This is a very special, healing place to come and relax away from the rest of Bali. The way is used to be when I first visited over 30 years ago. The raw food was delicious although the menu is limited... The Spa was first rate. Staff was wonderful! Not to be missed if you have the budget...
Amazing healing place in Ubud offering delicious (raw) vegan dishes and everything else is too good to be true. Pencils made out of cinnamon, a bamboo restaurant, paradise garden, but the best are the healing services ... the fire ceremony has transformative power and can change your life. and the meditation with dada is something that your heart will never forget. nature meets modern technology in the bungalow, all lights and music sound are managing through a tablet. I simply loved this energetic place.

It might sound bold, but Five Elements is one of the greatest stays I’ve ever had. From the moment we arrived, Five Elements felt magical, relaxing and a feast for all the senses. Staying for five nights as part of our honeymoon, we were greeted with a extraordinary, healthy welcome drink before being guided through the stunning grounds to our room (the “Teja” suite), complete with private outdoor bath, overlooking the river.
The room was comfortable and quiet, immersed in the sounds of the river and it’s surrounding nature. The internet was excellent and the room serviced twice daily, making us feel at all times attended to. The food was truly superb and the staff extremely professional, friendly and accommodating.
For those looking to truly indulge, we recommend the couple’s “Signs of Love” massage package, whereby you are treated to a first-class riverside massage, followed by dinner.
We also loved the facilities on offer, but did find the pricing a bit restrictive for our tastes, so traveled to Ubud’s town centre often, as there are no other facilities or restaurants nearby. This became a little taxing at times, with the 30 minute (longer in heavy traffic) drive and the hotel shuttle only offering three trips daily. This is however hardly a negative against FiveElements, who clearly advertise the place as a retreat and is the perfect setting for those looking to isolate themselves in this truly spectacular riverside paradise.
I really can’t express enough how special our stay at FiveElements was. With it’s setting, privacy and atmosphere we enjoyed a honeymoon stay that will be with us forever.

Fivelements, as the name implies, connects visitors to the elements within the property to get in touch with the soul.
It is not just fancy descriptions; the site is full of greenery nature, the architecture of the properties made to bond with their location, which is on top of a running river. Even the bathtub is outside on the river to capture unforgettable romantic moments with the loved ones. Not to mention, the toilet "washroom, shower and toilet seats" are also outside from the back. It's exceptionally unique concept that i have not seen in other hotels.
Instead of the health club and night life, this property particularly pays sole attention to spirituality. They have yoga practices in a place that circulates the air naturally for total tranquility. The restaurant is located on the river, with purely vegetarian options that made in Indonesian style by skilled cooks. I was mind wondered by the carefully picked ingredients. This isn't another fancy description, I hardly give or bother to provide any reviews, but this property earned it. I even got the chance find an appropriate chakra healer to put the disrupted gates in order! The Masseuse were skilled more than the Dubai spa-winner, Jumeirah Zabeel Saray.
As far as I'm concerned, the hotel location is on a great site, but far away from the city centre. The good news is the hotel secures free shelters at certain timings. Also, there aren't really many things you can do at night at the property, not even tv found their.
If you are looking for a buzzy experience, then this isn't the hotel for you. This is the place where to reconnect love, appreciate the fine things in life, and revive the spirits.

We visited Fivelements for the couples coconut harmony treatment and the whole experience was nothing short of fabulous! Listening to the soothing sound of the Ayung river while getting our massages as well as enjoying a gorgeous view of it during the coconut milk bath was so so memorable. Perfect romantic setting! The Balinese massage therapists did a fantastic job. We left feeling super refreshed and rejuvenated.
We also took a short tour around the property and the whole place looked so serene, beautiful and peaceful, would be so amazing to getaway to this retreat for a week or so.
