We brought a group of yoga students to Jiwa Damai and we stayed for 3 weeks. Our experience was pleasant and responded to our needs and desire to be in an eco-hotel. It is very interesting to see what all the work that is being done in the gardens to make the site as sustainable as possible. Rooms were clean, towel and sheet change when needed, keeping in mind to be environmentally conscious. Meals were traditional balinese and vegetarian for our group. The volunteers were very respectful and Margret was a great host.
We recommend the location to other groups although we would suggest making the stays shorter if the programs are intensive. Being right outside Ubud, Jiwa is also a quiet location.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Jiwa Damai is a hands-on, socially responsible organic garden and retreat center. We are located amidst lush tropical vegetation in the heart of Bali. We provide a sanctuary in an idyllic, powerful environment where guests can experience tranquility and re-connect to the life-giving qualities of the earth. It is a meeting place for people from all over the world to find and initiate peace; to learn from each other and the land. Beautifully decorated guest rooms, a spacious lounge and dining area, a fresh water pool, several ponds and a large permaculture garden all situated within an abundant tropical vegetation make Jiwa Damai a perfect retreat place to relax in alignment with nature, learn about permaculture principles and find time for reflection and contemplation. ... more less
