Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat & Spa

Naturally enveloped in the serene environs of Mengwi, around 30 minutes drive from Denpasar, is the Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat & Spa. This is a boutique retreat offering a comprehensive wellness program employing traditional Ayurveda treatments.

The property is surrounded by verdant tropical gardens and comprised of 8 beautiful villas. The One Day Taste of Ayurveda was my choice for an indulging treatment program. The introduction to this treatment was a consultation with the Resident Ayurvedic Doctor. After this I was escorted to one of the villas that was to be my resting place for the day.

My first treatment was the Abhyanga, performed in the semi open-air treatment room located close to the villa and overlooking the river. This particular treatment involved long strokes and circular movements using warm herbal oil and executed by two therapists simultaneously. Following this was a Shirodhara; a gentle pouring of warm oil in a continuous stream over my forehead to stimulate healthy blood circulation to the brain. The benefits here are the relief of stress, anxiety and the amelioration of insomnia. This was a very relaxing and pleasing treatment and was followed by the Nasya prescribed by the Ayurvedic Doctor to remove excess kapha dosha in the nose, throat and head area.

An organic vegetarian lunch was served soon after my treatment in the comfort of the villa. After my meal I was treated to an Ayurvedic facial and foot massage. One therapist attended to the foot reflexology while the other started the facial by messaging and applying a Face Pack that helped to soothe, moisturize and rejuvenate the skin.

From the moment I stepped into Sukhavati Ayurvedic Retreat & Spa I enjoyed their indulging attention. For those looking for a complete day of bliss the One Day Taste of Ayurveda is highly recommended.
