You will be staying at Slow Villas and Spa. The villa has ten contemporary luxury villas with Balinese concept. Each room offers the same comfort - one or two bedroom villas with terrace, swimming pool, kitchenette and office space, comfortable sunbeds, and lovely coconut garden.
Designed by the architect Christian Lechien, the spa at Slow Villas adds a wellness appetite to the villa complex, which is essentially designed for you to recharge and fully relax: three massage rooms, a bath for relaxation and a pilates or yoga studio. The Slow Spa’s architecture is inspired by the round curves of the island, making you think of a bamboo cathedral. The central window adds air and light to the whole ensemble with gentle curves.
The peaceful feeling and the silence are supporting the architecture that’s built around the natural elements, thus recalling Slow’s philosophy. The treatments: massages, facials, treatments for hands and feet, and therapy through movements, respond to their belief at Slow in relation to wellness. For Slow Spa’s signature treatments, Slow Retreats use products that are natural and alive, especially fresh aloe vera cultivated on-site.
Join Slow Retreats to experience a really special week of mind and body wellness filled with yoga, fitness, and relaxation as well as a taste of the Indonesian culture and lifestyle.

Hooping is a fantastic way to tone the troublesome tummy area, but there are many other benefits that can be gained from spinning a hoop, namely improved strength, coordination and calorie burning, as well as the undeniable enjoyment factor!
The most important thing, Slow Retreats hope to achieve is quite simply, a lot of fun! Some people come for an intense abdominal and cardio workout, some come for the first time just hoping to learn how to keep a hoop spinning around their hips!
It is an undeniable truth that how you feel on the inside, affects how you feel on the outside, so Slow Retreats hope your mind will focus on the fun as they help your body focus on the fit. Slow Retreats love hooping, and hope that after a Hula Hoop class, you will be left feeling lighter in both step and spirit, which is a great place to start (or continue) the journey towards long- term success of a happy and healthy mind and body!
