All that we are is the result of what we have thought
Aja Malibu is an intimate boutique style ‘home with a heart’ offering world-class facilities for the health and spiritual-seeking connoisseur.
On arrival you’ll find a plethora of world-class amenities including a full-service living foods kitchen and apothecary for health and nutrition workshops, oxygenated and ozonized water swimming pool, seven chakra-themed gardens, a crystal-infused spa with far infrared sauna and jacuzzi, library, meditation and sound healing room, and of course the peace and serenity of a luxury rejuvenation retreat.
At an elevation of 2100 feet above sea level, we enjoy a true Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers (70–90 degrees F.) in May through October, and relatively cool, wet winters (40–70 degrees F.) in November through April. Nights are usually cool throughout the year, so you should be prepared with layered clothing in any season.
Low-lying clouds and fog can occur in all months of the year but are most common from May through August. This “marine layer,” which creates cool, overcast, misty mornings, generally burns off by 10-11 AM. To see current weather conditions and forecast, click HERE.

Aja Malibu is an organic, biodynamic and holistic retreat center. We are on a greywater system; all water is recycled for use in our fruit, vegetable, and edible flower gardens. Please do not bring any toxic products or materials. If you wish to bring personal hygiene products, please try to bring all natural, organic and unscented. To assist in releasing toxins from the body, the use of sunscreen is not recommended during your stay. In consideration of all guests and staff, please do not wear scented personal care products during your stay.
Please be aware that Aja Malibu is located on mountainous terrain, including winding stone paths throughout the property. Be sure to pack appropriate footwear. The Santa Monica Mountains are home to an eco-system of diverse plants and wildlife. You could possibly encounter snakes, lizards, hawks, owls, squirrels, rabbits, mice, coyotes, mountain lions, bobcats, foxes, deer, spiders, bees, wasps and other insects.
At Aja Malibu, we are dogma free. We support your own journey. We honor and respect all belief systems, yet do not prescribe to any one religion or path. As the great Sufi poet Rumi said, “There are a million ways to kiss the ground”. As you explore the house and gardens at Aja, you will notice artifacts, relics, statues, and adornments. These sacred objects, symbols and writings offer insight from different theologies and mystery teachings and are some of the many pathways to explore the great questions of who and what we are.
