Yoga Retreat Greece – Booking Form

PLEASE NOTE: This Retreat is not open for bookings until 2020 – but read through for a taste of what’s to come and comments from those who attended

I went to Greece hoping to have a life changing experience and I did – it was so much more than expected. I loved the people, the food and the environment. The only complaint I have is that I ever left .

Amazing experience, new country, new friends, new experiences

Carla Pon

It was a complete spoil, so relaxing, and even only 5 days, felt like 2 weeks

Getting to Athens

Flights from Johannesburg

We suggest either Turkish Airlines via Turkey or Emirates (Discovery Rewards) via Dubai – please be aware that there are no direct flights to Athens from South Africa. Our recommendation is to get to Athens the day before i.e. Wednesday 15 May. The reason is the ferry to the islands may not run on time during off-season – better safe than sorry! Also take into account layover time in Dubai or Istanbul. Sometimes interconnecting flights have a delay of 8 hours.

Flights from Europe and elsewhere

We have no recommendations since there are a lot more options within Europe and elsewhere – but we do suggest getting to Athens the day before – i.e. Wednesday 15 May 2019.

Ferry to Kythnos

You are allowed to bring your own refreshments onto the ferry. There are restaurants and bars available but the prices are typically very high. We suggest buying water, fruit, nuts and snacks at a local supermarket in Athens or Piraues beforehand. A rough estimate of supermarket prices:  €6 will get you (more or less) – 1.5l water, apple, pear, slab of chocolate, cheese and crackers 

WiFi is available to purchase on the ferry ride and this is usually between €3-5. Purchasing a sim card is also an offer in Athens, but there is free Wifi available at the hotel in Kythnos.

Hotel Amenities

  • Free Wifi
  • Meals: Breakfast included only. Lunch and Dinner on the island: A meal can cost you anything from €10-25  depending how extravagant your palette is. The portions are generous and ideal for sharing.
  • Kitchenette: Since your room will have a kitchenette why not explore local Greek delicacies from the local bakery and supermarkets for lunch and enjoy a delicious Greek meze dinner at one of the many local tavernas.
  • A bottle of water from a restaurant can cost anything from 50c – €1-  but from a supermarket in Athens only 16c.
  • Beer at a taverna around €3.5 and a cocktail around €5.
  • Yiannis at Porto Klaras hotel will help us scout out the best local Tavernas. Many are right on the water’s edge!
