FAMILY RETREAT

DATES

August 2nd- 8th 2021

 

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT TO SEE AND DO

It is with great glee that we announce our first retreat designed for families seeking a unique, wholesome and holistic travel experience. A number of you have asked and suggested, so we are giving the people what they want: a special itinerary appropriate for children of all ages, and a slower pace to make things easier for everyone. 

You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy Jamaica’s lush and calming green nature and to swim in refreshing waterfalls, beaches and lagoons. We’ll hike up the famous Blue Mountains to visit a humble and welcoming Rasta community and learn some inspiring, little-known history about Jamaica and its beautiful, resilient people. You’ll also get to delight in an exquisite five-course farm-to-table meal and experience at Stush in the Bush organic farm.

This won’t be about all-day tanning, beachside braids and gift shop Rasta hats (not that there’s anything wrong with that); we just want to rejuvenate you in a different way. After all, we travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us, right? We want to share the glory, struggles and beauty of this island —  a BEAST of a nation, as you will find out!
