Those wanting a simple yet relaxing and caring place to stay, with daily yoga practice and conveniences just a few steps outside the ashram, this is the place to be! I couldn't have asked for a more soulful place to stay with friendly staff members of the ashram living out Gandhian principles, accessible acupuncture treatment 3 times a week and healthy local foods if you make prior arrangements. The sounds of the ocean to wake up to and if you're lucky to arrive during the full moon, you get just a stunning experience to soak yourself in moon glow and to awake to festive sounds, colours and beats where the temple just across from the ashram is at its climax in terms of activity! Come and support a living Balinese community keeping true to its tradition yet withstanding the test of (modern) times. With peace and love to all who will pass this route. OM SHANTI!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A fully functioning and not for profit Gandhian Ashram which opens all its 7 ocean-view and ocean-fronted accommodation bungalows to full paying guests to finance the bulk of its social oriented operations. It is set on THE premier and sacred site in Candidasa (if not Bali), on a finger of land flanked by the pounding ocean on one side, and the serene spring fed lagoon on the inland side which ends on a road separating it from the village's sacred temples which terraced down the steep and imposing 'Candidasa' hill at the rear. The Ashram is the center of a hive of community oriented activities from its nature cure acupuncture clinic, Gandhian kindergarten, four times a day puja with the members, sublime yoga through daily house yoga or periodic yoga retreat and workshops on its peerless, ocean front 'Bale Yoga' or yoga shala - all lovingly shared and serviced with wholesome vegetarian and fish meals by the Ashram/members, to its discerning guests. ... more less
