After a good day of deep transformative work there is nothing like being held in a cosy, comfortable room for one's journey through the night world. Our beds and linens and spaces exemplify a simple zen aesthetic and our commitment to service. Bodhi Khaya has 5 different styles of lodging , each unique and satisfying particular needs. We believe the spiritual sanctuary of Bodhi Khaya can be accessible to everyone, we have therefore valued all our beds equally. So book early and select your preference. We will do everything possible to honour your preference but may need to adjust your selection depending on Retreat Program requirements.

Cloister               Courtyard               Communal Farmhouse             Camping       



Around a central courtyard, we have 14 beautiful, monastery style single rooms. The first six rooms, in the front section of the Cloister, share two showers and two toilets. Each room contains a bed, small cupboard space to hang clothes and side table. These rooms lead into an open plan living space that looks out across the gardens and labyrinth. The eight rooms at the back (rooms 7 – 14), each has a bed, side table, cupboard and a basin. These rooms share 3 showers and 3 toilets and a treatment room for soaking baths.


The courtyard rooms are new and modern, and are conveniently situated close to both the Meditation Hall and the main Dining Room. Each room is a twin, with an en suite bathroom. We have named them after the beautiful flowers growing in the garden: Orchid, Poppy, Fern, Wild Olive, Morning Glory, Rose, and Honeysuckle.  

Also on the Courtyard, is Garden Room (usually reserved for teachers), a luxurious double room, with a king-size bed, a Victorian bath and open plan bathroom. This beautifully restored building used to be the old dairy and has high ceilings with rustic wooden rafters and a working fireplace.

Being under the stars, on the earth, and in a location you have found most inviting, can only be experienced by camping. We have a number of locations where we encourage your interface with the wilderness abounding Bodhi Khaya. Join a retreat, or design your own family or personal retreat. Bring your sleeping, tenting and cooking gear and set yourself up in the mountains. Showers and ablution facilities are available.

Fires are restricted to designated fire pits and must be tended at all times. Cooking on fire is encouraged, again only in designated areas.
