"50th Birthday treat to myself "

Plakor is such a warm and welcoming host. I felt comfortable immediately

There were 9 likeminded women in the group of mixed ages and levels of fitness

The room I shared with my friend was modern and spacious with lots of quirky personal touches Our balcony looked onto the cove and we saw the Sunrise each morning

The daily program really flowed well.

7.30 yoga with Oto was challenging in a good way He really woke our energy up and made it fun

The chef Ned made us delicious fresh vegetarian food each day

Breakfast after yoga was porridge, fruit, fresh bread, cheese etc We were definitely well fed

There was free time before a lunchtime session which was varied Some guided meditation and breathing techniques which I really enjoyed

There are small rocky beaches around the cove to sunbathe and swim in the beautiful clear sea

Evening yoga was around 6.30 with Lori or Plakor and was really different each time A feast would be waiting for us afterwards

I really feel like extra effort was put into making our experience fun A few trips out to see more of the island were great

Croatia is a beautiful interesting country

Would recommend this retreat to yogis who are beginners or experienced alike

Namaste 🙏

"Wonderful yoga retreat"

This yoga retreat was such a wonderful experience! The daily yoga practice, the beautiful bay and clear sea, the pranayam and meditation sessions and the wonderful people, all contributed to the relaxing experience of this week.

Thank you Plakor, Lori, Oto, Ned and Anna for organising everything with such care!

"Perfect retreat"

Gorgeous location in a secluded bay, we swam in the sea every day, felt so safe. The yoga was amazing, great teachers, more intense in the morning, more chilled in the evening, and very supportive. Enjoyed every single session, and the meditation was really relaxing too.

Fabulous trips around Hvar Island and to Braç island too, and spent a few hours in split on the way to the retreat, amazing Roman palace. The food was exceptional, every meal was a highlight! Thank you so much to Plakor, Oto and Lori, for sharing your knowledge, and being so understanding and such great company! Hope to see you all again some day 💕💕

"wonderful relaxing and informative "

I greatly appreciated the thought and care which went into the whole experience. Plakor organised everything to give us the best possible time and we were very lucky that the sun shone to enhance the stunning location. The programme was just right, with time for a good yoga workout, relaxation, beach time and excursions. We had the chance to visit interesting places and to get to know each other socially as well as sharing bonding discussion. The food was the best vegetarian food I have ever tasted every single meal! The family were incredibly welcoming and I felt that nothing was too much trouble to ensure my comfort and enjoyment. Thank you so much!

"A fantastic week"

A fantastic week.Friendly participants of different ages from many countries and different experiences. Despite differences, there was a tolerance and interest that felt imaginatively beneficial. A well-balanced combination of asset and rest. Absolutely amazing vegetarian / vegan food. Am grateful for my week in Hvar.

"A week of Mediterranean rejuvenation"

This retreat was a perfectly curated week of yogic bliss. Plakor, Oto, Lori, Ned, and Anna were very welcoming from the very beginning and made us all feel like a family through the introduction sessions and group meals. The quality of the yoga was authentic and complete with pranayama, meditation, asana, and detailed but not overwhelming discussions of the yoga sutras - the organizers brought back some excellent teaching from India. Despite being in a group of seven participants, we felt individually cared for and important. The location is wonderful and shared the best the Mediterranean has to offer - fresh figs, olive trees, sun, and the sea just a staircase away. The day excursions were quite fun and were a nice way to enjoy a bit of tourism as a group. Finally, the food was an absolute highlight. Everything was vegan with the exception of some Halloumi accompanying some dishes. Ned the chef put his heart in the cooking, with very nutritionally complete meals and generous buffet-style servings which leave even a man of 186cm and 85kg fully satisfied. We have no regrets when it comes to this retreat and fully recommend it to anyone who wants to relax the mind and body in the company of authentic teachers who put their hearts into making this retreat wonderful.

"Highly recommended blissful experience"

This was an unforgettable experience that far exceeded my expectations. Basina Bay, with its crystal clear and calm waters, was the perfect backdrop for many of our sessions. Plakor, Oto and Lori’s sessions are planned to balance the day whether it be Oto’s energizing morning session, Lori and Plakor’s lunchtime mediation or light yoga session or the evening wind down session. The smells and taste of the food were delectable. I am not a vegetarian and have a long list of dietary restrictions, however Ned was able to cater an amazingly delicious menu that left me extremely satisfied and Lori’s breads and desserts were wonderful. Not to mention the abundance of fresh fruit all around us! The activities and excursions were unique and memorable. While the participants were from different countries and backgrounds, we all shared a love of yoga and are now deeply connected through this experience. I am so grateful for the care and consideration put into this retreat to make it so special and memorable. It was exactly what I needed. I cannot recommend this Yoga Retreat enough.

"Exactly the retreat I needed"

It's difficult to list all of the things which made this retreat so special - everything surpassed my expectations! Firstly, Plakor and the other organisers at the retreat are so incredibly warm, genuine and friendly. Oto has a natural gift for teaching, Lori brought wonderful new experiences to the group and Ned is both a talented chef (food was mindblowingly good all week) and great musician. The house is absolutely beautiful and homely with a stunning view of the bay. Plakor made sure everybody was comfortable and catered for all week. The sea is just a staircase away and provides a great setting for beach relaxation, walking or swimming. The quality of yoga teaching was of a very very high standard - I'm currently trying to find something similar back home but I know I'll always compare it to Hvar. However, an unexpected highlight for me was the variety of other activities. The excursions were all well thought out and such fun! Plakor really went the extra mile to take us to gorgeous places not only for day trips to islands etc but also for sunset yoga, dancing and singing. The meditation, breathing, chanting, singing, dancing and sharing sessions all combined to make this a really well rounded and beautiful experience - this is not just a physical yoga retreat. I am so grateful for the experiences I had on Hvar, I took so much from my time there and I can not recommend it enough for anyone looking to learn more about yogic living and have a great holiday

"Fantastic "

What a fantastic week. Plakor, Oto and Lori make it such a positive and spiritual experience from the first moment you depart the ferry onto Hvar island. The food is unbelievable, Ned and Laura cater for everybody and the variety of meals is amazing. The morning yoga sessions have you feeling energised and ready for the day which are full of activities, you will be constantly learning. The yoga classes taught by Plakor, Oto and Lori are all unique and varied and show you many sides of yoga, as well as being immersed in meditation and pranayama daily which will leave you feeling completely refreshed and balanced by the end of the week, with many new ideas to add into your daily life. The location is perfect, with plenty of free time to swim in the crystal clear water, go for walks picking fruit off the abundance of trees around the island or spend time with like minded people. The trips to Hvar Town, Stari Grad and my favourite Brac are very well organised and a great way to see the island in a relaxed and fun way. I would highly recommend to anybody.

"Never been so relaxed"

Where to start... With the location with the awesome view, the delicious meals with vegan options prepared by chef Ned, the super relaxed atmosphere? Or with the great yoga classes - with view on the sea and very good instructors? This was my first yoga retreat and I enjoyed every minute of it. Plakor, Lori and Oto make you feel very welcome, and all three give very nice yoga classes. In the morning, the yoga is more energising and even though it's early, Oto will make you smile and laugh all the way. In the evening it's time for more relaxed yoga with Lori or Plakor, and they always have something good in store. The yoga sessions were combined holistically with meditation and some study parts that were very interesting. Apart from the yoga there are some nice excursions and plenty of time to swim in the nearby sea. So there's a good balance between effort en relaxation, both on and off the yoga mat. Plakor, Oto and Lori are always available for question about yoga, breathing techniques, meditation or just for a chat and they make this retreat truly fun and relaxing. At the end of the week I felt more relaxed that I've ever been and I was sad to leave the beautiful island with these beautiful people.

"100% Yoga - mind, body and soul "

From the moment we were greeted at the ferry by Plakor until the day he took us back to the ferry we experienced true yoga.

Plakor & his team are fantastic instructors, kindhearted, professional, & generally wonderful human beings. The retreat was fantastic. The food lovingly prepared by Ned & Laura, was absolutely phenomenal! We were given generous portions of vegetarian & many vegan dishes, there was also gluten-free options.

Yoga classes were beautiful - morning classes on the balcony overlooking the turquoise sea, the waves gently lapping at the shore. Oto is a wonderful and professional yoga instructor he caters the classes for all levels. His open heart shines through during his class and he is humbly available to talk about your individual practice. Laurie’s afternoon class is exquisite. Her peaceful presence slows down the nervous system & brings you to a place of deep calmness. Laura’s assistance throughout the retreat was wonderful. She is an amazing woman with Ayurveda knowledge & allows others to feel relaxed and calm in her presence. Plakor is a beautiful man who facilitates the whole retreat. He has immense yogic knowledge and experience, his playful nature, creates a relaxed environment for others to tap into their creativity. He is available 24/7 for any queries questions or concerns. His retreat is perfectly designed to balance the mind, body & spirit.

Turquoise waters 2 min walk away, chanting, quiet reflections, wonderful participants all contributed 🙏

"An authentic yoga experience"

I have been to 7 yoga retreats in 6 different countries and have been to many classes in the USA, but this was the first time I found what I was really looking for in the practice of yoga. I wanted to work on breathing techniques (pranayama) and meditation in addition to the asanas. I also wanted the spirituality that should come with the daily practice. This particular retreat balanced all of the above with free time, side trips, tours and a neighboring island visit all for the stated price. I was also impressed with the 3 daily sessions and the bond it created with all of the attendees. I would not hesitate to go back and do it all over again!

"A great experience "

A great retreat in beautiful Hvar with wonderful people. The week was well planned and full of new experiences. A very complete and uplifting program! Twice daily yoga, 1-2 meditation sessions and extra optional activities in the evening. The food was varied, delicious and nourishing. It was my first yoga retreat and first time in Croatia, both exceeded my expectations. The organisers put a lot of effort into making us feel welcome and planned great trips to local towns and beautiful Brac island. This retreat is suitable for beginners, advanced practitioners, and all in between, as it was adapted to each person’s level. Each class was well planned out and aropriately challenging. If it’s your first time in Hvar, you’re in for a treat! Each yoga class was set around the beautiful bay with stunning views. I can’t recommend it highly enough!

"Best yoga retreat "

Amira and I loved everything about the retreat. Plakor was very caring and attentive to everyone's needs and we gained a lot out of the breathing and meditation practices. Meeta and Plakor's yoga sessions were informative, fun and challenging. The location is absolutely beautiful and we felt welcome in their family home. Thank you 😊

"Blissful yoga retreat "

From the moment Plakor warmly welcomed our group as we arrived at the port this retreat was glorious! His care and attention to detail were very much appreciated. Meeta's yoga teaching was inspiring, I felt that my practice improved every day. I found stillness in the meditation sessions. Our evening sessions with Plakor were lovely and often great fun! The excursions were so much fun, I will always remember our many spontaneous party moments and surprises!

The setting is so beautiful and tranquil, swimming in the crystal clear Adriatic was bliss. I could taste the love in the delicious food that Ned and Anna prepared for us. Our accepting and diverse group gelled really well which enhanced my week. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for this unforgettable experience. You are an extraordinary group of people. I have taken so much away with me, I feel refreshed, rejuvenated and committed to keep up my daily practice!

Tips for prospective yogis - you will be in yoga kit or swimwear most of the time and, if like me you have delicate feet, take some beach shoes to ease your way into the sea from the rocks!

"Very speacial Retreat"

From the minute we arrived we felt like Family. Plakor went above and beyond to make sure the whole group was happy and enjoying themselves. Location and views were stunning and tranquil. We covered lots of different aspects during the week, Yoga, Breathing, Sharing, Meditation and down time. Various trips were organised which were all included in the price and fun. Plenty of food which was excellent.

All in all this was an excellent experience all round.

Weather was perfect which of course was an added bonus. We were able to have all the yoga sessions on an open terrace or roof top.

I would recommend this retreat whole heartedly and I will remember it for ever.

"incredible value for money "

This retreat has got to be one of the best out there in terms of value for money. Accommodation, daily yoga and meditation, all meals (which were delicious) numerous excursions (including one with a tour guide around Hvar town) are all included in the price: no hidden extras whatsoever. The location is wonderful, seconds away from the sea down some steps. Very quiet and non-touristy.

The retreat takes place in Plakor's family home and the chef is a good friend of his, which makes the atmosphere lovely. Plakor grew up in this area so he takes you to different places and beeches that you wouldn't otherwise know about.

Plakor is attentive but easy-going: there is lots on offer but the atmosphere is very relaxed so it is easy to sit things out and go at your own pace.

Meeta takes the morning yoga classes. She has a very good understanding of yoga and the body and keeps things fun / playful. All in all, highly recommended.

"Pure love and happiness "

I can't think of anything on the retreat that I didn't like.

The location at Basina bay is so beautiful and calming, as soon as I arrived and saw the house and the view it felt like home.

The daily structure was great and it was made better by the passion that Plakor had to making the whole week a success.

Morning yoga was instucted by Meeta who is by far the best yoga teacher I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Her calming voice and continuous humour made the 2 hour sessions fly by with joy. Even in thoughs stretches and postures you have doubt on.

Before lunch the guided mediation was different for me, it was more of a challenge but luckily with help from Plakor and the group I was able to sit still and be present.

I could talk about how amazing this trip was all day. The kindness and love that comes from being here is what I'm taking back with me to the uk. Thank you for the best week ever.

But lets not forget thr incredible food that was made fresh everyday for us breakfast, lunch ane dinner. This aswell as the trips we went on msde this the best value for money ever.

The place is magical. Plakor and Meeta gave me deep and profound insight of yoga. All yoga sessions were great in fisical and spiritual way. There were organized 3 very interesting excursions and the last night on the beach, under the stars and violine playing was really something that I will remember. Food was extraordinary delicious. This yoga retreat was the best present ever that I made to myself

Buduci da smo mi bili prvi Hrvati iz Hrvatske na vasem Yoga Retreatu duznost i zelja mi je napisati ovaj feedback na hrvatskom jeziku. I buduci da nisam imala mogucnosti sherati sa vama moja iskustva zadnji dan retreata, koristim ovime tu priliku. Tim feedbackom zelim izraziti da mi je ovo bilo najbolje iskustvo u zadnje vrijeme, osjecam se toliko laganom i lijepo opustenom, sa puno energije za ici dalje.... Dragi Plakor puno hvala na tvojoj organizaciji svega, meni je bilo svega umjereno dovoljno i ne previse ili premalo sto se tice yoge, izleta i slobodnog vremena. Jako mi se svidja koliko je Meeta profesionalno ispunjavala njene obaveze, ali i s druge strane se kao draga osoba neprimjetno i nenametljivo uvukla u nasa srca. isto kao i ti Plakor. Na pocetku mi nije bilo jasno ono sve grljenje i sl. mislila sam to je neki show. Kad sam te s vremenom bolje upoznala i uvidjela da si ti stvarno takav autentican. Da sa toliko srca i volje i iskrene zelje da svima bude dobro, a ipak trudom da se na jednom profesionalnom nivou sve to odrzava radis svoj posao (mislim da je to Karma Yoga, ti radis da drugima bude dobro, a ne ocekujes nista zauzvrat;) to sam sad naucila od tebe, tnx:) i zato ti zelim da jos dugo, dugo i uspjesno radis to sto volis: tvoj YR na predivnom i prelijepom komadicu naseg lijepog Jadrana;) i da te tvoji roditelji i sestre uvijek toliko podrzavaju.

"Best Yoga retreat, exceeded my expectations by far!"

This yoga retreat was everything I hoped for. The location of the house and it’s view was absolutely stunning overviewing the pretty bay of Basina. My single room was nicely furnished, very small, but I had everything I needed.

It was great to get up early to have our first yoga session before breakfast taking place on this great terrace with sea view. We would get rewarded by the best breakfast on Hvar brought to us by the Chef Ned, who is an amazing cook and made sure we would have delicious vegetarian or even vegan meals three times a day!

I loved how Plakor and Meeta took care of us, they really made this retreat a special one. Planning all these nice excursions to the small town of Stari Grad, Hvar town with a private walking tour and a boat trip to the island Brač! This also wouldn’t get in the way of mediation sessions and the daily evening yoga session.

Also Plakor and Meeta shared a lot about their yoga believes and philosophy so everyone could find something to connect to and hold on to to have a truely individual experience. There was always enough time to either spend time by yourself or with the others hanging out on the beach.

This was by far more than I expected and I feel absolutely great after this week of stunning nature, yoga and inspiring people!
