Our top 10 reasons to try a women's wellness retreat in Bali




Been thinking about trying a wellness retreat but haven’t taken the plunge?


Here’s our top 10 list of reasons we think you should dive right in


1. Do something just for you.

First, a question. When was the last time you did something just for you? Most of us are so busy with the hustle and bustle of everyday life that it’s hard to even answer that question. So, this is officially your sign! We know we need to fill our own cup before we fill others but as women, we rarely do it - but I promise that everyone wins when we do. Retreats provide the perfect setting to forget about your worries and commitments, and allow you to relax and unwind, come back to your centre and breathe!


2. A time for reflection and renewal

It’s an opportunity to reflect, reassess and renew. Retreats provide a time to stop, take a step back and reflect on our lives, reassess our priorities and habits and make improvements with a fresh mindset, away from our routines. When we pause and step away from the daily grind, it gives us a chance to really consider our lives and decide where we’d like to make changes and how we can reset our compass to plan for the future we’ve always dreamed of.


3. Shift your thinking & try something new

Most wellness retreats will offer a combination of healing therapies, health-based activities like yoga & meditation and wonderful workshops that empower you with new knowledge that enriches your life forever. Things like traditional cooking classes and nutrition advice that you can implement into your life when you return home or art classes that unlock your creativity and unleash the child within.


4. Discover new places with expert advice

The beauty of a wellness retreat is that the hosts have done the leg work for you and have the low down on the most amazing places to go, best food to eat, and sights to see. Whether it’s a waterfall immersion & purification ceremony, a healing session with a Sharman or an awe-inspiring traditional ceremony, you can rest assured that your hosts are highly knowledgeable and have curated the most amazing experiences for you to enjoy.


5. Enjoy free time to explore

There’s always lots of free time to tailor your experience, whether it’s extra pampering time, shopping up a storm, or time to explore and choose your own adventure. Your hosts can give you advice and tips on how to get there, help you with bookings and make sure at the end of your trip, your bucket lists are ticked.


6. Travel in safety

Retreats provide a safe environment where you can discover new places in the safety of a group setting. Whether you’re travelling solo or with a friend, you can relax in the knowledge that you are being looked after. For some, it makes travel possible where it wouldn’t normally be and it’s one less thing to worry about so you can get the most out of your experience.


7. Make friendships that last a lifetime

If hanging out with a bunch of amazing, like-minded women, and forging new friendships that last a lifetime sounds like your cup of tea, then retreats and you are a match made in heaven. There’s nothing more empowering than women who come together and take a step out of their comfort zone, experiencing new places and learning together along the way, while forming the most rewarding new friendships. It’s a truly life-transforming experience and we’re all for it.


8. The food is to die for

This one speaks for itself; 7 days of the most scrumptious, nutritious, chef-prepared organic meals sounds like just the ticket. Think dragonfruit smoothies, tropical brekkie bowls, and the most delicious traditional Balinese meals waiting for you as the sun sets on your fun-filled day.


9. Immerse yourself in nature & experience a new culture

Bali is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful and magical places in the world - they don’t call it the Island of the Gods for nothing! The people are some of the most friendly and kind you’ll ever meet. Again, this one is all about the insider knowledge of your hosts and the fact that they’ve chosen the very best experiences for you. With a wealth of local knowledge, you’ll marvel at the incredible sights, from the colourful streets, the breathtaking beaches and the lush tropical jungle all while learning all about the traditional Balinese culture.


10. Awaken the goddess within

We don’t know what it is, but every time we retreat, we come back looking and feeling about 5 years younger. Maybe it’s the fresh air, the sun-kissed skin, the nourishing food, the overdue dose of vitamin sea, the stimulation to our senses, the genuine rest or the fact that we’ve made friendships and memories to last a lifetime, laughed til our stomachs hurt and our souls feel rejuvenated and free. The retreat facelift is real and the goddess is awakened, and without even realising, we are empowered with a smile from ear to ear, confidence levels at an all-time high, and a heart that is full to bursting.


When you return, you’ll feel renewed, refreshed, and regenerated with a brand-new outlook, motivated to live your very best life with a spring in your step and a very happy heart.
