WHY TEACHERS CHOOSE US
My fave retreat location! I am about to lead my 4th yoga retreat at Aegialis, and cannot say enough about the beauty of the yoga studios, the unreal views, the incredible staff, and of course the magic of the island! The world is so big, and I usually don't re-visit locations, but I fell in love with Amorgos and Aegialis and have been back every year since! The food is so delish that I compare every meal all year long to the amazing fresh food of Aegialis, too! The local fish, the raw honey, the unbelievable olive oil! It's heaven! Highly recommend that you visit!
We have been coming to Aegialis for the past few years, my wife and I organize yoga retreats here and ever since the first time we could never go anywhere else, the locations is perfect the yoga facilities are modern and top notch we have everything we need for the duration of our retreat and our clientele are always so pleased and happy with what the hotel has to offer whether it's the delicious food the kind service the cleanliness you are sure to have an amazing experience.
