Words from our leaders

Linda Madani

Dear ONEWORLD retreats crew, I would like thank each and every member of the staff of ONEWORLD retreats for all the support that was given to me during my yoga retreat. I truly enjoyed the experience. Front desk clerks were always willing to assist me. The housekeeping staff was always helpful and made the yoga shala everyday so beautiful and comfortable. The restaurant service was very efficient and the food was so delicious. All the yogis that attended the retreat loved to be surprised by the food every night. Spa treatments made every participants so relaxed. They also loved the comfort of their room and the secluded atmosphere of the premises and the fact that it was not too far from Ubud.

I will definitely come back to lead a retreat with ONEWORLD retreats.

Alanna Kaivalya

As a yoga instructor, you hope to provide a sacred space for people to transform through their practice. No space I have encountered has been more sacred or more transformational than Kumara . Between the atmosphere, the loving staff, the overall vibe of the island, this place is truly a retreat - one that will allow you access to the deep reaches of your heart.

Andrea Marcum

This is the second year running that I am leading a Yoga & Lifestyle retreat through ONEWORLD retreats. The retreats have been a great success thanks to the whole team working on the project and especially at Kumara where the retreats are being held.

I love the location which is amazingly inspiring and gives a definite spiritual edge to my retreats. The employees are trained to high standards of service with an eye for details. They are most charming and always keen to cater for any of the participants ‘needs. From a retreat leader point of view, I find this most important as it helps me focus on delivering my teaching without having to worry about logistic related concerns.

From the wide range of activities I can choose from to include in my retreat program to the quality of the food on offer I know that I can rely on the professionalism of Claude and his team to help my retreats become a blissful experience.

One non-negligible advantage for me to work through ONEWORLD retreats is that they handle all the marketing of my retreats which alleviate the problem of finding participants and leaves me with a peace of mind. I am looking forward to having my third retreat at Kumara!

Martine Bounet

I own U Studio Yoga in Los Angeles, and had not been to Bali prior to my June 2009 retreat. The idea of taking a group so far away, to a place you yourself have not yet been can be intimidating--but that evaporates as soon as you meet Claude and his staff and feel the magic that is Kumara.

No matter where you are, this is a place that you want to be. My group and I, weeks after we have come home, cannot stop emailing each other to say how much we want to return, to wrap ourselves up in the stories of our adventures once again, and to swap photos and slide shows that allow us to linger there for just a moment longer. The attention to detail is impeccable.

Whether it is the artistically arranged mats and props in the glorious yoga pavilion, the coffee and fresh juice on your patio as the roosters crow and the jungle awakens with you, the idyllic spa that overlooks the rice terraces or the exceptional variety of activities that Claude has in store--it is the Bali that everyone dreams of experiencing. Claude adds depth by arranging moments to explain the cultural implications of where we are, and what we are doing as the week progresses -- something transformational happens, and you are left wanting to make sure you carry some of Bali with you always. I can not recommend Kumara more to those considering a retreat in Bali--and I can't wait to return to Claude, his magnificent staff, and the glorious grounds of Kumara in the near future.
