La Shamiana Dharamshala

Inn for Spiritual Travelers

“La Shamiana Dharamshala – Inn for Spiritual Travelers” is the residential quarter in Anand Ashram Ubud with facilities for Meditation, Yoga, Spiritual Studies etc. The Ashram should not be looked upon as a hotel or guest-house. Our endeavor is to offer services to Spiritual Travelers and Genuine Seekers. As such, Ashram may not be a suitable place for those looking for accommodation alone.

To help cover the cost of maintaining this beautiful Ashram, we entirely depend upon your generous support and offering. It is in this context that we are often asked to indicate an amount that one can use as a guide, which is estimated at US$ 20 – 30 (Rp 280,000 – 420,000) per night.
