Guest Reviews

The accommodation was wonderful, the yoga sessions were fantastic. The kindness, patience, gentleness of the staff, especially at reception are beyond words. This memory will forever stay with me. I feel humbled by the experience and I am inspired to be a better person. I would like to thank you and especially Jan, Wayan and Tekok from the deep of my heart. I would hopefully see you again next year.

Thank you for making this a memorable experience. I will be back.

ONEWORLD retreats provides a tranquil, delightful and magical experience. The staff are warm, courteous, friendly and efficient. Our yoga classes were tailored to suit each of our needs and the level of activity on the day. It makes one feel acknowledged and valued. I could not believe that each day surpassed the previous day’s authenticity.

Therese, Australia


The overall experience was wonderful. I would recommend the retreat to my friends family or others. The spa facilities were 5 star, the food was lovely. The yoga & meditation was overall relaxing and informative.

Evelyn, Australia


“This journey was the most special part of my travels to Ubud. The facility is unbelievably beautiful. The rooms are so comfortable and visually breath taking and the treatment rooms are the most beautiful I have ever seen! I dream of my return to Kumara Sakti! Wayan was such a special part of the vacation. His yoga classes were perfect and the studio is the most amazing place to practice. The rice field walk we took with Wayan was educational, beautiful and the lunch at the end was delicious. I am trying to plan a retreat to Bali with two Los Angeles yoga teachers and you”re my number one choice.”

RESORT

ONEWORLD’s holistic retreat lies in the hills of Ubud, Bali – about 1.5 km away from the hustle and bustle of the village center. The eco-friendly retreat is peaceful and serene, bordered by a small creek to the west and surrounded by jungle and rice fields. And it is probably the only retreat centre in the world with a Palace in its backyard!

We offer 14 comfortable and spacious rooms, two swimming pools, dining room, a yoga shala open to nature as well as a spa where you can enjoy high quality treatments. You will find lush gardens and pavilions to relax and indulge in the beautiful views. Should you wish to explore Ubud during free time, we offer shuttle bus service.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace/balcony and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests’ ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years. See all the facilities.


YOGA AND MEDITATION

The meditation and yoga sessions are a soft approach to what may become part of one’s daily life. Through meditation and yoga, people from around the world and all levels of society have reached incredible results in balancing the body, mind and spirit, therefore achieving more focus and being in control over life’s daily events.

The yoga we offer is Hatha and it combines the precision of Iyengar with the dynamism of Ashtanga. Participants are introduced to Pranayama, Asanas, relaxation techniques and rituals. During the contemplative meditation sessions 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.


MEALS

Our chefs are experienced and eager to offer you the freshest, healthiest and most tasteful meals, infused with love. Your special wishes and dietary requirements are taken care of whenever possible. All your meals are included and most of them are eaten together with the group in the beautiful jungle dining room but sometimes are also served in the privacy of your own balcony or at an outside location. Your personalized itinerary will inform you in detail.


SPA

Part of your journey is enjoying the luxury of our skilled therapists’ hands. Inclusive are a Relaxing Massage OR Facial treatment and Kumara’s famous 2,5 hours Ayurveda Chakra Dhara Massage. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.
