I booked Kumara to see, feel and experience Bali for my first visit. Along with also hoping to re-find my vigour to towards life & passion for exercise, that I once had. We all lead busy lives and often our health takes a back step along with self-rewarding ourselves I do not mean with materialistic way.
I was pleasantly surprised with Kumara it went beyond all of my expectations. The whole environment was one of peace and tranquillity that was not forced or artificial. They yoga was exceptional in a setting like no other that I have experienced. Thank so much Iyan and your fabulous assistant Wayan. Thanking Claude as well, for such a wonderful cultural introduction that you gave us all, I now feel that I understand Bali spiritual side. Thanks you as well to all of the staff from the cleaners, laundry, to the cooks, drivers and reception staff who were all so professional in every way and able to assist instantly whenever you required anything at all. Not only that they remembered every ones name. The rooms were magical rather like being in the setting of Shakespeare’s Mid Summers Night Dream with incredible out looks overlooking the most wonderful scenery. The food and menu was like no other that I have experienced before with mouth-watering tranquilising taste sensation’s exploding with every bite taken. The complementary massages were not only 100% professional and the best I have ever experienced but they also took me far beyond the universe that I normally reside in with a close of an eye I was soon drifting far away..
I can highly recommend that if you want to share a week with some like-minded fascinating people from all walks of like & doing yoga in the most wonderful setting, along with other activities, that Kumara includes such as bike riding walking through rice paddies. You will have one memorable experience and you will want to return. I am now 100% so relaxed and can not stop smiling when ever I recall the retreat. I will be back..
