"Would love to return, already recommending to friends "
The staff genuinely care about every guest having a great time - they are friendly and easygoing and organised. They’ll go out of their way to be accommodating of guests.
There’s a lose schedule of activities with something for everyone - flexible according to group consensus. Doing yoga on a black sand beach and continuing with tai chi in the pouring rain (voluntarily) was an unforgettable highlight for all of our group!
It’s great that you can pick your own duration and start date. Overall it’s a small group size, with people arriving and departing most days, meaning plenty of new people to meet. Retreats are a fabulous way to meet diverse yet like-minded people; I went alone and came away with new friends from around the world. We had some brilliant conversations around the communal table!
Food is fabulous with plenty of variety. It was hard going back to feeding myself!
Yoga centres on sun and moon salutations with lots of repetitions. We also did meditation before and after. Generally learnt a lot about traditional Balinese practices and philosophies, which I feel is not easily accessible information. We were allowed to film and take notes.
The local area is gorgeous, and not too long a journey from anywhere in Bali. I signed up for a homestay, but due to a small number of guests, stayed in one of the bungalows in the main property. It was clean and well-maintained. Shower was good, though had small hot water heater - enough for two to shower for reasonable time.

"Great taste of real Bali life"
The setting was perfect amongst the rice fields, peaceful waking up to roosters to have a delicious breakfast followed by yoga, & a local activity (which gives you an amazing insight to the area & how the locals live). Back for a yummy lunch, free time & more yoga followed by yet another activity before dinner!
There is a wide choice of activities for you to choose & the staff will happily organise something specific for you.
The yoga is great, it is a very simple style compared to that I’m used to, the teachers will explain the history & reasoning behind the moves. Mixed with Balinese prayer, as well as some meditation it is the perfect place to switch off & unwind.
The rooms are comfortable, quiet & spacious.
If you need anything the staff will do their best to help & can organise drivers should you need.

"Beautiful and lovely staff"
I came for my birthday and the staff made an effort to make sure I had a special day. They gave me a very generous blessing. The setting was beautiful, so peaceful and green. The staff were very friendly and little Billy stole my heart. The yoga challenged me, even though I practice everyday. If you were a beginner it may have been a bit hard I suppose, but I loved it and enjoyed doing chanting and focusing on he chakras

Thank you for having us! It was an amazing experience to live far away from civilization, with welcoming and smiling staff and locals. It was the greenest place I’ve ever seen, and the yoga classes and activities met our expectations. And you will appreciate everything even more when you come back to crowded places in Bali.

Bali Retreats is located in a beautiful village surrounded by rice fields. It is the ultimate place to relax and enjoy the local life and nature of Bali. The quality of the retreat including the accomodation, staff, food, transport and activities is excellent! In particular I loved the activities; music class, drawing class, visiting a waterfal, and modern massage. It is lovely to see how people of the village work together to make your stay a wonderful experience. I was also lucky that I could visit a traditional ceremony. I had a great time at Bali Retreats!
