Indonesian wellness retreats

When you've grown weary of South East Asia's buzzing cities and compelling culture, spending a few days in a rejuvenating hideaway will give you the chance to catch your breath and give something back to your body. You might even want to dedicate an entire holiday to rejuvenation. Pass your time meditating, taking yoga classes, feasting on organic food and indulging in traditional massage treatments, to emerge relaxed, revived and ready to hit the road again.

What to expect from an Indonesian wellness experience...

With a peace-loving outlook, a glorious coastline and an interior rich with rolling rice terraces, Bali is the perfect place to set about some serious self-healing. Buried in the beautiful countryside surrounding Ubud, next to the River Ayung, COMO Shambala Estate is one of Bali’s best-loved retreats. Home to a sacred spring believed to have healing properties, it’s guaranteed to get you onto your spiritual high. 

Less celebrated but equally charming, Bagus Jati is a little ‘wellspring of inspiration’ tucked away in the hills beyond Ubud. Composed of just 18 villas nestled amongst five hectares of tropical forest, you’ll feel instantly at one with nature here. While away the hours hiking in the hills, wandering through the organic gardens, taking healthy cooking workshops and trying aqua-aerobics.

Alternatively, if you’re craving some time on the coast, Amankila may well be the wellness retreat for you. Sitting in the shadow of Mount Agung with its own private stretch of golden beach, Amankila is nothing short of gorgeous. Combine the setting with a few luxurious days of herbal scrubs, wraps and massages and you’ve got something that is sure to make your soul sing. 

While Bali is the classic choice for a spot of mind-cleansing, MesaStila in Central Java is a jaw-dropping health retreat in the jungle. Perched on a hilltop colonial Dutch coffee estate, it’s packed with plantation grandeur and far-reaching valley views. It’s a decadent place for a detox and just a lovely place to be.
