I was surprised with how much Ubud had to offer in such a small town. I didn't realize that there was a myriad of things to do including waterfalls, monkey forests, and hiking.
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.
It’s a miracle that I made it to the top of Mount Batur as it was the most brutal hike I have ever encountered. With the help of my fellow retreaters and my hiking tour guide, I was able to make this incredible hike.
Bali wasn't originally on my list to visit this year, but after going through a series of bad events earlier in the year, I needed some kind of spiritual trip and found a perfect yoga retreat at Soulshine Bali. This was exactly what I needed.
