Our Journey of Renewal to Bali and Komodo Islands is a chance for our guests to re-connect, as much or as little, with themselves, their significant other and with healthier living. Far from being boot camp, this journey, and all those from the same collection, is designed to show our guests that one does not have to give up great food, wine and fun to live a healthy life. Our wellness director Evan, assisted by our local yoga teachers, is there to help you find the right balance, make it fun all while enjoying life to the fullest. With mornings dedicated to fitness and yoga, our afternoons are filled with fun outdoor activities, ranging from spiritual & cultural tours to cooking class, hiking, trekking and biking. As always with Art In Voyage, all our activities are optional in attendance.

TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

Pause, regroup and enjoy daily pampering

Discover the Balinese way and rejuvenate with your very own wellness/fitness instructor, assisted by local yoga instructors and massage therapists. Enjoy the peace and quiet offered by our villas, and find the time to take care of yourself on this pampered and flexible journey...or renewal.

Be as active as you want it to be

From white water rafting to volcano hiking, from biking the rice paddies to trekking the jungle, from yoga sessions to snorkeling the incredible marine sanctuaries, you can do as much or as little as you want on this journey, in a breathtaking environment.

Incredible culture & traditions

In Bali, experience a culture where outright anger leads to a loss of respect from the community, where life rotates around religious ceremonies, dances and temples and where upholding traditions is very much part of their upbringing and entrenched in society. Discover a way of life where taking the time to enjoy the moment is very much at the forefront.

Cherish new friendships

Attending a small curated journey by Art In Voyage is always a chance to grow your circle of friends. But in Bali, you will find that circle quickly expand to the friendly and outgoing locals, always eager to welcome you into their hearts, and into their homes.
