Retreat location

El Nido

Remember the movie 'Beach' with Leonardo di Caprio? Apparently Alex Garland's book was originally inspired by the beauty of El Nido. Endless white beaches, crystal clear waters and an underwater world, that will take your breath away. A destination that truly looks like paradise. The beauty of El Nido is hard to describe, you have to see the place with your own eyes. The highlight of your stay are the island hopping tours showcasing nine islands for two days and a six-day yoga retreat.

Puerto Princesa

Aptly nicknamed the city in a forest. It's been named the Philippines' cleanest and greenest city.

Manila

It is the capital of the Philippines.
