I booked this during my weekend trip to Brighton with my husband. It ended up being an exclusive experience with just us two, guided by Paola. A simply wonderful experience and fantastic value for money. The rustic retreat set-up was cute and intimate, wedged between a pop up open air bar and the ocean - excellent for relaxing in between the sessions and enjoying your refreshments. Despite the temperamental weather on the day, she demonstrated adaptability, timing the yoga session perfectly while it was still dry. This was a great introduction to yoga to my usually stiff husband, and he thoroughly enjoyed winding down. Finishing off with sound bowl was quite memorable. Yoga was followed by sessions in the sauna, which were intimate, unique and so very relaxing. I had never tried the birch leaves massage in the sauna and was surprisingly pleased with the beautiful aroma. The scrubs she provided were also wonderful. Running and dipping in the ocean with my husband straight out from the sauna was nothing like I’ve ever experienced. It felt surreal, particularly as a thunderstorm was just beginning, yet somehow we were completely warm and relaxed from head to toe amongst the cool waves. We finished off with a hearty warm meal and some drinks from Bison bar as recommended, super relaxed and mellow, still smelling like a hint of the final buttery treatment though we had rinsed off at the beachside shower. Paola looked after us very well. As expected in COVID times, she had also done the extra work disinfecting the spaces including the sauna and somehow survived using a visor whilst tending to us in the sauna. Note that due to COVID, my husband and I were given the scrubs and rubs to manage ourselves, however we still managed to enjoy the unique birch leaf massage administered by Paola, since no direct contact is involved. For each person, bring a robe and a towel or alternatively two towels. You’ll need to ensure you have a dry towel once you’ve rinsed off after the sessions.

Decided to do this experience at last minute do give myself a break from my young kids. I wasn't sure what to expect but it exceeded my expectations and really embraced the 5 hours of total relax and indulgence. It's a no frills experience which for me made it authentic and exciting. Both Paola and the beach box team arw passionate about what they do and it shows. I hope the carry on doing it through the winter as i would recommend it..great for meeting nice people too.

I had a lovely day and really enjoyed pampering myself with others in the saunas. The yin yoga was very relaxing as well.

Paola was a great host for the day and helped recharge our batteries and educate how the body reacts and wakes up to certain conditions. Interaction between guests was great and everyone came open minded able to have a laugh amidst much needed R&R. Slept like a baby the same evening so worked like a treat!

Brilliant and Special experience (half day retreat) The information and blurb doesn’t do this experienced justice. The sauna is amazing, there are about three saunas that have been converted from horse trailers. The sauna-master was knowledgeable and the sessions were accompanied by different aromatherapy oils. We had a free foot scrub treatment and a body scrub as well as the whisking (which is basically hitting you with leaves, like banya). The location on the beach is lovely and secluded and the facilities are sweet. Showers, deck chairs and a fire. Snacks, drinks and a light dinner (soup) were provided. If you can, treat yourself to the massages on offer, the therapist is amazing. The yin yoga and sound bath was a relaxing way to finish. A beat of a day!
