Bali – The Island of the Gods – An Indonesian Island known for its incredible natural beauty of abundant green rainforests, soft golden sand and lush terraced rice fields. A diverse culture rich in spiritual power and ceremonies, where almost everything has a spiritual meaning. From the exquisite handmade flower-petal offerings, the sweet smell of incense, the sound of traditional ‘Gamelan’ music, to the incredible ancient temples and rich aromas of cooking and spices. Bali really is the ultimate destination to tune into your personal power.
We will spend 6 nights in North Bali, away from the hustle and bustle of popular tourist areas, surrounded by peace and tranquillity. Fall asleep to the sound of the ocean & wake up refreshed to sea breezes, tropical fruits and soft sand. Watch amazing sunrises & sunsets from the shore in one of the most beautiful luxury oceanfront villas. Spread across an acre of lush grounds, surrounded by rice paddies and vineyards, the tranquil atmosphere is sure to relax you.

The second is brought to you within the Villa. A team of selected beauty therapists have been invited to pamper you in the comfort of our villa. Choose to enjoy your massage in your room, by the pool, on your private balcony or by the sea. You decide which environment suits you for peace of mind, deep healing and soul regeneration.

Feel your worries and stress melt away from you with a dip in the natural hot springs. As you immerse yourself into this mineral rich water, allow your body to let go of your worries, tension and what has been holding you back. Allow this powerful water to wash over you and release all of your unwanted stress and attachments to what is no longer serving you. The mineral water in the hot springs can help reduce stress by relaxing tense muscles, bringing you a sense of peace and calm. With three pools at varying temperatures, you will find the right one for your comfort.
Brahmavihara-Arama Buddhist Monastery
This is Bali's largest Buddhist monastery. Built over a hectare, it is comprised of numerous meditation rooms, libraries and beautiful gardens. Indulge in a sense of peace and calm standing in this very spiritual place.
A morning speed boat ride with local wild Dolphins will leave you feeling euphoric as they swim and play beside our boat. Dolphins are spiritual animals and are symbols that allow us to connect to our inner child. Feel their contagious free spirit overcome you as the play in the waters below. Their calming, innocent and happy energy will cocoon you as you move through the process of spiritual change. They provide courage, self-confidence, virtue, strength and tenacity when in rough waters. The experience of seeing these beautiful mammals in the wild will be awe-inspiring as your spiritual and self-awareness becomes heightened.
Picture being immersed amongst rich marine life on a private reef off Lovina’s coastline. See colourful reef fish, vibrant corals, sea anemones, starfish and maybe even a turtle or two during a sunset snorkelling experience. The ocean’s energy is incredibly restorative, relaxing, soothing and healing. After an afternoon being submerged in these calms waters and surrounded by marine life, you will feel energised and invigorated. If you have never been snorkelling before, there is no need to worry, as this is a very gentle and accessible reef.
Watch the sun go down from the comfort of our speedboat as you get to enjoy Bali from a different point of view, from the ocean. When we return to Lovina, enjoy a freshly prepared cocktail whilst lounging on a beanbag, with your feet in the sand as you swap stories of the beautiful fish you saw during you snorkelling experience.
