Soulshine is located in Ubud, the centre of Bali’s spiritual and wellness scene. If you are tired of reading about the cute hipster cafes or villas in Canggu, and would rather be surrounded by rice paddies, tranquil nature, and ancient holy temples, then this is definitely for you.
So what is Soulshine?
Soulshine is one of the highest ranked resorts and yoga retreats in Ubud. It truly is an oasis!
“A place where people from around the world could enjoy the culture and beauty of Bali, share delicious food and drinks, be immersed in great music, create lifelong friendships and be surrounded by an incredible team whose smiles are as authentic as their hearts!” – Michael Franti (co-founder of Soulshine)
And that is the exact vibe that you will get when you come to Soulshine Bali.
The location is a little bit hidden, and to get there you’ll walk along a riverside that will lead you right into the resort. The view of the landscape from the cafe is so authentically Bali, all the while you are surrounded by the perfect fusion of luxury yet homey at the same time.
What we also love so much about Soulshine is that it’s very family-friendly.
If you are just visiting for a day trip, parents can relax and eat, or simply enjoy nature, while the kids can play around the pool. And that pool has a spectacular and super fast slide for the kids (and parents) to enjoy! My own munchkins couldn’t stop racing down again and again with huge smiles on their faces
Other facilities you can enjoy at Soulshine include a rooftop yoga studio, and beautiful rice fields and organic vegetable garden that you can walk through.
If you are planning to stay a little longer, they have a retreat programs all year round that you can join or create your own a-la-carte retreat experience.
They offer a “mix of mindfulness and absolute fun” during their retreats.
Their signature Soulrocker Retreat by Michael Franti and Sara Franti will include yoga classes, excursions, and also of course, Michael will be keeping the live acoustic jams spontaneously flowing throughout the seven days. Find out when their next retreat is on their website.
The perfect way to escape, while celebrating life, dancing, and connecting with like-minded people.
The option to stay just for a cheeky short getaway is also possible. Soulshine has weekend family getaway events, with amazing activities on the itinerary including a marshmallow roast, garden walk, or rice planting, cooking class, movies under the stars, Sunday brunch, bouncing castle and more!
If you want to host your own retreat at Soulshine Bali, they will help you bring your dream retreat to reality, from helping you choose the activities, classes, and even getting the word out over their social platforms.
So, whether you’re just day tripping to enjoy the delicious organic food, while lounging and swimming in the beautiful spot, or joining or even hosting a retreat, Soulshine Bali has it all.
