    "I found this retreat to be life changing and life saving. I had been through a relatively difficult six months and spent a lot of time doing yoga and meditation to work my way through it. In all honesty I nearly cancelled this retreat as I thought I was good and ready to start a new chapter of my life. The best thing I ever did was not cancel. "

    "I met a wonderful group of women who shared their stories. I participated in the surf / yoga option and added in some holistic therapies. The surfing was a wonderful challenge that taught me that I was able to learn new skills and take risks in a new environment. The yoga by Amanda in the afternoon is the perfect mix of spiritual meditation and exercise. I highly recommend David and the Balinese healing options. "

    "The rooms are beautiful with all the amenities you could want. The villa has wonderful staff and pool. I have never relaxed this much in my life. The food is Wow - you will thoroughly enjoy it. "

    "I will be making a retreat part of my yearly holiday experience."

    "I was hesitant to take a trip by myself as I had just come out of 5 year relationship and have never travelled on my own - particularly in such a fragile state! Ocean Soul Retreat was a welcoming sanctuary and put all my fears at ease. From the first point of contact through to walking through the beautiful blue front doors, I knew I was in for a special week. "

    "I was on the holistic healing program as I wanted to really shift some stuff on my retreat. I certainly did that!!! "

    "I went on a journey with such wonderful healers and felt so supported and understood in my process. I loved each session and they left me looking forward to see what the next one would entail. "

    "I was also really surprised at feeling 100% comfortable with all the women on the retreat, and being so honest with complete strangers. I formed strong friendships throughout the week and we have made plans to return next year together. "

    "I was also unsure how I would survive without my wine of the evening, surprisingly, I didn't miss it and have now embraced healthier evening habits. Food was great also- I think osr has done a great job of making each meal an absolute treat. I loved the team at OSR and the villa staff were really attentive as well. I will be back next year!"

    "The week at Ocean Soul Retreat was surprising, delightful and meaningful. From the minute I was picked up at the airport to the day I left, Georgie thought of everything to help me make the most of the time there. The surfing was incredible - calm, patient and fun teachers, the food was sublime and the yoga was the perfect way to cap off a day of activity. Some of the most surprising parts of the stay were the treatment: traditional Balinese Healing and life coaching. They helped to focus, refresh and reconfigure the mind. "

    "If you are looking for a retreat with meaning and substance, this is place for you."

    "Ocean Soul Retreat was such an amazing experience! I was unsure of what to expect from a retreat and was a little hesitant with having everything booked and planned for me - it turned out to be exactly what I needed! the whole week allowed me to switch off and enjoy every moment and activity. It was a week of new beginnings for me, as with a few of the other girls! !he first time I really got into a consistent yoga practice. I loved every moment of it and now have a regular practice at home that I share with my daughter!! The talks throughout the week were informative and I loved learning more about nutrition, which has helped me to practice healthier habits at home. Being a foodie - I loved the whole menu! It was so delicious and nutritious! "

    "The element I hadn't expected, was the bond that was created with the other ladies who did the retreat that week. I have walked away with a new group of friends who are my soul sisters. I highly recommend this experience, you won't be disappointed!"

  • Review by Polly from San Diego, California, USA

    "I was in search of a retreat that would touch my mind, body, and soul... and found it with Ocean Soul Retreat. I had never been on a retreat before so had no idea what to expect and wondered if I should be traveling 1/2 way around the world without knowing. But everything here was wonderful. Yoga together was great, the holistic treatments were very new for me but I was touched most by a Balinese Priestess. I wasn't sure about having a roommate... but they paired me up with a great girl! Surfing was great, culture day was cool and massages were good. And my favorite part of the day... sitting down for meals with all of the girls and Georgie... the food was so wonderful. Georgie was so informative, answered ALL of my questioning emails, and was the most wonderful host. An amazing experience I will never forget!"

    "An amazing week of surf, sun and yoga. The surf lessons were seriously good and the boys were incredibly patient with us. We progressed in one week from foam boards to a 7 foot fiberglass board, yes I know say I can surf hahah :PAs a person who is completing her naturopathy studies at the moment and running a wellness business, I can definitely say that food was wholesome and nourishing and you will definitely notice the difference in your body's plumbing ;) which is always a good sign.The yoga offered was powerful and strong but catered to what the group felt it needed on any given day. It was relaxing and I even fell asleep at one stage. I am a registered yoga teacher as well and can definitely say that Amanda was gentle but strong in her approach to teaching, which is what you want, the softness with the strength and the ease with the effort :)A big thanks to Georgie, Carly and the staff for looking after me during the week xox"

  • Review by a traveler from Darwin, Australia

    "I've wanted to do a retreat for a long time and jumped at the chance to go to Ocean Soul when it came up. It was the perfect balance of activity and relaxation. I'd never surfed before, but it was much more relaxing than I could ever have imagined. It was not only great exercise, but also fantastic for clearing my busy mind. The local surf school instructors, particularly Dedik, were excellent at their jobs. The treatments were great and finishing each day with yoga was perfect. All the staff including the surf instructor, Carly, and yoga instructor, Amanda, were so accommodating and helpful. Georgie was the perfect host with no requests too much trouble. Her attention to detail was unlike anything I'd ever experienced. The accommodation was incredible, the food delicious, and the company excellent. Everything here was perfect. There is not one thing I could complain about except I wish I had been able to stay longer."

  • Review by Shannon from Melbourne, Australia

    "I booked Ocean Soul Retreat knowing that I needed to get away and that I was in need of some serious relaxation. However, I was a little hesitant about booking into a retreat being organized by someone else and not having the flexibility or ability to change the plans. Despite my concerns, it was the complete opposite! Georgie and the team were extremely accommodating to any changes, needs, and were extremely flexible. I had the perfect holiday that catered for my needs. The combination of everything was the key. The surfing was exciting, the yoga was relaxing and challenging, the food was nutritious and delicious, and the therapies were inspiring. It was a complete wellness experience. I felt blissful and recuperated, and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for the retreat experience. It's a real retreat and you will come back absolutely rejuvenated, fresh, and ready for the challenges ahead."

    "Ocean Soul Retreat was all we hoped for and so much more. I can't recommend it enough for anyone wanting to do something special for themselves. We rebooted our bodies and thinking within only the first few days and loved the Surf School Bali guys. Learning to surf was so much fun! But for us, access to Ocean Soul Retreat's healers and experts in well-being was epic. My sessions literally transformed me. The team is amazing and the villa is simply the best. I loved every minute of it, and I am still feeling the ongoing benefits from that week. You'll never regret any time or focus spent investing in yourself and Ocean Soul Retreat is the place to do it. Bali is the perfect place for a time to be all about you."

We had yoga at the end of each day to stretch out those muscles, the food is exceptional every bite was an explosion of flavor.This retreat helped me find my inner self, I become more in touch with my mind, body and soul. My week at OS allowed me to come home with a clear direction of my future path."
