Accommodation

Your accommodation will be in luxury apartments in the brand new Sun & Sea Plus complex, set in a peaceful location two-minutes’ walk from the village centre of Plaka, and five minutes’ walk from our base in Villa Hectoras.

The complex has four swimming pools and its own bar with very friendly staff - the Quantum Potential team checked it out on their recent trip to Crete and they can heartily recommend the cocktails!

Apartments are available for single or shared occupancy (please let Quantum Potential know when you book who you plan to share with), and you can choose between an upstairs apartment with sea view and a ground floor apartment with its own poolside terrace (subject to availability - please let Quantum Potential know when you book if you have a preference).

Program

Quantum Potential is a unique, holistic, and personalized approach to body and mind, combining deeply relaxing and meditative yoga sessions with mental techniques to develop greater self-awareness and free yourself from limiting beliefs and behaviours.

By the end of the week, you should feel like you are floating on air - happy, relaxed and authentic. More importantly, you will return home armed with techniques to help you stay in control of your life and ready to make changes where necessary. It should be a magical experience.

Daily schedule

The schedule for the retreat contains a mix of yoga sessions, seminars, and group work with plenty of time to relax and explore the local area - including Plaka itself, the lovely nearby seaside resort of Almyrida and stunning Venetian port of Chania.

The daily practice starts with yoga in the beautiful Villa Hectoras. This traditional Cretian-style villa is set in a lovely quiet location with spectacular views of the sea to one side and the White Mountains to the other. It has a fabulous swimming pool and plenty of outdoor space for eating, seminars and yoga. There is also plenty of indoor space in the unlikely event of bad weather.

After a delicious breakfast, you will be ready for the self-discovery workshops. These will cover a range of inspiring topics from the Quantum Potential programme, including restoring balance, how to declutter your mind, and setting meaningful goals.

After lunch, your time is your own. You can chill out by the pool (either at the Villa or back at the apartments), go shopping, or explore the local area. On at least one day, it is recommended to check out the footpath down from Villa Hectoras to the sea!

As an extra, Quantum Potential are also offering Thai yoga massage treatments and one-to-one coaching sessions in the afternoons (subject to availability). The day ends with evening yoga practice and dinner at the villa or one of the wonderful local tavernas.

  • 08:00 - 09:00 Breakfast at the hotel
  • 09:15 - 10:30 Yoga slow-flow - waking up the body
  • 11:00 - 12:30 Seminar and group discussion

Included excursions

Retreat location

Villa Hectoras and the Sun & Sea Plus apartments are situated just outside the lovely traditional Greek village of Plaka, which offers a selection of shops and tavernas (and not too many tourists!).

There is a regular shuttle bus from the Sun & Sea Plus apartments to the lovely little harbour resort of Almyrida with its long, sweeping, sandy beach which slopes gently into the sea. Almyrida also has a much wider selection of restaurants and bars.

If you fancy venturing further afield, you’re in luck. Plaka is close to many beautiful places to visit, including Chania, Aptera, Stilos, Kalyves, and Kera beach - there is a lot to explore. Tam has a really good knowledge of Crete (she used to live there!), so if you need any help or advice in terms of where to visit, organizing car hire, etc. just ask!

Food

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are included in the price. This includes seven breakfasts, five lunches, and five dinners at Villa Hectoras, and two group meals out at local tavernas. On your rest day, you have the opportunity to check out the local restaurants in Almyrida or Plaka for lunch and/or dinner.

Meals at Villa Hectoras will be prepared by the talented resident chef, Marit, from fresh local ingredients (the fruit, vegetables, and seafood here are especially good).

Meals will generally include meat but vegetarian and vegan options will be available. Please let Quantum Potential know of any special dietary needs in advance. As the group is small, Marit should be able to cater for you.
