Guest Reviews

The perfect opportunity to take a pause in life and (re)think what it does one really want to get out of life: your dreams. The rooms, resort, staffs, Claude, Iyan and Desy; food, spa, trips: everything was just perfect, WOW!

Susanne, Netherlands


It was a beautiful week of pampering, focus and beauty. Participating in the Balinese rituals, yoga and workshop content provided a world away from the world in beautiful Bali. Could not ask for anything more.

Susan, Canada


An amazing experience! Iyan, Claude and the team took exceptional care of us. So much thought and detail went into this whole experience. I’ll definitely be back. Thank you

Tracey, Australia


It has been the most wonderful week. I really needed time and space away and I have been made to feel like a princess. Everyone is gracious and caring and high attention to details. I can’t thank the staff enough for taking such good care of me.

Kelly, Australia


An unexpected joy to immerse myself in this magnificent place and to go deeply within my self is such a privilege! The fog was lifted and I received clarity and energy for the realising my dream.

Kathryn, South Africa


Attention to detail in every sense of the word. I felt like I was surrounded by fairies ready and waiting to attend to all my needs in order for me to concentrate purely on myself. Bliss!

Megan, Australia


The power of this workshop is its simplicity and ability to focus the participant to achieve one’s objectives. It guides the mind form turbulent to calmer waters in order for one to gain clarity on one’s objectives/dreams. It is strategically structured traveling from JHB to Indonesia to have this experience. The brilliance of this workshop is the content, people and place and showing one the importance between one’s inter connectivity soul (spirit), mind and body.

Nicole, South Africa


Before I came here, I had some ideas but they were very vague. Also, because in your daily life, don’t spend much time thinking about your true dreams and goals. But during the week I became more focused on what I really want and what is important to me so thank you so much for this opportunity!

Eva, Germany


The experience is an investment in your wellbeing to take a moment in life to evaluate your life/self (and look inside yourself) and think about our future, which is a precious gift. Thank you. I have only been here for a week but I’ve gained so much.

Jennifer, Australia


It was a journey of the self through the self to the self. Just like yoga, it was a big milestone in my personal journey of self-development. A week shared with beautiful souls and great minds.

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.


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.


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 is Kumara’s famous 2,5 hours Ayurveda Chakra Dhara Massage. Other treatments are available onsite, you may wish to view our spa menu.
