I just left Jiwa Damai rejuvenated after a 12 day stay. I had asked the caretaker to design an individual retreat, health package for me. It turned out great. Early morning yoga with Miriam, fruit juice and breakfast, rice field walk, individual meditation, Afternoon meditation with Margret and a wonderful massage by Ketut. There was time enough to go to...

Finding a location that suits the needs of 30 different individuals from different parts of the world with varied expectations is a challenge for any group organizer. My experience in working with Margaret and her staff/volunteers is always professional and very accommodating. They go beyond what is asked to ensure they do their best to meet the various needs of...

I hesitated before writing a review, not because I did not enjoy my stay, quite the contrary ... In fact, Jiwa Damai is the kind of place you would like to keep for yourself, as a hidden place! Actually, I started my stay in Bali at Jiwa Damai ... for 3 days ... it was really too short but so...

I was lucky to spend 6 weeks at Jiwa Damai. It was the first time I discovered Yoga and meditation, what a great discovery. As a volunteer I also learned how to grow organically without chemicals and re-using all materials. The fruit and vegetable growing in the garden has a flavor you need to try to believe. Jiwa Damai is...

I left Jiwa Damai on monday. I've been volunteering for 10 weeks and it seemed to me like a life time, every day there was something different to know and learn about lives , were they humans or plants, all it seemed connected. We were working for the plants and the plants were working for us. I met people who...

In comparison to many reviews here I paid for my room. I can see how, if you're a volonteer, the place seem nice. In Bali you can get wonderful service and beautiful accommodation and food for an affordable price. This was not the place. I did a yoga teacher training here and paid a lot. Yet I got to share...

I was fortunate enough to go back to Jiwa Damai again to teach a yoga program! This secluded abode is such a nice break from the hustle of Ubud. You feel an immediate sense of peace when you leave the main road and enter the gates of serenity. I have choice if I want to come back here and I...

Stayed here from May 1 to 24 for a 200 hour yoga teacher training course. Jiwa Damai claims to be a socially responsible, organic, permaculture retreat centre. I however found this not to be true. From mass produced, overly processed food, to a less than personable owner I would not recommend staying here. Pre packaged tempeh, tofu, noodles, and rice...

I wanted to stay longer in Bali and learn about permaculture. Jiwa Damai was the right place. I was as volunteer making a video about JD foundation and working a bit in the garden.

Jiwa was a perfect piece of paradise to retreat into. The business and magic of Bali is vibrant and I enjoyed being able to come "home" to Jiwa to relax and reflect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Jiwa Damai is a hands-on, socially responsible organic garden and retreat center. We are located amidst lush tropical vegetation in the heart of Bali. We provide a sanctuary in an idyllic, powerful environment where guests can experience tranquility and re-connect to the life-giving qualities of the earth.

Beautifully decorated guest rooms, a spacious lounge and dining area, a fresh water pool, several ponds and a large permaculture garden all situated within an abundant tropical vegetation make Jiwa Damai a perfect retreat place to relax in alignment with nature, learn about permaculture principles and find time for reflection and contemplation. ... more   less
