“A truly unique experience for yoga and meditation fans but also for everyone looking for relaxation and connection with the nature, heart and inner self. Amazing environment with luxurious rooms, with natural material and outstanding aestetics, in a very large estate surrounded by olive trees and unforgettable views to the sea and sunset. The feeling is that you are in a private paradise in the middle of nowhere although picturesque Kardamili village and different beaches are a short drive away. Vivi is a great, generous teacher and hostess, while the yoga deck, the gardens with the local herbs and the delicious nutritious meals and aromatic beverages under the sun or moon are only some of the moments to cherish.
“The ideal place to find peacefulness and the place where the sky meets the sea and the soul meets the body. The meditation and the yoga classes that I have attended have been the absolute cure to my stress. I recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to leave everything behind and seeks a motivation for a different way of thinking. The place is ideal for couples as well who are looking for a romantic and relaxing getaway.”
‘’The place, the rooms, the staff and especially Vivi, a great yoga teacher who guided us every day through our yoga practice. Her knowledge, devotion, care and Love for yoga brings you to a higher level on your inner journey. Being with her all week is a true blessing. Zen Rocks supports that uplifting spirit, where you can be yourself, take time for yourself, surrounded by nature. And then you have the view, wauw!! I will come back definitely!’’
“Vivi and Eraj are the perfect hosts that know how to make you feel like home.great scenery and yoga schedule. Amazing therapeutics course.friendly and welcoming staff.???? loved every minute of it. I felt calm and peaceful. The tranquility of this place is what I needed.”
“Attended a week long yoga retreat. Lovely, clean, spacious accommodations all with a spectacular view of the water! Excellent and lovingly prepared vegetarian food! The hosts, Vivi and Eraj, couldn’t be nicer and more welcoming. They and their staff truly catered to everyone’s needs. Being able to practice yoga and meditation outside on a beautiful, covered yoga deck with a view of the water is something I will hold in my heart forever. There truly is spiritual magic there. If you desire more activity, beaches and the sweet town of Kardamelli are a short drive away. If you are looking for a spiritual retreat in a sublime, natural setting then give yourself the gift of Zen Rocks!”

Thank you for your generosity and your dedication together with Eraj and your beautiful team. I felt that all of them were driven by one love. It was like being with family.
