Black Hole Retreat Package

 

Basic package cost: $137 BND (before any optional add-ons)

Minimum number of participants: 1 person (no extra charge for single guests).

Description: Have you been feeling very wound up, stressed, or anxious lately? Can’t seem to escape those emails coming at you every hour, or scrolling down your Facebook page to check your friends updates? Do you just need a #digitaldetox?

Our Black Hole Retreat package is designed for the modern, weary and worn out guest who just wants a break from technology. Upon arrival at our resort in Batang Duri, we highly recommend that you surrender any and all electronics to our management staff, who will keep your belongings safe and return them to you before departure the next day.

No more emails, calls or social messages to bother you – be invisible to the rest of the world for a day!

Perhaps you can bring your favourite book that is guaranteed to calm and inspire you? Or maybe dive into that novel that you’ve always been meaning to read but never had the time to… until now!

This package is designed to be free and easy, with the bare minimum of adventure activities (i.e. tubing).

We hope that by the end of your stay, you will experience a greater sense of peace with yourself, it will be easier to focus, and your mind chatter will be reduced greatly. That, and we hope you will feel relaxed!

The best part is – you don’t even need to travel more than hour away from Bandar for our #blackholeretreat package!
Enjoy your morning coffee or tea, and watch as time passes you by, on the Temburong river.
