trip OVERVIEW

A six night Escape to the north-west coast of the island of Zakynthos where we'll be staying in a luxury villa overlooking the Ionian Sea. Known as Greece's greenest island, and the home of the infamous Navagio Beach shipwreck, once you leave the town of Zante, Zakynthos is an untouched gem waiting to be discovered.

As with all of our Escapes, we’ve handpicked this villa away from the hustle & bustle of any tourist centers, to give you a taste of the real Zakynthos, and a true ‘retreat’ experience.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


WHAT IS THE COVID CANCELLATION POLICY?

If WE have to cancel the trip because of travel bans/border restrictions etc, then you have the following options:

  • Transfer any funds you have already paid to any future Escape with us (within the next 3 years), or
  • Request a refund. Obviously as a small travel business it goes without saying that we would be enormously grateful if you chose to transfer your booking instead of requesting a refund, but we’d be happy to honour your request.


If YOU have to cancel the trip because of issues with local lockdown restrictions, positive test preventing you from travelling, etc, and the trip is still going ahead, then you will need to make a claim with your travel insurance provider.

This is because if indeed there are some form of local lockdown restrictions still in place, these are likely to affect only a few individuals joining the trip.

With guests joining us from different parts of the world, all with different rules/restrictions it is extremely difficult for us to provide a comprehensively flexible policy that would cover everyone.

As an aside, you will need to have travel insurance to attend any of our trips. We would recommend that for the time being your travel insurance should also cover you for the following:

  • Positive COVID test preventing you from travelling
  • Local restrictions preventing you from travelling

Can I come on this Escape by myself?

Yes! Travelling alone is surely one of the best ways to meet new people.

For guests travelling solo you can choose a space in one of the Deluxe Twin shared rooms, or choose to take one of the other Deluxe Doubles or Master Doubles for solo occupancy.

What is the age range of guests?

The majority of our guests are in their 20's and 30's, but for this Escape we welcome everyone over 18.

Will I get any ‘free' time?

Absolutely! We will always schedule down time in our daily itinerary for you to chill by the pool, head to the beach or nap in the sunshine. Remember it’s your trip, and you’re very welcome to head off for a day exploring by yourself. If you’d like any recommendations or suggestions, just ask one of the team.

I have special dietary requirements - will you be able to cater for this?

Yes. After booking, we liaise with all the guests and help our chefs to design a menu that has plenty of options for all.

What is the food like?

AH-mazing! We expect you to be training hard in the workouts, so we’ll make sure you have plenty of food to refuel! We’re all about a wholesome, balanced approach to food so expect tables full of fresh, nutritious meals that we’ll enjoy together! Our Chefs like to use fresh, local produce, and where possible, give you a taste of the local cuisine. We’re very happy to cater for vegetarians and vegans and we’ll aim to cater for any specific dietary requirements. Make sure we’re clued up before your trip! 

What level of fitness do I need to be at? Do I need to be super fit to come?

We always accommodate a variety of fitness levels, and there will be lots of down time for you to relax and recover from the workouts. We programme each workout to allow you to work to your own abilities & pace, and Trainers are always on hand to provide modifications to exercises if required. It’s your choice as to whether you participate in each workout, but we’d always encourage you to get involved in as much as possible, challenge yourself for the week, and see what you’re capable of! Remember, it is a fitness retreat after all.

Which airport do I fly into?

Fly into Zante (ZTH) airport.

The transfer from the airport to the villa is roughly 30 minutes.

I have some injuries. Will I still be able to participate?

On every Escape, we have some guests with niggles or injuries, so we're used to accommodating for this! For most of the workouts we are able to provide alterations, progressions & regressions so that you can get the most out of our sessions. And remember, you can always join in to as much or as little as you wish.

What sort of workouts can I expect on my escape?

The coaches on your trip will programme as much variety as possible in the format, style & location of each of the workouts throughout the week. You can expect different training techniques such as functional strength movements involving sandbags and kettlebells, plyometric bodyweight movements and endurance training, boxing, HIIT circuits and our legendary finishers!

Can I pay by instalments?

Yes. To do this, first you need to confirm your place on the Escape by paying the appropriate deposit. After we've received the funds we'll be in touch to set up your instalments. As long as all payments are made by the Payment Due Date (60 days before the start date of the retreat), we allow guests to split the balance of the Escape into up to 3 payments.

GUEST REVIEWS

"Fantastic week with top tier trainers, diverse individual and team-based work-outs along with wholesome/high-quality restaurant grade food to fuel you through the sessions (seconds encouraged). Plenty to do away from exercise (boat trips, downtime etc) and left feeling much fitter and stronger as well as surprisingly refreshed."

- Sam S (Google Review)

"Incredible week in October in Zakynthos. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for a challenging but fun week of pushing workouts, recovery yoga and unbelievable food. Amazing villa with pool, tennis etc. Amy and Mike running it were brilliant."

- Chris R (Google Review)

"Salt Escapes was hands down one of the best weeks of not only my summer but my life. The workouts, people and trainers were all unreal. It was great fun from start to finish. Varied workouts, all the staff really approachable and knowledgeable in fitness. You come away feeling refreshed and with new friends for life. It’s a must do if you ask me 🙌"

- James S (Google Review)

"I’ve just returned from a week at the Zakynthos retreat and cannot recommend these guys enough! The workouts were really varied so guaranteed to never get bored and be challenged. The villa was amazing, people were lovely and the food was incredible...Loved it so much already planning for next year! Thanks guys :-)"

Steph M (Google Review)

"WHAT A TRIP. Salt Escapes is the perfect balance of high quality fitness, nutritious meals, expert instruction and pure luxury. Mike, Amy and the team were incredibly accommodating to all levels of fitness and they went out of their way to ensure the experience was the highest of quality. I can not recommend this enough. See you in 2020."

- Mollie P (Google Review)

"One of the best weeks of my life! I laugh now when I think how nervous I was when booking it! The hotel in Marrakesh was stunning, Amy & Mike made me feel so welcome and the crew were all amazing (no matter how many burpees they made me do!). Every workout was super sweaty and WHAT A VIEW! The team kept us energised and I’ve made so many wonderful friendships. Will definitely be booking again for next year!"
