About Leanne — your retreat host

I’m Leanne, owner and host of Teachers Retreats.

I know Bali like the back of my hand, since travelling to Bali every year for over 35 years. It feels like home to me.

With 6 years as a relief teacher and lower primary special education teacher, I understand the exhaustion and stress that comes with teaching, and I know that Bali is a beautiful place to recharge from work.

With 15 years of travel agent experience, I know the very best Bali secrets — where to eat, what to eat, where to surf, where to shop, where and how to chill out and how to fully experience the wonderful relaxation this island has to offer.

I’ve had the pleasure of running exclusive Bali shopping and homewares tours for many years.

Here are some nice things people have said about me:


“My daughter and I were fortunate enough to go on one of these girly trips with Leanne, and what a trip it was!! Leanne is organised, knowledgeable and just divine. Three months on, and she is still my ‘go to girl’ with all my Bali queries.”

Lauren, Perth

“Leanne's passion, knowledge & experience was second to none and she really went above and beyond to understand what we were most looking to see. Her assistance started from the moment we enquired until well after returning to Australia”

Danielle, Byron Bay
