    The luxury accommodation nestles in the Wilderness with its breathtaking landscape of green mountains, beach, lagoon, and nature reserve. The studio

    overlooks the sea. The spacious bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and private balconies with views.

    Reflect and Renew's retreat creates a "time out of time" space, where you de-stress and let go off the year, it's struggles and challenges. It’s a time to find closure. To celebrate turning points, and joyous moments. A space to reconnect with your body, vitality and self, ground yourself and tune in to your deep inner voice. Reflect and Renew invite you to return to the things that are important through a unique and embodied therapeutic process.
