ONEWORLD retreats at Kumara


The fourteen bedroom holistic retreat is located 1.5 km from the heart of Ubud in Bali. Bordered by a small creek to the west, the eco-friendly retreat is surrounded by jungle and rice fields. The retreat centre offers two swimming pools, dining room, spa and 125 square meter yoga studio open to nature.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace, mini-bar and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests' ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years.



An inspiring and most unique style created by Wayan combines Ashtanga, Hatha and Iyengar yoga and flows beautifully to bring harmony, ease and balance to the mind and body. It encourages you to take your practice beyond the mat, celebrates the beauty of life and the power of Spirit. During the contemplative meditation, you watch your thoughts, without any intention to either control or repress them. Just simply watch and be aware of each movement of the thought and see them move without you being moved by them.


Yin Yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga. However, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues (which we are calling the yang tissues). Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of asana practice.

What is Yin Yoga?

A Yin Yoga class usually consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body; the hips, pelvis, inner thighs and lower spine. These areas are especially rich in connective tissues. The poses are held for up to five minutes, sometimes longer. Each pose, with its long, quiet connection to mind and body is very much a meditative experience - quietly following the breath you deeply stimulate the meridians while garnering the benefits of meditation.


All your meals are included and most are served at the resort.

Our chefs are experienced and eager to offer you the freshest, most tasteful and healthy meals. From our "table d'hôte" you may choose to eat vegetarian or non vegetarian meals. Just like at a friend's place, there are no menus, yet we make sure to know what you like and dislike!

Meals are served either in the jungle dining room or in the privacy of your own balcony table.

Spa treatments

Included are two blissful spa treatments, Mandi Lulur and a Hair Cream Bath or Facial treatment. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.
