  • I lack the words to describe how powerful, wonderful and empowering this retreat was. It is just as hard to express how thankful and grateful I am to the team who made this possible. I would definitely recommend this experience to anybody who needs to disconnect and ‘Escape The World’ for a while. This week has enabled me reconnect with myself; mentally, physically and spiritually. The magical atmosphere of the resort, the good vibes and positive energy of the team members as well as the synergy we were able to reach together made this experience unforgettable and enlightening. The yoga classes were very good. I really enjoyed each session. The spa treatments were exceptional. I appreciated the activities. The closing ceremony was an intense experience, a beautiful way to end the retreat. Overall, a fantastic experience! Thank you! Terima kasih!

  • The experience was special as Bali has a certain kind of magic that you just can't find anywhere else. The retreat centre is lush and natural, perfect for an Ubud jungle oasis. The rooms are large and clean. The team members are helpful and accommodating, the spa treatments are superb. The visits to the temples, rice fields & the volcano helped you to really understand the unique and traditonal culture of Bali. Namaste.

  • The experience was just like the title of the retreat. A true ‘Escape the World’ retreat with all the extra delightful touches. The Silent Day and bike ride were a highlight. Thank you.
