“Total Bliss”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

I've never travelled by myself before so was looking for a safe and loving environment to spend some much needed relaxation time. Bliss totally met my expectations. The whole villa is very well thought out with everything you could possibly need provided for you. Shar and the team arranged for me to visit some beautiful places and I'd highly recommend a trip to Tanah Lot to watch the sunset. Bliss is a brilliant place to reflect and relax with a great group of people and with an endless supply of Toblerone on tap!

I spent a week at Bliss in July after being referred by a friend that had stayed their only a few weeks before. Location, Accommodation, Staff and Food were all AMAZING! Nothing was a problem for Shar the most beautiful, kind and caring host you could ask for. She was always going over and above to ensure my stay was one to remember and it was. The gorgeous staff were also so kind and caring, they cooked amazing meals and went out of their way to make sure you were happy with the menu. If you are looking for some time to recharge your batteries, unwind, chill and being indulged then do yourself a favour and head to BLISS! Oh, and the 1.5 hours of treatments a day are amazing! Thank you Shar

Room Tip: All rooms are the same size and quality. Except a couple of twin beds

This was true bliss and exactly what I needed. Loved all the thought that has gone into creating a perfect environment for females travelling solo. Never needed to negotiate for a taxi, Bliss has their own private drivers for guests plus you are given a mobile phone with staff numbers to call anyone when needed. Lots of books, mags and DVDs to choose from. Breakfast and lunch freshly cooked when you order. Dinner is Balinese buffet plus dessert. Be as active or chilled as you chose. I think I might be making this a compulsory week out to myself every year.

Only way for a single woman to travel in Bali. My week at Bliss was the most relaxing and rejuvenating experience. Everything is looked after for you and I didn't realise exactly how easy everything was until I spent my last 3 days at a resort in Nusa Dua. Transfers to and from Bliss are included , even to and from other hotels. Having 3 delicious meals cooked to order when you want them was great. The "compulsory" 90min treatments were tough to take! Char and Pip were fantastic hostesses and nothing was too much trouble and they accommodated our groups changes of mind with no complaint. You have the services of a driver when you need - I did 2 day trips to seminyak and ubud. One excellent inclusion is a mobile phone for each room so that you can contact the hostesses or the drivers as required. The beach was only a 5 minute walk away and there was the ability to take classes as the nearby Desa Sani which is a beautiful setting.
The rooms are massive including 2 queen beds, TV, DVD player and large outdoor bathroom with bath and shower.
There are 2 villa complexes with a total of 5 rooms so very intimate which is fantastic
There are a couple of different packages - I select the basic package and added on a few session with tarot reader, and healers,. This was great as it allowed me a couple of days to just completely unwind. The only regret is I didn't stay longer.

Dear leeanne1810, thank you for sharing your experience going from Bliss to a Hotel environment and the contrast. Especially when traveling on your own it is quite amazing how all the little things add up to really help you relax and unwind without a care in the world and no bog decisions to make. I'm glad to see you were so relaxed you thought we had 5 rooms instead of 6 hahaha ... we get that a lot at Bliss which is a wonderful thing. Total Relaxation.

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:)

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
