PRAVASSA'S JOURNEY INTO WELLNESS: BALI
We invite you to explore a specially curated 10-day wellness vacation experience that starts with the fundamentals of wellness. From the moment you touch down in Indonesia, your senses and curiosity will be ignited, from the sweet air scented with frangipani, clove, and coffee to the locals who will embrace you with kindness.
Pravassa is proud to have built lasting relationships with hotels and resorts which support the communities we visit and foster the concept of Fair Travel. Our handpicked, personally vetted accommodations showcase the best that each of our locations has to offer and ensure a curated and comfortable experience that supports your wellness journey at every step. During our Journey into Wellness: Bali tour, we’ll enjoy staying at intimate, locally run boutique properties where we can be fully immersed in the natural beauty of Bali while still allowing for the comforts of luxury travel.
Amenities include: indoor/outdoor living, locally sourced building materials, traditional Balinese cuisine made with local ingredients and award-winning spas.
Pravassa has cultivated a global network of expert wellness practitioners, one of the many things that makes Pravassa unlike any other travel company. In Bali you’ll be in good hands with Pravassa founder and wellness travel expert Linden Schaffer, who has been leading trips to Bali for nearly a decade. Our local wellness guides include Balinese healers and mindfulness experts like Leah Santa Cruz, as well as yoga instructors and local guides eager to share the intimate details of their community, offering a deeper layer of immersive travel at every step of the journey.
This magical ceremonial New Year’s celebration takes place over two days in Bali. Lauded as a way to keep balance between man and nature, wisdom and tolerance, even Hinduism and Buddhism, Nyepi is meant to cleanse both the mind and the island of negative spirits for the coming year. The day before the silent day, the local villages hold large exorcism ceremonies on the main roads where Ogoh-Ogoh (papier-mâché monsters) are paraded through town. The following day is observed in total silence. No cars, no planes, no electricity, no talking, no leaving your home. This sacred time is spent in meditation; a day that gives you the chance to be cleansed and start anew.

Upon landing, you’ll be greeted at Denpasar airport with an Om Swastiastu, the traditional Balinese greeting, and a welcoming smile from our local guide. From here, the group will be escorted to a waiting car for the drive to our first boutique hotel. Enjoy a Pravassa exclusive welcome ceremony — an offering of protection over your well-being and journey — conducted by the local priest and followed by our curated wellness dinner.
