Life & Soul Magazine’s Travel Guide to Eco Spas will whet your appetite for a vacation that brings healing to holidaymakers in accommodations that work in harmony with the planet. 

1. Fivelements, Bali, Indonesia

Built on sacred grounds along the banks of the Ayung River, Fivelements, Puri Ahimsa, Bali is a healing and wellness destination deeply rooted in the philosophies and traditions of Bali, nurturing harmony among spirit, human and nature. Designed by Balinese architect Ketut Arthana with these principles in mind, this eco spa has been constructed using primarily renewable materials, mainly bamboo, like that of a traditional Balinese village.

What you get is an idyllic, luxurious eco living space that is in harmony with its surroundings. With just seven villas, each boasting private balconies with extensive views of the surrounding lush greenery, this lavish five-star hotel is ideally suited for those looking for the ultimate relaxing retreat. With decent-sized villas, Fivelements is also perfect for families in need of some healing and downtime.

Raw foodies will love the carefully prepared vegan and vegetarian menu. Healing treatments, based on ancient Balinese healing methods, are administered by native traditional healers drawing on ancient wisdom.

Treatments work to balance the body’s five elements whilst clearing negative energy from the body. Other activities including yoga, martial arts and meditation take place against the river landscape.

With a strong emphasis on maintaining the balance within its surroundings, Fivelements respects water resources by storing rainwater and using it for irrigation, and supports village waste management, tree planting and local organic farmers.
