About Your Host

sheila man bali interiors retreat dinner

Sheila Man was born in Argentina and spent 18 years in Sydney, Australia before moving to Bali, Indonesia in 2016. After moving to the island of the gods, she soon realised that Bali is home to some amazing designs. The combination of talented local artisans, a tropical climate that attracts designers from all over the world, and affordable construction costs allows designers to let their creativity run wild.


Armed only with an old iPhone, Sheila began documenting the gorgeous design around her. She found her passion! Her love of all things beautiful – Interior design, homewares and architecture – has led to a dream job: photographer. Since then she had the opportunity to work with the most talented designers, architects and business owners in Bali and beyond. Bali Interiors is now at the forefront of showcasing the most beautiful projects in interior design and has become the Design authority in Bali and surrounding islands.


“Bali is a magical island that encourages collaboration and creativity. I am incredibly grateful for the tremendous opportunities that it has provided me. Now I want to share all those beautiful places, people, designs and brands with you. I am opening my black book of connections that I’ve built over the years, so you can experience Bali in the same way I do.”



About the Property

Your home base during the retreat

For the 6 nights of the retreat, you will be staying at The Cotton House. A beautiful colonial style house consisting of 8 bedrooms located in the heart of Seminyak. 

We specifically chose this house because it took our breath away when we entered and it comes with many common areas, so you can connect easily with all of the other participants on this retreat. Wouldn’t it be great to spend time in the living room area, playing pool, while talking with likeminded people from the interior industry? You’ll get more insights while still being able to relax at this luxurious oasis!

This house also comes with an Alfresco dining area to come together and enjoy breakfast!

The luminous all white interiors of this house is guaranteed to make you feel relaxed after the whole day of adventuring around Bali! Especially when the sun sets and the outdoor lights reflect beautifully around the house, making it look even more magical at night! You can also enjoy a quick dip in their long swimming pool or relax on the sun loungers. .

Each bedroom offers its own ensuite bathroom, and each one room also has a different interior style. You can be sure to find some private moments here to recharge.

The strategic location of The Cotton House also allows you to experience the best of Bali, it’s a stone throw away from Seminyak’s eat street and shopping areas as well as the beach with the most beautiful sunsets.
