Amorgos is AMAZING! and the photos are accurate!!! The people friendly, helpful worth every penny. I can’t wait to return!
Such a lovely trip. So relaxing and invigorating at the same time. The spa is wonderful in a magnificent location and the food was delicious. The village is an easy walk with plenty of restaurants and shops . Jeneen is a great yoga instructor as as well as a beautiful bellydance teacher. I think everyone had a great time with her and the spa.
Diana Sherblom –
I highly recommend this well-planned and truly unique retreat led by Jeneen Picccuirro, who does an incredible job cultivating a warm and supportive experience. Jeneen’s yoga, meditation and bellydance classes are fun, restorative, and great for both beginners and the more experienced. And Amorgos is simply beautiful. As others have mentioned, people were friendly and welcoming wherever we went, and our experience with Aegialis Hotel & Spa delightful, with helpful staff, excellent food, and fun cooking and Greek dance lessons. Great massages at the spa! Thoroughly enjoyed our tour and stay in Athens as well.
What a wonderful trip! The spa is beautiful and the hotel is equally so. Both are well run. Thee is plenty to do in thenvillage and on the island to keep one occupied for several days. Jeneen is a wonderful yoga coach and beautiful bellydancer. Our meditation each day was just what was needed to begin the day.
My second trip to Amorgos and not disappointed. The Spa, the food, the people and of course, the dancing : )
