Bali is renowned for its enchanting mixture of refined artistic culture and unique spiritual heritage, sacred temples with colourful daily ceremonies and friendly locals.
Creative expression may come in many forms on this wonderful women’s retreat, through meditation, or walking in the rice paddies, through making your own signature piece of silver jewellery or through an art therapy process. There are so many opportunities during this trip to connect with the sacred creativity within yourself though the magic of Bali. This is the ultimate girls getaway, a week of fun, food, massages, workshops, play, dancing, yoga, laughter and much more ….
There are no pre-requisites for this retreat. No artistic ability required. This is for anyone who wants to experience the art and culture of Bali in a fun and supportive way, whilst in the company of like minded women. Perfect for solo adventurers, but also great for friends and family members. We hope you can join us!

Ubud is culture, yes. It’s also home to good restaurants, cafes and streets of shops, many selling goods from the region’s artisans. The local village of Penestanan where we are staying in is home to “The Young Artists of Bali”.
Ubud’s popularity continues to grow, adding on the hoopla created by the bestselling Eat, Pray, Love.
Our Villa is located in the compound of the Bali residence of Indonesia’s famous art and craft guru Warwick Purser. Spread over a three-storey building, seven en-suite bedrooms with six double and one twin beds will accommodate us.
The Villa has many little sheltered break out areas over three levels so you can always find a quiet space to read a book or catch up and chat with a friend over coffee.
At the ground floor we will prepare your breakfast in an open-style kitchen and you will be enjoying it facing a tropical garden and a long lap pool. You will find two living rooms – one opened, one closed – and one bedroom. You can even relax at the sauna, which is quite exceptional in Bali.
The first floor gathers three bedrooms – two double and one twin – three salons and a opened terrace. The top floor bedroom – called “The Honeymoon suite” – features a pavilion and open terrace. You will enjoy massages in a quiet atmosphere, close to heaven… On the other side of the pool a small villa houses the additional two bedrooms and small kitchen and living space.
There are no televisions in the rooms, which leaves time for reading, relaxing, swimming, spa treatments and taking afternoon naps. Please note that at our villa we have six white doves and lots of fish. If you have allergies to these animals please let us know, you do not need to interact with them but we think its important you know they will be around from time to time to make you smile and keep you entertained.
We are also located in a local village within walking distance to Ubud town, however nature is prevalent so it is important to know that village life and nature may also contribute to your experience in the form of religious ceremonies, small geckos, insects and crowing roosters. Apart from this you can expect to have a peaceful time.
