Om Shanti is a property with 4 ocean-view cottage style rooms nestled on the hillside of Amed in East Bali. The main Om Shanti Cottage is a large stand-alone building and suitable for up to 4 persons; a separate building holds 3 smaller Cottages.
This listing is for the main Om Shanti Cottage, a stand-alone building with a natural alang-alang roof, large yoga deck and beautiful outdoor garden shower. Situated away from the busyness of crowded tourist destinations, the main Cottage at Om Shanti provides a haven for those who desire time on their own to relax and enjoy the spiritual side of Bali. You will be transported into the sounds, colours and shapes of nature, helping you feel more at one with yourself.
The other building on the property (also with grass roof) is lower on the hill and holds 2 upper cottages and 1 lower cottage, all with nice balconies and views. These are rented separately and have their own listings.
The main Om Shanti cottage is large, giving you a feeling of spaciousness. You are the sole guests of this building.The master bedroom joins the deck through sliding glass doors. Fully air-conditioned with a king size 4 poster bed, you can lie in bed in the morning and watch the sunrise. An ensuite toilet and basin is off the bedroom and another door leads to the large outdoor garden shower with hot/cold water. Enjoy showering under the starry night sky or during daylight with views to the ocean.
A 6 metre by 6 metre covered timber deck hangs over the gardens and provides views out to the Bali Sea. Perfect for doing yoga or just relaxing or reading a book.
The Mezzanine: A set of stairs leads from the large deck to a mezzanine floor with 2 large single mattresses (email hidden) that fits over both. This area is open-air and may not be suitable for young children due to the steep steps leading up to it. The mezannine can accommodate 2 older children/young adults. Please view the photos before deciding to book if you have children.
At one end of the mezzanine floor is a large triangular window with a desk that looks out to the ocean and surrounding hills. The area is perfect for meditation, reading and computer work.
A second toilet and smaller outdoor shower are situated off the large deck.
Om Shanti Main Cottage sits high on the hillside and there are many stairs to climb to get to it....you will be rewarded with the expansive sea views.
Our new Lotus Spa offers relaxing and nurturing warm stone, aromotherapy and traditional massages as well as pedicures, manicures and facials.

The Amed coastline is fringed by coral reef, making this a wonderful place for snorkelling and scuba diving. The calm bays are perfect for swimming.
Only 300 metres North, along the road is Jemeluk Bay, one of the nicest spots for swimming & snorkelling. Stop at the top of the hill for a view of Mount Agung and the coral reef through the clear waters of the Bay. At the bottom of the hill, turn into the driveway of Blue Star and Villa Coral. You can leave your belongings with the staff at Blue Star while you go into the water. Snorkel close to shore on the flat coral or venture out to the headland for some spectacular “bommies” and large schools of fish. Have lunch at Blue Star Café right on the beach.
Across the road from Om Shanti you will find a pathway to the rocky shoreline of Bunutan Beach. Just offshore is the reef, which stretches a kilometre, so you can swim for an hour or more and see a variety of different coral formations and types of fish, with many lovely surprises along the way
There are many attractions within a short drive of Om Shanti: Tirta Gangga Water Palace, Lempuyang Mountain and Temple, Besakih Temple, and Mempeh Waterfall. Also, you can go fishing with a local fisherman or go on a trek in the hills behind Om Shanti with a local woman to her family home. You will not have time to do everything you want to!
Om Shanti has full time staff on hand for all of your needs.

We were lucky to spend New Year at Om shanti and are so pleased we did? Om shanti is a lovely retreat where I practised yoga on a daily basis with a local yoga teacher. It's in a great position with local warungs in walking distance serving really good food. Iluh took great care of us and provided hot water for coffee and tea every morning and cooked a lovely breakfast every morning for us.
It's great snorkelling near by and a lovely drive to Amed through the paddy fields.
We will be back to Om shanti in the future I am sure.
Charming place. Lovely people. Beautiful location. Well placed away from the crowds but close enough if you want them. Sincere, friendly and very helpful owner went out of her way to provide additional support and personalised experience for us and our situation.
