Structuring a Retreat

We can either:

  • Provide the venue and contacts to allow you to organise your retreat as you wish, based on hiring the property outright for your exclusive use;
  • Or partner with us with shared risk and effort where you provide your specialist instructor skills and attendees, and we provide the majority of the support in country to make it all happen.

Either way, we are very happy to assist with your onward marketing. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements
