“Ladies... now is your time to find YOUR BLISS!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I can go on and on about my experience at Bliss but actually you should just go do it for you. Women need these sanctuary's for their well being inside and out and the Bliss Team have created the perfect environment to help you do whatever you want on your holiday, from finding yourself, to getting inner peace right through to just having a fab holiday and anything else in between you can think of.

The Bliss Team are exceptional from the incredible women who prepare delicious meals at any time you like, to Ketut, the driver / tour guide and Bali's best asset for finding you perfect things to do or see, to the massage ladies and of course the lovely hostesses.

My experience was very spiritual as I have now found Bali to be quite the sacred spiritual energy ground. As an Australian (who lives in London) I was more than dubious about Bali as my holiday destination however I stayed away from touristville, thanks to Ketut and his advice and found the most incredible places to visit.

My suggestions to anyone visiting, Sami the Healer = AMAZING. Your daily massages are FANTASTIC! Have your tarot read if nothing else but for fun! The eco cycling tour is incredible as well. But do this for you! For whatever your reason, you deserve it, when you love you, all else will be right in your universe..

Nikki, thankyou so much for your expressive review and for sharing it was a spiritual experience for you. The experiences are so different for every woman, some are not seeking spiritually at all and have lots of fun and frivolity while others are seeking something a bit deeper like yourself. I am very proud that we have an amazing sanctuary that caters for each individual to follow their own bliss, and so very thankful you found yours. Bliss Love, Zoe and the Bliss team xxx

I have been back to reality for almost two weeks now and I'm still feeling the effects of Bliss. As I look at the photos posted by other travellers and read their reviews I reflect and I think, yes, that is exactly what it was like, only maybe better. You won't be disappointed. Bliss delivers everything it promises and more. The small surprises Bliss offers make it a really special and caring environment. It was my first time to Bali and I felt like I was staying with life long friends. I felt really cared about and I knew that the staff at Bliss really cared that I got exactly what I came to Bliss for. I have recommended Bliss to all the women I have spoken to and made the men totally jealous. I would definitely go back to Bliss. In an ideal world I'd take every women I really cared about to Bliss every year to regroup. Well done Zoe and team.

Dear Karen, I hope getting back to reality wasn't too hard and that you had your deep inner rest and memories to fall back on :) I'm so pleased you felt cared for and appreciated all the extras we provide with love. For us it's not about listing everything we do before you get there, but over delivering once you are there and I feel so happy that this made all the difference for you. You can really feel the love at Bliss through every staff member, every plant, the comfy beds, the beautiful nurturing massages and the amazing food! I'm glad you felt it too :) Bliss Love, Zoe, Karen, Eka and the amazing Bliss team Zx

Its been four months since I traveled on my first solo holiday to Bali. This alone demonstrates how busy my life has been and continues to be. My decision to go it alone was driven by the sheer need to allow myself to stop and be taken care of which I knew I'd struggle with but so desperately needed. I typed in women who travel alone/bali and Bliss came up. Much research later I bit the bullet and booked trying not the feel the mother guilt of leaving my 18 year old behind. Yes, 18!
From the moment I left Brisbane I was quite apprehensive about how I would be but I have to say, without a shadow of a doubt, it was the best thing I have ever done.
I was met at the airport by the driver who was utterly enchanting, driven to a serene villa and met by the hostess who simply was the breath of calm supportive reassurance filled air I needed. From that point, nothing was too much. My room was exquisite, the bathroom filled with beautiful flowers and lotions I loved, the food utterly divine and the treatments out of this world. If I wanted to be alone I could be, if I wanted to sit at the fabulous table and eat with wonderful people and share the amazing food cooked by fabulous chefs, I could. The chocolate/fruit in the fridge and supply of cold/hot drinks on tap coupled with a huge dvd collection to while away a sublime night of indulgent alone time in a crisp and succulent bed was simply divine.
Trips were organized on your wishes, I chose the bike tour which was fantastic! I thought being on my own would make me stick out but the more time I spent on my own, the more I enjoyed just being me. No one to answer to, no compromising, it was so refreshing!
Another day the driver took me to Ubud, pointing out various sites along the way and always so helpful, waiting patiently whilst I wandered around looking at monkeys, shops and eating the most amazing food.
So, before I lose your attention with my rambling what I will say is this. I was working so hard, for so long and trying to keep so many people happy I was either heading for a breakdown or my hamster wheel was about to fly off into space. Bliss is just what it says. It gives you confidence to go it alone, takes care of you like my own mum and gave me the opportunity to simply stop, breath and be. It will continue to bring me amazing memories of the people and has given me to confidence to go it alone again without another thought. I owe Bliss a lot and can say without a shadow of a doubt, you will love it too. You owe it to yourself.

Bliss is the perfect place for women who are travelling solo - who want to unwind and take a break. You can basically do as much or as little as you like. If you think you deserve to do something special for yourself then go to Bliss! If you like the idea of swimming, reading, meeting lovely people, relaxing, massages, facials, travelling to interesting places, yoga, deliciously beautiful food, peace, tranquillity, warm and friendly staff and basically just doing whatever you want at your own pace in a truly beautiful setting, then Bliss will be perfect for you!

I had a week to spare in Bali after my fiancé went home and decided to book myself into Bliss. It was absolutely perfect. I felt safe and comfortable the whole time. It was a great experience and I've recommended this place to a number of friends already.

What an awesome experience. This was the first time I had travelled alone in over 15 years so I was a little nervous but I was so well taken care of I had nothing to worry about,right from my first booking enquiry.once I arrived at Denpasar airport & was met by katut, I felt totally secure. As soon as I walked into bliss, into the pool garden I was at total ease. I have not felt so relaxed in a very long long time. All of the staff were wonderful and I immediately felt I belonged there. I would recommend bliss to any women wanting to travel to Bali but have peace & quiet, hustle and bustle if you want to venture into it and feel completely looked after every minute!

From the moment I enquired about staying at Bliss I felt like I was chatting with friends, it is a place where you can be yourself and truly relax (whilst be pampered like a princess)
After a few days in Bali on my own I thought I don't realy need to go to Bliss I'm enjoying myself travelling alone and doing OK.
That was until I walked through the gates of the Villa where not only the temperature seems cooler and the air more tranquil but you really feel like you have walked into your own private heaven.
The rooms are superb with every attention to detail you could wish for, the food is the best I've had in 9 visits to Indonesia, the daily spa treatments are indulgent and of the highest quality, and the staff literally greet you with a warm embrace.
Highly recommend you start the morning with a yoga/meditation class if anything for the bike ride there!
Thank you Bliss for exceeding my every expectation and more!

Room Tip: All the rooms are fabulous but I think mine overlooking the pool was the best

Bliss Sanctuary for Women is a truly fantastic place to stay! I was seeking a relaxing holiday break from work and a hectic life and that is exactly what I got... and more! Truly pampered and wonderfully taken care of by the Bliss team in every way. I loved that Bliss was intimate and friendly. The hostess assistance to plan and organise any activities we wished to do was amazing. I highly recommend to any women travelling as a must stay destination!

Dear Kelly,
Thankyou so much for taking the time to write a TA review as so many of our guests do. It really helps future guests looking for something so out of the ordinary in terms of kindness, care and somewhere that you can have deep rest and follow your own bliss and have your OWN room. We are so different to a retreat (schedules, shared rooms, group activities) which sets us apart uniquely and our hostesses taking care of everything really allows you to have deep rest plus a cultural experience and to follow your own bliss. Thankyou so much for loving this and trusting us with your well deserved holiday. Bliss Love, Zoe, Kari and our amazing Bliss Staff Zxxx
