"Excellent experience"

I was the only participant on this online course. Ariel and Aldo were incredibly welcoming and friendly. The yoga lessons were excellent and varied and well explained. In the cooking lessons, Ariel took the time to explain each of the properties of the food and we made some delicious dishes. They said that because there aren't many participants they will be stopping the online course which I think is such a shame because it was incredible value and during these difficult times it enabled me to bring in a little little Balinese sunshine and exotism into my lockdown days. It is a non-profit organisation and the money made goes to help the local community. Thank you both for this great experience!

"Excellent retreat"

I liked to be away from the crowds, surrounded by rice fields and forests. The staff was very nice, they even remembered the name of each of us. The included message was good and the cooking classes were awesome too.

"Lovely and Relaxing Yoga Retreat in Ubud"

I loved the location of the retreat. It was amongst rice fields and farms and it was very quiet and beautiful. It was just out of the way but also about a 15 min drive to the centre area of Ubud so it was accessible to get to restaurants and shopping. The food was also delicious, a great menu of vegetarian dishes to choose from. All of the staff are lovely and so kind/helpful. The yoga teachers were also great and helpful especially since I was a beginner to yoga. I also really enjoyed the Ubud day trip experience where we visited a primary school, a temple and ate some traditional food. The cooking classes were also great- we learned how to make jackfruit curry and chocolate!

"Excellent experience, great value for money!"

Ariel and staff were kind accommodating and very well organised. Good variety in the yoga classes by a number of different teachers. A good selection of fun activities and a great massage. Located a bit outside of town in a nice tranquil beautiful setting but also close enough to town if you wanted to get there. Rooms and food were also really good.

"A beautiful yoga and Balinese experience"

Ariel and his team made every effort to create a unique yoga experience at this retreat. The rooms were very comfortable, large and with air con. The views to the rice fields stunning, specially from the swimming pool. There was a range of yoga instructors, all of them experienced and able to offer different yoga styles. The additional activities in the schedule were really enjoyable, including the massage. The staff are very friendly and accommodating, and fun to talk to.

Overall, great value for money and would definitely recommend to other travellers.

I likes my room and all the additional activities Ariel organised.

I also love that it’s a not for profit business and part of my money goes to support education for under privileged children

"Very good experience at firefly resort "

I really enjoyed my yoga retreat at Firefly resort. The place is beautiful, in the middle of the rice fields, very peaceful. The yoga was perfect for me, twice a day with two different teachers. And the owner super nice and interesting. As well as the staff :)

Thank you Ariel

"Magical a Little Place in The Universe ✨"

The other guests have now become friends I suspect for life. The staff were so friendly! We all banned together for a group tip for them at the end. The retreat owner (thinks he’s a comedian) but a charming astrophysicist who showed us the stars and we got to look through a powerful telescope. The yoga classes were good and introduced a great variety of yin, flow, acro, restorative .. great for only a 7 day yoga retreat!!

Thanks for the memories Firefly!!

"Yoga, and not only"

I enjoyed one week of simple life, away of perky comfort, and fully connected with nature. This is an ideal place to switch off, relax the body, clean the mind and delight the soul. Yoga classes were a revelation about what my body is able to do, when I have trust. Magical places are the pool and restaurant, where we've enjoyed the tasty foods and fresh drinks, we've connected with people allover the world, we've shared experiences, stories and information, we've become friends and we've grown a lot together.

This place has a good energy, caring and warm people - thank you, guys, for the awesome experience!

"Being serene in nature"

The guy who runs the resort is hilarious and very informative. His sense of humour is just what the place needs.

The food was amazing and the swimming pool was everything. The swimming pool and the dinning area was the social places where we would socialise and get to know each other better.


from Canada, December 2019

"An incredible 8 days that flew by. "

The retreat is located in the beautiful rice fields of Ubud which means you get the chance to disconnect from the craziness of the city.

You will find a special bond with the people that show up on the retreat and it might be one of the greatest things you do for yourself.

"An amazing trip"

I loved everything about this retreat. From the staff (Ariel, Agun and Isa) to the amazing yoga instructor Jaime. I became so engrossed in yoga never having done it before to now eager to return home and carry it on. Jaime’s instruction on yoga and teaching was second to none. I was made to feel at home in this retreat and feeling like family to everyone I had met and the food was incredible. I highly recommend this trip.

"great place to wind down"

Jamie, the yoga teacher, is an amazing person and teacher. Learnt so much had a great time with him and the other guests. Service great and the food is really nice. beautiful location and within walking distance of Ubud. (the walk on the other side of the river is beautiful to walk to town!)

"Ubud Bali yoga detention center"

Arial the owner was profuse as well as funny and i would recommend him to all you girls as well as Jaime the aussie ex gridiron yogi disciplinarian.Apologies from an old dude who enjoyed it immensely. The group was great, all nationalities including two canucks who Ill see in due course

"Amazing- Nice balance of yoga, cultural activities, classes"

This retreat was really well balanced. A nice vigorous yoga practice in the morning, usually some activity in the day, then a slow yin practice in the evening. The yoga teacher was great, and the activities we did were fun. The cooking classes were very nice as well. For the amount we did in a week, there was still plenty of free time to explore, or just chill by the pool. I really don't think you can beat this retreat with the price. I also like how it starts at the same time for everyone in the group, so you get a chance to really meet and get to know the other retreat goers. It was nice being away from town, in a very beautiful area. And you could still have a nice walk to Ubud center in about 30 minutes. Oh and the food was really good as well.

"What an incredible place! "

From the moment i arrived i fell in love with this place. The location on the rice fields and jungle was so serene. My room was comfortable and spacious (even had its own downstairs lounge area and fridge - i selected air con private single room). I awoke to the most beautiful sunrise each day and had the pleasure of doing yoga on the edge of the jungle, accompanied by the wonderful sounds of nature. Our yoga teacher Jaimie was one of the best I've come across. His friendly attitude and varied teaching kept the classes interesting and fun. The food here surpassed all expectations. Utterly delicious locally sourced produce (the tempeh steak was incredible!) the retreat included a range of activities which were all superb, from the bali experience trip to chocolate making! The ambiance and pool area were so relaxing, perfect to reset and recharge. Ubud town centre was only a 30min walk away or a 5 min taxi. A brilliant location, especially as the Pyramids of Chi were only 15min walk away!! (a must visit whilst you're there!) the staff were friendly and helpful and the included massage fantastic! I wish i was still there and will 100% be returning. Thank you for everything. Namaste!

Where to start?! Everything was fantastic! The yoga classes were very good for all levels and we even got to do acro yoga. The cultural programme was super awesome- every day we did something different. And the selection was not just the standard programme. The food was super good, the pool lovely, the staff friendly. Ariel, the owner is such a genuine person and he really cares about offering a good experience for everyone. This was one of the best experiences in all of my travels in South East Asia. I loved it so much! Thank you, Ariel and team!

"Amazing yoga retreat on a budget"

I met the most amazing group of people at the Firefly. The owner was highly entertaining and we got to try so many new activities including chocolate making, astronomy and we learnt how to make jack fruit curry. The tour was really interesting (apart from the visit to the primary school which felt quite uncomfortable). The accommodation was comfortable and in such a peaceful setting. The food was sooo tasty. For the price, it's amazing that all of this was included! I would definitely recommend this to people travelling on a budget.

"Absolutely Amazing"

I can't recommend this retreat enough! I wish it would have lasted longer. Located at this amazing place next to the rice fields and a small road, very peaceful. The program was perfect, getting to know the local culture and the cosmos too! In the evening you can look for the fireflies over the rice fields. Excellent value for money.

"Peaceful area to practice yoga"

I liked the facilities. The yoga shala was a very comfortable place to do yoga. During our stay the little creek nearby was running and made the jungle atmosphere even better. Each day for lunch and dinner we ordered food off the menu. Every day the quality was consistent and the food was very delicious. We had different yoga teachers for the different styles and because we had such a small group of people we got good advice from the teachers. I recommend this retreat.

Really enjoyed the variation in the programme. I had a shared room and it was perfect with air-conditioning. The team working there are so lovely. Caspian's acro yoga class at the end of the week was an absolute highlight. I had such a lovely group to spend the week with. I would highly recommend this place for the price.

"Yoga gem tucked into the rice fields"

This place was amazing! Not just the quality of the yoga, but the activities organised as well. The food was lovely, the staff so friendly and Ariel who runs the place was great.

It's a basic retreat, simple rooms and facilities, but that's what I loved about it. It's out of Ubud so very quiet and relaxing. Youll have to get a taxi in if you want to visit but you may not want to leave very often. There's plenty organised and the chance to relax is irresistable. The pool is right next to the rice fields! So lovely.

It's very hard to find so make sure you follow the road straight ahead of you all the way to the end. It's worth the effort of getting there.

This retreat was the absolute highlight of my Bali stay and the yoga I practised was with top level instructors.

Highly, highly recommended.

"Wonderful Stay and Unfogettable Experience :)"

Big thank you for Ariel, Mose, Emma, all FireFly team and my retreat group for making my stay wonderful and unfogettable experience. You all are beautiful and kind souls and I can't wait to see you again!

Resort is situated between the rice fields and jungle in amazing and very peaceful area. Yoga sessions were very professional and made in the great atmosphere. All program of the retreat was totally wonderful... awesome cooking classes, excellent Balinese experience tour, super interesting session about the astrophysics and much more.

All staff is super friendly and helpful, food was delicious, my room (had one with the AC) was awesome and the price was great for everything what was provided during my stay.

I'm highly recommending the retreat in FireFly Resort and I can't wait to be back again! :)

"Peaceful days full of activities "

The schedule was organized very thoughtfully, starting out easier and building up from there in everything- yoga, activities, spiritual and educational components. The food was varied and delicious, and definitely worked for our active lifestyle. The rooms were cozy and the bathrooms clean. I loved how balanced the retreat felt and the community we created.

"Amazing value for a magical experience "

I loved the location of the resort in the jungle and rice fields. It was like stepping into a totally different world! Looking out of the yoga shala into the jungle was very special. Our cohort got along very well and our instructor was passionate and matched classes to our energy. The food was delicious and the breakfast smoothie bowl bar was my favourite. It certainly helped me get out of bed for 7am yoga classes.

"Invigorating & life changing experience!"

I was a first time Yogi & anxiously booked this experience but all was soon forgotten once welcomed by Firefly staff and fellow Yogis, had a fantastic group of people staying that week, all on similar missions. Value for money, beautiful surreal location, fantastic & intelligent host Ariel and great knowledgeable yoga instructor, Jamie. Food was great considering I’m generally a non vegetarian....enjoyed the menu.

Oriane Dutschler

"Highlight of my month in Bali"

Everything from the location to the food (the breakfast is INSANE I still dream about it) and the activities including yoga are amazing. Jaime is the best yoga teacher I had and I truly grew during this week. Activities to know better about the beautiful island of Bali are great, but the best must be the amazing people that I met and connected with.

Ting C

from Philippines, June 2019

"Well rounded Balinese experience with quality yoga classes!"

Yoga classes were great with nice balance of intensity and relaxation. Learned so much about different kinds of yoga so really great for beginners. Small class means teacher can help you with your technique more and really very supportive when he sees you trying to push for a pose but not in a very pressuring kind of way.

Ariel the owner is GREAT. Charming in a subdued sort of way and genuinely helpful, sincere and funny to boot (he's so good at faking sounding like the Wikipedia for Bali so watch out! Haha). Staff are super accommodating (if forgetful at times but hey this is Bali so just learn to roll with it!).

Finally, fantastic value for money considering food and drinks like fresh coconut water and herbal teas all included as well as a free full body massage and various other non-yoga activities like tours and cooking classes. If you want a well rounded Balinese experience with quality yoga, this is the place!

Catarina Coutinho

from Australia, May 2019

"Life changing experience"

Where do I even start? This week retreat went way beyond my expectations. I'm so happy I chose this place for my first yoga retreat. I had a life changing experience with very beautiful, loving and caring people in a peaceful and beautiful place with an absolutely mind-blowing yoga instructor - Jamie. He's like an orange of knowledge that you want to squeeze and take as much as you can with you. He has such good energy and he was always there for anyone that needed to talk. I'm so thankful for everything he shared with us. Every single class was amazing, we all came out of there with such good energy. I've never tried Yin or Nidra yoga before and I had a super interesting experience with it. At the end of the week, I felt like a new person.

About the space in itself, it's amazing! Super clean, so much light in the rooms and the times we hang by the pool were amazing. I've got my own private (amazing) room - It had a view over the rice fields and I could see the sunrise every morning from my window *.*

I participated in all the activities, which were super fun and I've got the skills now to cook a full Balinese dinner experience (including delicious chocolate for dessert :)).

Ariel, the owner and all the staff were 5*, always very helpful with everything we needed and quite funny too, especially Ariel! :)

The food was delicious, my favourite that I could not get sick of it was Tempah steak. So yummy! Next year we're all gonna be back and I can't wait to see everyone again.

"Fireflies forever!"

My whole experience at Firefly was very positive. Ariel who owns and runs the resort was a very approachable and helpful host who made my stay lots of fun. The extra activities put on by Ariel were also loads of fun.

Jamie, our main yoga instructor was both knowledgeable, attentive to the needs of the group and just a fantastic guy. All the yoga sessions were invigorating and very enjoyable, I have a new love of Yin yoga as a result.

Also Las Vegas Lily who supported Jamie and ran some of the yoga sessions was great and introduced great variety into the yoga sessions.

But i have to say most of all I feel utterly blessed at the group I found myself in for the week, all of whom were just an amazing group of people from all over the world, it would not have been to same without any of them.

This was my first yoga retreat and it just blew me away.

Brumilda Marshall

from United Kingdom, May 2019

"Just Brilliant!"

I loved everything about this retreat. From the warm welcome received by Ariel, the daily beautiful yoga practices by Jamie, the very delicious meals to the new friends that I have made. This retreat is excellent value for money and I'm already recommending to everyone.

"An exquisite journey into the self & connection with others"

This retreat exceeded my expectations. The yoga instructors were powerful guides and taught in a way that each day built on the next. The exercises we did allowed us to form deep connections with one another, observe our minds and release unwanted stored emotions. A transformational and beautiful experience. The week flew by and the place felt like home, the other participants like family.

Thank you Ariel for creating this space. Thank you Jamie, Lily and Lily for guiding us in our practice. Thank you to all the wonderful staff who were so courteous and helpful. I would recommend this place to anyone interested in having a beautiful experience amongst the rice fields and jungle of Ubud.

Also; really good value for money.

"Amazing, Authentic yoga experience in a beautiful setting"

Jamie, the instructor was excellent. He was knowledgable, approachable and provided great classes for all levels and experience. He is a really good guy and highly recommend him as as a teacher.

The location of firefly was away from the hustle/bustle of Ubud centre but close enough to walk or taxi to all the amenities. The setting itself is beautiful and very peaceful.

Ariel the owner is also a really good guy and was extremely helpful with the checking in process and helped us out with any questions we had. He also provided great cooking classes and a stargazing presentation which was informative and enjoyable.

The experience of Firefly was perfect and I can't fault Jmie, Ariel and the rest of the staff.

Ava Gromadzka

"Fantastic yoga retreat experience "

The place is located in the middle of the rice fields, away from noisy Ubud full of tourists. The classes are suitable for any yoga level you are at, the food is fresh and delicious, the program includes integration with local people, their activities and local food tasting. The rooms a great, with fantastic views, you have a pool there if you feel like relaxing from classes, and the price is such a great value for money. I met so many fantastic people and the time spent there was one of the best experiences I ever had.

This yoga retreat was what I was expecting and more! Peaceful and beautiful location in the rice fields, a little hard to find but Ariel will always help you with indications. The food is so tasty and delicious, specially the breakfast buffet!! Always drinking water available, tea and coffee. But the highlight was the yoga and the extra experiences organized by the retreat. We had a Balinese experience, cooking class, Balinese offering class, walked in the rice fields and much more! The yoga was simply perfect. Jaime is a great teacher and really put his heart in the classes, teaching us not only yoga poses but also mantras and more.

"Complete Gem!!! "

I absolutely loved my time here!!! The yoga with Jamie was fantastic, my room was clean and the view overlooking the rice fields was so amazing. I loved all the vegetarian food and appreciated the vegan options on everything. It’s a good walk to the city (~40min) but location is so nice because it’s quit and tranquil. I frequently hitched a ride on scooters when I went into the busy town. The people in Ubud are so kind and so were the hosts. I celebrated my 30th birthday here and it was the best decision ever! Ubud will always have a special place in my heart ❤️

I would highly recommend this yoga retreat!!!

I love how the resort seems to be a secret magical place. It is so peaceful and I love how at night there seems to be dancing fireflies on the quiet ricefield. Every activity is exciting and so full of life, and meaning. Ariel, our host is a very funny, very humble, very kind, and very smart man who love stars and science and made sure all the guest are at ease and feel at home. He made us laugh with his funny remarks and taught us a lot about Balinese culture. Jaime, our yoga instructor is so dedicated and full of passion and he share that passion with us through the practice. For me it is perfect as a beginner in the practice of yoga. I learned so much and felt that i have a very strong and well built foundation to begin my own practice. All the staff are amazing and everyday is a new day to learn something new or something more. I know all the other guest feel the same. Double thumbs up for my experience. :)

"beautiful spot"

The setting was gorgeous. I loved walking around the rice fields with fabulous butterflies. Jamie the instructor handled a very diverse group with skill. He encouraged us to create a sense of community which led to lots of deep sharing. Ariel provided a full programme of activities and oversaw many with a great sense of humour. My upstairs private room was lovely. It is superb value for money.

"Firefly Resort is a hidden gem! "

There were so many wonderful experiences throughout the week. I loved how connected the resort is to nature and Balinese culture. The accommodations and food are quite simple but enjoyable. The location is a bit hard to get to but worth the effort for the peace and relaxation there. The yoga was a nice combination of styles and levels, infused with the spiritual aspects of the practice. The other activities were varied and interesting. I would love to return soon!!

"Such a good value!!!"

So much more than just a “yoga retreat”. I had the most incredible week! I just can’t get over what you get for the price. Such a great value. A week a won’t soon forget.

"Very special experience :)"

The program ran as advertised and each of the activities were well thought through and very enjoyable. The yoga was all taught by the same instructor allowing for a good relationship to form. There was a good variety of yoga sessions but also consistency to allow repeated practice of certain positions and sequences. There was a menu to choose lunch and dinner from each day which was great to have the choice. Breakfast was buffet style with fruit, pancakes, granola and a smoothie bowl. The fresh coconuts are delicious and you can have one each day (along with unlimited herbal tea and coffee)! I opted for a private room which was actually a two storied villa with a fridge and living area, bathroom with toilet and shower and bedroom with air conditioning. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the whole property was very small but in a cozy and refreshing way. The property is much prettier than pictured which was an excellent surprise!

"nice location"

beautiful location in the rice fields; we had one Australian yoga teacher, Jamie, he was nice and very good but for a whole week it would be better to have more than one teacher. the cultural program is always lovely, especially the bycicle ride was great as well as the cooking lessons

"Fantastic value for the money! "

It was an incredible week! The staff were amazing, the food was delicious and the accommodations were very good. The excursions each day were well planned and had a lot of variety. We really enjoyed the flexibility of the program as well. It was up to the guests as to what they participated in leaving the opportunity for free time as well. A very tranquil environment, I would highly recommend it to anybody. Well done firefly!!

"Truly memorable experience "

The location was stunning - so peaceful and quiet, and yet it was a nice walk into town and across the river. For me, it was the perfect balance of scheduled activities and time for me to explore the area on my own. Jaime, our yoga instructor, was outstanding and delivered such a fantastic group programme, and he really tailored for each Individual as much as possible - his personal interest and care for each person was inspiring. I loved my accommodation and I was super comfortable and relaxed at The Firefly. All staff were welcoming and accommodating and Koko was a great guide. He took the time to explain Balinese culture and to share his passion for the beautiful natural environment.

Mathilde Maze

"Perfect week, would go again"

Everything during my stay was very-well taken care of. The schedule of our week was very good, yoga in the morning and in the evening with Jamie, a very well-spoken and knowledgeable yoga teacher. I feel like in this week, I have learnt a lot more than I did during my two years of practice in a yoga studio. We have learnt and practiced different types of yoga including flow, Hatha, Vinyasa. We have talked about chakra, we did mantra chanting and breathing, of course. Besides yoga, we have been enjoying an amazing bicycle ride with Koko, learnt how to prepare food with Ariel and also learn about coffee and tea with Koko. I have enjoyed every bit of that week and everyone was just so kind. I also had some issues to connect on internet at some point and Ariel was here to help. Room was also very confortable and what a stunning place to stay in ! Also, breakfast is AWESOME. From the bottom of my heart thank you to the entire team for showing us true Bali, the tradition, the way of living, welcoming us into your homes.

"You get what you pay for, nothing more"

Lovely quiet location amid rice fields, not far from Ubud centre. All meals provided so no need to think about next meal. Set menu to choose from, most of the meals were tasty. Balinese staff were lovely and very helpful 10/10 for them. Agung would always enquire about my daughter when she was too unwell to come down for meals, and remembered all our names from day 1 :) Koko was an entertaining tour guide. Cultural experience was excellent, the highlight of the week for me. Other activities were good too. Be prepared for a challenging bike was hard but I loved it even though I had a nasty fall. Staff were great checking on my healing which I appreciated.

Had really beautiful experience in Firefly yoga retreat.

Environment was really good for retreat and healing. Beautiful nature in the middle of the rice fields, really quiet and peaceful.

Yoga teachers were really good and I really enjoyed every workshop we had. I loved that there were activities to introduce local life.

Staff was really friendly and helpful and food was healthy and very good.

"ignore all bad reviews!! this place is paradise!"

everything! Ariel was very accommodating, Jamie was the best yoga teacher ive had to date, super chilled, down to earth and a great motivator, Koko, Akun and his team worked really hard to cook fantastic food and take us out on great days out! there were activities everyday, you can walk to ubud through the rice fields within 25 mins, the yoga and meditation was perfect, the food was insanely good and the setting was perfect! it is a little difficult to find but so so worth it! pure paradise! the rooms were clean, you just have to remember youre in the jungle so you have to expect some friends to visit :) and of course living up to its name... the fireflys are stunning!

"Excellent value for money, great people and well organised"

This is a budget retreat but you get a lot for your money. The package includes daily activities, yoga, food, accommodation and extras like coconuts and a massage. Plus the pool made it a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. Food is all vegetarian and good quality, especially the breakfast. The yoga instructors were great, and the people running the retreat, Ariel and Koko, were lovely. Overall it was very well organised, with plenty of things to do and lots of relaxation time.

"The dark side of paradise"

We've seen a fair bit of the world and Bali and the location of the 'resort' is dreamlike and off the beaten track (careful with the suitcase wheels). We were excited about the opportunity of spending around NZ$1200 for accommodation, food, yoga and day excursions for 4 adults for 7 days. Seemed too good to be true but the reviews online spoke well. We were expecting something a bit tired for this price and that is fine. The employed locals were friendly and helpful. We were looking forward to escaping the rat-race, the relentless clamour for bling, and getting the opportunity to de-clutter, simplify and become more present.

Gabriella Vintila

from Qatar, January 2019

"Wonderful experience, a great deal quality-price!"

I would like to start by thanking the whole resort TEAM! The owner who did an amazing job with this place, Koko, Agung, our lovely yoga instructor Laura and the the whole team behind the scene. They all created from a bunch of random girls, an amazing team with a magic atmosphere.

Now... for those reading reviews, planning to go for a yoga retreat, please remember that you should leave the “5star hotel” expectations at home!!! This retreat gives you the RIGHT AMOUNT OF EVERYTHING!

Everything is so well organized: the practice, the trips, and all other activities are amazingly combined that in your last day of your stay, you only wish for it not to end.

The Food - absolutely delicious (and i am not a vegetarian) and even if you feel like adding extra, the prices are decent and affordable, no need to worry at all! The tempe steak, was my absolute favorite dish! :)

The Staff - are so polite, attentive, friendly, and helpful. They all call you by name and that makes the whole place feel like a big family.

The Yoga instructor (Laura) - managed perfect balance in a combined group of advanced and beginners, creating “magic moments “ and a beautiful experience overall!

The owner is very funny and involved in giving everyone the best experience! The human touch is much appreciated- he even shared his personal 4G data with us when wifi was under Mantainance for a techical check. Thank you!

I definitely recommend Firefly retreat!


from United States, January 2019

"Great food, great staff!"

They was no shortage of activities at firefly. We were never bored and were always entertained. It was a good balance of activity and leisure. The food was a 10/10. It was amazing!! The location is a little remote, so walking into the city was not possible, however, we were so exhausted during our free time that we didn't want to go anywhere.

"This place is an absolute hidden GEM!!"

The location was serene and beautiful, and the infinity pool was idyllic. The itinerary for the week was absolutely incredible and I cannot believe we were able to do everything included in the price. I loved the focus on local culture and traditions and getting to explore the area, as well.

The yoga was challenging and I really enjoyed it.

The owner and staff are absolutely amazing and clearly enjoy what they are doing here.

The breakfast was the best!

The only thing you need to know about this ‘hidden gem’ is that it actually seems hidden. The way to get to the resort is a tiny sidewalk to the right of the big house at the bottom of the hill (where there is no signage). Don’t worry- go up the hill and you will see the buildings across the rice fields when you get to the top!!

"Excellent location and staff, would recommend 100%"

The location is ideal. It is 20 minutes walk from Ubud (only 5 minutes ride if you rent a scooter - which you can rent not far from the resort for a good price). So if you want to go to Ubud you can go whenever you want, but you can also enjoy the peace and tranquility of this place, located in the beautiful ricefields.

The staff was so friendly and they made us feel confortable. They also know a lot, and the activities/excursions planned by the resorts are always interesting and fun.

The retreat was fantastic value for the price you pay. Accomodation was basic but sufficient and they do light cleaning if needed. The food was good and I loved the breakfast buffet. Program was amazing with a great mix of schefuled activities, free time and I loved how you didn’t have to feel obligated to attend all programs scheduled. The pool around the serene setting was a win. Couldn’t say enough good things about this retreat. The retreat staff were also super friendly and helpful.

"Best Yoga Retreat!"

The retreat was amazing I would go back again. I had a really great crew I got to achieve so many things with. The downtime is percfect and town is so close as well. All the experiences were great and the classes were too, it’s also nice if you don’t feel up to any classes you are not obliged to attend.


from United Kingdom, December 2018

"An unforgettable stay"

I liked the location of firefly which is set in the midst of rice fields and far enough away from any hustle and bustle of traffic. It is set off the beaten track so may not appeal to everyone. I loved it along with all the sounds of nature, the rain and even the ducks as they meandered through the rice fields everyday. It was a truly peaceful and relaxing week without the usual distractions of modern life and is worth the effort of getting here. I loved the yoga practice each morning and evening which was really well led by Marcia. She has inspired me to develop a more regular and spiritual practice of my own now that I have left. The excursions and activities organised for us were excellent and authentic, with the Balinese village experience perhaps being one of my highlights. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. It was delicious, freshly prepared and served beautifully and with care. I really enjoyed the emphasis on fresh fruit and having a meat and dairy free diet for the week. And finally, the Balinese staff were all lovely, happy to tell you about Bali and the local culture and help you in any way they could.

"An amazing week. . . In many ways 😊"

Marcia the yoga instructor was perfect for our group . I had trouble adding the instructor !! She included many different practises as well as the continuation of daily body flow. Marcia was mindful of each student's needs, she was professional as well as easy to be with. She challenged us but gave options to go deeper but no pressure. The group of young women blended beautifully together. We were most fortunate to meet each other insuch an environment.

The location of the retreat is breath taking and so nice to have a simple Balinese environment.

All the staff were friendly, flexible and supportive.

The program was an ideal amount of spiritual practice, activities and free time.

The promotion for this retreat is very true.

The whole program was perfect - a good mixture of down time, activities and yoga. The staff are fantastic and very helpful and the location is beautiful and peaceful with the best swimming pool! I'm not vegetarian but i thoroughly enjoyed the spread every day and the selection of food. I would recommend this retreat to everyone - great value for money and one of the best weeks of my life.

I loved the yoga practice with Marcia.she is knowledgable and old soul


from Japan, November 2018

This place in the middle of the rice fields are a good place to be relaxing.

Food is good, yoga instructor was really good and the rest of the activities was also good. It’s just bad they don’t clean.

And if you feel like going to Ubud center you can walk in the rice fields, it takes about 45-60min...

"More Than I Expected! "

It was my first yoga retreat and I had no idea that it would be so wonderful. The yoga what exactly what my body needed. The instructor was patient and kind as I struggled through the poses. The effort put into each of the meals was noteable. They worked really hard to make, serve, and clean up delicious food. The guides were funny, relatable, kind, and immediately remembered our names. They also gave us some nice excursions, the Balinese Experience being particularly good. Don’t skip that one, it was way more then we were expecting! The location was stunning!!!! So so pretty.

"An awesome week in the middle of ricefields"

We started off our honeymoon with this yoga retreat and it was an amazing decision! My husband has not done much yoga before but I managed to lure him there with the abundance of excursions and Balinese experiences included in the package and honestly, we both were super happy with the yoga and everything elae included. Incredible value at such an affordable price. And the place is run by a group of friends who do it out of love for Bali and the culture here. The yoga is very nice, suitable for beginners but also for people who have practiced for a bit already. Everyone gets what they need :)

Our room on the second floor had views on the surrounding ricefields. There was an awesome pool on site. The food was super delicious (i loved the soup capcay and my husband the betutu, which is like a tempeh steak with Balinese spices).

Koko has an awesome sense of humour and lots of knowledge.

There are fireflies around at night.

We are really recommending this retreat and wishing all the luck and all the best to the crew running the place.

Max Read

from Australia, October 2018

"An amazing place with an even better vibe."

The retreat is situated in among beautiful rice paddies, which provide stunning views for all the villas. The yoga atmosphere was relaxed and engaging, allowing people to work at their own pace across multiple skill levels. Having both a morning and evening yoga class also allows you to explore the many different types of yoga and Márcia is an amazing instructor. The staff are kind and amazing people who are willing to be your friends as much as providing top level service. And the day excisions are all genuine and interesting, very little touristy outings. Not to mention there's a complete lack of judgement if you want to skip out on one of the excursions or classes and do your own thing. Overall the place has a more family vibe and the guys who run it are clearly more interested in making people happy than making large amounts of money, which it turn makes it super pleasant and relaxing to be around.

On a personal note I'd like to thank Koko, Ariel, and Márcia for providing me with many lovely conversations and much laughter! And I wish them(and everyone else) all the best in the future.

"Gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis"

Das Frühstück bestand aus Pancakes, Erdnusscreme, Schokocreme, Apfel- und Ananasaufstrich, Obst, Müsli und Fruchtjoghurt.

Die Yogastunden sind durch verschiedene Lehrer aus Ubud durchgeführt worden, es gab zwar einen Plan, aber dieser ist von den Yogaformen nicht eingehalten worden. Es waren viele Sonnengrüße, Planks, Krieger und herabschauende Hunde dabei, so dass der Großteil der Gruppe (10 Personen) Schmerzen in den Handgelenken hatte. An dem Ausflugstag gab es gar kein Yoga. Der Ausflug war gut. Die zusätzlichen Angebote wie Kochen auch. Der Resortleiter hat eine Schokoladenmanufaktur in Ubud. Er hat uns gezeigt wie man Schokolade macht.

Toda la experiencia fue fantástica y totalmente recomendable.

El lugar donde se ubica Fairplay es simplemente maravilloso, en medio de unos campos de arroz, con unas vistas 360º espectaculares, y una calma y silencio dificiles de describir. Las habitaciones están muy bien acondicionadas, la comida es riquísima y Ariel, el propietario y fundador del espacio, es amigable, cercano y te da la mejor de las bienvenidas para que te sientas como en casa desde el primer momento, junto con el resto del equipo. Unas vacaciones de bienestar maravillosas en Ubud.

"Yoga wie es sein sollte"

Firefly Resort ist kein Resort im üblichen Sinne, sondern eine Non Profit Organisation, die hier den Einheimischen die Möglichkeit zur Arbeit gibt. Das Geld fließt ohne Gewinn in die Gemeinschaft.

Der Ort besteht aus 4 Villen, die allesamt mal eine Restaurierung vertragen könnten. Aber tut seiner Magie keinen Abbruch, im Gegenteil, mal ohne Komfort und westlichen Standard zu leben, erdet ungemein.

Das Resort liegt irgendwo zwischen Dschungel und Reisfeldern im Niemandsland.

Also ein wundervoller Ort um mal abzuschalten und zur Ruhe zu kommen.

Morgens hört man die Hähne und Enten und abends die Frösche und Geckos.

Wir hatten täglich zwei Stunden Yoga (ausser am Ausflugstag) mit Caspian, Baby(?) und einer 3. Lehrerin deren Namen ich leider vergessen habe.

Mit Caspian haben wir sehr viel Vinyasa Yoga praktiziert, aber auch eine Stunde Acro/Partneryoga was sehr lustig war.

Er ist ein erfahrener Lehrer,der sehr viele Tipps und Korrekturen gibt. Dafür Daumen hoch !!!!

Das Essen war top, immer lecker und frisch.

"lovely heart opening experience in the rice paddies"

The yoga instructor was just unbelievably positive in all aspects. It was not only practicing yoga, but rather connecting with the other people on a much deeper level and learning all different aspects of yoga (at least what is manageable in this short period of time)

I personally love the food very much. I also loved that the resort is a bit out of ubud, which allows you to go every day for a walk through the rice patties.

The daily yoga sessions were amazing, and it was great that the teacher managed it so well to challenge all attending people even though they were all on very different levels.

I loved all the ceremonies. They will stay forever in my heart.

"Beste Entscheidung"

Sooo unglaublich liebe Leute...fühlte sich sofort willkommen...inmitten von Reisfeldern und Dschungel dieses wundervolle kleine Yogaresort...aufgeweckt vom herrlichen Sonnenaufgang den man in jedem Zimmer sieht gings morgens los mit Meditation und yoga. Das balinese experience programm war super koko führte uns mit verschiedenen Aktivitäten wie Besuch einer Schule, Fahrradtour, selbst Reis Pflanzen, Opferschälchen basteln etc in die balinesische kultur ein. Dennoch hatte man genug freie Zeit um einfach am Pool zu relaxen. Das Essen war fantastisch...

Eine wundervolle Woche mit wundervollen Menschen und Erfahrungen. Preis -Leistung Verhältnis einfach super

"Veel voor weinig"

Ik vond eigenlijk alles leuk! Je kreeg zoveel voor het kleine beetje wat ik betaald heb. De activiteiten waren top, de mensen waren top, de yoga was top

"Wonderful stay"

The retreat week was great. Everybody was really caring and the staff were just amazing. Marcia was really doing good and varied Yoga. The food was really nice. The infinity pool was a good place to relax beside the program. Atmosphere was perfect.
