Your Island Escape – Yoga on the Gilis

With yoga and wellness retreats becoming increasingly popular across the globe, many people are recognising  Bali and in particular the Gili Islands, as the perfect quiet oasis to experience all the benefits that these practices can bring. With each island telling its own story, the amazing beaches, stunning sunsets and the total ban on motorised transport, enable the Gili Islands to offer visitors a range of places to relax and immerse themselves in this tropical paradise. This provides the ultimate escapism and BASK aims to encapsulate this seclusion and sanctuary in its world-class facilities.

BASK will offer guests the perfect balance of mindfulness and fitness, providing a 360-degree revolutionary workout experience suitable for everyone. Whether you are after a holistic, intense or a more social workout, the fitness centre will boast a combination of leading gym trends and customer demands in the unique setting of Gili Meno.

And after your workout, what better way to unwind than in BASK’s state of the art, beautifully crafted spa area. With its delicate details and environmentally friendly, modern appeal, this is the epicentre of escapism at BASK.


Yoga is almost as popular as diving on the Gili Islands with many different types of yoga and centres to choose from. Whether you want to join a yoga class, find your own seclusion on the palm lined, white sand beaches, or try your hand at sunrise or sunset paddleboard yoga, there is something for all levels.

When it opens in early 2020, BASK will offer its own yoga options, but in the meantime, we have selected a few suggestions for you to consider.
