We’ve invested a lot of time, effort and resources in making Akasha suitable as a wellness retreat venue. The only centre of it’s kind in Romania. It is an ideal canvas for your own creative project may it be a yoga retreat, personal development or wellness themed team building.
By hiring Akasha all you need to focus on is what you do best whilst we look after your guests as if they were our own with the same quality of wellness facilities, healthy food and personal attention that we’ve been known for.
We know it takes a lot of effort to organise a yoga retreat internationally. We’ve done it too in places like Goa, Rajasthan & Costa Rica. If there’s anything you need to help you plan your next yoga retreat or event please let us know.
