Day 2

Ubud

Your morning will begin with a transfer to Fivelements Puri Ahimsa for a couple’s Balinese massage. Traditional healing techniques encourage your bodies to nurture harmony with spirit, the environment and with one another. Referred to as “nature’s living energy,” aromatic essential oils are combined with the soothing power of a traditional Balinese massage to stimulate your natural immune system and provide relaxation.

Next you will visit the Agni Hotra Fire Ceremony, an ancient fire ceremony originating from the sacred Vedic Hindu texts. Specially trained priests make offerings of ghee and grains into the fire while reciting Sanskrit mantras to invoke blessings of health, abundance and transformation. Participants are invited to join the priests and offer rice into the fire, as a symbol of divine light. The ritual is for cleansing, purification and integration of all things, creating harmony and healing.

After your morning of relaxation and reflection, you will be returned to your hotel where you can enjoy your afternoon and evening at leisure.

Day 5

Ubud

Today’s excursion begins with a drive north to the Bedugul Regency District, renowned for its stunning beauty and its three caldera lakes, Beratan, Tamblingan and Buyan.
