In Mayan, “Bacalar” means “laguna of seven colors.” It is said that there are seven shades of blue in the pristine waters of Bacalar. And seven, being a sacred number in many traditions (ie: the 7 chakras in yogic philosophy), makes this magical location one of wonder, and beauty, and the perfect place to connect with nature.
The Akalki Holistic Center is a sanctuary of relaxation and healing, exquisite beauty and comfort, located on the banks of the pristine waters of the seven colors: Laguna Bacalar, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Immersed in the jungle, away from the city noise, and surrounded by paradisiacal views, freshwater, jungle, and mangrove, It is home to many exotic and beautiful animals and vegetation.
While you may certainly call or text your loved ones or share your experience on social media, we will be encouraging a digital detox as much as possible. Just simple mindfulness of how we are using our phones and technology so we can spend more time connecting to ourselves and others on this retreat. But again, we recognize this is YOUR retreat so you can choose what is best for you.
Please know that this retreat will be free from substances, tobacco, and alcohol. Although it’s lovely to have a glass of wine at the end of the night, we think this is the perfect opportunity to step out of our comfort zones and daily routines and into a true space of reconnecting to ourselves and how we truly feel naturally. If you have any concerns with this, please feel free to reach out to us.
We are completely open to books and would love to chat with you!

Allow yourself to step away from the hectic cycle of daily life so that you may finally take the necessary time to think, rest, and recover. Our neurological systems have a very difficult time going into reset mode in our constantly connected society. Cortisol stimulated by outside stimuli like technology, stress, and lack of sleep keeps the mind racing and the body working overtime. By participating in our retreat for healing and wellness, we can assist you in resetting your nervous system and restoring balance to your entire being.

Luh was born to a Balinese high Priest and her siblings are now also Hindu Priests.
Instead of Luh following the specific traditions of her family she branched out into a different Spiritual path after facing many life challenges of depression, addictions, and cancer.
Luh combined her healing wisdom of herbs she was taught by her Grandparents and deepened her knowledge through modern-day learning. She then began to combine everything she learned to heal.
Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, herbal medicine, crystal healing, energy healing, and the Ayurveda lifestyle. In 2016 Luh began holding regular workshops on Chakra, crystal healing, pranayama, and yoga.
Luh traveled around Indonesia, South Asia, France, India, Nepal & Sri Lanka teaching her own yoga teacher training in 2018. This is when Luh began to learn Vedic astrology in Rishikesh.
And just remember that this is YOUR retreat so if you need more time to yourself, you are free to take it- all group activities are simply offered to enhance your experience
