Wow what an amazing adventure I had at ONEWORLD retreat in Ubud. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I was a bit nervous about travelling alone, but there was about 8 other solo female travellers in the group and we all became firm friends by the end of dinner on the first night. The staff at the retreat make you feel completely comfortable. Rooms are clean and spacious. The spa treatments are incredible (the flower bath has to be seen to be believed) and the food was delicious. Clean, healthy and with a Balinese twist it was exactly what you want to eat when you are doing yoga twice a day for 6 days. I am vegetarian and gluten free and they made sure that my dietary requirements were catered for at all times - the GF banana bread was so delicious! The cultural trips we took every day were experiences I feel like I never would have seen or done had I not done this retreat. We visited a sacred temple and participated in a purification ritual, we did a 22km downhill bikeride through tiny little rural villages and we walked through the Balinese countryside visiting local artists and feasting at an organic cafe overlooking the rice paddies. It was a truly magical trip that I will remember for the rest of my life and I cannot recommend it enough. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.
