karma holiday: disconnect
The Dusun is a relaxing off-the-grid experience with plenty of nature and gorgeous views. It’s perfect for yogis looking to spend quality time for themselves with like minded people. There is no TV, so do bring a book, music and board games if you like. The Dusun is a self-catering nature retreat. The houses are open-concept to invite views and winds. There are no services after 7pm except in emergencies. Each house has a fully equipped kitchen and barbecue, you’re welcome to bring your own food and drinks. The houses are spread out over 5 acres, so wifi is only on the dining patio. Let’s spend some time to disconnect, so that we can reconnect better when we return to the city.

join us at the dusun for a yoga holiday
