Guests are situated in rooms within three semi-attached cottages, according to both preference and practical logistics. Cottage communal areas, including bathrooms, lounges, balconies, terraces, etc. are shared between guests and hosts alike, along with life stories and special moments. A spiritual, "shabby-chic", Dalmatian island farm-cottage ambiance prevails, and the atmosphere here is that of a supportive family of spiritually minded friends.

Earth and Fire cottage

This cottage features three single rooms with fans and space heaters, located on the upper floor of the main retreat cottage. Rooms one and three offer a single bed and room two comes complete with a double bed, perfect for individuals who require a larger mattress size. A spacious house bathroom located on the ground floor (up to three guests sharing) is reserved for residential guests only. The ground floor also features the main retreat living and dining area, which is open to all retreat participants until 10 p.m. The enclosed garden, with dining and lounge areas, is located here as well as the outdoor yoga terrace.

Ether cottage

These elegant and beautiful, newly-built attic rooms come equipped with private, en-suite bathrooms and en-suite air-conditioning or heating. Room six - "mini suite"- features a double bed, or a convertible single-double bed and an additional single cot when two friends are sharing the space. The "master suite" features two single beds that can be placed side by side for couples when needed.

Cottage residents share an indoor tea corner and outdoor terrace lounge and have easy access to the indoor yoga loft space with lounge corner and library.

Booking priority for the master suite is given to friends or couples traveling together, or solo travelers open to sharing with a new retreat mate, while the mini suite may be booked similarly, or as a single for those in need of extra privacy and comfort while on retreat during the yoga B&B events.​

The mini suite may not be available during co-hosted events with visiting teachers while the master suite is only available for single occupancy booking when all other retreat rooms are fully booked!

Wind and Air cottage

This cottage features a romantically-furnished double room that comes complete with an adjacent bathroom, kitchenette and covered terrace with a view to the veggie garden. The cottage has air-conditioning and heating and is ideal for one or two persons. Room four can be fitted with a combination of beds - a beautiful metal-framed double, a double with one twin (or) two restored twin wooden beds. A baby cot fits nicely beside the bed, too, for yogi families traveling with young children.

Booking priority is generally given to friends, couples or family members traveling together on retreat, but it may also be booked by solo travelers open to sharing with a new retreat mate. The room may also be booked as an individually priced luxury single room with private bathroom for those in need of extra privacy while on retreat.​

Shared facilities

In addition to the outdoor yoga terrace and a newly built indoor practice area, other shared facilities include the main living room and indoor dining area, an enclosed garden with outdoor dining area, as well as several other patios, decks, balconies in which guests enjoy socializing in with new retreat friends. Each cottage also features a tea-making corner, where you can prepare fresh herbal infusions using freshly picked ingredients from the garden.

Guests may borrow inspiring books, magazines, music, and DVDs from the retreat library provided they are treated with care, and washing machines are available on a pay-per-load basis.

Though "switching off" is encouraged as much as possible during retreat time, there is also limited Wi-Fi access available in some areas of the retreat property. Please inquire upon booking if you are in need of internet access during your stay.

This B & B, or "beautiful and blissful", five-night yoga retreat program begins with free transfer service from the Stari Grad port at 4:30 p.m. on arrival day, a welcome snack, village tour, and dinner and 60-minute welcome circle to get you started on your holistic yoga journey.

The program continues each day with a daily one and a half-hour dose of integrated morning yoga Sadhana (including chanting, pranayama, asana, mudra, kriya, meditation, etc.) followed by brunch. Optional transport to and from places of interest based on your sample itinerary are organized for your pleasure. A 30-minute meditation session is held at the retreat prior to or post dinner. A light and delicious vegetarian or Dalmatian specialty dinner is served in the evenings. Optional one-to-one holistic therapies, spa, and workshop programs are available by appointment daily from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

About the Morning Sadhana

Sadhana is a daily spiritual practice that includes a balancing blend of techniques to help you tune into yourself, the intentions you have for your life and for the day ahead. Chanting, pranayama, meditation, asanas (postures), and deep relaxation are traditionally included in this process.

The purpose of Sadhana is to enable you to start your day in a sacred, disciplined, and focused way. They will awaken you profoundly; aligning you to your body, mind, and spirit while preparing you to greet life's daily adventures with a sense of peace and clarity.

Suncokret welcomes you to retreat in the charming village of Dol Sveta Ana, a pristine 12th century hamlet discretely nestled into the verdant brush and pinewood forest which majestically rises above the island's oldest settlement, Stari Grad.

An Organic Oasis for the Soul

Dol Sveta Ana is often compared to Provence and Tuscany, with its sprawling vineyards, noble olive groves, fragrant lavender plantations, fertile fields, and charming stone cottages, so eloquently framed by the distant blue sea and open sky. The village is brought to life by the colorful sounds of friendly sun-kissed locals and their range of hearty farm animals going about their day-to-day lives. Located only minutes away from the island's major attractions, yet peacefully tucked away from bustling tourist towns, St. Ana provides an ideal escape from ordinary life to an extraordinary organic haven.

Villa surroundings and ambiance

The complex of semi-attached stone villas is nestled into a secluded corner of Dol, Sveta Ana. The retreat neighborhood remains un-populated much of the year, providing deep peace and tranquility for the guests. During summer months, however, the village tends to fill up with holidaymakers, including natives taking up residence in their ancestral summer cottages that have been in the family for generations. The atmosphere becomes a more vibrant one - a true immersion into authentic village lifestyle on Hvar.

Village offerings versus town conveniences

The village features two local restaurants and a local cafe with Wi-Fi access within walking distance from the retreat. There are no shops, banks or ATM's, post offices, etc., so please plan ahead, though there is plenty of pure nature with inviting footpaths to explore and unlimited supplies of fresh air to help you relax and disconnect from the stresses of city life. Enjoy it.

Getting around

For your convenience, as part of the foundational retreat program package, Suncokret Dream provides complimentary scheduled transport to and from various points of interest each day of the retreat week. Guests may opt to remain at the retreat for quiet time during the day instead and arrange their own transport needs.

The nearest town, Stari Grad, is located two kilometers from the retreat. The journey to Stari Grad takes about 40 minutes on foot, 10 to 15 minutes by bike, and only five minutes by scooter or car (rental options are available in Stari Grad).

Nearby places

  • Stari Grad, 2 kilometers - 40 minutes on foot

Residential guests are offered half-board (two meals per day) as part of the yoga B & B program package. The meals are predominantly made up from fresh, organic, locally produced island ingredients, and are prepared and served with love and simplicity.

A light welcome snack of fresh seasonal fruit and nuts (or perhaps local cheese, bread, and spreads) awaits you on arrival, followed by a dinner and welcome circle in the evening.

From Monday to Wednesday and Friday, Suncokret Dream serves a beautiful brunch in the garden post-yoga practice, while on Thursday a picnic breakfast is served on location after the morning yoga safari outing. Brunch usually consists of fresh seasonal fruit, nuts, warm, and cold cereals, fresh farm eggs, local bread or pastries, veggie and cheese spreads, yoghurt and milk, organic rice or almond milk, and, quite possibly, tasty left-overs from the previous night's dinner (they don't believe in letting precious quality food go to waste)!

Dinner usually consists of a soup and salad starter, followed by a main dish. A self-service breakfast buffet is offered on departure day prior to the closing circle and 10:45 a.m. checkout time, to ensure that you depart from the retreat well-nourished for your journey ahead.

Local tap water, mineral water, herbal tea (and home-made organic cordials, when available) are provided with each meal. As a safe shelter from addictive substances, the policy is to not serve coffee, but you may bring your own emergency supply along, if necessary, or perhaps savor in an occasional cup of the local brew in the town cafes when the need or mood strikes.

Please state any dietary needs at the time of booking.

During your free time, you may want to try a little island adventure. Suncokret Dream can help you to organize activities offered by local providers, including art therapy and painting classes, scuba diving, kayaking, wind surfing, free climbing, hiking, cycling, boat excursions, boat, scooter, or car rental.

Dedicated healing and self-exploration time

While here, you may consider dedicating time to working one-on-one with Evening Marie, who is a holistic yoga therapist, spiritual life coach and energy worker. One or more well-being issues may be addressed through tailor-made personalized holistic programs that will provide you with a useful toolkit along with the nurturing care and attention you deserve to get yourself back on track!

Free time to explore

With the light daily schedule, each day you will find there is plenty of time to relax and explore. Take advantage of the complimentary transfer service that transports you to and from a range of recommended nearby towns or beaches each day. The outing locations are flexible for the participants to decide upon at this time of year, though the standard summer itinerary acts as a guide for the possible location points that may be visited while here.

Free time to relax

Alternatively, spend your days soaking up precious moments in the fresh and untouched pinewood forest areas surrounding the retreat, or simply relax the day away in a hammock, lounge chair or sofa scattered in and around the retreat property, sipping freshly brewed organic herbal tea, and snacking on fresh seasonal fruit, as you spend time journaling and reflecting, or perhaps borrowing offerings of the spiritual, travel, and leisure library.

During your retreat time at Suncokret, you may want to enhance your experience by adding on a range of holistic services that can be tailored to your unique needs. If you would like to address a specific well-being issue, or simply pamper yourself with an extra dose of TLC while on retreat, consider adding on one, or a combination of, the holistic therapies, life-empowerment workshops and organic spa treatments to make the most of your time in the retreat! Please contact Suncokret Dream for further details.

    Très belle semaine de Yoga à Hvar

    PROS J'ai aimé: Excellent accueil d'Evening et Stype. Magnifiques prestations d'Anita Ilicic en yin yoga et chi gong. Beaucoup de bonheur à découvrir cette île superbe.

    Réponse de l'organisateur: Dear friends, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience at Suncokret. We're so deeply touched to know that our purpose, space and services are appreciated by our guests. We thank you again for your visit and hope to see you again. Namaste

    Avis de Marie Steiding, Suède

    CONS Je n'ai pas aimé: I would like to have done a bit more yoga, but I know the program did not have more yoga in the program. Instead I got to learn more meditation-techniques and insights to Ayurveda.

    PROS J'ai aimé: The environment, the feeling of the place. The aim to share their place, love and know-how. I valued how they made sure we had the opportunity to see other parts of Hvar, how they took us places and brought us back.

    Réponse de l'organisateur: Dear Marie, Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about your experience at Suncokret. We really enjoyed having you and the other participants at the Embodied Wellness Event led by our Ayurveda Yoga expert, Bahareh Hosseini. It truly was a magical week with a wonderfully healing, nurturing atmosphere where we feel everyone walked away feeling restored, balanced and equipped with useful Yoga, Ayurveda and other self-care practices that can be applied at home both on and off the mat, which was our program goal You are right that the event did not focus only on Asana (what you refer to as "yoga") and we agree that a person who is looking for a purely asana-based retreat might miss having more of that during such an event! Part of what makes Suncokret unique is our "integrated holistic yoga lifestyle program" outlined here: https://www.suncokretdream.net/yoga whereby we come face-to-face with all aspects of yoga and complementary practices through a string of theme-based events such as the one you attended. To us, Yoga is "chitta vritti nirodha" or the practice of stilling the mind in order to experience inner peace and balance, and we make it a point to explore and share yoga from this broader perspective; shedding light on both its lifestyle philosophies and practical self-care techniques that help empower us in so many ways... We hope you were able to benefit from these offerings and we thank you again for your visit! Namaste

    "Hello to yoga lovers, you might notice I've already written a review in the past about my experience as a retreat participant...I feel compelled to write about my experience as a teacher, perhaps to shine a light for future teachers who may be invited to Suncokret and to reassure prospective retreatees that your experience will be meaningful and memorable. Evening and Stipe meet everyone with warmth and welcome, whatever takes you to Suncokret you will be embraced. During July and - August 2015 it was my good fortune and great pleasure to be invited to lead 3 retreats at Suncokret. Stepping to the front of the room to teach internationally was such a rewarding experience which deepened my understanding of myself, my spiritual journey and my appreciation of the details necessary for a meaningful retreat setting. Evening and Stipe have established processes and attention to detail, schedules and logistics that quietly occur in the background resulting in a smooth retreat for participants and teachers. Communication is key and I was able to easily understand what was required of me as a teacher. Evening shared all information necessary keeping me involved at every point. As a teacher I had space and support to focus on planning and teaching, was fed magnificently, was included and supported throughout the time I was there. Teaching at Suncokret gave me a deeper sense of my svadharma, my calling, I found myself repeatedly thinking, "this is it, this what I am meant t do"...and I believe it. Again I have been invited back for 2016 season. I am honoured by this and would reassure anyone who might teach or retreat to Suncokret that this is a wonderful time place setting and experience - namaste."

    "This trip has been amazing. We felt so welcome and warmly cared for by both the family and the pets. The rooms were sweet, harmonious and cozy decor. The Retreat was beautifully located with a nice view, relaxed atmosphere and a cozy little garden where we sometimes ate brunch, when the weather allowed. The negative I can highlight is the weather, it rained a lot. Amazing cultures with local vegetables were in the immediate area. Also great and nourishing food. Glorious Morning yoga and good evenings with a serious and committed teacher. It was yoga for the whole group of different conditions and levels. Very relaxed, happy and grateful I left Suncokret, with new experiences. I can really imagine to come back :) Thank you! Emelie from Sweden."

    "I have been to numerous yoga retreats and this was by far the most memorable. While Hvar may be becoming a popular destination, the retreat is far from the fray in the best way possible. With views of rolling hills of olive and lavender, yoga is 1-2 hours every morning, followed by a feast in the garden for brunch and then an (optional) excursion to a nearby beach or town (with a beach), and then another lovely vegetarian meal for dinner in the garden. There were a couple very nice outdoor meditation classes as well-- two by the sea and another on a hilltop.As far as the yoga, I came with a serious back injury, in a back brace, and had thought about canceling, but Evening convinced me to come-- well, also the deposit is nonrefundable-- but Evening convinced me it would be good. She spent over 2 hours with me the first day showing me therapeutic exercises for my back (out of the kindness of her heart-- no additional charge). She even made suggestions about detoxing through talking and writing, which I admit I was skeptical about. But in the end it all seems to have worked. The exercises she showed me strengthened my core and with additional physical therapy my back has healed without surgery-- my doctor loves seeing me because he says I'm the only one he's ever healed without surgery-- but really it was Evening who healed it.Also, keeping the journal really cleared my mind and helped me get perspective on my life. And I was lucky to be there at a time when there were a number of lively and kindhearted others with whom to spend days by the beach and wandering the picturesque seaside towns. In fact, I'll be visiting two of them in Sweden soon. I recommend doing all the excursions-- they were all wonderful. Evening and Stipe really take you off the beaten track and show you the real Hvar, but you never feel like you're on a tour-- they kind of just tell you some good facts and drop you off and you're on your way. You can eat a gelato or meditate on a rock-- up to you.For me, the retreat was the best of all worlds-- making new friends, having new adventures, and having a healthy daily routine on a magical beautiful island. It was a great escape and changed my mindset and my life. I am so grateful to Evening and Stipe for creating the environment that they do-- allowing for laughter and silliness, as well as good yoga and meditation, and most importantly for me, real healing. Oh, and I met my new, amazing boyfriend the week I returned. Coincidence? I think not."

The days were spent exploring different beaches and during the night Stipe served us really tasty vegetarian food. We were just a small group of people from all around the world, which was much appreciated since it created a familiar feeling. I felt really calm and relaxed after my stay at Suncokret and I can highly recommend it to others."

All this, and the fact that you are personally interested in the well-being of your guests, made it possible for us to relax on the very first day. Thank you for everything!"
