AT THE TOUCH OF LOVE, EVERYONE BECOMES A POET
Guests rooms are all contemporary and eco-friendly in design with natural reclaimed FCS-certified timbers, high ceilings, VOC-free paint, private bathrooms, balconies and wonderful ocean and/or garden views. All rooms are cleaned with natural, chemical-free products made on-site by our herbalist. We use solar powered radiant heat, sustainable cooling systems, and energetic healing to cleanse and enhance the energies of the space for each person’s visit.
Mattresses are natural latex and our bedding is hypo-allergenic & dust mite free. We have sourced the very best organic sheets, towels and robes so you can feel completely safe knowing we have gone to extensive lengths to provide you with a safe & healing environment.
Shampoos, conditioners and soaps are also natural, toxin-free and compatible with our grey water system where all bath and shower water is recycled for use in our garden. In order to facilitate a feeling of complete retreat where you can be totally at peace and “let go,” we do not offer in-room phones or television.
imaginative and playful
Nestled off the main temple house, this delightful 186-square-foot corner room includes ocean and garden vistas, a double bed, garden courtyard and commissioned painting of the Aja gardens, with fairy-size surprises hidden throughout the suite. At its entrance two antique, hand-carved stone ‘yakshis’ guard the space, often placed at the entrance of Buddhist temples for protection. Relevant books and 10 fairies hanging in a circle complete A Fairy’s Wing.
cozy + contemplative
This poetically cozy, 274-square-foot garden respite is nestled amongst the roses, with a stunning view of the surrounding gardens and Santa Monica mountains. It features a sunken bath, private patio and a library of poetic verse.
inspiring & empowering
This 290-square-foot secluded room features a spacious open-plan design, outstanding treetop-level garden views, in-room sofa, and a private balcony patio with double chaise recliner. The suite is decorated with goddess paintings hand-collected from Nepal. A Balinese lava rock goddess statue guards the entry way, along with the Tulsi plant, (considered in India to be ‘the Queen of herbs’ and one of the most powerful plants for health and spirituality). The room includes relevant books, ancient symbols honoring the feminine, and one of the most auspicious symbols of the goddess, a ‘sri yantra,’ that rests under the bed.
The largest suite, this spacious 480-square-foot space offers a wood-burning fireplace and views from the bathroom over the meandering chakra gardens. With direct access to the house, this room comes complete with sofa, separate sunken bath and a rainforest shower. The Dharma Cave is accented with auspicious wooden carved symbols and thankas hand-painted by monastics in Nepal and Tibet. A symbol of peace under the bed helps illuminate sleep.
a writers nook
This 532-square-foot room adjoins onto the garden with its own private garden deck. Nestled away from the Temple House, the Garden Grotto is private and spacious. This room is equipped with a queen bed, writing desk, private courtyard, and spacious bathroom with sunken tub and rainforest shower. It is excellent for quiet reflection, garden inspiration and/or for finishing your book or screen play.
spacious and expansive
Based on indigenous wisdom, this room houses weavings from Peru by shamans of the Shipibo tribe in the Amazon basin. Dreamweaver catchers from Peru and the Native American tradition, along with bark paintings from indigenous Aboriginal tribes of the Australian outback accent the space. A fresh tray of salt with a crystal is left under the bed during each guest’s stay, an ancient technique believed to remove negative energies. Each 375-square-foot room includes a sunken bath and separate rainforest shower, rear balcony with serene garden and treetop views, and a front-facing balcony seating area surrounded in mountain tree canopies.
