maoMeno is located on the island of Gili Meno, Indonesia, just a short boat ride from the east coast off the island of Bali. It’s 15 square kilometers of land are home to about 500 residents and no cars or motorbikes making it one of the perfect places for a 200hr yoga training. The property is surrounded by green fields and palm trees, and is nestled just minutes away from pristine white sand beaches and sparkling turquoise water. The decor is peaceful, clean and simple with natural textures of rustic wood, smooth bamboo, and ylang ylang woven roofs. All houses are individually crafted and each offer their own unique expression to suit your tailored “glamping” experience. The open air yoga shala offers breezy practices on wise wood floors.
The easiest way to access the Gili Islands from Bali is through one of the fast boat companies offering daily transfers from Padang Bai (East Bali). Jessica Kamell recommends Eka Jaya Fast Boat which offers an inclusive shuttle service from Kuta, Seminyak, and Ubud. Cost is approximately USD 45. Another option is to fly to the Lombok International Airport. From there you can get a drive 2 hours north to Bangsal where the local boats depart to the Gilis. Fast boats leave to Meno hourly.
