Join this retreat as you will be far from the madding crowds and this makes for the perfect retreat. Staying at Bali Lush transports you back to a time when rice fields dominated most of the island of Bali. You will be immersed in the traditions and beliefs of the rice farming village of Manikyang. Standing in the presence of Mount Batukaru, you will get the chance to explore the village as it is one of the hidden treasures of Tabanan regency.
During the retreat, you will be staying at the Bali Lush Resort. The eco resort in Bali offers three gorgeous free-standing bungalows that include a perfect fusion of Indonesian architecture and modern western comforts. While passionate about providing an authentic experience, Bali Lush don’t believe you have to sacrifice the comforts of home.
The guest rooms include air conditioning, a mini bar, an in-room safe, flat screen televisions, and DVDs for those days you want to stay in. Antique teak lima sans and repurposed traditional rice storage cabins offer accommodation for up to 14 guests over four rooms. The Frog bungalow is the very first cabin on the property, this repurposed Gladak (rice storage hut) accommodates two guests in a queen bed or two single beds.

I Gede Arya Adiwiguna, or as people call him, Pak Adi, developed his love of yoga at just 13 years old and has been improving on his practice over the last 25 years. He is a student of Ki Nantra, the Great Master Yogi of the Seruling Dewata Organization located on Mount Batukaru. After working for 20 years on cruise ships, Adi has returned to his home village of Sesandan, a 100% Balinese-Hindu farming village, with the intention of preserving and passing on the ancient traditions of Balinese yoga and the martial arts practice Silat.
The retreat will take place in Bali, Indonesia. Bali Lush is located two-hours drive north of Bali’s Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS). The village is made up of 100% Balinese-Hindu families. Most families farm the land producing rice, cacao, cloves, bananas, coconuts, and other tropical fruits. They also farm livestock such as cows, pigs, chickens, and ducks.
You will be served with daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You are encouraged to pick your own fruit from any of the 200+ tropical fruit trees. Select your own vegetables and collect your own eggs from the hen house for your morning breakfast.
The staff makes fresh bread daily and many other bakery treats such as crumpets, sweet breads, and cakes. Coconut milk and spice pastes are also made fresh for authentic Balinese, Indonesian, and Thai dishes. Western, gluten free, and vegan options are also available.
You can enjoy daily walks through rice terraces to nearby waterfalls and be greeted by the friendly Balinese as they go about their daily lives.
