Little Paradise

About us

Little Paradise is a private guesthouse outside Hamburg, Germany. It is a place for a relaxing timeout, spiritual retreat, or meditation holiday.

We offer private accommodation, yet we are no hotel, pension or B&B; as all holiday rooms are equipped for self-supply. As a seminar house we offer rooms for workshops and other events.

The guesthouse has a large meditation room with a fireplace, and a cozy, well-equipped kitchen. An idyllic garden with terrace and garden pond invites you to pause and dwell. The small library of spiritual books is another great place to lounge and retreat in the house.

Our house is specially designed for people to find deep rest, stillness and to reconnect with nature and the inner. Many guests participate in shared meditations, others simply enjoy the peaceful tranquility of this place by resting and soaking in the amazing view of the garden, the lakes and wildlife of the nature sanctuary beyond. It provides the perfect environment for silence, meditation, writing, reading, walking, cycling, and bird watching. 

Some other features:

  • Scenic view of the nature reserve & lake

  • Large population of large and rare birds

  • Enchanted permaculture garden

  • Ecological construction of the house

  • Organic vegetarian lifestyle 

  • Surrounding fields, forests, meadows, and lakes 

  • Daily group meditation sessions (optional)

  • No TV in the house*

* There is reliable high-speed WiFi/WLAN available throughout the house and garden.

We love what we do and do what we love.

Venue Highlights

We provide space and atmosphere for deep peace and silence.
Individual retreaters are very welcome. Silent retreats are possible. Group events just as well.
Inhabitants and guests usually form a loose community. Shared meals in the kitchens, authentic encounters, deep conversations are part of our daily life.
Guests are free to choose, how far they want to participate or stay for themselves.

The surrounding nature is truly beautiful.

      Little Paradise

    Little Paradise is a wonderful place to take stock and reconnect to you core self. Surrounded by the beauty of nature it is also perfect for allowing yourself to relax and unwind in a tranquil setting. Would recommend to anyone who feels the need to stop slow down and reconnect with themselves and the rhythms of life.

      If you want to be relax, connected with nature and find harmony this is your place

    I spent a few days at this guesthouse. I though that was going to be just a relaxing experience to save energy to get back to routine. But it was more than that. I did meditations in the morning and afternoon, I ate so good productos, organic, ecological food, I started to sleep better that I used to do it, I met new and interesting people and everyday I took a walk to do exercise and enjoy nature. This house is really a little paradise. You have your own space, but also a sharing space with self-aware persons that helps you to mature. For anybody who wants to be reconnected with the nature and the world this is the perfect place, no doubt.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Reconnecting with myself after a very crazy few months with a new baby! Just having that feeling of being grounded again. But also having an opportunity to connect with new amazing people. Getting exposed and Inspired by new (to me) yoga instructors (and community). Being in the presence of real, authentic and raw emotion (the whole spectrum).. So many reasons! Alyson

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
