At the start of your Rejuvenation programme at Sukhavati, you will receive a detailed consultation with our Ayurvedic Doctor who will confirm the influences of the doshas (Vata, Pitta, Kapha) on your physical, mental and emotional health to help determine the Ayurvedic treatments that will be scheduled for you.

The team will create a personally designed treatment programme (Panchakarma programme) to rejuvenate the whole system, detoxify the body and relax the mind. Recommendations are unique to each individual and are validated by observation and deep knowledge derived from the ancient Vedic texts to ensure a long and healthy life.

  1. 10 days and I felt like newborn

    Frankly, when I arrived at the Sukhavati, I wasn't really sure what to expect. I came there feeling burnt out from work and was hoping for deep relaxation. The first two days I had terrible headaches, a result of not drinking coffee anymore. I felt tired as my body started to release the toxins. But then, after 3 days something happened. I stopped drinking coffee and never felt more energetic than ever before... The tiredness was completely gone. I use to sleep 9-10 hours a night, but now it seemed my body needed much less sleep. I started to wake up naturally at 5 to 6 AM, feeling rested and energetic. It was quite a miracle as usually I couldn't do anything before I had a cup of coffee. My favorite thing were the massages. Every day I received synchronized massages by two gentle massage therapists. The spa staff was extremely skilled, caring and kind. All of the Ayurvedic treatments that I received were amazing, it was pure bliss. After 10 days I felt fantastic, nurtured and energetic! All the stress and tensions were gone. This was not just a spa vacation, my stay at the Sukhavati Bali was truly a holistic experience that put me in the most peaceful state of mind. Highly recommended to everyone who needs an escape from the daily routine, this place is like a little oasis! It's not the most budget-friendly experience, but how important is your health to you? For all what its cost, it's totally worth it. It will heal you and improve your health. My stay at the Sukhavati was a deep, life-changing and a transformational experience I surely won't forget... PS: I totally forgot to mention the rooms. They have only a handful villas, each of them is unique and stunningly beautiful in its own way. If you can afford it, take one with a private pool, you will love them.

  1. Relax, Meditate, Heal in an Amazing Location with Wonderful Staff

    Sukhavati is nestled in the hills of Mengwi. Beautiful location and wonderful accommodation. Can select your own pool and be totally in paradise - very luxurious. Personally tailored wholistic health program, food and spa treatments. Yoga, walking, meditation and some additional exercise with the steps make for additional health and wellbeing. Am refreshed and sparkling and ready for anything.

  1. Sublime Sukhavati

    I am eternally grateful for the opportunity to stay at Sukhavati. It offers a beautiful, nurturing, profoundly healing experience. Nestled within an amazing life giving natural green jungle setting, you can almost feel the softness and oxygen in the air. The service was faultless, so warm and caring and professional. I couldn't recommend Sukhavati more highly. I just need to find a way to return every year!

  1. Pure Bliss

    I hate recommending this place so highly as I may not be able to get a booking. If you go you will definitely go back again and yes again.The staff excel, just can't do enough for you and the surrounds you feel like you are in the garden of Eden. Can't wait to go back in 6 months.

  1. Best days to relax and rejuvenate

    Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat and Spa is a place to heal your body and rejuvenate. A place to be for all Yoga Lovers and Spa Lovers. Especially the highly professional and lovely staff are the most beautiful and caring souls. We were really blown away by their warmth and attentiveness to our every need. We would definitely come again!

  1. Looking forward to my 4th visit

    After three 10 day visits I still can't decide on what I enjoy most; the serenity of the surrounds, the care and attention to detail from all the staff, especially the ayurveda technicians, or the nourishing food and drinks. All this, in addition to yoga and meditation makes Sukhavati and the complete PK experience so special.

  1. World Class Facility - World Class Service!

    This was my second trip and my partners first trip to beautiful Sukhavati, one of Bali's best kept secrets for health rejuvenation. There's nothing like enjoying fresh juices, superb dosha balanced food, synchronised massage, yoga, facials, casual village walks through rice fields, oil treatments and meditation in some of the best surroundings on the planet! Oh and the service from the beautiful respectful and always friendly staff is second to none. If you only ever do one health retreat in your life, make it this one!

  1. Sukhavati - My Special Place for Healing

    I first went to Sukhavati a year ago, after I had been through a big upheaval in my life that had lasted many months and I was left feeling generally burnt out and exhausted every day. Sukhavati was such a nurturing experience that left me feeling rested and ready to go back to my every day life firing on all pistons again. I have since been back to Sukhavati another two times in the past year for a 4 day long weekend, when I have felt the hum drum of life getting on top of me again. The spa treatments are out of this world, the food is wonderful, the yoga instructors are very good, the villas and the grounds are so tranquil and relaxing and each time I visit I have the pleasure of meeting some new and fascinating people. I truly believe that Sukhavati has removed and continues to remove deep rooted stresses from my body that has left me in a better overall state of equilibrium and health.

  1. Life Changing experience

    My Wife and I spent 7 wonderful days here over New Year. I didn't know exactly what was involved but I knew I would embrace whatever was going to happen. I met with Geoff, one of the owners who described it as a 'total mind and body reset' which was a perfect description. I always thought I eat fairly healthy but Dr Raju took my understanding to a whole different level. I can not express in this short review how great this place is. Go and embrace it all, you will improve your health and mind, improve your knowledge and the person you arrive as, will not be the same person that leaves.

  1. A truly amazing experience

    From the moment I arrived at Sukhavati I knew something special was awaiting me. My 6 days at this beautiful retreat made me feel like part of the family and I've hopefully made some long lasting friendships. With the intent of distressing and taking some time to reflect on life, Sukhavati provided me with the perfect oasis. From my beautiful villa to the stunning gardens surrounds I was captivated and instantly relaxed. The extensive knowledge and education provided by Dr Ragut and the team guided me through the process of getting back to a healthier and better approach to life both physically and mentally. I can't speak highly enough about the vegetarian food, the tailored treatments which were the best I've experienced after visiting many retreats globally. I thoroughly enjoyed my yoga lessons with the family, walking through the local village and getting to know everyone who was staying at Sukhavati. I left with a heavy heart and wished I could have stayed longer. Now I'm armed with a new approach to work and leading a more balanced day to day life. A few days later feeling super relaxed and with a very clear mind. I can't wait to return.

  1. Can there be a better place in this world to get to know yourself?

    I suppose that waxing lyrical on any successful holiday destination is to be expected, especially after having just returned. But Sukhavati is more than a holiday destination. We all go there for our own personal reasons: Be it a medical problem that needs correcting or regulating or be it an emotional or spiritual one. Be it to perfect the art of yoga or be it to advance in transcendental meditation Sukhavati seems to have the right answer. From the owner Steve, to the doctors, to the staff, to the other guests - right down to the little touches via the treatments, the yoga, the attitude, the peace and the love that is so all consuming at Sukhavati. It is luxurious. It is indulgent. You are special. You matter. You are worth it. You are made to feel as if you belong. You are sent home with a sense of purpose and a determination to live your life in a different way. And it is not hard to follow once back to the daily grind. It is, in my mind and surely in the minds of countless others, unsurpassable.

  1. Paradise on earth

    From the moment I booked this retreat through to returning home; this was a five star experience. I booked to attend an Intuitive Wellness retreat there, however I did travel solo. This retreat isn't near any markets or shops, it's away from the madness. I was greeted at the airport by one of the Sukhavati staff members who drove myself and another guest to the retreat. As the car rolled through the front gates of the property, any stress I was carrying just melted away. Waiting for the car to arrival were the amazing staff, handed a welcome drink, adorned a flower necklace, and a wooden necklace and was whisked off to the foyer to drink my welcome drink. After I was shown around and guided to my stunning private pool villa, my bag already placed in my room. Days followed with sensational food (I hadn't had Ayurvedic food previously and its really good), incredible and multiple spa treatments, fun yoga sessions and truly deep rest and rejuvenation. I cannot rate this experience higher, it was simply one of the best holidays I've ever had and I'll definitely be going back!

  1. Human factory reset

    Me and my wife loved every moment of this paradise! The staff and service is awesome, felt like we knew each other like friends by the time we where leaving. The place is gorgeous, rooms are really great and the ayurvedic concept - treatments and food is fantastic! All the yoga teachers are very attentive and passionate about teaching. Only problem we couldn't stay for more than 5 days. Will definitely come back for more!

  1. Stunning surrounds and amazing experience

    This is an amazing and special place in Bali, one I would highly recommend. Prior to arriving at the property I was met at the airport gate by a staff member and then driven to the property. Upon arrival I was greeted by the friendly staff. The setting was out of this world amazing. Given a brief tour prior to dinner with the other guests. Away from the hustle of the main 'tourist' area's of bali, however you can request a driver take you into town for a few hours. The wellness program was more than expected and definitely needed due to the busy lifestyle I have. Staying ten days allowed me to take a moment out and feel recovered, both mentally and physically. The daily massages were a treat! I would highly recommend this place for those needed a break and wanting time out. Request a poolside villa - you'll have your own private pool!

  1. Pure Nirwana

    My trip to Sukhavati was undoubtedly the most enjoyable, most relaxing, and most amazing holiday experience that I have ever had. The staff there were so warm and so friendly. The facilities made me wonder if I had walked into the garden of Eden. The massage rooms are in huts, those huts rest on top of a river and look out onto the lush green jungle. Sitting there, getting a foot massage - listening to the river flowing beneath me, and looking out onto the sun hitting the trees and plants was truly majestic. I would and will go back to Sukhavati as often as I can, thanks for having us. Stay for as long as you possibly can :)

  1. Return to tranquility

    I decided to return to Sukharvati for a second time earlier this year after feeling drained and worn out from a very busy year. I opted for 10 days, last time was 7. To see the beautiful staff and experience their nurturing again, along with returning to meditation and yoga practise sent me home with a renewed sense of balance and health.

  1. First Class Ayurveda Program

    Recently completed a 3 week Ayurveda program, and it was excellent. The amazing service from the staff, the food was so well prepared, first class villa accommodations, twice daily hatha yoga, the daily ayurveda massages were so theraputic, truly bliss facials and daily followups from the resident doctor. Can't give enough compliments for the program or to the staff. It seemed most guests stayed about 10 days. If you can plan for 3 weeks, that is ideal to receive the full benefit of the Panchakarma program. I am sure glad I did.

  1. Multi-layered life experience

    My teenage daughter and I spent 10 blissful days at Sukahavti which I believe will have an impact on her life (and mine) forever - she experienced many 'life' lessons simply by being there; concepts about healthy eating, exercise, benefits of relaxation/quiet time, natures' cycles, diversity of people (staff, local villagers, other guests), the importance of community, family and being happy; lessons that don't have the same impact coming from a parent. The multi-layered effect of exotic location, beautiful accommodation, engaged, caring and skilful staff provided the perfect foundation for complete rejuvenation, healing and relaxation. The treatments were unique and targeted specific medical needs as well as providing a 'blissful' after effect. Yoga, mediation, ayurvedic talks and cooking classes all added to a well rounded program which refocused our thoughts and reminded us of the value and simplicity of keeping healthy My daughter will miss her Balinese friends who cared for her, fed her and taught her so many wonderful new things.

  1. A beautiful place for a detox

    Sukhavati is sensational. My sister and I had 10 days there recently in a divine villa with our own pool and a large garden area all enclosed for total privacy. Breakfast of your choice from an extensive menu is either bought to you, or you can enjoy it with other guests in a lovely dining room by the river. We choose to have it around our own pool most mornings, sometimes we also had lunch in the villa, mostly dinners were shared with other guests at the large communal table. After massages and treatments each day, early morning walks, daily Ayurvedic doctor consultations, yoga, meditation (all options and all included in the price - nothing compulsory at all), facials etc it was lovely to join the table at night with some very interesting guests... there was never a dull moment at the dinner table! The staff are outstanding - so well trained with genuine smiles.The owners of this resort can be very proud of what they have accomplished - TOP MARKS. I came back to Australia 4 kgs lighter, refreshed and felling ready to tackle the world again. I will return. Go for a pool villa... a little extra but well worth it for the privacy.

  1. Serious about your health then this is the place for you

    I must admit at first I wasn't entirely sure what to expect. This was my first experience of both Bali and the Ayurvedic approach to health and it was wonderful in every way. First and foremost the staff at the resort were amazing, from the minute I was guided through immigration at the airport and met by the driver, to the day I left, they were focused on me and my needs without being intrusive. They were sensitive, and caring and I felt nurtured and looked after every step of the way. The facilities were great, clean, comfortable and again with a focus on details that really enhanced the experience. This is not like many spa resorts, here the treatments are tailored to you specifically. They help you rejuvenate and heal in the best possible way for you. Healthy food, gentle yoga, focused meditation, all interwoven to eliminate stress at a deep level. I had 11 days and will certainly return. Also recognise that your trip and commitment is to your health so don't try and do too much in terms of sight seeing - but if you do want to venture out a little, the resort drivers are great and are very happy to share their local knowledge.

  1. Sukhavati is rejuvenation, relaxation and peace all in one

    The Sukhavati program is the best of its kind in South East Asia. For Westerners, it finds just the right balance between the disciplines of Ayurveda and the comforts you would expect at a high-end Spa resort. The setting is filled with the spirit of life and when complemented by outstanding, nourishing food, Ayurvedic wisdom and caring, professional people anyone looking to live, love and be happy could not fail to be refreshed by Sukhavati. The combination of a beautiful environment, daily massages, meditation and yoga, matched with the care, attention and loving approach demonstrated by everyone at Sukhavati supported our rejuvenation to great health. Thank-you team!

  1. 58 steps to heaven!

    My husband & I were gob smacked when we arrived at Sukhavati, the beauty and tranquility of this retreat had us instantly mesmorised. A complete Ayurvedic experience from daily full body massages/facials, panchakarma health assessments, individual treatments and dietry program (the food is delicious!) along with morning and evening yoga and meditation guided sessions. Staff were divine and accommodation like a honeymoon. We were cleansed and rejuvenated in the body, mind and consciousness and came away feeling A-mazing! Finally, a detox program that truly delivers. We will go back, that is for sure.
