"Incredible Retreat "

This place is amazing. If you want to meet new friends and learn about local Balinese culture away from the big towns, this is it! Everyone here treats you like family. The food is incredible. They go out of their way to host and make sure you’re happy. It’s a very caring atmosphere. The Balinese traditional yoga is quite balancing and inclusive for all levels from beginner to advanced.

Also the massages are great! I enjoyed the local shaman and the traditional healer. Overall a very rewarding and great experience that I highly recommend.

"Wonderful stay"

Lovely staff, great yoga teachers, good food and many activities to choose from in your free time. The whole village is involved in activities which I really appreciated and the location by the rice terraces is beautiful. Make sure to expect balinese yoga if you go, it is good but different from popular yoga styles.

"Over and above my expectations..."

I had a wonderful 3 days at BaliTrees. I loved the fact that everything was so chilled and that you could come and go as you choose. The location was beautiful, and the staff were extremely helpful. The yoga was very spiritual and different to the western yoga i've become accustomed to - definitely in a good way! I'll be back soon - next time for a week.

"Gorgeous location"

The location set amid the rice paddies was amazing. The yoga held up high on a platform surrounded by wind chimes was gorgeous. Very relaxing. The cultural village activities were interesting and achievable as I am an older lady. The staff were very helpful and the rooms pleasant & comfortable. It was a really lovely experience.

"I never wanted to leave again!"

The Mix of everything was perfect! I had a homestay at bapak Wayans house down the street. He has a beautiful garden and we got up every morning @5am to see the sunrise. Than I went to the yogaclass and after yoga we had delicious breakfast in the group @the retreat. The group was amazing and the stuff is so kind and wellcoming. We were joking around all the time or/and had good conversations about our experience at the meditation, in life, in Bali....

Drei, Yosi, Adi and Krishna told us so much about the culture, religion and about the village life. One night there was a ceremony at the temple and we were allowed to join. Dewi told us what to do at the ceremony.

I will really miss my homestay at bapak Wayan. Every day I learned so much and it was so lovely how much fun everybody had to open their doors and hearts! I will come back as soon as I can and stay even longer.

"Beautifully situated in the rice fields of Bali "

- Beautifully situated in the rice fields of Bali

- We liked the spiritual part of the Yoga and that it was not just seen as a workout.

- a lot of activities that can be done during the "Village activity" time. (Very interesting was the visit with a shaman as well as a traditional Balinese massage).

"Wonderful"

Wonderful experience, spent 2 nights here and made some amazing connections with other there. Got to meet people from all over the world and do fun activities with them. It was less yoga based but more of a cultural experience, the Balinese food and people were very friendly and amazing!

"Perfect Yoga Retreat"

Balitrees was an excellent integration of relaxation and learning to practice Balinese yoga with group cultural immersion activities, such as learning how to make coconut oil, learning about rice farming and learning about Balinese music and dance. All the staff at Balitrees and the people who live and work in the village are warm and generous, and genuinely happy to help and answer questions. The daily schedule is well-planned, but still flexible enough to allow individuals to do their own thing. The food is delicious and plentiful! Thank you to everyone at Balitrees for the hospitality and unforgettable experience!

"A must do when in Bali!"

This yoga retreat was a wonderful experience! It really helps you get out of your bubble and meet new people. Its also a great way to experience the Balinese culture that's almost impossible to do as a tourist in the city. The yoga sessions are meant for beginners but can also push you if you are experienced. I would highly recommend it!

"3 day/2 night beginners retreat"

My friend and I just completed a retreat that we both enjoyed very much, the yoga was challenging at times but enjoyable and suitable for beginners. The staff were all lovely, the food was delicious and the homestay at Red Roses was a great insight into village life in a beautifully untouched part of Bali.

"Accomodation from Umadhatu Resort was great"

It was a nice experience for me and for my bestfriend . Our accomdation in Umadhatu Resort was great because all the staffs were so friendly and treated us like a family. Special thanks to Mr Wayan who cooked for us everyday a simple but yummy meal. To Putu Adi Wirawan and Etar who took care for us on the road and took good pictures for us.Umadhatu accomodation was perfect to unwind and would recommend it.

"Great mix of yoga and culture"

I loved the layout of the days. each day consists of two yoga sessions and two cultural activities. Fantastic for a beginner. I stayed 4 days and was not ready to leave. There is so many cool things to do. The food was outstanding, the people were easy to get along with, and the workers really would do anything for you. I was there over New Year’s Eve and they made an effort for us to enjoy the evening with local performances and they even drove us somewhere special to view the fireworks.

"Do yourself a favour and visit this place"

I thought it was such a great experience. I learnt a lot about the Balinese culture and it was a good introduction to yoga. All of the staff and other travellers I met there were so friendly. The location and views were so beautiful. I stayed in Dewi's homestay and my room was beautiful and clean.

"Authentic Balinese yoga & village experience"

Everyone in the village was friendly, helpful and accommodating. It was a great way to not only learn about authentic Balinese yoga and meditation practices through the help of very talented instructors, but also to experience the real Bali hospitality and lifestyle. I especially loved the food and thoroughly enjoyed the activities on offer.

"Amazing place, loved every second!"

Such a lovely friendly place, everyone is just wonderful! If you're looking for a real feel of Bali, just local people, local food and local culture... this is the place for you! I had never done yoga before, but i througherly enjoyed the two sessions a day (and the meditation) - amazing instructors! Beautiful setting, in a tiny village in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by rice fields! Couldn't recommend this place enough!

"Hidden gem for the curious yoga newbie"

Krishna as an instructor was very skilled, funny and patient. She took her time with everyone to help them achieve their goals. It was a calm and relaxed environment, a great place to learn. All the staff does everything to make you feel comfortable and the food is very good. It’s placed in a very peaceful area and you for sure get to just relax and try out yoga. There’s even more to it than yoga and meditation, there’s different activities to do to really come close to the locals and get an authentic experience.

The most peaceful and recharging 5 days of my life. Waking up with roosters, sleeping with sound of crickets, Amazing yoga and meditation sesions with Chrishna even for me as a super beginner it was easy to understand and follow. I have no words to describe how helpfull and kind people there are. I love the tours too. We learned so much about their culture. Cant wait to go back. Thank you Balitrees for everything! 🙏🏼

"You get so much more for your money"

The location is totally unique. No tourists, no noise, just calmness and nature at its best. Perfect location for yoga. A lot of trips were included as well. The instructors are so lovely and they really do their best to fulfill all your wishes. We even got driven on a mountain to watch the sunrise! A massage is included, too.

"A lovely, real Bali experience"

The yoga instruction was great. Our teacher, Chrishna was kind, funny, helpful and taught us so much more than just yoga asanas. I really enjoyed learning about the history of Balinese yoga. The location is far in the village, which provided a great escape and an opportunity to see a beautiful side of Bali. The food was good, and the extra activities were very interesting. Everyone was very kind, and overall I would definitely recommend this retreat. A great value for what you pay.

Leuke mensen

De yoga was zeer interactief en de instructeur Krisna zorgde voor een prettige sfeer. De activiteiten waren erg leuk, ik raad de waterval en schommel aan. Ik zat zelf niet in het retreat maar 5 min rijden verderop, hele vriendelijke mensen en heerlijk geslapen. Verder: prachtige locatie. Ben blij dat ik toch wat verder heb gereisd om dit deel van Bali te kunnen zien!

"Pures Glück inmitten der Reisfelder"

Wunderschöne Lage mitten zwischen den Reisfeldern, wahnsinnig herzliches und hilfsbereites Personal. Man fühlt sich als wäre man Teil einer großen Familie. Leckers Essen, Meditation, Yoga und viele verschiedene Aktivitäten wie bspw. ein Kochen mit den Einheimischen, eine balinesische Massage, Reis ernten oder ein Ausflug zu einem Wasserfall. Fazit: absolut zu empfehlen
