Beauty is Duty and Duty is Beauty
Find inner and outer beauty on Bali
Bali, the famed Island of the Gods, will enchant you with its beauty, varied landscape of hills and mountains, rugged coastlines and sandy beaches, lush rice terraces and barren volcanic hillsides, as well as deeply spiritual and unique culture.
Kristina Lenard & Jadranko Miklec prepared a rich Yoga program that will allow you to dive deep into the beauty of Nature and explore yourself and this exotic corner of the World.
We chose OMunity Green Resort as our getaway, a magical place tucked away in a small traditional village in the heart of Bali. It's a little eco-friendly paradise that offers charming accommodation, delicious organic food and an ideal setting for relaxation.
If you are interested in spending a week discovering Bali before the retreat, we prepared an ideal combination of Bali nature, local culture, beach, activities and gastronomy that will be led by Kristina Lenard and local Bali guide from 18-25 April 2020. Jadranko won't be participating in this part of the trip and there won't be any yoga in the program. We will focus on exploring, sightseeing and discovering the many beauties Bali has to offer,

Bali Discovery week 18-25 April 2020
OMunity is located in the province of Sudaji, a rare Bali gem untouched by tourism, filled with farms, rice paddies, temples, and a bustling river perfect for rafting. It’s residents are incredibly outgoing, curious, warm and friendly, and are living with the traditions of their ancestors. Sudaji is the home of the majestic Sekumpul waterfall; a seven level cascade featuring an 81m and 108m twin waterfall. It is the tallest waterfall in Bali and claimed by many visitors to be the “Mother of all waterfalls in Bali”.
The retreat center offers several styles of accommodation, all handmade with organic materials by the community of Sudaji.
“OMStay” are four traditionally built Bamboo houses beautifully decorated, with high ceilings, gorgeous handmade canopy beds and outdoor covered ensuite bathroom. OMFamily house is a two story all wood house with a queen, and three single beds and one interior shower. Four OMStone rooms have King sized beds, and an ensuite interior stone bathroom. OMTreehouse is an all bamboo house nestled in the trees with two queen beds, private outdoor rain shower down a short flight of stone stairs, with two separate indoor toilets. OMCave is a single room with private patio, views of the rice field and trees and ensuite bathroom. OMJacuzzi suite comes with a supplement because it has a queen sized bed, ensuite interior bathroom, and private pool (please note that there is no jacuzzi but a private outdoor pool in front of the suite).
By choice, OMunity does not offer TV’s or telephones in any of the rooms. All bathrooms are specially designed with black Balinese reflexology stone floors, natural bricks each personally inscribed with “OM” by hand, western toilets and a hot water rain shower. All rooms include a terrace, sitting area and small tables for reading, resting, having a cup of tea or coffee, or eating your meal. Each room is cleaned and tidied up daily by OMunity´s housekeeping staff, and despite being almost fully outdoors, the property is clean and most guests feel the urge to root themselves with nature and roam around OMunity barefoot.
You can find pictures of OMunity in the slideshow galleries and read more about the retreat center and its reviews here:
