Join Mandy Parkin in a full moon, full power yoga and mindfulness retreat at Watamu Treehouse. This unique retreat center provides the perfect natural environment to practice yoga and connect with all there is. With almost 360-degree views of the sea and forest, yoga at the Treehouse is an experience you should not miss!
Watamu Treehouse consists of two towers, the North tower and the South tower, linked by bridges, stairways, and ramps. It also has a cool pool, which is shared by both towers.
This tower has three double bedrooms, each one with its own balcony, toilet, and shower. Two of the bedrooms have beautiful 360-degree views of the sea and forest and all of Watamu, including the sunrise and sunset. The third bedroom does not face the sea but has an incredible view of the forest and sunset. Additional sleeping areas are available, and the tower will hold a maximum of 8 people. It also has a kitchen, living/dining room, and rooftop lounge area. There are multiple dining areas at all levels as well.
This tower has four bedrooms, each of which has at least two beds, self-contained bathrooms, balconies, and private dining. All rooms overlook the sea and sunrise, and three of the rooms look back to the sunset. The rooms are let on a room-by-room basis, where you choose between bed and breakfast, half-board or full-board, for ultimate convenience.
With the help of a variety of special teachers, the retreats combine yoga, meditation, and relaxation with health, adventure, and nature. Most retreats have a sunrise session on the beach right in front of the house.
A yoga instructor for 25 years, Mandy aims to facilitate personal empowerment. Her experience in the health, wellness, and fitness area has been gleaned from writing, publishing, and event management to yoga, meditation, and mindfulness instruction. Having completed two courses in mindfulness training with Smart Foundation in Brighton, she teaches mindfulness in schools and writes articles on any aspect of holistic health.
The retreat will take place at Watamu Treehouse in Watamu, Kenya. It is situated on one of the most picturesque stretches of Watamu beach. It is ideally located right opposite the coral gardens of the marine park, with no large hotels nearby, only private residences. Built high in the trees, its unique architecture affords a 360-degree panorama of the Indian Ocean coastline on one side and native forest on the other.
|Activities ||General ||Services|
If you are renting on a self-catering basis, you can bring your own food for the cook to prepare, but if you choose not to, daily deliveries of fresh seafood and produce and anything from the local supermarket can be arranged. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, cooker, oven, blender, deep-freeze, plus a good range of utensils and cookware. As this is also a family home, you will find high quality crockery, cutlery, and glassware in the cupboards.
There are so many activities offered in the immediate vicinity. Those with young children might find it difficult to get off the white sandy beach, as it is ideal for building sandcastles and beachcombing in the reef pools and sandspits.
Older kids can choose from kitesurfing a few meters from the house, windsurfing and canoeing in the next cove, or some of the best scuba diving and deep-sea fishing in Kenya. Kitesurfing at Che Shale, just north of Malindi, can also be arranged using your own equipment.
Guests of all ages can enjoy snorkeling around coral heads just off the beach or in nearby Mida Creek. They can also visit the Arabuko Sokoke Forest, the Gede Ruins, the Snake Park, or the award-winning Butterfly Farm, as well as go shopping or surfing in Malindi or simply take long walks or swims along the uninterrupted beach.
Other activities that can be arranged from the house include dhow trips up Mida Creek, dolphin trips, visits to the Gede Ruins and the Kipepeo Butterfly Project, trips to Watamu village, and traditional dancing evenings with the Giriamas, the indigenous people of the area.
Please book your flight to arrive at Malindi Airport (MYD) or at Moi International Airport (MBA). Transfer from and to this airport is available upon request.
