Perfect location in Candidasa. Seven private huts on the beach in a private yard. It is suggested to participate in prayer 3x day. However, few foreigners participated. The travelers that stayed there tend to be females who want a cheap safe place and do yoga (as a sport) instead of the meditation. Meals are simple.

Very serene setting among tall palm trees. The location is great, easy to get to and has parking. I really loved my yoga class, the level was perfect for all the students and it was so nice to practice overlooking the ocean.

I went during my first trip to Bali and this was my only destination; I stayed a week. My first night I was reading before bed when I was startled to hear boys' voices hollering and shouting very close to my bungalow; it turns out that the lotus pond next door (not part of the ashram, it's a public place)...

We loved the peace and aliveness of lounging for 5 days beside the ocean, sunrise walks beside the lily pond, afternoon yoga lead by a master, the staff bringing tea at 6 am. My workaholic mind unravelled, I become lazy. The simple food was so good we took pictures of it.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A fully functioning and not for profit Gandhian Ashram which opens all its 7 ocean-view and ocean-fronted accommodation bungalows to full paying guests to finance the bulk of its social oriented operations. It is set on THE premier and sacred site in Candidasa (if not Bali), on a finger of land flanked by the pounding ocean on one side, and the serene spring fed lagoon on the inland side which ends on a road separating it from the village's sacred temples which terraced down the steep and imposing 'Candidasa' hill at the rear. The Ashram is the center of a hive of community oriented activities from its nature cure acupuncture clinic, Gandhian kindergarten, four times a day puja with the members, sublime yoga through daily house yoga or periodic yoga retreat and workshops on its peerless, ocean front 'Bale Yoga' or yoga shala - all lovingly shared and serviced with wholesome vegetarian and fish meals by the Ashram/members, to its discerning guests. ... more   less
