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

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.

Mag, India


The overall experience was higher than my expectations. Our yoga teacher, Wayan was truly involved in everyday and every lesson or activity of the week (as well as Iyan). The place and the environment is so peaceful that you disconnect from busy life as quickly as you step in on your first day. The staff is extremely friendly (reception/service/spa). The week of yoga session/activities, food, spa treatments was so well organized. I would definitely recommend ONEWORLD retreats and would love to come back one day. Thanks to everyone (Claude included) for the great experience to immerse my self in Bali.

Nicole, Switzerland


This retreat was a great week to become one with yourself. The setting is magical giving you a sense of isolation and escape from the hardle of daily life. We left with a sense that we actually got a feel of that special Balinese culture while at the same time nurturing our mind, body, and soul. I recommend this for anyone seeking a memorable experience.

Mathias, Denmark


A life-changing retreat for the body, mind and soul. Simply amazing with the right amount of cultural experiences and cuisines! Delicious.

Annie, USA


The retreat was a perfect mix of yoga, cultural immersion, a time for self reflection and a time to open up to and learn about other people. Every little thought out details made the retreat impactful and enjoyable.

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
