A week-long yoga retreat in Bali, where we combine daily yoga with attention, time and space for you to fully immerse yourself in vacation mode.
It’s time to get away from all the daily routines that have taken over, and finally start creating space to take care of yourself properly. You might discover a lot of new things, both internally and externally, the moment you start listening more to the sounds that resonate within you.
Take advantage of all this free time in a new environment to have a ‘beginners’ mind – approaching everything with openness, eagerness and a lack of preconceptions – just as a beginner would look at the world around them.
We are looking forward to welcoming you at one of the yoga retreat weeks in Bali at Alila Manggis.
Book now while we still have space available and start looking forward to that well-deserved me-time.
See you at The Sounds of Harmony Yoga Retreat in Bali!

The seas here are as calm as a lagoon when you visit just before dawn. Rent our Jukung a traditional wooden boat, and cast off from the beach out on to the water to witness one of the most beautiful sunrises across the whole island. Marvel the view from the ocean of majestic Mount Agung being bathed in the first light of day as you pass by the three small Gili islands off the coast of Candidasa.

At the end of the journey we will savor fresh young coconut and fresh grilled fish for lunch at a white sandy beach.
Enjoy the thrill of the catch! Jump aboard our traditional Jukung and head out to the deep water fishing area around the Nusa Penida Strait, a playground for angling small tuna fish, red snappers, jackfish and many other deep water creatures. If you prefer bottom fishing, Snappers, blue coral fish and scribbled filefish are teeming under the sea. You can also bring along your own snorkeling gear to enjoy some deep sea swimming.

The Balinese Hindus use this holy water not only to purify the body, but also for the purification of valuable things such as buildings, vehicles and other equipment.
An unforgettable spiritual trek to the holy hill called Lempuyang. Start your trek at Jumenang from where you can see Mount Agung and Lombok island.
