Guest testimonials



We take great pleasure in seeing our guests smiling and feeling well cared for. Here is what some of our visitors shared about their experience at The Shala Bali.

"I´ve been so lucky to stayed at the Shala Bali for four months in total since last year. This is the perfect environment for a yoga retreat. Is a paradise full of beauty and peace, where the lovely and smiley staff made us to feel as home. The Shala, the pool and all the rooms are amazing. Each room has a lovely design, very comfortable and charm, perfect to rest and relax. The restaurant is great; food is delicious… vegan and organic. What else can you ask for as a yogui? Everything at the same place: comfort, beauty, lovely people, swimming pool, amazing Shala and irresistible food!  Is definitely my little place of nirvana in our planet. Looking forward to come back there!"

"The Shala Bali is a true retreat, nestled in the rice fields of Ubud, I could enjoy a real retreat experience,

or if I wished it was only a short walk through rice fields to any amenities I wanted and a short scooter ride

into the heart of Ubud township. The rooms, shala, kitchen/dining area, salt water pool and landscaping

were all beautiful and comfortable. The staff were lovely, meeting any needs I had, and along with the pets,

created a nurturing environment that felt like home."

“The Shala Bali is a beautiful retreat center located amidst rice fields near Ubud, Bali.  The accommodations, facilities, restaurant and staff are all I could ask for. My practice has benefited tremendously from the courses I have attended and from the many yoga friendships that I have formed there.”

"I really enjoyed my month-long stay at the Shala Bali.  The rooms are clean, peaceful and quiet.  Each room has a porch facing the rice fields or the jungle.  The staff are hospitable and very helpful.  The cafe has a great menu, with lots of fresh, tasty Balinese food and very filling smoothies.  The yoga shala is beautiful and secluded, quieting the mind once you step inside.  I also enjoyed swimming in the infinity pool on the shala grounds.  If you are looking to get away to a beautiful and peaceful retreat center, look no farther than the Shala Bali."

"The Shala Bali is nestled between the rice fields and has the most beautiful tranquil ambience and is home away from home. The staff is excellent and takes care of every guests needs. Practising yoga in the Shala to the sound of water following and the energy of our teachers Matthew and Lauren is awesome."

"The Shala Bali is a rare treat that combines exceptional quality, originality, and great service that is delivered in a calm and uncomplicated manner - it is both the look and atmosphere of The Shala Bali that makes it a very special place to stay. Oh, and the food is amazing with the Nasi Goreng the best I've eaten!"

"Hosting my week long retreat at The Shala exceeded all expectations. The food was phenomenal. The design and architecture of the whole place was just so, so beautiful. Myself and my group of yogis were grateful to have a very relaxing time lazing by the salt water pool, and having long lazy swims in the sunshine. The staff were incredibly generous and helpful too. I'm so appreciative of the amount of support I received from you all in the lead up to and during the retreat itself. I'm already dreaming of the next one!"
