ONEWORLD retreats was recommended to me by a friend. She told me I would love it and she was right! Everything was perfect – the yoga, meditation, the spa and the activities. The food was amazing (I would come back for the food alone)! I feel like I have been away much longer than a week. Thank you to Claude, Iyan and Wayan for making my Christmas and New Years so special. A special thank you to Ketut at reception, he was so friendly and so helpful and always greeted everyone with a smile – all the staff are wonderful and I look forward to returning soon.

Words cannot explain the joy and satisfaction I received by coming to this retreat. I flew half way around the world from Florida, USA for healing and I wasn’t disappointed. Claude and Iyan plus all the ONEWORLD retreats staff, you were all amazing and so gracious. Thank you for filling us with knowledge about your country. Bali is a beautiful island. I would hope I can come back again next christmas. Keep up the good work. I’ve been in heaven for 8 days.

I feel so lucky to have found this place. It has energy of its own. Everything was so planned out and taken care of that all I had to do was enjoy yoga and Ubud. The staff is the most professional, kindest and thoughtful group of people I have ever met in my life. I can’t wait to take the things I’ve learned during the retreat home. Thank you for the best week of my life and for running this magical program.

Escape the world retreat was so well organized. A great experience from pick up at the airport onwards. A very relaxing and thoughtful retreat which will give any participants time to stop, reflect and relax away from our very busy normal lives. We received an excellent service by all the team at the retreat. Leaders and yoga instruction was not only on the yoga mats! Iyan and the team gave so much of their time and attention to make the whole experience the best it could be possibly be.

This was truly a retreat from the world into a beautiful paradise, cultural excursion, and gentle yoga experience. The staffs were incredible, and ready to help with anything at anytime. We loved the spa treatments, meditation, and delicious food and we got to know wonderful people from around the world. Thank you for the fantastic experience.

My experience of ‘Escape the World’ retreat is I stepped off the planet onto paradise. The schedule of my experience was a constant surprise and delight. I could feel the care and thoughtful planning in every element of my time here. My mind is calm, my body is relaxed and my heart is full. Terima kasih and see you again soon!

Dionne, UK

Iyan and team have curated an amazing experience with the ‘Escape the World’ retreat. The yoga sessions cater to all levels of yoga practicioners and includes breathing and meditation work. In addition to the well-crafted yoga sessions, the retreat includes some incredible life experiences – the purification ritual at Tirta Empul, sunrise yoga overlooking mount Batur, and a walk through a traditional Balinese rice field. And to top it all off, there is a spa on site…simply heaven! The people were terrific, every meal wonderful and all just steps away from the energy of the Ubud center. Thank you Iyan, Wayan, and team for an experience I will never forget.

Michelle, USA

I need to heal, find ‘me’ again and I think this allowed me to truly ‘Escape the World’ and find some inner peace. I think this has helped me to feel comfortable in my own skin and to work through some negativity. It was a fantastic group of people to share the experience with, in such a beautiful location- seriously a paradise! The yoga was challenging but that is exactly what I needed. I truly loved experiencing and seeing the Balinese culture and the day trips were amazing. Thank you Iyan and Wayan for sharing your yoga and Bali knowledge – you are both inspiring. And to wonderful staffs – all so friendly and incredibly helpful.

Kate, New Zealand

The retreat was surrounded by such serenity, happiness, care and commitment from the accommodations, little gifts, meditation, yoga, excursions and best of all the spa treatments, day of silence and closing ritual. The location was ideal, total serenity nestled in the jungle with views of rice terraces and sunset which was only a short transfer by courtesy shuttle to the hustle and bustle of downtown Ubud. I highly recommend ONEWORLD retreats!
