Where will you choose to stay on Retreat ?
Accommodation for participants
on Creative Living Retreats at Villa Nilaya
When you join a Creative Living Retreat you'll be coming to stay in the secluded seaside village of Mendira, on the South coast of Bali, about 90 minutes drive from the airport. It's a quiet community, extremely clean and tidy with very little traffic. We have been 'Runner-up' in Bali's 'Clean Green' contest for the last three years running!
You'll be ale to sample small local restaurants ('warungs'), a coffee and icecream cafe, a boutique and small gift shop an several temple complexes. It is a 5 km drive to the nearest main town of Candi Dasa.
The retreat hub is Villa Nilaya, a private villa, and this is where the retreat sessions, the yoga and lunches, as well as our at-home dinners will take place. Your accommodation is included in the cost of your retreat, as are most of your meals (most retreats have 2 free nights).
You have a wide choice of accommodation to choose from, and breakfast is always included:
Amarta Beach Bungalows is always popular and books out quickly. Offering three types of A/C rooms all sea-facing and set amidst palmy gardens, with a swimming pool and a very good restaurant. 8 minute walk to the villa along a quiet village lane.
(Standard - adequate older Standard Rooms, new Superior rooms and the spacious Villa Suites).
Sea Breeze Villas is a spacious sea side property offering 7 different categories of rooms, ranging from cute wooden seaside chalets to a luxuriously marbled 'honeymoon suite'. 2 swimming pools, restaurant, gym. A quiet 8 minute walk to the villa in the opposite direction from the other two options.
Candi Beach Resort offers 5-star resort facilities across a range of room options and 3 restaurants.
It is a ten minute walk from the Villa, and is situated close by to Amarta Bungalows.
Should you have need of transport to bring you to and from the villa, that's easily organised.
All three hotels are located on the sea front and offer excellent service and breakfasts. We have been working with each of them since the retreats began, so they're very familiar with assisting our retreatants - you'll be well looked after.
Please check the locations here and choose your options from the various packages offered for each retreat. All options are available on a first come-first served basis, so please do be in touch with us soon to secure your first option.
Please note that Candi Beach Resort publishes its prices in USD, and the retreats are priced in AUD. So if you decide to go for this upmarket option, please contact us for prices of these retreat packages as we are unable to predict a reliable conversion rate so far in advance of the retreats.
