Very professional, authentic and passionate about their craft. Faultless experience. It is a retreat where the team not only take you into the Ayurvedic world, but also into their lives and culture.

Rhonda, Australia

Finding the path to balances, holistic wellness of mind, body and spirit in Bali. Lovely to have the Kumara ladies assist with our offering class on Saturday morning.

Ali, Australia

Thank you to the Oneworld Retreats family! It was a mind changing experience! It took nearly 20 hours trip to get here but so worth it!

Serafina, Germany

A wonderful introduction to Ayurveda. Great place to relax and enjoy yoga and good food.

Patricia, Australia

I have done detox retreats at some of the most well known retreats in Australia and this one equals, if not better than them. I had a wonderful experience staying here, cleansing and rejuvenating. The little extras made the stay a wonderful experience. The food, the bottle and bag etc were lovely. By a wonderful coincidence, it was my birthday during the stay and the flowers waiting for me in my room and the birthday cake was very special and a very generous surprise. Thank you too all your staff and doctors in Ubud, Bali.

Amanda, Australia

Wow – what can one say about Oneworld Retreats – exceptional! This is my second retreat and it did not disappoint. From the beautiful natural surroundings, the magnificent architecture, luxurious accommodation, scrumptious and nutritious food. Relaxing spa treatments and the knowledge of Dr. Aparna, Wayan the yoga teacher were extraordinary to the big smiles and kindness of all the staff. It is a winner!

Linda, New Zealand

Oneworld Retreats have perfected the yoga retreat. Such an incredible service and attention to details. The smiles of the staff, the skill of the spa therapists, the inspiration of Wayan’s yoga teachings (and his local knowledge) have left a long lasting impression on me and given me a wonderful experience of Bali and a renewed passion for my own health and wellbeing.

Kate, Australia

The yoga was great! Wayan is a great teacher. Dr. Aparna is very knowledgeable and compassionate. Definitely a very good value.

Kate Shaw, Australia

There is one which encompass all that I experienced here and that is about connecting with the Self and nature, which was perfect for me. I stayed in room 6, a beautiful west on the edge of the forest, where Pitta squirrels and Kapha frogs were my source of entertainment. Dr. Aparna, Dr. Ninnu, and Wayan held the space in a very informative and gentle manner with great humour regarding poses – this is no competition! Kadek has magical massage hands, thank you! Wayan, thank you for enlightening in with your ritual and Balinese customs. I’m very grateful to everyone at Oneworld Retreats for sharing your inner beauty.

Susi, South Africa

The retreat was good, informative and easy introduction to Ayurvedic principles and the practice. Thank you, I really enjoy retreat.

Oneworld’s holistic retreat lies in the hills of Ubud, Bali – about 1.5 km away from the hustle and bustle of the village center. The eco-friendly retreat is peaceful and serene, bordered by a small creek to the west and surrounded by jungle and rice fields. And it is probably the only retreat centre in the world with a Palace in its backyard!

We offer 14 comfortable and spacious rooms, two swimming pools, dining room, a yoga shala open to nature as well as a spa where you can enjoy high quality treatments. You will find lush gardens and pavilions to relax and indulge in the beautiful views. Should you wish to explore Ubud during free time, we offer shuttle bus service.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace/balcony and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests’ ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years. See all the facilities.


The ancient wisdom of Ayurveda equates food next to God. The “prana” or energy needed for the existence is through food. The right quality and quantity of diet that is congenial to one’s constitution helps maintain good health. You will be served fresh, tasteful and healthy meals based on Ayurvedic dietary principles, including the six Ayurvedic tastes (sweet, salty, sour, pungent, bitter and astringent).


During this week we will offer a day for detox to cleanse your body by releasing and flushing out toxins with the help of ayurvedic massages and ayurvedic fasting diet (one day only).


Part of your journey is enjoying the luxury of our skilled therapist’s hands. You will experience the magic of two relaxing Ayurveda treatments which will soothe your body and mind. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.


The yoga offered in the retreat will be in accordance with the Ayurveda principles. The program will be a combination of asanas, pranayama and meditation. Dr. Aparna will also be giving a take-away yoga program to be done at home.


A new retreat happening every week led by experienced retreat leaders from Bali and abroad.
