Shanti Toya has five private residential suites or villas. Each villa has private kitchen, private office, and private bathroom, and each has its own distinct architectural characteristics and furnishings. There is also a yoga shala for your yoga activities and a swimming pool for you to relax.

Aneeja villa

Villa Aneeja is a two-story building at the highest elevation. It offers morning and afternoon sunlight and the best views of the ashram including the river and surrounding rice fields. This villa is also nestled into a bamboo cove, complete with the echoes of birds and crickets. Each floor has a veranda and sitting area in front, offering space to take in the fresh breeze, admire nature, or slip into silence.

Gopi villa

Villa Ganesha

Villa Ganesha is a two-story self-contained villa with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and direct access to the yoga shala.

Govinda river suite

Govinda river suite is the premium villa at Shanti Toya. The tranquil pool and river views allow for a complete relaxation into the silence of the jungle.

Yoga shala

At the heart of the ashram, there is a yoga shala, which is surrounded by jungle and overlooking the swimming pool and river. The elevated, thatched-roof, and bamboo pavilion will shelter you from the Bali sun, while allowing a cool breeze to re-energizing your asanas.

Swimming pool

Whether you just received a traditional massage or sweated in an afternoon yoga class, you can enjoy the tranquil setting of the pool and bale area. Nestled in the hillside, with ravine below and jungle canopy above, you can’t help but to relax and melt into a soothing one-ness with the surrounding nature.

The retreat will be held in Shanti Toya, a retreat center set amidst lush green on a river bank in Bali’s peaceful countryside of Penarungan, Mengwi. While immersing in the luxurious, peaceful, and pristine of the natural surrounding of the authentic Balinese villas, you will also have the opportunity to soak in the rich and exotic culture and natural environment of Bali with its vast selection of music, ritual, and ceremony, dance and performance, temples, volcanoes, and waterfalls.

Nice rooms, good vegetarian Balinese food, a beautiful yoga shala, an excellent Balinese yoga teacher, a nice pool to swim, and much more to discover with a German speaking guide, who lives since many years in Bali."

  • Review by Annie Snellen from Bali, Indonesia

    "Shanti Toya is such an absolutely beautiful and sacred healing space in jungle! The river is so soothing, the open air bamboo yoga studio in the trees is an amazing setting for practice, and taking walks through the neighboring rice paddies gives you such an authentic feel of Bali's beauty. The accommodations are clean, safe, and comfortable and I love the open air bathrooms. The spring water pool is stunning and so refreshing! It's so exciting to think about how much awesome healing, transformation, memories, and new friendships will be born here."

  • Review by Satya Frank Burger from Bali, Indonesia

    "An oasis of greenery, flowing water, and secluded from the busy-ness and traffic noise, far enough from Ubud's traffic jam and yet close enough to Nyuh Kuning, Green School, Sayan. This retreat center just opened its doors to public events, daily yoga classes, bodywork treatments, and private retreats. Rooms and whole houses (private kitchen) can be rented."
