The retreat really exceeded my expectations. The yoga was excellent and very varied to suit how people were feeling. Everyone got a lot of personal attention and the opportunity to go to their maximum. The other activities were really interesting and valuable experiences that I would not normally have had the opportunity to access. They were great learning experiences done in a few way and I really appreciated that. I enjoyed learning about Balinese culture. Very much.

This has probably been the most beautiful holiday I ever have experienced. The things I learned; yoga practices, traditional Balinese culture, and lovely food. Great company was perfect. All the staffs were very attentive and engaging but I have to make particular mention of Wayan who was always so incredibly gracious and generous—of his time, his knowledge and spirit. Thank you!

For a relatively new yoga man, I approached the week with a little trepidation; however, I was pleasantly surprised and would recommend the yoga retreat concept to anyone. Thinking, open minded, stressed, professional as a way of unwinding. ONEWORLD retreats provided an environment where this was easily achieved.

Daniele, Australia

I found the retreat to be restorative and a great help with my yoga practice.

I passed a wonderful exciting time in your resort. I had a fabulous time at Kumara.

Susanne, Switzerland

I loved the yoga program - great pace and flow! The view from the resort is magnificent and the staff is very helpful. The excursion program was great, we got to see a beautiful side of Bali (like walking through rice fields) which you would not normally do). We had a wonderful group of people attending which is always an important part of how much I enjoy myself.

Day 1, What a view, Day 3, yoga muscles are finally selling in...Day 5, The yoga is great - but the activities are what make the place life changing I really needed this. A massage and floral bath during a thunderstorm topped off a truly memorable retreat. Thank you to Wayan & Vivienne for the best holiday I've ever had.

1. Great initiation to yoga from a very competent and experienced teacher in a relaxing & breath taking. beautiful setting supported by genuinely friendly balinese staff. 2. Activities are designed to give everyone a possibility to discover the full beauty of bali first hand. 3. Spiritual experience & relaxation was best I have had thus far, the right balance to take away whatever one desires.

Michael, Australia

The accommodation and Kumara are faultless and pride in themselves an ideal "retreat" from the world outside. Vivienne is a masterful teacher who will unquestionably guide any persons yoga practice, irrespective of what discipline you have previously followed.

Ragni, Australia

Bliss.... I loved the food, not having to decide from a menu, beautifully presented + delicious. Balinese people are excellent at service. The retreat has idyllic views across a river to jungle/ nice paddies seen from our room, the yoga studio and the pool.

If you want a total escape from your busy, stressful life, and want to indulge your self in your love yoga, and develop a greater understanding of it, then this retreat is for you. You will also experience the real Bali. The spiritual, special area of ubud and the hills. enjoy relaxing spa treatments, lovely walks through rice field, bike rides and visits to ancient villages. A yoga sessions at sunrise looking out over the volcano is wondrous. The food is truly wonderful too. But most of all you get plenty of free time!

Christine, Australia

We both thoughly enjoyed our" pure yoga" retreat experience at Kumara Sakti. Thank you to all the fabulous, friendly, gracious staff who looked after us so well answered on many questions, nourished us with sensational meals, massage and pampered us at the spa with their with their beautiful energies and hands. Kumara Sakti resort is a beautiful place. we loved being on our balcony, able to just sit and rest, surrounded by lush and impressive gardens and views. A definite high light was the early morning trek up to Batur volcano area watch the sun come up. Doing our morning yoga here on the balcony/ terrace was magical, as was listening to Wayan chant a beautiful, moving prayer. Terima kasih banyak.

Ravi & Sophie, Australia

It was a great week of Yoga at a retreat in a tropical rainforest overlooking the rice fields in Ubud. I liked the spiritual rituals. Spa was awesome, food devine. True rejuvenation to body and soul. Thank you Vivienne and the team!!!! P.S. First night dessert in the mansion over the Balinese Customs was very special!

Inna, Australia

We had been before and liked it so much, we returned and found it even better – rooms improved – food raised to very high standard, overall excellent, we plan to keep returning at least once a year.

Roger, Turks & Caicos Islands

A perfect setting to rest and recharge. The attention to detail is amazing and helps to make this a deeply relaxing + spiritual experience. Everything is taken care of – Thank you to all the lovely staff at Kumara. I sincerely hope to be back very soon! I will miss the gentle sounds of the forest, the lush green and the wonderful warmth! Namaste, Fran.
