Located on Balian Beach on the west coast of the island, Pondok Pitaya Retreat Center is located on the edge of a cliff overlooking natural volcanic black sand beaches.  Pondok Pitaya’s guest houses are cozy Indonesian traditional wooden bungalows built of teak and boat woods. Guest houses face the surf break, have views of the swimming pool, and are conveniently located just meters from the beach. All rooms have been reconstructed from indigenous houses imported from Java, Indonesia dating back to the 1930’s. Some say Pondok Pitaya is a hotel, but some say it's a second home. 

The River Suites habeen reserved for our training group. All accommodations are shared occupancy.
