Bali, INDONESIA

with Dr. Deb Kern

July 7 – 13 OR July 7 – 19, 2019

Join Dr. Deb Kern for 7 days / 6 nights OR 12 days / 11 nights immersed in the healing energies and vibrancy of the Bali. Bali offers a stunning geography of ocean, mountain, volcanos and jungle with an incredibly diversity of wildlife and marine life. The Balinese people are characteristically warm and welcoming with a rich spiritual history.

Book your flight to land at Denpasar international airport and be whisked away to Floating Leaf eco-luxury retreat center for the first 6 nights. We’ve hand chosen this distinct location for it’s privacy (we will be the only guests this week) and for it’s design and location.  Floating Leaf  is set in a small traditional Balinese village amongst verdant rice fields. This secluded location nestled between Sukawati and Pantai Purnama on the eastern shore of Bali puts us far from the traffic, pollution and the crowds of tourists found in Ubud and southern Bali, but we are still conveniently located close to the beach, airport and other key Bali landmarks.

If you choose to add another 6 nights with Deb, this add-on will take you into the heart of Ubud where you’ll stay with at a homestay with Deb and experience Bali with the locals.  Sacred Ceremonies, temples, local healers and more.

Space is limited  – reservations will be open soon.

Vacation Details

Upon your arrival in Denpasar, you’ll be greeted at the airport and whisked away to our little paradise for the first 6 nights.  We’ll nourish ourselves with life-filled organic foods and practice yoga in our open air yoga studio complete with breathtaking views of the rice terraces, coconut trees, and ocean.  We’ll learn about Balinese culture, learn some of their traditions, visit a healing water temple and an artisan village.  A black sands beach is just a 15 minute walk from the property where surfing is possible.  Of course, we encourage you to indulge in the incredible Balinese massage and spa treatments which are offered on site.

Your retreat starts with dinner on July 7th, but we know many flights from the US arrive late at night and some of you may like to arrive a day early.   If you have late night arrival and need an extra night (on the 7th) or would just like to arrive on the 6th to acclimate, we’ve secured a few rooms at Floating Leaf at a very discounted rate for this add-on. Please enquire as quickly as possible with Laura@oneyogaglobal.com if you’d like to add an extra night.

Included in your retreat week is airport pick up on the 7th (or 6th if you’ve booked an extra night) and airport transport back to Denpasar from floating Leaf on the 13th (for those leaving after the first week)

If you are are adding the extra nights with Deb on the back end, your hosts on site will assist if you need to secire transportation to your departing flight.

Do I need a visa to visit Bali?
Yes, depending on your nationality, you may need to apply for a visa in advance, or you may be eligible for a visa on arrival. For US citizens, you may be required to pay for a $35 visa upon arrival (or you may not!) The customs officers do accept other currencies and credit cards. Make sure that you have a passport valid for at least 6 months from the arrival date or you will be turned away from your departing city.  You must also have proof of a return ticket. Visa regulations have been changing in Bali for almost a decade, so it is recommended that you check with your consulate for the most up-to-date information.

What airport do I fly into?
Denpasar Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS) is the international airpot you will be flying into. Remember you can lose up to two days with the time change and flight time, so double check your arrival date and retreat start date.

How do I get from Denpasar to Floating Leaf?
We will arrange transportation for group members arriving on the start and end date of the retreat. (For those arriving one day early, we will still provide this pick up) Expect a survey to collect your travel details. Upon exiting the airport, a trusted driver will meet you with a Floating Leaf sign.

What is the electrical currency/outlet in Bali?
Bali electricity runs at 220V and uses the European plug (two round pins). Adapters will be necessary if you are bringing any electrical items.

MORE FAQ's

Do I need any vaccines?
Traveling outside of you home country can expose you to bugs your body might not be used to. The odd case of “bali belly” (diarrhea) is not uncommon. Packing an anti-diarrheal can put you at ease. It’s always nice to check in with your family doctor or local travel clinic if you need any information on vaccines or medications to bring with you. We’ve got some great pharmacies (“Apotek” in Indonesian).

Is there internet access on property?
Floating Leaf  offers free wi-fi throughout the property. While we know its important to stay connected with friends and love ones, sometimes the unexpected storm can slow down or cut out the internet temporarily.

What will the weather be like?
Because it is located near the equator, Bali tends to have fairly stable weather with the “wet” season occurring between November and March and the ‘dry’ season between May and September. It is generally always warm with temperatures hovering in the mid-to high-80s and up.

What should I pack?
We recommend light clothing that breathes but can also protect you from the sun. Being near the equator, the Balinese sun is hot and you can burn much faster than what you might be used to. Sleeves or a light jacket is also helpful in the evenings if you decide to take a scooter ride. W

What is the currency?
The currency here is called Rupiah. You can bring your own currency over and convert it, or use ATM machines to withdraw Indonesian currency. ATM withdrawal fees vary bank to bank, so make sure you check in with yours to get all the info. Many restaurants and stores take credit cards. Don’t forget to let your bank or credit card company know you are traveling!
