À PROPOS

BALI

A small island nestled in the heart of Indonesia, Bali offers a resplendent nature, a rich culture and breathtaking landscapes: Volcano, mountains, sea, tropical forest, waterfalls and cultural monuments.

Let's not forget delicious cuisine, trendy or local cafes and restaurants, unlimited leisure activities that make Bali an island where you never get bored and where there is something for everyone!

Close to the equator, it enjoys a warm and pleasant climate all year round. It is characterized by a dry season and a rainy season.

WE

How was Bird of Paradise Retreats born? We are Jessica and Marie-Caroline (you will find our presentation below). Missing travel and leisure in the midst of Covid, we were discussing one day our previous stays in Bali. It is an island that we both loved for the same reasons and where we wanted to return. One thing leading to another, the idea of organizing something there was born. But not right away... the situation in the world must first stabilize. We therefore had time to imagine our ideal retreat, the one that makes us dream and where we would like to take our students and anyone passionate about our activities (Pole and/or Yoga).

We invite you into our universe!

OUR PROJECT

We envision this retreat rich in exchanges and discoveries, a group that meets, shares a week together and discovers a country, a culture, new culinary flavors and sumptuous landscapes, all around a passion for the Pole and/or Yoga. Dynamic days containing many activities but also time for yourself, to decompress and let go of your daily life.

During your stay with us, you can enjoy:

Morning Yoga classes, for a gentle awakening in movement or in the evening for a calming of body and mind. People following the "Only Yoga" retreat will benefit from Yoga Workshops focusing on different themes, at the end of the morning. People following the Pole & Yoga retreat will benefit from Pole Workshops with International Guests in our Pole Studio.

Two meals a day are included during the week. Breakfast every day then a meal, either at noon or in the evening depending on the program for the week (see the schedule). This will leave you the choice of eating at the villa (chef on site) or exploring the surroundings during your free time. (In Bali, it is possible to eat a complete and delicious meal for only a few $$, so this will only increase your budget by a few $$ for the week).

Discover wonderful landscapes and Balinese culture through our various excursions. Thus, we will dedicate a whole day to discover the magic of Ubud, its cultural center and will enjoy the visit of a temple, a waterfall, the city center and much more.

We will pick you up from the airport if you arrive on the first day of the retreat. All transport to the different activities will be organized by us, throughout the week, so that you don't have to worry about it.

We will eat in some of the most beautiful restaurants in Bali, take you to one of the famous Beach Clubs so that you can relax to the rhythm of background music and also admire the view. Have we already mentioned Bali sunsets? they are breathtaking and we will have the pleasure of being able to enjoy them!

A sumptuous villa, where you can enjoy the serene setting and unlimited massages directly at the Villa! (one massage per person included in the package)

Finally, to immortalize our stay, we will be followed by a videographer and will organize a photo shoot to capture your most beautiful poses in this enchanting setting.

What more? Do you have cravings? Suggestions? Do not hesitate to let us know! We want to organize the retreat of your dreams and will do everything we can to make your stay unforgettable!

Will this retreat take place every year thereafter? No, this retreat is planned to be unforgettable and unique!

A once-in-a-lifetime experience! On the other hand, we would then like to take you to other destinations if you wish to continue to follow us!

YOGA & POLE SCHEDULE

Get an idea of our planning for the retreat. This schedule could be subject to modifications.

LA VILLA

THE ACCOMMODATION: THE BIRD OF PARADISE VILLA

Our Javanese-style Villa is actually made up of two interconnected Villas which includes two swimming pools, two buildings each with 4 bedrooms (2 on the ground floor and two upstairs) and an individual bungalow (one suite). A dining room/living room in the open air but covered, a movement area also covered but outdoors (where the Yoga classes will take place), a large garden, a view of the rice fields. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and air conditioning.

Located a few minutes walk from the Center but in a quiet location, the villa seduced us with its style, the fact that it offers a large and private space. Daily Room Service, Chef, Masseuses, Driver, all this staff will be there to make our stay unforgettable.
