Accommodation

Alam Kita: Nature

According to stories, Alam Kita has the oldest stone house in Karimunjawa. Currently completely renovated inclusive with a beautiful outdoor kitchen in the same style as the original house. This house is the beating heart of Alam Kita, it’s the public space to eat, drink, or just catch up. Some workshops are also hosted over here at the big wooden table if there aren’t group dinners going on.

The Pendopo

The outdoor space for yoga classes and meditation sessions, a traditional open Javanese building. Positioned close to the beach for the most optimal experience of the natural elements such as wind, sea, and the sound of the waves.

Bungalows

The traditional Javanese wooden bungalows are designed for two people, all have an (outside) bathroom so you can watch the beautiful starry sky while taking a shower. The bungalows are decided to be a serene and private space, so if you want to take a moment for yourself after a workshop or just to relax because you feel like it, this space is perfect.

Take your dinner on the porch, read a book, and enjoy a calming shower. The rooms are comfortable with a fan, hot shower, great beds, and a beautiful natural design. Not only aesthetically nice but also well designed so natural elements like the wind can come through. Alam Kita’s bungalows together can hold a maximum of 20 people, it’s small-scale so the property never gets overcrowded.

One of the bungalows is the bridal suite, an extra special place with a four-poster bed and a wooden bathtub. The goal is to make Alam Kita electronic self-sufficient in the future by solar panels. Plenty of sun in Indonesia!

It gives guests the opportunity to relax and enjoy the sunset without running into other people. Besides that, you have the luxury of being able to walk straight into the sea and explore the beautiful reef in front of Alam Kita with its beautiful fishes and other creatures. If you are lucky, you will see rays, Moray eels, parrotfish, clownfish, sea cucumbers, crabs, and more.

Serene space

Close to the house is a serene space where guests can really forget about all their thoughts while enjoying an Indonesian massage (pijit), a treatment of Acces Bars®, or healing-related treatments.

Alam Kita has 10 beautiful traditionally-designed bungalows, spread all over the property with natural elements. Together, they form this oasis of tranquillity.

Program

You live in a dual world, with differences, but are looking for a way to unite. That is where Yin and Yang helps. From the differences with each other, to merge into one; learning to do by not doing.

During the YinYang retreat, you will first discover where you are. Is there already a perfect balance between Yin and Yang or are you more drawn towards Yang (someone who is always on the move) and are you experiencing resistance towards Yin (difficulty meditating for example)? From this consciousness, seek balance and learn to use both forces in a natural way. So that you can shape your daily life energetically from your natural rhythm.

The week starts in Yin and Yang days. On the Yin days, you won’t talk or talk as little as possible. On the Yang days, you'll do and have a more active program in nature. Of course, there is always room to follow your own rhythm and do what you feel you want to do. Later during the week, the days will be divided into Yin and Yang, to feel and master the differences and smooth overlaps even better.

In the morning, you will usually do Qi Gong, followed by breakfast and then a workshop. In the afternoon, you are usually free, and in the evening, there will be another workshop. Delicious vegetarian meals are included three times a day, vegan is possible as well as freshly caught fish on some day(s). Coffee, tea, and water are available all day.
