An uncharted territory for many, this stage of life often brings challenges that are scarcely discussed, and this retreat aims to break the silence, empowering women to navigate this journey with confidence and grace.
What sets "Pause for the Week" apart is its focus on the metamorphosis that is menopause, a subject often shrouded in societal taboos.

Pros and Cons
The retreat's strength lies in its diverse healing modalities and immersive experiences. Daily walking meditations, yoga sessions, plant-based culinary training, and a sacred Agni Hotra fire blessing ceremony construct a well-rounded and meaningful retreat experience.
However, it's worth noting that "Pause for the Week" is geared towards women in a specific life stage. While this specialized focus is a strength, it may be less appealing to women seeking a broader wellness experience.
Compared to the Competition
In comparison to similar wellness retreats, like the aforementioned Ocean Soul Retreat, "Pause for the Week" offers a more profound, personal journey towards healing. While Ocean Soul Retreat promises a blend of adventure and relaxation, "Pause for the Week" provides a dedicated safe haven for women undergoing menopause, a niche that few others cater to.
"Pause for the Week" is a beacon for women sailing the challenging seas of menopause. Its insightful sessions, soulful activities, and nurturing environment make it a highly recommended choice for women seeking understanding, tools, and solace during this significant life transition.
For women who are more inclined towards an active retreat that includes adventure sports like surfing, the Ocean Soul Retreat in Bali could be an exhilarating alternative.
In conclusion, Five Elements Bali's "Pause for the Week" is a unique retreat that courageously tackles menopause head-on, creating a sanctuary where women can embrace change, find support, and emerge stronger and more in tune with themselves.

Pros and Cons
Gwinganna's retreat has been meticulously designed to rejuvenate, strengthen, and educate women. Its wellness program is its crown jewel, striking a balance between education and application. Its salubrious environment and thoughtful inclusions, such as a massage, $100 wellness therapy credit, access to all facilities and activities, and airport transfers, round off a fulfilling package.
However, one must note that it commands a considerable investment. At $65 extra to your package, this retreat demands a discerning clientele, keen on self-improvement and willing to pay a premium for superior wellness expertise. Also this is not exclusively a women's retreat and only with their package.
