All guests will be staying at Camiguin Action Geckos Dive and Adventure Resort. The accommodation will be either in a beach cottage, beach front bungalow, or in a traveler room with fan (traveler rooms are sharing a separate toilet and shower), depending on your choice. The resort is situated on a beach front, and all accommodations are just few steps from the sandy beach.

The beach cottages are spacious with a private bathroom, hot and cold showers, and a large terrace. The beach front bungalows are semi-detached sharing the terrace, but with their own private bathroom with hot and cold showers. The traveler rooms are situated on the second floor of the main building, close to the open air yoga floor. These are private rooms that share the toilet and a separate shower. Altogether, there are three traveler rooms.

This solo yoga retreat will give you the opportunity to be the boss of your own schedule! You can enjoy unlimited yoga classes, two complimentary massages, and a choice between a private island tour for one day, or a motorcycle rental for two days if you would rather explore the island on your own.

The beauty of this solo yoga retreat is that you get to plan on how you want to build up your days. Yoga is offered twice daily at 7.30 a.m. and 5.30 p.m. You can sign up for as many classes as you wish! For the rest of the activities, all you have to do is inform Reconnect Discover to schedule your massage or explore the islands.

You will be able to choose between a private island tour for one day, or a motorcycle rental for two days if you would rather explore the island on your own.

    "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 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 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."

    ""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."
