Retreat - Day Journey
DAY JOURNEY is our newly curated day retreat series hosted at our stunning beach front retreat venue Villa Aether in South Lantau.
The journey is designed for modern day city-dwellers who are in search of a short get-away to rewind, recharge and reconnect with themselves. We will be fully immersed in the magical natural elements by the sea side and guided by the most experienced and authentic practitioners in town.
Through the thoughtfully designed practices and toolkits that you can take away, we also hope to bring you some inspirations and fresh perspectives and help you activate physical and psychological growth that precipitates tangible and positive changes in your day-to-day life.
Our next edition will be hosted on May 22, 2022:

- Shane Aspegren
Shane Aspegren’s unique approach to a holistic sound practice combines his multifaceted background—as a contemporary artist, composer, and experimental musician—with training in therapeutic sound traditions alongside an ongoing research into modern wave science. Since the early 2000s, Aspegren has explored various yogic practices, which led to a deep interest in meditation and the perceived experience of the human mind & body. After diving deeper into wave phenomena for a series of installations and performances, this eventually led to the development of ONDO, a natural bridge between his creative and holistic interests.
Our Chef Of The Day
Chef Nico Gellon is a nomadic, innovative, and experimental visionary. The prodigy of his thrilling experiences are symphonies of hand-picked, earthy dishes.
Born in Argentina and raised in Ireland, Chef Nico started cooking at an early age of 12 to support his family. He discovered his passion when working in the kitchen when he was 15. After he left his hometown Dublin, Nico worked in farms and restaurants in Portugal, Spain, Holland, Switzerland, France and Italy. Having to refine his practices around the world, he finds himself constantly creating, experimenting, and pushing boundaries. This allows him to connect within, follow his instincts more clearly, and create his own original dishes.
