THE YOGA SANCTUARY
The Yoga Sanctuary, our 2000 square foot (186 sq meters) space can accommodate large yoga classes, lectures, performances and even weddings. It has been heralded as “Asia’s best place to practice Yoga” and offers sweeping views of Holy Mt. Agung as well as the Indian Ocean and Bali’s outer laying islands.
The Sanctuary is also used for lectures, weddings, music performances, dance classes, puppet shows and more.
After studying the weather patterns for 5 years, we were able to carefully design and construct the Sanctuary, as well as the other buildings at Floating Leaf Eco-Luxury Retreat, to take full advantage of the wonderful breezes our micro-climate offers. These near continuous breezes that flow through the property, protect us from the humidity and mosquito problems experienced in many other areas of Bali.
The Yoga Sanctuary makes use of passive cooling, green walls and roofs, sustainable materials and other eco-friendly methods to enrich a deeply natural yoga experience.
Enjoy the feel of your bare feet on our strand-woven bamboo floors. Strand woven bamboo takes the worlds most sustainable material, bamboo and converts it into a dense, ultra strong material that acts like a hardwood and is designed to last 30-40 years.
THE MELATI SPA AT FLOATING LEAF
The spa’s owner Maryam Putu Doliveck, is a member of one of Bali’s Royal Families and the sole recipient of health and wellness recipes past down through generations.

Floating Leaf Eco-Retreat ~ Jl Pantai Purnama 42 ~ Sukawati, Bali 80582 ~ Indonesia
Join Nina in the magical oasis of Sukawati Bali for a week of blissful transformation. This unforgettable experience will provide you with space to deepen your yoga practice, experience traditional Balinese cultural healing, and participate in treasured off-the-beaten-track excursions. Guided by compassion, connect with your true Self through movement, sacred sound, devotional practices. Let go of anything and everything that is preventing you from experiencing the joy that you are. Experience life as a Jivanmukta, one who is liberated and free in this lifetime.
Each day of the retreat offers openings for transformation. From practicing yoga in the outdoor sanctuary with sweeping views of Holy Mt. Agung as well as the Indian Ocean and Bali’s outer laying islands, to enjoying delectable garden to table vegan meals. Occasions for living in tempo with our natural world and freeing yourself from illusions of reality are abundant. Live yoga off the mat with an unparalleled itinerary: In cooperation with the Balinese charity Muntigunung Community Social Enterprise, we will trek through a remote area retracing the steps of the women in Muntigunung, who for centuries have walked over 15 km daily, to gather and haul water back to their communities. Through our participation we will support the construction of water catchment building, contributing to the education and happiness of local Balinese women and their families. With visions of Hanuman dancing in our heads, we will visit the Sacred Monkey Forest of Ubud to interact with monkey beings, explore a mystical monkey cemetery, historic temples, and an ornate dragon bridge. Our transformation will culminate in a ritual purification of body and soul at Bali’s Holiest Natural Spring, Tirta Empul.
Accommodation is modern eco-luxury single or double garden rooms with private baths. Our multi-award winning retreat center offers a myriad of blissful spa treatments, indulgent chromatherapy healing pool with built in loungers and water hammocks for relaxation and quiet contemplation, and on site organic garden…why not wander through and visit your veggies before dinner? All levels of yoga practitioners are welcome and all will be lovingly accommodated. No previous “retreat experience” is required. Do not worry; our happiness is in your comfort.
