Escape & Awaken in Crete

Scientists agree that every object, whether animate or inanimate vibrates. While living a human existence we exist within the parameters of a physical body.  However, we are much more than this physical body; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.

Part of this experience is choice and we can consciously choose whether to alter, raise and awaken both our physical and spiritual vibrations.

Our vibration ultimately affects our entire existence. For example, when we ‘feel low’ we are simply vibrating at a lower frequency, this frequency in turn attracts negativity into our lives

In this transformational island escape, healer and spiritual teacher, Angela Medway-Smith, (Wales’ Cariad Spiritual) will lead you through meditations, practical exercises and group work to actively awaken your spiritual vibration.

Each day focuses on using different methods to subtly awaken and raise your vibrational essence helping create your platform for spiritual growth and healing which you can use to ultimately transform your life. 


You will experience:-

▲ Daily Morning Workshops

▲ Daily Guided Meditations combined with healing from spirit, crystals and ambient sound 
▲ Connection with non-physical realms & Spirit Guides

▲ Ceremony & Ancient Shamanic Wisdom

These carefully combined experiences will help you to awaken, harmonize and balance your ‘being’.  After lunch the afternoons are yours to relax or explore this idyllic location.

Our location is Crete, just a four hour flight from the UK, we are travelling just 39km from Chania Airport in Western Crete to another world. 

Your Escape is at an exquisitely-restored traditional hotel set in a two hundred year old historic building, with spa, pool, verdant gardens and magnificent views, set on the slopes of a hill with views over the Mediterranean, in the middle of an ancient olive grove and next to the oldest olive-tree in the world.

​This immersive experience in the sheer natural beauty of the environment will enable you to totally relax, rejuvenate and fully absorb the teachings. The lush gardens are rich in tropical plants, vibrant bougainvillea, plum, lemon and fig trees; sweet smelling jasmine and all surrounded by a sea of olive trees; the source of all oil used at the hotel.

Start the day with a lush buffet breakfast rich with home-made pies and cakes, variety of healthy breads and paximadia, delicious biscuits and cereals, fresh fruits (many from the gardens) and all washed down with freshly squeezed orange juice.  Guest are free to take their breakfast anywhere they wish in the gorgeous grounds.  Lunch is an informal affair of light salads and snacks, or a picnic is prepared if you would prefer to follow the shepherd trails around the hotel and have lunch on the go.  The local chef is renowned for his hearty dishes, many secrets recipes of his grandmother; using only the finest ingredients available, everything cooked fresh every day

Hidden throughout the gardens are little seating areas, footpaths ideal for walking, and little nooks where you can enjoy the tranquillity and calmness, with just the sound of the cicadas to disturb the incredible peace and quiet.  The hotel grounds are magical, hammocks hang beneath the huge oak trees fed by the underground streams, wander around the ruins of a Venetian house, sit on the stone benches with their panoramic views or simply meander through the olive groves and orchards which encircle the main building.

​You can book one of the many themed holistic treatments offered here, including use of the sauna, an aromatherapy massage or a jacuzzi with rose petals and jasmine oil, and relax by the gorgeous swimming pool with spectacular views of Kolimbari and the valley below. 

A short walk away is the oldest living olive tree in the World, some 2,500 years old. A series of walks which can be taken from here, some guided, which can lead to waterfalls, hilltop Byzantine churches or simply to enjoy rural Crete at its finest. Close by are the beaches of Kolimbari, Falasarna and Balos. A drive through the White Mountains will take you to the south-coast and whale and dolphin-spotting cruises.
