      My entire experience at Sukhavati was incredible from the moment I arrived. The estate is beautiful- pictures truly do not do it justice. The staff members were all incredibly kind and accommodating. The food was wonderfully diverse, expertly prepared, and always fresh. The yoga classes and treatments were all wonderful, it was without a doubt the most relaxing and restorative week I have ever spent. I would go back again without hesitation!

      Would highly recommend staying at Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat. It was an amazing experience. From the time we arrived until the day we left the staff were wonderful. I have no experienced such amazing spa treatments.

      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.

      Having had an excellent 8 day retreat last year in July was eager to return to try their sampler day to give my husband a taste of the gift he had given me .

      The staff collect you from your hotel and start with a welcome drink. Then shown to your villa for the day. Shortly after massages are given in the villas opposite the tranquil rainforest. The massages are done buy two people in unison which is sheer bliss. They are so gentle yet firm and it is

      Performed with such heart.

      Once the massage was finished time to relax around the pool & take in a swim. So refreshing followed by a coconut drink.

      Vegetarian lunch served in main dining room where you can meet guests from all over the world but Aussies frequent this resort.

      The afternoon a little leisure time or a consult with the on sight ayervedic Doctor to evaluate any health issues. If staying for a wk these issues are generally resolved or shifted to a better result with the yoga as well

      Later we had a facial & pedicure in the villa. Awesome . Refreshments then transport home .Loved it a real treat at a reasonable price.

      Give yourself some love and book it.

      You will not be disappointed.

      This is a real luxury rest , peace and quiet

      It is very rejuvenating.

      Thanks it was lovely to see familiar faces and return to this place of serenity. Rose

      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, synchronized 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!

      I leave feeling rested, relaxed, smiling, healthy and at peace. Both my mind and body have gone on a journey this week. I will be back!

      The care taken and the skill of the staff are just wonderful. I came to the resort tired and worn out and I leave a week later feeling 300% better. The daily treatments meant that I actually could do yoga twice a day plus walk and swim, even though the exercise stretched me.

      My wife and I spent seven 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.

      I stayed at Sukhavati for nine days over New Year. While I didn't quite know what to expect, the whole experience was just total bliss from the beginning straight to the end. Being amongst recurring other guests who have been doing Panchakarma all over the world for more than 20 years, I felt in good hands straight away. Every single person there was warm and welcoming, that alone felt nourishing. Then Dr. Raju did his miracle work. All these wonderful treatments were taken with extra care, attention, and dedication, allowing space for individual needs. Days filled with massages, special treatments, meditation, yoga, walks, talks, and wonderful meals soon resulted in decelerating and unwinding. My body as well as my mind started to let go of tensions which let to a calm and peaceful state. Thank you Steve, for your coaching on meditation, it came to me just at the right time. Thanks for and to your place and beautiful staff, I feel detoxed, nourished, full of strength, content, and confident in my life. Who would have thought nine days could make such a difference?

      Excellent Ayurvedic treatments and doctor. Large villas, beautifully maintained as were the lush tropical gardens. I had my own villa, garden, and pool. As good as any Ayurvedic Panchakarma I have had in India - but way more luxurious.

      I ambled over to Sukhavati from the beautiful Villa MAWAR next door to see renowned Dr RAJU, the resident Ayervedic physician at Sukhavati. He was incredible! Took my 'pulse' for ten minutes and described correctly in detail all my ailments, one of which was snoring. He said "I can fix that" and prescribed a little specially medicated GHEE every morning before breakfast. Within 24 hours my snoring reduced, and within 48 hours...gone completely! Extraordinary! Now he's working on my arthritis and other problems. After a week's detox at Sukhavati I feel absolutely amazing. Couldn't recommend either Sukhavati or Dr Raju more highly!

      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!

      Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat and Spa's services are very personalized with the supervision of an insight Doctor Raju who is very sweet and open to listening to any concerns so your stay can be one of rejuvenation and relaxation. The staff service is humble and exemplary. Tegan Wallis is an inspirational yoga teacher, health educator, and now lifetime friend. The Griffith group who owns Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat and Spa has provided a very special haven to truly unwind and retreat from the busy craziness of the world. An absolute treasure. The food is prepared with so much care and love from the Balinese staff. The traditional treatments are provided every day, massages are given to make sure the movements so as both sides of the body can be attended at the same time - sublime so totally recommend it . Enjoy.

      My wife and I loved every moment of this paradise!

      The staff and service are awesome, felt like we knew each other like friends by the time we were leaving. The place is gorgeous, rooms are really great, and the Ayurvedic concept treatments and food are fantastic!

      All the yoga teachers are very attentive and passionate about teaching.

      Only problem we couldn't stay for more than five days. Will definitely come back for more!

      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.

      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 was already placed in my room. Days followed with sensational food (I hadn't had Ayurvedic food previously and it was 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!

      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 :).

      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. Although away from the hustle of the main tourist area's of Bali, 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.

      I decided to return to Sukhavati 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 seven. To see the beautiful staff and experience their nurturing again, along with returning to meditation and yoga practice sent me home with a renewed sense of balance and health.

      I recently completed a three-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 therapeutic, truly bliss facials, and daily follow-ups 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 three weeks, that is ideal to receive the full benefit of the Panchakarma program. I am sure glad I did.

    • Tomson Australia

      I was fortunate enough to stay at Sukhavati in the week leading up to Christmas. Over the seven days, I was thoroughly spoilt, in not only having amazing spa treatments each day but also the daily facial and foot massages. An endless supply of teas and juices were a treat! The choice of two yoga sessions a day are cognizant of your level of experience. The only downside to me was the time of year we were there; we were inundated with flying bugs which loved the lights making it impossible to sit outside at night, and geckos the size of lizards. Made for some very noisy sleep. Would I go back? Yes, but maybe in another season.

    • Claire D. Australia

      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 or quiet time, natures' cycles, diversity of people (staff, local villagers, and 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 skillful 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, meditation, 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.

      The whole experience at Sukhavati was awesome, from the luxurious private villas, magnificent gardens and pools, amazingly talented panchakarma (PK) technicians, and the most wonderful food I have ever experienced. The staffs are all very gentle and caring and nothing is too much trouble. I have experienced PK in many places, but this is certainly by far the best experience I have ever had. The daily routine of a walk, yoga, meditation, breakfast by the pool, massages, foot massages, lunch, facial, bike riding, meditation, yoga, dinner, and then bed left me invigorated and re-inspired. I thoroughly recommend this wonderful retreat.

      This is a truly great small resort that merges gorgeous architecture with the natural environment. The service and smiles from the staff came from the heart. We would certainly come to Sukhavati again and we will also highly recommend the place to our friends.

      The perfect location and atmosphere to focus on total mind and body rejuvenation. Spending time in this beautiful and peaceful environment has left me feeling rested and relaxed. I leave Sukhavati with a renewed commitment to maintaining balance and with a stronger focus on my health and wellbeing. Thank you to all the wonderful staff, your generous, kind, and friendly nature has made this experience a truly special one for me and something I will never forget - what a fantastic team you are!

      The treatments were amazing. The spa team is very caring, professional, and genuinely committed to providing first class tailored treatment. This was my first experience with Ayurvedic treatment and I have learned a lot about its benefits and experience them as a beautiful healing regime. My eyes have been open wide to the benefits of an integrated unique program of Ayurvedic healing and way of life. Combined with yoga which I now appreciate as a holistic approach to physical, mental, and wellbeing, I have learned a new way of life.

      Photos don't do Sukhavati justice as to how wonderful it is. It's the best place in the world to experience panchakarma, especially for a first timer. When I returned home, I felt a new energy and my husband commented on how bright and sparkly my eyes had become. I can't wait to go back. Oh, and the staff is fantastic.
