Testimonials from guests
Incredible mind, body, soul wellness retreat providing world class Ayurvedic nutrition and treatments. I am so grateful I found Sukhavati through my internet searches. My only regret is that I didn't plan to stay longer. 7 days reset my mindset as well as a few bodily functions including my digestive system and my metabolism. The service is top notch. They wish to meet your every need. Just ask and it will happen. I will definitely be returning.
I've been to Sukhavati three times now and I don't know what to say. It surpasses all my expectations, from the treatments, to the beautiful food, to the brilliant office staff, and the doctor on site. It's just an absolute pleasure to come here each and every time and I'll definitely be coming back again. If you ever get the opportunity to come to Sukhavati, just do it. You'll never regret it.
After experiencing the devastating loss of four prominent figures in my life within a span of just nine months, coupled with the relentless demands of my work, which often extended to 16-hour days, I found myself completely drained and exhausted. It was during this challenging time that a friend recommended Sukhavati, an Ayurvedic retreat. Although I had no prior knowledge of Ayurvedic medicine, something about the place resonated with me, and without hesitation, I booked my stay. From the moment I arrived, Sukhavati felt like a haven of tranquility. Overwhelmed by fatigue, I spent the initial two days simply sleeping and rejuvenating in between the blissful treatments offered at the retreat. Being there alone allowed me the much-needed space from the world and its burdens, yet surprisingly, I never felt isolated. In fact, I made some wonderful friends during my stay, which brought a sense of warmth and connection to my healing journey. The retreat struck the perfect balance for me. I appreciated the freedom to choose whether I wanted to spend time with others or withdraw into solitude. Each day was thoughtfully planned, providing structure without feeling constricted. The delectable food served at Sukhavati left a lasting impression on me, and I was inspired to purchase Ayurvedic cookbooks upon returning home. Detoxifying my entire body was a profound experience, and I won't deny that it brought forth emotions I had suppressed throughout the tumultuous year. However, the insight shared by my Alexa meditation teacher (I highly recommend this course too), Sam, proved invaluable. He likened the process to shaking a bottle of soda; initially messy, but eventually leading to a settling calm. And indeed, as time passed, I began to feel an incredible sense of well-being, I now feel better than I have in at least 6 years. Sukhavati played a pivotal role in helping me heal and find peace within myself. They provided the support I needed to unlock the tightly sealed lid that had kept my emotions bottled up. I am deeply grateful to them for facilitating my journey towards renewal and rejuvenation. Without a doubt, I wholeheartedly recommend Sukhavati to anyone seeking solace, healing, and a transformative experience. My time there was profound, and I look forward to returning someday to continue this journey of self-discovery and well-being.
Experience Ayurveda in the Most Beautiful Setting We did the one day Ayurvedic experience at Sukhavati and it was the most incredible day! This was our first Ayurvedic experience though I have been interested in learning more about Ayurveda for some time and was familiar with it through my yoga practice. I came across Sukhavati and thought the one day experience would be perfect to try during our honeymoon in Bali. It was everything I wanted and more. The grounds are stunning, the staff is so lovely, the treatments were top notch, and it couldn’t be more relaxing. We drove a short drive from Canggu (arranged through Sukhavati) and started our day with a fresh coconut juice and consultation with the doctor. They provided us a villa to use for the day which was lovely. Our first treatment was a facial in the villa which was absolutely amazing - so relaxing! We then had a wonderful vegan lunch in the main eating area and enjoyed speaking with a few other people who were doing longer stays. After lunch we relaxed and then did two additional spa treatments - Abhyanga massage and Shirodhara. Wow. Everything about it was incredible. I look forward to one day going back!
No stone left unturned, the treatments are first class and the meals are prepared by amazing chefs. Everything was on time, super relaxing and feeling much energised and refreshed, balanced hormones, clearer skin and healthier habits.
