Amorgos of the Blue is the fairest of the Geek islands!  Truly, one of the most beautiful Greek islands in the Aegean Sea, you'll discover its secret beaches and untouched timelessness.  It is one of the most intriguing of all the Greek Islands, turning up surprises wherever you look. Located near Naxos and Ios, on the southern side of the Cyclades, this island amazes visitors with the natural beauty, the traditional architecture and the fabulous beaches.  The most famous sight of Amorgos island is the impressive Monastery of Hozoviotissa, constructed on the slopes of a rock with breathtaking view to the sea. A walk in Chora and the other villages of Amorgos Greece will be unforgettable, while hikers will also have the possibility to hike many interesting paths.  


According to mythology, Amorgos was the island where Ulysses, returning to Ithaki, was attracted like a magnet by Goddess Kirki, and stayed for many years. Every year since, the same magnetic attraction beguiles wellness and yoga enthusiasts, which flock to the island, attracted by its strong revitalizing energy and the abundance of therapeutic herbs, which makes Amorgos the perfect place for a spiritual and physical uplift.

About Aegialis Hotel and Spa

Standing proudly on the top of a rocky hill, immersed in a green oasis of unspoiled nature, it responds to the guests’ need for rest, peace and tranquility. The warm welcome from the owners and personnel, the high standard of service and the comfort of the facilities all contribute to offering a unique experience of the local authentic life on a Greek island.

The Retreat & Pre-planned Itinerary!


Each day will begin with an optional morning yoga class (based on demand and availability) and/or a gourmet breakfast buffet followed by group classes devoted to intuition and body wisdom exercises, meditations, techniques, discussions and journalling of outcomes and next action steps for you to continually embody grace.  There will be music, guided movement exercises and one on one channelled guidance from Arlene as well as profound group messages and modes of healing and action steps to further pursue in your goal of remembering all that is important to YOU.


Throughout the week, we’ll build progressively on intuitive and body wisdom as well as anatomical, alignment and energetic themes.  Lunch will be provided and we will continue with the retreat after lunch for a short while.


You will also have mini workshops presented by some participants that will ignite your curiosity and are sure to be incredible add-ons to your week. 


Every day  there will be ample free time so that you can relax in one of the peaceful places around the hotel or you may wish to explore the island.  The hotel offers many terraces and quiet places for relaxation as the beautiful pool and spa. 


During the evening, you can book any extra activities that the hotel offers, dine at the hotel's restaurant or book a shuttle with the hotel for a few Euros each way to visit the closest village for dinner options.  The closest village is a short 15 minute walk.

You’ll also be part of an open and inclusive community of fellow spiritual seekers.

Your Retreat Also Includes

Arlene is looking to organize as she did for the original trip, some incredible excursions.




+++ NOTE +++ - the fee for the excursions has not been incorporated in to the current fees you see in this trip listing.  The hotel has not released the slight increase to rates they will put forth in 2024.   I will let you know via this platform when this fee is available and when payment is due.  Thank you.


Here is what is in the works.




Guided Hike Tour We will discover the natural beauty of Amorgos by foot.  The Guided Tour will allow you to learn more about the cultural and historical aspects of each place you will see, introduced by an experienced, local tour guide.   We will walk from the town of Aegiali to Chora for one of the most breathtaking hikes the island has to offer.  It's an excellent way to discover and learn about the lifestyle of the inhabitants, their traditions and the typical ambiance of the Kafenion (traditional cafe).  This hiking route is located in the most beautiful part of the island and offers fascinating views combining sea, mountain and local vegetation.  Along the way, you can see the whitewashed chapels, sometimes built on ancient sites, the remains of a tower of the Hellenistic period and an overview of a small canion, Araklos.  This trail also offers the opportunity to reap a nice sample of the famous aromatic and medicinal plants of the island.

Boat Tender Adventure

We will start our journey at the dock of Agios Pavlos where the tender-boats await.  From here, we take the boats to a small beach, wind permitting,  away from the island, a hidden little gem where you can relax and enjoy the sunshine and continue with some retreat exercises.  The boats will be available at anytime during this activity for those who want to explore the crystal-clear waters of the Aegean Sea and dive in for a snorkelling experience or simply just enjoy some time on the boat somewhere in the middle of the sea.  Lunch will be provided including gourmet pizzas, some fruits, salad and a little sweetness as well!  Dietary requirements will be taken into consideration so please inform us before of what these are.

READ Retreat Polices (Pay, Cancellation)

Please read carefully,  This is a hotel on a remote island.  Thus, polices and usual practices you might find common in North America or other parts of Europe don't necessarily apply.   Again, this trip is so worth it but trip insurance is always recommended for you to purchase of your own accord.


1.  All deposits are required by October 15, 2022 to reserve your spot.  This deposit is final and NON-refundable.   

By booking with this site, if you are a US citizen, you have the option of paying directing from your chequing account which has no transaction fee attached.


If you are booking with your credit card, please note the 2.9% transaction fee which Arlene, the organizer does not control. 


2.  All payments made as per the payment plan are non-refundable going forward for any reason.  The nature of the hotel on this island does not permit refunds once payments are made.  They also only work with the organizer for payments and will not accept you calling to book directly.  


3.  Should you wish to have someone replace your spot because you need to cancel>. You are solely responsible to continue to pay for the trip in We Travel,  provide Arlene, the organizer, with the person's name and contact whom is replacing you and Arlene will advise from there and see if the names. may be changed in the We Travel platform.  However, you must make your own arrangements to be re-imbursed by the person replacing you and you must honour the payments owed for the trip directly.  Should payments be pate by you, the original purchaser, this booking (for your replacement) will be forfeited and offered up to someone on the wait list.


4.  Given the above, it is  strongly recommended to obtain travel insurance.  Past participants said they were able to access this easily with a phone call to the insurance company of their choice.  Also, given the current atmosphere of airports everywhere, it would be prudent to consider this expense.



5.  The fees on this trip listing  ($1100 usd) dsoe NOT include the cost that will be added once the itinerary with activities is set for your trip.  For past attendees, this fee was already included in your registration price as Arlene had access to the rates.  Again, as soon as 2024 rates for excursions are released, there will be an add on fee for your trip in this listing.  To give a rough estimate of what our trips cost in 2019 when booking, it was approximately 190 US per person for 3 incredible excursions.  Some trips may be optional and some are included with this package.

More Travel and Arrival Information

  • A valid passport is required and must be valid at least six months after the date of travel. It’s highly recommended to obtain travel insurance.
  • Approximately four weeks prior to departure for the retreat you must supply your flight information and ferry itinerary.

There are at 2 main options to explore for travel:

1.  Fly to Athens and stay one night or more , catching the ferry the next day.  Ferries are 5-7 hours in length so it may be too much to arrive at the airport and immediately board a ferry.  There are several sites that provide ferry schedules.  



2.  Fly to Santorini and take a much shorter ferry ride (approximately 90 minutes to arrive at the Katapola port on Amorgos)


Visit these Ferry Schedules to search different options for ferry travel to the island.

The event will start on the evening of the September 8th and finish on the evening of the 15th, allowing you to make travel plans for the following day.



Weather and Climate

The average minimum temperature (usually the minimum temperature is noted during the night) in Amorgos in September is 19.9°C (67.82°F). September is a dry month with an average of 6mm (0.2in) rain.
