june 20-26, 2019

Join us to the beautiful Madeira, part of Portugal and a breathtaking island right in the middle of the Atlantic.
Bask in the island’s natural beauty, the exotic colours of the flowers, the blue sea and the emerald green vegetation;
this is an archipelago where two thirds are a protected area and where the largest Laurisilva forest in the world is located.
There’s no place quite like Madeira, and it’s one of our favorite places to visit. We can’t wait to show you why!

Join us and you will experience Madeira to the fullest. We will spend 6 nights in Funchal in our private villa, and explore the entire island over the week. Get ready to dip in the Atlantic daily, taste the Portuguese senses with a cooking class adventure, admire the island’s flora and fauna, wine tasting, go on adventures, explore the country’s rich and colorful history, and so much more!

Amidst all the fun, we will of course focus on you and your development throughout the week and beyond.
In these stimulating surroundings we host our workshops given by industry experts in communications, digital marketing,
(personal) branding, wellness and photography. Engage with kindred spirits from around the world; HONeys that share the same passion, curiosity, the urge to express themselves, a burning motivation, and the ambition to reach for the stars.

The HONey’s retreats are all about:
Fun, Focus & Friendship!

travel with madeira experts

Our host, Cynthia, is an experienced world traveler who will take you to all the best spots on the island. She knows Madeira well and together with an experienced (English speaking) local tour guide we will explore the island. We will work with a fixed team of drivers throughout the trip; so you'll always have a friendly and familiar face. So all you have you to do is relax and enjoy!

our stay in madeira

We will stay in a beautiful, private luxury villa in Madeira for six (6) nights. The Atlantic Ocean is within arms reach, but we will also have our own private pool! You have the option to choose from a shared room with one other guest (twin beds or shared king sized bed) or choose a single room (with a kingsized bed). Each room comes with it's own bathroom.
