Guest Reviews

Ubud is derived from the Balinese word Ubad, which means medicine to heal. My time here especially through the Escape the World retreat, has been just that medicine to my soul. Coming from New York with the most stressful job in finance, I was literally broken, my spirit needed mending. As a fellow retreater described, this isn’t just a retreat, it’s about building a family who cares about your true well-being. Iyan, Wayan and Claude invited us into their home, their lives and gave us the most beautiful experiences. I came here wanting to “Escape the World” and left appreciating its beauty by building hope, compassion and love for my self. Thank you for showing me the beauty this world has to offer. This was the best medicine of my life.

Finding the right retreat for you is not an easy choice, lots of options online. Oneworld Retreats is a true choice for oneself. Enjoying time to relax in a magical location with beautiful people, food, and nature. Everything is thought of, bringing one’s stay truly relaxing. Iyan, Wayan, and Claude with adding their own touch, makes us all feel intimate and comfortable. Thank you very much!

Marina, France


This retreat was a joy throughout. The peaceful companionship of the other participants was an unexpected pleasure. I felt safe and welcome every moment. A truly beautiful, peaceful, memorable experience.

Heather, Australia


I booked this retreat with high hopes of an oasis away from my hectic life in NYC and it far exceeded my expectations. The staffs were the friendliest, our retreat leader, Iyan was so joyful, uplifting and informative. The group was small enough to get to know everyone. And the food should win some kind of delicious health award. No photo can capture the absolute beauty at every turn inside the grounds. There are great, rice paddy views from the terrace (your own balcony), so much greenery and Hindu statues galore. Not to mention the spa is outstanding – one of the best I’ve even been to. I now feel deeply connected to my body more physically, mentally and spiritually. I cannot recommend Oneworld Retreats more to be enjoyed! Contact me if you want more details.

Bailey, USA


In one word? Nourishing. Claude, Iyan, Wayan and were knowledgeable, respectful, gracious. The spa treatments and the staff member were a highlight, as was the yoga, the food, the sacred springs, sunrise yoga overlooking mount Batur. The restorative yoga sessions were particularly appealing to me, Wayan and Iyan’s gentle connections were very beneficial. Overall, and awesome 6 days in Ubud, Bali and heaven at Oneworld Retreats. You rock!

Wendy, Australia


What an experience! This trip was a surprise for my mum and a chance for us to spend some time together since we live in different countries. It could not have been more perfect. The yoga was excellent and perfect paced for both beginner and more advanced yogis. Spa treatments were so relaxing especially the Chakra dara massage, but what really sets retreat apart is the attention to every tiny detail of your experience so that it truly feels like magic. A huge thank you to all of the staff and to Wayan, Iyan and Claude for creating a true paradise on the wonderful island of Bali.

Liz, USA


A blissful experience! The retreat provides an opportunity to disconnect and then reconnect on a perfect platform to embrace your whole being. You will leave feeling grounded and nourished mentally, spiritually, emotional, and physically. A true investment for your Self. Much love to the team of Oneworld Retreats.

Jennifer, USA


The quality of the accommodation, yoga, meditation, service and activities was top notch. My room view was breathtaking and peaceful. The food was healthy, nourishing and delicate. The yoga instructions were very present and in-tone with the student. Everything is thought of in advance to accommodate any guest needs. I did not have to concern myself with anything only relaxing and enjoying the retreat. Finally, I am so grateful that Wayan and Iyan shared their culture, invited us to the temple and into their villages. Also the resort staffs were endlessly kind.

Melanie, USA


I booked this retreat very last minute and it was the best decision I could have made during my stay in Bali. Not only do I feel restored, I am leaving here with an immerse fascination with Balinese culture and life. I also plan to adopt more routine meditation and yoga practices into my life.

Edward, USA


I had high expectations coming to Bali for the Escape The World retreat. Iyan, Wayan, Claude and rest of their team exceeded my expectations and then some. This is a once in a lifetime trip that I might have to replicate by coming back. The people you meet and the experiences you share are incredible and unforgettable. Everyone should take the time to escape the world for a week here!

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.

Your personalized itinerary will inform you in detail.

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.
