What sets us apart from other retreats?
We’re the only health & wellness retreat that offers professional support not just during but also after a visit.

We believe working on the mental and emotional aspect of body challenges is just as important as working on the physical body.
We bring together a community of like-minded people who want to recharge and make positive changes in their lives.
Plus the settings of our retreat are just gorgeous… fresh mountain air, bamboo forest, waterfalls and so much more!
