Kamaya’s name is derived from two Sanskrit words combined as one; Kama meaning “love ” and Maya “invisible blessing ” which extends a magical blessing to couples who affirm their love in the iconic Kamaya Blessing.
Kamaya’s chapel known as Kamaya Blessing is octagonally shaped and this eight sided structure is welcoming couples from all denominations. The octagonal shape is representative of the sacred Mandala and symbolises renewal and infinity. In Kamaya Blessing below glass are a series of crystals embedded into the original sand of Uluwatu and surrounded by a heart shaped bead of rose quartz crystals giving a sense of renewal and blessing from this very special place. The wedding couple shall stand on the glass directly above this energised crystal field.
Kamaya’s unique octagon shaped pavilion is sleek in design ornamented with floor to ceiling white terracotta walls and pillars. The pavilion allows energy from the ocean and surroundings to flow naturally.
In addition to these spaces there are various smaller locations such as the Lotus Bale for that romantic dinner for two or the Segara Terrace which can cater for smaller parties of up to 25 people.

Kamaya Bali is blessed by the Gods and guarded by the goddess of the south seas and the God of Nusa Penida. With that blessing there also comes an obligation to honour this special place. Kamaya Bali is located adjacent to the temple called Batu Belah meaning “split rock”, the giant fissure gives the impression that this hindu temple is suspended out from the cliff face. This is believed to be the last resting place for Nirartha, the 15th century monk who then went on to build the Pura Luhur Uluwatu, the world famous Uluwatu temple. This is one of the mother temples of Bali and Hindus from afar pay homage to this temple.
The construction and design follows the the principle of mandala and is built in response to the meridian line from Uluwatu and Tanah Lot Temples. The gods of Nusa Penida and the goddess of the south seas have a special union also and this is manifested in love and is represented by the two temples floating before the chapel in the reflection pond.
The material used and the motifs are very much Indicative and representative of Balinese Hindu method and art and culture. An example are the motifs associated with the terracotta columns and small representative flower tiles on the walls of the Kamaya Blessing and the dining pavilion above. These are hand moulded and fired from terracotta from a small village called Pejaten in western Bali. The shapes of some of the roof tops are also representative of the shape of Balinese roofs and throughout the property one can feel the spirit of journey and ceremony associated with life on the island of Bali. The use of recycled timbers and structures together with the landscape rounds out this setting perched above the world famous Uluwatu surf break making it one of the iconic venues in Bali.
