Let us arrange a personalized spa experience for you. +62 (361) 977577 Contact

The Sacred River Spa is the ritualistic heart of the Resort, exploring healing potential from the unseen (Niskala) to the seen (Sekala). The peaceful presence and mindfulness teachings of resident wellness mentor Ibu Fera are a welcome and integral addition to the Spa’s nurturing environment and deep inner focus. 

 

“Meditation and mindfulness are realistic ways of addressing all sorts of stresses,” Fera explains. “It’s a free, easily and accessible method that goes straight to the root of the problem.” It echoes the Spa’s Balinese healing philosophy: evoking a sense of spiritual connection powerful enough to affect physical change. A former Buddhist nun who studied the Dharma in monasteries across Asia, Fera leads complimentary meditation classes twice daily and hosts a series of Life Talks at the Resort each week.

 

Her teachings centre on helping individuals explore ways in which they can integrate mindfulness into their daily lives, enabling them to connect more closely within themselves. Guests report feeling an immediate connection with Fera, who gently guides all she encounters to further understand and develop their emotional and spiritual intelligence, and to "wake up" the greater peace inherent in each and every one of us.

 

Ibu Fera’s complimentary meditation classes include:

  • Introduction to Meditation – how to start, focus and maintain practice
  • Relaxation Meditation – techniques to calm the body and mind and to release burdens and tensions 

 

Life Talks include topics like the Secret to Happiness, Love and Compassion, Finding Inner Peace and Managing Stress. Here, guests can explore everyday issues and how to overcome them with peace and presence of mind. Each 60-minute class can either be enjoyed as a group.

 

IDR 300,000 per person for non-resident guests or experienced privately at IDR 900,000 up to 2 people.

 

SACRED NAP

Take an afternoon 'air nap' suspended from the ceiling of the bamboo Dharma Shanti Bale in a 100% pure silk hammock, literally cocooned in the tranquility of the Sayan Valley. Feel your entire body relax and rock gently to sleep in the womb-like cocoon far away from any disturbances. Allow yourself to nod off while listening to the sounds of nature and the life story of Buddha as told by Ibu Fera. Deeply soothing and nurturing, this is a not-to-be-missed relaxation technique that will leave you feeling refreshed and recharged, and planning your next air nap.

  • Per person: IDR 300,000 
  • Per person private class: IDR 900,000 up to 2 people

 

MALA MEDITATION

Rudraksha beads are renowned for their unique vibration and are commonly worn by Balinese as protection against negative energies. In this powerful and effective meditation, you will use a 'mala' string of prayer beads made from rudraksha to count a sacred mantra, guided by Ibu Fera. Surrounded by the beauty of nature at Dharma Shanti Bale, you will begin with a short prayer to free the mind from distractions and continue with a chosen mantra that suits your faith and purpose in life. 60 minutes, IDR 300,000++ per person including a Rudraksa Mala Necklace to take home.
