ACCOMMODATIONS + LOCATION
Our retreat takes place at a gorgeous villa, Casa da Mare which sits at the edge of Jambiani, a village along the east coast of the island of Zanzibar. The modern style and the Swahili style are elegantly combined, both in the structure and in the furnishings. The property consists of three separate buildings, connected by quiet patios and serene living spaces, all surrounded by a lush tropical garden. Relax in full luxury under a grass Swahili pavillion while listening to the Indian ocean. The villa will be just ours for the week and there will be plenty of gorgeous areas to relax, unwind and recharge in this magnificent slice of paradise. The rooms are decorated in gorgeous style with local inspiration at every corner. All of the luxury amenities you will need for your special week are included such as wifi, luxurious linens and towels, air conditioning and divine en-suite baths.
A delicious and hearty breakfast is included daily at our wonderful location. Fresh fruits, juices, eggs, local breads and heavenly sweets are all part of our daily post-yoga meal. You can choose to eat inside in the special dining room or take your yummy meal outside on the patio or by the pool. Daily dinners are included as part of the package.You will be captured by the flavours, colours and scents from the kitchen, a heavenly blend of Swahili and Western recipes with touches of Italian. An afternoon tea is also included as part of our package to refresh and relax before our afternoon yoga session.
YOGA + ACTIVITIES
Twice per day we will practice yoga on the beautiful area by the pool or at the beach with the sounds of only the Indian Ocean and birds to accompany us! Your host, Shari will guide you through a vinyasa flow and during the week we will include a yin and restorative session. As always, Shari will listen to what the group needs and adjust accordingly for the best yoga experience! There are 2 incredible excursions on our special retreat:
SPICES TOUR: The spices tour is a unique opportunity to learn about the soul of Zanzibar. For nearly two centuries the spices are a key part of the economy of the island. We will go with our private guide to a “botanical garden” where we'll be shown herbs, spices, fruits and other products of the earth with fascinating descriptions of how they are used and we will relish in their exotic scents and flavours.
SEA SAFARI: We will take a private boat where we cross a seascape dotted with small atolls, uninhabited islands and white sandbanks. We will then dock at a small island where under a gorgeous canopy we will enjoy a lunch of the freshest grilled fish, shellfish and fruit.
