What is Amrita?
In Hindu and Buddhist mythology, Amrita is the drink of devas (non-humans who share the godlike characteristics of being more powerful, longer lived, and generally, much happier than humans) which grants them immortality. By partaking it, the devas were able to attain a higher level of knowledge and power. This chosen space has a power of its own and an energy that few lots of land enjoy.
We were seeking a place where “devas of industry” - the titans of the business world, could seek refuge and reconnect with their inner self and feel rejuvenated and gather inspiration for the next big move.
Rest is one of the most overlooked remedies to stress. Your immediate surroundings are the catalysts for your sense of wellbeing. As the Key Person in your organization the future of thousands of people is dependent on your physical and mental state.
Nature provides us with such remedies holistically and we are surrounded by many of the things that can instantly make us feel better.
Research shows that within minutes of being surrounded by trees and green space, your blood pressure drops, your heart rate slows and your stress levels come down.
Looking at a body of water such as a lake or a river can be soothing but not as effective as green spaces.
The “fruits” of immortality that we seek are all around us and our concept of providing you with a home in the midst of nature and encouraging you to spend time with loved ones and have a little fun as well as detoxing on your own terms.
This, our dear friends, is the Amrita we offer.

Why Bophut Hills?
Few places have the combined effect of natural beauty, rolling mountains, sea views, and convenience to the main dining, medical and entertainment areas on the island, than Bophut Hill’s Khao Phra Ridge.

There is no time like the present to make a change in lifestyle and reposition yourself. The COVID-19 pandemic has reminded all of us of our mortality and one has to have urgency in preparing his Plan-B base for any future calamities or global emergencies, as well as making time for those things that matter the most for everyone – family, friends and good health.
Inspired by Bali’s Ubud region and the many fantastic villas and hotels that have been built in this beautiful area, the search was on for the ultimate large plot of land that had both remarkable mountain views with thick vegetation similar to Ubud, drained by a stream, with gentle slopes, sea views, clusters of coconut trees, and was in a protected surrounding with low noise and within 5 Kilometers- 7 kilometers of the city and wouldn’t instantly sooth away stress.

A Bit About Ubud
The town of Ubud, in the uplands of Bali, Indonesia, is known as a center for traditional crafts and dance. The surrounding Ubud District’s rainforest and terraced rice paddies, dotted with Hindu temples and shrines, are among Bali’s most famous landscapes. Ancient holy sites include the intricately carved Goa Gajah (“Elephant Cave”) and Gunung Kawi, with its rock-cut shrines.
The Tegallang rice terrace is famous for its scenic landscape, where travelers to Ubud often stop by for snapshots of an iconic Balinese view. Bali’s traditional, centuries-old cooperative irrigation system
(known as subak) has created some of the most beautiful terraced landscapes in Southeast Asia, and this valley is a great example
