What our clients say…

I had the most wonderful self care couple of nights here. Emma and team were extremely welcoming, and the accommodation is beautiful. Such a gorgeous bed! The food was clearly made with love, and beautifully nourishing. I had a private yoga session with Emma and would highly recommend the experience. Really beautiful.
I loved my stay here and cannot wait to return for the surf weekend.

Tara Barker

I love the retreats at Desa. Em is a warm and nurturing host and wonderful yoga teacher. I felt that I was in very safe and caring hands here, allowing me to really relax. The rooms are lovely – very quiet, modern and the bed is super comfy . I loved the surf lessons, the beautiful grounds and surrounds and the food was delicious and nourishing. Highly recommend.
