Letter from the CEO: 2016 a year in review

December 12,2016

CEO and founder of Sukhavati, Bali, Steve Griffith discusses the 2016 year and what the future holds for Sukhavati, Bali.

As we draw to the end of another year at Sukhavati, I want to express to all our guests on behalf of the entire wonderful Balinese and Melbourne team a very big thank you for taking time to be with us and experiencing what has become an incredible global destination Healing Retreat.

Today more than ever before there is a need for us all to stop and deeply experience our self and reflect on our habits, routines and increase our self-awareness. Being aware of our bodies’ needs is crucial if we are to live well and long.

Sukhavati, Bali uniquely delivers this in the most profound experience to all our guests.

Morning rice walks and bike rides to the beach at Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat & Spa Our Balinese family is very special and of course you have become a part of that cultural experience as this year so many guests have immersed themselves in traditional temple ceremonies, weddings and village experiences, which is another incredible reason to be at Sukhavati.

We have loved involving our guests into activities and experiences such as; our amazing new morning rice walks and bike rides to the beach on our new bikes. Both activities allow guests to start their morning with a positive activity, leaving them inspired for the rest of the day.

Our evening celebrations are always entertaining and gives that little window into the richness of Balinese culture.
