Certificate of Excellence

Participated in the Escape the World retreat with Iyan and Wayan - what wonderful, caring and knowledgeable gentlemen. Yoga was excellent, my body loved the stretching. Food was delicious and plentiful. Staff cared and nurtured us with their smiles and respectful of our peace and quiet times.
All the treatments as in massages, facials were first class - I can still picture the bathtub full of water with flower petals floating on the top! The activities outside the retreat were outstanding, even the bike ride. I miss it all and will be back! Thank you to all...........

Escape the world retreat was an amazing and unforgettable experience. Waking up to do meditation and yoga every morning with such beautiful yoga teachers, who have such great aura and energy was pure bliss, food served each day would only get better and better, to learn about the balinese cultural was certainly inspiring, and what can i say the staff of Kumara Sarti were always happy, friendly and no job was ever too small or too big. Claude,Iyan and the team you have done an amazing job to create what is truly a place to escape the world, i look forward to joining you again hopefully really soon.
Namaste

I attended the' Escape the World' retreat and cannot speak highly enough of the programme or Kumara Sakti. ETW is a very well designed retreat which balances yoga/meditiation/Balinese culture which I found to be perfect. I would consider myself an intermediate yoga practitioner and still found it challenging enough to be satisfying. The guided meditation was excellent, but it was the cultural aspects that I found most rewarding. Balinese culture and lifestyle is so fascinating it was wonderful to be able learn more about it.. the purification ritual, making offerings and the information given during the rice terrace walk was very memorable.

The resort is 20mins from Ubud - an easy walk or take use of the free shuttle which will drop you off and pick you up when you ask, no fixed times. The grounds of the resort are AMAZING. Set into the hillside in the jungle its full of lush little nooks and crannies and is like your own little secret garden. All the villas/rooms are slightly different in layout and outdoor areas. All gorgeous. Be aware there are not TVs in the rooms, but there are lovely little touches like watercolour paints/ pencils/paper for use during the day of silence. There is a ready supply of insect repellent provided in the rooms and all communal areas such as the yoga pavillion and dining room. The dining room also has tea, coffee, the best ginger tea, fruit and water available 24hrs.

The food served during the retreat deserves a special mention. Absolutely delicious!!!!! I chose to go vegetarian for the week and did not feel at all deprived. Most meals had two-three courses and the quality and quantity could not be faulted.

The hospitality and service provided by the staff, absolutely fautless. They were brilliant and were Claude and Iyan who run the resort. The spa treatments were sublime, the best I have experienced. Make sure you take your camera with you to take photos of the amazing views of thre rice terraces you look onto from the upstairs spa rooms.

All in all I could not recommend Oneworld Retreats highly enough. I am certainly thinking of making it an annual event for myself. Everyone deserves this!

An amazing week of yoga and raw food which was all new for me. the staff were attentive and there were plenty of activities, but not so many that I didn't have some alone time. I travelled alone, but there was a couple on the same retreat so i think it would be great either way.
