Right now, there's no better time to boost your immunity. So try these 5 juice cleanse programs in Bali for a full-body detox, delivered to your doorstep.
Even before this whole Coronavirus pandemic reared its ugly head, Bali has been a mecca for health & wellbeing, with more superfood-rich restaurants, wellness retreats and yoga destinations than you can shake a coconut at. And with the island’s abundance of fresh produce, pool-side massages and spa treatments galore, Bali is the perfect place to rest, reset and detoxify for a sparkly new you, sans visiting a health retreat.
But don’t worry, we’re not leaving you to fend for yourself out there. We asked expert health & wellness blogger Lolita Walters to give us the low-down on the best juice cleanses in Bali. This dedicated health guru did the detoxing for us, and after a diet of just juice and sometime soup, she found 5 cleanse programs that’ll leave you glowing from the inside out in a matter of days.
In the Raw – Rainbow Juice Cleanse
Well known in Bali as a one-stop shop for health goodies a go-go, In the Raw specialises in cold pressed juice cleanses with a rainbow of produce in every bottle. Founded by Mark Baker, one of the pioneers of the cold pressed juice movement in the US, he brought his passion for improving your physical and mental health through juice fasting to Bali. “It’s not rocket science” says Mark, “it’s all about what you put in to your body and also what you don’t put in. A cleanse literally retrains your mind and body to stay away from toxic and processed foods.”
In the Raw’s juice cleanse programs are completely customisable, usually based around consuming six to eight 350ml bottles of fresh juice a day for the duration. All of the juices taste amazing, each one with just the right balance of ingredients in their carefully curated recipes. With a diverse juice menu, this cleanse never gets boring and gives your digestive system a well-deserved rest. It also floods your body with live nutrients and enzymes, and leaves you feeling on top of the world. Once you’ve finished, head down to In The Raw Beachgarden in Canggu and get your post-cleanse fill of their healthy bites.

Juice and Shine – ‘Live’ Low-Sugar Juice Cleanse
The ‘Live’ cleanse by Juice and Shine consists of raw, cold pressed juices with no sweet fruits or sweeteners of any kind. This makes it an ideal option for experienced cleansers who want a more rigorous detox or for those who cannot tolerate fructose.
Begin your day with the alkaline water infused with cucumber and lemon to kickstart your immune system, then continue your way through seven more colourful juices specifically designed to boost your detoxification system, flush out toxins, hydrate your cells, nourish your body and leave you feeling better than ever. The juices include the Green Wave (with celery, parsley, romaine, spinach, cucumber, lime and ginger), the Sunrise (with carrot, pumpkin, ginger and lime) and the Turmeric Gold – a nutrient-packed blend of turmeric, ginger, lemon, water, coconut flower blossom nectar and chilli pepper. The bottles are quite small, so drink these juices frequently with sips of herbal teas to help get you through. Once you do, you’ll emerge glowing.

Remix Juice – Light Cleanse
Remix Juice handcrafts cold-pressed juices from the heart and each bottle is bursting with an abundance of local produce. If you’re not quite ready to dive headfirst into a full liquid cleanse, then their Light Cleanse option could be the perfect segue for you into the world of juicing. Ideal for beginners, this package substitutes one meal a day with one 500ml bottle of Remix juice with a variety of greens, roots, fruits, citrus and raw almond milk.
Remember to keep all the solid meals light, low in calories and rich in fibre to assist your light cleanse. Remix and their Umalas café Remix & Co offer a variety of healthy food options to help you along the way, such as their Buah Bowl (full of tropical island fruits) or Kyoto Bowl – a savoury soba noodle rainbow salad which fits in beautifully with any clean eating regime.
