Bali is one of my favorite places to travel to in the world! There is such a kind, tranquil, and spiritual side of the island that was exploited in Eat Pray Love. There is also another side filled with Western civilization pushing capitalism and Australian’s taking over bars. This different approach allows Bali to have the juxtaposition of a well-rounded island with something for everyone’s mood.
While traveling alone around Bali, I decided to go to Bliss Sanctuary for women in Canguu to recharge. I like retreats that allow me to tailor make my experience each day whether I want to explore, relax, learn, thrill seek or detox. Bliss is one of those retreats that offer you much more than just a 90-minute spa treatment per day. I partook in spiritual healers, readings from numerologists, life coaches as well as sightseeing around the island, yoga, surfing, and meditation every morning while sipping a fresh juice. I did this all in the comfort of a handful of other women who just like me decided Bliss was the dream retreat.
I am a strong advocate for female empowerment. Being around other women from different countries and all walks of life not only gives you perspective, but it builds confidence and human connection. Each day I would go off on my own journey and each night I would eat dinner with the women while we share our experiences. Bliss only accommodates small groups of less than 6 women per villa at any one time (no children, no couples)
Bliss is much more of a sanctuary than just a retreat, it is a paradise that welcomes women from all over the world traveling on their own, looking for a beautiful place to holiday, at a place to feel safe, relaxed, and rejuvenated.
