This retreat is hosted at the pristine, Bonjuk Bay. This is an intentional retreat center founded to create a new habitat for like-minded people to celebrate life through learning, sharing, creativity, personal development and self-expression. Great music, creative arts, gastronomy and physical activities are part of daily life in Bonjuk Bay. We come to Bonjuk Bay to connect with our true self as well as the nature and each other. Eating meals together, engaging in daily activities and making new friends is part of the experience to promote a sense of community. Yet there are many hidden corners to escape when we feel the urge for privacy. Whatever your choice may be, the idea is to leave Bonjuk Bay inspired and transformed.

Throughout this journey, we will find a deep connection to nature as we explore the healing effects of Cacao and yoga. We experience this medicine and open our hearts to receive. This retreat focuses on personal transformation, growth and healing and will leave you feeling cleansed and empowered. We invite you to embark upon this powerful journey with us as we explore the mysteries of our own heart, guided by the Earth Elements, which allows us to peel away the layers and awaken to our soul’s purpose. Insights, breakthroughs and revelations abound supported by this magical land.

Resort Info

The Bonjuk Vacation is based on a genuine experience of nature. Bonjuk is not a hotel. Bonjuk is not a resort. Bonjuk is an unspoiled piece of nature whose bounty is being made available to ecologically conscious guests.

Developed around the concept of “glamping” or “glamorous camping”, Bonjuk offers its guests direct and deep contact with nature in a comfortable setting. We believe that privacy and seclusion in a magnificent piece of nature is the ultimate luxury. With this principle in mind, we aim to offer our guests charm, refinement and a discreet elegance in every detail.

Bonjuk has been designed to attract that very special traveler who is running away from the crowds in search of a pleasurable experience of nature. Seeking comfort but not over the top luxury, our guests are curiously alive individuals who can see and enjoy the bounties that nature offers so unassumingly.

Bonjuk is where the world of urgency ends and the return to nature, our true nature, begins. We promise you’ll go back home transformed and feeling that Bonjuk is the one home you’ll always miss being away from.
