  • One of the most positive and life affirming experiences I have had. I booked the retreat to seek time, space and peace for myself and the results have been remarkable. Iyan, Wayan, Tekok and all the staff show such love and generosity. I have been nurtured, renewed and rebalanced. The yoga and meditation sessions were sometimes very challenging but so rewarding. I would thoroughly recommend a retreat or stay at ONEWORLD retreats Kumara.

  • I knew this experience would be incredible, but my expectations were exceeded! Besides improving my yoga & meditation practice, we were also able to learn & experience the culture of Bali. Thanks to Iyan & all of the staff for being so detail-oriented. Everything was so well thought & organised. I feel amazing & blessed to have had this opportunity in Bali.

  • I didn't just escape the world on this retreat but also found a little piece of heaven in Ubud. The yoga was for yogis of all levels, the accommodation is superb, the staff are exceptional, the massages were incredible, the rituals cleansing and the activities were just perfect. Iyan and Wayan led an amazing group of people through a very enjoyable week. I will treasure the memories & hopefully be a slightly better version of me when I return home. Thank you for all the work, ONEWORLD retreats.

  • My experience with ONEWORLD retreats exceeded my expectations. The staff are courteous, kind and competent. The food is out of this world.

A heartfelt thank you to Claude, Iyan, Wayan & Wayan and the entire team at ONEWORLD retreats. You continue to surpass all expectations.

    Ros, Australia

  • If you want to experience Balinese culture, meditate, do some yoga, eat nourishing food and be pampered then ONEWORLD retreats is for you. My room is opposite the rice paddies and I could hear the birds chirping and possums making noises each day and night. The smell of incense filled my room and I felt as if I were in paradise. I could not highly recommend this retreat enough.

    Desligh, Australia

  • This retreat has been a wonderful experience. It is so well-organised with every detail thought out and taken care of. The staff can't be complemented enough, everyone who worked here is very professional and friendly and most importantly very good at their job. The entire retreat program was fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Bree, Australia

  • It was really a chance to escape & forget about life for a week. A chance to let go of worries, practice yoga, meditation & meet a great group of like-minded souls. A chance to refresh & recharge and be inspired to take on the world.

    Natasha, Australia

  • Escape The World - the perfect name for this retreat. You can experience so much on this retreat while connecting with the community at ONEWORLD retreats which soon feels like family. The treatments, accommodation, yoga, food and activities have all been meticulously planned and delivered to such a standard. The service from the staff is incredible. You might escape from your current reality but the joy is in experiencing the Balinese way of life. Iyan and his team are incredible teachers who showcase the best of what real yoga is. I have loved the classes! I hope to be back soon, to experience ONEWORLD retreats again.
