Pool Joglo Upon entering Naya, guests are welcomed into the heart of the retreat center – the ‘Pool Joglo’ – a community lounge created within a Javanese structure, constructed of reclaimed wood, and lovingly restored and converted into a covered outdoor space. Relax in one of the many different seating areas over food and drinks with friends or family, or simply relax with a book and a glass of fresh tropical juice made to order. The Pool Joglo is also an ideal space for parties, gatherings and workshops.
Yoga Shala Naya’s creme de la creme is a spacious, open-air 1300 sq.ft. yoga shala overlooking a river and bamboo grove. This beautiful traditional Balinese building features rich wood floors, ironwood struts, and a pitched ylang ylang roof and accommodates up to 40 – perfect for yoga classes, live music performances, dancing, Capoeira, meditation, and much more. Flickering candles, a state of the art speaker system, fireflies, birds, gekos, the sound of the river below, the distant chants of a Balinese priest, and strains of gamelon converge to make the space feel like something out of a dream. Throw in 2 new bathrooms, orbital ceiling fans, mats, blocks and bolsters for 40 people, it’s every teacher and students dream!
Ozone Swimming Pool To cool off, step into the adjoining infinity pool. The pool is cleansed by an Ozone system, which uses 90% less chlorine, giving the water a smooth, velvety texture, which is kinder and healthier for guests and less harsh on the environment.
