Bali Women's Revitalize Retreat
Come to where Mother Nature is at her best; lush fragrant and colourful to awaken your feminine spirit!
Waking up to the morning bird chorus in your boutique luxury villa surrounded by rice paddies, you finish your first gentle yoga class and a mindful meditation session feeling nourished, realigned and set up for your day
Take your time over your organic breakfast in the open-air restaurant surrounded by colourful plants, the air alive with the scent of the morning's "canang sari" as we talk about the day's activities
We journey to a sacred water temple for a powerful water cleansing and blessing ritual, reflect and reconnect with ourselves as we walk through the stunning greenery of the rice terraces, before enjoying a leisurely lunch at one of Ubud's cafes overlooking the amazing Tegallang rice terraces
After chatting for what feels like hours poolside over a cool drink back at our private Villas, you indulge your body in a luscious Spa treatment followed up by an amazing dinner with your new friends.
Recovering from a most awesome dinner (and an over-the-top dessert) you take a stroll through the colourful Ubud Art Market with its traditional art and locally made handcrafts soaking up the local vibe and returning back to your villa excited for what tomorrow brings!
And that’s just DAY 1 of your rejuvenating retreat!!
Are you in?
You can be yourself with us – fully and completely!
You’ll feel (and benefit from) our mad concoction of the spiritual, from intuition to inspiration, mindfulness to movement, and connectivity to creativity.
Our yoga classes are designed around the more mature (and wiser) female body with a focus on yoga therapy, mind-body connection and breathing - There are no headstands or Lululemon here!
You’re going to meet and spend time with some amazing women
Plain and simple: You are going to have FUN and lots of it…
And please – don’t worry if don’t feel like doing any of the activities, you don’t have to unless you want to.
My intention for you with this retreat is to ensure that we all have an amazing time, relax, reconnect and rejuvenate ourselves, meet new friends and experience the magic and culture of Bali within a safe and fun environment.
There will be a maximum of 8 ladies on this trip as I believe a smaller group leads to stronger connections with each other.
A typical retreat day is when you don't have to make any decisions if you don't want to. I will organise all the day-to-day planning for you (whether it’s on the itinerary or not).
All you have to do is turn up and enjoy!
What are you waiting for???

This will be the perfect opportunity to set your intention for the rest of the week.

Day 3 - Sound Healing & Shopping therapy
Morning yoga and breakfast.
Later this morning prepare to be “Wowed” with an immersive Ancient Sound Healing Session at the famous Pyramids of Chi. Our senses will be engulfed in a healing soundscape through the rhythmic frequencies produced by ancient instruments propelling us into a deep meditative state, allowing our bodies to feel, heal, relax & release.
After lunch (not included) in Ubud central, it’s time to explore amazing shops, the Ubud markets, and Monkey Forest (optional) or return to our villas to chill by your pool and get one of your relaxing spa treatments.
In the evening we’ll enjoy an awesome dining experience (included)at a local Balinese restaurant overlooking the river
Day 4 - Culture, Spa sessions & Cooking
After morning yoga and breakfast, we learn the Balinese practice of “canang sari”, or the making of traditional offerings. These offerings are easily spotted in every corner of Bali homes and doorways. Balinese offerings are a conscious expression of gratitude intended to please and honour the Island of the Gods.
We have lunch at our villas.
In the afternoon we’re all about the cuisine of Bali as we immerse ourselves in a Balinese cooking class and cook up a storm. Afterwards, we’ll feast on the assortment of food we’ve created.
Day 5 - Nature and Chill time
Morning yoga and breakfast. We experience exciting Balinese daily life as we explore villages & picturesque rice fields on an e-bike followed by a delicious lunch (included)
This afternoon it’s all about relaxation, as we head up for an afternoon at one of Ubud’s jungle clubs, set high up in the hills amongst the lush wilderness and rice paddies. Swim in the infinity pool and soak up the amazing views over a sunset cocktail and dinner (included)
Day 6 - Nature, Shopping & Spa sessions
After an early breakfast, we take a walk along the Campuhan Ridge Trail with its sweeping hilltop views (optional) and stop along the way for a coffee and views of peaceful lily ponds before ending up at Ubud Palace, Ubud Art and street markets. Shop (again) and explore to your heart's content or maybe book yourself in for an afternoon Spa package at Jaens Spa. (Optional extra)
We reconvene late afternoon for a gentle yoga session at our villas before a leisurely dinner (included) at one of the local restaurants.

Testimonials from our happy clients
I loved this trip to Rarotonga. It was my first overseas trip since lockdown finished. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting a group of women who have had very different life experiences from each other and yet finding common ground on some level regardless. I was awed by many of their stories and grateful for the support of the group. Sharon was a great host and sorted out all my techno stuff for me which was very much appreciated.
Thank you very much for this amazing experience.

“This would be one of the best courses I’ve ever done. It was full of very practical and useful tips that will make a big difference in any future travel for me.
Sharon was professional and friendly and she made sure that everyone had a chance to join in and share their stories”
Judy – Solo Travel for Women – Explore the World Fearlessly participant- April 2022
“Fantastic experience that exceeded my expectations”
From totally getting out of my comfort zone in Bali and snorkelling with Manta Rays next to the island paradise of Nusa Lembongan, to the shopping (and learning how to barter with the locals in Seminyak), everything in between was amazing.
This was my first overseas holiday in years and it was for my birthday and I wanted to have the holiday of a lifetime!
Sharon was an excellent hostess who showed me all the sights I wanted to see in my own time. I liked that we could plan our days as we wanted so there was lots of flexibility without the pressure of having every minute of the day accounted for.
Sharon involved me in the daily planning and showed me some hidden secrets about how to best organize a trip. I knew that if I ever wanted to do a solo trip I would be able to do so safely and with confidence.
Thank you for sharing your knowledge and enthusiasm with me.

Just came back from a ten-day trip to Bali with my host Sharon, who was SO easy to get on with, and had arranged excellent accommodation and itinerary, etc. It was a full-on time, as we stayed in three different locations, and split our time between Seminyak, Nusa Lembongan, and Ubud. Each place had different qualities, beautiful people, and attractions. I was outside my comfort zone at times, but survived being on the back of a Go-Jek in crazy traffic, walking along wobbly jetties, etc, and being hassled by merchandise sellers!
Seriously, I had an absolute blast, and time went too quickly!!
Bali and its people are amazing, and Sharon did a marvelous job of coordinating everything, and showing me around

Absolutely AMAZING holiday and travel experience with Sharon on our trip to Vanuatu!
It was a beautiful trip, I loved the freedom to decide each night what we were going to do the next day.
There were a few days here and there that we had full-day adventures planned in advance while having downtime days in between to relax and explore the area where we were staying, this made the experience relatively stress-free and it didn’t feel too packed or overloaded with too much to do.
Travelling with Sharon was super fun and informative too, I learned a lot of valuable travel hacks from her and would fully recommend her services as a travel advisor and travel companion.
May we travel somewhere exciting and exotic again soon!
