Bali Resort English French


Yoga Retreat

Gajah Mina Beach Resort is now able to offer a superb location for small group retreats, seminars, yoga and meditation courses and group activities of all kinds. Enjoy the space and simplicity of our beautiful “wantilan”; a roofed yet open Balinese structure perched on a cliff top overlooking our private beach and the ocean behind it. The name of this site is "Balian”, signifying healer or shaman. But you don’t have to be one to feel the energy flowing here. This is a truly great opportunity to absorb the healing and rejuvenating power of nature in spectacular surroundings.

Several varieties of wonderful Balinese massage are available from our skilled staff.
The black sand from our volcanic beach has been used for over a hundred years to treat rheumatism and related ailments.

Tai Chi

We have a Tai Chi teacher in residence. He will be happy to introduce you to this art of life. Tai Chi Ch'uan is a Chinese system of exercise, the practice of which provides valuable help in extending man's life span, eliminating tension and increasing opportunities of physical, spiritual and mental well-being and equilibrium. In ancient times, this system was originally called "Mien Ch'uan" - cotton fist, because of its emphasis on softness or suppleness. Because of this, it makes it possible for a man to be in tune with nature's vibrations while in motion.

Let our chef prepare some “jamu” (a healing Indonesian decoction made from diverse local plants) especially for you. Also available are hibiscus shampoo; alang alang root tea (good for the kidneys); temulawak (improves liver function and eliminates toxins) and many others traditional recipes.

Our executive chef will complete your gastronomic adventure with delicious vegetarian meals sourced from the organic produces grown in the hills around the Resort. Treat yourself to a fantastic tropical experience.
