Hello Journalist,

Our Privileged Journalist Stay for 5 nights

After approving your proposal, we would be delighted to host you for both accommodations and day pass for your media review. We prefer you stay 5 nights to fully experience the special  energy here, as well as, the various events ranging from Yoga, Water Meditation, Labyrinth Walking Meditation to Balinese Culture to Sustainable Off-the-Grid Living and internationally acclaimed fresh organic cuisine.

First let Robyn, our Media Coordinator, know your intentions, the name of your publication, and the approval of your editor. Her email is media@balisilentretreat.com.  After she approves your proposal, then it’s best that you make your own booking with your own preferred dates.

We recommend checking in on a Sunday and checking out on a Friday. Note:  all interviews are done via email questions, as our co-founders are frequently traveling. Send interview questions to Nadia.

Availability changes every hour, so bookings need to be done online, to see the current availability for whatever room-type you prefer and also get a confirmation email with important information. i.e, transport, time to arrive, visa info, etc. Select whichever room you prefer. Room can be changed for your second night, to get a sense of the different experience. Single Room Upper is most popular for the price. Private bungalows are good for those who wanting extra privacy.

 

Prior to visiting, we would like to invite you to peruse our website at www.balisilentretreat.com to get info on our history, green-to-extreme philosophy and various program information including the Agnihotra Fire Ceremony, New Earth Discussions, and Balinese Culture lecture, rice terrace hike and garden tour.

We add new guest comments to our web site, monthly. It’s worth a quick read, as they seem to ‘say it all’.

We’re happy to provide High Resolution photos that you may use in your publication. Please click here to download the photos.

Please credit the photo appropriately to © Bali Silent Retreat

After Publication, we will add your article to our Media Resource page, which will also feature the author, so reciprocal web traffic goes to you.

We are looking forward to hosting you and sharing the amazing experience of Bali Silent Retreat.

Blessings,
Nadia Bintoro
Media Team of Bali Silent Retreat
