Inside and Around the House

About Narbuli Retreat House

At Narbuli, we have created an environment that gives you the opportunity to unwind, replenish your energy levels, and engage in personal development. We offer a variety of spaces that are perfectly suited to solitary reflection or group activities.

The founders of Narbuli Retreat House have taken full advantage of Amatciems’ unique characteristics, including its serene surroundings, breathtaking views, and slow-paced rhythm of life. To cater to our guests’ diverse needs, Narbuli provides a range of different relaxation and meditation areas. These spaces are located both inside the house and on the wider property, and are designed to be suitable for all weather conditions, personal temperaments, and preferences.

The Practice Room

Located on the first floor of the house, this spacious room features a mosaic heated floor and panoramic windows along the southern and western walls. Adjacent to the room is a wooden terrace with a transparent roof, providing shelter from the rain or softening the sunlight.

The Circular Terrace

This wooden terrace is accessible from the public hall on the basement floor. It has an area of 10 sq. m and surrounds the house on its western, northern, and eastern sides. The balcony on the first floor provides shelter from the rain, allowing guests to enjoy the terrace in any weather.


Located on the north side of the house, the common hall on the first floor features a spacious balcony adjacent to the kitchen. It is sheltered from the rain by the balcony of one of the second-floor rooms.

On the second floor, adjacent to the King’s room in the southeast corner of the house, is a sunny balcony that is available to all if the room is unoccupied or if the resident doesn’t mind company. The balcony can be reached via a spiral staircase located in front of the house entrance, which bypasses the room.

Our retreat house also features a spacious balcony on the second floor, with access from the Magician and Inner Child (Boy) rooms. This balcony faces northwest, offering stunning views of the lake’s farthest shore and the surrounding forest. The Warrior’s room also has its own balcony, situated one floor below but with equally impressive views.

If your room has a balcony, you can feel free to take advantage of this space to practice yoga or meditation without any interruptions.

Kitchens and the dining area

The kitchen and adjacent dining room on the first floor have a total area of 40 sq. m. The kitchen is fully equipped with a stove, range hood, dishwasher, coffee maker, electric kettle, and a thermo pot. All necessary tableware is provided for the group. The dining area has two extendable tables that can comfortably seat up to 16 people.

Similarly, the basement floor kitchen also has an area of 40 sq. m and is equipped with essential appliances such as a stove, oven, range hood, dishwasher, capsule coffee maker, microwave, electric kettle, and toaster.

There is a movable table that can be used for cooking, serving, and dining. Besides this, there are four bar stools and all necessary tableware for cooking. If required, large pots and pans can be provided.

Both kitchens are stocked with tea, coffee, capsules, sugar, salt, sponges, cloths, cleaning agents, and dishwasher tablets.

The cozy fireplace lounge

This space is a favorite among our guests, offering a cozy and comfortable environment for relaxation and socializing. Its centerpiece is a charming fireplace that creates a warm and inviting atmosphere, particularly during chilly winter evenings. The hall has been designed with large windows that let in plenty of natural light and offer a serene view, creating a comfortable and homely ambiance inside.

The sauna

Our sauna, located in the basement of the house, can provide a meditative experience for certain guests. It comes complete with a toilet and shower behind the adjacent door, and after a relaxing session, guests can unwind in the antechamber whilst savoring a cup of tea. From here, you can go out to the terrace with chairs and a sofa or down to the pier on the lake for a refreshing swim.
A picturesque arched window frame is located near the house on the way to the lake, offering stunning views of the surrounding area.
Two unique stools made from old logs and adorned with burnt bear faces are situated on the dam between the pond and the lake.
Small bridges located on the lake allow guests to easily access the water and dock boats.

Outside Narbuli Retreat House

There are plenty of interesting places to explore beyond Narbuli Retreat House. At Amatciems, we are nestled in a forest 15 km away from Cēsis, a medieval gem of Vidzeme, and just 84 km away from the capital, Riga.

Besides this, Amatciems is located on the border of Gauja National Park, a nature reserve with dozens of hiking and biking trails, natural monuments, and architectural landmarks…and this is just the beginning!
