Our Retreats

We will introduce you to the Balinese culture we love …through temple visits, water blessings, and rice paddy walks through local villages. While also exposing you to Bali’s international world of chic villas, fabulous restaurants, stylish beach resorts, and architectural marvels. We promise to create an unparalleled adventure for your senses.

We offer our complete 6 day / 7 night design retreat with the full itinerary or for those on a tighter time frame we offer our 4 day / 3 night design retreat with a select itinerary. We aim to spoil you with rest, relaxation, epic food and great company… while combining all the diverse elements of design, craftsmanship, art and architecture that this Island of the Gods has to offer.

On our week-long retreats, the first 3 days will be spent in Canggu. Our last retreat took place at The Ulaman Eco Resort, winner of Trip Advisors Best Hotels in the World 2021. Not far from the beach, this unique oasis offers a glimpse into the magical world of bamboo and sustainable architecture. All of our future retreats will either take place at Ulaman or a private villa in the area that allows us to explore the best of Canggu, Seminyak and Kerobokan. The second half of our week-long retreat will be spent in Ubud at a privately owned fabulous villa set amongst the lush jungle but still close to Ubud’s creative soul. From here we will explore the diverse villages of Tegalagang, Mas and explore central Ubud.

Why a women only retreat?

The idea to gather a group of women from different cultures and ages, felt like it made perfect sense. Who doesn’t love the camaraderie and ease of a group of like-minded women together, laughing at female jokes, comfortable hanging out in a robe with no makeup on, sharing stories as we eat and shop together, making friends you would have normally never had the chance to meet. Bali, typically known as “Mother Bali”, embraces the feminine energy like no other place. Our goal is to create adventures that will not only spark your personal creativity, yet make life long friendships and memories we will all cherish forever.
