Retreat Accommodation for your
Art +Yoga Retreat in Bali in 2024

Choose from 3 great beachside locations when you go on a Creative Living Retreat

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 able to sample small local restaurants ('warungs'), a coffee and ice-cream 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 (the 2022 retreats have 2 or 3 'free' nights).

You have a wide choice of accommodation to choose from, and breakfast is always included:

Amarta Beach Bungalows  3 /3.5* is always popular and books out quickly. Offering two types of A/C rooms all sea-facing  and set amidst palmy gardens, with a swimming pool and a good little seaside restaurant. 8 minute walk to the villa along a quiet village lane.

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 good 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.
