Are you looking for the true balance of mind, body and soul? Imagine a wellness retreat where you can rest knowing you will get home rejuvenated. Whether you are in Canggu temporarily or settling in for a couple of months, whether you are into yoga, vegan food or conscious lifestyle Samadi has it all lined up for you! If you need a little break from the hustle and bustle of Canggu, you will definitely love this gem!
Samadi is nestled in the quiet area of Canggu in the southern part of Bali. It will take around 1-hour drive from Ngurah Rai International Airport. The closest beaches Batu Bolong and Echo are within 20 minutes walking distance.
Looking from the outside, you would never guess how big this space is!
The structures are build of wood recycled from fishing boats, Javanese houses and old railway tracks. Ten exquisite bedrooms await, constructed of natural materials and tucked gracefully into the lush jungle. The rooms are furnished with an eco-friendly design and all have air conditioning, wifi and pool access.

Are you ready for a REAL massage? The Spa treatments consist of Balinese massage combined with the therapeutic bodywork techniques for truly unique wellness. We had a wonderful experience with Mega and Nyoman who are incredibly skilled therapists. It is highly recommended to start your day with Ashtanga yoga followed by 1 hour of Healing massage to relieve any muscle pain.

Our favourite part of Samadi was the delicious food prepared with loving hands. The restaurant offers Ayurvedic, vegan and vegetarian cuisines and supports conscious eating approach. Raw food lovers will find yummy desserts. Some of the herbs and greens come from their own vegetable garden while the rest is supplied by local, organic farmers. There is always a wide selection of tropical fruits and free of charge of drinking water. We can personally recommend a Japanese inspired Ninja Bowl loaded with tons of minerals and protein. There is a whole range of plant-based milks, kimchi, chutneys and jams to buy. Finally trying here Vegan Bloody Mary is a must!
