To organize a retreat someone has to have good organizational skills – to organize a life-changing someone has to have a special gift. House of Om has that special gift of choosing the magic place and time, of feeling and attracting beautiful souls, of creating an atmosphere for Love and Spirit.
Elena From Russia "Atmosphere for love and spirit"
It has been the most unique and beautiful experience in my life. It challenged each one of us physically, emotionally and spiritually. House of OM with Wissam is the best gift you can give yourself in your life. Every moment will be more than worth it. You will not regret it!
Zamena From Pakistan "most unique and beautiful experience"
"What you learned, felt and experienced, was outstanding and unforgettable"
Words can't describe how we are felt and how we came back from it positive and refreshed. The activities were varied and very soul-enriching and I just can't wait to go back and experience it once again. We had no idea what to expect and the best thing House OF Om taught me as part of the journey was to not expect anything!
Shilpa From India "positive and refreshed"
My Bali House Of OM trip was transformation. I learned so much about myself and the world around me. All days were perfectly balanced with moments of Zen, yoga, meditation and culture experiences. Highly recommend it for those seeking adventure & spirituality at the same time.
Tarik From Jordan "Zen, yoga, meditation"
I was so lucky to find House Of Om Bali, the location is beautiful not that far from Ubud, very close to the beach, located in an isolated area yet all the services is just few minutes away. It has a beautiful location next to the river, you can hear it while you are in your room. You also can go directly to it and mediate to take sometime alone to connect with nature. It has a beautiful Shala, I used to spend sometime there in the morning after the yoga practice.
The rooms is Spacious, clean and has beautiful view, the food is just another story very delicious. But what is unique about it is the community that they create. You feel home between your family the minute you step in, Much love to house of Om
