The Retreat starts at our first accommodation location in Ubud at 3pm on Saturday the 11th of June. You are welcome to book in from 2pm. It’s best if you fly in the day before so you can get a good night’s sleep before you join us. Alternatively, you can land on the morning of the 11th and we can arrange an airport pickup for you. Just make sure you land by latest 9am, because with new COVID application entry requirements you need to allow for any immigration delays. The drive to Ubud from the airport is approx. 1.5 hours. We want you to also have some settling in time before we all gather at 3pm. If jetlag is a consideration please take this into account based on your personal awareness on how you cope when transitioning from international travel.
The Retreat will finish at 12pm on Saturday the 18th, and we will be on one of the islands just off Bali. You will have a return boat ticket to Bali (already included in your Retreat package), which is an open ticket… so if you wish to stay a few more days on the island you are welcome to. Alternatively, you will be back in Sanur, Bali by the afternoon – latest 5pm Saturday 18 March (boats leave the island at 1pm, 3pm & 4pm). Sanur is a 30-45min taxi ride to the airport, so you could fly home that evening.
