About Us

Lichtzeichen Bali Mandala  The Story of the Bali Mandala

The Bali Mandala Resort is run by Gisela von Keiser and Rainer Grenkowitz in a very heartfelt and personal way.

As friends and business partners it is a matter of heart to us to make the Bali Mandala Resort a very special place of wholeness. Its magic not only touches, nourishes and heals our own lives but also the lives of many people from different backgrounds and various nationalities.

Therefore, it is a special privilege and inner calling for us to run the Bali Mandala Resort inspired by the spirit of the Contemplative Traditions as an invitation to “Come Home to Your Self”.

The story of the Bali Mandala Resort proves that magic does happen and dreams do come true if only we dare to leave the past behind and trust the unknown. It was not us who founded the Bali Mandala Resort as a sort of business concept in 2004 – indeed it felt as if this place had somewhat magically found us.

Lichtzeichen Bali Mandala  Team

Together with our lovely Balinese team we cater to the different needs and necessities of our guests to ensure that your stay at Bali Mandala will be one of a kind.

Lichtzeichen Bali Mandala  Sustainability

Sustainability is of great importance to us. Thus, all of our team members come from the region of Bondalem.

More than it just being a long-term employment relationship, we are intimately involved with the culture and tradition of the village and actively take part in the spiritual and domestic aspects of Balinese life. Celebrating births and weddings as well as temple and cremation ceremonies are as important as the daily chores and duties we share together at the Bali Mandala Resort.

Just as the support of local farmers and vendors and the purchase of organic produce belong to our vision of sustainability, fair work contracts are equally important.

Lichtzeichen Bali Mandala  Environment Protection

Environment conservation and protection are equally important to us. We have always followed the mantra “Think globally, act locally” and have supported the realization of the first domestic waste collection service of Bondalem, took care of the cleaning of the village canals and rivers, and patiently advocated the importance of waste separation and recycling during these last years.

The Bali Mandala Resort utilizes organic sewer tanks instead of the common sewer system that simply releases waste water into the ocean.


Lichtzeichen Bali Mandala  “Yayasan Saraswati Mandala” School Project

We also founded the school project “Yayasan Saraswati Mandala” in 2009.

Just like our contributions towards sustainability this project was brought to life by life itself and didn’t follow any planned developmental plans.
