About Fivelements, Puri Ahimsa
In true Balinese style, Fivelements, Puri Ahimsa, awarded 2011 Destination of the Year and 2012 Eco-Spa of the Year at the AsiaSpa Awards, reflects the harmony of its surroundings and offers a sense of enchantment and renewal along the revered Ayung River, just 30 minutes from Ubud. An eco-architectural design aesthetic complements the uncomplicated beauty of the enveloping forested hillside and cascading waterfalls, and several of this healing-based sanctuary’s programming and activities — yoga, martial arts, meditation, blessing ceremonies and more — take place against the river landscape.
Guests will blossom from spa rituals rich in tradition, using nature’s elements and village remedies, and retire to one of seven pavilion-housed suites, each with a private balcony and ensuite garden bathrooms. Carefully prepared vegetarian and vegan cuisine enhances the revitalizing experience.

The spa at Fivelements embraces its Balinese culture and eco-conscious philosophy, immersing guests in an authentic, holistic spa experience. Nourishing spa services use organic plant-based wild extracts — petals, harvested flowers, spices and herbs — freshly garden picked and prepared prior to treatment using ancient usadha herbal recipes in the spa’s laboratorium.
Spiritual respite stems from honored traditions like massage, energy healing, hydrotherapy, reflexology, skincare, body treatments and hair and nailcare, which can be taken in riverside treatment rooms or the beauty sanctuary area. Offerings include watsu massage and healing dance aquatic bodywork, performed in therapy and large lap pools, each outfitted with massage jets, underwater music and chromatherapy lighting.

Facilities & Amenities
In addition to à la carte spa services, Fivelements features the signature three- to 21-night Panca Mahabhuta healing retreat, devoted to regeneration, replenishment and realignment, and the one- to five-day personalized Healing Journeys, where paths can lead guests to a hidden cave temple with a Balinese priest or anthropologist or on a nature trek through Bali’s rainforest to rediscover herbs with a Balinese healing therapist.
Guests are welcome to participate in the Sacred Arts program guided by specialists in three Mandala meeting rooms. Ranging from yoga and chakra balancing to martial arts and vibrational healing music, these healing activities can be taken individually or within a group. Sacred Spaces carved throughout the property, such as the Padma Sana temple and Agni Hotra fire purification setting, allow visitors to achieve a meditative harmony among body, mind and soul.
Rooms & Dining
Cocooned amidst sloping forest-peaked hills and the quiet strength of the Ayung River, guest accommodations center around the concept of harmony. The exclusive suites, housed in standalone grass-roofed pavilions and christened after the five elements, combine the simplicity of nature with the magical allure of Bali. Swirling designs reminiscent of the river and organic leaves blend with timber floors and classic “Songket” textiles, while delicate white curtains and verandas offer picturesque views. Verdant gardens and masonry stone walls envelop indoor/outdoor bathrooms, while bamboo shelters open-air, stone-built bathtubs. Amenities like iPod docking stations, Wi-Fi Internet access and customized lighting, symbolizing the second colors of the chakras, provide a touch of modernity.
Guests will savor “healing cuisine,” rich in plant-based dishes and raw vegan fare in an equally inspired setting. Bamboo architecture and a thatched roof in the shape of a banana leaf, a symbol of food in Balinese, give the design of the Sakti Dining Room a warm, indigenous feel, while the flowing Ayung River on one side and a lotus pond on the other help enhance the relaxed setting.
