“Bliss is magic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2014

Thought I should share my experience at Bliss Sanctuary for Women as this helped me decide where to stay when i was looking for a place to get away, rest, relax, have fun, be pampered and feel safe. From the moment I booked my trip, the hostesses were in contact with me providing support and answering all my questions (even the dumb ones). I arrived at the airport with Katuk holding up my sign and felt very relaxed that I would arrive at Bliss without any stress or thinking. I arrived and stayed for 8 days and 7 nights and can't rate the experience high enough. The service, pampering, food, yoga, meditating, reading, swimming, bike riding, trip to Ubud, shopping, great coffee and great women was brilliant. It really is the perfect destination for women travelling on their own. I absolutely recommend Bliss to stay and relax. I can't wait to go back!

I stayed at Bliss sanctuary early June. I was keen for some 'me time' and wanted somewhere comfy and easy (no thinking involved) as a solo traveler. I had done a lot of research of retreats and solo traveller options but loved the sound of Bliss, which is not a retreat but a sanctuary, as there were no restrictions, limitations or timetables applied.

From the moment I met Ketut at the airport and heard roxette playing I knew I was in good hands (matched the reviews I had been reading:) ). Similarly it was lovely meeting Shar, one of the awesome hostesses, who upon meeting me handed me a fresh cold towel, beautiful juice and told me she had gone ahead and booked me in for a massage for that very afternoon.

So what I loved:
- loved the super comfy beds and feeling nice and secure with the mosquito nets. I also loved the air humidifier which infused essential oils into the room (they have selection of essential oils to choose from if you ask). In fact I bought one on my return home. Outdoor bathroom was a real novelty too.
- beautiful pool, which most of the time I had all to my self
- Just how friendly and sincere all the staff are, always smiling and giving a hug. This place really does feel like a 2nd home.
- daily 1.5 hr treatments each day was amazing- vira and wayan are fab and was lovely getting to know them on a personal level too.
- Bruce (resident pet dog) is too cute and very therapeutic to give pets/cuddles to.
- food was lovely and very authentic and yes those banana pancakes are to die for. Evening banquet meals were very special, and you could really see and taste the effort that goes in from the staff, including meeting the individual needs of each guest- ie the girls in the kitchen quickly latched on to my love of chilli chop chop. The social element was also great. I also liked the fact on a couple of occasions I forgoed dinner for a chance to trial a few places in town (sorong and mexicola) and this was totally fine. Even better i was able to find another guest to join me, so no solo dining for me:). Potato head sunset cocktails with Shar and the group was also special.
- The hostesses on my trip Shar and Pip do a great job- they hold a wealth of knowledge (if they don't know they'll find out). I loved their sense of humor and both were always easy to have a chat with and presented as authentic and unique in their own way which is lovely. Thank you to Shar for putting me at ease that doing nothing is okay, something that I find hard to do; as well as putting up with my indecision at times ;) for the first three days I did nothing: well apart from eating, lazing by the pool, treatments and a stroll along to echo beach to watch the sunset with a bintang. My bliss!

So thankyou to all at Bliss, my only regret is not booking for longer *unfort left extending stay too late and they were fully booked. Hoping to return again might need to start a Bliss account:)

Dear hayleyno1, I'll happily get that bliss account started for you lol. Thankyou so much for sharing such an amazing review. I noticed the word authentic came up a lot and I so appreciate you sharing that. It is important to me as the owner and founder that what you see is what you get ... and more. Everything comes from the heart at Bliss, including a high standard with everything so that you can relax and not worry about a thing. I am so thankful you were able to experience this.

I never thought you can feel that much friendly and close to your hostesses when you are traveling , I have stayed 1 week at bliss and it was an opportunity to meet amazing women and make great friends.
Bliss for me is like a family I did not feel I am staying far from home .

Dear TulipDXB,
I am so sorry we didn't live up to your full expectation to only receive a 4/5 but i also think thats fair when coming from a place like Dubai with 6 star Hotels :) A beautiful Bali Villa is a very different experience to the opulence of that place! I am very thankful however that you enjoyed your stay and still got the experience you needed. Thankyou for your kind words and for sharing. Bliss Love Zoe and our loving staff Zxxx

Before arriving at Bliss I was completely stressed out! My first session of daily spa treatments started to reverse the damage. The accommodation at Bliss was lovely, a large sized room, large comfy bed, very clean, resort-like decor, and a huge, clean, tropical bathroom. The service was spectacular, the friendly team catering to my requests for breakfast, lunch and dinner, they were always very accommodating. I would highly recommend Bliss to travellers who are looking for a true escape. If you are looking to immerse yourself in the local nightlife then the location is a bit out of the way, however with a driver also at your service this isn't really a problem.

Dear 75Cynthia,
thankyou for your lovely review, I am so happy you had a great experience. As much as I'm disappointed we couldn't get a 5/5 from you I certainly understand that, if you were wanting a more high energy nightlife experience. Bliss is really the antithesis of a nightclub experience full of rest, relaxation and pampering ... though we do usually go for sunset drinks at one of the amazing local beachside bars and of course like you say we can organise a driver for anything you would like to do. Thanks again for sharing. Bliss love Zoe and the gorgeous bliss team xxx

I've just spent a week at the beautiful Bliss Sanctuary for Women in Bali. From the moment I arrived at the airport and was met by Wayan, I felt completely safe and looked after. I was looking for deep relaxation, time to myself and to experience some yoga without the pressure of resort style accommodation. What a treat this was! The beautiful hostesses met me on the first night after arriving late full of kindness and interest. They presented me with many options but like so many others, I found it extremely difficult to leave the pool and 90 minutes of blissful spa treatments every day. I did make it to yoga at the gorgeous Desa Seni a couple of times and also enjoyed the special treatment by Sami the Healer. I highly recommend Bliss Sanctuary and commend Zoe Watson on this fabulous concept for women travelling on their own. Special shout outs to Shar, Pip, Wayan and Vera, the fabulous women that make this place so special. Another massive bonus is the women you meet at the sanctuary and I feel that I've made some great friends and contacts. Do your body and soul a huge favour and go to Bliss. I hope to return some day to this amazing, wonderful and gorgeous sanctuary.

I think Bliss is the real example of "what you see (and what you read on internet) is what you get"; I read many things about Bliss before arriving there and I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised to realize that reality was even better than my expectations. The room was lovely, the food delicious, the staff so sincerely friendly, very efficient and prudent drivers, the Spa treatments so relaxing and personalized, and so my Time out, from a hectic pace in Shanghai, was a huge success and a dream during my whole week at Bliss. I am very grateful because I have felt so much pampered for one week and I felt that nothing was a problem for the hostesses in terms of organization and requests. I really hope to be back again someday in this Blissful and serene Sanctuary.

Dear Sandra B, thank you so much for your kind words. We receive comments so very often that it is better than what people thought and I think that comes down to the 'feel' of the place and the gorgeous energy fostered by the beautiful people within Bliss and the Island of the Gods. It's hard to share that in photos, se we really appreciate your words. Bliss Love Zoe and the gorgeous bliss team xxx

It was the summer of 2013 when I had the itch to go travel somewhere. I've travelled solo once before but this would be my first time going to Southeast Asia. A bit nervous to travel alone in a country I was not familiar with, I found the perfect place to stay. I googled search words for solo travellers and found Bliss Sanctuary. It sounded perfect. A place to relax, indulge, explore, and find oneself. I booked right away!

After arriving in Indonesia, I was greeted by a friendly Bliss driver who drove me to the villa. I loved staying at the Bliss villa in Canggu as it was away from the bigger city - more of a countryside feel, waking up to roosters, minutes from the beach, etc. It was great to have a driver because we could go into the city when we wanted to, visiting places like Seminyak, Ubud, etc. Our driver Ketut took us to some neat places like the coffee plantation and silver factories.

The massages daily were amazing and so was the convenience of having a hostess plan my activities. My favourite day trip was with the Bali Eco Cycle Tour. Cycling through the lush green countryside in Bali among the rice paddies and villages was so wonderful! The chefs at Bliss also whipped up delicious breakfasts, lunches, and dinners and I ate mostly all of my meals at the Villa.

I'd definitely recommend Bliss Sanctuary to any woman looking to relax, explore, rejuvenate, and treat themselves to something that is truly amazing. I hope to be back soon one day! Thanks to the Bliss staff for an amazing adventure.
