Bliss & Stars Retreat

Sleep RETREAT

Disconnect and Rest

Experience the REFRESHING SLEEP

The Sleep Retreat is a 3-night immersive experience to guide you to a good night’s sleep and to being rested.
We created a program that induces a deep state of relaxation using beneficial techniques like yoga Nidra, meditation, relaxing treatments, nutritious sleep-promoting food and beverages, mindful movement, and calming nature to make you fall asleep. Night after night.

Our program will rejuvenate and recharge a tired body and mind, reduce stress levels, and increase overall well-being.
And our team will help you to set the foundation for continuous and healthy everyday rest.

The Sleep Retreat At Bliss Amp Stars

MEET your GUIDES

Most people don’t understand how important sleep and rest are important for their wellbeing and performance. We are constantly told to run faster to achieve and deliver more.


When we finally rest, we do unconscious, medicating ourselves with food, alcohol, or entertainment.


Being still, slowing down, and becoming aware of our sleeping patterns and habits, we find out how much we lack sleep, and we realize that our nervous exhaustion, mood swings, unhappiness, or constant fight with weight gain are caused by the lack of sleep and rest in general.

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

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