Retreat of the week
Akasha Wellness Retreat, Romania
Akasha is an unexpected gem in the heart of rural Romania that offers a moment outside time. Nestled amongst hills and valleys in the tiny village of Peştera in Dracula country with a backdrop of the Bucegi Mountains, the retreat has been converted from a traditional hotel and offers a series of themed wellbeing retreats throughout the season. Choose gut health, wine tasting, juice cleansing or hiking as your focus and mix with stunning views, twice-daily yoga, fresh, honest plant-based food, and the gentle daily chorus of cockerels, cows and horses. Bursting with meadow flowers in summer, and blanketed in snow in winter, the dramatic setting takes the retreat experience to another level of awe, perspective and harmony.
