For those looking for a digital detox, decompression from city life, or to simply achieve overall wellbeing and balance, The Longhouse offers the perfect base from which to relax, soothe the soul and relish the stunning setting. Blending harmoniously with the lush tropical forests and hills of Jimbaran, The Longhouse is a serene destination away from the tourist traps of Bali, with uninterrupted island views. 

The Longhouse – Bar Area

Relaxation begins on arrival at the airport, with a warm welcome and short private transfer through Jimbaran’s scenic hills to The Longhouse. Once guests have lowered their pace and settled in, the recharging begins. Guests can choose from an invigorating sunrise yoga class or a calming meditation session to start one of their days at The Longhouse, and all mornings involve a dose of the artisanal Jamu and Kombucha shots – traditional herbal medicines from Indonesia which have fast become the most sought after nutrition trend of the moment. Fresh, vibrant meals using locally sourced ingredients are then served throughout the day with love, prepared by The Longhouse’s skilled kitchen team. 

The Longhouse lush gardens

To achieve balance for the mind, body and soul, The Longhouse provides a selection of relaxing spa treatments for guests to choose from throughout their retreat. From traditional Balinese to hot stone massages and foot reflexology, skilled therapists can be booked to give tailor-made treatments in The Longhouse spa. A variety of unique cultural activities are available to cleanse the soul, including an enlightening water purification ceremony, a lesson into how to make and pray with Canang, the traditional Balinese floral offerings, and a local tea and dance experience at a traditional Balinese home. In addition, the many cozy corners of the expansive Longhouse provide quiet spots for unwinding with a book in the luxurious and peaceful setting. 

Fitness room
