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 guesthouse. 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 USD 20  – 30 (IDR 280,000 – 420,000) per night.


Kitchen is not available.


Oriental vegetarian breakfast may contain dairy products such as milk, butter, and cheese. Lunch is mostly Indonesian vegetarian dishes. We believe in the Yogic Principle of Moderation in all, including in the diet.

We regret that at present we are not able to cater for special dietary needs.


The Ashram is 3 kilometers away from Ubud Center (45 minutes walking or 5 minutes by scooter/car).

Warungs (traditional cafes) for dinner are available and can be found within 5 minutes walking distance.

Nearest convenient store is in Ubud Center.
