Mermaid Retreat - Awaken your inner child (Thailand, April 2024)


Mermaid Retreat – Awaken your inner child (Thailand, April 2024)

The Mermaid Retreat in Thailand allows you to awaken your inner child and set it free. Let’s take off the mask of “adulthood” together and just have fun and play. When did we actually forget how to play? Definitely way too long ago!!! So, stop that. Our inner child is crying out for freedom!

On the one hand, I offer continuous training sessions for breathing and relaxation exercises at the mermaid retreat. On the other hand, you can experience the underwater world like never before. First we practice the mermaid move in the dry. Then you can try mermaiding in the water. Of course, you will always be supported by our experienced safety team.

After we have practiced posing in front of the camera together, you can have your picture taken above and below the water. Our photographers love to accompany and support you in your development.

All activities are of course pure offers and not compulsory courses. Simply choose the activities you would like to accompany us on.

What happens at this Mermaid Retreat?

A wonderful mix of fun on land and in the water awaits you at the Mermaid Retreat. Among other things, I offer units for relaxation and breathing exercises. These will help you stay underwater longer during mermaid swimming. We also go through exercises for present posture and posing. This not only boosts your self-confidence, but will also make you shine in your photos.

But also those who want to use the retreat to integrate more balance and downtime have wonderful opportunities to do so. For example, you can relax in a hammock, treat yourself to a massage or spoil your taste buds in one of the many restaurants on the island. The white sandy beach with crystal clear water borders directly on the 5-star eco-resort.

Here are photos from previous Mermaid Retreats.



Who is this retreat suitable for?

In principle, the Mermaid Retreat in Thailand is suitable for everyone who loves variety and wants to try something completely unusual. Our Mermaid Weeks were designed to create a place where it is allowed to “be a child” again. Not only can you swim here with colorful mermaid tails, you can also be exactly who you are here. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve swum in a mermaid tail before or not.

All activities are voluntary. However, you must be able to swim safely and have a basic level of fitness if you want to participate in the water activities. No freediving, scuba diving or mermaiding experience is required.

Because we firmly believe that mermaids come in all sizes, shapes, colors, ages and genders, there is no visual criteria to meet. However, participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a legal guardian.

Since this retreat welcomes both women and men, it is also wonderful for couples.

About Zeavola Resort & Spa, Phi Phi Island

Zeavola Resort & Spa is a luxurious barefoot resort that takes joy in returning to simplicity on the beautiful island of Koh Phi Phi Don in the Andaman Sea. The Phi Phi Islands are probably best known for the Leonardo di Caprio film The Beach. There was worldwide media coverage of the damage caused by mass tourism and day trippers visiting the famous Maya Bay and its subsequent closure.

Florian Hallerman, Zeavola’s manager, is an avid environmentalist and has made huge changes within the resort to bring more sustainable luxury to a remote destination.

Replacing plastic packaging for weekly deliveries from mainland Thailand or Phuket saves a whopping 260kg of plastic per year. By implementing its own drinking water bottling plant and drinking water filling stations throughout the resort, single-use plastic bottles will be reduced by 120,000 per year.

Mermaids and mermen are not only magical water creatures, but also ambassadors of the sea. You have the wonderful opportunity to draw attention to marine and environmental protection. For this reason, Zeavola is a wonderful resort for our mermaid and merman excursion.
