Guest Testimonials

The Escape the World retreat exceeded my expectation. The staffs are so friendly and helpful, the treatments are amazing, the food is outstanding, the excursions are well considered and I just wish it never ended. I had a wonderful week. Iyan and Wayan were wonderful yogis and the spa therapists have renewed my body of stress...

Karyn, Australia

ONEWORLD Retreats are another world! I have been traveling for about 15 years of my life and this retreat ranked in the top two trips and experiences I have ever had! The journey from the first moment till the very last has been magical. I did not know a place like this existed. I do not want to leave. I will be back. P.S We love little Wayan!

Craly, Australia

I came expecting a program of yoga and meditation with some other aspects. I hadn't realized how thoughtfully designed the whole experience would be from the carefully paced yoga and activities to the gentle understanding of our needs and the introduction to the spiritual nature of Bali culture...

Sue, Australia

Everything was excellent, just very fine. I really enjoyed staying here and really enjoyed the silence day. I very much liked finding out the real Bali during bike ride day. It is very good that everything is as well planned and everybody respects it; the schedule, etc. I would like to come again.

Anna, Spain

I had an incredible experience on my "Escape the World" Retreat. Iyan and both Wayans were excellent instructors, demonstrators, adjusters and tour guides. They guided us physically and spiritually in a beautiful journey over the week. The classes build over the week with options so as not to be too overwhelming...
