Rahasia Manis is an ideal location for holding workshops, retreats, weddings or gatherings. Located near a quiet traditional village, it is only 30 minutes from central Ubud, 10 minutes from some of Bali’s holiest places and temples, and very close to several excellent restaurants. We are a lot higher than most of the tourist locations, therefore the temperature is considerably cooler, and there are fewer mosquitoes. Usually, it is fine to sleep without a mosquito net (although all beds have them). We choose not to have AC, as it is not necessary and all of our houses are designed to optimise the natural breezes. All of the houses have either ceiling or wall fans.
Access is a 5 minute walk along a narrow rice field path, paved except for one 5 meter stretch. There are also several sets of steps on the property. We love our seclusion and the peace and freedom provided by being off the "beaten path", however, it means we are not the ideal location for everyone, especially those with mobility issues or seeking a more resort-style western experience.
Currently, we can comfortably house a maximum of 33 people, and for any overflow there is plenty of alternative accommodation very close by, some being right next door. Each house is completely unique, apart from our 4 luxury huts, and even those have different colour schemes. Every house has a shower and abundant hot water, and some have bathtubs also. Every unit has a fridge, and several have complete kitchens. Every house has its own personal safe. There are currently 16 + sleeping spaces available in 12 different buildings, each en-suite.
There is a separate spa area, and by mid 2020 we plan to have a stonework jacuzzi overlooking the jungle and (fingers crossed) an infra-red spa. These will be available for an additional hourly fee. There are also countless little corners for relaxing or meditation. There is a fire-pit for the use of groups only, and a 10m saltwater pool made from volcanic stone and quite deep.
The large yoga hall is a separate rental, and besides being perfect for yoga and meditation it is also ideal for classes of any kind, performances, dancing or plays. There are also several smaller spaces suitable for meditation, yoga, art classes or any other kind of classroom situation.
For groups of 14 or more booking on a per person basis, we give 1 facilitator complementary accommodation plus meals for that person, (in accordance with the plan the rest of the group is having).
Event leaders are welcome to organise their own events, in which case the price of renting the property will include maintenance and cleaning. Meal plans and costs can be agreed upon separately, plus laundry and all other housekeeping needs. This will not include our involvement in any of the actual planning, scheduling or running of your event outside of these required basics.
Alternatively, we have 14 years experience in organising and running events of all kinds, if you would like our assistance please let us know and we'll create and price a package tailored to your requirements.
Set package prices for facilitating events can also include:
Arranging visits with traditional Balinese healers.
Organising shopping excursions, adventure experiences, and tours of ancient sites.
