It is also known as one of the most popular celebrity hotspots in the world.

 Our chefs have been trained in some of the top restaurants in Europe and NYC, and most of the ingredients they use are farm to table (from our lovely gardens) and ocean to table. They can accommodate to any dietary needs

2 morning yoga sessions per day led by your hosts, Lindsay & Gurveer.

The first morning class will be a more traditional slow flow class focused on breathwork and longer holds.The second morning class will be a power flow class with creative sequencing and fun transitions. Choose between the two class offerings, participate in both, or skip them – it is your vacation, and everything is optional!

Access to Sandy Lane Beach

Sandy Lane Beach is a long, beautifully maintained stretch of pristine golden sand. The sea here is exquisite and calm, you can just float, close your eyes and drift away. The calm, Caribbean waters make this a great spot for swimming and snorkeling, and watersports operators hire out jet skis and other sailing crafts. During July, you can witness the nesting of the friendly Hawksbill turtles that favor this Barbados beach. There are also fun beach bars. it is no wonder the rich and famous choose this as their spot to unwind.

We are passionate about creating incredible experiences for our guests! Every detail of the trip is carefully thought out. Our goal is for everyone to have a great time, make new friends and lots of memories!

Why Retreat?

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

Recenter, Rebalance, Renew..... I cannot provide nurture and wisdom to the people I love without the opportunity to fill up my own cup. Diane
 

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.
