REST & THRIVE IS FOR YOU IF YOU NEED TO:
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.
Be more relaxed and refreshed than you’ve ever been
Let go off the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience the transformative power of nature and the night sky
We offer a balanced, wholesome cuisine based in Ayurvedic medicine designed to nourish your body and delight your senses.
The cuisine is simple, using fresh ingredients from the on-site organic garden or local farmers. Food is part of the retreat experience, including daily brunch, light lunch, and dinners.
We cater to all dietary needs.

TIME TO UNWIND
Upon reservation confirmation, you’ll be sent a welcome letter giving lots of useful information about the retreat & this includes a guide on how to get here. If you need a transfer from the airport / Cape town, provide the details in the reservation form.
Everyone is welcome at all of our retreats regardless of the meditation, yoga experience or fitness levels. We cater for different levels, so that you will be supported, challenged & encouraged to learn.
You don’t need to participate in everything; you can pace yourself to find the perfect amount of activity for you. We support you in doing as much or as little as is right for you, depending on how you are feeling. Personally, we wouldn’t want to miss a thing.
It’s not possible to stay on at Bliss & Stars, unless you are attending the next retreat. We ask that you leave by 5pm on the closing day. Lunch is the last meal which you are welcome to stay for.
No, there is neither mobile coverage or WIFI available. There is a computer with guest access available in case of emergency. And you will be provided a phone number, you can be reached while staying at Bliss & Stars.
