Remy, from The Netherlands, decided he wanted a change in his life. The interest of becoming a better version of himself and living a healthy lifestyle was always a big part of his life as he a had professional tennis career. After his tennis career, Remy started his own ticket-company but he came to a point where he asked himself if this was the life that wanted to live, the answer was no. He traveled the world with Kelly for over a year and got inspired in many ways. He did his yoga teacher training and found his way in surfing, cooking and hosting people in hotels. This is the dream.
After giving up a life as a tax advisor in Amsterdam, Kelly traveled the world with Remy to search for something more in life. A search, but no idea what she was searching for. A yoga teacher training, a reiki training, a Vipassana meditation course helped her find happiness by just be. When she stopped searching, a dream developed. A dream to create a place where she could share her passions for good food and yoga and where people can take the time to be conscious of their body, mind & soul. That dream became reality at Eden.

"I came back so relaxed. "
Kelly and Remy were amazing hosts! The yoga sessions were awesome and well in tuned to all participants. It was special practicing yoga and looking out onto the bay. I had the retreat package and enjoyed breakfast and dinner every night. The food was delicious and made with love.
I had Reiki sessions and a massage and I would highly recommend both.
The howler monkeys came by to visit one day with babies and I saw a lot of very beautiful birds. Give yourself a gift and go to Eden.

"Short retreat at Eden"
My quick weekend retreat with Kelly and Remi was just perfect! Eden is a little further away from town, and also situated on a small hill , which gives Eden a beautiful vantage point of the nearby beach. The rooms are spacious and the decks are lovely places to relax. The family style dinners were amazing and of such high quality. The hammocks in the yoga space are also great to relax in. They daily yoga classes were both energizing and very relaxing. The masseuse was also wonderful (even with a sunburn body)! Do the horseback riding during sunset and stay at the beach a little past sundown, you will witness the most beautiful colorful sky! I had a wonderful time at Eden and would highly recommend Kelly and Remi!

This is a beautiful property nestled among the hills of one of Nicuraguas west coast surf towns, San Juan del Sur. The property had a beautiful bay view, the cabanas are cleaned daily and come equipped with sturdy, big bug nets and fans to provide extra comfort from the climate and nicuraguas little buggy inhabitants. We had two daily yoga sessions, side trips, amazing vegetarian meals obviously prepared with care, great hosts, fellow guests and beautiful surroundings. Would definitely recommend.

"Excellent yoga retreat"
The hosts here are super friendly and accommodating. They are also the yoga instructors and chefs! I know, multi-talented. The classes begin easily, getting more advanced towards the end of the week and are definitely suited to all abilities, so don’t hesitate if you’re not a “yogi”, you’re in good hands. Remy will even lead a boot camp HIIT class for you if you feel like you also need something a little cardio based. The views are stunning, the pool is cleaned every morning, the cabanias are so lovely as well. This was a restorative and restful experience, where I met some truly wonderful people, Remy and Kelly included. The food was absolutely incredible. I wouldn’t hesitate to go back, that’s if I can even get a booking once this place takes off!

"Tranquility at its best!"
The retreat was like stepping into a quiet ride on a rainbow! Remy and Kelly went above and beyond with their cooking, accommodations and hospitality. They also had helpers there who were also yoga teachers, Danny and Ren. They were the most delightful couple. I learned SO much about proper form and other types of yoga and the poses. They too, provided top notch hospitality.
