Maya Ubud’s a Spiritual Journey: an Enchanting, Healing, Loving Experience

Maya Ubud Resort & Spa’s special eight day package: A Spiritual Journey, has been an exceptional experience for its participants. See what they say about it.

Since the beginning of the year when first introduced, demand for this package has seen a steady increase by those wishing to discover the real essence of the life of the Balinese, and experience their unique culture and spirituality.

The Spiritual Journey package is a unique package that introduces and assists participants to better understand the spiritual aspects of Balinese life and customs, whilst creating a rejuvenating and healing experience for participants. The Spiritual Journey commences with a warm welcome from our caring staff, each one allocated to meet the needs of clients to ensure their stay is a memorable and enlightening one.

Each enlightening day commences with morning yoga and meditation sessions in a picturesque setting, followed on different days by exploring nearby temples and visiting a traditional Balinese healer (Balian), or even a spiritual consultation and priestly blessing. Another option is to learn with village ladies the art of making traditional temple offerings as our guide carefully explains the meaning of the offerings, which can later be presented during the village temple visit. On another morning clients will be taken for a walk to a traditional village to be greeted by local village people and experience how they start a typical day. Throughout the Spiritual Journey program, the designated resort guide will share with participants various aspects of the philosophy of the Balinese people, which will enlighten and help them better understand the unique practical, cultural and spiritual essence of Balinese life.

Each day is planned to ensure a relaxed pace with plenty of time in between scheduled activities to also enjoy free time . . . such as relaxing by one of the beautiful pools, taking the free shuttle bus to Ubud market, or simply being spoilt with one of several (all inclusive) spa pampering treatments that awaits you in the legendary riverside Spa at Maya.

Those who have participated in and experienced the Spiritual Journey package write only heartfelt comments following their stay.

“To say that participating in the Spiritual Journey program has been profound is an extreme understatement. In actual fact it is very hard to encapsulate in words the most blessed, healing, and magical, experience that I’ve had. From my day of arrival, I’ve been made to feel very special and this has been very soothing to my soul and healing for my heart… I truly am blessed!” said Ms Mary Rutledge ( at the end of her stay with Maya Ubud early last month, “I believe that this package is too important for people not to know about it,” she continued.

Ms Suzanne Hart of Australia ( summarized her experience and that of her clients by saying; “The Balinese blessing ceremony was another highlight. Wayan our personal resort guide did such a great job of explaining the ceremony and guiding us through it. The ladies loved it!”

Ubud has always had strong spiritual healing elements related to the confluence of the two sacred rivers, the Oos and the Pakusera and an abundance of natural healing plants and herbs that thrive in the area, as well as the numerous balians (natural healers) that practice here, not to mention its ancient temples, revered priests and mystics.

Ubud is truly a place where one feels spiritually inspired, revitalized and loved.
