Healthfulness Yoga Retreat Zanzibar, 22nd – 29th October

Our annual healthfulness retreat is the perfect place to recharge, reflect and refocus for 7 nights. Held in a beautiful beach front villa in Jambiani, a coastal village on the South East of the island, let the Indian Ocean’s waves wake you up in the morning and put you to sleep at night.

Eat the freshest locally grown produce from the village and taste the catch of the day from the fisherman from the turquoise sea. Start you day with a revitalising yoga practice and build your day with inspiring workshops, classes and trips. Or opt for quiet time journaling, painting or relaxing around the pool. Make heartfelt connections with fellow kindred spirits looking for that experience of a lifetime.

The town is a close-knit vibrant village made up of artisans and fisherman. A friendly, welcoming community, where you’ll here the say “Jambo” hello each time you pass a native. Along the beach you’ll find a string of boutique accommodations, hotels and restaurants catering for the now growing tourists or expat visitors.

Due to the moon’s rotation, during the day the tide will pull back as far as 200m from the beach and you’ll see women using that time to plant and lay their seaweed traps. Around 4pm when the Indian ocean waves returns, the local fisherman emerges with the daily catch. This can all be seen from the backyard of the 7 bedroom private villa we will call home during our time in Zanzibar.

The island has many influences, mainly African, Arabic and East Indian. This will be evident in the cuisine, dress and building designs. The official language spoken is Swahili, though most people speak English as Tanzania was a former British colony. Zanzibar is a muslim country and as open and liberal as the locals are, modesty is advised when dressing (cover shoulders and dress to the knee when outside, in the villa you may dress however you feel).

Accomodation

This gorgeous Italian owned architectural wonder will make you gasp as you enter the large antique doors. The Arabic and Mediterranean influenced villa has been designed with every comfort and view in mind. All the en-suite bedrooms are air conditioned, netted doors and fans over the beds. The villa is fully staffed and has night time security.

There are plenty of quite spaces in the garden and around the property for private times. The wooden decked salt water pool is definitely advised to cool down during the heat throughout the day. The sun is fully blazed from 8am in the morning through till around 4pm!. All the en-suite bedrooms are air conditioned, with netted doors and fans over the beds.

Cuisine

The private chef and kitchen staff are truly amazing. They always create a scrumptious healthy menu for the event. The chef sources his produce from local farmers, fisherman and markets to offer the freshest and natural meals during the stay. A pescatarian menu will be offered with vegetarian and vegan options. Coconut water, milks and oils will be at the base of the week long menu, along with other local herbs, spices and roots.

A welcome dinner will be scheduled for the arrival day at 6.30pm and most international flights arrive all day and night long. Therefore we advise to book an arrival flight in the afternoon as the check in time at the venue is 3pm. Kisauni Airport is approx 60 mins away and we will have our staff waiting to collect our guests with refreshments after a long journey.
