A five-minute walk to Thomas Beach, Sannyas is foremost a yoga retreat, but when they are not running teacher training or private retreats, a handful of lovely midrange rooms are available to non-yogis and it is really worth nabbing one if you get the opportunity.

Set in a beautiful tropical garden filled with fruit trees and flowers, the double-storey retreat combines Balinese and Mediterranean architecture with waves, curves and natural materials—stone, terracotta, bamboo and wood with a fabulous swerving open bamboo and thatch yoga sala on the roof. Climb further up for a delightful crows’ nest chillout spot with views over the trees to the ocean—a terrific setting for a sundowner.

The lower level houses the nine guest rooms, open kitchen (with in-house chef) and dining / living space all overlooking a small, but inviting swimming pool. Up for grabs are one double, six twins, one triple (a bunk plus a single) and one quad room (two bunks), all rooms are air-con with hot-water ensuite bathroom, some featuring fabulous moulded bath tubs.

Spotless rooms are spacious, bright and airy with cool terracotta flooring, moulded cement built-in storage and super-comfy (mostly) mozzie-netted beds. Don’t expect too many mod-cons, this is a yoga and meditation retreat after all, but also don’t expect the austerity of a monk’s cell—the design is relaxed, tropical and stylish. Sannyas is dotted with several relaxing spots to unwind and enjoy the small but lovely garden and pool.

Breakfast is not included in the rates we were quoted, but likely available as well as a daily vegan buffet, which looked delicious when we popped in, such a shame we had just eaten! Obviously yoga is on offer too with three to five classes a day at 115,000 rupiah per session with multi-class discounts, and if you want the full immersion package, sign up to one of their retreats that include all meals, a bed, lessons and excursions.

If Sannyas happen to be hosting training when you wish to stay, Yoga Searcher up the road is another lovely stay-stretch-and-breath joint, but will make a greater dint in your pocket. Alternatively, the stylish rooms at Pinkcoco Hotel offer a similar feel to Sannyas for just a tad more rupiah, but add a few more mod-cons to boot. Or if your budget is bottom dollar, Sannyas chef is the manger of the friendly backpacker-style Kiki Homestay, and you’ll at least have the opportunity to try his tasty breakfasts.
