Program

This retreat is exclusive, luxurious, empowering, life-changing, and magical. Upon waking, your day starts with a beautiful sunrise SUP yoga meditation and a lesson. Then, enjoy a delicious bountiful buffet breakfast of fresh local produce follows with a drink of a crisp fresh pineapple juice or a freshly husked coconut.

After breakfast, the choice is yours. Go snorkeling in the Hilton’s mesmerizing cerulean lagoon. Avid snorkelers go as far to say “it’s the best place in the whole world they have ever snorkeled.”

Treat yourself to a spa treatment or soak up the sun or nest under a coconut tree with a good book. After a healthy lunch, the group will set out on another adventure. One day, you will do a big paddle finishing with a swim with sharks and stingrays.

Another day will be a big walk up one of Moorea’s highest mountains. The day winds down with a sunset meditation on a paddleboard in the middle of the lagoon, before enjoying a healthy dinner of fresh local fish caught that day and healthy local produce, as you toast your coconut water to experiencing another day in paradise.

Swim with sharks and stingrays. There are few places Charlotte visited in the world with the spellbinding shades of blue, sapphire, and aqua as Moorea’s spectacular lagoon. With such pristine clear water, swimming with sharks and stingrays is an absolute must. She is an avid free diver who traveled all over the world and she’s never found a place better to swim with sharks or stingrays. It’s a truly surreal experience.

Experience a mountain walk to the Belvedere. The hikes in Moorea are among the best in the South Pacific. Get off the beaten track amongst pineapple plantations, a wide variety of fauna and flora and epic views with a climb to the Belvedere lookout.

Please note that the yoga lessons can be on the land and beach overlooking the ocean. Although if conditions permit, most if not all lessons, will take place on the water, this is what Charlotte specializes in.

Included excursions

During this retreat, you will enjoy a mountain walk to the Belvedere, swimming with sharks and stingrays, and underwater rock running.
