The Amazing Villas!

Our relaxing retreat will be held at the stunning Sanglung Villas near the town of Kubutambahan in northern Bali. The small complex is made up of 3 luxury villas perched up in the hills with breath-taking views of the jungle and nearby ocean. All of the villas have been reserved solely for our use and each villa has 2 large bedrooms (either a double or a twin), 3 bathrooms (inc 2 en-suite), roomy living space and a jaw dropping infinity pool stretching out into the trees. This means no getting up at the crack of dawn to lay your towels down on sun loungers, just four of you will be sharing a pool and villa!

The Bedrooms

Each of the bedrooms has the capacity to sleep two. The setup in each bedroom is as follows. There is a large king size four poster bed and a pull out king size bed which sits on a wooden frame low down to the floor. This retreat is ideally suited to couples who would like to share the four poster bed or two friends sharing the four poster bed or who are happy for one person to sleep on the pull out bed (which in this case would remain a fixed bed in the bedroom for the duration of the retreat rather than one you have to roll away each day). The following picture shows the main bed with the pull out bed underneath…

The Bathrooms

If you are planning on coming on this retreat as a person on your own, we would pair you up with another same sex person travelling on their own. We would then suggest the person taking the four poster bed pays £50 more for the week and the person taking the low down bed pays £50 less per week. The first person to confirm their spot would get the choice of which bed they wanted to have. The bathrooms are also simply stunning and the following is a picture of one of the indoor outdoor bathrooms to whet your appetite…

Transfers

Sanglung Villas are located on the peaceful north side of the island, away from the frantic bustle of the south. The journey from the airport is approximately 2-3 hours depending on the traffic. If you plan to arrive early and get collected from Ubud, the journey should be no more than 60-90 minutes. Please note the last few kilometres approaching the villa is on unmade road and is bumpy. If you are planning to make your own way to the villa, you will need a 4x4 as a regular car will not be up to the job.

Food & Drinks

All meals will be prepared on site and served at the villas which will be as communal style setting in the main villa. The talented cooks will using as much locally produced ingredients as possible and will include freshly caught fish. If you prefer to eat vegetarian or have any other dietary requirements then please let us know when you book. Alcohol is available to purchase at the villas and can be brought with you. As we are in paradise, expect to sample some beautiful fresh coconuts by the pool...aaah bliss!

Yoga, Meditation and Qi Gong Classes

All yoga classes will be held in the villa’s recently built air conditioned yoga studio with stunning sea views! Yoga mats will be provided and we are still awaiting confirmation as to what props the studio is equipped with but if there is anything in particular that you need for your practice then either bring it with you or let us know and we can try to source whatever that may be! The morning classes will be designed to gently wake you up and stretch you out ready for a relaxing day ahead. The evening classes will be more restorative and will work on balancing out your energy. Beginners to yoga are very welcome on this retreat. There will always be options to challenge yourself but the main focus will be doing whatever it is your body needs – so if that’s rest, please listen to that!

Early on in the retreat, we will offer an introduction workshop to Meditation techniques and following on from that, there is the option to join us first thing in the morning for a 20 minute meditation practice before the first yoga class of the morning. You may find that by practicing this each day for a whole week, this kicks starts a morning meditation practice when you return to the UK…and this can be life changing (as you will find out in the motivational chats.)

After breakfast, Stretch will be leading these daily motivational talks to help inspire you and reconnect with the values you hold dear in your life.

There will be two opportunities during the week to take part in a Qi Gong practice which is quite similar to Tai Chi but a bit more free form (read less effort!) The practices have a huge array of benefits with the main ones being to promote calm, ease tension and bring balance to the energetic (meridian) systems of our body.

Remember, this retreat is for you, so you can get involved with the classes and activities as much as you like! Rest is also good for the soul so if you’d rather sleep in and skip class, you have our full permission

How to get there?

The main airport in Bali is Denpasar International Airport which can be reached from all major worldwide airports through easy connections and we usually use the skyscanner website to find great value flights. Currently flights from London Heathrow are approximately £450 but remember they tend to increase in price the nearer you get to the date.

From the airport we will arrange your transfers to the retreat which is about a 2-3 hour drive north. Please note that we will not be able to coordinate transfers with everyone’s different flight times. It is likely that the transfer will leave the international airport at approximately 2pm on the Saturday. For those in Ubud, the time is still to be confirmed but is likely to be early to mid-afternoon pickup. As soon as you book your flights, please let us know so we can group people together for the pick-up. As mentioned earlier, feel free to extend your holiday and arrive a few days earlier to get acclimatised. Remember there is an 8hr time difference between the UK and Bali so expect a little bit of jetlag but it will be worth it when you see what is waiting for you…
