Our Sister Boutique Bali Retreat The Palm Tree House
Did you know that we have a sister boutique retreat? The Palm Tree House is also located in beautiful Canggu, and offers a unique retreat experience at a value price point. You can read all about the retreat packages and beautiful villas on the website here.
Both Escape Haven and The Palm Tree House offer yoga, surf, fitness, Ayurveda healing, detox and Pilates retreats. The Palm Tree House consists of four villas with their own special atmosphere and features. These four villas and the Escape Haven retreat are all on the same road in Canggu, so location-wise, everything is a short walk or cycle away from the beach, shops and cafes.
There are several key differences between our two brands. To help you decide which retreat is best for you, below are the main differences between Escape Haven and The Palm Tree House. You can also compare prices and inclusions for all Escape Haven and Palm Tree House retreat options in our brochure here.
The Palm Tree House is perfect for those who enjoy smaller groups and a little extra seclusion and privacy. While Escape Haven can host up to 16 guests at one time, The Palm Tree House hosts lower numbers. There are three Palm Tree House Villas all located in beautiful Canggu; each with five or six bedrooms. Therefore, maximum numbers are capped at seven guests at any one time and normally run with five guests. Rooms are private and allow for plenty of solo time, while still being surrounded by a small group of like-minded guests that you can enjoy meal time with, pool hangs, and your weekly excursions.
The Palm Tree House doesn’t have set dates, allowing you plenty of flexibility to check in any day of the week. While retreat packages are seven days, there is a minimum four-night stay, meaning you can make your retreat shorter, or even extend it and stay longer as you please or as time allows. Escape Haven retreats have set dates, starting every Saturday for six nights.
While Escape Haven is all-inclusive, The Palm Tree House has slightly less inclusions, which allows you more free time to retreat exactly as you please. While certain activities are structured, such as yoga, fitness and surf sessions, meal times and excursions, there is plenty of free time to spend lounging by the pool, exploring Canggu, shopping, hanging out at the beach, or booking in extra massages, spa treatments or private sessions.
Escape Haven is a luxury, fully-serviced, 5-Star retreat. While The Palm Tree House is beautiful and boutique, it is not as luxurious as Escape Haven, which lowers the price point and makes it truly accessible. Retreats still have plenty of inclusions, excellent service, beautiful luxurious accommodations and everything you need for a healthy getaway in paradise, yet it does offer a very different experience to Escape Haven. The base package at The Palm Tree House starts at $1,495 USD. At Escape Haven, prices start at around $2,295 USD, plus package add-on.
At Escape Haven, all meals are included in the retreat except for two dinners. At The Palm Tree House, with a yoga, surf, fitness or Ayurveda retreat package, you will enjoy daily breakfast, daily lunch aside from sightseeing days and Saturdays, and dinner aside from three nights where you can explore the delicious food scene in Canggu. Snacks are also provided in the afternoons. All Palm Tree House villas are within close proximity to many wonderful cafes and restaurants, and there are also menus in each villa if you wish to order meals and enjoy a night in.
We are proud that The Palm Tree House is fully Indonesian-run. Our team at The Palm Tree House is wonderful and is there to welcome you from day one and will be on-hand throughout the day time hours. The small numbers and boutique nature of the villa retreat allows you to forge a beautiful connection with the team. The chef cooks meals right in the kitchen each day, and there are also two villa hosts or hostesses, gardener, housekeeping, driver and security team. Staff are at the villa from 6am – 9pm each day. At Escape Haven, there is a team of 45 staff looking after the guests, including a small team of dedicated Western hosts. While your every need is taken care of at Escape Haven, The Palm Tree House offers a comfortable atmosphere where guests are encouraged to make the villa their home away from home.
Couples and Mums & Bubs Retreats
While Escape Haven is a women-only sanctuary, one of The Palm Tree House villas opens its doors to both men and women for couples retreats on certain retreat weeks throughout the year. After catering only to women for so long, we really wanted to extend this opportunity to men also and know that men need to retreat just as much as women do! Mums & Bubs retreats are also on offer on set dates throughout the year, allowing mothers to indulge in a wellness getaway while bubs is taken care of by our amazing team of nannies.
Culture is a real focus point at The Palm Tree House. With an all Indonesian team, guests are able to really immerse themselves in learning about the beautiful Balinese ways of life. Every retreat includes a special cultural day where guests learn how to make spirit offerings, enjoy a Balinese cooking class and also visit Tanah Lot temple at sunset where the hand-made offerings can be placed. The staff all have beautiful talents and are full of wisdom when it comes to Balinese culture and lifestyle. Guests can enjoy live Balinese music, learn Balinese dance, and enjoy feeling part of our special Indonesian family during their stay. Of course, everything is always optional, yet these elements are always a highlight for guests.
