I stayed at the Floating Leaf Eco Retreat from 14-19 June in my first solo trip to Bali.
It was my first solo trip abroad so naturally I was a little nervous. I touched base with the owners via email before my trip and immediatley heard back, I had my queries answered and was provided with extra useful information to prepare me for my trip.
I arranged an airport transfer and was greeted by two friendly staff members from the retreat awaiting my arrival.
Upon arrival at the retreat I was greeted by Mikaku and a team of staff. I was instantly made to feel part of the family, given a tour of the retreat and spoke with Mikaku about the activities I would like to do whilst I was there. At my request, Mikaku was able to organise a tour a day trip of cultural immersion day, a trip to the holy springs and traditional healer, a day out surfing and a trek up the volcano. Nothing was too much trouble to arrange.
The retreat itself is visually stunning whilst boasting vibrant colours and in a mostly open plan layout. The villas are very comfortable and have all the necessitates needed for a great stay. The retreat boasts recycled furniture and local artworks. There are some great spaces where you can just chill out, read a book and a enjoy the sunset.
The spa services were very affordable and the staff were fantastic. I had couple of treatments during my stay and always felt refreshed and relaxed after the treatments.
The food was always freshly prepared and absolutley delicious! They follow the real food concept which ensures that everything you eat is packed full of micronutrients and is good for you!
The retreat has the best yoga hall I've ever been in with incredible views of rice fields and the ocean. The yoga classes were great and one of my trip highlights.
I highly recommend the Floating Leaf Eco Retreat to experience a different and in my opionion a better side of Bali! I had a fantastic stay and cannot thank Mikaku, Putu and the rest of the team at FLER enough for taking such good care of me!
