Upcoming Retreats & Workshops
The Lotus Retreat offers Signature Retreats as well as Pop-Up Workshops.
Our intimate retreat spaces offering a holistic and personal approach to the wellbeing of your body, mind and soul. At the Lotus Retreat, we recognize that everyone has different wellness goals and are at different levels of their spiritual awakening. It's our mission and passion to help you achieve them.
Whether you are being nudged to digitally detox or answering the call to retreat your spirit, we invite you to join us on one of our uniquely curated retreat experience, leaving behind the chaos of daily life to immerse yourself in the tranquility and healing energy of nature and return to who you truly are.
When you’re heart is broken and your soul is ready to unravel, whether you’re feeling stressed, tired , overworked, or just need a weekend away to relax - we are here to hold a safe and compassionate space to help you heal and feel cared for.
It takes an extraordinary kind of place to make you feel like you are being held in the arms of Mother Nature.
Umami is such a place.
A place that reminds us about our core values and why we hold them so dear to our hearts.
A place of stillness that allows us to ask ourselves pertinent question of how much of ourselves we lose to the hustle and bustle of the world around us.
From the moment you arrive, it’s as if time slows down and what makes our Retreat so special is that the entire space has been designed to allow you to experience the ease of well - being.

Accommodation, Food & Activities
The understated and tasteful off-grid stone pods are organically built from the natural rock provided by the surrounding mountains. They have been designed to be a place where you wake up to the simplicity of life - where simply breathing in nature’s rhythms is a meditation.
Each pod is individually situated in its own unique space in Nature. Ensuring privacy, silence and deep sense of safe solitude.
Their thick walls and thatched roofs help to maintain an even temperature in summer and winter, giving you a sanctuary-like feel.
Single and shared accommodation available.
Our Delicious Vegetarian Cuisine
Plant based vegetarian meals prepared by our chef.
Ingredients are locally sourced, fresh and where possible, organic.
All meals are cooked using whole foods, and free of preservatives, additives and refined sugar
We use meditation, movement and nature to help you to connect to yourself and to experience the universe with all your senses.
You will start your day with sun salutations on the yoga deck overlooking the lake.
When you’re not dipping into the tranquil water or soaking up the gentle rays of the sun on the water’s edge, you’ll be traversing the mountain trails surrounded by flora and fauna or enjoying a relaxing massage.
