I am forever thankful to Claude, Yan and the team for organizing and hosting such a great retreat and being so kind and welcoming. This was my first solo trip and my struggle with anxiety made it very hard for me the days prior to my departure. I was actually close to cancelling if it wasn’t for Claude who kindly called me and helped me deal with my anxiety. Having spoken to such a kind person made it easier for me to go through the 17h flight and I didn’t have any problem afterwards. The staff is amazing, so you feel at home and everything is being taken care of for every small detail, such as leaving a small flower on your pillow, making sure the mosquito net is put down before the evening, etc. The retreat itself was very well thought as you had enough time on your own and to relax, while there were also activities and things taking place outside busy tourist crowded times. The experience is of a 5 star hotel and you have an amazing outdoor chill area with table some sofas and some rooms an outdoor bed. The spa is also super high quality couldn’t help myself to book most of the treatments. I met some kind people and learned a lot about Bali tradition and incredible nature. I will be back for sure!

I recently participated in the 'Escape the World' retreat at Oneworld Kumara and it was truly in a different class from other the retreat centres I have visited. The jungle setting is amazing and just walking into the retreat you start to feel relaxed by the beautiful tranquil surroundings. Yet you are not far from central Ubud and can stroll down into town in about 20 mins or the resort have a free shuttle. The rooms are all wonderful and spacious with a lovely terrace and outdoor dining area for the day of silence. The rooms and the whole retreat have a very homely feel but the service is on a par with a 5* hotel. Every little detail has been thought about throughout the retreat. You get woken up in the morning and there is already lemon-ginger tea waiting on your terrace. Once the morning yoga session in the wonderful sala is complete your breakfast is already waiting for you. The addition of things such as watercolours and incense in the rooms really add to the immersive experience of the retreat. The staff are so friendly and hard-working, there is no need to think about anything, just enjoy the wonderful experience. The food throughout the retreat is fantastic, all fresh, healthy, plentiful and most importantly delicious! They are also very good at catering to a whole range of dietary requirements. It's also a lovely touch that you are provided with most of the recipes to take home with you. Most people on the retreat, including myself, had travelled alone and it was fantastic to meet so many friendly, interesting and like-minded people to share conversations with over dinner. The yoga sessions were expertly led by Iyan and assisted by Desy, who both have a wonderful energy. It is incredible how they are able to cater to such varied needs and abilities within the class whilst also keeping each session enjoyable and interesting. I felt so much stronger and more flexible by the end of week and am really missing going to the sala twice a day for those wonderful yoga classes. The retreat also included some very special spiritual and cultural activities. The purification ritual was a real highlight as was the sunrise yoga overlooking the volcano. I thoroughly enjoyed the day of silence and found it a wonderful moment of self-discovery; the letting go ritual was also the perfect way to end the retreat. Beyond all the wonderful yoga and activities I also spent many enjoyable moments in the resort spa. The treatments were very professional, of a high standard and represented really good value for money. In particular, I would recommend the Spa Mandi Treatment which culminated in the most beautiful flower bath. The spa also specialised in Ayurveda and having attended an Ayurvedic retreat in India I can confidently say that Oneworld provides an authentic experience. Overall, Escape the World was a retreat that exceeded all my expectations and represented great value for money. If you are looking for a high quality holistic retreat with many genuine experiences and wonderful people then look no further! I will certainly be returning to Oneworld Kumara many times in the future.

I had spent a lot of time researching into One World Retreats before l booked and found it hard to believe that a place could only have such great reviews - after being there I couldn't agree more with the five star rating, just book it is all l can say! They think of everything for you and you can relax and let them do all the planning that we normally do. You get a planer when you arrive that has everything set out for you with what/when you have yoga, activities, spa treatments, meals and there is plenty of free time to do just as you want . The rooms are lovely and all quality fixtures. Room 5 and had a beautiful day bed out the front which was nice to relax in the afternoons. Inside you will find a four poster bed, writing desk (with pencils and paints) a couple of cupboards and safe. The bathroom has a great indoor/outdoor vibe to it. The retreat itself was amazing and l will book it again - yoga twice a day, a day of silence, rice field walks, bike rides and a couple of spa treatments, plus most of your meals. The food is extremely good quality and well thought out for the whole week. I managed to hurt my toe while there and the staff were so great with helping me get treatment and looking after me - above and beyond as every staff member went for all guests and they make you feel like part of the family. Thank you One World for the most amazing week that had such a positive impact on my life, keep doing what you are as your business is absolutely one of a kind.

I read so many glowing reviews about this place that I ended up feeling nervous that it wouldn’t live up to the hype! My fears were unfounded! It was so beautiful and so special & I will carry this experience in my heart forever. The food was amazing, the spa was so relaxing, the people so attentive & caring. The activities were perfectly paced so that there was time to schedule extra treatments or relaxation time. Travelling alone was absolutely not an issue as you are looked after from airport pickup and drop off if needed. Many thanks to everyone at Oneworld Retreats for the wonderful experience.

The ‘Escape the World’ retreat is a must for anyone looking to relax and disconnect from their day-to-day lives. This was a sensational week that truly changed the way I think. The activities are meticulously planned to ensure guests have the opportunity to immerse themselves in Balinese culture, exercise and of course relax. There is nothing that the Oneworld team haven’t thought of to ensure a luxurious stay; from a cup of tea left on your doorstep first thing in the morning, to the massage therapists greeting you at your room for your appointments. The food is beautiful and healthy and the yoga, albeit challenging for someone like me who has only ever done a handful of classes prior, is fantastic. Iyan and Desi were very helpful with adjusting poses to suit different levels of experience and made all guests feel welcome throughout their stay. 6/5 stars. You will not regret coming here, I assure you!
