Frequently Asked Questions
Everything You Need to Know Before You Go
Why Leo Tribe Escapes?
Leo Tribe Escapes are like no other. We bring the beauty of nature to every retreat be it hiking in the mountains of Georgia or paddle boarding in the Arabian Sea of Dubai to yoga on a hillside with stunning views in Ibiza. We combine this with touches of luxury that you don't get elsewhere. All retreats encompass sophisticated accommodation, indulgent spa treatments and premium activities and cultural experiences in locations that are both diverse and beautiful. Our aim is for every guest to feel the connection between Nature and Nurture through health, fitness & wellness with other like minded women.
Why are your retreats for women only?
Our retreats are based around creating bonds with like minded individuals and making friendships that will last a lifetime. Through our fitness community we have seen how powerful a group of women with shared interests and passions working togther can really be. We encourage acceptance and support for every woman who joins us and we aim to motivate and empower you to realise your true potential.
We can however tailor retreats for mixed sexes and couples, please get in touch for these.
I'm coming alone will there be other women like me?
Yes, the beauty of our retreats is we attract lots of solo travellers because we encourage inclusion and being part of a group. We have a number of single occupancy rooms which you can book or we can pair you up with another solo traveller if available. You will definitely not feel alone during your time with us.
I'm travelling with friends can we room together?
All our retreats offer slightly different accomomodation, most of the time rooms are based on single or double occupancy but if you're travelling in odd numbers then get in touch with us and we'll see what we can do. Otherwise if you are travelling in pairs then just let us know when booking and we'll most definitely assign you to the same room.
What age are the women who attend your retreats?
Leo Tribe Escapes attracts women of all ages from 20's through to 60's, with the majority of our guests being in their 30's, 40's & 50's. We strongly believe however that someone in the 20's can add value to someone in their 60's and vice versa and so encourage all ages.
How many guests attend your retreats?
We like to keep our retreats exclusive and so they typically range from between 10-14 guests, but no more than 20.
Do I need a good level of fitness to attend your retreat?
Absolutely not, although we do require you to be in good physical health and able to walk a good distance without difficulty. We can give you an easy 'fitness' plan to follow before your time with us if you require & this will help you feel more confident before you arrive.
Are the Yoga & Fitness sessions compulsory?
Not at all. The Yoga and fitness components of our retreats vary from location to location but all sessions are tailored to suit each unique group & are completely optional. Our Instructors are very knowledgable and we have women of all abilities, shapes & sizes joining us. All sessions are appropriate for everybody and just like our 'fitness Community' we nurture a safe and supportive environment for everyone to be healthy in without any judgement. We will encourage you to join in but ultimately this is your holiday and you are welcome to use your time as you wish. Each retreat will have a General Itinerary which will show you what 'sessions' are scheduled throughout the week.
What about the other activities, are they compulsory?
Again this is your holiday and your time. We are all unique and that is something to celebrate. You are free to particpate in as many or as few activities as you wish. Should you want to have a lie in, or a relaxed afternoon with a book or just some quiet time to yourself then feel free. Whatever makes you feel good should be nurtured.
What will the food be like?
You will be served a range of wholesome and healthy dishes throughout your stay that have been designed with our chefs. Each location the food is differnet and mostly takes on a style accustomed to that location. Food will be locally sourced & fresh. Our retreats are not focused on 'weight loss', so there is no calorie counting, but all meals will be nutritionally balanced to meet the activities of the week.
Do you cater for different dietary requirements?
Yes we do. Just let us know when you book & we'll be sure to sort it for you.
Can we drink alcohol?
Alcohol isn't provided on our retreats and only included where there is Wine Tasting. You are welcome to to purchase alcohol from the accomodation (if it's a hotel) or locally (villa) and consume on the retreat.
Is there Wi-fi access?
There's good wifi in most locations, and it's free in all of our accommodation. If there is any probem with the wifi we will make you aware if this. Please note that wifi can be unpredicatble when travelling to locations away from the accommodation and differnet carriers charge different fees. If you need help purchasing SIM cards for a specific location we can help you with this.
What do I need to pack?
Every retreat is different and you will be sent a packing list once you've booked.
Can I book more spa treatments?
Absolutely. You will notice that most retreats have a dedicated 'spa' day, and if you wish to book additional treatments, depending on the number of guests, you may have to book on a differnt day during the week.
If you'd like to book additional treatments then please e-mail us and we will send you the Spa Menu and available times.
I'm ready to book, please tell me how?
Great. You can book your place on our escapes, by heading to our store at the top of the page and paying your deposit.
