There will be daily fitness classes available for you to attend (all optional), some days will have 3 classes, and some days will have more adventures. The planned adventures (if you choose to take part) are a bike ride to the natural springs in Therma, here you can take some time to relax in therapeutic waters before cycling back, and there is an incredible hike up to the highest point on the island to see the incredible views.

Choosing a fitness class for you

Each day has a range of Fitness classes to choose from. You can pick and choose what you would like to do. You could start the day with an incredible Yoga session, and later on try one of our BoxFit classes or TRX classes, concluding the day with a sunset Pilates class. The schedule will be published at the beginning of the week and you will be able to make your own schedule. Each day you will find something different, so you will be sure to have variety and no room for boredom. Do not worry if you have never tried the class before as we have expert and experienced instructors to show you the way.

Hiking

Guided Hike to the highest point on the Island

Dikeos mountain is the highest peak being 846m. We will set off from the mountain village of Zia, where we will head upwards, taking an incredible route set in nature. On the way, you will experience some photo-worthy views. Once you reach the summit, you will be able to enjoy what the peak has to offer, on a perfectly clear day it is possible to see all the way to Samos Island which is about 90km away. Other neighbouring islands include Pserimos, Kalymnos, and Plati, you will also see neighbouring Turkey. The hike to the top is around 2hours, challenging in parts but not unachievable. On the way back down you will have the chance to explore the village of Zia, the shops and cafes.

Hiking

Cycling

Guided Bike Ride to The Natural Therapeutic Springs of Kos

Therma beach is between 16km & 20km from our retreat locations. Therma is exceptional, due to the hot water coming from the mountain which is beneficial for visitors. The hot springs are a real treasure containing elements such as Potassium, Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium, Sulfur and Chlorine ideal treatments for rheumatism, arthritis and any gynaecological-related issues. The Bike ride itself is approximately 32-40km there and back, it takes you down some magical roads where you can witness some incredible views. It will be taken at a pace that is comfortable or challenging enough for the group.
For those not overly confident cycling these distances we have the option to upgrade to an E-Bike, making those overly challenging parts that little easier - ask for more details.

Some of the rooms have terraces/balconies allowing you to enjoy your morning coffee/tea in private (if you wish) and all have private bathrooms.

Each studio is very spacious, comfortably sleeping up to 3 people. Each has its own balcony, ensuite and kitchenette. The balconies have an amazing view of the sea, there is literally no better place to chill on an evening. The owners of the studios are incredibly friendly and also own two restaurants within the same complex. We will be sitting down for breakfast each morning in one of the restaurants. They both serve delicious traditional Greek food.

On all 3 Retreat options, we include a delicious nutritious breakfast with locally produced/sourced ingredients to set you up for the day's activities.
We also include a meal on arrival as we know travelling can be quite tiring.
On Sunday we will get together for either a BBQ or a restaurant meal (location dependent)
And, on Friday we will head to Kos Town for an amazing meal in one of the local restaurants.
Lunches and evening meals are not provided as we are surrounded by too many amazing local restaurants, we would like to encourage you to absorb the Greek culture and delicious food.

Kos Island

Kos is one of the most loved islands of the Dodecanese

Island is known as “The island of Hippocrates” for having given birth to the most famous doctor in history.
Kos is 43 km long and 2 km wide at the narrowest point, up to a maximum of 6 km at its largest point. It is the third island of the Dodecanese for size and the second for the population. Its close proximity to the coasts of Turkey and more precisely to the ancient city of Halicarnassus, now known as Bodrum, makes it particularly fascinating as it offers an interesting combination of eastern and western elements. Even though Kos is known for its tourism, it has done well in maintaining its soul. Escaping from the tourists is easily done, and you will always manage to find a hidden beach.

Kos Island

Climate

Mediterranean Weather

From April to November, a period during which the rains are very rare, the island offers a Mediterranean climate of excellence that gives the possibility to fully enjoy the sea and many sunny days.
At the same time, there is a summer wind present that allows even the high temperatures to feel much more comfortable, enabling everyone to stay fairly active through the hotter months. There is a small chance of rain in the months of September and October, but this usually disperses within a few hours.

Climate

Accessibility

The retreat is not suitable for those unable to cycle or hike or engage in physical activities, however, provisions can be made for some disabilities, contact us directly to discuss whether we can accommodate you sufficiently.

Eco Practices

We support an eco-friendly environment, one being your primary mode of transport for the week is either bicycle or foot. We also encourage recycling and a minimal plastic approach. We fully discourage the use of single-use plastic, and your host will be talking a lot about her journey with natural products and giving you the local knowledge on where to find the best natural products on the island including skin care and foods, you may even find a little natural gift in your welcome pack.
