HOSHINOYA Bali

Discover a wellness break inspired by traditional Balinese spa rituals, and experience the transformative journey of the Holistic Ritual of Sacred Valley at HOSHINOYA Bali, Ubud, amongst the lush green hills, and jungles, in the valley of the Tukad Pakerisan.

HOSHINOYA Bali

Delve into the ancient philosophy of Tri Hita Karana – the harmony between people, nature, and the divine – with HOSHINOYA Bali’s carefully crafted Holistic Ritual of Sacred Valley which unfolds over five days and four nights, focusing on relaxation of the body, mind, and soul. Rooted in local customs and the beauty of the nature that surrounds the resort, this unique journey is designed to purify, rejuvenate, and promote inner peace in a tranquil retreat nestled amongst the trees.

The phases of the Holistic Ritual include:

Water purification and renewal

Embark on a profound journey of purification and renewal with the ancient Balinese tradition of melukat (cleansing of the mind and soul). This sacred ritual begins with an exploration of the revered Tirta Empul temple, to gain insight into the spiritual significance and cultural importance of melukat. From there, guests will venture into the heart of Sebatu village, where a hidden pure water source, known only to locals for its purifying properties, awaits. Guests will be guided down to the spring, to embrace the cool, crystal-clear waters to melt away stress and improve blood circulation throughout the body, with the purifying essence of the water, creating a sense of clarity and inner peace, and a connection with the ancient wisdom of Balinese culture. Guests will emerge feeling revitalised, and ready to embark on the next phase of the transformative journey.

Stretching the muscles

Engage the body, mind, and spirit in a daily practice of movement and mindfulness with a programme of muscle activation and flexibility designed to awaken dormant muscles and enhance flexibility. Guests will begin each day with invigorating stretching exercises, carefully designed to release tension, improve circulation, and prepare the body for the day ahead. Guided by instructors, guests will explore a variety of dynamic stretches that target every muscle group, promoting a greater range of motion and mobility. In addition to stretching, guests have the opportunity to participate in private yoga sessions tailored to their

individual needs and abilities. Experienced instructors will guide guests through a series of poses designed to strengthen the body, calm the mind, and nourish the spirit.

A Balinese dance lesson

On the third day, guests can immerse themselves in the rhythmic movements of traditional Balinese dance. Each step is a celebration of life, each gesture a prayer for harmony and balance. Through dance, activate the muscles but also awaken the spirit, experiencing a profound sense of joy and connection to the rich cultural heritage of Bali. The Balinese believe true wellness is achieved through a holistic approach that integrates body, mind, and spirit, empowering guests to embrace life with vitality, grace, and joy.

Eating mindfully and savouring each bite fosters a deeper connection between body, mind, and spirit, enhancing the overall transformative experience of the Holistic Ritual. Spa treatments

At HOSHINOYA Bali, the spa experiences are designed to leave guests feeling deeply revitalised. Spa rooms are located a short walk down the hill from the resort, allowing guests to become attuned to the sounds and energies of the jungle, as well as the gentle flowing water of the Pakerisan River, below; it is an environment that encourages deep relaxation.

I have worked with Travel PR for almost 20 years - during which time they have helped to facilitate access to a wide range of clients, tourist boards, destinations and tour operators. While the contours of travel have inevitably changed during that time, Travel PR have been a constant. I have always found them to be professional, helpful, and easy to deal with.
