Visit for more info

The welcoming local people, the rich culture, the fresh food, the lush jungle landscape and flawless beaches, the beautiful smells of incense, flowers and sacred offerings… this place gives me the heaven on Earth feels! Being blessed with the opportunity to explore this island on my first solo trip in 2014, every year since I’ve made my way back, sharing the “Island of the Gods” with women from around the world. Each time, I envision myself returning again soon. Its energy calls me, pulls me in, and expands my heart and soul with each journey. I am so proud and excited to honor my spirit led vision to create a truly rich experience for you, different than any before! This offering and special invitation is for an intimate group of women who feel called to this sacred land to experience what I call “THE FIVE ELEMENTS” of a truly idyllic vacation!

Sisterhood + Local Culture + Regional Cuisine + Relaxation + Fun

As with the five elements in nature, this retreat has been thoughtfully orchestrated with each element creating the other and working together to support a beautifully balanced vacation experience. Aside from Bali being one of the most high vibration, spiritually magnetic, lush, naturally and culturally beautiful places on earth, my love of the culture, food and spas inspired me to create a retreat where you can deeply nourish yourself, indulge, and have fun with kindred spirits.

what will we do?

We’ll see amazing sights, explore majestic temples, splash around in the crystal clear sea, sip cocktails on white sandy beaches with stunning sunsets, eat fresh and organic regional cuisine, get massages and more! Aside from all that I have planned with this mainly all-inclusive journey, you will have some time on your own to explore the island. Spend a half-day at the spa for a relaxing Ayurvedic body treatment and fragrant flower blossom bath, wander through rice fields, shop the colorful markets, splash around in a waterfall, take a yoga class, visit the Monkey Forest, check out the night-life… after all, this is YOUR time to feed your mind, body and soul, as you wish.

what’s included?

The Five Elements Retreat will include:

~ Amazing villa accommodations in Ubud and hotel accommodations in Seminyak

The first 3 days of our journey will take place in the heart of terraced rice fields located in the creative mecca of Ubud – the most desirable location in Bali. Think swaying palm trees, therapeutic breeze, beautifully landscaped rice terraces and wind chimes singing away. Our villa has 8 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, a private spa room with a sauna and hot tub, 2 full kitchens, an open air dining room, full staff and a beautiful pool perched at the edge of the rice fields with decks and views to soothe the body and mind. Just a short stroll away, you will find a large variety of shopping markets, world class restaurants, spas and yoga studios galore. The last 2 days of our journey will take place in Seminyak, Bali’s most stylish and upscale beach resort area. Here, you can find some of Bali’s top dining spots where international chefs cook up world-class cuisine and when the sun sets, the nightlife becomes upbeat and vibrant. Our hotel resort boasts modern comfort in Balinese-inspired rooms and lush surroundings, just a short walk from the beach.

~ An airport shuttle and ground transportation to and from all group excursions

The drivers that I have arranged are safe, extremely kind and accommodating. You will be warmly greeted at the airport and shuttled in an air-conditioned vehicle with other retreat guests.

~ Nourishing and indulgent breakfasts, lunches and dinners (with vegan, vegetarian and meat options)

All meals will be prepared by our outstanding villa chefs as well as local, personally chosen restaurants where I know the food is amazing! I like food. A LOT! I like to smell it, eat it, take pictures of it… in fact, it’s one of my favorite things about visiting new places around the world – and Bali happens to be one of my top choice regions for food. Delicious is an understatement and I’ve yet to try anything that I have disliked. You can taste the freshness, nothing is processed, the flavor is amazing, and you’ll go home wishing you had a personal Balinese chef of your own.

~ Excursions & Classes

I have a beautifully balanced selection of excursions and classes for you including:

A visit to a one of the oldest temples in Bali (which is actually a series of 15 temples) set in a beautiful deep river valley next to towering cliffs, where you can spend time exploring.

A visit to the Tirta Empul Holy Water Spring where you will take part in a spiritual cleanse at one of the largest water temples in Indonesia. The water in the pools is believed to have magical powers and local Balinese as well as tourists come here to purify themselves under the 30 spouts of natural, spring fed water.

A visit to one of the most beautiful rice terraces in Bali for a hike, scenic outlook, and photo shoot…because the photo opportunities are amazing here! This ancient valley has a timeless quality and is an unforgettable sight to see.

A cultural experience such as a flower offering class to learn more about the ‘banten’ you’ll see all over the island, which is a therapeutic ritual (meditation in motion) that will encourage your artistic side and creativity while learning more about Bali’s rich culture – or – a private Balinese interactive cooking class where we will pick out fresh and local ingredients and unique spices from the “Island of the Gods” and cook and enjoy our own meal, led by a Balinese chef.

A visit to one of my favorite local spas for a relaxing traditional Balinese spa experience. If this sounds like bliss… it is! Given that Bali is an epicenter for all things spiritual, spa-ing here is a quasi-religious experience; and this top of the line spa is a high altar to indulgence. Set in lush greenery, this healing sanctuary ooses serenity and the rituals that take place inside will surely leave you wanting more.

A sisterhood circle empowerment session to awaken and guide you into living your divine plan. Whether you know it or not, you are a divine being with a purpose to be fulfilled in this lifetime. Discovering your divine plan is a process, like peeling back the layers of an onion. No one can reveal this to you… rather, it is a process of self discovery. And to know yourself, you must go within. This interactive session will assist you in fully embracing the vision that you have for your life, walking the path of your divine purpose.

~Free Time

Spent however you wish! It’s important for me to create an experience that’s perfect for YOU. You may wish to spend your free time reflecting or relaxing… journaling or swimming… at a spa or in town shopping… exploring adventurous sights… feeding monkeys in the forest… you decide. I’ve made sure to offer you a free day to do whatever you feel and can also assist in making personal excursion arrangements for you.
