Treat Yourself with a Bali Retreat

Treat Yourself with a Bali Retreat

It's important that we give ourselves some well-deserved r&r to unwind and regain clarity in life. If you want to truly escape routine and unplug then Bali is the answer. Known for its retreats, and its humble and friendly locals, Bali will cater for all kinds of personalities and getaways. Here are our top four retreat categories, which we think will definitely please when you next escape to the island of Bali.  

Health & Wellness retreat

Bliss out with a holistic retreat experience that incorporates physical, spiritual, mental and health related activities to help you gain a newfound appreciation for healthy and happy living. This style of retreat is aimed to provide something for everyone and is a great opportunity to sample a range of activities. Feel pampered with one of the many spa treatments on offer and take some well earnt time for yourself. For a more luxurious option check out COMO Shambhala and Fivelements, while OneWorld Retreats and Ubud Sari Health Resort provide more affordable packages. 

Yoga retreat

It doesn't matter if you're a beginner, intermediate, or yogi master, there is a yoga retreat in Bali with your name on it. Bali has become a hub for yoga and meditation retreats, especially in and around Ubud, which is known for its lush tropical forests, rice fields and numerous temples. Naya Ubud runs various yoga retreats throughout the year and provides private and group retreat packages. Be guided towards self-discovery, rejuvenation and peace of mind by the yoga and mindfulness program available at Svarga Loka Resort

Fitness retreat

If your idea of complete relaxation involves being active then a fitness retreat would be right up your alley. Emerge yourself in a variety of activities like hiking, running, pilates, CrossFit, as well as boot camp-type exercises. If you thrive being around the ocean then you should try a surfing retreat to reconnect with nature and explore the outdoors. There are many fitness retreats based on intensity and your goals, such as Ayung Sari Indah, which provides a range of fitness retreat packages.

Art retreat

Art retreats are a great opportunity to allow your creativity to flow freely. You can enjoy hours of art workshops where you can learn a range of art techniques like linocut printing, photography and traditional Balinese art. Unleash your inner creativity for fun and to experience stress-relief. Bali Art Retreats runs "week-long painting and drawing retreats" in three locations. Australian artist Christine Hingston also runs regular painting retreats in Ubud, Bali.

Whatever your interests, we guarantee that Bali will have the perfect retreat for you to help you unwind from the busyness of everyday life.
