Meet the Founders
& Your Guides

We’ve been there. Working long hours, rarely making time for ourselves, and not listening enough to our inner voice.

Mindfulness and nature were two things that allowed us to see our life from a more balanced perspective. We opened our eyes for the first time and realized that we postponed our true dreams for too long.

As soon as we created space for self-care and learned how to keep stress at healthy levels, creativity and courage flourished. We created Bliss & Stars to share our passions, our long-life learnings, and the experience of self-discovery by living with no fear.

DAILY FLOW

The days are designed to break routines and repetitive habits.

Our days will be filled with nature, meditation, mindful movement, yoga Nidra, and much more.

Nights are dedicated to restorative sleep. But before you lie to rest into our luxurious, 100% natural beds, we’ll take you on a stargazing journey, exploring constellation and galaxies.

We’ll count shooting stars and we’ll look deep into the night sky with South Africa’s biggest privately owned telescope.

There will also be plenty of time to relax by the pool or the river, listen to the birds sing, and watch the water flow.
