One Year On, Zoë Watson Continues To Find Her Bliss

Australian entrepreneur  Zoë Watson’s Bali-based business  –  Bliss Sanctuary for Women  –  has struck a chord with women from all corners of the globe, earning the prestigious Trip Advisor 2012 Certificate of Excellence award after its first year of operation.

Launched in May 2011,  Bliss Sanctuary for Women  is a world-first  travel experience  catering specifically for women looking to recharge their batteries  in  a tailor-made  environment  –  staying in  a hand-picked boutique villa, exploring local sights at leisure, and indulging in sumptuous food and personal pampering.

Zoë  Watson; founder of  Bliss Sanctuary for Women  said she was absolutely thrilled about receiving the 2012 Certificate of Excellence award.

“To secure a five  rating on such a reputable site as Trip Advisor is a fantastic achievement for myself and the sanctuary, and something I am very proud of,” says Zoë.

“I’m overjoyed with how well the Bliss experience is being received  by women from all around the world, and all walks of life.”

“Knowing that I am helping women find that space in their lives where they can indulge  themselves guilt-free and return to their lives feeling refreshed, enlightened, and energised, is such a rewarding feeling.”

Bliss Sanctuary for Women earned this award due to travelers consistently commending the sanctuary with the highest praise on Trip Advisor; resulting in a five rating.

Located  primarily around Seminyak and only minutes from the beach,  Bliss Sanctuary for Women’s clientele is diverse and includes professionals, mothers, and women juggling the stresses of both roles.

“A few years ago I took some time out in Bali  –  I was burnt out with work, needed a break, and simply wanted to enjoy a slower place and to recharge the batteries. It was at this moment that I first became inspired to develop a womens’ only sanctuary,” says Zoë.

“I had  an amazing experience in this beautiful country, but it would have been even better if I’d had someone on the ground that could relate to where my head was at and create a hassle-free stay that met all my needs. Speaking to other women there and on my return, I discovered I wasn’t the only one seeking this type of experience.”

As a result, Bliss Sanctuary for Women was developed based on Zoë’s personal experiences and research, with one rule  existing  to  ensure a comforting, relaxing, and safe environment:  no couples, no men, no children and only a handful of women at any given time!

Included in the Bliss Sanctuary for Women stay are personal drivers who will collect you from the airport and are available to take you on your journey, whether that be shopping, yoga, meditation,  or some of the more unusual and undiscovered sites of Bali. Plus all meals are supplied with an amazing selection of Balinese traditional dishes, along with an indulgent daily 90 minute massage.

Prices for a one week stay at Bliss  Sanctuary For Women start at $1,750, plus taxes, and includes daily massages, spa treatments, breakfast, lunch and dinner,  plus airport transfers. All rooms have their own bathroom and Bali Bliss toiletries.
