A Truly Unforgettable Experience I am traveling solo in Bali for a month and finding the perfect retreat was a top priority. The Art Retreat was everything I had hoped it would be, and more. I had the Master Suite and I felt like a queen. The accommodations make you feel one with nature while being extremely clean and comfortable. I had also never eaten Vegan before so I was a little nervous. However, the food was absolutely delicious and I was pleasantly surprised how much was included! But what really makes this retreat stand out, are the people. The second I got there I felt like I had a second family. I actually ended up extending my stay 4 more days after the retreat because I just couldn't say goodbye to the incredible Ark and they people there. This retreat is the perfect mix of yoga, meditation, healing and Balinese Culture. It was a full schedule but I still had plenty of down time by the pool to lay out and read :) If you are considering a retreat, do yourself a favour and go to the Ark. I am ecstatic with my experience and will 100% be coming back in the future. Love you guys! XX, Talyn.

The pool and infrared sauna overlooking the rice fields are perfect for your free time to relax, rest, reset and recharge, and dropping into self-care and nourishment.
The latest addition to the Ark is the Yoga Shala. It has been gorgeously designed with hardwood floors and a traditional thatched roof , offering a beautiful space for practising meditation, yoga and other activities. The Shala overlooks the Ark Gardens and pool, and its open air design provides a space that makes you want to come back for more and more classes, or simply just spend time there relaxing and soaking up the positive energy.
The Shala has overhead fans, stereo system, yoga mats, bolsters, blankets, cushions, and musical instruments.
The Ark is designed around a central communal living area which makes for a perfect location to relax and enjoy your new found friends. To eat meals, listen and play music, read a book or relax. The lounge area overlooks a valley containing a river and rice fields. Sit and watch the sun setting while you eat dinner and ponder the world.

The space is gorgeous, perfectly located in the heart of Penestanan, (a prefered destination in Ubud), distant from the craziness of crowded Ubud Center, but still close enough to explore its offerings- that is if you ever want to leave!
