  • My experience at ONEWORLD retreats has been unbelievably amazing. It far exceeded anything I could have imagined. It was a beautiful six days of spoiling my self and allowing time to think about my life, my goals and my future. Iyan, Wayan and Tekok all have a wonderful ability to make you feel very relaxed and welcome. The knowledge and assistance was invaluable. I felt very comfortable in the group regardless of my capabilities. They were always there to help and assist. The staff were amazing. The food is always tasty, using creative healthy recipes. I loved everything.

  • A gorgeous setting that allows you to explore yourself and meet some fantastic people along the way. The yoga is great for beginners and Wayan and Iyan were amazing at pushing the more advanced yogis out of our comfort zones. Thank you to everyone here! I'll definitely be back.

  • I had an amazing experience, which I got to share with a lovely bunch of people. The yoga was great and the staff really catered to your every need. The resort is set amongst such magic surroundings. It was a truly uplifting spiritual experience.

    Jennifer, Australia

  • It is such a bliss! I came only for 3 days and when I saw this amazing place I decided to join the retreat and it was the best decision ever. It is just perfect to stop for a moment, take a deep breath, turn off the world outside, relax and think of your dreams. There is no better place for dreaming. And the workshops are just enough to set you in the right mood for it. The meditation, yoga with amazing and caring instructors, heavenly spa treatments, luxurious accommodation and healthy yet extremely delicious food make you feel absolutely wonderful on all levels of your body and soul. You get to meet great people and make new friends while you are in a dream together. And all the tiny details and service just make you feel" ahhhh", I will be back!

  • This is my second retreat at ONEWORLD retreats and once again it surpassed all expectations. Retreat is a misnomer for this experience because it is really about experiencing life to its fullest. If you are looking for an opportunity to recharge and re-engage in, you will find it here.

    Rachel, New Zealand

  • 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!

    Garance, Belgium

  • 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.

    Marcey, Canada

  • 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.

    Karen, Australia

  • As a beginner to yoga I was a bit apprehensive, but Iyan and the team were great! Their knowledge, understanding and patience really helped me throughout the retreat. The attention to detail is second to none. The food was excellent and catered the different dietary needs of the participants. I would just like to say a big thank you to all of the team for making my Bali experience so memorable. Terima kasih!

    Kieran, Ireland

  • I've never done anything like this before and Iyan, Wayan, Tekok, Claude and the entire ONEWORLD retreats Kumara staff made me feel at home. The resort feels like a spiritual haven.
