The sagitta Wellness Retreat
So many of our guests at 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, to return home healthier and calmer having had a break from their real life. Those who want wellness but not to the exclusion of a good cocktail, yoga (you might even be a true beginner) but not in an intimidating environment - with a lot of downtime, massages and a couple of sights thrown in.
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 key – that book has been waiting for ages for a good holiday!
You are on vacation, not at bootcamp – so yes, that cocktail is available!
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.
WHAT WE INCLUDE IN THE PRICE:
7 nights’ accommodation at Villa Sagitta.
Two vehicles providing a transfer and from the airport (in case not everybody arrives on the same flight), in other words, four trips in total during your stay.
Six sessions of group yoga on our purpose-built outdoor, undercover yoga deck with ironwood flooring, with spectacular views over the river gorge and the ancient village temple. You’d have to search long and hard to find a deck with a similar view on the island – breathtaking!
The yoga sessions include:
A qualified yoga teacher who can teach different disciplines at different levels as required
Yoga equipment such as blocks, straps etc
Breakfast includes tropical fruit grown at the villa, healthy green and red juices (some of the best on the island in our opinion), muesli, yoghurt (and other options too – a cooked breakfast and a delicious banana pancake).
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.
This is what some of our previous guests have had to say about the food at Villa Sagitta:
The food at the villa can’t be understated - 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!

In addition, we offer a cooked component if you would like it – your choice of eggs (fried, poached, scrambled or omelette), bacon, toast or a banana pancake.

Not at all. Our driver and car is available to transport members of your group wherever they would like to go. If others want to stay at the villa during that time that’s perfectly fine too.
