Bali Bliss


Here’s what was said about Bali Bliss 2019:

“The joy I experienced over that week was something I don’t ever recall experiencing. Such a great mix of women. We appreciated yoga and eating well - but also enjoyed coffee, cocktails and shopping! It was a very balanced retreat!”

“Loved it! A great mix of being able to hang with others and also do your own thing if needed.”

“I love how I felt ok during the classes to do what I needed to do and what my body was telling me to do, even if that was different to what was going on”.

“It was the best experience ever! Starting each day with yoga, as I usually don't do any exercise in the morning, and having three sessions every day was so lovely!”

We can accommodate twin share, couples and singles however there are limited options available for each type of room. To ensure your preference is available do make sure to book your spot soon.
