We are thrilled to be at The Hawaii Island Retreat for our second year and those of you who came last year know just how amazing this location truly is. Nestled on the cliffs of North Kohala on the Big Island of Hawaii, the retreat is an oasis of beauty, intention and luxury. With incredible eco-boutique hotel room accommodations, private stylish yurts and even “swanky” dorms, it is really is the only West African drum and dance conference of it’s kind. This year in addition to the gorgeous yoga and drum class space, we will be adding a large outdoor tent area for dancing on the Hawaiian earth. All retreat participants have full access to The Hawaii Island Retreat’s 50 lush acres of oceanfront trails, a beautiful bay and endless places to lounge and enjoy the relaxation of Hawaii.
Yoga is offered each morning and then 4 classes in either dance or drumming are offered throughout the day. All your meals are prepared on site using fresh local ingredients from the Big Island, breakfast, lunch and dinner. Night time provides an opportunity to engage in activities such as: bonfire by the cliffs, cultural night with the artists, DJ pool party, enjoying the facilities with new friends or relaxing in the many luxurious places throughout the retreat center, including your fabulous yurt/dorm. :)
November 8th there will be a performance at The Hub performance theatre in Hawi Town, with special discount prices for Merveilles Participants at their Inn. (email us for more info)
