Testimonials

“After planning to attend this retreat for 2 years, we had high expectations and a lot of excitement around the Kevyn Zeller Wellness Retreat. We also had some apprehension around bringing our almost 2 year old daughter with us and around our own fitness abilities. We should not have worried about a thing. The week we spent with Kevyn and her team could not have been more perfect. It was the most peaceful, restorative, fun, and beautiful vacation we’ve ever experienced. Every detail was thoughtful and luxurious. For the first time, I did not feel the need for a vacation after this vacation! We felt joy and gratitude each day for the beauty that surrounded us – not just the ocean, the beach, the house, but the people and the entire retreat experience! We left wanting more of everything – more of Scotty’s amazing food, more of Kevyn’s Pilates instruction,  more of the beautiful beach sunsets, and more time with the KZW staff. They were so lovely, accommodating, and truly engaging. Our fellow retreat attendees were gracious, warm, and fun loving. We feel really lucky to have spent the week with all of these terrific people. Our daughter learned some new words on this trip and the best was “delicious.” She heard it used often during the week, and I think it sums up our entire experience. We can’t wait to go to another KZW Retreat. It’s a vacation we want to experience over and over again.”

“I could not imagine how restored and indulged  I would feel after 5 days with Kevyn and her team. Each day was so thoughtfully planned and well coordinated; from themes which were introduced during our yoga practice which was revisited while practicing Pilates, or meditating, to peaceful beach walks with amazing views, to insightful comments on a massage table. While almost every need was anticipated, any small oversights were immediately accommodated. We were treated to healthy delicious food at every meal. Should one feel the need for downtime or desirous of taking advantage of the surf out the front door, breaking with the schedule was all ways an option? Rooms were clean, cool and comfortable.  And those facing the beach were offered amazing views into surfers paradise- all be it offseason. If a dip in the pool is more your style, that was an option too. All in all a very special, memorable experience, meeting some delightful people. And an experience I hope I am fortunate enough to repeat.
Thank you, Kevyn, Scotty, Nahvae, Sheelagh and Eric for a most amazing getaway.”

“The 2015 KZP Retreat exceeded all of my expectations.  The house, the food, the yoga and pilates, and the nightly beach bonfires were all amazing.  Every member of the KZP team was lovely.  Within minutes of arriving at Casa Colorados, I felt like I was on vacation with a group of close friends.  I have thought about that trip daily since my return and it brings me a little bit of happiness every single day.  I cannot wait to do it again in 2016.  Thank you Kevyn for starting my year off right!” – Kelly Poole

“My husband and I, well-heeled travelers both, spent 7 glorious days in Nicaragua on Kevyn Zeller’s first annual retreat and loved every minute of all of it. The yoga and pilates classes were sensitively and extremely well taught in beautiful settings. The meals were fabulous and healthy and prepared by a staff that added to the general sense of comfort, well being and personal attention. Supplementing the classes were challenging and stunning optional hikes, a glorious boat ride for sunset drinks and beach runs on a perfect surface. The accommodations were more than adequate and attentively maintained.For a first  retreat, we could not have been happier and expect that minor tweaking will only make this a perfect experience on our 2nd retreat.” – Lynn Harman and Phil Coltoff

 “I love studying with Kevyn – hell, I love Kevyn.  So this retreat seemed like the perfect vacation.  And it was.  Gorgeous location (check out the sunsets and the beach that goes on forever) exceptional pilates and yoga classes  (cooled by sea breezes,) challenging hikes, the most delicious food (three times a day) and heavenly massages to soothe whatever was left to soothe.  Down to every last detail, Kevyn and her team delivered.  I can’t wait for the next one.” – Gina Harman
 “KZP retreat was amazing and I would definitely sign up again and again.  Pilates, yoga, meditation, massages, and wholesome, delicious food.  The idyllic setting… Can’t be beaten.  Not only was the week simply Amazing but I was able to capture the feeling and transfer the idyllic feeling back home. Stressed back in NYC I just close my eyes and breathe deep and recall the serene calm of Nicaragua and KZP.” – Felicia Levy
 “A sublime experience. Everything about our retreat to Nicaragua was wonderful from Kevyn herself to her team of wellness professionals to the magnificent surrounding. It was a restorative experience …and I’m still holding on to that feeling.” – Maria Filipakis
