    To me, it was more yoga classes in the morning and evening than a retreat. The teacher was very nice and the yoga was good but, what was sold online had not much to do with what I was offered there. The yoga area was nice, but no real yoga on the beach as stated on the website apart from the Sunset yoga session on White Island.

    The accommodation was comfortable but the roof was leaking on one might - not even a compensation, had some miscomprehension regarding meals, and I have been to much better places and at much cheaper rates so I would not come back. Definitely a diving spot but not much of a yoga retreat!

    I left Camiguin Island this morning feeling relaxed and alive, yet sad to be going home. My yoga and scuba retreat was everything I'd hoped it would be and more. Kaisa is a great host and it feels like you're being welcomed into her home, not just her business. The accommodation is well equipped and spotlessly clean. It is situated on the beach and there are hammocks and sun loungers scattered around for guests to relax on. The restaurant serves the best food I've eaten in the Philippines, with a wide variety, all freshly made. The yoga area is well equipped and perfectly positioned to watch the sunset and hear the waves, as you practice. Yesterday Kaisa took us (myself and five 'new friends') on a boat trip to a nearby sand bar called White Island. We had the opportunity to swim/snorkel in the crystal clear sea, before a yoga session - embracing nature... on the white sand, as the sun set before our eyes. It was magical! Kaisa's partner Arno runs the scuba diving side of the business and whilst I was there I gained my PADI Open Water certificate. Arno is a great instructor, he and his staff are very professional. I'm so grateful to Kaisa and Arno. They are very approachable with any questions you have, and respond quickly with good advice so you can tailor make your experience to get out of it what your mind & body needs.

    "I had a wonderful stay on Camiguin Island. It is a bit difficult to get to but it is worth it. I am new to yoga and was introduced to different types by Kaisa. She directs well and clearly. Once it was held on the beach, another time at a nearby cold springs. Yin yoga was a beautiful experience and my favorite in candlelit nature. She is always observant and helps our needs - being a life coach and meditation coach as well she understood why one time I couldn't help but burst into tears during a yoga session. I took life coaching and guided meditation as well with Kaisa. Nothing is ever forced so I could choose to do or not to do at any given moment. These sessions were also a life changing experience and I am grateful to Kaisa for her having guided me through so much stuff. It was almost as if she gently and lovingly held my hand while I tried to carefully step into a new phase of my life. Being so close to the calm sound of the ocean with almost nothing but the nature, I realized that this was the first time in years that I focused utterly and totally on myself, and I loved it. The new friendships made during the week will also remain special. We have shared some great conversations and laughs from all our countries."

    I had a wonderful stay in Action Geckos Resort when I had my Yoga Retreat at Re-Connect Discover. The facilities were wonderful, the food was great, and the place was very quiet and relaxing. The hosts -- Kaisa and Arno -- were very gracious and kind, offering help in every aspect of my trip, making sure that I had the most wonderful time during my stay. Moreover, they arranged for all my transportation needs as I went around the island of Camiguin. Lastly, Camiguin is the perfect place to go on a solo yoga retreat because not only are the teachers very good and accommodating, but the island offers a whole lot of activities that one can enjoy in between classes.

    My yoga/diving retreat - which I extended from five nights to ten while I was there – was everything I hoped it would be and more! The pace of each day was perfect. (Optional) early morning yoga, amazing breakfast (the food is so good!), out on the boat for a dive or two, more delicious food for lunch, a lazy afternoon in a shady hammock or on the beach (or out and about for a bit of island exploration), some more yoga (if you feel like doing the sunset session as well), then dinner in the open air restaurant just meters from the beach (I often ordered the grilled fish which they get fresh from the market for you the same day - so good!).

    The well-kept beach bungalows are delightful, and the mood of the place is easy and relaxed, but where Kaisa and Arno really stand out is in the exceptional care and attention given to every last detail of your stay - which combines to make it a really perfect experience. They will also happily give tips for loads of other things to do and places to go around the island.

    Dive instructor Arno is an excellent (and patient!) teacher, and his passion for diving is absolutely infectious. And the in-house yoga teacher when I was there (they host a different traveling teacher every month or two) tailored the classes brilliantly to my/our needs, and I gained so much knowledge and inspiration from her. I feel really fortunate to have had such individual attention from two really talented and dedicated teachers. Thanks, Kaisa and Arno and all of your amazing and happy staff, for making me so welcome and for looking after me so well. I definitely hope to be back some day!

    Very nice place to stay with good food and comfortable accommodation. We stayed almost all the time in the complex area and never got bored. The atmosphere is very relaxing and the yoga classes were great. Special mention to the diving course, it was an amazing experience!

    We have just returned from our wonderful stay at reconnect discover in the beautiful island of Camiguin, Philippines. I would like to sincerely thank the guys at the resort for helping us enjoy this lovely stay. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. Everything was so relaxed and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I couldn’t recommend this place highly enough. 11 out of 10! Hopefully see you again soon.

    I signed up for the Become-a-Diver retreat, and Arno showed a lot of patience! He explains things clearly and makes you feel very comfortable. He is a good teacher and very easy to communicate with, also he has a great sense of humor and personality. When diving in open water I felt very secure to do so with Arno by my side. I have finished the retreat and now am the proud owner of a PADI Open Water diving certification.

    We participated in a mini yoga retreat with Kaisa. Neither of us had been regularly practicing yoga, but we could easily manage the 2 yoga classes per day. Kaisa oversaw every detail of our retreat experience and pre-empted our every need and desire. It was enhanced by the wooden beach cottage accommodation, fresh fruit juices and friendly service. We returned home intent on making yoga part of our wellness routine and have been inspired to take action and make changes following our life coaching conversations.

    I enrolled in the Yoga Mini Retreat for Beginners. Kaisa adjusted everything to my capabilities and after our first yoga session I already felt more relaxed and I forgot about my busy work schedule back home. Kaisa could relate where I was coming from and after some lovely chats she inspired me to change up my game a bit back home and has given me motivation to continue yoga in the future. The location was perfect for this retreat also!

    Yoga with Kaisa is an awesome unique experience. Breathtaking in the way she makes you feel. Inspiring because of the view you have towards the beach. And amazing how yoga combined with the sounds of the ocean and nature can calm you down, focusing only to yourself. Kaisa has a loving, caring and professional touch to yoga and in her classes you will learn not only how to yoga but learn something from yourself.
