The earth here blossoms with indigenous fruits, organic vegetables, flowers and herbs, many of which are also used in our spa treatments for medicinal healing as well as for our freshly prepared spa cuisine. Individual spa rooms have their own private water garden or views over the jungle valley. An extensive spa menu will be available for you to choose from during your stay with plenty of time for massages, pedicures, reflexology, ayurvedic treatments, facials and body treatments. One hour heavenly Balinese massage is included. For additional treatments check the spa menu.
We will be creating the opportunity for you to have some real fun and adventure on this retreat! Whether it is through soaking up the sun; immersing yourself beneath a waterfall; giggling at our new salsa dance moves; sipping cocktails by the pool; shopping for fabulous finds in Ubud; melting into heavenly spa treatments; exploring yourself through workshops or experimenting with yoga classes. During our time together we will be reconnecting with the playfulness and fun you have within!

This retreat is the ultimate antidote for the pressure and tension of daily life. Lisa offers expert spiritual guidance. All of this takes place in the tranquil and luxurious setting of Bagus Jati, Ubud.
P and M. Jacobson, Sydney
Lisa taught me that I am capable of making a mind/body connection. The resort and its staff gave me the ability to let go and be cared for. The standard of service was extremely high and not intrusive. My fellow participants all came with an open heart and contributed willingly of themselves. I take away a happy memory of each and everyone one of them. I am confident that my everyday life will be enriched by my many experiences at Bagus Jati.
L. McIntosh, Central Coast
This was by far the BEST travel experience I have ever had. An awesome location teamed with lovely and caring facilitators. Bagus Jati was absolutely stunning and the staff so accommodating. What a wonderful treat, an entire week to reflect, honour and connect with like-minded people in a setting that was truly Paradise ... The evening in Ubud salsa dancing and dining on tapas was a personal highlight! I thank you with all my heart for this truly magical experience. The location, treatments, room/villa, pool area, scenic view, facilitators. The highlight was the waterfall experience and salsa dancing.
I absolutely loved this retreat! Conducted in the natural beauty of a mountainous rainforest in Ubud, this unforgettable experience for me was healing, uplifting, fun and life changing. I am so very grateful. I loved the workshops, the fun, the accommodation, the food, the treatments and the connection with so many beautiful people.
This retreat exceeded all of my expectations! The location of the retreat in Bali was amazing. I am so glad I went! Everything about the retreat was spectacular! The workshops were great & well thought out. There was a good balance between workshops, classes, organised outings & free time.
