Our place The shala Bali and our beautiful guest rooms and villas are unique in that they are walk in only, Its only a 2 minute not a 10 minute walk but this is our haven. Our little green ego village that makes our place special and sets it apart from all others. Its quiet and serene because no motor vehicles are allowed in. We describe in our literature that you can expect to see , lizards, frogs , chickens and sometimes snakes. Snakes in Bali are non aggressive, I walk that path almost every night in the dark and it is perfectly lite and safe naturally you use a torch and be observant. There is always a trade off for peace and serenity. Perhaps the fact that our guests had a baby with them made them overly sensitive. We try so hard to live in the natural environment and not abuse it , by killing or eating any animals. Our policy is to live in harmony with all creatures. Most of our guests appreciate this and we have many return guests because of our unique philosophy . Be in harmony with all sentient beings, plants , animals and peoples.
