#LetsGetOM in Patmos

May 22, 2019

Few days ago something wonderful happened to Patmos Eye Villas: a Yoga & Detox Retreat, strictly for women. Not any women, but my friends and friends of my friends.

Three days away from work and family. A pause. Paradise on earth. The perfect setting.

Our invitation was made by the talented Maria Athanassiou

16 women, a food blogger and a Tai Chi Teacher & Therapist. Both Villas were packed, but filled with smiles and positive vibes.

The program started with an organized visit to the Cave of the Apocalypse and the Monastery of Saint John the Theologian. A perfect start for everyone to get to know the history of Patmos.

Throughout the retreat we had introductory courses of Yoga and Tai Chi. We went for an adventure walk at Kipi, a private beach only for few. We enjoyed personal massage sessions from Anastasia and aromatherapy in Patmos Eye Villas private hammam. We relaxed in the hydromassage pools. Some of us went to the beach to discover the crystal clear (and COLD!) waters of Patmos.

Accomodation for all was in the Patmos Eye Traditional Luxury Villas.

After the first acquaintance circle, everything has been easy. We were all a team of women, decided to relax and enjoy. It was a retreat just of ourselves.
