Not Just Another Retreat Venue
Your choice of venue is the most important retreat planning decision you will make. It is vital that your venue partner is not only the right fit for your retreat, but also there to support the process.
Let us help you create the perfectly natural & naturally perfect retreat experience.
Tucked away in a remote village, at the water’s edge beneath the mountains, far from the hustle and bustle of Ubud and the South, one can cleanse the soul by the ocean, a symbol of purity, within the protection of the ridge of mountains that stand to represent man’s connection to the gods, an integral part of the Tri Hita Karana, Bali’s fundamental philosophy of the three components to a balanced, harmonized life; the connection among people, the connection with nature and the connection with the spiritual.
Poinciana Seaside Resort and Retreat Centre is not just a retreat venue, it’s an embodiment of this philosophy whereby we strive to not only host your retreat, but enhance the experience by providing a sanctuary for people to meet, share experiences and learn, nourishing our guests with the best of Bali’s fresh, natural ingredients, while helping the retreat leaders choose and organize activities that reinforce and support their workshop goals.
Poinciana Seaside Resort and Retreat Centre is located in the regency of Tejakula, on the north east coast of Bali. North Bali is dotted with idyllic, quiet seaside villages that offer the serenity of a true retreat destination. Unlike many other parts of Bali, the North Coast remains relatively untouched by tourism and Western influence.
Far from the hustle and bustle of the South and Ubud, the beaches of North Bali, that range from white to volcanic black sand, are home to some of the best fishing, diving and snorkeling spots on the island. From secret waterfalls to the oldest temples, this little explored part of the island offers some fantastic hidden gems not written about in any guide books.
On an island that has become a retreat mecca, it can be difficult to set your retreat apart from all the others. North Bali has activities to offer that you won’t and anywhere else on the island, as well as Balinese cultural activities to gain a better understanding and deeper insight into a society whose rituals and ceremonies have remained unchanged for hundreds of years. It’s the ideal environment in which to connect with each other, with nature and with spirituality. Om Santi Santi Santi Om.
We have several workshop spaces, both air conditioned and open-air, as well as terraces perfect for doing early morning or sunset yoga and group activities. Our intimate setting provides an excellent atmosphere that fosters communication and positive group dynamics. It’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting for a retreat than the lush gardens of Poinciana on the shores of the Bali Sea. Poinciana’s event coordinator can help you arrange whatever you need and assist you with pre-planning your event and will be on hand during your event to make sure everything goes according to specifications. It’s the peace of mind knowing that at Poinciana, you and your participants will be well taken care of.
When it comes to retreats, regardless of how beautiful the setting, how intriguing the workshops or how comfortable your accommodation, if the food isn’t good, that is what people will remember! Our customized group retreat menu has been specifically designed to not only be nutritionally balanced, but one of the highlights of your event. Our retreat menu is available for both vegetarian and non-vegetarian preferences. We also have a number of raw food items available to add to your retreat menu and can cater to special dietary requirements.
Ra Healing Foods … Anciently it was understood that the physical body was in fact a living temple, literally the home or abode of the Spirit (God/Goddess) within, and therefore, only foods of the highest vibration should be allowed to enter the temple. Our Ra Healing Food recipes are based on this ancient philosophy and the wisdom of the SWNYT (ancient lady healers of Egypt) who understood that in order to be long lived and disease free, we should eat a Ra Food diet, Ra meaning Sun. They knew that by eating a whole food diet of fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds and legumes grown in the temperate zone a person was living in.
In the season they naturally came forth and drinking/eating the milk, cheese, yogurt and ferments made from the milks of all of the beasts that were put on Mother Earth to provide us with the light/pure intelligence and nutrition via their milk, the people would be getting the highest nutritional value from these foods and in fact, the nutritional components would circulate in the blood for one whole year until that food came forth again the following year.
Our “Ra Food” (raw and cooked vegetarian) will delight the strictest of vegetarians and vegans alike. If you thought vegetarian food was boring… well, think again! Our menu is sure to delight the taste-buds and our dessert menu, well that is literally to die for! Delicious, guilt free raw sensations that nourish both – body and soul!
