Instructors 1

Ketut Arsana

Master Ketut Arsana was born in the village of Padang Tegal, Ubud, and grew up in a family of traditional Balinese shaman healers (Balian) passed on from his grandfather and previous ancestors. Ketut Arsana began his healing practice with his own family, and gradually extended it to neighbors and eventually anyone who heard about him. He continually improved his knowledge by way of learning from other healers, praying in temples and other sacred places, and through spiritual discipline. Ketut Arsana found his spiritual teacher, Maha Guru, and surrendered to God (Lord Siva).

"I can call Om Ham Retreat Center my HOME away from HOME!!"

EVERYTHING. The staff, the drivers, the chef. I REALLY didn't want to leave. Tini made the entire booking process seemless. I made my own itinerary up as to places I wanted to see and they accommodated me with no problems. Even suggested & took me others places without charging me extra. LOVED my drivers, Sari and Daewoo. Met some wonderful woman from around the world who were traveling solo and we bonded effortlessly. This retreat was MUCH needed and priceless! I am BEYOND blessed and happy to have made the decision to state at Om Ham Retreat and currently planning a group trip to bring my girlfriends back next year!!!

"5 Days at Om Ham..."

I appreciated the time and care taken to provide adequate and comfortable provisions at an Ashram Yoga Retreat Center.

The atmosphere was lovely...? the staff was great and the fresh fruits, gourmet meals and spa services were awesome!

I am so thankful for the beautiful experience I had while spending time at Om Ham.

I look forward to visiting again soon!

"Feel like dreaming"

Staff are very friendly and helpful. My mum and aunt and I love On Ham very much! Water of swimming pool is very clean and natural, no chemical smell. Quiet place with lots of different plants and insects in the garden. Food is good. The detox soup helps a lot for cleaning. We drunk ginger tea with honey every day. And the fruit juice is very tasty! Spa therapists are very good. Drivers are cool! Thanks for everything!

"Stunning location, lovely staff, plenty of yoga"

The staff were all locals, and all so friendly and accommodating. There was yoga every day which is what I was looking for, and all but one class was very small and intimate, with people of similar beginner level to me- perfect! The room was amazing, especially the bed. A perfect little getaway not far from the busy centre of Ubud. Loved the food. Made great friends. The 4 night package is too short!

"A fantastic retreat experience!"

The peace and the energy of this place are magical. The staff, terapists and yoga teachers are the warmest, most friendly and adorable people I've ever met. The location is perfect as well as it's sufficiently removed from the touristy hassle of Ubud, which can be quite overwhelming. This retreat was simply ideal for relaxation and for recharging my batteries... And beyond the expected relaxation I had the bonus of a spiritual experience too - as I unexpectedly had a chance to meet with the guru, and to take part in a regular ashram ceremony. Pure magic!

Fantastic staff - so friendly and helpful, excellent food and the activities were a perfect balance of relaxation and physical challenge. This was my first yoga experience and I was worried that I wouldn't be able to keep up however the instructor was very attentive to all our abilities and I throughly enjoyed it. The massages & meditation were also fantastic. I definitely feel relaxed and rejuvenated and will visit again.

"A Quiet Retreat"

I was there for 4 days 3 nights, I did not come out of the compound at all (except to the opposite Asrhram one of the night) If you are looking for a quiet getaway, this is the perfect place, sleeping and waking up by the green paddy fields, hardly any traffic, some motorbike sounds (during the day)... other than that, it is a perfect quiet place for you to sleep and rest, and perfect place for yoga and books too!!

Massage was amazing. Every therapist was wonderful. I wouldn't suggest a mani pedi as things were a bit unsanitary.

This place is a little hidden gem... I loved every moment of it. I was there for the 8 day replenish package. The staff, the facilities, the yoga/meditation sessions, the spa... and not to forget the FOOD was out of this world. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who needs time out from the world. I left feeling like I was on cloud nine, truly relaxed and replenished.

"Would go again all tho I wouldn't buy a package as it just wasn't worth the money. All tho we were refunded some money I would like to leave an honest review as I don't think they have changed the prices of the the retreats. My suggestioj is definitely go but book the hotel and do the activities as and add on as it will be cheaper. So sorry to leave this review, my time was awesome and I absolutely loved most things but the dollar figure didn't add up. Was rectified with refund and assured that team was going to read look into their packages. "

Massages were amazing, yoga was great, the facilities were good and pool was amazing.

"Die Flucht ergriffen!"

Der Restaurant- und Kaffeebereich waren entzückend eingerichtet und das Servicepersonal sehr aufmerksam. Das Essen war ganz in Ordnung.

Für Hotelgäste, die kein Retreat buchen, mag dieser Ort sehr passend sein, denn die Infrastruktur (Zimmer, Pool, Yogaräume, Restaurant) ist gepflegt und das Personal extrem bemüht. Für ein Yogaretreat ist davon dennoch absolut abzuraten!

Die Yogastunde von Master Ketut Arsana war an und für sich gut, nur dass ich erfuhr, dass er nur einmal die Woche eine Stunde leitet.

Om Ham Retreat Center

I had a wonderful stay at Om Ham for 5 nights. I was only going to stay for 3 but it was so beautiful that I extended my stay for longer. The staff are so friendly and helpful and I felt very welcomed and comfortable there. I love the Tantra yoga which was my first time to try, and the Spa was amazing, I had the massages and a facial which all included

a drink and tea and a foot bath also, the staff in the Spa are also fantastic. I have no complaints and would like to return back again. I give 10/10 for everything, good price and service, clean and tidy.

This is around the corner where my family lives and around 5km north of Ubud. I went to this place to take a yoga class, dinner and a swim. When I went there to inform about the classes they were really friendly and helpful. Price was really good and I asked if I could go for a swim after the class. That was no problem. I do yoga regularly but never did Kundalini yoga. This was different but nice. You have a terrific view from the big space you are doing yoga in. You see rice paddies all over the place, the green of those paddies (in Indonesia) is a green you never see somewhere else. The teacher was friendly and very good trained. Sometimes it looked like he was paying to much attention to himself in the mirror than the students. It was a good class and sweated like crazy. What I have heard from students, who actually stay there, I heard good stories about the rooms and the food so I decided to stay for dinner. First the swim, nice (chlorine) pool overlooking the paddies. Went home for a shower and came back for dinner. Can't remember what I took but I remember it was great and fresh. Again overlooking the paddies at night this time and it was full of fireflies. Really nice. Staff was very attentive and service was good. Public spaces looked very clean and well maintained. Will definitely come back for a class and dinner when I am in Ubud region again. Prices are reasonable.

I have stayed at Om Ham for 5 nights at the end of June. I was super pleased with the hotel, its wonderful staff, its facilities, not to mention the restaurant and the delicious local food. I am not a big yogi, but I enjoyed the yoga classes, a bit different, than any other other yoga class, I have ever participated in. It is called Kundalini Tantra yoga, worth trying ladies and gents and it is not hard to follow.

I am a very experienced traveller and I like to find special places, I believe this hotel was a jackpot choice :). The rooms are average, but it doesn't even matter, the view, the peacefulness, the kindness, helpfulness and smiles of the staff worth every penny. It is truly genuine from the first moment. Everybody calls you by your name, they know your preferences, they are very flexible with the schedule, because you do get one, if you sign up for the retreat program. It is just perfectly organised. The spa treatments are divine, completely relaxing. As I mentioned earlier the food, smoothies are all organic, healthy and just delicious. There is a huge and varied vegetarian menu, but no worries, there is also a menu for the meat lovers.

The wifi comes and goes, but honestly, I wasn't even bothered :).

I was a single traveller, this hotel was the perfect choice for me, I have met some wonderful people amongst the other guests and also I really felt like the staff took care of me. Their smiles are contagious:).

Khan from the reception was a really big help, so was Aya and Hendra. I forgot all the names, but everybody would deserve their name written here.

I would also recommend this hotel to couples, not just solo travellers.

Go and explore, have fun, you'll go home as a changed person... i guess that is what Bali does to you.

I will be back for sure!

My friend and I just recently spent one week at OM HAM.

We were looking for the authenticate yoga retreat experience, the type that really brings you back to earth.

Before I continue I want people to be aware that this is a holistic resort. Which means no alcohol available in the resort, screaming and yelling are frowned upon and no prima donna attitude wanted. This place is for relaxation, yoga, meditation and quiet contemplation.

The moment we stepped foot in the resort we felt at eased. My favourite spot was the sitting area above the restaurant. There, I can see the rice fields, the street and locals going about their business.

We stayed at the most basic room (twin beds) and we were happy that it did not have a TV as we have come to Ubud to enjoy the outdoors and not sit in our room.

The food was amazing as it was all organic and catered for my diet (i'm fructose intolerant).

The servings were adequate and the prices were amazingly cheap in comparison to the Ubud centre.

The massages were affordable and staffed by the friendliest, happiest girls. Especially one particular girl I will miss so much, ILUH. In my 7 days there I often come across her during my walks on the resort and will chat to her like she is a long lost friend.

The staff all around were amazing as well. Here are my special mentions

To the Guru and his yoga instructors - I feel so honoured and blessed to have had the opportunity to practise yoga with you. You are patient, calm and motivated. This alone earned the resort 5 stars in my review

The staff at the restaurant - thank you for catering to our needs. you have made our eating experience in Om Ham even more special.

The operations manager - I'm sorry we never got to say goodbye to you but you were so good at tending to our every needs. PLUS PLUS for organising flowers and birthday dinner for my friend it was such a nice thought.

The front of house boys - lovely to talk to and they do try to help as much as they can with a smile (genuine smile).

The drivers - you guys are great. thanks for the drop offs (sorry we were late sometimes) and pick-ups.

My final statement;

Thank you Om Ham for having us. We are grateful to have shared our 7 days with you in Ubud and no doubt we will come back again.

Om Ham retreat is beautiful.. Such a tranquil setting. I enjoyed my stay there. I did a custom detox program that was very reasonable and pampering. They have great lymphatic, deep tissue and relaxing massages each with a glass of lemongrass and honey tea in a champagne flute while you get a mini foot massage. And some of the treatments are followed with an herbal bath... Yum! The kundalini tantric yoga was great. Each Sunday there is a Two hour yoga class with the the great Guru Arsana which you don't want to miss. The pool was great and the food was delicious and healthy. The staff were friendly, professional and Very accommodating. I would for sure stay again!
