To me, this week of the “activate and release” retreat was my path to my inner Self, this place – Kumara is my temple, I lived this place and I loved this place, it was something magical!

Anne, Germany

Very professional and well organised from the minute I land in Bali. Being a first time solo traveller, I was very nervous, but everything was looked after. Spa treatments were absolutely amazing and I am going home feeling very relaxed and refreshed. The yoga studio is just beautiful, peaceful and calming overlooking the beautiful backdrop of the jungle. My room was extremely spacious and clean. The meals were absolutely delicious and catered for any special dietary requirements. The Yoga classes were catered for all levels and very enjoyable.

The teachers have lovely soul, have a huge passion for sharing what they love. With more time and practice to improve the program, it has the potential to be very popular. We felt your energy and eagerness throughout the week. The accommodation and staff were absolutely fantastic – very polite, patient, respectful and made an effort to know you, it is very appreciated. The activities were invigorating and overall have made a group of strangers become great friends by the end of the week. A big thank you to Claude, Tekok and the team for creating such a great environment for us.

Vivien, Australia

My time at Oneworld Retreats was a great introduction to Bali and yoga retreats. I came for the yoga but was pleasantly surprised by the spa, activities in and around Ubud, and the food! The staff at Kumara made our experience extremely personalised. Taking the time to learn everyone’s name and the accommodations were wonderful. I was introduced to a new kind of yoga and practiced with others who were undergoing a change on their lives, similar to me. I met some amazing people and I leave with great memories of Bali and a much deeper understanding of the culture.

Julia, USA

It was truly a very enjoyable yoga retreat. At times the yoga was difficult, but with the help of the teacher, it was made more enjoyable. The activities were also enjoyable. The staffs are all very friendly and you feel very welcomed to be here. The spa treatments are out of this world and they couldn’t be better. It is such a privilege to be part of such an amazing week.
