    AYURVEDIC CROWN MASSAGE

    Relax upright, supported by your therapist’s hands as they massage warm oil into your head and upper body in a specific, rhythmic rippling motion that dispels tension and allows you to surrender to sensation.

    A fresh hibiscus leaf mask is then applied to your hair and your head is wrapped in a banana leaf and an arm massage is performed while you relax for 25 minutes. In the final steps, your therapist’s skilled fingers stimulate circulation to awaken the spirit as the mask is removed and your hair washed and towel or blow dried.

The retreat located in a beautiful setting.

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.
