Ubud, Bali, Indonesia
Ubud is Bali’s prominent art center, famous for its painter’s community. But Ubud is special in more ways than one. You will find emerald green ricefields in the stunning central Balinese foothills, the village also used to be the center for medicinal sources. It has its own magic, and its particularly beautiful surroundings and gracious way of life have drawn travelers and artists from all over the world in recent decades; some have even adopted Ubud as their own home.
The magic is easy to find – just take a walk south of the village through its terraced paddy fields to the monkey forest. Freshwater spouts out of the sheer rock at the base of the ravine, and a bath in a secluded, shady spot is purifying.
Welcome to Suly, where tradition and ecology unite for a brighter future. Set amongst beautiful Balinese rice fields and lush greenery, Suly Center offers its guests peace and tranquillity with a truly authentic ancient Balinese vibe spread over a wide-ranging area.
Suly Centre is more than just a venue; it’s a nurturing environment where cultural and ecological awareness converge. They provide essential support not only for indigenous and underprivileged families but also cultivate a deep connection with the natural world. As a place of peace and meditation, they offer a vegetarian, drug-free, and chemical-free environment, supported by underprivileged indigenous staff to intertwine traditional wisdom with modern ecological practices. The courses held here go beyond conventional education, embracing a holistic perspective that encompasses the mind, body, and environment.
The spiritual centre has a vegetarian restaurant in the front, a spacious more private dining in the garden, a large swimming pool, a yoga hall next to paddy fields, a temple shala with authentic Balinese vibes, a paddy deck, as well as a meditation pyramid. All rooms have AC and a private bathroom. They provide three yummy healthy vegan meals on our study days, weekends are free.
Suly has a long history of hosting spiritual gatherings and this energy can be felt in the peaceful, tranquil surroundings and the many little temples spread throughout the spacious tropical garden. It is a quite unique and truly inspiring spiritual location and a perfect setting for a yin yoga immersion. At the same time, it is also very centrally located and as soon you leave the gate you find yourself in the middle of the buzzing local Balinese life not too far away from the Ubud Centre.
