Even after just 2 days, I felt revived and refreshed. Words cannot describe the beauty and magic especially the walk down to the... More

WOW, still one of the best places on the island. We stayed in Wanakasa for Nyepi and we absolutely loved it. It is the perfect place to relax and reflect, Beautiful grounds, amazing facilities and fantastic service. Not cheap, but worth every penny. A big thanks to Paul and his team.
