Essence: the core nature or most important qualities of a person or thing; intrinsic, fundamental; true substance; the inward nature of anything, underlying its manifestations.

Is your soul craving a reset? Do you desire deep relaxation? Undivided attention? Play time and renewed inspiration? Come HOME, to the Essence of your Spirit. 

Strip off your worldly limitations and step into the raw, divine nature of your Spirit. Lavish yourself in the sacred landscape of Bali, as we awaken our senses, and nourish our souls with potent spiritual practices, organic cuisine, and luxurious accommodations at the stunning Udaya Resort & Spa.

Join Yoga Teacher Elli Yokochi and Drishti Journeys owner Reinier Voorwinde (a.k.a. DJ Drishti) as we co-create this sacred space for connection, expression, and embodiment of the creative life-force animating your being. Clear obstacles and move into the flow with daily movement classes including; vinyasa, yin, and conscious dance to live beats from DJ Drishti. Experience a full moon ceremony, powerful breath and meditation practices, metaphysical teachings, and incredible excursions including; a monkey forest visit, water purification ceremony, Balinese cooking class, bike ride through rice fields, and visiting local schools. Come away feeling deeply alive, empowered, and liberated. This will be an unforgettable adventure of a lifetime, and would not be a Drishti Journey without a solid dose of FUN!

This epic, life-changing retreat, is designed for YOU, magical souls, who are ready to dive deep to the core of your being, feel ecstatically alive, align with your heart, and experience the radiant Essence of your Spirit.



Deep at the heart of Bali, Ubud is a lush span of green landscape with terraced hills and paddy fields. The sparkling water of the Ayung River strings together numerous waterfalls waiting for you to discover. This verdant charm is quite different to the bustle of Kuta or Seminyak. Ubud has long been a favorite destination for travelers in search of serenity. Here, you may renew your bond with nature in the purest and most intimate sense.

To present you this unique side of Bali, The Udaya Resorts & Spa welcomes you to the centre of Ubud area. The premise is only five minutes from Ubud Central and equipped with all the accommodations to ensure your comfort and relaxation. Enjoy our infinity pool as you ponder upon Ubud's greeneries. We also emphasize upon traditional Balinese elements as our main theme in architecture and esthetics.
