Fundamentally, serenity is an inside job - we intend to show you that when you come and visit.
In Greece, rooms are offered for solo occupancy and EVERYTHING is optional. Do as much or as little as you like.
In the UK, we're offering a variety of things to do, retreat-wise. Take a look!
The 'Retreat' concept is less about sack cloth and ashes and more about retreating to a slower pace of life. It's about finding some personal space to simply 'be'. Serenity Retreat provides solo travellers with an opportunity to stop the world and get off for a while...
Our main programme runs throughout May, June, Sepember and the first half of October on the Greek island of Lefkada. Our guests have been asking us for something more local and so we now have further UK Weekend retreats (dates are being added all the time, so do bookmark the page....).
Becoming a Meditation and Mindfulness Teacher
We've had meditation and mindfulness at the heart of our holidays since our first season back in 2010. We know how popular meditation and mindfulness is at the moment and being able to teach it is a great gift. We offer a week long intensive teaching retreat in the UK. At the end of the week you'll be on your way to becoming a fully certified Zenways Meditation and Mindfulness Instructor. And as a side effect your own practice will develop. Everyone wins!

We Feature in The Times Top 50 Spa Holidays for 2014 (published Jan 4th, 2014):
"It’s great for solo travellers interested in spirituality and personal growth or just pure relaxation, and tends to attract people who have started to question their lives and who want to live more meaningfully".
Set up by Zen meditation teacher Kim Bennett, Serenity Retreats are aimed at solo travellers looking for self development. The week long retreat has an easy-breezy approach and while there are mindfulness walks, guided meditations and excursions on offer, nothing is compulsory. "Our emphasis is on giving our guests space", Bennett says. "Our accommodation is on the beach and we encourage guests do nothing other than watch the sea and the mountain for a restorative effect".
