The sagitta Wellness Retreat
So many of our guests at Villa Sagitta say the same thing: “It’s so beautiful, so calm, so tranquil, so quintessentially Balinese – you should offer retreats!”
While one thing Bali does not lack is retreats, we’ve put together an offering which we think meets an unfulfilled need in the Balinese wellness retreat market. Our retreats are aimed at people who want rest and recreation and to return home healthier and calmer, having had a break from their real life. However, they don't want such a 'hard core' retreat that a cocktail is out the question. As such we have organised a package that includes things like daily yoga (from beginner to advanced levels - you can choose) and daily massages, as well as healthy foods and drinks. But there is also more than enough time to shop, take in some sights and relax by the pool as well.
Why a Villa Sagitta retreat?
Villa Sagitta epitomises spiritual Bali, celebrating the lush natural beauty of the earth in which the Balinese ground themselves. It’s set on a magnificent gorge, near the temple where local villagers go about their daily rituals set by the rhythm of a culture that is thousands of years old.
We sweat the small stuff to make your stay memorable – branded amenities, a nightly turn down service, and a willing, friendly and responsive villa team.
Sagitta now offers the benefits of a retreat, encompassing the yoga, massages and healthy fresh food you would expect, but at the same time also provides a relaxed, flexible approach for you and your group of friends or partners.
We provide daily red and green juices, healthy fresh meals and invite you to greet the sun on the yoga deck, but you get to choose your level of commitment to the wellness regimen, and to the day’s activities. It’s your retreat, and we want you to leave this very special place well rested and relaxed with a sense of wellbeing.
Our Sagitta-style wellness philosophy:
Flexibility in your schedule is key – you tell us what time you would like your breakfast, massage or your group yoga class - it’s your break after all!
Downtime is non-negotiable – that book has been waiting for a good holiday for ages!
You are on vacation, not at bootcamp – so yes, that glass of wine is available if you want it!
Who would benefit?
Anyone wanting a relaxed, stress-free wellness getaway, with all the benefits of a retreat offered in-house. You never have to leave the villa if you don’t want to…
The joy of our retreat packages is that they are completely non-prescriptive. The days will go with your flow, suiting your group’s needs, abilities and ages on the fly – when you want to eat, when you want to do group yoga, have a massage or go on a day outing will be entirely up to you.

Second daily meal
You can choose a second daily meal at the villa, either lunch or dinner as a group. We have a simple but comprehensive menu which includes a delicious selection of Balinese and Western dishes – you can choose a variety of dishes for the table or everybody can order their own dish.
This buffet-style evening feast is a highlight of our guests’ stays. It has a wide variety of Balinese food – just delicious.

The food at the villa can’t be overstated - we had beautifully prepared Balinese dishes and western food alike all served with all the little touches you’ve come to expect from fine dining establishments.

Highlights include the ayam curry which was incredibly fine and good ... but also the nasi and the mie goreng, and finally the last evening the buffet with multiple dishes all as good as each other!
