Interested in planned retreats? Whether you’re looking to learn how to teach Kundalini Yoga, or go deeper (and more creative) with a fascinating soul portraits retreat – Naya Ubud has a calendar of retreats all planned out for you.

Even more impressive, the yoga shala where yoga classes, live music performance, meditation and dancing take place, is a beautiful Balinese pavilion which overlooks a pretty incredible view.

You’ll be able to get your yoga on, to the view of a meandering river and a bamboo grove, making the retreat experience truly memorable. “Flicking candles, fireflies, birds, geckos, the sound of the river below, and the distant chants of a Balinese priest will make the space feel like something out of a dream.”

And that’s not all. There’s also the amazing pool where you may cool off, and one interesting thing to note, is that the pool uses an Ozone cleansing system. This means smoother, and healthier water with 90% less chlorine – bringing you as close to nature while remaining as hygienic as possible.

Naya Ubud takes the cake with everything available including the Naya Spa, a hair studio (everything from scalp massage to organic hair wash and even a stylish trim), and one of our favourites – the Steam Grotto.

Imagine bathing in a steam room surrounding by volcanic rocks, where the waters are infused with essential oils to enhance relaxation. Doesn’t it sound just like a dream?

19. Dolphin excursions, snorkeling and diving for the Yogi – Nibbana Resort & Spa

The northern coast of Bali is famed for its as-of-yet unspoiled beaches, great snorkeling spots and dolphins.

Located in Singaraja, Nibbana Resort & Spa plays all of this to its full advantage. The Resort offers retreats which feature both yoga classes and diving excursions.

If you’re lucky enough, you just might catch a glimpse of dolphins on your diving excusion!

As Singaraja is a world away from the heavy traffic of South Bali, guests can also explore the beautiful surroundings of the resort by bike. Nibbana has its own spa and also offers Balinese cooking classes for guests.

Still, the biggest selling point might just be that stunning pool overlooking the ocean. The views from the pool are magical – the kind you can only find in Bali.

A 3-night retreat at Nibbana includes daily morning yoga classes as well as a healthy daily breakfast to start your day right, and a diving trip to Menjangan Island.

Guests also get to join a Balinese cooking class where lunch is of course included. After that, you may also cycle around the resort and enjoy a one-hour long traditional Balinese massage as part of the retreat package.
