  • This retreat truly exceeded my expectations. Every little detail was taken care of, every need attended to without even having to ask! The yoga sessions are open for beginners all the way to advanced level. The rooms and facilities were exceptionally clean and the resort is very well maintained. The staff were genuine and friendly, they are really professional and take pride in their work. I found this retreat to be very authentic and unique, giving a true experience of yoga, Bali, the people and their rituals & faith. The activities really gave us a hands-on experience of Balinese life. Iyan and his team are very knowledgeable and willing to answer any questions we had. Overall, a life changing experience. Highly recommended! Thank you for an unforgettable journey.

  • The paradise started from the moment I arrived here. Everything was taken care of. Healthy food, amazing massages and the yoga is very, very, very good. It’s amazing how the whole ONEWORLD retreats team can make you feel like at home. Thank you so much for an amazing week and see you again someday.

    Laurel, Netherlands

  • A really healing and relaxing experience. The spa treatments are second to none. The staff went out of their way to accommodate everyone, and the little touch such as the cold towels at the end of a long cycle ride made it memorable. A great place in which to escape the world - but also close enough to Ubud to rejoin the world when needed!

    Amy, UK

  • Thank you so much for such a wonderful week. I came looking for answers both physically and emotionally and I found them here. I will have to remember to incorporate yoga into my daily life. The purification and letting go ceremonies marked a new moment in my life. I was impressed by the delicious food, service and the thought that has gone into each yoga session and activities. Thank you so much.
