We couldn’t be more excited to share more details about this incredible women only adventure!
We will explore temples and rice fields, climb a volcano, swing over the jungle, meet playful monkeys, relax with a massage, swim in our private pool, eat amazing food cooked for us by our personal chef while in Ubud, and so much more!!!
We will paint and draw and connect with our inner artist while experiencing the true essence of Bali! We are lucky enough to have with us as my assistant and art director, Joanne Lauzon “JoeGirl” of InDetail Creative and Live your Spirit, who will open our eyes to the beauty of Bali, through the eyes of an artist. You will be supplied with sketch book, paints and all other supplies needed as Joanne guides us through creating memories of our trip in a unique and creative way.
I will meet you at the airport in Bali where the adventure begins. Our driver will whisk us away to our luxury, private villa in Ubud, the cultural centre of the island. Just off the main road but tucked away in it’s own little compound, Villa San is our home for 7 nights. We will be pampered by our private chef, luxury accommodations, pool and stunning living spaces.
After our time in Ubud, we will make our way over to the coast to Nusa Dua, arguably the most beautiful beach on the island. We will spend 3 nights here in 5 star luxury at the Mulia Resort (or similar). We will enjoy the beach and a few highlights of this part of the island.

What you can expect
We are the perfect blend of luxury and local.
We keep the groups small so we can give you the personal attention and luxury experience you deserve. The group size is a max of 10 travellers.
We have luxury accommodations that are shared 2 people to a room.
There is a lot of time spent planning and deciding on how best to plan our itineraries so you have the best experience possible. Occasionally the weather could affect our plans so we ask that you be flexible. We try and incorporate the best local experiences and keep the luxury feel we all want. We do a lot of walking and a certain level of fitness is required but if there is an excursion you do not feel comfortable taking you are under no obligation to do so. Sometimes a different outing can be planned for you, if not, our beautiful accommodations are always an enjoyable place to spend a few hours.
The Dining Experiences
In Ubud we have a private chef! Just imagine how decadent that is going to be. We will likely eat most of our evening meals at the villa and some lunches, but when we are out exploring it is fun to try local family run restaurants too.
When we are at the beach, we have a beautiful breakfast each morning right at the hotel.
The remaining meals will be provided according to our plans for the day.
Rest assured we always eat well on our adventures!
