Retreat headerHave you been losing focus on what really makes you happy? Is it time to just relax and have some fun?

“I have been quietly working on bringing you a series of retreats for some time now and I am pretty excited to release my very first retreat for you to immerse yourself into. We are going to have so much fun with the activities I have carefully planned for you…and me of course. These are the things I love about magical and beautiful Bali and I want to share them with you." – Angelique  

Please note this retreat is for women AND men…

Where will you be staying?

I am so excited about the two different locations that we will be staying at for our retreat; Sideman and then Penestanan in Ubud. I have specifically chosen these locations for their peacefulness and tranquillity – so you can immerse yourself in both the retreat and also the tranquil surroundings.

In Sideman, we are staying at Sawah Indah. It’s situated in the heart of the rice paddies and surrounded by rustic village life. The seclusion means we are away from the hustle and bustle whilst we begin our retreat. There are no retail shops to be distracted by – well, maybe the odd little silver shop or sarong shop!

The drawcard of this accommodation is it’s swimming pool.  It’s no secret I love the water and this infinity pool is simply the most stunning I have ever seen. This is one of my favourite places in the world.  It overlooks a valley of rice paddies; the pool is a central feature which catches the morning rays of sunshine as the sun climbs over the hills and is gloriously indulgent in its simplicity and elegance.

In Penestanan, Ubud, we are staying at a small resort called Y Resort.  It only has 22 rooms, so it is small in comparison to some of the larger resorts of the area.  This means we are very well looked after.  Of course, there is also a large pool in the centre of the property…yes, water again! I can’t help myself.

We have a private room for our morning circle so we can have our privacy and start the day off together in a calm and intentional way.

There may be other guests at both of the venues. Most people tend to keep to themselves as these locations are known for their seclusion and peacefulness and that’s exactly why I have chosen them.

What’s Included?

  • Two nights’ accommodation at Sawah Indah in Sideman and six nights’ accommodation at Y Resort, Penestanen, Ubud. Both venues include a private room with air-conditioning, bathroom, tea / coffee making facilities and a small bar fridge.
  • All breakfasts are included.
  • Most lunches and evening meals are included; some at our accommodation and some off site. Generally, if we are not eating as a group, the meal will be at your own expense. Anywhere we eat will have both local Indonesian and western options. Please note all alcohol is also at your own expense (apart from a Welcome Drink and a Farewell Drink – see below).
  • Please advise any food allergies or intolerances so we can cater to your needs.
  • Daily morning circle most days. This will involve meditation, setting intentions for the day, sharing (not compulsory, but welcome) and some other activities.
