Social Causes

We set up the Retreat with the intention from the outset to do something positive, however small and insignificant it may seem. So alongside our aim of giving our guests a dose of sunshine, good vibes, and awesome experiences, we are committed to giving something back to the local community and making a difference.


Rather throw our efforts and resources at causes far away and not visible, we decided to choose a cause, much closer to the retreat, where we can see the difference we can make.

We chose to support the mountain village primary school. Our aim is threefold : to improve the facilities;, provide much needed technology for the children to engage with (e.g. apple laptops ; and to promote health and wellness, by giving the local children access to our facilities and yoga lessons.! 


Patara beach , is one of a handful of sites on the Mediterranean coast that is the breeding ground for the endangered loggerhead turtles. It is estimated that only a few per thousands hatchlings survive to become adults. Adult turtles live about 100 years.

There are 8 sea turtle species in the world. Only the Caretta Caretta and Chenolia Mydas nest on Turkish beaches. 

We are supporting DEKAMAR, a Sea Turtle Research, Rescue and Rehabilitation Center.

DEKAMER also carries out conservation projects and scientific studies on sea turtle nesting beaches.
