Ubud is a spiritual vortex on Bali, The Island of the Gods. It offers the broadest range of healing modalities, and the planet's most diverse selection of vegetarian, vegan, and raw foods.

How do airport transfers work?
Airport transfers are included in your retreat package. To ensure a soft landing in Bali, please book your flight as soon as possible so that transfers can be organized well in advance of your arrival. When you arrive, you will be met by a private driver and transported to our venue. It may not be possible to arrange transfers if flight details are provided last minute.

Do I need a visa?
US citizens are not required to get a visa if you are planning to stay in Indonesia for under 30 days. Indonesia has waived visas for many countries. Please visit the Embassy of Indonesia website to check your county, or if you plan to stay longer than 30 days. If you overstay your visa, you will be charged approximately $30/day, which must be paid in Indonesian Rupia as you enter customs.
IMPORTANT: If your passport expires within six months of your arrival date to Indonesia, please be sure to renew your passport before you go to avoid any issues at immigration. There are no exceptions.
Is travel insurance required?
Travel insurance is most highly recommended as it is inexpensive, protects your trip, and provides peace of mind. All retreat payments are non-refundable, so it's essential to prepare for any unexpected personal, political, environmental, or weather-related incident or pre-existing medical condition that might prevent or interrupt your trip.
Should you elect not to purchase travel insurance, you will be assuming 100% of any costs incurred for trip cancellation or trip interruption. TravelEx, World Nomads, and Allianz are three respected organizations. There is a range of policies and options, so ensure you are clear on exactly what is covered.

There are no required vaccinations for travel to Bali; however, there are suggested vaccinations given by the Center for Disease control. For the complete list of what is recommended, please visit the CDC Website. Please consult with your primary care physician to decide what is best for you.
