The Shunyata Villas are wonderful! We just loved staying there and relax. The Villas are amazing - perfect interior design, service and privacy. The food is excellent and the owners of the retreat are very nice. The whole detox package that we booked is perfect - you have yoga classes, detox bathes, massages and crystal table sessions. It's a lifechanging experience!

It's very small just 3 villas, + a couple more upcoming, and it's absolute heaven, right above the mighty ocean... The owners are both German - so everything is perfekt (!): well thought-out/eco-friendly/community responsible - and they are experts in Tai Chi and Qi Gong (yoga also available - I have not tested) . I have tested the Kundalini massage which is incredible! The food is healthy ( a bit oily maybe sometimes...) and they happily cater to vegan, gluten free...etc. The lack of choice for dinner is a bit annoying first, but that's one thing less to think about and I ate less this way, which is great! :-)
... It is luxury, so not cheap to Bali standards, but you get plenty for you money, very big villas, private pool + 36m (!) infinity pool... They also are generous with their time and energies :-)
Sadly one cannot swim just below the hotel, but the free transfer to Virgin Beach is easy and the beach there absolutely gorgeous :-)
We did not want to leave and hope to come back soon! :-)

Shunyata was our first stop in Bali as part of our honeymoon in which we stayed 3 nights. After a 25 hour journey and 2 hour drive from the airport, it was still worth it. We got to the villa close to midnight so couldn't realise the pure beauty until the next morning. And was it worth it, that view! We stayed an the sky villa and had an amazing private pool, you'd probably struggle to find a private pool so big anywhere else. The villa was huge, bedroom, wardrobe area, the bathroom was incredible, amazing tub, these was a separate day lounging area with dining area and a kitchenette, as well as another outdoor bathroom. We wanted somewhere we could relax for a few days after a long flight and hectic wedding, and this is the place to go. The staff were lovely, extremely polite and the food was nice and very organic. We had most of our meals in our separate dining area in the villa but also went to the restaurant, the views from both were to die for. You could just stare into the sea for ages after breakfast. Could not fault anything, would recommend to anyone wanting to relax and getaway to peace and quiet and not wanting to be disturbed. Bliss.

To get to Shunyata you follow a small side road that is currently been remade so I would use a local taxi service that knows the area.
On arrival we were warmly greeted and shown to our villa. This was to us the only disappointment to our stay. When we book a villa especially as there are only 3 here (with another being built) expect it to be a stand alone villa however ours, The Delight Villa, would prove to have another above it. Had we known this we wouldn't have booked it as I dont consider this a villa.

Everything else about our stay however was excellent and soon turned our disappointment into a 5 star review.
Having said that the room was very well decorated and the fittings were modern classy and tasteful.

The place is very remote which we knew so expect to eat at the onsite restaurant. I must say that this is exceptionally good. Although there is only 1 dish on the menu each day when it was something we didnt like other options were soon offered. The service and food really was 1st class. We had Red Snapper which tasted fantastic and was cooked to perfection.

The owners of Shunyata are very friendly and welcoming and this is the approach they have instilled in the staff.

The owners approach sits perfectly with the ambience of the place and we couldnt have asked for more while staying here.

I would recomend Shunyata without any hessitation we loved the food the people and the premises.

Dear Tony W
Thank you so much for this great review and the compliments for the team. We are happy about the staff. Everybody is really devoted to let the guests experience the special atmosphere and energy of this little spot in paradise. It is true, our Villas are no standalone buildings, but they all offer spacious living and sleeping areas, romantic open-air bath areas, sundecks or terraces with a magnificent ocean view and private pools.
Due to the growing number of requests we are expanding our capacities. The construction of our two new Villas is nearly done and they are ready to be booked from September onwards.
Sunny greetings from Bali, the Shunyata Team
