Overview

This retreat is designed to bring your energy levels back up, to give time to recharge the batteries, to forget the busy daily routine for a while and connect with yourself in a more conscious way. In a natural paradise at Oneworld Retreats, practicing twice daily yoga, nurturing your body with healthy food, enjoying activities and blissful spa treatments, you will find the space to center yourself, to find peace of mind and to rediscover the joy of living in the present moment.

The yoga practice is put together of a mix of styles – beginning with stretches to prepare the body, focusing on the alignment of the asanas and then putting it all together in a flowing sequence. Some challenging asanas are part of the class to help you break out of your comfort zone – this can be very refreshing and highly exhilarating.

Guest Reviews

Life changing experience, challenging physically + emotionally, rejuvenating + restorative, Just what I needed, you have got to go!

Emma, Australia


“A Boost of Energy” yoga in the morning was intense, but right for bed time. Everything was just right! Perfect!

Lissy, USA


A retreat like no other! My second time around and Oneworld Reterats never disappoint. After one week at the retreat, I feel spiritually rejuvenated from the amazing spa treatments, yoga practice and retreat activities. There are no words to explain how wonderful this little piece of heaven is. Thank you and I look forward to visiting again.

Marianna, Australia


The best ever gift to myself – A truly wonderful experience. Karina was so caring, thoughtful and a wonderful teacher. I feel blessed to have met her and Daisy who was also so kind and always with a smile.

Wendy, Australia


Yoga teacher top class – and Daisy assistance excellent. Karina – so professional, world class No 1.

Robyn, Australia


The entire staff at Oneworld Retreats embraces each member of the retreats like family for the week. Karina’s extensive yoga background was invaluable in deepening our yoga and meditation practice. All of the Balinese rituals were so very magical and truly a highlight of the entire retreat. Thank you for a truly wonderful retreat! It was so nice we had the flexibility in our schedule due to the rain. I will definitely look into future retreats, as well as recommend to friends.

Maria, USA


An amazing yogic journey alongside cultural richness of Bali. I feel very blessed to have experienced so many sacred Balinese ceremonies. Karina is so knowledgable, she incorporates several different yoga styles with love. The local staff team were incredible.

Jason, Canada


Karina is a wonderful teacher. She builds with tact, starting with the fundamentals and working your body up. I was doing poses I never had the courage to try before! She is truly a gift to the yoga community.

Kimberly, Canada


It was an awesome experience. I enjoyed the time so much – I love the quiet of this place, the pleasure that I have to come to Bali for. Thank you for having me.

Sabrina, Germany


A wonderfully revitalizing experience, a chance to meet like-minded women from across the globe, exchange life experience and ideas. We shared moving experience and made bounds that may last for a long time. Recommend it highly!

RETREAT CENTER

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.

Each room is air-conditioned, has its own terrace/balcony and bathroom. Comfortable yet unpretentious. For our guests’ ultimate serenity, we welcome guests of a minimum age of 14 years. See all the facilities.


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. Most of 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

Part of your journey is enjoying the luxury of our skilled therapist’s massage treatments. You will enjoy a 110 min. Mandi Lulur – Floral Bath, a 17th century Javanese royal treatment. A traditional body massage followed by a body scrub with turmeric, sandal wood and rice powder, an exfoliation of yogurt to eliminate toxins, and a fragrant blossom bath. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.
