Thank you Veronica, for my personalised yoga retreat - the classes were just what I needed, as was the time to slow down and reflect. I learnt new things, took away techniques that I'm using daily, the venue was just perfect, as was your attention to detail and I really enjoyed spending time with you and your colleagues and sharing laughter and friendship.

Era mi primer viaje sola, quería ir "a lejos".
Buscaba un destino, buscaba una forma... Me topé con Bali. El nombre ya era lo bastante exótico como para sentir que me iba lejos de casa y el programa parecía fantástico, yoga, surf, ayurveda...
Pocas expectativas, que me sorprendiera el mundo, El único objetivo era hacer lo que sintiera el alma en cada momento
Y llegamos a Bali, un grupo de felices mujeres con ganas de vacaciones tras largas horas por los cielos del Planeta.
Han sido unos días llenos de imágenes, de colores, de olores, de sabores, de felices sonrisas que te llegan al corazón.
Solo tengo palabras de agradecimiento para Verónica y su equipo que en todo momento estuvieron atentas a las necesidades del grupo, abiertas a cualquier cambio y compartiendo su vida diaria en la isla con nosotras, haciéndonos sentir que "Balilovale" y que, con humor la vida es más bella todavía.
Gracias por hacer de mi particular búsqueda viajera, un fácil encuentro conmigo misma y con la vida en su máximo esplendor.

Fui a Bali buscando armonía, buscando la fuerza que hacía tiempo se había escondido dentro de mí, mi propia energía que estaba sepultada debajo de capas de tristeza y de estrés. Verónica Barcala, mi guía para este viaje, organizó una experiencia a mi medida. Me preparó un programa detox combinado con yoga, meditación y con una serie de visitas purificadoras a varios templos y cascadas de la isla.

Uno de los momentos más inolvidables fue la visita al templo de las aguas sagradas donde, siguiendo el rito balinés, mis hijas, Verónica y yo vestidas con el sarón dorado les llevamos ofrendas a los dioses para que nos limpiaran el alma. Bajamos las escaleras de piedra volcánica en silencio rodeadas de bambú y de manantiales hasta la primera parada donde nos lavamos los pies, la cara y la nuca. Después, en la segunda hicimos las ofrendas y meditamos un rato. Y finalmente, nos metimos en un arroyo formado por dos cascadas que manaban de la roca. Al meter la cabeza en el primer chorro de agua yo dejé allí los malos ratos pasados, las malas memorias y toda la energía negativa acumulada durante años a fuerza de gritos. Siguiendo el ritual, pasé a la segunda cascada donde pegué mi espalda en la roca y mirando hacia delante sentí que me comunicaba con una fuerza espiritual purificadora inmensa que me abría un nuevo horizonte y entre la música del agua escuché la risa de mi padre.

Desde entonces me siento muy bien. Encontré la paz que anhelaba.
Gracias Verónica por ser la mejor guía del mundo mundial!

Veronica was a pleasure to work with and a total pro! We brought our group of 30 adventurers to Bali and she was amazing at understanding and translating our mission and what we wanted to experience. Every hotel, site and excursion were beyond our expectations. She is a very skilled planner, communicator and listener. I highly recommend working with Veronica.

I wanted to thank you for your fantastic organization, your commitment and your good work. It was an experience unforgettable. You made us feel at home and I felt a very much appreciated security in a country completely unknown to me. Your great knowledge of the island, its customs, its values, its people, etc.. has provided a great added value to our trip.

It is written here that if I return to Bali, or someone around me decides to travel to "your island", I will recommend you with great peace and security that everything will be perfect.

Firstly thank you for your kindness to the group and the attention you have given us all the time, as well as for your interest to get us closer to a culture so different from ours. Also, let you know that is a plus that you speak English, Spanish and Indonesian. I think it was very good for the group so everyone could understand as at the same time local Balinese people was closer and more open to us.

As for the organization, I think you have everything well organized : transfers , hotels, activities , meals, ...
You had a great capacity to adapt , listening and accepting our proposals while maintaining the overall structure of the itinerary that you had scheduled.

The hotels are excellent from my point of view, the retreat centre is great for people who want to devote to meditation, yoga, do some retirement, ... because it is located in a privileged place where you easy contact with yourself. The friendliness of the workers and the interest shown in wanting to help, is much appreciated. The cottages are very comfortable and the food is very good.The traditional resort in Candidasa is a very nice hotel. Workers are also very friendly, and the food is fine. (...)

Mother Temple is spectacular, and I liked having the volcano view worth seeing.

Finally, would like to mention that Chayanne is the ideal conductor for the trip we took. He knows a lot about the island, speaks Spanish and has a great sense of humor. He has been always watching us and helped us in everything.

I want to express my great satisfaction with the services provided to our company. They helped us to organize a spiritual and educational event attended by 54 participants from China. I found the staff very professional, hardworking, attentive and easy to communicate with. I would recommend to any company that needs assistance in organizing events in the beautiful island of Bali, to use their services. With their hard work they have earned my trust and appreciation.

Using Essential Retreat Organizer to be our "on the ground" contact in Bali gave us a huge advantage to be able to find the right venue, at the right time, for the right price. There is no way we could have done it without them. All while working with them, we knew they were acting in our best interest, and being a true business partner and friend. We highly recommend them for their services for your retreat, training, or program in Bali.

EarthQuest Institute

Vanessa Jean Boscarello Ovens, Perth - Australia

As a company that puts on multiple personal development and meditation seminars every year, we decided we wanted to try something a little different and combine our transformational coursework with a customized tour to an exotic, spiritually-rich destination. The beautiful island of Bali called to us, so we got to work with the arrangements and before we knew it had 25 people signed up. (.....), within two weeks, had all of the accommodations confirmed at absolutely stunning resort centers featuring warm and professional staff and true wellness-oriented environments at very affordable prices.
(...) we also had a lovely itinerary with various cultural excursions planned, morning yoga sessions, massages and more,(...) We, the organizers, had never been to Bali before and were taking a large and diverse group of travelers to a third-world country, and were delighted with how everything turned out. The participants, too, were more than pleased - almost half signed up on the spot for our next destination event a year from then, which, if you're familiar with the seminar industry, is quite the conversation rate!

I would be very happy in recommending your services in future to anyone needing similiar guidance as myself. I really enjoyed the Spiritual Healing Week , my accommodation at the Spiritual Mountain Retreat in East Bali and the program in place for the week. The staff they have are really nice and helpful. So wonderful suggestion. Any future return trip would probably see me return there and to the East Coast. Thank you for your gift and time.
