Overview

Balinese people, their unique culture and luxuriant nature are the reasons why many travel magazines and organisations have named Bali as the world’s most beautiful island. The island has a magical that is not found anywhere else and Wayan would love to share the love for his island with you. Besides doing daily yoga, meditation, chanting and rituals, you will enjoy blissful spa treatments, discover the countryside of Ubud by walking the rice fields and by biking the back roads. You will also cook a Balinese meal in a traditional Balinese home and create a batik piece of art to take home.

Ayurvedic Chakra Dhara Massage – 2 ½ hour
Ayurveda is believed to be the oldest healing therapy. It is a holistic science more than three thousand years old and focuses on maintaining good health, preventing illness and reaching longevity through natural healing. 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!

It is absolutely indescribable! It was so much more than I expected it to be. Yoga, meditation, healthy food and spa treatment for a week, just love it! High quality on everything and the staff is really 5-star!

Linda, Sweden


Beyond my wildest dreams. Every detail was perfectly organized and the staff were incredibly friendly. Wayan’s classes were the highlight for me. He’s the best yoga teacher I have ever had and I loved how every class included meditation and pranayama as well as asana. I will be back! Beautiful people and experience.

Camille, USA


Better than I ever would have imagined. I never had the confidence to do something like this before. The whole package just spoke to me. I can’t stress how amazing Wayan is as a teacher. He has such amazing energy. Love the experience, love the food, the people. Love it!

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