.
Simple styling, villa atmosphere, environmentally conscious, fresh and different.
Our staff are multi-tasking and have been trained to be quiet and discreet. They are always pleased and ready to help when you need them.
We are both trained in AQUARIAN HEALING, a new vibrational healing modality developed in New Zealand to promote wellness through Body/mind communication.
Our background is traditionally grounded in building, design and architecture and we spent many years developing and running businesses in New Zealand.
Our mission is to create a place in balance and harmony where our guests can be at peace and rest for just a while – take a breather from the busy world outside. A place where you can go within into your own space at your own pace.
May all who enter our sanctuary find their own sense of peace.
