If you're in need of a little me-time or an emotional tune-up, this holistic healing retreat has your inner wellbeing at heart.
Much more than a spa, this luxurious destination is perched on the banks of the sacred river Ayung and is enveloped by the lush green forest and rice fields of Ubud, Bali.
Part of the setting for Eat, Pray, Love - Ubud is the centre for art and spirituality in Bali and is a mecca for yoga lovers and organic food addicts alike. The area is filled with temples, panoramic green vistas and ancient history - making it the perfect place for a personal journey.
Tucked away from the town, Fivelements is founded on Balinese healing traditions. Guests wake up to a daily-guided meditation and follow programmes of yoga, water therapy, and deep massage with expert healers.
The aim is to balance your Chakras and create inner harmony, with the peace and quiet of the resort giving you time to truly relax.
After a day of contemplation, spend your evenings hidden away in your luxurious private lodge. Nestled on the bank of the river, the grass-roofed suites open out onto private terraces overlooking waterfalls and green forest.
The rooms have the feeling of an isolated natural sanctuary, but with all the mod cons and comfort of a five star resort.
Each suite has it's own outdoor stone bath perched above the water, which can be filled with natural goodies such as limes, ginger, orange and lemongrass - perfect for some pure indulgence.
The open air fine dining restaurant believes food to play a key part in the rejuvenation of the body - and offers exquisite vegan and raw food that will convert even the hardest of carnivores.
Whether you need some time by yourself, or want to hide away on honeymoon - the privacy, luxury and spirituality of this resort is a real treat for all the senses and you are guaranteed to leave a little bit calmer, and with a little more head space.
For 3-Night retreats, including riverside suite, full board and a range of daily treatments, prices start at $1600 per person. For more information and bookings, visit fivelements.org
