    Best part of this retreat: small, cozy groups. No “mass-production” feeling. A couple of people, a lot of attention from the organizers and instructors. Everyone around had a good chance to concentrate on themselves, on the journey they came to achieve. The location in Ubud was simply breath-taking! The bungalow was beautiful and comfortable, nothing to say. This was my second time in Bali and I’ve seen the Island from a different perspective. Lili, the organizer showed us hidden places in the jungle I could never dream of! No tourists around, she gave us the real journey. We had lunch with a Balinese family and my wife participated in a healing session. Our stay was simply amazing. Thank you for the unforgettable experience!

    I have organized a team building retreat with the Samsara team. They had been highly professional. We were a team of 12 (of a marketing company) and so much we have lived together! Perfect adventures in hidden locations, Bali was truly amazing. I loved the local villages and the jungle tours. This is something we will never forget! And thank you for the little touch of our last day! The best goodbye party ever!

    The Samsara team is a really interesting mix of people, coming together for this exchange of experiences, local guides, world-traveler yogis, free spirit philosophers, general hippies. Everyone giving their side to the story: spirituality, inspiration, exercise, local culture, or just holiday cheerfulness. The bungalow resort is on a secret hidden location and it is simply unique. This was my 3rd time in Bali and definitely the best. The group was great, I didn’t laugh so much in ages :)) I’ve loved the river bathing tour and what a Sunset at the rice fields ! I was simply happy with everything. Thank you so much dear Samsara!

    Really good option if you wanna go with your friends or group. I’ve been there as a part of a solo journey but planning to go back with a bunch of friends as a group holiday. Good things should be shared 😉 And the team delivered on every angle! Amazing snorkeling experience in Nusa Penida, beautiful temple visits and jungle hiking, relaxing atmosphere and a great & funny guide. Thank you! I hope to see you soon again all of you!
