Bliss Sanctuary Retreat for Women Bali

Morning: With rejuvenating sleep a high priority at this property near Seminyak, there’s no hurry to get out of bed. However, you won’t want to forego the morning tour to Ubud, where lush bushland, traditional rice paddies and a magnificent, dormant volcano set the scene. The best way to take in the sights is via one of the sanctuary’s free pushbikes, like those featured in the hit flick Eat, Pray, Love. On your journey, you might even come across a sacred cow or two. Afterwards, enjoy a well-earned buffet breakfast in this idyllic setting.

Afternoon: Upon returning to the sanctuary, indulge in a treatment with Sami, the resident Balinese healer. Sami will hone in on your tension-carrying zones and reduce stress in a holistic way. You’ll be ready for a snack and an afternoon nap before awaking to the stunning Balinese sunset. Then, make time for an invigorating yoga workout by the water, before heading into town for the evening.

Evening: Tonight you’ll venture outside the resort for an evening of culinary indulgence at La Luciola, an Italian beachside restaurant in nearby Seminyak. Dine at sunset and revel in the fusion of traditional Mediterranean delicacies and contemporary seafood creations, like the scallop risotto or the rich tuna ahi, before retiring to the resort for an early night. Alternatively, stroll along the beach and stop in for an oceanfront cocktail at new hotspot Potato Head.

Prices start from $3150 for a five-day Eat, Pray, Love package. For more information, visit
