    Our venue is built on 2000 square meters and built of local stone,wood and terrazzo sourced an Bali and Java.The house uses a combination of traditional Balinese features such as the thatched sun-grass roof,and outdoor bathrooms,combined with clean site lines,recessed features for art and statues and modern lighting.Water plays an important part in the design of the house with a large Koi fish pond separating the living and dining pavilions.We believe in living with nature ,hence the use of open pavilions,sliding doors to the bedrooms and natural ventilation.

    Every room is completed:

    The King size of King Koil bed

    The retreat aims at making you stop and digest everything that happened to you in the past year. You need some time to stay with yourself and give a break to a busy life, daily routine, hard work, eating disorder, lack of movement, and bad habits. If you want to flow into the New Year with a clear body, feeling lighter, healthier, and balanced, this is your chance to clear your mind, and an amazing start of the New Year.

    The guides have carefully created this unique program specially for those who are looking for something new, who want to change their life for the better, be well educated, and live a long, happy life. Take up a purification ceremony with the higher priestess of Bali. Visit the sacred holy waters, for offerings and prayers at the main temple to clear your energy, purify your aura, and heal your soul. Feel the magic of the moment in the present and open up to hear the voice of your heart.

    The detox program is created to remove old waste and toxins that your bodies store. With creative raw food meals and three days of organic green juice fasting, be sure to see yourself losing weight, having glowing skin, tight tissues, and simple shine from the inside out. Yoga practice, breath work, and meditations will take your mind and body to a next level of flexibility and openness.

    Mindful Vinyasa flow will be used to move and open your body slowly and deeply, to give you a new understanding of how to perfume asana in your own unique way and flow with ease. Intention setting meditation will help you to find out your main goal and desires, and take them into your subconscious level. The team will try their best to make your visit to Bali an unforgettable event you have never had before.

    Inspirational and spiritual trips like purification water ceremony with Bali higher priestess, Bali main mother temple or Pura Besakih, and Holy Water Springs and cleansing ceremony are a part of the retreat package.

    • Vlada Omsome

      These retreats are my offering to the world. Everything that I teach whether it is about food, nutrition, yoga practice, spirituality or life attitude is coming from the depth of my heart and years of huge self-work and own practice. Yoga is a powerful ancient method for self-growth. As a fundamental knowledge about asana and pranayama, I use Iyengar yoga approach as it is great for bringing one’s body into general alignment. Women’s practice approach by Gita Iyengar is something that I use when working with women of all ages.

    The retreat takes place in Ubud, the heart of Bali. Ubud is the place that attracts lots of yogis and spiritual guides. This place is full of mystery, consciousness, and great inspiration. It has Balinese temples, picturesque roads for walking, rice paddies views, and peace. You can feel its heartbeat. The location is so comfortable that you may reach waterfalls, mountains, and beaches easily.

    The private high-comfort villa is a 10-minute drive from the main street. Surrender and enjoy the sounds of birds, rest well, and breath fresh air.

      "I didn't have any expectations before coming to Bliss Body Retreat for 7 days of raw food and Yoga retreat. Looking through their web-site, I decided this is what I really loan for that moment. "

      "And literally, this retreat changed my life in different perspectives, starting from the nutritious part and till spiritual inner transformation. I just can't find words to describe Vlada's approach in everything, it seems like she is putting all her heart into this amazing events. "

      "From the first day, you feel like you are at home, good vibes and atmosphere is everywhere, I am pretty sure, that;s why the process of detoxification went so smooth for me. "

      "Getting up early to catch first sunlights, practicing Yoga with a jungle panorama and finishing this morning routine with a fresh and cold Young coconut water. "

      "My favorite part was educational - raw food workshops and seminar. Personal, I feel it is an integral part of such events, 'cause you are not just spending a good time, but you are actually learning so many important things and broadening your mind in the sphere of healthy eating and implementing it in a daily city life. "

      ""

      "And last but not least, purification ceremonies at Water Temples are just out of this world. Cleaning your mind from the old unnecessary stuff was highly important for me in that days, and it helps you a lot as well during detox. "

      ""

      "Taking everything into consideration, I would totally recommend this retreat to everyone!!! Just don't think too long as they have limited availability. "

      "The hotel staff is extremely friendly, the room was very large and clean and the pool and spa had everything required."

      "It's a bit away from the center of Ubut but if you walk down the street from the hotel towards Ubud you have in a distance of 300 m a very nice selection of restaurants and bars. "

      "Loved the stay there and would always come back"

      "I have been fortunate to experience many yoga & detox retreats all over the world."

      "I will say this was one of the best private retreat experiences."

      "From the dedicated communication before arriving to ensure my needs - coupled with the respect for my personal space and schedule flexibility when needed was well addressed and balanced. "

      "Aside from the beauty and notable energy of Ubud - the care afforded to me by Vlada & Olha to gauge my day to day needs and ensure I was making the best of the experience was carefully thought out and well structured. To be honest, empathic. "

      "The personal yoga training by Vlada was especially valuable, she quickly tuned into my strengths and weaknesses both physical & mental as they varied daily and tailored the twice daily yoga sessions accordingly. This renewed my dedication and has served me well in the months since with my practice with much better understanding - a truly remarkable yoga teacher."

      "Meanwhile, Olha (Angel) was always alongside taking care of all the big, small important things just when needed - her raw food preparation & juice mixing is truly impressive."

      "Outside the meditations, massage, reiki and an amazing Spa experience, the implementation of local cultural experiences, shared with both knowledge and passion, just added to the mix."

      "Don't be fooled by these two lovely ladies youth, they are old wise souls genuinely dedicated and skilled to ensuring your well being and happiness. "

      "Go open and willing, you will receive invaluable gifts and teachings."

      "I very much look forward to the opportunity to experience Bliss again."

    • Review by Charlotte Ho from Hongkong

      "It wouldn't be an exaggeration at all to say that my Bliss Body Retreat experience was life changing. It was my first yoga and detox retreat and I must say the experience far exceeded my expectations. Vlada is an inspiring lady and a great yoga instructor, and I am so grateful to have had spent the week with her. Her assistant, Olha, was also a sweetest and most helpful angel. The villa was a beautiful refuge in the middle of a jungle and was the perfect setting for reconnecting with both nature and your inner self. The highlight was definitely the food and juices - the week of raw and vegan diet was completely new to me and the effects of detox were amazing - my skin was literally glowing by day 6! Apart from detoxing the body, it was also a great detox for the mind - Ubud is an island full of spiritual energy - the visits to temples and the purification ceremonies. There were also experiences that had a profound impact on me internally. You'll also meet like-minded people on your retreat - my group consisted of four other lovely ladies - from all over the world and of different age groups, but everyone provided a unique source of energy and support to the group. We now share a magical bond despite being scattered across the globe. And my diet and lifestyle have changed after the retreat - am feeling great. Thank you again Bliss Body Retreat!"

    • Review by Daria Kh from Thailand

      "Going for a yoga retreat was in my head for a long time. Since for the last year I am traveling around South East Asia, it was quite hard for me to choose the country of retreat as I don't like to plan beforehand. "

      "Finally, I found myself in Bali looking for peace and serenity after long and hectic trips. "

      "I was very particular about choosing retreat itself, was looking for mostly yoga and spiritual part to be immersed in. After scrolling down thousands of pages, I stopped on Bliss Body Retreat to have seven days raw food and yoga retreat. "

      "Well, it was one of my ever best decisions. I can't describe my final feelings, as it is hundreds and hundreds time more than I've been expecting. To start with, that I totally changed my diet after this event, ending up with my attitude to life and everything that surrounds me. "

      "Bliss Body became my starting point to become better and better everyday, practice more yoga, and think about my diet. "

      "Of course, it was not that that easy to overcome detoxification process, however, Vlada's support was incredibly throughout whole period and she motivate us all to keep calm and carry one. "

      "Not to mention, the exploring Balinese culture part of the retreat. Purification ceremonies were amazing. "

      "As mentioned above, I was looking for the Yoga retreat, which by the way was incredibly great, I've learned much more after these 7 days staying with Bliss Body. "

      "To sum up, I feel enormously grateful for the girls to meet them in my life. Bliss Body Retreat is a perfect choice, believe me, and I would highly recommend it to everyone and hope you will receive same great experience as I did. "

      "Thank you very much, Vlada and Olia, for these days in my life, what changed me forever."

    • Review by Annette R. from Italy

      "I was looking for juice fasting program in Bali and Bliss Body Retreats were offering exactly what I wanted. I had three days of fasting and the rest, we were eating only raw food."

      "Must admit that guides are real professionals and gave me lots of help and support during my stay. Fasting was not so easy to do but I liked the juices they were making and actually I didn't even feel hungry. "

      "I have never tried eating raw food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. This retreat opened my eyes about food and nutrition in general. It was so delicious that I immediately forgot about my favorite pasta! Thanks to Vlada who was giving her seminar about nutrition, it was very simple and very progressive for me."

      "On the last day, I couldn't believe my eyes, I was shining! Never felt so strong and so inspired before."

      "What to say big thanks to Olha who told me so many interesting things about Bali and it's traditions!"

      "I loved our sunrise yoga practice and evening breathing with meditation it made me feel very calm and rejuvenating."

      "To be honest I got much more than just fasting. It was like a perfect journey from a movie with all those Balinese secret places where we did water cleansing, Vlada made it just as a magic."

      "I will definitely come back to this Island and to Bliss body retreat for another vital and beautiful journey. Thank you again for making my vacation simply the best."

    • Review by Amandah C from Dubai, United Arab Emirates

      "I wasn't keen on doing a detox but selected this retreat as a happy medium between my desire to have lovely Balinese villa accommodation whilst visiting spiritual places of interest. My friend wanted yoga and detox. So after much searching Bliss Body it was!"

      ""

      "The ladies are fairly new to running retreats and for me personally there were a few bumps in the road during the week. Not all my needs were met and I felt like I had to fit into the retreat rather than the retreat be focused on me and what I needed. I needed the retreat leader to demonstrate a higher level of emotional intelligence and attempt to have a better understanding of who I am versus the perception that was created around me. For me it was like my traveling buddy was the good guy and I was the bad guy. I felt hurt by a couple of comments that came my way. I know there were no negative intentions however as a paying guest, I shouldn't have felt like I was being a problem for them. But I think a lot of things being said were probably lost in translation. From a practical stand point I would have enjoyed more transparency on what was on the menu for the week or be able to make choices. The opportunity for a "free" afternoon or morning to do a local activity of choice would have been ideal. If you like a lot of structure and limited opportunities to cave into temptation then this will be a good week for you. But if you feel frustrated by lack of options it could drive you nuts!"

      ""

      "The original accommodation we had was not to my taste it felt 3 star rather than "deluxe" but the new villa they are in now is terrific it was a huge improvement when we moved there after some structural issues with the other villa. They recovered this very well. This new location is very much ideal Balinese villa accommodation, I hope they can keep the retreats there moving forward. It was perfect however I'm sure this location will also drive the prices up. But for me I would pay more to stay there. "

      ""

      "The retreat leader clearly was very knowledgeable, I trusted her advise and I am pleased with my results on the detox, I finally felt good at the end of it and had a lovely time with my friend. I particularly enjoyed the temple cleansing ceremonies. If going on this retreat and traveling all the way to Ubud I would advise to ensure you plan days in the area before and after the retreat to ensure you can experience the wonders of Ubud fully. There is so much to experience there such as rafting and incredible restaurants. It's hard getting on a plane the day after a week of literal colon cleansing. "

      ""

      "I think this retreat has huge potential to be an excellent retreat with some tweaks and adjustments. I'm sure this will happen as the ladies have been open to feedback. I wish them luck as this journey evolves for them."

    • Review by Magda from Barcelona, Spain

      "A blessed complete renovation from inside out!"

      "I have been this summer in the Bliss Body Retreat's seven days detox program in Bali and I can just recall all the benefits that I am still experiencing from it."

      "The program is very well organized, with a detox diet based on delicious raw vegetarian recipes, juices, smoothies, and coconut water! Vlada is a bliss since she thinks about all the details for each moment. The great news is that you clean your body without being hungry or feeling that you are deprived of food, she just introduces a completely new form of living called clean eating. "

      "Apart from following Vlada's menus, we also had some workshops and we take home many learned recipes, even veggie sushi ;) Another workshop in how to keep a clean diet back home and a lot of info about nutrition."

      "Apart from the detox diet part, which really makes a difference on the skin and all the body, we also practiced yoga. Vlada is a great Iyengar yoga teacher and made classes appropriate for all participants, I have improved a lot since I came back from Bali."

      "Another point is that during the week, there are also some activities programmed very carefully since we visited two amazing spas and a couple of water purification temples, how can't you feel renewed after spending a week like that in the most magic island of the world as Bali?"

      "And if I think of the house we were in, probably the best I have been, swimming pool, big terraces, and launch spaces - all great to just rest on your spare time."

      "A complete bliss inside out! A restart in my life and a new way of nourishing myself!"

      "Just give yourself the opportunity as I did myself."

      "The seven days detox and yoga retreat, for me, was a beautiful and amazing experience. The location was just stunning. Right in the middle of the jungle in Ubud, we had a gorgeous villa, swimming pool, and very friendly staff. I remember when I walked into my room I said to myself, "Is this for real?" "

      "Vlada did a fantastic job guiding us through the yoga classes, the raw food meals (all delicious, by the way), the benefits of the juices, and how it is possible to change your diet and routine without the struggle. "

      "You can see her personal touches on everything, including the excursions she picked. All were very special and spiritual places, which made the whole experience truly unforgettable to me."

      "I believe it is a great value for your money, you literally don't need to spend anything else once you are on the retreat."

      "Thanks again Vlada for being part of my journey, I'm very grateful!"

    • Review by Charlotte Rois from France

      "It has been awhile since I come back to France from a retreat in Bali, Ubud and I try to implement all my knowledge gained during this amazing seven days. Vlada is extremely awesome, she taught me so many things about healthy nutrition, the combination of products and how to cook easy, healthy and what is more important for me delicious. Not to mention her teaching abilities as a yoga instructor, I never had classes like that. I am pretty sure it was a lucky gift from life to choose this retreat among 100 of others and meet such an inspiring team as Bliss Body. The accommodation was just something out of my imagination and of course swimming pool with a jungle panorama - Oh it was incredible. I would like to add that the program is so intensive that you literally don’t have time to procrastinate: spa, massage, rice fields, temples, etc. so this was the only one minus of the whole retreat process. Thank you once again Vlada and Olha, you are doing a great job! And for everyone - don’t think a lot just book it! You will never regret, believe me! "

      "I feel happy to share my experience after Bliss Body Retreat. For me, it was the first time to have detox of the organism in my life. It was definitely something new and interesting to do. For the past two years, I was working a lot in the office and feel that this retreat helped me to restore myself only in one week. It is something magical. You will never believe until you try yourself. When I was looking for a retreat, a crucial moment for me was yoga and meditation, but it is much more than I’ve expected. The combination of raw food, our favorite green juice, and yoga led to the peaceful feeling inside and wonderful look outside. Now I hope to continue my new healthy path and try to stick to one-day raw food in a week. "

      "One of my favorite things was purification ceremony in a water temple, I can’t find proper words to describe that feeling that you have after. Overall, all the places that we’ve visited were magnificent and interesting."

      "If you want to feel great, and look great I strongly recommend booking this retreat. Vlada is such a knowledgeable, experienced, and inspiring person. I do hope we will meet again in future. Big thank - Bliss Body Retreat team and especially to amazing Vlada!"

      "I would like to share my amazing experience of detox and yoga retreat in May. I had a very great time in Bali, it was even better than I hoped for. The program was well-designed and adjustable for such beginners in yoga like me. Firstly, I was a bit afraid that we will eat only raw food and drink juices, as I have never ever tried to follow such a diet. But, I have realized that you can make a lot of various delicious meals even not to cook them. With the help of our amazing retreat guide, Vlada, and useful tips from here my seven days past so quickly, but truly amazing. The whole week was total relaxation and peacefulness. I have not only spent really good time but also was taught how to implement a piece of retreat in my daily life. That was really helpful. A big thank to Vlada. I am pretty sure it was my perfect choice of a yoga retreat and I would highly recommend it to everyone who wants to have a perfect and healthy holiday."

    • Review by Jeremy from Texas, USA

      "It is tempting for me to withhold my honest comments in the selfish attempt to keep Bliss Body Retreat from becoming a huge success and everyone wants to visit, thus, ensuring my own access to her whenever I would like in the future. The truth is, though, retreat team deserves every bit of good fortune to come their way because the program is simply wonderful."

      "For starters, the retreat is located in the middle of one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Everyone I met or even passed by was incredibly friendly too. As for the guide Vlada herself, she was kind and gentle during the whole time yet somehow convincing enough to push me through the tough yoga sessions. Sometimes I really felt like I couldn't move forward but then she'd position me or guide me and next thing you know I was able to carry on. You can tell she has done yoga for a while and she genuinely loves it. She has inspired me to restart my yoga practice which has lapsed significantly prior to this visit."

      "The nutritional aspect of the retreat was probably the biggest benefit to takeaway for me. I learned that I really don't need to eat nearly as much as I have been used to eating in my life. During the retreat, I don't think I hardly ate anything (by standards in the USA) but I didn't feel hungry, at least not more than a passing few seconds and the feeling went away when I didn't feed it. It was a real eye-opener for me to understand how energetic I could feel with such relatively small quantities of food. I have carried this over back into my normal life, I eat a lot less now and I feel better, I think I look better too! I can't thank her enough for this gift of knowledge."

      "In short, I wish to go back to this retreat in the magical land Bali and hope to do so before too long."
