Finding Health and Wellness in Paradise with The Floating Leaf

Located just an hour north of the hustle and bustle of tourist-trap Kuta, lies an oasis on the eastern coast of the island of Bali.  The Floating Leaf Eco-Retreat was exactly the type of property we imagined sharing with our readers as we set out on our global excursion highlighting some of the best and must unique health and wellness resorts around the globe.

Situated among a serene backdrop of rice fields and distant volcanos, the Floating Leaf is the perfect jumping off point for your personal wellness retreat.  Offering a wide variety of packages for the wellness traveler, the Floating Leaf provides abundant opportunity for all budget levels.  Though programs vary, there remains a strong yoga-based focus throughout.  Along with diverse dining options featuring organic produce from their garden situated mere steps from the property, the Floating Leaf puts you in a perfect position to rejuvenate your body and mind.  With each package featuring 1-on-1 daily appointments with wellness professionals, you really do get the 360-degree, all-around wellness treatment.

And unlike the large corporate resorts, the Floating Leaf maintains a smaller property which lends to great personalization and extremely attentive service from a wonderful staff and gracious owners, Mikaku and Putu.

As if that’ s not enough, the Floating Leaf is incredibly green – featuring local, renewable materials throughout the property.  Noting their attention to detail, even the in-room iPhone speakers are completely constructed of Balinese bamboo.  Along with their earth-conscious attitude, the Floating Leaf is keen to give back to the local communities.  Selling various art work, specialty teas, and running charity drives are just a few ways the Floating Leaf gives back to the local people who have welcomed them into their land.

Unlike other wellness retreats, the Floating Leaf is not just for the wellness traveler.  The Floating Leaf welcomes third-party groups to come in and make full use of their property.  Any yogi or other fitness professional thinking about leading a tropical group-excursion should carefully check out this property.  Lead your own program, on your own terms, with the Floating Leaf serving as your backdrop.

Comfort was not spared as each room was perfectly crafted with luxury in mind.  We slept quite soundly surrounded by fresh flowers, local artwork, and a comfy bed.

Making our through the three-story property, we can’t help but feel like we’re in some sort of luxury tree house mansion…

Speaking of that yoga room…

Perhaps the best part of the Floating Leaf Eco-Retreat was their dedication to the health and wellness of their guests.  Unlike other retreats, the Floating Leaf maintains a community of sorts for all those who have returned home.  This gives the ability to continually connect with the same wellness professionals you visited during your stay at the retreat.  Additionally, the retreat provides plenty of easy-to-follow recipes using more domestic ingredients to ensure your healthy eating habits continue well after your stay has ended.

The Floating Leaf Eco-Retreat provided us an experience like few others have to date.  Whether you’re an individual looking for an all-inclusive and personalized wellness experience, or a professional looking to lead your own retreat in the perfect place, the Floating Leaf is the place for you.
