The Golden Rock Retreat is an innovative detox and healing centre hidden away on the north east tip of Bali. Our program is carefully planned so you can relax, unwind, and experience the peace and tranquility of local Balinese life. Our detox programs are designed to deeply cleanse the body and work on a physical, mental, and spiritual level, leaving you feeling uplifted, and re-energized.
We believe that you cannot simply detox your body and ignore your mind. As the body begins to cleanse, negative energies that may be blocked and stored in the body are released at a mental and emotional level. This gives you a great opportunity to process and let go of years of accumulated stress and negative mental patterns. We encourage all our guests to take personal responsibility in their healing process and enjoy the peace and tranquility of our retreat. Our entire program take into account that you are an individual with your own needs and each detox experience is different for everyone. Our health manager will guide you through the process and discuss your own individual needs during your stay.
Whether we live in the city or the countryside, an unfortunate side effect of living in the 21st century is that our bodies are bombarded daily with toxins and chemicals from the environment, the food we eat, and the water we drink. Chemicals, pesticides, hormones, and pollutants are everywhere. Although our bodies do naturally detox on a daily basis, there are so many different nasty substances passing through us daily, that our own natural defenses may not be enough. If these substances are left to accumulate, the result is often chronic illness, disease, lethargy, and tiredness.
We have four beach-front bungalows and a larger two bedroom villa right on the headland with fantastic views of the coastline.
Beautifully designed Balinese style two bedrooms, two bathroom villas with its own private Jacuzzi, and meditation area. Headland villas are ideal for families and friends (maximum four guests). It has its own stunning views of the sunrise over Lombok and the surrounding coastline.

The four beach-front villas can sleep a maximum of three people in each, either as a double, and one single or three singles. All with their own bathrooms, they are air-conditioned, have televisions and DVD players, a good collection of inspiring books, large balconies, and a private meditation area.
Amenities: 5 seconds from the sea, air conditioning, balcony, indoor/outdoor bathroom, private meditation area.
Our detox plan is a structured program designed to help you get the most out of your fast with as few side effects as possible. The program is supervised by our team of experienced therapists who will guide you every step of the way in your healing process. Some therapies act on a physical level, while others are more emotionally, mentally, and spiritually driven. Some side effects may be a healthy part of your detox journey.
Here at the Golden Rock Retreat, we encourage you to deeply cleanse your body, restore balance, and re-energize your entire body. All our programs integrate deep internal cleansing using modern technologies including infra red sauna, ozone, and oxygen therapy alongside traditional therapies such as massage, yoga, and meditation. The main detoxification organs are the skin, bowels, liver, kidneys, and lungs. Our bodies need to eliminate harmful toxins, so anything that is not excreted naturally needs to go somewhere.
Please note that our structured detox program is designed to help you get the most out of your fast with as few side effects as possible. If you choose not to follow our suggested program in terms of activities and supplements, we cannot be held responsible for any aggravated detoxing symptoms such as headaches or nausea. This includes following our pre-detox advice such as cutting down on coffee and alcohol as well as dairy and heavy meats.
Physical exercise is vital to any cleansing program. A lot of people become toxic due to overly sedentary lifestyles. During your stay at the retreat, you are encouraged to join in twice daily exercise sessions. Harmonizing the meridians and circulatory systems (blood, lymph, and chi) greatly enhances the bodys ability to detox. Yoga stretching and breathing techniques complement this process. These exercises produce an overall sense of balance and well-being to help your whole cleansing experience is more enjoyable and rewarding. If you are already a practitioner, please be aware that our regimes, though guided are just simple routines to supplement our fasting program. If you wish to continue your existing regime, you are more than welcome too.
This therapy uses subtle pulsing magnetic fields that interact with the energy field of the body. A mat that contains a series of coils produces the magnetic fields that can be increased in strength, frequency, and time period.
The magnetic fields are programmed to realign the bodys energy field back into balance. Re-organizing the bodies subtle energy fields is the equivalent of defragging the hard drive on a computer. Chi Kung and meditation are excellent ways of achieving this, but the bio magnetic mat is an effortless alternative and offers great downtime too.
We use enemas after the liver flush and at regular intervals afterwards. We usually use two rounds of two liters which is gently massaged around the colon to dislodge and remove toxic waste that has been loosened during your cleanse. All our enemas are done very carefully and patiently. This is a very deep and rewarding therapy. It takes more participation than colonic irrigation but can have great results if the massage sequence is followed thoroughly.

A good daily sweat is considered one of the best things you can do for your body according to yoga principles. Bikram yoga is even done in a heated room to maximize the benefits. Arteries dilate, improving blood flow throughout the body and tight or overworked muscles begin to relax. The production of white blood cells is stimulated, strengthening the immune system and toxins are flushed out through the skins pores. With an infra-red sauna, the air temperature is comfortable enough so you can detoxify comfortably and safely for longer periods and come out feeling stronger, healthier and in better balance. Medical grade oxygen is used at the same time to promote general well being. A study of patients with rheumatoid arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis showed a reduction in pain, stiffness, and fatigue during infrared sauna therapy.
Golden Rock Retreats FAR Infra Red Sauna is a wooden cubical that you sit in for your treatments. The sauna has panels that produce heat from infra-red waves. This heat has a deeply penetrating effect, helps with blood circulation and the release of waste products as well toxins deep within the tissue layers. It also helps with the breakdown of bacteria and viruses, and may inhibit cancer cell production. The sessions last around 15 - 20 minutes each, however in some cases, clients may have two 15 - 20 minute sessions.
Ozone has been found to be an extremely safe medical therapy, free from side effects. More than 5,000 doctors all over the world use ozone in their practices. Therapeutic applications include treating cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, acute and chronic viral diseases, ulcers, inflammatory bowel disease, and spinal disc problems. Ozone is also excellent for topical treatment of bacterial, fungal and viral infections, wounds, lymphatic diseases, frostbite, and burns.
The theory behind ozone therapy is that the accumulation of toxins in the body is burnt up via the process of oxidation, which breaks down, and eliminates them. Once in the body, the hydrogen peroxide, or ozone, breaks down into various oxygen subspecies which contact anaerobic viruses and microbes along with diseased or deficient tissue cells. The body then becomes saturated with these forms of oxygen until it reaches a state of purity where disease microorganisms are killed and the underlying toxicity is oxidized and eliminated.
We are situated on the coast road, 10 km southeast of Amed, hidden away on the north east tip of Bali.

Nutrition is an integral part of retreat life at Golden Rock. Generally, we serve fresh fruit salads, coconut water, steamed vegetables, brown rice, soy protein, steamed fish, sprouted beans and seeds, fresh soups, and fresh organic eggs.
Many chronic and other diseases start with bad eating habits. Eating at least five portions of fresh fruit and vegetables a day, adding fish twice a week in place of red meat and avoiding as many processed foods and canned drinks as possible, can dramatically lower your risk of chronic disease.
Many experts now also believe that chemicals in food and the environment in general may be responsible for 80% to 90% of all cancers in humans; the remainder is believed to be caused by radiation or viruses. Diet also plays an important role here. Studies have shown that people who consume large amounts of saturated fat and meat have a greater risk of developing cancers of the ovaries, breast, colon, kidneys, and prostrate. Eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables may reduce the risk of certain cancers. Fish, chicken, and tofu are good red meat alternatives. Organic food may also be beneficial as they do not contain pesticides which may be carcinogenic. Obviously, a good detoxification program is vital for disease prevention too.
Many fruits and vegetables contain a lot less nutrients than they did 40 years ago. For example, broccoli and pineapples now have less than half the calcium. Cauliflower now has 40% less vitamin C and sweet peppers 30% less. Specialist diets including low-protein, low-carbohydrate, vegetarian, and vegan may contain less of the essential vitamins or minerals that are needed. Research shows that many people do not reach the daily requirement of vitamins and minerals so suffer from minor deficiency symptoms. Taking a good quality supplement is vital in todays world.
Massage, for many of us, is one of nicest ways to unwind and de-stress. But apart from its obvious benefits, massage is one of the best ways to detox the body. It can help relieve symptoms such as headaches, myalgia, and fatigue.
Toxins are removed from the body via our lymphatic system. As well as reducing edema, lymph massage increases the flow of lymph in our interstitial spaces. Proper circulation in tissue cells is vital for both metabolism and good health.
Without getting too technical, studies have shown that massage creates enough pressure to mechanically push the lymph through the gaps between the endothelial cells of the collection lymph vessels. Raising the skins temperature through massage techniques also forces more junctions between the endothelial cells to open. Both these functions increase the drainage effect on the lymphatic system.
The skin is our largest detox organ and massage movements increase circulation and de-congest the pores. The kidneys and liver are also important detoxification pathways. Regular massage improves the function of both these organs. Massage in the kidney area increases circulation to and from the kidneys and improves their filtration and elimination functions. The liver removes toxic substances from the body including bacteria and drugs such as penicillin ampicillin and sulfonamides. Massage helps circulation to the liver via the hepatic portal vein.
