ARE YOU IN?
I will meet you at the airport upon arrival and will send an information pack upon booking.
During our holiday retreat, you are under no obligation to do any activities. If you want to lie by the pool all day and drink cocktails you are most welcome to and we can meet up for lunch or dinner later. Or if you're keen on exploring more of Rarotonga, know that you don't have to be alone.
Personally for me, in our downtime, and there is lots of it, I intend to do lots of water-based activities such as snorkelling, swimming with turtles and hope to get in a fun scuba dive, have a go at Stand-Up paddleboarding, kayaking & of course swimming in the turquoise waters around the colourful reef and get to know the locals!
My goal with this retreat is to ensure that all women have an amazing time, meet new friends and experience the magic and culture of Rarotonga within a safe and fun, and at times spontaneous environment. There will be a maximum of 8 ladies on this trip as I believe a smaller group leads to stronger connections with each other.
I will organize all the day-to-day planning for you All you have to do is turn up and enjoy!
So what are you waiting for?? Harness your own magic and let's go!
This Rarotongan Island Escape retreat has been purposefully designed to allow you to truly connect with yourself and other like-minded mature ladies and experience those spontaneous magic moments that happen through travelling!
