Staying in Bali’s cultural and spiritual centre of Ubud at an impeccable retreat, well-being experts will create a tailor-made wellness programme for you. This is an example itinerary which we can easily customise around your individual needs and preferences. Begin with a few days in Ubud, the cultural heart of Bali, where you will have the opportunity to meet and have a consultation with a traditional Balinese healer and shaman. You will also get to spend time with a respected local who will talk you through the region’s rice industry and tell you about traditional medicines, leaving you with a blessing.

This part of the trip also includes dinner with a local Hindu priest and his family. You’ll select fresh ingredients from their garden before they prepare a typical Balinese meal for you to enjoy together. During the course of the evening he will share his spiritual knowledge with you. Suitably refreshed and inspired, you’ll be whisked off to Java where you will visit an ancient Hindu temple, and find further relaxation with a traditional Javanese massage and Hammam ritual at your hotel.

Accommodation in Java

Four nights in Java Four nights in Java

Home to over half of Indonesia’s population as well as its sprawling capital, Jakarta, Java is a hugely diverse and fascinating place. Head away from the cities and you’ll discover a landscape of smouldering volcanoes, lush rice paddies and ethereal temples. Java is Indonesia’s fifth largest island and stretches 600 miles from east to west, with a string of volcanoes running along its central belt. We can help you explore the quieter, pristine parts of Java on private tours that help you fully appreciate the beauty of the island. Trek the Menoreh Hills or climb 3,000 feet to the summit of Mount Merapi; visit fragrant tea and coffee plantations; travel by horseback to the top of Mount Bromo for sunrise; and visit Kawah Ijen volcano with its pungent smells and mystical views across the eerie sulphuric crater lake.

Gedong Songo Temple visit Gedong Songo Temple visit

You will be met at your hotel and driven to the mountain slopes of Ungaran, about 900m above sea level, to visit Gedong Songo. The group of nine Hindu temples was originally built during the early period of the Medang Kingdom which controlled Java during the 8th and 9th centuries. Gedong Songo was built out of volcanic stone. You can either take a walk up to explore each temple, or go on horseback.

MesaStila: Hammam ritual MesaStila: Hammam ritual
