Rustic chic, seven-bedroom, holistic sanctuary right on the beach

If you’re looking for nightlife and shopping, Taman Ahimsa is probably not the villa for you, but if you want to retreat from the world, awaken your soul, practice yoga and meditation, eat healthy food and experience therapeutic massages, this transformative place will inspire you more than you ever imagined possible. Even if you’re not really into the spiritual concept, and you don’t understand much about chakras, mandala thankas, crystals and healing circles, you will still appreciate the beautiful close-to-nature setting, the sight and sound of the sea, the romantic architecture and the peaceful ambiance.

Although the villa promotes the holistic concept, you don’t have to be on a spiritual retreat to come here; but who knows, you might just be inspired to experience something new. The gardens and interiors are fun to explore too, in every room we found a traditional Balinese instrument, an extraordinary crystal or an antique, or a funky lamp or table. Floors and doors are made from old teak, ironwood and two-toned tamarind wood, which has been recycled from boats and old buildings. Please note the villa has a no smoking policy.

Taman Ahimsa is managed by Fivelements, a company that specialises in holistic healing retreats, centred at Puri Ahimsa, 20km away. For a truly amazing experience arrange for the villa’s driver to take you to Fivelements Puri Ahimsa for a holistic treatment performed by an authentic Balinese healer.

Highlights

The beautiful deserted beachside location; the rustic architecture and use of natural materials; the gorgeous gardens and the serenity, all combined to make our stay at Taman Ahimsa a very special and unique experience. Also of note are the staff, who were very sweet, and the healthy juices, which were superb.

Surprises

The TV room is cosy, but it adjoins one of the bedrooms, so is not the most practical. On the other hand, Taman Ahimsa is not really a TV-watching kind of place. We could have done with some books, games and DVDs though, so remember to bring some with you.

Taman Ahimsa was one of the best accommodations we've ever stayed at. We got married there and stayed with our wedding party. The place is beautiful and has a lovely bali charm. The pool looking out onto the ocean is breathtaking. The living area was spacious and comfortable. We were impressed with the following - the pest control - there was a serious lack of mosquitos, even in the outdoor bathrooms - the staff was amazing. They were able to accommodate everything - arranging drivers, massages, manicures in addition to our requests related to the wedding. - The chef - the food was delicious. - The turn down service in the evening, attention to details - On the night of our wedding, we got an extra special turn down service with rose petals on the bed and rose petals which spelled out our initials in the bath. It is in Cemagi, rural Bali with not much else around. You definitely need a driver if you want to go somewhere. The closest tourist attraction would be Tanah Lot. I would definitely stay here again for a getaway (not to explore Bali) - and so much fun to be able to stay with 6 other couples or a large family.

We had the pleasure of staying at Taman Ahimsa and holding our wedding within the grouds. The villa and staff were absolutely superb and we could not fault them in any way. The accomodation and grounds are stunning and the food was delicious. We will definately be returning!

I consider myself pretty well travelled, so it's rare that my breath is completely taken away, but Taman Ahimsa exceeded all expectations. It may be my favourite place on the planet, particularly because of the delightful staff led by Prahma.

I celebrated my 30th birthday here with eight friends and family and though we had made a number of plans to explore the area, aside from a sunset visit to Tanah Lot (great for holiday snaps) and two dinners out, we did not leave. Get the yoga teachers and masseuses to come to you and kick back by the pool, on the day beds, and bury yourself in the black sand on the beach.

The rooms themselves are truly palatial and the bathrooms are stunning. I could not recommend this highly enough for a grown family or a group of friends.

The exact location of the villa is somewhat difficult for taxi drivers to locate especially if you arrive in the evening. The villa itself is extremely beautiful and a great retreat especially if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and looking for a place to unwind in tranquility. The view from the pool of the beach is breathtaking. The rooms are spacious with a modern yet rural feel. The staff are friendly and cater to your needs. The location is far from Kuta and Seminyak so you will need to use a driver if you want to do shopping but this place is a perfect stay as you can order in and enjoy the facilities the villa has to offer.

This place is good and in a good quite location. The swimming pool is very big and the open layout nice. Service was very good and the staffs were very helpful. My mother and I love Balinese open style design, so The Ahimsa Villa is perfect. The Ahimsa provides a transfer service, which we used were really helps us to solve all the traveling problems.
