Art,Writing and Yoga Retreats in Bali and Sri Lanka 


Our Creative Living Retreats in BALI resume in 2022.

And we have a painting retreat with Este Macleod in SRI LANKA in late November 2021 

Experience the depth of well-being which arises from being truly relaxed and finding your creativity flourish amidst supportive friendship and effective, professional tuition throughout these unforgettable 6-day retreats and 2-day workshops by the sea.


Our retreats are held at the luxurious Villa Nilaya Bali, on absolute beachfront, surrounded by coconut groves in a beautiful seaside village 90 minutes on the south coast from Denpasar airport. Calm, tranquil, safe. Everything you need - all taken care of.  


2020 is the first year since 2012 that we have taken a break, as global travel restrictions and health concerns are foremost in our lives, but an exciting new program of creative pleasure is now available for 2022, with new retreats, fabulous teachers including our longed-for  Writing in Paradise with Shelley Kenigsberg.  

All you need bring is your intention. Our Creative Living Retreats will stimulate your imagination and hone your skills. They're suitable for everyone. 

The daily gentle yoga on the art retreats will suit all abilities, and of course our retreats are always welcoming to men and women. See you next year!


"Creativity is intelligence having fun"   Albert Einstein

Whether you’re a confident artist, writer or yogi, or just setting out to discover your innate talents, you will flourish amongst nurturing expertise, calm and spacious natural beauty, friendship and fun.

Each Retreat is a complete package 

Starting from AU$1990 for a six-night retreat, you’ll enjoy seaside accommodation of your choice, airport transfer, most meals, cultural day trips and boating in beautiful East Bali, artist-quality materials and up to 30 hrs tuition in art or writing, a Balinese massage, plus daily yoga instruction from our inspirational instructor, and for those that wish to practice, mindfulness meditation with Anna.


You’re assured of plenty of one-on-one tuition

The working environment is comfortable, spacious and beautiful. You can dive into the sea or dip in the pool to freshen up and wander back to your easel whilst lunch is being prepared … upstairs a massage is waiting for you, and at the end of a day’s painting, slip into yoga-mode and come to allow the deep rest that you’re longing for seep into your  body as evening falls. Wander downstairs amidst candlelight and enjoy sumptuous Balinese food prepared by our chefs; on other nights we’ll discover some of East Bali’s best cuisine, and every so often there’s a night all to yourself.


Partners or non-participating friends are welcome on our retreats, with special prices, so just ask!

Even if you’ve been to Bali many times, chances are you haven’t discovered the beauty of East Bali. It’s different. More authentic. Less hurried.

Retreats are good for everyone around you because you'll return home calmer, rested and inspired. You'll be better for yourself, and everyone around you.

Our retreats are not just for women and  special interest activities can be arranged for you before or after your retreat.
