  • This has been the best week I have dedicated to myself in my entire life

    Anna, Australia

  • If your soul or your body needs restoring this is the place to come. The people and the environment welcome you immediately with open arms and you never leave that embrace the whole time you are here. Thank you Iyan, both Wayans and the rest of the ONEWORLD Family

    Kathrine, Australia

  • This retreat exceeded all my expectation. From the minute we arrived at the retreat a wave of calmness spread over us. The room and the view are just perfect. The yoga and the meditation room take your breath away. All the sessions were perfect for all levels of yogis and the gentle guidance of Iyan and the two Wayans was just right. The food, the retreat ground, other activities and free time were exceptional. I had 5 spa treatments by 4 different therapist and for each & every session & therapist blew me away. And finally every single member of staff at the retreat couldn't have been kinder, nicer, and more welcoming. I'm leaving the retreat wonderfully rejuvenated and can't wait to return.

    Lisa, New Zealand

  • Escape the world with ONEWORLD retreats has been an incredible experience. I came with very little yoga experience, however that did not matter, Iyan and Wayan were encouraging, supportive, calm and great teachers. Thank you so much for your openness, wisdom with yoga and spirituality. The staff every day amazed me with their continued kindness, understanding, patience and helpfulness. All the "small things" went a long way to make me feel comfortable here. Everyone always has a smile on their face. What beautiful people I have met this week. Lifelong friends made from Bali and many other countries. Thank you, thank you! Peace, unity, love.

    Emily, Australia

  • Everything is so organised from the beginning. The teams do not miss any details and you feel welcome and respected as you are. My room was even better than I could dream about, with a gorgeous view. The yoga was just wonderful. The teachers are so nice, knows how to be very friendly but never private. They are so respectful when they help you to understand the yoga spirit. I met very nice people since I was here by myself. From all my heart, I recommend you that wonderful paradise part of the world.

All the extra special little touches were greatly appreciated and so unexpected, fantastic service, great classes, brilliant cultural and spiritual activities and rituals. Lovely food and beautiful accommodation. Simply couldn’t ask for more! I will definitely be coming back for another retreat and recommending it whole-heartedly to everyone I know.

    Alicia, Australia

  • Thank you so much for the wonderful experiences during the retreat. Words can't express fully how impressed and enlightened I was by all the activities in the program, yoga, treatments, staff members, Iyan, the Wayans and Claude! I was pleasantly surprised that all the staff members know my name and always showed beautiful smiles. The whole program provided me with great opportunities to reflect myself and think about what I want and what I don't want in my life. It went far beyond yoga, but truly a treat to both my body and soul. I'll also cherish the great energies from everybody here and from friends in the program. Thank you again! These will surely be great memories in my life.
