Former Miss Universe Australia Finds Her Ultimate Bliss

Laura Csortan, Australian model and TV presenter, recently flew to Bali to stay at Bliss Sanctuary for Women – a boutique villa accommodation that presents a relaxing holiday destination exclusively for women who wish to unwind without children, men, couples, and stresses from work and everyday life.

“Bliss Sanctuary for Women truly is a ‘women’s sanctuary’ in every sense of the word. Never before have I felt more relaxed, comfortable, and secure. As women, we don’t give ourselves the downtime we need and deserve, and it is certainly hard to find a place to do that, but Bliss Sanctuary for Women offers the perfect environment,” says Laura.

Since returning home from Bali Laura has been nonstop with trips to Los Angeles and New York for G’day USA and has hit the ground running with TV and radio commitments. Laura said the trip was highly beneficial and came just at the right time.

“I can honestly say I have never felt more relaxed and refreshed. I came home full of fresh ideas and a renewed positive outlook,” says Laura.

Located near Seminyak, Bliss Sanctuary for Women offers a beautiful Balinese experience with modern comforts. Within a spacious villa, a serene pool, spa treatments, massages, a beautiful Balinese garden, yoga for all levels, meditation spaces, and personal drivers for shopping trips and airport transfers, Bliss Sanctuary for Women is a haven for all women’s needs.

“With massages on hand – in fact one a day is mandatory – beautiful homemade food, lovely company, and stunning surroundings, the only thing to do is relax and unwind,” says Csortan.

Fresh and authentic Balinese food is available, along with local cooking classes for guests looking to take a piece of Bali home with them.

“I loved every minute of my stay at Bliss Sanctuary for Women. The massages, food, company, and villa were second to none, and I have promised myself I will go back at least once a year, every year, to hit the refresh button,” says Csortan.

The Bliss Sanctuary for Women experience is catered to women who are over-worked or burnt out; looking to travel on their own, without feeling alone, or holiday with close friends in a safe, authentic, and therapeutic location.

Bliss Sanctuary for Women opened in 2011 after founder, Zoë Watson, was feeling large amounts of anxiety and stress, seeking a place to relax and revitalise, but couldn’t find anything that catered to all her needs. Zoë believes that the sanctuary gives women travelling alone or with a friend the opportunity to experience Bali without having to worry about common travel stresses such as where to stay, dine, lounge, and what to do.

“Bliss Sanctuary for Women is not a retreat but a sanctuary where an Australian on-site hostess organises every last detail so guests can totally relax and clear their mind by creating their own bliss experience,” says Zoë.
