Bali’s Bliss Sanctuary for Women has been showered with accolades at the 2017 prestigious World Luxury Hotel Awards in Switzerland. Among a raft of achievements, the holistic retreat villas received the highest honours of Best Wellness Villa and Best Cultural Retreat in the World.

Bliss Sanctuary provides an empowering haven for women of all ages to escape, relax and unwind in the tranquil surrounds of Indonesia’s most iconic island paradise.

Founder and Adelaide native, Zoë Watson, created Bliss Sanctuary after feeling drained by the pressures of modern life. “I became more and more disconnected from myself,” she says, “I needed to take some time out for myself, but more importantly, I realised that I needed to create a space where all women could come to rest and reconnect.”

Bliss Sanctuary has welcomed and cultivated the growing trend of women travelling alone. Since 2010, the number of female solo travellers has increased by over 60%** and, with the enormous success of Bliss Sanctuary, it’s clearly only up from here.

Bliss Sanctuary welcomes women traveling on their own, without feeling alone. The boutique setting hosts only a handful of travellers at a time, fostering a small community of like-minded women and assuring privacy and peace.

“It is extremely important as women that we take time out to fulfil our needs, not as an employee, boss, cook, mother, sister or friend… but completely for ourselves,” says Zoë.

“Travelling solo allows you to move at your own pace; challenging yourself, following your interests, meeting new people and most importantly, discovering beautiful places whilst discovering more about you.”

More than just luxury accommodation, Bliss Sanctuary provides a complete holistic holiday.

The experiences available at Bliss Sanctuary are as unique and diverse as the women who visit them. A range of customisable fitness, healing, surfing, spa, humanitarian and detox packages are available. Each package includes unlimited spa and massage treatments, unlimited in-house yoga, unlimited sightseeing with a personal driver and fresh gourmet cuisine prepared on site.

Whether you’re looking for total relaxation with aromatherapy, hot stone massage and Hatha yoga, or adrenaline fuelled adventures to picturesque waterfalls, coral reefs and the best sunset cocktail bars, Bliss Sanctuary will provide the best Bali experience for women wanting some peaceful time out or a cultural experience.

Following the success of the boutique Canggu and Seminyak locations, Bliss Sanctuary is excited to announce a third locale in the cultural hub of Ubud. Nestled among rice paddies and lush Balinese jungle, the purpose-built sanctuary will feature an enormous infinity pool, treetop yoga and outdoor tropical garden bathrooms.

The opening of the Ubud Sanctuary is already hotly anticipated, with a growing waitlist for prospective guests.
