Every womans dream, well all the women I know anyway......pampering of the senses.
Its difficult to write and put in words just how deeply I feel about this journey. I have been to Bali many times, its spiritual nature and beautiful people always brings me back like a magnet. But this retreat is more than a retreat.. its a heavenly journey of the senses.
Firstly the goddess team, each and every one of them works to make your week the most wonderful and perfect experience. Mel, Wid, Yuni, Ayu, Joyce, Sharni, the spa ladies, the cooking team, ladies who looked after our room so beautifully and the drivers. You work so well together and we can let go and put ourselves in your care knowing all is well. I didn't even have to remember what time my next massage was or what I was doing next because there was always somewhere there to guide me.
This team of goddesses are genuine, passionate and an inspiration to us. They speak to each of us separately from the heart and are always available to assist.
Its a wonderful feeling to let go of time and organising, this is truly an amazing nurturing gift to women, who are always, in our daily life planning, preparing and organising others.
Deep-felt gratitude for this.
Your body is pampered by the many choices of daily massage and the spa goddesses are so kind and nurturing.
Laying by the pool or just relaxing in your wonderfully appointed room with a comfy big bed, fresh towels and linen and a beautiful bathroom. A daily supply of healthy chocolate cookies by your bed. You will feel like a goddess.
Yoga twice a day for the Bliss goddesses with Wid was body energising, mind calming, soul harmonising. Thank you Wid ☺️. Anyone can do yoga..advanced and beginners, Wid caters, with love, for all of us.
Your taste senses are delighted by the women who put out an endless supply of amazing fresh delicacies. Freshest fruits, fresh squeezed juices, chia puddings, new treats for breakfast every day and cooked eggs and bacon, if so desired. Lunch was inviting, varied and never too heavy, dinner was an array ever changing Balinese delights. Three course meals 3 times a day. No one goes hungry here and its hard to resist anything. And theres the daily smoothie. Vegetarians are well catered for.
And each night and day the table we share together is redecorated with such amazing detail and beauty that you feel like ...yes, a "Goddess"
Then there's the bliss days... well I took extra nurturing hours of massage, laying on the divine Uluwatu beach for a day and an Indonesian cooking class. Loved each one to bits. Others went of to Tanalot temple, rode bikes from Kintamarni volcano through the villages, white water rafting and snorkelling, just to mention only a few. The choices are varied and many. No boredom here for those that want adventure and to be on the go or those that want to truly unwind and rejuvenate. And if you must, you are only a little wander away from Seminyak shops, where you can spend a few hours shopping.
So Goddess Retreat is a feast for the senses and you with be delighted, inspired, rejuvenated, enlivened and blessed. Don't ponder too long, don't question any more if you are deserving of this... just do it and live and love.
And ladies, I suggest going alone, you will meet wonderful people.
Love and light
