True Escapes Zakynthos

About The Retreat

From the inside out, our retreats give you the kickstart you need. Nourishing food, energising movement, optimising recovery and empowering socialisation are our four key pillars. Dottie and Ben guarantee that you will leave feeling revitalised and invigorated with the magic combination of work, play, relaxation and nutrition. TRAIN Carefully structured workouts to give you those much-sought-after endorphins. We cater for all fitness levels looking to improve your strength, cardiovascular fitness and overall mobility. Throughout our Escapes you'll have the opportunity to run, walk, lift and stretch. REPLENISH The key to feeling good comes from within. Our delicious menu will provide you with all the macro and micro nutrients to make sure you feel satiated, energised and most of all, replenished. We aim to cater towards all dietary requirements, please inform us of any you have upon booking. UNWIND As important to our health and wellbeing, managing stress and fatigue is paramount to feeling our best. With ample downtime and no strict requirement to join in every activity you can enjoy pressing pause, pop your feet up and optimise your recovery. ENGAGE We appreciate alone time is necessary from time to time but we prefer sharing fun with friends. With group meal times, group workouts and opportunities to explore the local area with fellow guests, TRUE Escapes aims to elevate your social side.

I’m still smiling a week later after such a fantastic weekend. It was exactly the boost I needed to get back into a positive mindset! The workouts were challenging but accessible; Benny & Dottie were a great support and nobody took themselves too seriously! Benny is an unbelievable cook, it was all absolutely delicious. As soon as I came home, I started meal prepping for the week ahead and planning my schedule around busy week to fit in the workouts. I can’t wait for the next one!x

The weekend was spectacular, I have not stopped talking about it to clients, family and friends. I ache today more than I have ever ached before, but I know it is all worth it. Dottie and Ben did a wonderful job of organising a TRUE-ly Amazing retreat. The advice and nutrition talk was very informative, the food was second to none, the workouts were hard, challenging but catered to all and the support and encouragement during them was gratefully needed.

I bloody love Dottie & Benny. The way they balance a serious schedule of intensive activity that enriches & challenges in all sorts of ways, they bring a relaxed, friendly feel to the weekend through their undeniable adorable personalities. Honestly, any rival escape could never hold a candle to TRUE because it doesn’t have them involved. Keep up the great work, dream team.  Xx

Couldn’t fault the retreat - only that I wanted more! Perfectly planned, rustic, homemade yet professional feel throughout contributing to the overwhelming feeling of relaxation I have now!
