“La Shamiana Dharamshala – Inn for Spiritual Travelers” is the residential quarters in Anand Ashram Ubud.
Ashram provides a peaceful environment and simplicity that is conducive for Self-Discovery and Empowerment, with daily activities of Meditation and Yoga. It's perfect place for guests who genuinely seek a spiritual life or simply want to have a personal retreat and quiet time for themselves.
As such, Ashram may not be a suitable place for those looking for accommodation alone.
The minimum age to stay in the ashram is 12 years old. We regret that at present we do not have special facilities for the disable or sick persons. We, therefore, expect all visitors to be in fit condition, physically, as well as mentally/emotionally.
Located 3 km from Ubud Center, it will take 45 minutes by walking and less than 5 minutes by scooter, therefore it's highly suggested to rent a scooter or use taxi.
All guests are free to use the Meditation facility and Chapel of Mother Goddess for personal spiritual practices, use of the Healing Pool, garden area, and parking for motorbike but please adhere to the timing of public usage. Kitchen is opened for staff only.
The room has 2 beds. If you are traveling alone, you will occupy the room for yourself.
Staying at Anand Ashram was a treat. Beautiful people. Gorgeous location. Calm, peaceful and delicious breakfasts. Thanks so much.
My stay at Anand Ashram was amazing, delightful, blissful, peaceful and comforting. Herny was extremely helpful with all of my questions and requests and she was a wonderful person to be in the presence of.
Yuda (Sp?) cooked delicious breakfasts and had a great sense of humor. The place itself was surrounded by rice fields in a very quite and peaceful part of Ubud. I rented a scooter to get in and out of town for about $5AUD per day. The accommodation was very clean and well looked after. The free meditation and yoga sessions were also great. There was no pressure to do a certain amount of anything and it was left entirely up to me to decide when and how I would engage in those activities.
There are a few house rules, but mostly they are what I would consider 'common sense' or to be expected and respected when staying at an Ashram.
I highly recommend staying at Anand Ashram if you are looking for a peaceful, introspective space to enjoy Ubud. I would not recommend it if you want to stay out very late or are interested in just a cheap place to stay while you party in Ubud.
We were so happy to have stayed there for our first 10 days in Ubud! We could not have found a better place to start our journey here.. so calm, serene and quiet offering meditations, yoga and even simple but delicious meals at such great rates! Herny and Ude were so kind and helped us with whatever we needed during our stay. We loved morning meditations and ceremony as well as the evening meditations. Now after having stayed some place else for a few weeks, we even more appreciate our calm and peaceful stay there and can't wait to go back! Eunjung and Yves
