 Immerse yourself in the luxurious tropical paradise of white sand and warm turquoise waters for a week of self-care and restoration at the oceanfront Bougainvillea Barbados, in Christ Church, Barbados.

Join us for an unforgettable wellness experience, where all-bodies and beginners are welcome. 

Whether you're a solo traveller, or seeking an experience to share with a friend or partner, BARBADOS BLISS exemplifies both inclusivity and acceptance.

Your 7-night 8-day retreat will be the perfect blend of yoga, mindfulness, self-development, and authentic Barbadian culture.


WHAT MAKES

BARBADOS A UNIQUE

LOCATION FOR

A RETREAt?

Step off the plane to sounds of gentle steel pan music, where your retreat family will be waiting to greet you, for a colourful, 20 minute drive to the Bougainvillea Barbados on the South-West coast of Barbados.

Surrounded by colourful tropical flowers and the gentle flow of the Caribbean sea, the peaceful white sand beach sets the perfect location for our morning mindfulness sessions, and sits just steps away from our beachfront yoga practice location.

The Bougainvillea Beach Resort is an exquisite family-owned resort that exudes luxury and rejuvenation, with true Bajan flare.

The expansive grounds of the resort maintain an intimacy, that creates an idyllic backdrop for a week of connection, re-centering and bliss.

If you’ve ever been to Barbados, you know that this is an island that is easy to fall in love with.

Only a 5 hour plane ride from Toronto, Barbados is not your typical, mass-market retreat location.

Barbados radiates warmth and relaxation. While the island is known for its world-class tourism, the welcoming nature of the Bajan (Barbadian) community at the Bougainvillea Beach Resort, feels both personal and authentic and creates a genuinely welcoming vibe to visitors.

If you’re seeking a wellness experience that blends yoga + mindfulness, with nature and a vibrant cultural immersion, this is the place to look.

BOUGAINVILLEA BEACH RESORT

FOOD + DRINK:

We all know that one of the most important aspects of a retreat is nourishment through food.

Bougainvillea’s professional chef’s create and design some of the best meals on the island.

In collaboration with Bougainvillea’s chefs, we’ve designed a breakfast and dinner package, focusing on the health-conscious, high-quality food choices that Bougainvillea offers each of their guests on a daily basis.

Part of our vision for our Barbados Bliss Retreat is to build our community through enjoying two shared dining experiences each day.

Retreat Guests will enjoy exceptional and varied, two-course meals, from one of Bougainvillea’s stunning seaside restaurants.

Guests will have the luxury of individually choosing appetizers and entrees that suit their dining preferences for each meal.

Local Barbados cuisine, gluten-free and vegetarian options available. Please contact us to talk about meal choices if you are vegan or have any other dietary preferences.

Each room at Bougainvillea Beach Resort features a kitchen or kitchenette, for lunches and snacks.


THE KARMA SPA:

As a BARBADOS BLISS retreat guest, you will enjoy a 60 minute massage, as part of your retreat package, at the newly expanded Karma Spa, a professional wellness centre, created to support your week of renewal and restoration.

WHAT can I expect at the barbados bliss retreat?

community . connection . inclusivity . acceptance . support .

BARBADOS BLlSS is a full experience. From the moment you step off of the plane, you can expect to receive the genuine kindness and care, and so present in Barbados culture.

You’ll be greeted at the airport for your 20-minute drive to the Bougainvillea Beach Resort on Saturday, November, 2nd, 2019.

After you’ve had time to immerse yourself in the pristine ocean or soak up your first sunset from your personal terrace, we’ll meet for our first retreat dinner on Saturday evening.

We value nourishment and rest, and so, encourage you to enjoy a luxurious sleep, before we begin our mindfulness and yoga practices on Sunday morning.

Each morning will begin with a guided mindfulness session on the beach, and an uplifting and rejuvenating yoga practice, designed to be accessible and nurturing for both first-time yoga practitioners and expert yogis. Our practices are focused on safe and mindful, restorative movement.

We’ll enjoy full breakfast, curated by Bougainvillea’s own professional chefs, at the resort’s seaside Calabash Cafe.

Afternoons will be yours to explore. Delve deeply into your own relaxation with long hours reading on the beach and immersing yourself in the warm Caribbean Sea. Or, choose to discover the rugged east coast of Barbados, take bicycle tours of the island and sample local artists and food.

Included in your retreat will be an afternoon of swimming with sea turtles and a mindfulness session at lush Hunte’s Gardens.

Also included in your retreat is a 60-minute massage at Bougainvillea’s Karma Wellness Centre.

We’ll meet back at the resort for early evening self-development workshops and a restorative sunset yoga practice.

You’ll enjoy nightly individually-selected, 3-course dinners at Bougainvillea’s Calabash Cafe or Siam Bar & Restaurant, before a rejuvenating sleep.
