What makes Active Escapes the best?

Bali Fitness Retreats

Bali stands out as the pinnacle of wellness and fitness retreats around the world, offering enchanting beauty of Indonesia’s landscapes with so much to do around the island. We have been running our Escapes in Bali for over a decade and have dedicated full time staff ready to show you the best week ever,  it’s our most popular destination for sure.  What makes Bali’s Active Escapes the best?

Firstly, it’s the diversity in locations within Bali itself. From the vibrant energy of Canggu to the stunning cliffs of Padang Padang and the tranquility of Lombok (next to Bali), each location offers a unique backdrop for wellness journeys. This variety caters to diverse preferences, ensuring an experience tailored to every participant.  As our guests keep coming back we have different options for them to enjoy.

Moreover, the expertise of the trainers and the team behind Active Escapes is unparalleled. Led by experienced professionals, these retreats prioritize inclusivity, ensuring that regardless of fitness level or age, everyone finds their place in the program. Their commitment to crafting diverse workouts, combined with luxurious accommodations and gourmet dining, sets Bali’s Active Escapes apart.


Active Escapes isn’t just about fitness; it’s a celebration of fun, fostering connections and creating unforgettable experiences. With vibrant activities, lively events, and a community of like-minded individuals, every moment at Active Escapes is infused with laughter, excitement, and joy. From beachside parties to thrilling workouts and immersive adventures, the focus on wellness doesn’t overshadow the sheer enjoyment that permeates every activity. It’s a perfect balance—a space where fitness meets fun, ensuring each participant leaves with not just a healthier body but also cherished memories and a huge smile.


From surfing to zip lining and wake boarding, you’ll run high on adrenaline and step out of your comfort zone. All experiences are optional, but well worth the adventure. Depending on the location you choose we have different activities designed for maximum fun!!

Amazing Locations

Active Escapes meticulously selects the world’s finest locations, ensuring each retreat offers an idyllic setting for wellness and adventure. Our all-inclusive packages encompass freshly cooked meals, a cornerstone of our experience. With a focus on nutrition and flavor, our gourmet cuisine fuels and satisfies, included in the package without hidden costs. While drinks are the only potential additional expense, we believe in balance, and sunset drinks by the beach or pool serve as a delightful complement to our holistic approach. It’s about providing a complete, immersive experience where participants indulge in wellness, relish in fantastic meals, and savor moments of relaxation in stunning locales.

What our guests think

Just completed my third retreat and yet again had an absolutely amazing time. Great location, luxury accommodation, excellent trainer  and fabulous food. It’s the perfect combination of fun, fitness and food. I travelled on my own and the layout of the retreat means it’s really easy to meet people. I’d been on the ‘fitness retreat’ circuit for a number of years and since I’ve discovered Active Escapes I’ve never gone anywhere else. I love how international the participants are, it’s lovely to meet people from all over the world.

Gemma L – Noosa Escape 2018

This is exactly the trip/experience I have been looking for and it surpassed all of my expectations. Active Escapes has created a one of a kind fitness retreat that includes a fun/balanced/amazing experience. You work out hard, but with breathtaking views and an amazing trainer.

Ivonne – Bali Escape 2018

I was really worried about going on a “fitness retreat” as I don’t train very often and never lift weights. I have been on lots of retreats before but never one dedicated to fitness. The first day I was really nervous but everyone was so friendly and welcoming and the first session by our trainer Andrew pap was all about technique ensuring that all the exercises we would be doing over the next few days would be performed safely and with maximum impact. Even those in the fitness industry got something positive out of this session.
The group of people on the retreat were from all different countries, backgrounds, ages and fitness levels and it was great to see that everyone was challenged individually by altering the exercises and repetitions.
Active escapes is way more than a fitness retreat. It is an amazing journey and transformation for the body but also the mind! I have learned so much and met some amazing people and the week was full of laughs and amazing experiences.

Ashlee W – Bali Escape 2018

Met such an awesome group of people at Active Escapes in the Maldives…can’t wait to plan my next trip! One of the best weeks ever! Everyone in the group was so nice and I made friends that I’m definitely going to keep in touch with. We were super active with 2 challenging workouts a day plus yoga, plus boat, surfing and snorkeling excursions. A great way to see a new tropical place, meet awesome peeps and get FIT! Loved every second.
