Accommodation

Your home for the duration of the retreat is a boutique oceanfront eco-villa, where you will be cocooned in five-star understated luxury. The retreat villa is set in a remote location against a dramatic landscape of sandy white beaches, limestone cliffs, fynbos flora and dunes lapped by the warm Indian Ocean. The villa, perched on top of limestone cliffs overlooking the sea, is completely off the grid and has been booked for your own private use.

You will be looked after by the villa’s discreet staff, including your own hosts, private guide, butler, chef, and housekeepers. The villa accommodates eight adults in four luxurious king-size private suites (which can be made into twin beds), each with their own ocean views and ensuite bathroom.

Facilities include:

  • A sparkling, heated pool
  • Garden and patios with phenomenal views
  • Library
  • Open plan lounge and dining areas
  • Outdoor wood-fired bath or jacuzzi
  • Romantic fireplaces in the communal areas and in each suite
  • Study
  • Wine cellar

Program

So much more than just a yoga retreat, you will get the opportunity to experience the natural richness and beauty of this undiscovered gem in one of South Africa’s most beautiful coastal reserves.

Yoga

A grounding yet creative yoga and meditation journey will allow you to disconnect in order to reconnect with yourself. The sessions, led by Leigh, will focus on stimulating and balancing the seven chakras and will be held outdoors on the verandah or beach (weather permitting) to allow you to engage with the natural elements of earth, water, air, fire, and space. Each day will generally comprise two themed yoga sessions - a dynamic morning class before breakfast and a more Restorative evening class before supper - and one meditation or yoga Nidra session to inspire deep relaxation and connection. The yoga and meditation sessions are open and accessible to all levels of practitioners, including beginners.

Massage or reflexology

Karen will treat you two personalized 60-minute massages of your choice (holistic, sports, pregnancy, or post-partum massage) or reflexology (on request). Each session will begin with a personal consultation to discuss your health history, preferences and goals in order to tailor the treatment to your needs. Your treatments will be carried out outside (weather permitting) or in the dedicated treatment room in the villa overlooking the aromatic fynbos enveloping the property. The soothing ocean sounds and breeze will help de-stress and rejuvenate you and will deepen your relaxation.

Adventure activities

On arrival, your group will decide together how you would like to spend your days during your stay. Generally, two adventure activities will be organized for each day (including four-by-four fynbos and wildlife safaris, whale-watching, sand boarding, guided mountain biking, snorkeling, sunbathing, sundowners on the sand dunes, etc.). All activities are completely optional and you will always have the choice to rather take some time out on your own and relax in the villa, at the heated pool, or down at the private beach.

Location

Your journey will take place in one of Africa’s most beautiful yet lesser-known coastal reserves, the De Hoop Nature Reserve, on the world-renowned garden and whale routes, just over three hours' drive from Cape Town, South Africa. A world heritage site, the reserve is home to one of the largest marine protected areas on the continent and the largest conserved area of lowland fynbos (the name given to the unique floral kingdom found only on the southern tip of Africa).

It is a whale-watching haven with southern right whales migrating to the reserve’s shallow coastal basins for the calving and nursing season from the middle of July to November. The choice of location for the retreat provides the perfect base for guests to extend their trip to explore more of South Africa’s staggering beauty, wilderness, and diverse cultures with a trip to the breathtaking Cape Winelands, a visit to see Namaqualand daisies, or traveling north for a game safari.

Food

Delicious and nourishing meals, snacks, and drinks will be prepared by the villa’s private chef, using locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients. Meals can be tailored to suit an individual’s dietary requirements. Each meal is treated as an occasion and will be eaten ‘al fresco’ as much as the beautiful South African weather allows. You can personally select wines from the wine cellar to accompany and complement their meals. All drinks are included with the exception of the villa's 'reserve list'.
