It sounds as though you really made the most of your stay and all of the amazing activities on offer! We love being able to allow all of our guests the freedom to customise their stay to suit their needs.

This is a lovely place to have a refreshing start to the year! The fitness retreat was good- yoga was available also and all the spas. Also we decided to go horse riding, snorkling and walk up Mt Batur. It was all possible and the staff assisted us with booking and making these adventures happen!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share about your retreat experience. Indeed a fitness retreat is such a perfect way to launch into the new year- good on you for doing something so empowering for yourself. We love catering to our guest's goals and desires, so always do what we can to happily arrange additional excitives, excursions and sightseeing, especially when seeing and experiencing more of Bali is on your bucket list! It sounds as though you were able to indulge is so much during your special week which is exactly what we always hope for guests to walk away with. We hope that your inspiration and motivation will stay with you throughout the year and beyond. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back again soon.

I went Dec 21-Dec 28th 2019 and it was incredible. I stayed in a single room on the property and it was beyond luxurious. I chose the Ayurvedic package, which consisted of 3 hours of spa per day and then also added on with bodywork, tarot card reading and an extra surf day. I did a social media detox and was 100% disconnected from reality and it was exactly what I needed. Everyone at the resort was beyond amazing. Everything you could ever need was accommodated. I started every morning with a coconut iced coffee, a delicious breakfast and yoga.

The women on the retreat were incredible as well. Could not get a better group of women together in my opinion. The staff also were great! They really made you feel heard, loved and important. No detail was left out in planning and ensuring this was your perfect escape haven.

I could not recommend this retreat more. In fact, many of my friends have already asked me for info on it.

Feel free to look up pics on my instagram Cara8i8 to see more.

I just jumped on your instagram highlights and looked at your photos! Alongside your review, it really does look and sound like you had a magical stay! We are so thrilled that you got so much out of your retreat and how great that you were able to really enjoy every moment all that much more as you unplugged from reality- something we can indeed all benefit from in this busy world!
Thank you for sharing all the little details that made your stay so special. Starting the day with yoga, coconut iced coffee and a yummy breakfast sounds ideal :) The Ayurveda package truly is the ideal way to properly unwind, rejuvenate and nourish yourself on a deep level. 3 hours of spa and specialised treatments a day really does wonders for body, mind and soul- as you realised! How terrific that you took your healing experience even further with those special body work and tarot readings. We always find that these really add to the retreat so much and we feel lucky to be able to work with such professional, experienced and really life-changing individuals.
Its lovely to hear that you bonded so well with the group. Going over Christmas also often means the group has a special bond, as you share this special time of the year side by side. Its also lovely to hear how you felt so well looked after, heard and loved by the staff- that is such a beautiful thing to say. Our team really are incredible and we love how well the staff and guests are able to bond and develop friendships throughout the week.
Thank you again for your review and recommendation. We would love to welcome you (and your friends!) back again one day soon. xx

This is not a retreat - this is so much more!
You feel special and taken genuinely taken care of from the moment you express interest of staying at Escape Haven until your back home and beyond.
If you are looking for a place to come to a rest, recharge your batteries, heal and do something good to yourself, this place is No.1 above all other retreat I have been to!

The whole place sparks and spreads joy and love. Every little detail is to make your stay special – whatever you need. I was on the Yoga package the first week and loved it (although I am not the typical Yoga person at all!). The second week I was on the surf package and that was just hilarious! The instructors are so friendly, so supporting and so lovely that it is a sheer pleasure to have them around in every activity you do.

Packages @ Escape Haven or: what you always wanted to do!
In the Yoga package you learn a lot about the different Yoga styles from which Yoga Beats is my all time ever favorite. Wait until Franky shows the jellyfish move! :-D
Marejke and Franky are so good in teaching Yoga and meditation - it was soul healing. I considered myself anything but a Yoga person before and now have a Yoga mat and bolster at home, practicing every day...
Glurfing (glamorous surfing) is a must do for all that love the ocean. Putu carries your board, helps you with everything in the water and gives your board that nice push so that you catch the wave at the perfect time and cheers you all the way to the beach. Coconut time after the surfing and the nice transfer is sheer quality time!

Accommodation - no wait: your villa!
The villas at the resort are not just accommodation - it feels home.
I LOVED my outdoor bath so much! And the evening flower baths are just mind-blowing! The staff prepares those over 2 hours for us ladies and you feel the devotion for this when you are approaching the art of bathing (see pics).

The food - oh boy- the food!
You feel that the people at the resort are into food!
SO YUMMIE! And regardless what kind of food condition you might have - the chefs in the resort can cope with everything. Starting from (also location wise) separate toasters in case you have celiac to dairy free, gluten free sugar free still super delicious food. It is a no brainer to eat at Escape Haven.
Even the snack boxes you get for outside activities are a 12 out of 10!
The food platter at the pool is just amazing!
The restaurants you go to on Wednesdays and Thursdays are also superb. They would only send you to places they visit themselves as they never compromise on food standards!

The staff. Staff? The feel good experts!
Regardless of whom you are talking to - resort lead, service, spa staff, villa staff, drivers - my goodness - the kindest people in the world. All they care about is you. Always authentic, nothing fake, what a pleasure and how I miss all of them!
You end up seeing yourself running around with that big smile in your face all the time...:-)

Transport - or how much fun can a ride be?!
Wherever you need to go, just tell the drivers and they will take you there, making sure yiu have an enjoyable ride. I loved little miss sunshine - the golf car - soo much!

Service - you can stop thinking for yourself for a week!
Your stay is managed. 150%!
The luxury of stopping to think for yourself and have somebody managed your stay is PRICELESS! The resort lead ladies make sure you get the most out of the week(s) and on the board they let you know when your next massage or activity is.
This is such a comfort!
You want to change plans? No problem.
You need something else. No problem.
I tell you it is a hard landing back in reality after you are back in your everyday lives!

The treatments - OMG!
Book a unlimited SPA package - it is so worth it!
From deep tissue to Swedish Massage to reflexology to all the array of Ayurvedic massages...left me speechless. So good. So caring, gentle, perfect.

The activities - must do!
First week was a bike tour through the rise fields.
To be precise: they bring you by car tp a spot from which it is merely only downhill to your destination ;-) You'll visit a Balinese village and get to know more about the culture but in a very nice, un-touristic way.
Then you stop by at a temple and finish in a very nice Balinese restaurant.
The second week I did the jewelry making and that was also excellent!
You get 5gt of silver and can do with it whatever you wish - with A LOT of help from the local staff ;-) So I have a very nice necklace to remember me of the good times in Canggu!

I just rebooked for next year.
Only 293 until I am back!

Room tip: all of the rooms are super nice!

Wow! What an amazing review! Every single one of your words was a pure delight to read :) Thank you so much for taking the time to share with such detail about your stay. We are so thrilled that you got so much out of your two weeks with us at Escape Haven and it sounds as though you really made the most of your time and everything on offer, being able to see, explore and experience so much whilst also enjoying a relaxing and pampering escape.

It is wonderful to hear how much you enjoyed both the yoga and the surf package. We love welcoming all levels of yogi's and surfers on retreat and get many beginners. We also have many women arrive who are not familiar with yoga and like you, leave with a new appreciation and genuine love of the practice that they carry back home- this is priceless. How terrific you also returned home with surfing skills and such fond memories of your time in the ocean. There is nothing quite like the thrill of surfing the waves, and with our great team of supportive instructors and hands on assistance, you really get to advance your skills and have a ball each day you head out.

Thank you for your lovely review of the food! The meals are certainly always a highlight for guests and as you said, everything is always made on site with fresh ingredients and passion and skill from our great kitchen team. We know that dietary issues can prevent some people from feeling like they can travel, which is why we love being so confident in accommodating all dietary needs so, as you said, you can simply eat, relax and enjoy every mouthful!

Thank you also for your beautiful words about the grounds, the team and the service. We do go to every length we can to ensure that your stay is perfect in every way- from the moment you arrive we do our best to make you feel welcome and right at home. Its lovely to hear how much you liked your beautiful room and the bathroom too! Thank you for your kind words about the staff and we really appreciate you recognising and being grateful for all the small touches and everything that is done behind the scenes to ensure your stay is seamless. We love hearing when women say they felt as though they could really just unwind, relax and not have to think about anything- that is the sign of a great retreat! As you said, nothing is ever too much trouble and while we do go to great lengths to organise your schedule, everything is always flexible so that you have the freedom to take each day as it comes.

Well done on making the most of all the activities on offer. The cycle through Ubud is always a highlight for the Indulge and Ignite day and such a great wat to see and experience more of beautiful Bali. The jewellery making is also a lot of fun and as you said, it offers you something really special to take back home again with you.

Thank you again for everything you have shared and your glowing recommendation. We are thrilled that you have already booked for 2020 and we cannot wait to have you back again! Until then, take care and keep enjoying your daily yoga!
