Soul Vida was absolutely beautiful, and the perfect de-stress time.
Yin Yoga under the stars was amazing, and the fitness was so unique and honestly, a total killer - my abs were appreciative!!
Denise, the instructors and her staff are all beautiful woman who so are totally in-tune with Bali life and bring that into the retreat. I will be back, no hesitation.
P.s the food is ah-mazing!!

I was seeking a retreat where I could re-charge, be active and indulge whilst being healthy. Soul Vida ticked every box!
The communication with the owner, Denise, was exceptional and the customer service also fantastic. There wasn't anything I could fault with this retreat.
My room was just incredible. It had an amazing view, bed was super comfy and it was sweet to find rose petals on the bed. The villa as a whole is boutique, comfortable yet luxurious and a place that feels like home very quickly.
I opted for the surf yoga package and LOVED it.
My goal was to improve my surfing and with my personal one-on-one surf coach (as the other girls opted for the surf/fitness package) I increased my skill level from beginner to intermediate. So this retreat is great for newbies wanting to learn surfing but also for you surfer girls out there serious about your surfing. This retreat is personalized to what you need.
The food...OMG. It was incredible. So delicious and healthy. The chefs are incredible...wish I could take them home with me to cook three meals a day ;)
Also, the location is great. I really loved Canggu and think it is the best part of Bali to visit as someone that loves to surf but also get to know the locals and what is happening in the area. Plenty of amazing shops to check out. It reminds me of Melbourne a little...very hip and cool but still very much feel like you are in Bali.
What are you waiting for? Book this place...you will love it too!

I loved the retreat at Soul Vida! It is in a remarkably beautiful villa in the middle of the rice paddies, peaceful and quiet but close to everything in Canggu. Everything is done with full heart.
We had Vinasa Yoga in the morning and Yin Yoga in the evening with amazing teachers who are really experienced and inspiring. There are two yoga shalas - one upstairs with a view of the paddies, and another one right next two the pool. We also could attend fitness classes with the lovely teacher Jess. That was so much fun. There were spa treatments in the afternoon where everyone could choose treatments for their specific needs. And the food was healthy and so yummy.
As the groups are small it feels very cosy and personal. The intention of lovely owner, Denise, and the teachers was clearly to make everyone feel at home and at ease. I felt so well looked after, relaxed and far away from everything.
The setting is beautiful (flowers and candles everywhere), the people are super friendly and helpful, the yoga and fitness classes are professional and fun. It is a retreat on a very high level and it just shows you Bali from it’s best side. It has been a wonderful experience!
Definitely recommend and I look forward to returning.

This is the perfect getaway. Every day has a schedule, but you choose yourself what you want to participate in. It was a good balance of training and relaxation, I participated in all the classes and felt great after each day. A typical day starts with a yoga session, led by talented Charlotte while the sun rises. Following is a balanced breakfast, healthy but still a taste explosion. After the breakfast has been digested its time for a fitness session with Jess, a trainer who really knows how to train the female body! The training was different from the "normal" fitness class, with "only" body weight and flexibility work, but it had me sore for days! In the afternoon there are spa treatments, leaving you relaxed and working magically on the soreness from the training. At sunset there is time for Yin Yoga, surrounded by candles and an amazing terrace view. Finishing off the nights with a dinner by excellent chefs together with the rest of the group. The owner of the retreat, Denise, makes you feel so welcome and at home. The villa is absolutely stunning and you´re left feeling a healthier version of yourself (at least how I felt). I will absolutely come back, and I´ll be sure to bring some of my girlfriends next time! I must say going alone was great as well, as we had a great group of girls and I made lots of new acquaintances. I highly recommend this place!
What a wonderful experience this was! Such a relaxing time, meeting people, the staff was very welcoming and helpful, and lots of amazing yoga. Loved it! Thank you so much and I hope to come back soon.
