As you may already know, we have recently launched our new ‘little sister’ retreat The Palm Tree House. There are a few main differences between the two and they appeal to a different demographic. Both Escape Haven and Palm Tree House offer seven day retreats with yoga, spa pampering, excursions around Bali and beautiful accommodations. Escape Haven focuses more on absolute luxury and pure indulgence with exquisite rooms, grounds and a large on-site team to cater to your every need. At Escape Haven, the retreats have vast inclusions- all gourmet meals, daily spa and plenty of other special perks are all part of the package.
With The Palm Tree House, there is a greater focus on freedom and flexibility. With less inclusions and a more relaxed schedule, guests are welcome to create their own retreat and use their spare time as they please. The Palm Tree House also offers two full day sight-seeing adventures so guests can see more of beautiful Bali. There is a small Balinese team onsite, and daily breakfasts are included, as well as 4 of the 7 lunches and dinners. The rest of the meals are open for guests to explore the excellent food options available around Canggu. The final two main differences are that at Escape Haven, retreat dates are set and the retreat is always 100% women only. At The Palm Tree House, there are no set check in or check out dates, and while the villas remain female-only sanctuaries for most of the year, one of the villas also has select dates that offer special co-ed and couples retreat weeks, allowing male guests on retreat too!
