Our practical, clean accommodation steps from the beach and delicious food is a vital part of your Yoga Rocks holiday experience.
Can I get a cup of tea/bite to eat anytime?
Yes, there is a separate kitchen for the guests which is always stocked with coffee, teas, various fruit, oranges to squeeze, nuts, honey, homemade yoghurt and more. You can help yourself anytime. A homely spot with a terrace overlooking Agios Pavlos bay.
Can I have a single room?
We have a limited number of single rooms available. If one is available you will pay a €200 single supplement on most retreats. In practice it is often nice to share with another guest; we sensitively arrange the room sharing.
Is there any beer/wine/spirits and can I smoke?
We ask our guests not to drink alcohol at the retreat and to smoke outside the perimeter. There is a close cafe and taverna as well as another cafe on the beach where you can have a drink. Many guests have a drink at the Friday Cretan Banquet to celebrate the end of the week.
Is the retreat vegetarian?
Yes, we are fully vegetarian with no fish or meat at the retreat itself. We provide a well balanced and delicious menu. Most of our guests are not vegetarian but find the cuisine one of the highlights of the holiday. We were happy to be recognised by Yoga Journal as one of three foodie retreats worldwide in their food issue. At the Friday night Cretan banquet there is normally some fresh fish. You can always pop to the taverna should you have any extra needs.
Do you cater for gluten free, vegan, raw and other special diets?
We can cater for just about any special diet, but please let us know in advance for anything except a vegan diet that we cater for as a matter of course at each meal. This way we can discuss options in advance and we can stock up on what we need to feed you well.
Is the food organic?
While not entirely organic, much of it is. On any retreat it’s likely all the fruit and veg will have been produced on the island and we prepare all food fresh from these local ingredients. Yoghurt and bread are made at the retreat and no tinned, preserved food is used. Click if you want more info on the food at Yoga Rocks
What is a typical room like?
All the rooms have a balcony with a sea view, air con and a nice bathroom. They are fresh and spacious – lovely to relax in.
Do you supply towels?
We provide hand towels and a bath towel for the room. We ask you to bring your own beach towel. Thanks.
Are there clothes washing facilities?
Most people find for one week they have enough clothes and normally too many! However, we will always provide a bucket and washing powder if needed. We do have a washing machine you might be able to use, especially if you are staying longer than a week, or have particular needs.
