Nurturing Wellness in Bali: A Journey with Oneworld Ayurveda

In the vibrant tapestry of wellness offerings in Ubud, Bali, Oneworld Ayurveda is a leading light of holistic healing and rejuvenation. I founded Oneworld with a simple yet profound vision—to create spaces that delight the senses and nurture the soul.

Reflecting on our humble beginnings in 2000, when the spa landscape of Ubud was still in its infancy, we embarked on a path of transformation with Zen Body Holiday. With a passion for providing holistic experiences, we quickly gained recognition as the best Day Spa in Ubud and amongst the best in Bali, setting the stage for our evolution.

Driven by a deep commitment to well-being, we expanded our horizons with Zen Lifestyle, an energy resort nestled in North Bali. Here, amidst the tranquil beauty of nature, we pioneered yoga, meditation, and wellness retreats, igniting a love affair with Ayurveda that continues to thrive.

Returning to the heart of Ubud, we partnered with Anas Andrianto to launch Bali Botanica Day Spa in 2006, a sanctuary tucked away in the artistic streets of Sanggingan. As Ubud blossomed into a global hub for holistic living, alongside our Oneworld Retreats—offering 50 themed retreats annually—we witnessed the rise of Yoga Barn and the Bali Spirit Festival.

Oneworld Ayurveda emerged in 2016, inspired by a life-changing experience I had at a Panchakarma center in Sri Lanka. Situated amid the picturesque rice terraces of Tegallalang, our center provides transformative Panchakarma programs. These programs are designed to lead guests toward balance through tailored consultations, wholesome meals, detoxification, yoga, meditation, and tranquil immersion in nature. Responding to increasing demand, our second authentic Panchakarma center opened in Ubud in 2022, following the pandemic.

As the world seeks alternative paths to wellness, Ayurveda emerges as a timeless beacon of ancient wisdom. In May 2024, Bali Botanica Day Spa evolves into Bali Botanica by Oneworld Ayurveda, pioneering the introduction of five distinct Ayurvedic programs. Rooted in tradition yet tailored for modern living, these programs offer consultations with Ayurvedic physicians, daily treatments, wholesome meals, online yoga, and nourishing recipes.

At Oneworld Ayurveda, we embrace the journey of self-discovery with open arms, guiding guests toward a deeper understanding of their unique constitution and the path to vibrant health. As Ubud continues to evolve as a healing sanctuary, we stand proud to be part of a movement that nurtures the body, mind, and spirit, offering a timeless path to balance and well-being. Join us on this extraordinary journey of transformation and renewal.
