Exploring the culture

You will not find any other place in the world like Bali island. Also known as the Land of the Gods, Bali appeals through its sheer natural beauty of looming volcanoes and lush terraced rice fields that exude peace and serenity. As you will spend seven days on this unique island, you cannot help but be impressed in the great cultural heritage of Bali, dramatic dances, colorful ceremonies, art, and craft.

With purification ceremonies and spiritual journeys to a sacred holy water temple, you will be immersed in the authentic Balinese culture: learning how to do offerings and prayers, getting blessings from the local priests, and discovering hidden spiritual symbolism in everyday life. Bliss Body Retreats simply wants you to feel the magic of this unique and wonderful land and open your heart to this island as they do.


"I came here having some prior yoga experience and knowledge of spiritual aids but this retreat really taught me a lot that I did not fully understand before. Vlada and Olha dug deep when explaining why we should be eating raw and what it does for us. You could tell the way they executed the experience and timeline of everything was very carefully planned out – from the types of yoga and meditation, to the meals we were eating. I will carry so much of the valuable lessons I learned during this retreat with me the rest of my life and am inspired to be more connected with my body, mind, and spirit. I definitely recommend this retreat for anyone wanting to better themselves and their life." Thanh (USA)

Venue Highlights

The lovely and ultra-private villa is nestled in the Balinese foothills beneath the very small, traditional village. It is set at the jungle’s edge, atop a vast amphitheater of rice paddies cascading down into the deep gorge of the holy river. The villa complex commands a panoramic view of a distant ridge of nine ancient volcanoes.

Matching this iconic essence-of-Bali view, the villa itself is equally enchanting. It was created as a stylish, spacious and comfortable family home and is clearly cherished; bursting with character and personal touches.
Accommodation is designed with lovely panoramic views of rice paddies, jungle, and mountains. The master suites have a king size bed with a wrap-around terrace and glass windows that allow you to enjoy the most of the outside beauty. The en-suite bathroom has a custom-made bathtub, hand carved from a giant tree and overlooking the rice paddies.

The living and entertainment areas are separated via the infinity pool that runs between through the house. A small wooden bridge is used to cross over. The living area has comfortable seating space to relax and enjoy the rustic surroundings.
Beyond the villa, sure-footed guests may make their way gingerly down to the river or stroll through the rice fields where colorful penjors flap in the wind to discourage birds, and daily offerings are left at shrines to Dewi Sri, the goddess of prosperity and rice.
