Designed for our less adventurous traveller, the Bali Comfort Experience combines 3 weeks of relaxation and volunteer work. Although similar to the Bali experience program, its relaxed pace caters to the needs of families travelling with children and older travellers. It allows for interaction with locals and a chance to engage with Balinese culture with activities such as Bali Batik painting and visits to temples and traditional markets such as the Sukawati Art Market. The program is divided up as follows: Week 1: Introduction to Bali Week 2: Volunteer Work Week 3: A week of relaxation This may also be combined with one of our other programs on offer such as the Bali Beach Holiday or the Yoga/Meditation week. Our volunteer programs leave an indelible impression on most participants and as such if you grow to empathize with and love the work done there, we offer you the opportunity for a one-week extension to volunteer work on request.
Private accommodation is provided for this program. All participants are expected to be environmentally responsible and to use all resources with restraint, especially water, paper and electricity. You will be expected to clean up after yourself, and to play your part to keep the accommodation neat and tidy. The volunteer must share taxis for long distance trips and walk for the short distance trips. The food is traditional Balinese for 3 meals/day on weekdays, weekends (2 meals/ day).
Our houses are located in Penestanan village and it will take about 1015 minutes to reach the center of Ubud. All facilities that you could want are within easy access of our accommodation.
