Overview

If you enjoy walking and hiking, this retreat is a real treat for you. During the week, you will discover Bali on foot as we will take you on different walks every day. Some of them are close to Ubud, others take you up to a volcano or through amazing rice fields. In addition to these exhilarating treks, you will enjoy daily yoga or meditation, spiritual rituals, spa treatments, healthy food and much more. Truly a wonderful way to get to know this beautiful island.

The routes are chosen to accommodate most levels of participants. You do not need to be a very experienced hiker, only be reasonably fit and able to walk for a few hours (with breaks in between). All walks are accompanied by experienced guides.

See level of endurance for each day (1 to 5) in the itinerary.

It exceeded all my expectations! “Footprints in Bali” encompasses all that. Makes Ubud/ Bali so special. Yoga/walking/bike riding/trekking/spa treatments– it’s all wrapped up into one. An absolutely amazing retreat experience!

Maggie, New Zealand


This was the fourth yoga retreat I have participated in, worldwide, and it was by far the best and exceeded my expectations in every way.

Donna, USA


A great retreat to practice yoga, do outdoor activities and discover the wonderful island of Bali. The Kumara center is located in a peaceful and luxuriant environment, allowing one to fully relax and be in an introspective mode.

Valery, Switzerland


Absolutely incredible! My first ever retreat and I am so blown away as how above and beyond the entire team went to make this experience extremely special. Thank you so much!

Rhiannon, Australia


I have ONE WORD for Oneworld Retreats and it’s Divine. One of the best experiences I ever had when traveling. The staffs are the jewel of this hotel, the service and attention and help given during my stay is amazing. I was a queen just for a week and you made me feel like that and I thank you. I cannot praise this hotel enough. Thank you Iyan, Desy, Louise and the rest of the team for making my stay so special.

Vasva, Croatia


Amazing! A great experience, both relaxing and active, which opens up your heart, body and mind. Friendliness all over the place and meeting such nice people.

Footprints in Bali is a beautiful way to integrate body, mind and soul. Challenging but also rejuvenating. Thank you!

Beth, Australia


All in one: Yoga, relaxing and spa, great food, really pleasant environment. You will feel like a princess and still have a workout.

Anne, Netherlands


A much needed break from the world at home to restore my batteries. Every need and want catered for. I could ask for nothing more.

Rosemary, Australia


The yoga, food and feel of the retreat were fantastic and everything is better than you expect. Found the beach day a great change, just thought it went on too long.

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.
