What our ladies on retreat have been saying.

“I wanted the comfort of the organising being done for me. After communications before tour feeling comfortable that I had done the right thing in booking with you. On tour felt happy to go with the flow. Never feeling like I had pressure to join in. Easy and relaxing. It absolutely delivered for me.”

“You definitely delivered and exceeded my expectations. It was my last holiday overseas and I still talk about it. I felt renewed, inspired and the culture fed my soul. The group of girls were fun and friendly. Gina is Amazing and puts her heart & soul into the whole trip. With her attention to detail and generosity throughout the trip. Down to earth and always listening and full of so much knowledge about the culture of the people and so much more. There is passion and adventure in her spirit that shine through when you spend time together. I would love to go & explore another country with Gina as I know it will be an amazing experience- no questions I am there!

“Gina is an amazing person with a beautiful heart. Her love of Bali really shone through on this trip! Her attention to detail and including a range of activities, from E biking to temple blessings, to the perfect amount of down time, is what made the Bali Bliss Retreat a holiday I will cherish always. Her down to earth vibe attracts like minded souls, and our group bonded seamlessly. Thank you for being part of my first solo travel experience”
