This luxury yoga retreat is packed with adventurous trips. One of my favorites being the hike to meditation caves. But taking a waterfall swim is a close second.

During my solo backpacking adventure in Malaysia, I already did a tea plantation tour. Which makes me even more excited about the tea plantation tour at this event. It’s for sure an activity I can do over and over again. Especially if a tea tasting is included!

But of course, it’s not all about the adventures and trips. Let’s talk yoga!
