Are you looking for a healthy escape in April this year? I will be heading to Crete with the HHH team to co-host their fitness and wellness retreat. This Cretan paradise is semi secluded, private and peaceful, and the beachfront location provides a tranquil escape from the hectic city lifestyle.
The team at HHH are experts in running retreats. I was a guest at their Kefalonia retreat in 2015 and I had the best time ever! At the time I was overworked and low on energy and finding it hard to lose weight after moving to London. After 7 days of outdoor exercise and amazing detox food, I was back feeling great.
This April, I’m teaching yoga at the Easter 2017 Fitness Health Yoga Retreat and would love for you to come too. There is a 5 day or 7 day retreat option over the 13th – 20th of April. Here are some more retreat details:
Located on the largest Greek Island in Greece, Crete is the perfect location for a fitness, health and yoga retreat. With stunning beaches, great hiking terrain and access to locally sourced food, you won’t ever want to leave. It definitely is the most distinctive and beautiful of all of the Greek Islands. The variety of the landscape, plentiful mountains and numerous gorges, it’s an island worth exploring.
The Maravel Star Art Hotel is a BRAND NEW hotel which opened in 2016. It is situated in the middle of an extended sandy beach 7km east of Rethymno and practically on the centre of the northern coast of Crete. This new hotel is designed to meet all the parameters and features of a small and especially friendly lodging in a quiet and pleasant environment where privacy of the guest is of extreme importance.
The whole complex is located right on the sea front and its privileged position between the infinity of the blue water northward and rolling hills of olive groves southward offers an ideal experience to the HHH guest.
There are 25 rooms – 15 ocean front view and 10 pool view, and each room has an en suite bathroom, hair dryer, hot and cold air conditioning, free wifi, local Cretan toiletries and balcony or patio.
No matter if your vegetarian, gluten free, dairy free or a meat lover, you are going to love chef Alan Wichert’s meals.
