Frequently Asked Questions

Ayurvedic Programs

How can I book a Program at AmrtaSiddhi?

Answer: You can get in touch with us by filling in a non-binding enquiry form that is available on each of our program pages. Our Reservation Team will then get back to you ASAP with a reservation offer, either confirming your details or suggesting other options. After you have received our reservation offer, you can confirm your program booking by sending us the required deposit via PayPal or Stripe.

Please note that deposit refunds are subject to our Terms&Conditions and the outstanding amount for your program is due in full on the first day of your program. We accept Cash, Credit Card, PayPal or Stripe payments.

Can I start a Program any time or are there only specific dates that I have to start?

Answer: You can start your program at any time, provided we do have availability to accommodate you. Please send us your completed enquiry form from this website and we send you a non-binding reservation offer.

What do I need to consider if I have my own accommodation and want to sign up for a Program?

Answer: You have to consider that it is obligatory to stay on-site for a number of days and for certain programs. Here the list of programs and minimum nights required to stay at our Centre:

8 Day Ghee Detox – 6 nights

10 Day Ghee Detox – 6 nights

12 Day Pancha Karma – 9 nights

14 Day Weight Loss – 10 nights

21 Day Weight Loss – 14 nights

21 Day Pancha Karma – 10 nights

28 Day Pancha Karma – 15 nights

Programs offered on our website and not listed here have no required minimum nights stay at our Centre.

Experience has shown that having your accommodation elsewhere tends to impede on your program and diminish your program results.

Since rest is one key factor in Rejuvenation and Detox procedures, it should be clear that traveling back and forth to our Centre does interfere negatively with the program procedures. We recommend that you stay within foot-walking distance from us during your program. You will also have to consider that we cannot guarantee the delivery of food, drinks or herbal preparations, and deliveries are subject to charges.

Is it possible to add (or reduce) treatment days to (from) my Program?

Answer: Yes, this is possible within certain limitations. Please use the navigation keys “add/reduce treatment days” in our enquiry form to change the length of your program. Please note, program changes after the booking process has been completed are subject to our Terms & Conditions.

It is generally also possible to change the type of program on-site after the initial consultation with our Physician. In some cases our Physician might suggest a different program to the one a client initially has enrolled in. Program changes and program extensions are subject to availability and additional costs might be applicable. Please check our Terms & Conditions for further details.

Is there free-time during the Program to make short trips or do I need to stay at the Centre all the time?

Answer: We offer a whole range of activities at our Centre during your stay with us and these activities are carefully chosen to support the Ayurvedic treatment process and add value to your program. Free time is best spent relaxing, reflecting, reading and studying and there is no real point in seeking activities elsewhere during your program. We do not recommend you to leave our Centre for sight-seeing activities, Yoga classes in town or other activities. This would most likely have you exhausted and ultimately diminish your program results. People tend to underestimate the importance of rest during Detox and Rejuvenation procedures and the implications caused by ignoring our guidelines.

What should I do if I don’t know which Program is best for me?

Answer: We are happy to give you a call. Please go to any of our program pages on our website and fill in the enquiry form provided there. Within the form you will be able to request a call from us and specify your questions or concerns. Alternatively, you may use our Contact Form first and send us an email decribing your medical history, the main objectives you have for choosing a program at AmrtaSiddhi and the amount of time you have available. Please always send us a completed enquiry form once you are clear about the type of program you want to enroll in.

What is the difference between a Juice-based Program and a Ghee-based Program?

Answer: Juice-based programs are shorter and less intensive. They are a good alternative to our more challenging and medically complex Ghee-based Programs, especially when you do not have much time at hand and you are generally healthy. Ghee-based Programs reach deep into the body’s physiology and can affect profound changes. If you suffer from long term health problems or deep imbalances, a Ghee-based Program will most likely be better suited for you and will give you greater results.

What is the difference between a Pancha Karma Program and a Weight Loss Program?

Answer:  Both, our Weight Loss Programs and Pancha Karma Programs use traditional Ayurvedic methods to detox the body and remove deep-rooted imbalances. If your prime goal is to achieve weight loss, we do recommend to book in to one of our dedicated Weight Loss Programs because this type of program includes very specific treatments that are as such not included in our Pancha Karma Programs. If your prime focus is on Detox, disease prevention or healing a disease and not on weight loss, then we do recommend to enroll into one of our Pancha Karma Programs instead.

Do I need to bring mosquito repellent?

Answer: You may, especially if you are prone to attract mosquitos or if you are sensitive to their bites. You can also purchase a natural insect repellent from us.

What should I bring along with me when I come to start my Program?

Answer:

  • Copies of any recent medical & lab reports (x-rays, blood tests, MRI scans, etc.)
  • Medical prescriptions and list of medicines and supplements you are currently taking
  • Light and comfortable clothes
  • Flip flops
  • Prescribed medications
  • Personal toiletries
  • Rain jacket
  • Notebooks and pens
  • Books to read
  • Hat as sun protection
  • Sunglasses and sun cream

Yoga, Taiji, Meditation: Can I join these activities without prior experience?

Answer: Yes, you can and we actually encourage you to do so. All of the activities that are part of your program are carefully chosen by us and they all have their place and function within a given program. Our Instructors are well aware of the fact that we all have different abilities and limitations and their teaching reflects this. Whether you are a complete beginner or experienced practitioner: you will learn some useful skills in a safe environment.

Yoga, Taiji, Meditation: Can I join these activities even I feel discomfort in my body?

Answer: Yes, you can and we generally recommend you do so! Discomfort is common amongst people who are not moving their body regularly, who have physical or physiological imbalances or emotional challenges in their life. We believe it is very important to move from discomfort to comfort intelligently and with awareness. Our instructors are here to guide you towards better health, increased strength and flexibility. All you need to do is show up!

What kind of Yoga to you teach during the Program?

Answer: We offer Hatha Yoga Classes at our Centre, focussing on alignment, breathing and individual attention.

Since our clients tend to have different abilities and most are also in different phases of their program, we offer 2 types of Yoga classes daily, 7 days a week. The first is an early morning general Hatha Yoga class that is suitable for all those, who have finished their Detox procedure and feel strong and capable. The second class is tailored to people who are in their Detox procedure and all those, who feel not strong or fit enough to join the early morning general Hatha Yoga class.

Accommodation

Can I choose a specific room category at your Centre?

Answer: Yes, you can.

  • Our Centre offers various room categories and you can select your preferred room type in the Enquiry Form which you have to fill in when you send us a non-binding reservation enquiry. Our program prices depend on the room type you choose (or that is available for the dates you requested). The lowest price option is to stay in one of our Standard Rooms. You can see all room types on this website here under <About> and <Centre>.
  • Our Reservation Team will suggest other room types or other dates if your preferred room type is not available for your requested dates.
  • We do have a minimum nights stay policy for all ghee-based Detox Programs, Weight Loss Programs and Pancha Karma Programs.
  • You may stay in your own accommodation for all juice-based Programs if you prefer. However, we do recommend you stay with us for best results. Traveling daily back and forth from your accommodation to our Centre (for treatments, Yoga, food, Meditation, talks and other activities) often creates negative side effects that impinge on your progress and will limit your program results. Make sure to stay in close proximity to our Centre if you insist on staying outside.
Can I change my accommodation after I have done my booking?

Answer: Generally, yes. For more details, please check our Terms & Conditions.

Do your rooms have Air Conditioning?

Answer: Yes, all our accommodations have air conditioning and fans. Our Deluxe Rooms and Deluxe Bungalows also have mosquito net protection on the windows so that you can open the windows without having to worry about mosquitos entering.

Do your rooms have mosquito nets?

Answer: Our Deluxe Rooms and Deluxe Bungalows do have mosquito protection on all windows, while most of our other rooms have protection on those windows that are permanently open for airation. Our Standard Rooms, Superior Rooms and Wooden Bungalow have mosquito net protection around the beds.

Do you have rooms with twin beds?

Answer: Yes, one of our Superior Rooms, Deluxe Rooms and Deluxe Bungalows is equipped with Twin Beds. Please mention in our Enquiry Form whether you require this room feature.

Can I book a Program without booking accommodation?

Can I share a room with a friend who also joins a Program at AmrtaSiddhi?

Answer: Yes, you can. Our reservation team might point out to you that you are required under certain circumstances to book one extra night of accommodation to your program. This is due to the fact that you cannot share the same bathroom with your partner or friend during the Detox procedure. If you, for instance, both choose the same ghee-based Detox Program or the same Pancha Karma Program, we will have you start on successive days, hence the extra night.

Can I share a room with a friend who wants to join me at your Centre but does not intend to join a Program?

Answer: Yes, you can. There is a fee of US$ 20 (++) per night for an additional guest staying in your room. The fee does not include breakfast, any other services or access to the activities at our Centre.

Do you have a Pool?

Answer: Yes, we do have an Ozone Pool with a nice shady wooden deck area and some gazebos nearby for relaxing or reading. Please follow the recommendations for using the pool (listed in our In-room directory and communicated to you by our Physicians) and note that during the ghee intake part of a program, swimming is not allowed.

Bali as Tourist Destination

When is the best time to visit Bali?

Answer: This depends on what kind of climate and circumstances you prefer. We consider the best time in terms of climate are the months from the end of June until the end of October. This is Bali’s dry season. The weather is cooler, especially during the nights, and humidity is reduced to a pleasant degree.

The rainy season starts to slowly set in around December. However, due to the global climate change, this is not really fixed anymore. One can usually experience strong monsoon rains between the months of December to April and some people love these rains.

The months from March until June can be hot and humid and people who are very sensitive to these climatic conditions should consider traveling to Bali during the later months of the year.

Do I need any malaria vaccinations?

Answer: Malaria is not common on Bali and Malaria vaccinations are not mandatory. Please speak to your family doctor for more details.

What is the nearest airport?

Answer: The nearest airport is called Ngurah Rai International and it is located in Denpasar, Bali, Indonesia. The drive to our Centre in Ubud usually takes around 75 min from the airport.

Do I need a visa to enter Indonesia?

Answer: This depends on the type of passport you are holding. Passport holders from many different countries are issued a 30- Day Tourist Visa directly upon arrival to the airport in Bali. For more details, please check: https://www.bali.com/visa-on-arrival.html
