During this retreat, you will be staying at one of Shanti Toya Ashram's villas and suites. Shanti Toya offers an authentic taste of Bali, nestled in the quiet hillside of a lush jungle ravine and surrounded by the rice paddy farmlands of Penarungan village. It is located approximately 15 minutes southwest of Ubud, a city-center highly regarded and sought after by yogis worldwide as the modern hub of the yoga community.

The property itself is the home of a peaceful gurgling river and an abundant holy spring water source. In addition to the four new villas (each with guest rooms and bathrooms) and two private villas, there is also a beautiful second story thatch-roof bamboo yoga shala, communal open-air dining and lecture hall, reception, store, spring water-fed swimming pool, bale, and an organic vegetable garden.

There are plenty of nature walking opportunities just outside the ashram, through the quaint village and beautiful rice paddies. Shanti Toya Ashram is set in an intimate setting, perfect for smaller retreats of up to 14 guests, which allows a richer experience, more personalized attention, and authentic friendships to form between retreat-goers.

    "We had a great time and Azuka the main yoga instructor was amazing. Our room was, apparently, the best room and it was huge with a great view of the jungle. The bathroom was very tatty and the towels were really old. The food was sometimes pretty good and other times very basic but overall I enjoyed the food. The swimming pool was spring fed which was lovely. The yoga instructor did not turn up for one of the evening classes. The location is amazing but a little bit of love and maintenance would make such a difference. Also, some new crockery and towels would be good."

    "We were asked once if we wanted our room cleaned during the 7 days."

    "Overall we really enjoyed our stay and it was great value."

    "Set up as a Charity Foundation this beautiful Ashram/ Retreat Center set's the perfect location for Individual retreats, training, or an individual stay and is deeply connected to the local community and resembles a part of the old Bali that gets more and more hard to find. The real deal for anyone who wants to practice yoga, relax, rejuvenate and connect to your surroundings."

    "We are just flying back home after three weeks in peaceful nature, enjoying the lush green of the forest listening to birds, frogs, and cicadas. 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."

    "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."

    "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."
