Seafood is also a staple, with fresh catches grilled to perfection, often accompanied by 'Sambal Matah' - a zesty lemongrass and chili salsa.

At the heart of The Floating Leaf's culinary journey stands their esteemed chef, dedicated to guiding you through Bali's rich culinary traditions. Preparing three meticulously crafted meals daily, you will be introduced to authentic dishes such as 'Bebek Betutu' (slow-roasted duck), 'Sate Lilit' (spiced minced meat skewers), and the refreshing 'Salad Plecing Kangkung' (water spinach salad).

Healing Your Mind, Body, and Spirit...

Bali, often referred to as the "Island of the Gods," is a paradise that deeply resonates with those in search of serenity, authenticity, and a profound connection to nature. For the male nudist, it presents a golden opportunity to not just disrobe from clothing but to strip away life's stresses and embrace an environment that rejuvenates the mind, body, and spirit.


Imagine beginning your day with a gentle sunrise yoga session on the panoramic pavilion. As the first rays of dawn kiss your bare skin, you feel the harmony between man and nature. The gentle stretches and deep breaths, complemented by uninterrupted views of the verdant rice fields, sacred Mount Agung, and the vast Indian Ocean, encourage a sense of boundless freedom. It's an experience of being in the moment, of truly inhabiting one's body without judgment or reservation.


After your session, you could indulge in a therapeutic massage at the spa, where traditional Balinese healing techniques are used to knead away the knots of tension. Here, amidst the soothing sounds of nature and the expert hands of the masseuse, you're reminded of the simple joys of tactile sensation – the feel of fresh linens, the coolness of natural stones, the touch of skilled fingers on bare skin.


Evenings at Floating Leaf might find you at a cultural engagement event, perhaps a traditional Balinese cooking class. As you laugh, learn, and cook, the organic ingredients tell tales of the fertile Balinese soil, and the delicious meals you create become metaphors for the island's rich tapestry of experiences.


And of course, there’s the liberating allure of Floating Leaf’s facilities tailored for the male nudist community. Step into rooms designed for organic luxury, where indoor-outdoor garden bathrooms allow you to shower under the open sky. The healing pool beckons, offering meditative moments as you float and contemplate the interplay of sunlight, water, and skin.

Purification Ceremony and Rituals at Sacred Water Temple (Included)

Highly recommended as it’s a great insight into the mystical and deeply spiritual Balinese way of life.

A purification ceremony or Melukat ritual is a traditional spiritual cleansing ritual and part of the Manusa Yadnya (Balinese Hindu life event progression). Its purpose is to purify a human body and soul. It is said to wash away turmoil and sickness acquired from negative karma in both this life and past lives.

The purification ceremony can be held at Tirta Empul Water Temple. We will serve breakfast at 6 AM for this day and we will depart to the Water Temple at 6:30 AM.

After the Purification Ceremony, we can visit a coffee plantation to sample special teas and coffees including the world's most expensive coffee, Kopi Luwak (optional), and a traditional painting village and Balinese compound (optional).

Return time will be around 1 or 2 PM for Lunch.

Guests can also choose to be dropped off in Ubud to tour the sites, shopping, and even nightlife. Return time will be around 1 or 2 PM for Lunch (for those who choose not to include Ubud).

Secret Waterfall and Temple Tour

If you had just one day in Bali, this is the tour we would suggest most.

Start the day with a scenic drive up into  Bali’s Central Highlands with epic viewpoints, lakes, and traditional villages. First stop is one of the most iconic temples in all of Bali, the 11 tiered temple of Pura Ulun Danu that seems to float on Lake Batur. Then depart for Bali’s very best and most impressive waterfalls. We call them the “Secret Falls” as many other falls in Bali are well known and can be crowded, but these are the most majestic falls and we usually have them all to ourselves.

There are actually 2 sets or three waterfalls close to each other and you and your guests can swim in the lagoons, get massaged by the falls, and even find natural waterslides. You can choose to have your lunch or a yoga class in the bale near the falls. A moderate level of fitness is required but it is not overly strenuous.


Offering Making Class (included)

This class is included at no charge with Purification Ceremony and Rituals at Sacred Water Temple. 

Work with our staff to learn the power, symbolism, and purpose of these ubiquitous spiritual artworks found all over Bali. In a hands on workshop, learn to create your very own all natural flower offering which you can use in your purification ceremony, a ritual of your own, or to have in your room with you as a reminder of the mystical spirituality found on the Island of the Gods. The class runs for 30-60 minutes depending on the size of the group and how many questions they may have. Its all up to you!

There are several types of Balinese offerings or banten, however the most common is canang sari, the daily offerings that is given by all the Balinese people to the God “Ida Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa” and a supplication to the lower spirits that they do not disturb the living. Learn how to arrange the offerings and know the symbolism of the colors and the meaning of the offerings.

If this workshop is part of the purification ceremony, the offering making class should be the day before temple purification because we will use the offering that we will create.

Himalayan Sound Bath (Group Session) (Included)

You are your OWN healer and guru. All you seek lays within you.

The instructor will help set you into your purest natural vibration, relax your brainwaves and set you into a deep meditative state of mind. To help you reconnect to the divine source, and therefore to your “higher self”. By setting you back into your natural vibrational, she try to build a bridge to yourself. From this place of awareness, you will be able to make a change to the positive and to heal yourself.

What is Sound Healing?

Sound healing is an ancient technique used to realign our physical, emotional and spiritual world. This therapy is based on the principle that everything in the universe is vibrating energy – from the biggest mountain or ocean to the tiniest blade of grass, and even each individual cell in our body. The sound of the Singing Bowl touches our innermost soul and tunes us back into nature’s frequencies. The sound breaks down tension, mobilizes self healing forces, and sets free creative energies.

This session is included in your package.

Signature Balinese Massage (1 Hour Session Included)

A thoughtful and deeply appreciated inclusion that your guests will benefit from. Our highly trained and skilled practitioners will delight and relax your participants with this signature 60-minute pampering and healing session.

Great for jet lag and a relaxing way to help with acclimatizing after the flight.

Guests can choose to upgrade to any spa treatment as well (including facials, mani-pedi, and much more, click here for more details).

Please note that service is performed only by female therapists. 

Whitewater Rafting

Choose from two fun and exhilarating rivers and adventures. The rivers in Bali are not technical or difficult for rafting. There are some great rapids but it is suitable for almost all ages. Please note there are many many steps to the river and this may be the most challenging part of the trip so a moderate level of fitness is suggested. Departure time is  flexible and usually around 8-10am. Return times vary but, are usually around 2-3pm.

Telaga Waja River

  • The longest rafting route in Bali. A 16-kilometer route, 2.5 hour rafting trip
  • Easier access from the lobby to river rafting starting point.
  • Rapids class II – IV (more thrill and adventure).
  • Caution! Some area of the river has shallow water.
  • Location in Karangasem around 1 hour from Floating leaf.

Ayung River

  • Located close to Ubud. From Floating leaf it is 40 minutes.
  • Very suitable for beginners, with rapid class grade II-III.
  • Fantastic scenery with stone carvings in some areas of the river walls.
  • Caution! Long stairways from the lobby area to river starting point, also long stairs from rafting finish point to the restaurant area.

Not as challenging and technical as Telaga Waja River Rafting but very fun.

Horseback Riding

Ride along the volcanic sands and feel the rush of the crashing waves at Saba Beach, a stunning coastal treasure just 5 minutes away from Floating Leaf. As you embark on this journey, you'll not only witness the natural beauty of Bali, but you'll also experience an intimate perspective of Balinese life.

Batik Class

Embark on an immersive journey into the heart of Balinese culture. As honored guests at the workshop of Bali’s esteemed batik maestro, Pak Widyo Harsono, we'll delve deep into a tradition passed down through generations.

Every time we facilitate this experience, we're left in awe of the astounding artworks our guests craft — tangible memories of an unforgettable journey. Pak Widyo's intuitive approach means he's adept at tailoring assistance to each individual, ensuring everyone finds their unique artistic flair.

Set against the serene backdrop of his workshop, our session commences at 10 am and gracefully concludes around 3 pm. To enhance this enriching experience, guests will be treated to an authentic lunch, savored amidst the warmth and hospitality of the master artist's residence.

Hidden Canyon Guwang

Hidden Canyon Guwang is a nice activity if you only have a couple hours. It is just 10 minutes from Floating Leaf. The participants should be reasonably fit as you hike through the canyon but it is not rigorous or difficult. The rocks can be slippery and you will be hiking in a beautiful deep canyon but, we have not seen injuries or complaints that it was dangerous or too difficult.

Water is normally ankle deep but can be waist high at times so bring only what is necessary. There are guides who are well trained and they know every inch of the terrain. They will let you know where to exactly place your feet and hands in order to make the canyon rocks easily navigated.

The colors and formations are exquisite. This activity requires around 1-hour of trekking.
