Living foods provide life force. Fundamental to personal health and a healthy planet, they support natural healing through cleansing to help you reach your highest potential. By integrating raw living foods into your daily life, you can look forward to wellness, greater energy and mental clarity, a positive outlook on life and spiritual awakening.

Living or raw foods are highly rejuvenating. Plant-based foods in their original, un-heated (uncooked) state are considered raw and alive. They include fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, seaweed and fresh juices. When prepared uncooked or in a special dehydrating food dryer at less than 48 °C / 118°F , they retain the vital life force nutrients (vitamins, minerals, amino acids, oxygen) and living enzymes required to digest food, repair cellular damage and create billions of healthy new cells every day.

Raw foods provide the maximum amount of energy with minimal bodily effort, and have been proven to help treat degenerative conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer. These nutrient-rich foods are also effective in treating allergies, digestive disorders, weak immune systems, high cholesterol, obesity and weight problems, as well as various mental, emotional and skin disorders.

You are to experience nature’s finest healing cuisine at Fivelements’ Sakti Dining Room, prepared by an expert team of devoted chefs.

Along the southern coastline, you can find popular beaches and surf spots such as Kuta, Seminyak and Uluwatu. As you venture in land, you’ll discover Ubud, which is the gem for yoga and spiritual practice. Born to stardom by the bestselling book Eat, Pray Love, Ubud is home to many yoga centers, healthy restaurants, cafes and streets of local shops. The soft temple bells encapsulate Ubud’s magic with historic temples built on almost every street corner. Spend a few days in Ubud to appreciate it properly. It's one of those places where days can become weeks and weeks become months. If you’re here, don’t forget to visit the infamous Monkey Forest.

There are international flights daily to Depensar International airport from all over the world.
