Join us to uncover the secrets of Bali and the islands of Komodo. Experience a life-changing journey that focuses on creating opportunities to re-connect, as much or as little, with yourself. Indonesia is easily the best destination for transformative and experiential travel, which this journey includes, in just the right amounts.
Adding to the balance of this experience, we explore fascinating cultures, embark on fun outdoor activities, immerse ourselves in Balinese culture, and taste impeccable Indonesian cuisine. And let us not forget about the daily massages and yoga classes at our breathtaking villa. Our chefs and hosts are waiting to introduce you to the magical beauty of these islands!

Your Host

Highlights

Pause, Regroup & Daily Pampering

Discover the Balinese way of life and rejuvenate with transformative experiences and massages. Our calm, peaceful villas provide a sacred space for inner reflection and relaxation. Expect to be pampered throughout on this flexible Journey of Renewal.

As Active As You Want To Be

Should you feel like being active, choose from volcano hiking, biking the rice paddies, trekking the jungle, yoga sessions, snorkeling, and so many more options in this breathtaking environment. Choose to do as much or as little as you want on this journey.

Rich, Colorful Culture & Traditions

In Indonesia, experience a culture where outright anger leads to a loss of respect from the community. Where life rotates around religious ceremonies and the power of nature. Upholding traditions is entrenched in society and witnessing this is a humbling experience itself. Discover a way of life where embracing each moment is very much at the forefront.

Cherish New Friendships

Joining a small, curated journey by Art In Voyage is always a chance to grow your circle of friends; from the like-minded guests which we carefully group together, to your people-loving Art In Voyage hosts. In Bali, however, you will find that circle quickly expands to the friendly and outgoing locals of Indonesia, always eager to welcome you into their hearts, and into their homes.
