Top Secret

“There are no secrets here,” two different managers sweetly affirmed to me, when I had almost given up looking. This may be true, as the Shunyata mission is based on uncovering and discovering (thoughts, territories, and ideas).


Shunyata Villas is the brainchild of two German body and psychotherapists Juergen and Maria Neurohr who wanted to create a wellness retreat based on a combination of Hindu spirituality, Indonesian healing methods and modern science. They describe their decision to open Shunyata as a response to an “inner calling.” Their second property, premised on similar values, is located in Sri Lanka.

The Review

If there is a formula to achieving inner peace, Shunyata is the place to find it. Nestled in Eastern Bali’s thick forests, this sparkling white property is founded upon introspection and deep thinking. Without any forceful impositions, guests find that soon after they check in to the sea-facing property, they take on Shunyata’s cultural codes. Foreign dialects are exchanged in whispers, and being minimally intrusive while spending time around the magnificent, chlorine-free pool is normative. For all Shunyatans, nature plays orchestra harmonizing the sounds of crashing waves and birdsong through the day.

The high quality facilities in the hotel are designed to emphasize the quest for peace. Different therapies kinds serve the dual function of relaxation and self-reflection and are conducted by a team of in house, culturally diverse experts. The first class kitchen-- led by a superb Indonesian chef -- churns out organic, healthy, and customized meals; their locally infused, fresh flavours linger long after check out. Together, every service and action here is designed for self-healing and betterment with minimal dependence on manufactured and chemical processes.
