The hotel, facilities, staff, and service were all exceptional. The atmosphere was clean, relaxing, and calm; perfect for a retreat. The food had variety and was excellently prepared. The yoga was wonderful! Ella is a skilled teacher. I’m not the biggest Pilates fan but Hally was an awesome teacher and very encouraging. The trip was a little expensive but there were many inclusions. I would imagine it could be a little cheaper so that other groups of people can attend. The atmosphere among the attendees was a little off - it seemed that some groups of women were hesitant to socialize outside of their groups. I think it would be beneficial to incorporate more icebreakers and getting to know you activities. Personally, I would have liked to see more meditation as well. But all the included activities were as described and really great. It was a memorable experience and I’m very happy with what I received and the friendships made. I look forward to visiting this part of Jamaica again.

This was my second retreat with Thrive and I hope not my last! I've been a fan girl of the studio and their instructors for almost 10 years but getting to experience their methods of Thriving outside the studio was next level. The retreat is nothing short of blissful and even months post returning, I'm still practicing the "Dare to Be" mantra. Can't wait for the next retreat!!! XoXo

I had a blast this year on the Pure Bliss retreat 2023. Hally, Ella and the Jake's Hotel team did an excellent job coordinating and planning out our itinerary. The team also went above and beyond to accommodate all of our needs and make sure we were well taken care of. Jamaica has a special place in my heart and I hope to return again soon!
