Sipping a delicious specially selected local wine as you're enriched by the exciting and diverse organic ingredients that have been inspired by nature and lovingly created by your Michelin rated chef, the powerful expanse of the unspoiled alpine landscape, the tinkling sound of laughter and hum of high-vibing conversation

It's the end of an incredible day in this beautiful hidden gem, deep within the Slovenian countryside, you glance around and share a warm smile with your new best business-buddies-for-life,  your mind drifts away and you can already feel the gentle waves of sleep wash over you just thinking about stepping in to your bedroom, filled with the warmth of natural wood and furnishings, a real oasis of peace and tranquility.

You imagine waking up and watching the sun light up the mountains as you stretch and prepare for another day of transformation and you wonder how does life get any better...

Your Retreat Experience

At Villa Planinka you'll see first hand how getting back to nature and creating unique memorable experiences can drive business growth, profitability and customer satisfaction. 

The hotel is a business masterclass in its own right!

So we will be using every aspect to help you create your plans for your next level success.

Rather than spending hours in a boring conference room, we'll combine sitting around the table together with interactive activities that'll be fun and transformational.

We'll work together, share ideas, brainstorm, but also have plenty of time on your own. 

Our sessions will focus on developing the next level vision for your life and business and creating the roadmap that's going to get you there.

We're also going to help you get more visible, show up powerfully, confidently, ooze fabulosity and own your zone of genius. 

You'll get to go out in to the local landscape and learn how to capture a great image (hint: this will help you build the framework for your levelled-up business); you'll learn how to get the best selfies as well as pose for your own professional photoshoot.

You'll get the tools, tips and techniques to master your mindset and your business and we'll send all your negative and limiting thoughts up in smoke around the firepit.

And, before you pack your bags we'll celebrate your success in true style and sophistication with our empowering millionaire's cocktail party.

Your Venue

Slovenia is the only country with LOVE in its name... bordered by Italy, Austria and Croatia this small country will overwhelm you with the beauty of its nature, food and the wonderful warm welcoming hospitality of its people. 

Villa Planinka in the Jezersko Valley is far away from the bustle of European cities yet only a 30 minute drive from the country's capital and airport at Ljublijana (well worth a visit before or after your retreat)

Here in this wonderful healing climate you'll find time goes by at a slower pace. This alpine hotel is built on 4 energy lines and commands staggering views of mountains and the valley. 

Everywhere your gaze takes you will fill you with a deep sense of calm and connection.

Oh I so need this! Let me register my place now!

At Villa Planinka you can savour delicious meals that are based on locally sourced organic ingredients. Sheep and cattle graze on the mountain pastures where the air is pure and the herbs and wild fruits are rich in flavour.

Magnesium rich spring water, locally pressed juices and biodynamic wines quench your thirst as you satisfy your palate with Michelin rated food and service.

Sit amongst the wildflowers and take in the fresh mountain air over breakfast. Return from your star walk and relax by the firepit.

Each bedroom is unique and a tribute to the local heritage and nature with breathtaking views of the valley and nearby mountains. 

Be the first to book and your balcony can provide the perfect base for your to retreat to and the hotel saunas can offer the the deepest relaxation.

"Happy to host you"

I know what it's like to have a dream. A compelling idea for a business that fills a gap you can see in the market. It's exciting but just so difficult to get clear on it and develop the necessary plans. It can seem so ambitious and far removed from where you are now.

But, I also know how getting away can give you the space you need to make it happen. How new adventures, experiences and people can inspire and empower us. How having our own space away from our normal daily influences can open us to all the new possibilities that exist for us.
