Connecting Mind, Body and Soul.

Ladies, is this what you’re looking for?

  • Is it time to treat yourself?
  • Have you been running around looking after everyone else?
  • Are you craving for change, or to try something new?
  • Would you like to connect with other like-minded women and have a fun, stress-free experience?
  • Don’t have anyone who will commit to traveling with you and you don’t want to travel on your own?
  • Do you only have a few days to be able to get away from work and family commitments?
 

What are the escape weekends like?

These weekends are designed for you to fit in a much-needed short break, because we all know how hard it can be to get away with work and family commitments. They are small, women-only groups to allow for a more intimate experience and to allow for spontaneity and connection. It is an opportunity to try new experiences in a fun and safe environment. You’ll get to meet new people and enjoy this little part of paradise I call home. These are very flexible and relaxed weekends where all you need to worry about is getting your lovely self there, and I’ll take care of the rest. Relax and put your feet up!

Sharing the love-Some beautiful reviews for the Escape Weekend Retreats

Read more, as featured in Stuff.co.nz – Wine, pizza & fireside chats.

“I was lucky enough to be on Gina’s inaugural Winter Escape in July 2020. I had the best time. Gina had thought of absolutely everything, and more! There was a wonderful balance of things organised and time to either myself or to sit and talk.

At the end of the weekend, I felt calm, relaxed and happy that I had met new people, made new friends and was so well looked after. The added bonus, is that Gina keeps everything local.”

I would highly recommend this to every woman. It’s that good

“The Nourish Retreat in Coromandel NZ was absolutely beautiful, Gina is very organised, fun and caring.
The location was stunning, and the attention to detail by Gina adds that extra magic!
Totally recommended”

“I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with Gina at one of her Winter Escapes. I loved how relaxing the time was. We’d done so many interesting activities and yet it felt so chilled out. It’s not often you get a chance to meet complete strangers and have great conversations with them until late at night, by the lovely fireplace or in a spa pool. Gina is a great host and organiser with an awesome attitude and ideas, offering great value for money and a truly unforgettable experience. Thank you again!”
