"Kathy's Island Retreat is heaven on earth! The place is nestled between rocky mountains and blue sea, with astounding views and a peaceful environment. Perfect for a getaway from your usual busy and stressful life. The food was excellent, the rooms were very nice and clean, the staff was extremely warm and attentive, and Kathy is an amazing host. I have made friends for life in this retreat and I would heartily recommend it for people looking for something different, away from big hotels, luxury, noise, and tourists; just you, nature, yoga, and warm people around you. The perfect yoga retreat!"

"I have had a great week with sun and swimming, lovely yoga sessions and a lot of tasty, healthy food. The place is situated in a beautiful area between Finiki and Lefkos, only a few hundred meters from the ocean. Here you find peace without the noise from busy cities. It was an amazing experience to fall asleep to the sound of the waves and the ocean. I think the program for the week was really well organized. We had two yoga sessions a day with an amazing yoga teacher, Nina Heiberg. She is an inspiring and down to earth teacher. I feel that we all got a lot out of the yoga regardless of our previous experience. The SUP yoga was great fun! We had a good mix of activities and excursions. We visited beautiful beaches and had nice lunches at the restaurants. Kathy’s Island Retreat was a lovely place and the service was professional and personal. The food they served was health focused, ecological vegetables from their own garden, a lot of vegetarian food and good variation. The guest rooms are airy and nice with a balcony with amazing sea view - the beds were very good! I came home as a new and better person! I will for sure be back!"

Paradise on earth, is a pretty accurate description. Wonderful people, the beautiful hostess, her lovely assistant and of course the chef who came up with the most amazing food. The sun, the sea, the lagoon. Mountains, air, darkness and birds. Plus rooster! And the cat.... Top service in every way. A room with a view that was a joy to wake up to. Recommended (6 of 5 stars :))

I recommend Kathy's Island Retreat with all my heart. The place, which is beautifully situated at the foot of the mountain and straight out to sea, has everything you need, in all its simplicity. The food is the best I've eaten in Greece!! And Kathrine is a wonderful hostess. Five Star."
