At Shunyata Villas, our story is one of love, adventure, and a deep commitment to preserving the beauty of nature. Our journey began when the founders Maria and Jürgen had their honeymoon in Bali. At that time, the village where Shunyata Resort now stands had no access to electricity, and the only inhabitants were two charming goats, which they named Bella and Amore.

Eco luxury resort

What captured our hearts was the breathtaking view, the symphony of natural sounds, and the pure, revitalizing air that enveloped this enchanting place. It was a connection that went far beyond a mere visit: It was a profound calling.

Five years later, inspired by this encounter, we embarked on the journey of a lifetime, creating Shunyata Villas. The impact of this project went far beyond the resort. The village now enjoys the benefits of electricity and the progress that comes with it.

At this place of peace and happiness we only source the freshest, organic, and locally produced ingredients for our cuisine, guaranteeing a dining experience that is not only exceptional but also respectful to the environment. Nestled among the lush greenery and overlooking the picturesque landscape, Shunyata Villas quickly became a heaven for guests all over the world seeking relaxation, romantic getaways, and the chance to recharge their batteries amidst nature's embrace.

We invite you to reconnect with nature, revel in the luxury of simplicity, and find inner peace in the embrace of the natural world. Welcome to Shunyata Villas, where heritage, nature, and luxury combine to create an unforgettable experience for you, our valued guests.

We're proud to partner directly with local farms, bringing their finest produce straight to your plate.

From sustainable technologies to community partnerships, each step we take now is a promise to nurture a greener, brighter, and more inclusive world ahead.

Our dedication to eco-conscious luxury has been honored with the prestigious "Best Eco Resort Award".

Our resort thrives on local connections—farmers bring flavors to your plate, artists infuse spaces with creativity, and artisans weave heritage into every corner.

Effluent's renewal: bio-septic tanks flourish with oxygen, fusing with rainwater. Submersible pumps rejuvenate greenery above and below.

Silent gas dryers and hushed energy-efficient devices resonate our dedication. From fridges to air conditioning, all harmonize with top-tier energy standards.


Panorama restaurant

Our restaurant is renowned for gourmet cuisine in Bali, known for its commitment to using only natural ingredients to preserve authentic flavors. We focus on top-quality ingredients, organic products from our garden, local farmers, fishermen, and markets. Our chefs blend local and seasonal ingredients to create modern interpretations of traditional dishes, infusing each one with love and passion for a delightful culinary experience.

Every morning you can enjoy an à la carte breakfast served at our restaurant or in your pool villa. Our daily 3-couse menu also includes delicious vegetarian and vegan delights. We are happy to consider food intolerances and individual requests



The villagers of Seraya believe that the high vibrational energy of the place, the spiritual temple next to the villas, volcanic mountains and the Indian Ocean have a transformational and healing impact on the body, mind and soul. Inspired by the wisdom and knowledge of ancient cultures we have designed a holistic wellness offer that consists of crystal frequency therapy, delightful massages and nourishing spa treatments.

Our aim is to co-create a trusting connection and gently guide you through a personalized wellness program. It is a gradual discovery process that naturally unfolds ­- one where you will experience greater harmony of body, mind and soul through the energies and elements that lead to health and wellbeing. We invite you to enjoy a journey of pure joy, relaxation and peace of mind.



Impressive volcanos, mystic temples, hidden waterfalls, lush green rice terraces, stunning beaches, a colorful underwater world… Bali is like a great treasure full of magical experiences. Away from the hustle and bustle of crowded tourist areas, Shunyata Villas Bali is the perfect starting point for immersing into the rich culture and beautiful scenery of the east coast.

What about an authentic Balinese cooking class or a meditation with a healer at our temple? Based on the feedback of our guests we have designed a number of experiences that allow you to discover the authentic Bali and collect memories that last a lifetime. Just let us know what excites you and we will find some recommendations for you.

The first steps

Shunyata Villas Bali is based on a vision that crossed our path more than two decades ago. Drawn by the spirit of the ocean we decided to leave Germany and move to Sri Lanka where we found a beautiful spot at the coast of the Indian Ocean. From the very first moment we felt that this place is meant to be for healing and regeneration. In 2004 we opened there our Ayurvedic Resort Shunyata Villa, which still welcomes guests from all around the world.

Only few years later our second visionary project manifested in Bali. When we had our honeymoon and traveled around the island of god we discovered a place of high vibrant energy, still untouched and embedded in an authentic Balinese village - Seraya. The pure energy of the ocean in the south, the sunrise at the ancient ritual place and the majestic volcano Mount Agung radiate peace, silence and eternity - the perfect place for our second resort - Shunyata Villas Bali, which we joyfully opened in 2011. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city and mass tourism, Shunyata Villas Bali offers a perfect place to relax, lean back and soak up the peace of nature.

We are looking forward to welcome you soon at Shunyata Villas Bali.
