Award-winning Bliss Sanctuary for Women is celebrating the opening of its third women’s retreat on the island of Bali. The location of the Bliss sanctuary in Ubud has been handpicked by Bliss Founder, Zoë Watson, and the Bliss team for its unique position in the rainforest providing a wellness retreat full of peace and spirituality.

The Bliss philosophy and spirit shines through at the new Ubud retreat offering guests Bliss on their terms; whether that’s an immersion into Balinese culture, indulgent spa treatments, or some time to relax with the specialist yoga partners. With only a handful of women staying at any one time, the sanctuary is an exclusive relaxation retreat that ensures each guest has her wishes met whilst she undergoes her personal journey to relaxation and bliss.

Unlike the other two coastal Bali retreats, Ubud is in the heart of a beautiful tropical forest overlooking the picturesque Petanu river in an area with famous spiritual cleansing qualities as Zoë explains:

“Choosing Ubud as the location for our newest wellness retreat adds further diversity to the Bliss Sanctuary for Women locations. For the first time we’re offering the authentic rainforest experience of Bali, inland and away from the ocean. Ubud is a sought-after location for solo holidays for travellers all over the world and will allow our guests to achieve maximum relaxation in a stunning, secluded location.”

Set to open in April 2019, the Bliss Sanctuary has personal touches added by Zoë to create an immersion into paradise with luxurious outdoor living seamlessly moving indoors providing guests with the ultimate in blissful tranquillity.

Glistening pools are surrounded by lush, tropical gardens creating an idyllic paradise for guests to enjoy on the canopied massage beds or in the dreamy woven pods. Inside the brand-new stunning villas, exquisite interiors offer modern and open-plan living areas, luxurious open-air stone baths and blissful four-poster beds.

With the temperature of Ubud being slightly lower than the other sanctuary locations, women can have the best of both worlds by enjoying sunshine in the day and relaxing by the communal firepit in the evening when temperatures fall, connecting with other female travellers on an unforgettable journey.

While inside the retreat, the Bliss team are always on hand to provide the ultimate all-inclusive experience, treating the guests to unlimited yoga, unlimited spa treatments and poolside massages. The Bliss treatment continues outside of the retreat, as all guests are offered a private chauffer service to enjoy the countless sightseeing opportunities on the island including temple visits, mineral springs, healing sessions and much more.

The first Bliss Sanctuary for Women retreats proved a hit with women all around the world giving them more five-star reviews on TripAdvisor than any other Bali retreats. With glowing reviews and women describing it as a ‘solo travellers dream’, it’s no surprise that the Ubud sanctuary has a waiting list of people already.

Bliss Sanctuary for Women is the perfect holiday for women who want to travel unaccompanied or with friends to a sanctum of relaxation with no couples or kids without feeling isolated or alone. With a 25% off UK introductory offer, prices for a one week stay start from £1725 and include daily massages, treatments, all meals and Bali airport transfers.
