“Life Changing Experience”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

I had the most amazing time at the Fresh Start Cleansing retreat. It reall was a life changing experience and I highly recommend it. The staff were fantastic and could do enough to make my stay as pleasant as possible. The accomodation was lovely and I spent far too much time gazing from our private terrace into the tropical gardens and the rice feilds beyond - the veiw was sublime.
I felt nurtured and cared for and the spa treatments were wonderful set in a picture perfect location.
The morning Qi Qong was the best way to start the day.The food was fantastic! I was glowing with good health when I left.
I will without a doubt be visiting Kumara again.

I loved every minute of our 5 days at Kumara. The rooms are spacious with beautiful views of the rice fields. The 5 days were extremely well organised and there was enough time to do your 'own thing', have massages and just enjoy your surroudings. The yoga with Iyan and Wayan was fantastic! It was hard to believe that the food was so healthy - choc mousse made with avocado yum. Ive missed the ginger tea as it was a great way to kick start and end the day. The staff went out of their way to help. This was excellent value for money and I hope to do another retreat soon.

What a fantastic yoga retreat! The accommodation was very spacious, clean and modern – and with beautiful views. The staff were excellent – they couldn’t help you enough and everything was very organised. The yoga was intense but really good – I would recommend that you have some yoga experience, however Iyan and Wayan catered really well to different levels of experience. A highlight was yoga during sunrise at the volcano – incredible! All the activities were really well planned and so lovely – the team are really thoughtful and the activities gave a great taste of Balinese culture. The food during our stay was great! Healthy and really tasty (and I wasn’t expecting three course dinners every night...yum!). The spa treatments were also great, so relaxing and a great spa vicinity – the Mandi Lulur flower bath was a highlight. We had a lovely mix of people from around the world in our group which also added to the experience. Overall, the retreat really was fantastic – it exceeded my expectations in every facet and was also fantastic value for money. In addition, we really felt that the retreat was for us and that the team at OneWorld do all that they can to make sure that everyone enjoys their time there. Every detail was so thoughtful (down to the water colours and paintbrushes in the room, and the incense gifted to us on our departure). I thoroughly recommend OneWorld Kumara for a fantastic (and great value for money) holiday / retreat – I’m hoping I can go back!

My decision to attend this particular retreat was a no-brainer after reading all the positive reviews. I went to Bali specifically for the retreat and what attracted me was the fact it was all inclusive of transfers, meals, massages, activities and the Yoga. Had I stayed somewhere else in Ubud, it is likely, I would not have had the motivation to attend as much Yoga as was part of the timetable at Kumara - the Yoga and meditation was ...nurturing. This was my first sojourn on my own and I loved every minute, though I did Skype back home every day. Loved meeting people from other states and countries. The healthy food was amazing and I am looking forward to getting the recipes.Tip come a day earlier, so you can book an extra massage and a pedicure. Yes the pedicures are likely more expensive, than in Ubud, but it was sooo relaxing with an endless cup of sweet ginger tea, overlooking the beautiful landscape. Next time I won't bother with bringing my yoga mat, it took up too much space, but I will bring another pair of bathers as mine took a long
while to dry in the humidity. I did use the laundry which was efficient and nominal. The staff are all truly exceptional, from the morning bell ringer to the teachers Iyan and Wayan. I am looking forward to my next trip with great anticipation.

Room Tip: I stayed in the teachers room, got a discount because of construction noise. It had an outdoor bath...

I had a absolutely wonderful time at the yoga retreat at Kumara. Kumara an outstanding place to stay at, the yoga was excellent, the activities fun ( purification ritual at the temple, yoga overlooking a volcano, cycling, rice field walk, learning how to make a Balinese offering), very friendly staff, spa treatment very good, comfortable rooms, food was delicious.
To sum up, I would like to say that I spent a gorgeous time at Kumara, cultural, spiritual and fun all at the same time.

Yoga, amazing area, friendly staff. Totally worth the money I loved it.
Spa treatments every day if you want it. A gorgeous insight into some local traditions and ceremonies.
Just far enough away from central Ubud to be relaxed and still close enough to shop. Do it you will not regret it.

This retreat is absolutely one of the kind! I can't even begin to say how amazing it is. The owners have done such an phenomenal job. From day one to the very last minute, everything is thoughtfully planned out. The staff are the kindest, always smiling and courteous. The spa treatments are the best with a breathtaking view to look at. The food is delicious and exciting. The rooms are clean and very nice and the place is close enough to Ubud that you can either walk or take the complimentary ride for less than 10 minutes.

All together,It's truly a priceless experience. It's spiritual, cultural and fun at the same time. You can be sure you'll leave this place totally zen, connected and balanced.

Room Tip: Room #10- Beautiful view
