"I had a fantastic, enlightening time on the YUSUTRA Wellness retreat. As well as experiencing the energising powers of yoga for the first time, and benefitting from wonderful treatments, the food and beautiful setting was rejuvenating in itself. I met some lovely people, and came home feeling super-charged and ready to pick up the reigns of my busy life again" KB

For those that know us, Bali is no foreign land, it's the Mother land. Every year she calls us, and we always answer. Except this time, you're also invited. Our time in Bali will be split between three locations so you can experience the best of what this gorgeous island has to offer! We will start with Bali's most famous Yoga town Ubud. We'll be hosted in spacious and stylish traditional Balinese cottages -a tranquil and secluded retreat just 15 minutes walk from the village centre of Ubud and the world famous Yoga Barn, the location offers lovely rural views surrounded by lush, green, fertile rice paddies. Mid-way through our stay we'll gravitate East to the Gili Islands! If like me you love chill island vibes, snorkling with turtles and stunning beach sunsets swinging inches above water enjoying the salty aromatic breeze you'll love Gili T. The final destination is to the world renowned and exclusive town of Seminyak for that little bit of luxury, and relaxation, nothing can beat Seminyak voted top 10 in the world for its dramatic sunsets. Pure Bliss, shoreline luxury, feet in the sand overlooking the beautiful turquise waters of the Indian Ocean the perfect place for sunset-watching in Bali.

You could say this is the ethos of Yusutra and that is conservation and community go hand-in-hand and are very close to our hearts, that’s why on all our Wellness Voyages we select and partner with small luxury properties in fabulous remote locations that are eco-conscious and have close supportive relationships with nearby communities. This takes the form of supporting local schools, children’s homes or health clinics. Equally important, the properties recruits and promote people from the area, share tourism revenue with local communities and buy as much as possible from local businesses and dear friend you are now a part of this beautiful exchange of hearts and for this we are ever so grateful.
