Sunday Mail: The Time of our Lives at Bliss Bali Sanctuary

November 2013

As the founder of a Balinese sanctuary which allows women to temporarily escape their hectic lives, Zoë Watson is an expert in helping others unwind.

From yoga classes to daily massages and individual drivers for each guest, the Bliss Retreat Bali Sanctuary experience set up by the 39 year old Adelaidean nearly three years ago is based on the importance of setting aside time for ourselves.

But ask Watson, who splits her time between the popular Indonesian holiday island and Henley Beach, what she does in her own “me time” and she lets out a wry laugh.

“They often say we teach the things we need to do the most,” she laughs.

Her busy work life, which includes establishing a medical tourism business in Greece, means Watson rarely gets to put herself first.

“It’s definitely a rarity. I try to come back to Adelaide over summer and spend a lot of time going for walks along the beach and I also enjoy meditating,” she says.


Bliss Sanctuary For Women, empowering women to travel solo with a tailored Bali retreat holiday just for you.

Follow your bliss your way with an experience completely tailored to you. More than a retreat for women, it’s your personal time out for rejuvenation and wellness. This Bali holiday is free of group schedules so you can choose to do as much or as little as you like. From unlimited sightseeing, unlimited massages, unlimited yoga, meditation, healers, plentiful and yummy food, shopping, personal drivers to take you anywhere you would like to go…  it’s all up to you.

Check out our Bali Packages and remember they are all completely flexible so you can change anything you would like once here.

We would love to meet you!
