50+ and Fabulous Retreat in Bali

7 Night 50+ and Fabulous Retreat in Bali: 20 – 27 November 2022

This retreat is for anyone over 50 who is looking for an adventure, some new connections, a taste of the unknown, and a grand mix of nature, creativity, culture, and a lot of laughter!

Fabulous Retreat in Bali

Welcome to the 50+ and Fabulous Retreat! Together with your host Laurie Broomberg, this is a retreat of adventure, exploration, healing growth relaxation and embracing this beautiful life after 50 with new energies and wisdom.

During this very special week in Bali, you will experience the Balinese culture, immerse yourself in nature at its best, get your creative juices flowing, pamper yourselves into oblivion, indulge in delicious cuisine, make new friends, unleash your need for an adrenalin rush (always optional), laugh, cry and everything in between.

Be prepared for what Bali will offer you – keep an open heart and an open mind and all that you wish for will be delivered!  This retreat is a deeply fulfilling journey of new discoveries within, and around you.

Day 1 – Settle In
  • At 2pm, you will arrive at our beautiful 4.5* Resort in Ubud. Relax, ground yourself and settle into your new surroundings.
  • At 4pm we will gather together for introductions and a Balinese Welcome and Blessing Ceremony.
  • At 6.30pm, Dinner will be served at the Hotel for introductions and getting to know your fellow retreaters/ life lovers.
DAY 2 – Culture

Breakfast at 7.30am as we will leave for our day’s adventure by latest 8.30am. We will travel to a sacred water temple surrounded by ancient shrines and crystal-clear water fed by natural springs. Here we will take part in a traditional ancient water healing ceremony where we will be cleansed and blessed in natural holy water. (Please Note: Entrance to the temple is not permissible for those who are menstruating – if that’s still a thing at our age.) The Balinese believe that bathing in these waters is a very healing and spiritual experience and many important rituals are held here. This will be the perfect opportunity to set your intention for the rest of the week, to release and let go of what is no longer serving you, and of course, time to bond with your travellers.

Lunch is at the amazing Tegallalang Rice Terraces as we overlook the breathtaking scenery. Followed by a swing to freedom out over the rice fields (optional adrenaline rush, for those who want to embrace their youth and fit in with all the 20-somethings getting the perfect Insta shot!). We will finish this day off with some coffee and tea tasting with the famous Luwak Kopi makers. The Luwak Kopi (coffee) is considered a delicacy among avid coffee enthusiasts. (You will return to the hotel between 3-4 pm).

Free time to explore the restaurants in Ubud, or stay in and rest.

DAY 3 – Pamper Day

For those of you who would love to practise yoga or a walk on the Campuhan ridge, a little exercise before breakfast, and then the reward of a day of pampering!

A 2-hour spa package awaits, choose from Full body massages, mani, pedi, scrubs…a whole menu of joy to choose from. Free time for lunch, followed by more relaxation as we head for the hot and cold pools of the Tjampuhan spa beside the River Tjampuhan. Steam rooms and saunas are available for use as well as the hotel swimming pool for a bit of vitamin D. A real Chill Day.

After some gentle yoga and breakfast, we will head to a traditional Balinese village where we will embark on a culinary adventure, unlocking the secrets of authentic Balinese cooking, utilizing traditional ingredients which we will find at the local market before learning preparation methods in a fully equipped community village kitchen. Of course, we will eat the products of our culinary skills for lunch.

For the afternoon – “Batik” is a traditional process of dying whole cloth with beautiful patterns that originated in Indonesia. This 3-hour batik-making experience will allow you to embrace your artistic side as you create your own unique design, with all the materials and guidance provided by a Balinese Batik Guru. The workshop will be easy and relaxing allowing you to create a masterpiece that you can take home with you.

DAY 5 – Spiritual Day

A walk through the rice paddies and a hearty breakfast before you take some time to explore Ubud, the shops, the Market, Monkey Forest, or chill by the pool.

You may opt for a leisurely lunch in town, but be back at the hotel by 2.15pm and prepare to be wowed with an immersive Ancient Sound Healing Session starting at 3pm at Ubuds’ famous Pyramids of Chi, where you will be propelled into a deep meditative state, connecting to the chakra system and allowing your body to feel, heal, relax and release.

DAY 6 – Boats and Snorkelling

An early breakfast, then grab your beachwear as we head out to Sanur Beach to catch a boat over to Nusa Lembongan and Penida (40 min boat ride), where we will snorkel at a few different sites around the islands. Look out for Manta rays!

A chance for you to breathe in that fresh ocean air and feel the sand between your toes, with a late lunch and some lounging on the sunbeds while sipping on fresh coconuts and taking a refreshing dip. (lunch is included)

If the sun is not your thing, take a walk along the beach path, and do some shopping at the local stalls.

DAY 7 – Nature Day

After a gentle yoga session and breakfast, our guide Putu will show us some of the best Waterfalls/ Nature in Bali, as we take a drive in a topless car, with the wind in our hair, and views that are out of this world. Nature in Bali is like none other – 50 shades of green is an understatement. The plants, trees, flowers, it’s hard to describe the sheer beauty of what exists here in its natural state.

The afternoon is free for optional extra adventuring in Nature – Take a quad bike through the jungle, ride the gentle rapids of the Ayung river (breathtaking surroundings), or ride an electric bike through the rice fields (uphills are a breeze!!)…… or more shopping in Ubud.

Farewell dinner with a sunset view.

Day 8 – Farewell

The final morning yoga flow and breakfast, followed by a sharing circle and a few hours to relax/ pack/shop before checking out of the hotel at 12pm.

This will not be a goodbye – it will be an “until we meet again”.

The retreat includes:

  • 7 Nights 4.5* accommodation
  • 7 breakfasts
  • 3 lunches
  • Welcome and Farewell Dinner
  • All activities as shown on the itinerary
