A few months ago I finally decided to take some time for myself after a very stressful year. It seemed logical to spend it on a journey. After years of adventurous trips this time I wanted something new and different. The two-weeks Zen Zone Anti-stress program at Siddhalepa in Sri Lanka caught my eyes. Before traveling I was a bit worried that daily massages and other self-indulgences would made me bored. But what I experienced was indescribable ... Two weeks of divine program ... The day began with yoga (this was my first contact with this kind of exercise), continued with delicious ayurvedic meals on the shore of the ocean (yes, healthy can be tasty :) and with three hours and half of various massages, herbal baths, inhalations, drinking elixirs, meditation, everything in the company of a very pleasant staff. In the afternoon I walked along sandy beaches and visited nearby villages and towns. All the senses have enjoyed the best of these two weeks! If somebody told me that I could put my body in such a relaxed state, I would never believe it. I made contact with myself again and felt inner peace, which I lacked so much in my stressful life. I returned home happier, relaxed, full of positive energy and, as some peopled said, even younger! Zen Zone Travel is certainly something I recommend to everyone, regardless of the way of traveling you are used to. If you want to invest in yourself and your health and free yourself from stress, this is the journey you are looking for. I hope that next year I will be able to afford such disconnection again. India will probably be my next destination to try out Indian Ayurveda.

This year I decided to take a break in the autumn. By chance, I ran into the Zen Zone website and photos of Bagus Jati in Bali. I wanted to experience Asia on my own skin for quite some time already and when I saw those photos, I knew the destination of my next holiday. Given that I decided very quickly about Bali, the decision was so much easier because there was no need for vaccination. Arriving at Bagus Jati was fantastic! It’s a whole new world. This really is a place to calm down your body and spirit. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I spoiled my taste buds with pure organic food. The green color of all the vegetation around the resort overwhelmed me. I enjoyed the smells and diversity of colors and shapes of flowers. The day began with a morning yoga, continued with a rich breakfast, water aerobics, daily massages and concluded with a relaxing meditation. I recommend vacation at Bagus Jatis to everyone. I came home with the desire to return back there as soon as possible.

I became interested in Zen Zone especially because of their vast offer of relaxation in a peaceful natural environment and quality accommodation together with the possibility of sport and relaxing activities. I attended the Yoga Retreat in Tuscany. I was impressed by the location, accommodation and the choice of activities. Daily Yoga Course was suitable for beginners (like me) and for more experienced. In addition to yoga other activities (core exercises, hiking on beautiful Tuscan hills, visits of local wine cellar with wine tasting, fitness and swimming pool) were also offered every day. The emphasis of this retreat is on active relaxation, disconnection from everyday life and healthy yet very tasty local food (the resort leaders are happy to share recipes!). Morning yoga with a view of Tuscan olive groves and vineyards will remain in my memory for a long time and so will the charming villages where my worries were just blown away by a warm breeze. The afternoon walks around surrounding hills which were concluded with a glass of excellent Tuscan wine were superb. A real treat for your soul!

Zimski pobeg na tolpo je pri meni postal že skoraj stalnica in nekaj kar si moram privoščiti, da je potem čakanje na poletne mesece krajše, slajše in bolj zrelaksirano. Letos je padla odločitev, da se odpravim na Bali. Čeprav ozirma prav zato, ker je februarja nižja sezona, manj turizma pa kljub temu poletne temperature, pa še Bali bom imela za sebe. :) S prijateljico sva se odločili, da začneva najino tri tedensko dopustovanje na Baliju z enotedneskim razvajanjem v organizaciji Zen Zone v Bagus Jati resortu. Za to destinacijo sva se odločili predvsem zaradi odličnega programa, ki super kombinira yogo ter aryuvedske tretmaje in ker sva si zaželeli enotedneski odklop/počitek od vsega. Točno to in še več sva v Bagusu tudi dobili. Zaposleni so izjemno prijazni, hrana, ki je večinoma pridelana na njihovem organskem vrtu, je božanska, tretmaji in spa je točno to kar potrebuješ za popolno sprostitev. Nobene gneče, tišina, mir, privatni bungalovčki, nobenega prometa, krasen bazen in čudovita zelena okolica, vse to in še več sva doživeli v Bagusu. Glede na to da sem prvič potovala z agencijo in ne v lastni režiji sem navdušena. Program v Bagus Jatiju priporočam vsem, ki si želijo razvajati telo in duha, uživajo v dobri hrani in si zaželijo malo sprostitve in umirjenosti. Ob enem pa bi se rada zahvalila Neji iz Zen Zona za odlično organizacijo in vse napotke, ki jih je delila z nama. Super je bilo in definitivno kmalu ponovim, če ne na Bali pa z veseljem kam drugam.

V začetku meseca februarja, ko je deževna sezona v polnem zagonu, sem se odpravila na Bali. Prvi del potovanja sem preživela v prečudovitem delu Balija obdanim z riževimi terasami imemovanem Tegallalang, kjer se nahaja Bagus Jati Resort. Tam se življenje spremeni v popolnost. Jutranji obiski joge v bungalovu na robu tropskega gozda, Ajurvedski tretmaji, odlična hrana, spoznavanje z balijsko vero in kulturo, sprehodi po tropskem gozdu je samamu potovanju dodalo še poseben čar. Resort na eni strani ponuja veliko možnosti za aktivnejše preživljanje dopusta in na drugi strani popoln mir in tišino. Takšen odklop bi priporočila vsem ljubiteljem nadstandardnih nastanitev, izjemno okusno pripravljene zdrave hrane ter ljudem, ki si želijo ultimativno vzdušje in okolje za sprostitev, osvežitev in motivacijo za zdravo življenje. Zagotovo se na Bali še vrnem.

No tako, tokrat sem si prvič privoščila počitnice za dušo in telo. V enem od resortov na Šrilanki, tik ob morju, ki pa je tudi ravno prav odmaknjen, da lahko šibneš malo ven, med domačine... Sicer pa dnevna doza tretmajev (masaže, kopeli, savne, inhalacje, čiščenja, ...), raznih zeliščnih zvarkov, odlična hrana, plavanje, joga in meditacija (če želiš)... Predvsem pa mir in popolna brezskrbnost. Še posebej, ker sem bila izven sezone, bilo naj bi namreč monsunsko;-)

Mislim, da zdaj približno vem, kaj je ZEN, zagotovo pa si ga bom nekoč ponovno privoščila.

Neja, fajn si mi vse skupaj zrihtala:-)

PRIPOROČAM!
