Ashrams have been made popular by “Eat, Pray, Love.” While Julia Roberts had to go to India for an ashram, Bali has a traditional one in Ubud. Facilities in Anand Ashram are basic.
The simplicity of it all will allow you to be alone with yourself, diving deep into meditation and a truly spiritual experience. Guests also contribute to cooking and gardening to keep the ashram clean and welcoming for travellers and pilgrims alike.
