Escape Haven has got to be the epitome of what Bali for women should be about. It offers pure indulgence, luxury and rejuvenation allowing women from all walks of life to take time out for themselves and recharge batteries in paradise. What we like about the Escape Haven experience is that it aims not to be a hardcore back bending yoga retreat or an intimidating surfing trip.
The luxurious, private sanctuary offers women a place that feels non-threatening for a solo woman traveller or women travelling with friends to enjoy a huge range of activities tailored to the individual- spa treatments, yoga classes, surf lessons, meditation sessions, shopping tours, nutritious cuisine, fitness instruction, holistic wellness activities, healthy cooking classes, and detox advice- so that you can be nourished from the inside out and pampered from the outside in. This luxurious sanctuary exclusively for women was created to help women reclaim their depleted energies and be nurtured back into flourishing vitality.
In addition to their gorgeous villa in Seminyak, this year Escape Haven has also set themselves up in a another brand new villa space in Canggu. This gorgeous luxury haven is beautifully set amongst rice paddy fields, yet still close to the beach. The new villa boasts various awe inspiring stand alone bedrooms with outdoor en suites and wonderfully spacious bathtubs.
There is an array of yoga spaces to choose from and 2 luxurious pools to bask in the sun next to while being pampered head to toe or enjoying a cheeky mojito. With stunning grounds and everything you would want for your week in paradise at your fingertips, you will enjoy being secluded from the hustle and bustle of Bali that a lot of people prefer to avoid.
A day in Escape Haven differs from guest to guest depending on the package of choice. You can choose from yoga, surfing, well-being, active and more. Of course for the woman that wants to spend a few wonderfully lazy days around the pool- this is strongly encouraged too. The day will start with fresh juices, a lovely brew and a gourmet breakfast to fuel the day’s activities as well as a deep sense of wellness. Then the surfer girls will start the hunt for the infamous perfect turquoise waves, the yoga girls will enjoy their morning practice and the active girls will head out for some SUPing, cycling along rice paddies, personal training session or rice paddy walking.
The wellbeing options include activities such as Balinese healing, tarot reading, a shopping tour, temple visits or a variety of other cultural and foodie activities. All options can be chosen as a part of any program. The beauty of flexibility, experienced staff (they’ve been operating for 7 years) and reputation (Bali Bible tried and tested and multiple awards) is what sets Escape Haven apart from any other Bali retreat.
The afternoon is all about dream time when pampering is In the afternoon you are encouraged to indulge in spa treatments and take time out. Your perfect day ends with a delicious banquet of fresh organic Balinese cuisine and a yoga nidra sequence to encourage a wonderful, deep, rejuvenating sleep.
New Zealander Janine Hall, founder of Escape Haven retreats has a very strong philosophy in mind that resounds throughout the retreat- "At Escape Haven we believe that every woman has the ability to rejuvenate, transform, and blossom into the most radiant version of herself when given time, space and support of a nourishing, uplifting environment. We believe that a woman can only give what she has – which is why we think it’s important for her to press pause and replenish her physical, mental, emotional and spiritual tank every now and then. Our belief is that by investing in her wellbeing and giving back to herself, a woman can live up to her full potential, fulfill her dreams, and ultimately, give back to others.”
With testimonials from past guests all pledging an experience that exceeded expectations in everyway, Escape Haven is a no brainer for any woman looking for a complete Bali experience without the stress of organisation or for women wanting to travel for the first time on their own. At Escape Haven they believe that anything is possible, and that bringing women together creates an empowering sense of connection, community, and sisterhood that inspires profound positive change. Make sure you book and experience what we can describe only as pure bliss!
