The location, the property, the program, the host are all outstanding. I can’t fault this retreat. You get as much or as little as you like out of it so there’s no pressure. There’s something for everyone. I would recommend this as a solo trip so you get the most out of it. Treat yourself and look after your body and soul - best investment you can make.
I attended the Ocean Soul Retreat last November, at a point in my life when i was really needing some direction and soul searching. This was 100% the right choice and the place for me to be. I connected with so many wonderful, strong, and open women, sharing stories and sharing compassion for each other, lifting each other up. The mornings and/or evenings were filled with both serene and invigorating yoga with Amanda and mornings/early afternoons filled with soooo much fun surfing with the local surf instructors & Mel. Georgie and Charlotta organised everything SO beautifully the entire week and I felt comforted and in a safe space throughout my stay and throughout my self discovery journey (& the rooms were spacious, clean, and absolutely GORGEOUS! The entire property was gorgeous, might I add, and very safe). The sessions that we could take part in (different forms of mental/physical/emotional -type therapies) proved to be veryyy helpful as well, not to mention epic massages. The food was fresh, healthy, and simply irresistible!!!! The head chef and cooks at Ocean Soul are local legends themselves, absolutely DIVINE and so friendly and accommodating as well (as I am gf vegan). I came away from my week in Bali feeling reborn and ready to take on the world. To this day, I say it was definitely the smartest & best decision of my life signing up for this retreat. I highly recommend any woman, of any age, to look into this retreat if they are in need of some very special 'me' time, whether you're dealing with hardships of any degree or simply needing a week away from it all. This is for you! :) …
I attended the November 2018 surfing and yoga retreat. Every detail of the retreat was taken care of so I could truly relax. The food is amazing and the wellness treatments are an added bonus. The surfing instructor ratio was excellent and although I am an intermediate surfer I felt I gained so much from the instructors feedback. Do yourself a favor and book this retreat...your body and your mind will thank you.
Ocean Soul retreat was all that it advertised itself as and more! The accommodations were beautiful, relaxing and I felt completely safe even though I was in a new country by myself. The meals were thoughtfully prepared, I had a hard time picking just one favorite! Georgie and Char were absolutely wonderful! They were there to help attendees of the retreat (you could tell that these women were doing what they truly are called to do) but I feel like I've made friends for life, they were so much more than just our retreat guides! The entire experience was exactly what I wanted for my 1st trip to Bali!
I had a good time . The retreat wasn’t quite the experience I thought it would be , but an amazing one at that :) I am pretty certain I would do this retreat again and can definitely recommend it to anyone needing some time away.
