When seeking to conduct a yoga retreat, meditation retreat, or similar meeting, retreat hosts look for locations which reflect positively upon them and offer an environment that meets their values. As someone interested in planning a yoga retreat, there is no margin for error. Your guests have high expectations that must be met through a perfect combination of many elements including:
Stunning Location - The venue should be inspiring and enhance the overall tone, mood, and spirit that the retreat leader wishes to create for their group.
Comfortable and Service Oriented - Retreat leaders and group participants need to know that the equipment, facilities and staff at the hotel will make their stay transparent so they can focus on the “work” and reason that brings them together, and be able to forget about the day-to-day logistics that make the place run smoothly while being inspired by the moment-by-moment aesthetics of being present.
Food - As a retreat leader and attendee, you don’t want to worry if a place can handle your special dietary needs, be them vegetarian, vegan, etc. but rather you want everyone to rave about how great the food is and how the kitchen exceeded your needs and expectations.
These are just a few of the key elements that workshop leaders and attendees look for in a retreat location that meets their basic requirements and their specific needs for alignment in values.
