Rahasia Manis (Sweet Secret)  is a retreat center inspired by a great love for Bali and an appreciation for all it has to offer through its natural beauty and the inherent craftsmanship and creativity of its people. Located near the village of Bayad, in a cooler, quieter location than most tourist spots, it is nestled between the rice fields and jungle. There are several cottages, houses, and rooms built from reclaimed teak from Java.

Overlooking the jungle there is a 10 m x 8 m, open-sided yoga/meeting room with a hardwood sprung floor. Several of the houses have beautiful spaces for smaller classes or private yoga practise and meditation. All over the property are countless little private corners for contemplation, creative pursuits, or simple relaxation.

There is a 10 meter saltwater pool, abundant vegetable gardens and native fruit trees in this paradise. Since the gardens began flourishing, our restaurant has come into being,  specialising in locally grown traditional Balinese foods as well as comfort foods from other cultures.

We are a half hour taxi ride from  Ubud, the nearest city.  You can shop 'til you drop then return to your quiet room at Rahasia Manis for a good night's sleep and wake the next morning to the sounds of roosters, frogs, and birds.

Get back to nature. Get back to Bali!
