Join us for this transformative retreat.
Constructed in traditional Balinese Balé style, The Place Retreats was founded by acclaimed psychotherapist Jean-Claude Chalmet, as an oasis in the heart of Seminyak, providing an exquisitely, lush setting in which to escape from the mundane, every day world and revel in the luxury of a secluded, private retreat.
Allow your cares to float away in the salt water pool, recline in a sun lounger, find a peaceful shady spot in the garden, or nestle on our sofas with our resident dogs and a book from the private library. Our chefs serve up delectable dishes, catering to your every dietary need.
Our wonderful Balinese team of helpers are on hand 24/7 to anticipate your every need, leaving you to relax and unwind, secure in the knowledge that everything is taken care of for you.
During your time at The Place Retreats you will discover the issues and behaviours that are affecting your life.
Our professional team have many years of experience working with people who are suffering from anxiety, fears, depression, addiction, trauma, stress, emotional and physical abuse and/or relationship dysfunction. You will have total care in a safe space, while healing and recovering from your negative blocks or past trauma. We will guide you to overcoming your fears and becoming the person that you want to be, living the life you want to have, resulting in a feeling of being reborn.
For more background please refer to Jean-Claude Chalmet’s columns in the London Saturday Times.
We assist couples in reconnecting with themselves and one other, both in heart and mind. Suitable for spouses, partners, families, work colleagues, and friends.
The programme will reveal the blockages that are holding you back, that make you feel stuck and will show you how to overcome them.
You will learn how to understand and reconnect with one other, communicate from the heart, heal old wounds, overcome the fears that keep you from moving forward.
All we require is an open mind and a commitment to engage with the programme.
The Place offers a tailor-made, bespoke version of this retreat package. We encourage you to reach out to us to discuss any questions, concerns and feedback that you may have.
The luxurious long stay retreats form the bedrock of The Place.
During our time together, guests undertake a transformational process of dynamic yoga, plus individual and group therapy.
There are lifelong pleasures and rewards in a long stay retreat, along with time to enjoy the swimming pools, tropical gardens, spa treatments, complementary therapies, and delicious food, while embarking on a transformational healing process.
The practice of Kundalini yoga for 40 consecutive days acts as a catalyst for healing, calming the mind and creating new neural pathways for more positive outlooks and behaviours.
If you choose to take the 40 day rather than the 90 day retreat, you can continue the process at home.
Our therapists provide ongoing support, at any time.
