Soulshine Bali - A Little Piece of Paradise

Hi! We’re Candy and Crystal. We’re sisters who grew up as military brats and spent the first half of our lives in Japan. The majority of our family resides in Japan, but we ventured out and have spent the second half of our lives mainly in the United States. We both love traveling and have always documented our travels, so we decided it was time to share our travel experiences with the rest of the world.

Soulshine Bali is located in Ubud and it is the perfect little paradise where you can truly unwind and feel at peace. The resort is located literally in the middle of the rice fields and the Ayung river flows right next to it where the locals bathe and wash their laundry. The entrance is gorgeous in itself with bamboo trees and a pathway leading to the main building with positive messages.

The resort mainly hosts retreats and I found an amazing yoga retreat led by Soul Searchers. I was immediately interested in this retreat as it offered everything I wanted and more:

7 nights at Soulshine Bali | 2 yoga classes per day | airport transfer  | 1 onsite massage | daily breakfast buffet | 2 group dinners (onsite) | access to mats and props | 24-hour coffee and tea making facilities | free flow filtered water | all taxes and services | cultural dinner off site

THE PROPERTY

I was blown away by the beauty of this place. Everything was so clean and colorful with words of peace and inspiration engraved on the grounds. You truly felt like you were in a world of zen and this is just what I needed.

There are two buildings on the property: Lotus which has 7 double occupancy rooms and 1 single room with shared bathrooms; and Terrace which has 5 premium double occupancy rooms with ensuite bathrooms. This building also houses the lobby, open air yoga studio and massage room. The cafe and pool is located right next to it.

The property accommodates up to 25 people, so it was a very intimate retreat. There were only 15 of us and we had the whole place to ourselves!
