Ayurveda is believed to be the oldest healing therapy.

An important part of this Ayurveda massage is called Chakra Dhara and consists of dripping warm herbal oil on the chakras—the key energy points—in order to balance the energy flow and purify the body, mind and spirit. The therapist skillfully treats your body with an array of repetitive and slow movements such as kneading, squeezing and rubbing, resulting in the elimination of toxins and impurities. The results are unbelievably good!

Guest Reviews

I came to Oneworld Retreats to escape the world and I stepped into paradise. The staff, the details, the place, the massages, the group and especially Iyan and Desy have outwitted to me. The place is magic. I found more than I was looking for–freedom and love and much more.

Nathalie, Taiwan


Oneworld Retreats provides an opportunity to unplug from the world and connect with yourself. It doesn’t matter whether you are a yogi or a beginner, the programs are designed to give you these opportunities in ways that work for you. Claude, Iyan and the entire team treat you like family – every detail is thought of and you cannot imagine a paradise more calming and beautiful than Kumara. I loved it so much I am already planning to come back next year!

Melissa, USA


The Oneworld Retreats Escape the World was so much more than I have ever dreamed of. Just enough active days combined with relaxation, spa treatments, yoga, meditation, all in a very beautiful and spiritual environment. Staff is attentive and kind, the resort is filled with little surprises! Loved it.

Joy, USA


Escape the World is the quintessential retreat experience for those looking for re-enter and reconnect with self. I was able to completely disconnect from the chaos and noise of everyday life and take part in this life changing week. I am so grateful to the entire staff for everything they did to make this an unforgettable experience. Thank you, thank you, and thank you!

Robyn, USA


The care and attention that goes into the experience at Oneworld Retreats is unlike anything else I have personally experienced before. They strike the perfect everything. From the paradise that is property to the caring competent and friendly staff, the delicious and healthy meals and the thoughtfulness and attention put into the yoga classes and excursions. You can really tell this place is Iyan and Claude’s baby.

Trevor, Canada


If you want a perfect balance between a retreat and a vacation, I highly recommend Escape the World program. I learned a lot both of myself and the Balinese culture. Everyone from the staff to teacher to the students were so friendly and welcoming. My favourite experience for the whole week was the bike ride. Everything was truly unique and inspiring. Terima kasih. Thank you.

Stephanie, Canada


What memorable time! Well thought out program with amazing details of activities. Staff’s dedication, kindness and courtesy are delightful, a big thank you to Iyaan, Wayan, Claude and their teams for making the time at Kumara so special and unforgettable.

Katrina, Switzerland


The name Escape the World really sums up the experience; A week full of wonderful people , relaxation, peacefulness and good vibes only and a place where the only worries are if you will be able to eat all the amazing food and how to fit in another one of the amazing spa treatments. And more than that you really get a glimpse at Balinese life, their traditions and their hospitality. If traveling alone, it is the perfect place to meet likeminded people from all over the world. I think I have never felt this relaxed before and am a bit anxious to enter the “real” world again. And if it all gets too much again out there, I will be back for sure.

Katharina, Germany


Yoga, silence, meditation to escape and just enough activities to keep you in touch with Bali.

Dominique, Switzerland


I could write all day and still not be able to convey the depth of Escape the world. Unexpected delight and treasure at every turn from the entire team, I feel like part of their family now. Did I mention the fun? A lot of fun with new and diverse friend from all over the world. Finally a healing experience. I would recommend Oneworld Retreats to anyone and everyone.

Peggy, Australia

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 therapists’ hands. Inclusive are Kumara’s famous 2,5 hours Ayurvedic Chakra Dhara Massage and a Relaxing Massage. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.


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.
