Hello! I’m Kim and I founded Serenity Retreat in 2010. The aim is to offer soul nourishment to solo travellers. We’re all different so that will mean different things to different people – and that’s part of the point. One size does not fit all, so we give you all sorts of little bits and you do what you will them.
All our rooms are for sole occupancy. In Greece, the rooms are en-suite and range from basic to really quite fancy. In Sicily and the UK bathrooms are shared but ALL rooms are still for sole occupancy.
We ‘get’ introverts, welcome extroverts and always have room for those in the middle 🙂
There are no single supplements (they drive us mad).
Our aim is to give you space – you have all the answers, sometimes we just need some space to coax them out.
I started the company because of my own sense of frustration regarding finding reasonably priced breaks for solo travellers who want solo accommodation, are happy being single and want peace, quiet and time for reflection rather than nursing a hangover!
I am a big fan of all things meditation and mindfulness, especially the demystifying of both. There’s nothing ‘special’ about either. We all do both, some of the time… just a question of building on what we naturally know.
This magazine-style blog is my way of sharing some ideas and insights as well as letting you know about businesses with a similar heartfelt intention and ethic. I travel quite a lot too (back and forth from Greece for a start) so I’m going to share some of my top tips: places to stay where to eat and what to do from the viewpoint of a solo female traveller.
I hope you find something useful
This is me (in 2014)
