Kwendalo Signature Wellness Retreats for 2022


Introducing our signature wellness retreats in Plettenberg Bay, South Africa

In our frantic modern world, it’s no wonder that we find ourselves in increasingly poor physical and mental health, harried and buffeted by the fast-paced demands of life – feeling out of balance and unwell. In trying to keep to this pace, we have stopped growing and started simply surviving.

At Kwendalo, our holistic approach to wellness encourages self-knowledge, harmony, and growth. Nourish body, mind and soul during our signature Kwendalo Wellness Retreat comprising a three-day cleansing fast with vibrant juices, vitamin-rich broths and herbal teas followed by a two-day reintroduction of healthy plant food. Dates for our final retreat for 2022 are below. During the retreat, our guests will enjoy a bespoke treatment plan to facilitate reconnection with the physical world, balance and revitalisation on a personal journey towards holistic wellness.
