APSWC Bali Study Tour

22 – 27 October 2018

You can feel the irresistible healing magic the moment you arrive on the island of Bali. Is it the welcoming and tranquil Balinese living their beautiful culture of daily rituals according to spiritual beliefs? The stunning countryside of volcanoes, rice paddies, jungle and beaches? Or maybe the sheer number of spas, retreats, yoga studios, alternative healers and plant-based cafes?

Find out on the Asia Pacific Spa & Wellness Coalition’s Bali Study Tour!

We will take you on an insider’s journey through the culture, cuisine, community, countryside and spirituality of this incredible Indonesian island. An initiative of the APSWC, put together by Bali residents with the cooperation of the Bali Spa & Wellness Association, we will visit many of Bali’s spa and wellness pioneers, meet some of her healers and industry entrepreneurs, experience temple water ceremonies, fire ceremonies, morning yoga and meditation, and of course eat at some of her most innovative restaurants.

Bali is a land that has a magnet at its very heart. It is a feeling that is difficult to understand unless experienced, but once visited you will be compelled to return, and you may even want to stay forever.


While every effort is made to provide the tour as per the dates, venues and inclusions stated, we reserve the right to amend the itinerary without notice or to cancel an event for any reason, without liability to the APSWC board, members or assignees.


Incoming transfers from the airport to the hotel will be under individual arrangement and cost. Three complimentary shuttles will be provided on the 27th, times to be confirmed.
