2024 Retreats

Ubud, Bali

The Perfect Blend of Growth & Self Care

Is this a full-on growth workshop?  Not really.  Woo-woo up the wazoo?  Not quite.  Let’s call it Schoolies for f***ing tired people who just want to take a crap in peace without answering work emails or your kid’s existential questions.  


Just kidding.  There’s a little learning, a little growth, and a lot of fun.  Business in front, naps in the back, if you will. (The learning is optional, the naps are not.)



Really, it’s for anyone who wants to escape the chaos and do all the “re-“s… relax, reset, rejuvenate, release, recover, re-evaluate, reinvest, remember and reclaim.

it’s a retreat like nothing else you’ve seen in Bali – a unique approach we call “Choose Your Own Adventure” that blends fascinating neurosciences and targeted life and business analysis to actually gets you reaching the goals you set for yourself… with a side of meditation and cocktails by the pool.

Our wonderful friend and fellow Work Wife, Bec Mayo, has you covered:

“Our company is called First Travel Group and we are an accredited agency with the Australian Federation of Travel Agents (AFTA). We are also a member of ATAS – The Australian Travel Accreditation Scheme. We’d love to help you with your travel insurance for the retreat! We can offer a 10% discount and we use both Covermore as well as NIB so we can find which option is most suitable for each traveller.
We are also happy to help with flights for attendees. We assist with quoting and finding the most suitable fares, adding frequent flyer details, meal and seating requests (where allowed) and support with itinerary changes (voluntary and involuntary).”

 Please ensure you familiarise yourself with the following information, terms and conditions before reserving your space at the Retreat:

Check In / Check Out

Our hotel's check-in on Day 1 is 3:00pm.  Check-out of Day 4 is 11:00am.

Can we drink the water at the hotel?

The hotel's water comes from a well and has been tested to be clean and safe.  It is perfect to wash your hands, face and shower with.  However, to save you a round of "Bali Belly", we do not advise you to drink or brush your teeth with water anywhere on the island.  The hotel will provide clean drinking water to your room for safe consumption and use.

Does the hotel have Wifi?

Yes, the hotel has fiber-optic WiFi throughout the property so you can stay in touch with home easily.  All rooms are well equipped with at least one universal outlet for your electrical and phone charging needs, that can be used without an adapter. 

Can I stay extra days before or after the Retreat?

You are welcome to extend your stay at the resort subject to room availability.  You can do this by booking directly with the hotel.  Alternatively, you might want to explore the many different parts of Bali that are well worth visiting and staying at.

Can I bring my family?

If possible, we'd encourage you to attend alone in order to get the most out of your Retreat experience and to connect best with others in your industry.

If you are bringing a spouse, you will need to book a "Single Occupancy" ticket (subject to availability).  Please note that additional guests staying in your room will have their breakfast buffet included, but all other meals and Retreat activities will not be available to additional room guests.

We do ask that you come without the kiddies as each room has limited bed space and we would love for our attendees to be able to focus during meditation and restorative practices during the Retreat with limited guest noise.

Why are there multiple pricing options?

In an unusual arrangement, we have paid the hotel to book out all available rooms as well as the hotel's facilities for members of our retreat.  (Think how much more relaxing it will be to meditate without a random family of toddlers sitting nearby!)

Therefore, we are paying per bed per room and also for the use of the hotel for our conference workshop activities.  If attendees require a room all to themselves, we need to recover the costs of the space outlaid - so it's pay per bed space instead of per room. (Obviously, that is why share room prices are cheaper.)

We have also factored in the 21% Balinese Tax and Service fee, which is usually an additional cost to a hotel's room rates.

What is the difference between Double Occupancy and Single Occupancy?

Double Occupancy is a room that has two twin beds which you will be sharing with another Retreat attendee.  You can nominate a preferred attendee if you know a friend who is coming, or you can be assigned to another amazing attendee to make a new friend!  We will do our best to pair you with someone best suited to you.

Single Occupancy means that you will be the single Retreat attendee occupying that room.  The room you are in will be a King bed for your own personal use.

How do I pay for my ticket?

Once you register for a ticket, we will contact you directly via email with information regarding your request availability.  If your requested room is available, you will be issued with an invoice for a non-refundable booking payment of $600 inc. GST (which will come off the total of your ticket price) which must be paid immediately to secure your spot.

The remaining balance will be due on May 15th, 2023.

Can I purchase a separate conference ticket and find my own accommodation?

We have specifically designed this event to be optimised by staying overnights at the venue with other attendees.  Though we'd love to make space for everyone, the resort only caters to a maximum number comfortably, so the best option for this style of Retreat is to keep numbers capped to those staying at the hotel.  We cannot separate out an accommodation cost from the conference component as the whole experience, including accommodation, is a part of this retreat.

Cancellation Policy

Our cancellation policy is very clear in the contract we sign with the hotel.  Please be sure to read all the Terms and Conditions below before you book as we adhere to them and they are not flexible. 

Payment Terms

Confirmation non-refundable deposit payment of $600 inc. GST to be made upon booking to secure position, with remaining balance to be paid on May 15th. A full list of inclusions is found in our Terms and Conditions below.

Flights, travel insurance and any extra excursions, drinks, food, etc. to be paid by yourself.  

What are the entry requirements to Bali from Australia?

From May 2022, a Visa is required when travelling to Bali from Australia for 30 days or less. You can apply for and purchase a Visa upon arrival at international airports. The cost for tourist visas is around $50 AUD – and you should be prepared to pay in cash.


Do I need to have a Covid-19 Vaccination to enter Indonesia?

You must have received a full initial COVID-19 vaccine course (usually 2 doses) to enter Indonesia, however, for domestic travel, further vaccination and booster requirements apply for adults and children aged between 6-17 years.  Please note Indonesia requires proof of vaccination to enter or a letter detailing exemption. 


Other Vaccinations and Shots

Hepatitis A vaccine is highly recommended for travel to Bali and Indonesia and there should not be more than 10 years since your last Tetanus shot.  Speak to your family doctor about recommendations for your health.


Tipping/Gratuity in Bali

Cash gratuity for hotel staff is welcomed.  A box is located at the front desk where you can voluntarily put your gratuity.  At the end of each month, the box is opened and the money inside is split equally between all team members (bar, restaurant, spa, housekeepers, etc.)

150,000 IDR is recommended per day (around $15 AUD).


How to Dress

In Bali, you can wear whatever you'd normally wear on a beach holiday, like shorts and sundresses, etc. especially in the south and along the beaches.  Wen visiting temples, you have to wear a sarong, but don't worry - if you forget to bring one you can usually rent appropriate attire at the temple for a small fee.


Passport Requirements

You need a valid passport with at least 6 months before expiry to travel overseas.  If you're an Australian citizen or a dual citizen wanting to travel as an Australian, you need a valid Australian passport.  Every person travelling must have their own passport.  Like many countries, Australia is experiencing unprecedented demand for passports.  If you need a new passport, you should lodge your application now.  Where possible, don't book flights without a valid passport.  More info can be found here.


Cash is King

Bali is a cash island.  Plan ahead and, if you are out and about, make sure to always have some cash on hand to pay drivers, local warungs, street vendors, etc.

The more upscale boutiques, restaurants and hotels accept cards, usually adding a 3% credit card fee.
