This year we are hosting our fourth recovery retreat, with Counselling Psychologist Dr. Clemmie Jacques.

Clemmie is in recovery herself and works for both the Priory and NHS as a specialist in the field of dependency, as well as other related mental wellbeing concerns.

Clemmie has designed this week to focus on building recovery gains, emotional growth, physical well-being, and relaxation. As well as therapeutic workshops, this retreat includes yoga, meditation,
delicious vegetarian food, activities, excursions and plenty of time for fun in the sun.

A week with us costs £800 and includes the following

  • 7 nights accommodation in our newly renovated hotel, complete with outdoor pool
  • Airport Transfers
  • Delicious vegetarian cuisine made in our kitchen with fresh ingredients – breakfast, lunch and supper
  • Yoga classes twice daily (Pre-breakfast and Pre-dinner, excluding Sundays)
  • Visit to the local hammam for a steam, scrub and short massage (optional extras can be purchased)
  • Days excursion to local fishing village for lunch, shopping and beach fun
  • A trip to the local market for food, clothing and souvenir shopping

We at Azure wanted to host this kind of a retreat because we truly believe that azure offers the change to have a lovely relaxing holiday, away from all the crowds and alcohol focused activities.

Our retreat
is a safe space for those hoping to enjoy a holiday and stay close to their recovery aims, in a supportive environment.

This retreat is aimed at those in early but stable recovery from alcoholism, substance and behavioural addictions. It’s ideal for those wanting to continue or enhance their journey towards this goal.

Therapeutic Resources

We will be offering group therapy daily, to help guests to explore, connect and find healing.
