Guest Reviews

I have been doing yoga at home for many years & hadn’t ever really found a class that kept me coming back—possibly haven’t looked hard enough or was turned off by aspects of the yogi culture in Ubud—but have always loved my own private practice. So this week with Iyan & Wayan at Oneworld Retreats Kumara Sakti has been a complete eye-opener on how you can feel supported & pushed to go deeper into your practice by the right teachers.

The whole experience has been flawless—from the actual place with its stunning views & feeling of seclusion, the insanely delicious food (no starving here), to the nurturing & relaxing spa treatments that compliment your 3-4 hours of daily yoga practice. What makes this retreat special too is the connection to Bali—we went for a purification at Tirta Empul, did sunrise yoga overlooking Batur, bathed in hot springs, rode & walked through rice fields & learnt how to make offerings—things I’ve always wanted to do but haven’t had the time.

At the end of this week, I feel stronger, refreshed, more centred & ready to keep up my practice at home. A massive thank you to Claude, Iyan & Wayan for the opportunity to experience this. I highly recommend this retreat for anyone wanting to get into a yoga practice or who hasn’t been practising for awhile & wants to get back into a regular practise— it also makes the perfect escape from the pressures of everyday life & gives you a little time out from it all to recalibrate.

Oneworld Retreats continues to delight. Kumara is a tranquil haven, that is truly Bali. This is the place to relax and revive. The Yoga is great under the skillful tutorial of iyan and Wayan. The food is absolutely delicious. All the staffs are gentle, kind and caring and the spa treatments are divine. This combination ensure a wonderful experience that should not be missed.

This was my second Escape the World retreat and it is everything that the title promises. It is a beautiful chance to get away from stress in daily life, in a place full of silence, kindness, soft words and color sounds, touches and tastes that nourish the soul. This place is a gift for everyone who is looking for opportunities to grow and enjoy deep introspection. The great yoga sessions, the Pranayama and the other activities, especially the ceremony in Tirta Empul help to make this a really round experience for body and soul. It is truly healing and stays within long after we return to our countries.

The Escape the World was truly an amazing experience that benefits all whether you are looking to clean yourself or treat yourself. The team/staffs are friendly, genuinely care about your needs, and support you with any specific request. As the retreat comes to an end, I felt replenished and grateful. I was able to really experience the people, the culture, and cuisine at Oneworld Retreats.

The Escape the World retreat gives participants the attentive and freedom to explore inner self and yet experience excellent yoga experience couple with other balanced external activities that allows you to relax, explore yoga techniques and Balinese culture.

Simon, Australia


Beautiful, spiritual and magical experience in a fabulous setting. Excellent spa treatments with the Ayurvedic Chakra Dhara and Floral Bath. The yoga was also a fantastic blend, appropriate for beginners up to advanced with lots of option to modify if needed. The food is plentiful and of an extremely high quality catering to every guests’ need and all this is blend together with beautiful activities and once in a lifetime experience. Plus you may arrive at the retreat alone but you leave with a lighted heart and fabulous new friend for life.

Emma, Australia


Paradise on earth! Such a beautiful, grounding and serene place. Iyan’s teaching is second to none. I have been teaching myself for about eight years and he is far one of the best teachers I have encountered. He brings all part of yoga in, pranayama, meditation, asana, and my new favorite yoga of devotion! Feel re-grounded in my spirit. Iyan, Claude and Wayan were warm, open, and so loving. I feel blessed to have shared this week with them.

Laurin, Australia


The retreat center is such a special place – from the moment I arrived I have felt so grateful that I found my way here. Iyan and Wayan both have such beautiful and joyful spirits – they are amazing teachers in the yoga studio and throughout all the retreat activities. They have shared so much with us about the culture of Bali, adding so much more to the experience of being on a yoga retreat. I could not recommend this retreat more highly to both beginners and very advanced students of yoga and meditation. If you want to experience a wonderful week connecting your body and heart and mind, and sinking more deeply into the magic of Bali, you could not find a better place to do it.

Heather, USA


I am very happy to have experienced so much love, honesty and purity on this retreat. The love I found in every meal and activities were all organized so well and had an unbelievable sense for detail. I never get the impression we were just another group on a retreat. Thank you very much.

Nicoline, Netherlands


It was enlightening to know so many interesting facts about Balinese culture. I really liked that we had one yoga class overlapping the Volcano, an added charm to the retreat. All activities are relevant and very well organized, which make the entire flow very smooth. I enjoyed daily new massage in my room. The retreat leader are very accommodating people and radiate positivity. I feel like I received a dose of positive energy from Wayan and Iyan. The location is unique, spa therapists are absolutely wonderful.

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.

Through meditation and yoga, people from around the world and all levels of society have reached incredible results in balancing the body, mind and spirit, therefore achieving more focus and being in control over life’s daily events.

The yoga we offer is Hatha and it combines the precision of Iyengar with the dynamism of Ashtanga. Participants are introduced to Pranayama, Asanas, relaxation techniques and rituals. During the contemplative meditation sessions you watch your thoughts, without any intention to either control or repress them. Just simply watch and be aware of each movement of the thought and see them move without you being moved by them.
