We named our Deluxe Cottage after two very strong beliefs in Hinduism. The first, Dharma, is an ancient concept with different meanings. For us, it means live one’s life in accordance with the law of Nature, respecting our own Truth, bringing Peace within us, and around us. The second, Gita, means “song” in Sanskrit and it is used to describe the vibrational force that created the universe.
In Bali, we have an original naming system for children that is adopted according to their order of birth. Four traditional names are used; the first born is called “Wayan”; the second is “Made”; the third is “Nyoman” and fourth is “Ketut”. In homage to the people of Bali, we have called our traditional rooms the same!
Bali is the only Hindu island of Indonesia and the Balinese are proud of this strong, unique culture in our world. In homage of this spirituality, we named our rooms after the four Balinese divinities: Rama (strength and courage), Sita (feminity), Hanoman (the monkey warrior) and Laksamana.
We love farming at Swasti. Half of our land is dedicated to growing healthy, organic food. As well as farming food, we also raise sheep and rabbits, which kindly nourish our soil in return.
With organic veggies from our garden, we strive to provide the best cuisine, focusing on achieving the right balance of nutrition and deliciousness.
Swasti means “healing” in Sanskrit. Our lush garden has a natural healing power, which we complement with our organic treatments, exclusive massages and yoga, meditation and sound healing.
We’re proud of our uniquely designed houses, which are built using 100% recycled wood from Java. Inspired by carvings created by native Indonesians over 100 years ago, we’ve rebuilt these designs with updated style and refined details.
