Located on an elevated position high on Sukhavati’s uppermost level, Amitabha is a luxury villa boasting beautiful panoramic views of the entire property. On clear mornings guests may take breakfast by their own private relaxation gazebo under the watchful gaze of Mount Batukaru in Bali’s northwest. Amitabha also contains a private salt-water cool pool and tanning deck.
Located on Sukhavati’s lower level by the Penet River, this very private luxury villa is surrounded by jungle and towering Taap trees and lies within one of the property’s highest energy points. Maitreya also contains a private open-air lounging area, salt-water cool pool and relaxing tanning deck.
Located next to Sukhavati Retreat’s yoga and meditation bale, White Tara is a deluxe villa backing onto the retreat's main rock cliff face. Guests in this villa will enjoy a massage in the total privacy of their own outdoor bathroom or indulge in a delicious breakfast on a private balcony overlooking gardens and pristine jungle.
Centrally located directly behind the retreat’s main salt-water swimming pool, Vajrapani is a deluxe villa situated on a slightly elevated position backing onto the property’s main rock cliff face. Like White Tara and Samantabhadra, this villa boasts a uniquely landscaped private outdoor bathroom.
Villa Samantabhadra is a deluxe villa located next to Vajrapani and directly behind Manjushri on Sukhavati Retreat’s middle level. Like those two villas, it boasts a large outdoor bathroom with a shower built into the property’s main rock cliff face. A statue of a water-carrying Balinese maiden - hand carved into the cliff - offers the soothing sounds of running water to guests in this villa.
Manjushri is a slightly smaller standard villa located directly next to the retreat’s main swimming pool. It boasts beautiful views of the virgin jungle across the Penet River. Guests staying in Manjushri will also find outdoor relaxation space just meters away at Sukhavati’s main bale next to the pavilion. Manjushri’s indoor bathroom is both luxurious and well appointed.
