A truly personal and reflective opportunity. The staff were beautifully kind. Nothing was too hard. My yoga & understanding of meditation had grown each day. I have taken a deeper appreciation of their importance in everyday life. Iyan & Wayan are both beautiful souls. Thank you for such a special week!

This is my third retreat with Oneworld Retreats and I have not been disappointed. Each visit allowed me to feel closer to my spiritual self and Kumara is like my spiritual home. The yoga, treatment and food are energised with love, kindness and compassion. It reminds me to keep treating myself this way. Iyan and Wayan are beautiful people and I love being taught yoga by them. Wayan’s adjustments are amazing.

I really love the retreat and the meals were completely amazing. The time spent for questions to better my practice were really remarkable & I loved all 3 Wayans.

This week has been magical. The place is so breathtakingly beautiful that you feel calm as soon as you enter the precinct. Every tiny detail is considered and nothing is ever too hard or too much for the beautiful staff. You wake for yoga every morning by someone ringing a little bell outside your door so there is no need to ever turn your phone on. Sunrise yoga by the volcano, bike ride through the local villages and hours of spa treatments – all make for a perfect week. Couldn’t thank the team enough.

An amazing, perfect week. From the moment I arrived the wonderful staff took care of every little detail in an effortless way – from the meals to the incredible spa treatments and the little flower left on my bed each day. Iyan and the two Wayans are brilliant yoga instructors. The sessions were challenging and I feel they have really helped me deepen my yoga practice and appreciate the place yoga has in my life. I don’t want to leave. But I will be back.

Amy, New Zealand

All my expectations were exceeded by your fabulous team! I have never experienced so much love and positive energy before. Wayan and Tekok were so helpful and the activities and yoga made my holiday unforgettable. I came on my own and I am leaving with new good friend. The letting go ceremony was a great finish to the outstanding program. Everyone should put “Escape the World” in Ubud on their budget list. I loved every second of it. Thanks to all staff for making my holiday so special.
