As a place where guests are encouraged to slow down, eat nutritious food and return to the basics of simply living well, Alaya Resort Jembawan provides an array of facilities and services designed with great emphasis on body, mind, and spirit rejuvenation. With its team of onsite experts, including an Ayurvedic specialist and yoga instructor, this boutique wellness retreat offers a variety of lifestyle programs that are tailored to address specific health concerns.
A dedicated yoga pavilion is a focal point in the resort’s outdoor environment. It provides a peaceful spot for in-house guests to meditate or exercise under the guidance of resident instructors. Daily sessions of yoga, which combine deep breathing techniques with stretching movements and poses, complement all wellness programs offered on-site. Additional activities such as Balinese dance lessons and Balinese handicraft classes. Cooking workshops are also available for guests who wish to immerse themselves in the island’s local culture.
Alaya Resort Jembawan features two swimming pools created with early morning laps and water-based exercises in mind. There is ample space for daytime relaxation with reclining chairs and shady umbrellas that are just perfect for lounging or reading. Both pools are enveloped by lush greenery and artistic elements showcasing traditional landscaping techniques by the dearly departed Made Wijaya, who was a local authority on tropical gardens and island-inspired aesthetics.
A haven of relaxation and renewal, DaLa Spa at Alaya Resort Jembawan draws inspiration from the holistic teachings of Ayurveda, which is the world’s oldest healing system. The Ayurvedic concept, which originates from India, is evident in the spa’s interiors as well as its treatment menu where great emphasis is placed on balancing all areas of life and helping the body call upon its own energy to heal. The spa’s treatment rooms were specifically built for wet and dry therapies, with steam boxes, a crystal light bed, and a Thai massage room. An Ayurvedic specialist presides over this unique wellness facility to conduct pre-treatment consultations and recommend integrated health programs.
Herb Library at the front entrance of the resort is a contemporary, healthy, all-day dining venue that serves carefully crafted and nutritionally balanced cuisine with multi-cultural influences. The restaurant offers guests a range of unique plant-based meals for self-professed Herbivores, with sustainably and responsibly sourced fish and chicken options for Omnivores. To complement Herb Library’s menu, renowned living food movement expert Diana von Cranach, together with Suresh, an Ayurvedic practitioner from Kerala in India, provide special Ayurvedic dishes as part of the resort’s wellness concept.
Located in “downtown” Ubud, Alaya Resort Jembawan is within easy walking distance to key attractions in the village such as the popular Monkey Forest Sanctuary, the Neka Gallery, Arma Museum, the Ubud Market, the Royal Palace, and Museum Blanco.
