WHAT ARE OUR SEASTERS SAYING ABOUT US?

What is AWA?

Have you ever been to a place and stood in awe of its beauty and inspired by its sense of community? Have you felt at peace just being there but with just one nagging realisation that you won’t be able to integrate the way you’d like in a short week vacation? We know the feeling well and that’s why we have curated an experience that goes above and beyond what you could possibly find on your own but also provides you a window into a new place and a group of powerhouse women that no other retreat can offer. 


You’ll be hosted, coached and held at all times by an all-star lineup of women that inspire through their simple mindful way of living. We will laugh, move, stretch, share our love for surfing and enjoy the simple pleasure of connecting as human beings of this beautiful earth. The food is always a highlight. From exotic tropical fruits to local fish caught that morning we will enjoy absolute decadence and rejuvenation with every meal. Your body and soul nourished by organic locally sourced food prepared in house with love by more amazing women.


There is truly something special when women come together but there is nothing like the magic of coming together to sing the same song, that's how it feels. A safe space for authentic connections, fueled with supporting vibes and pure stoke. We want AWA to leave you overwhelmed with joy and expand your body and uplift your soul. That’s why we do this. That’s why we want you to do it with us.

WHAT ARE WE ALL ABOUT?

Surf

Surf

Whether you are ready to catch your very first wave, gain more confidence in the water, transition to riding a different board, learn new tricks, or cross-step on a longboard, our fun team of professional surf instructors will adapt to your goals and work daily by your side to help improve your skills and take your surfing to the next level. 

MOVEMENT

MOVEMENT

We will practice restorative yoga, introduce meditation and explore conscious breath-work. All of our classes are tailored to benefit your surfing abilities, as well as healing and avoiding injuries. Our yoga teachers aim to help you develop strength, improve balance, relieve muscle fatigue, create mental space and become more aware and in tune with your body.

NUTRITION

NUTRITION

We celebrate food with enthusiasm so we carefully custom curate a healthy and nourishing menu for every retreat, always adapting to any dietary restrictions. Experience the most delicious flavors   prepared and served by our in-house chefs. We only eat local, organic and fresh ingredients - from exotic fruits to local fish caught that morning we will enjoy decadence and rejuvenation with every bite. 

ADVENTURE

ADVENTURE

Every moment is an adventure with us! We make the rules and love breaking them so we can take you beyond borders and inspire you to explore the world in new, wild and radical ways. This is the time to challenge our limitations, try new crazy things and take our fears head on together.

COMMUNITY

COMMUNITY

We believe in the power of sisterhood and building community is our passion. Our goal is to always provide a safe space for all women to play in,  cultivate authentic connections and surround themselves with genuinely supportive and fun vibes.  We work close with local non-profit organizations and bring our efforts together to support the development of these magical places we call home. 

NATURE

NATURE

One of our greatest teachers and our favorite medicine. The natural beauty, wild and lush landscapes of our destinations will capture your heart and take you by the hand to a deep, expansive and unforgettable journey.

SELF-LOVE

SELF-LOVE

You can’t pour from an empty cup. Everything starts within you. We will give you the space and time to learn self-love practices for you to incorporate healthy habits into your daily life. We believe that falling in love with yourself is the very first step to find pure joy and happiness.

SUSTAINABILITY

SUSTAINABILITY

Living in a small beach community has made us keenly aware of our daily practices regarding our natural surroundings and the people we live with. We will share guidelines to maintain environmental responsibility, disposing of waste properly and leaving no trace behind to protect the natural beauty of the locations we explore.

Design your private retreat.

We are your go-to partner for creating radical and soulful experiences for you, your family, group of friends or corporate setting. We are all about making magic happen and experts in bringing your dream retreat to life.
