Soulshine, Ubud - your home for the week
The resort is located just outside the town of Ubud, in central Bali, approximately 90 minutes drive from Denpasar airport. Soulshine Bali was founded in 2011 by two friends, Michael Franti and Carla Swanson, who's shared love of Balinese culture inspired them to design a place where others could come and enjoy the magic of this beautiful island.
The boutique resort is an elegant mix of traditional Balinese and clean modern design. Nestled along a bubbling river and surrounded by rice terraces, the property blends with the curves of the landscape, and the gardens highlight the beauty of the tropical land. The chic air conditioned rooms are accented with hand carved artefacts and all the amenities required to make your stay comfortable and memorable.
There are two accommodation buildings on the property: the Terrace Villa has 5 premium double occupancy rooms; the Lotus Villa has 7 double occupancy rooms and 1 single room. All rooms have their own private bathrooms.
Please visit the Soulshine website for images and descriptions of each room to help you choose the best option for your stay.

Getting to Bali
Air fares are not included in your package cost. You can book your flights online (Webjet, Expedia, Skyscanner), directly with the airline, or visit a local travel agent who will help you choose the most suitable flight. Here's some information to help you with your planning:
Jetstar, Virgin (Tiger)*, Garuda, and Air Asia fly directly to Denpasar Airport (Bali) from Melbourne. Please be aware that low cost airlines will charge you for each service you use (i.e. choosing your seat, baggage, meals and entertainment options on board). If you prefer a 'full service' airline, Garuda will offer these items without additional charges.
Virgin (Tiger)*: Virgin has recently reduced their direct services from Melbourne to Bali, replacing this with their low cost carrier, Tiger. Virgin has rebranded their planes to Tiger, however essentially it is the same airline, with Virgin Australia pilots. The full service is no longer provided, however this is a good low cost option to consider.
Suggested flights to book for the retreat
Our retreat will begin on Sunday 12 June at 5pm and finish on Sunday 19 June at midday. If you are able to arrive into Bali by early afternoon on Sunday 12 June, this will coincide nicely with one of our airport transfers, and will give you plenty of time to settle in and explore the resort.
Most airlines offer a morning flight to Denpasar Bali departing at approximately 9 / 10am and arriving into Bali at approximately 1pm. Airport transfers will be arranged for you to Ubud. We'll ask you for your flight details closer to the retreat date so we can coordinate the transfers.
Arriving earlier than Sunday 12 June? Great idea! We'll be in contact with you prior to the retreat to confirm the transfer departure point to Ubud. You'll need to make your way to that location (to be confirmed but it will be a central location not far from the airport you can reach easily by taxi).
Return flights: most airlines offer a late evening flight to Melbourne so you can make the most of your last day in Bali. Please note that late checkout from the resort cannot be guaranteed, however you will be able to store your luggage prior to your airport transfer departure to the airport.
Extending your stay in Bali? And why not we say! If you're heading down to Seminyak or surrounding areas we'll arrange for your transfer from Ubud as close as possible to your next location.
Once we've received your accommodation request we'll contact you with a link to our booking form. Follow that link, complete your details, pay your 20% deposit and start planning your trip to Bali!
