ONEWORLD retreats at Kumara


The fourteen bedroom Holistic retreat is located 1.5 km from the heart of Ubud in Bali. Bordered to the west by a small creek, the eco-friendly retreat is surrounded by jungle and rice fields. The retreat center offers 2 swimming pools, dining room, Spa and a 100 sq. meter yoga studio open to nature.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace, mini-bar and shower. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests' ultimate serenity, everyone above the age of 14 is welcome at the retreat.


Kripalu Yoga:
Kripalu Yoga is an integrated system of self-transformation that empowers you to realize your full potential. The journey begins as your revitalize the body through postures, breathing exercises, and relaxation techniques. It deepens as you learn to focus awareness, enabling you to enter meditative states that awaken compassion and clear the mind. Through the practice of Kripalu Yoga, you discover how to nurture the roots of health, catalyze personal growth, live with greater skillfulness and joy, and transform your sense of what it means to be alive

Yin Yoga:
Yin Yoga is a practice that emphasizes stretching of the connective tissue and the joints - rather than the muscles - in the body. This is done by passively holding seated or supine postures for 3-5 minutes. Practicing in this way creates space and ease in the body, and is a great complement to more dynamic practices of yoga. Since there is a strong meditative component to this practice, it has a calming effect on your mind as well.


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

Our chefs are experienced and eager to offer you the freshest and 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!

During your retreat you will enjoy a Spa Mandi Treatment. This 17th century Javanese royal treatment will make you feel on top of the world! Mandi lulur is the luxurious pre-wedding ritual of Indonesian women. This treatment moisturizes and restores the natural PH balance of your skin.
