About The Place Retreats
Avg. Price / day
The Place was founded by renowned psychotherapist Jean-Claude Chalmet. He has over 20 years experience in the field, building successful practices both in Greece and London and treating clients from around the globe.
Describing himself as a “natural born therapist”, Jean-Claude has developed and refined his therapeutic approach to include Kundalini Yoga and meditation, along with a variety of other complementary therapies (such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Japanese Acupuncture, Watsu, Chi Qong, Clinical Hypnosis, Equine-Assisted Therapy and nutritional healing).
These work together to create profound and lasting transformations in a relatively short amount of time.
The success of this unique process lies exactly in the combination of the mind/body approach that was practiced by the ancient Greeks more than 2500 years ago “A healthy mind in a healthy body”
He does not follow a particular school of therapy but instead approaches any issues with an integrative approach, tailored to the needs of each individual, be that man or woman, a couple or a family.
Constructed in the traditional Balinese Balé style, The Place is a veritable oasis, right in the heart of Seminyak, and provides a deliciously private setting in which to escape the mundane world and to revel in the luxury of an amazing private retreat. Float your troubles away in the salt water pool, recline in a sun lounger, find a peaceful shady spot in the garden, or nestle into the cushions on a sofa with a book from the private library.
Evenings have their own special magic. The hum of cicadas replaces the sweet birdsong, candles flicker in their lanterns and the sky glows with starlight.
Our wonderful Balinese team of helpers are on hand 24/7 to anticipate your every need, often before it has even become one, leaving you to relax and unwind, secure in the knowledge that everything is taken care of for you. They can also provide a unique insight into Balinese culture, and will arrange tours, transports and reservations for you as well as give advice about where to go and places to visit.
While The Place is an utterly private sanctuary where all worries of the world can be forgotten, its location in cosmopolitan Seminyak means you have the best of both worlds. A gentle stroll down the peaceful lane will bring you to bean bag-strewn beach, bars, stylish boutiques and world class restaurants.
The Place Retreats offers accommodation as follows
The Place has eight king-size bedrooms, each air conditioned with en-suite bathroom and uniquely decorated in a modern style with a mix of Asian and European influences. Spacious communal areas are charmingly decorated, melding the magic and mysticism of the east with the grace of old-world Europe and you will find oriental antiques, family heirlooms and rich works of art scattered throughout the rooms.
As the saying goes, a healthy body means a healthy mind, and food has an integral part to play in wellness. Our resident chef is on hand to prepare tasty and nourishing meals throughout your stay, using the freshest of seasonal and organic ingredients. Days begin with a lavish breakfast of tropical fruit, fresh-baked pastries, organic smoothies and daily cooked options.
Lunch is light and wholesome, while in the evening, guests will sit down for a gourmet meal, blending flavours from the Orient and the Mediterranean. Specific dietary requirements such as vegetarian and veganism, and individual requests are happily accommodated.
