Posted onStunning, don't miss itThe incredible beauty of the gardens, the lovely villas, the spa treatments, the diving, the nearby rice fields and ocean, is surpassed only by the beauty and graciousness of the hosts and staff. Mahendra and Budiani are gems, antidotes to some of the craziness in the world, and their staff is superb. The Zen diving program is amazing; not only did my pranayama/breathing make me a better diver, it helped to increase the connectedness I feel to the ocean and it's beautiful life. Don't miss the mimic octopus with the muck diving...thank you Gede, wonderful dive master! If you are new to yoga and/or meditation, give it a try. The sessions here are friendly and some of the best I've experienced anywhere. (Don't let the price put you off. It may seem expensive from Indonesian standards, but is worth every single rupiah.)
