Samyama Meditation Center

About This Center

Samyama was created with meditation and inner work as the inspiration. The center is designed to support deep contemplation and healing of the mind, body and spirit in a quiet, peaceful and supportive environment. We are equipped with a yoga hall, a dark room retreat space, a soundproof meditation room, a salt cave, massage rooms, steam sauna, salt water ice baths, restaurant and are situated in the picturesque Balinese countryside where the natural beauty and simplicity leads the spirit towards inner freedom.


We have multiple accommodation options including a 4 person dormitory for budget guests, two double rooms, and a 6 person villa. Nestled along the path leading to Samyama there are also 3 small cottages available for rent.

Beijaflor - Dormitory - Our shared bunk room sleeps 4 people. The two single bunk beds include plenty of storage space, with stairs instead of a ladder leading to the top bunk for optimal comfort and safety. There is no en-suite bathroom but the shared bathroom facility is a few steps away and offers private bathrooms and hot showers. Wake up to rice paddy views and beautiful morning sun, meditate under our “life cycles” mandala and enjoy your inner journey.

Samarasa - Queen rooms - These are perfect for a couple or a single person. Kamala is themed after the goddess Lakshmi (known as Kamala or Kamalatmika in the tantric tradition) and imbued with abundance, prosperity, fertility, beauty and love. Samarasa means “even essence” and is considered one of the ultimate non-dual states, where all life has the same taste of creation. This room is perfect for the serious seeker of self-realization. Each meditation corner has a small altar aligned with the theme of the room. Feel free to add to the altar or use the desk to journal. There are no en-suite bathrooms but the shared bathroom facility is a few steps away and offers private bathrooms and hot showers.

Villa Samyama - Located next to the meditation center is Villa Samyama, a beautiful, private, semi open-air villa, complete with a pool, a river running by and the best views on the property. There are two private bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, and one mezzanine bedroom with downstairs bathroom. This luxurious villa offers privacy while still in alignment with our vision of creating community. Depending on the retreat, the pool and garden area may be opened up to the entire retreat group during break hours as per the agreement made by the organizer and their clients.

      amazing space for meditation and lovely food in a peaceful loving environment

    I have been here for a month and enjoyed this place so much, people and teachers are caring and knowledgeable. The food is amazing with a variety of vegan comfort food which makes even a meat eater to dye for. The place is very peaceful and quiet and I am missing already to be there. Looking forward to get back as soon as I can and partecipate to another silent retreat

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Because I sometimes work up to 16 hours a day, and need time to stop and breathe. Mary

Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
