Call us lazy, but sometimes we like to see the customers do it themselves. Mind you, creating your own lunch and dinner can be lots of fun!

Take our Caesar salad. A healthy, delicious twist on the comforting classic.

  • We present to you a small vase of freshly picked organic romaine lettuce.
  • A jar of oven roasted garlic sourdough croutons.
  • Then there’s bacon bits. Well, sort of. Our bacon comes from coconut meat. I marinate it in a secret potion, and smoke the coconut chips over green tea. I use a bit of magic at times. The result is smoky, sweet, salty goodness suitable for the most discerning veg foodies! Toss all these together in a bowl and drizzle lashings of creamy dressing over the top, enriched with coconut yoghurt and slow roasted garlic.

Bali Silent Retreat pradnya

It looks like we’re open!

  • People are finding us and booking reservations to check it out for 1 night or like Angela who booked for 20 days to finish her thesis.
  • Everyone seems to love it, love the food, love the silence, and are ever so patient as we work out the details of operation processes.
  • I’ve noticed the calm reverence all the guests have for their silence.
  • What seems to be shouting loud and clear is the respect and appreciation for their individual space . . . no one is going to be asking them, “Hi! Where are you from?”
