Discover another part of Bali, far from the crowded streets of Kuta and Seminyak, where you can relax deeply and gather all of your creative energy to focus on creating beautiful artwork with our talented, professional  artists whilst basking in the tranquil  setting of a delightful seaside village where the mountains meet the sea in beautiful East Bali. Enjoy massages, gentle hatha yoga, cultural adventures and healthy, delicious cuisine whilst staying in your choice of seaside  bungalows or resort hotels.


I have been creating these Creative Living retreats in Bali since 2012, and now in our 9th amazing year, I'm delighted to offer you  three fabulous  6-night painting retreats,  two 6-night textile dyeing and  design retreats - all of which include daily yoga - plus a 2-day painting workshop which you might like to combine with a retreat.


We are located at Villa Nilaya in the Village of Mendira,  a pretty  90-minute drive along the south coast from the airport, where life just happens that little bit more s-l-o-w-l-y … it's why we love it!

Our Unique Creative Living Art and Yoga retreats include:  

  • your accommodation at delightful sea-side bungalows or luxury hotels  (you choose the category you'd like to stay in)

  • all lunches and  most dinners prepared by the talented Villa Nilaya staff, specialising in zesty East Bali cuisine

  • a jazzy night out on the town in Candi Dasa for live music and fine dining 

  • airport transfer to Villa Nilaya where the retreats are held

  • daily yoga  classes with highly qualified and intuitive instructors, for all levels of experience and ability - including beginners

  • a day tour to discover Balinese textile productions and art or a half-day boat trip for a picnic and swim on a secluded beach 

  • professional tuition with ALL MATERIALS supplied
