Besides doing daily yoga, meditation, chanting and rituals, you will enjoy blissful spa treatments, discover the countryside of Ubud by walking the rice fields and by biking the back roads.

Ayurvedic Chakra Dhara Massage – 2 ½ hour
Ayurveda is believed to be the oldest healing therapy. It is a holistic science that is more than three thousand years old and focuses on health prevention, longevity and natural healing. An important part of the Ayurveda massage is called Chakra Dhara and consists of dripping warm herbal oil on the chakras (key energy points) in order to balance the energy flow and purify the body, mind and spirit. The therapist skillfully treats your body with an array of repetitive and slow movements such as kneading, squeezing and rubbing, resulting in the elimination of toxins and other organs’ impurities. The results are unbelievably good!

Guest Reviews

I cannnot say enough wonderful things about this amazing experience. I was really blown away in all areas – cultural, spiritual, crafting, exercise, art, dance and silence. Wayan is an expert, advanced, special teacher. I feel blessed to have been his student. I feel very fulfilled. I will take this experience with me the rest of my life. All the staff has also been amazing.

Immerse yourself in Bali was the best treat I could give to myself. I enjoyed every second since the morning I opened the door of my room and see the stunning view from my balcony. All the settings are just beautiful. This was definitely the best way to get inside the Balinese culture and to do the “must” in Bali. Wayan is an amazing person and an amazing yoga teacher.

Itza, Mexico


Immerse Yourself In Bali” offered so much in six days! We had a variety of activities from cooking class, batik class, bike riding, to the more spiritual yoga, meditation and offering rituals. With the help of all the staff, the retreat runs smoothly – in fact, the staffs are always one step ahead. Wayan is a beautiful soul who led us through the week, guiding us to reflect and be in the moment. This retreat gave me time to relax and reflect and I realized I am exactly where I am meant to be. Also, the spa treatments and the feast for every meal truly made me feel like a queen! Thank you for everything!

Kristin, Canada


I wanted to experience Bali. We travelled around the island, saw the towns, people etc, but nothing came close to the experience we had during this week. I truly felt like I got a taste for the culture. The food was amazing, the rituals and lectures really gave me a sense of being part of the culture. Everyday, we were treated like royalty and like family. This will go down as one the best experiences of my life. Thank you Wayan and Iyan for sharing this with us.

Juan, USA


The retreat was an absolutely wonderful experience! The daily yoga sessions, offerings, massages, rituals, the view from my room and the activities, it all made me immersed in Bali more than I expected. Thanks to all the staff at ONEWORLD retreats for making this experience a very special one and one to never forget! Namaste.

Natasja, Netherlands


It is an amazing and fulfilling week. The yoga practice combined with the wonderful inclusion and immersion into Balinese culture and religion led me to 24/7 type of experience. This made my trip to Bali into one of my lifetime memories.

Gary, USA


Immerse yourself in Bali is a perfect retreat for everybody of any age. I am 20 and even if I was with elder people, I loved it! The yoga sessions are all unique and the activities are just perfect to learn more about Balinese culture during those moments. Your day will be full and you can relax at the spa treatments. Wayan the teacher is the best, you can see how passionate he is and will be there for you, happy to explain anything about yoga or the Balinese culture. The place is just as peaceful as you will imagine.

Oriani, Switzerland


This retreat was pure bliss and peace. It allowed for self-reflection as well as connecting with nature. The people are just heartfelt both inside and out! Definitely a hidden paradise. Thank you so much!

Anita, Canada


I have never been so taken care of in my life! The staff was amazing, and the retreat was even more luxurious than I imagined! Wayan and Iyan were very knowledgeable about many yoga techniques and different types of meditation. Other students were friendly and excited. The spa treatments were incredible! I was truly impressed and it was a once in a lifetime experience. I will be back!

Kate, USA


This was my second trip to Bali and my first ONEWORLD retreats – Immerse yourself in Bali deepened my appreciation for the culture and beliefs of Balinese people. Wayan’s warmth and understanding of and love his people lent authenticity to the experience. He is a capable yoga teacher and his personal strengths go far beyond that. The hospitality I experienced this week goes well beyond all expectations. Beautiful place, lovely people – add yoga inspiration and understanding. And our world becomes wider and stronger! So much love. Thanks for curating such a memorable experience.

RESORT

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.

YOGA AND MEDITATION

The meditation and yoga sessions are a soft approach to what may become part of one’s daily life. 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.


MEALS

Our chefs are experienced and eager to offer you the freshest, healthiest and most tasteful meals, infused with love. Your special wishes and dietary requirements are taken care of whenever possible. All your meals are included and most of them are eaten together with the group in the beautiful jungle dining room but sometimes are also served in the privacy of your own balcony or at an outside location. Your personalized itinerary will inform you in detail.


SPA
