What do our customers say?
I have just returned from the 4 day, finding true north retreat at Gratitude Vietnam and I couldn’t recommend it enough. From the moment I arrived I was made to feel at home by Naomi and Hannah. The villa is beautiful, from the gorgeous pool to escape the heat of the day to the tiny details in the stunning rooms such as fresh teas and coffees! Naomi and Hannah have carefully considered every detail. The morning yoga in the dedicated yoga sala was the perfect start to the day. In the peaceful surrounds of the flourishing garden, the yoga was grounding and easily adaptable to all levels of the group.
The food was UNBELIEVABLE! Every meal we had was delicious and certainly plentiful. Hannah is an incredible cook and we left every meal with our stomachs full and our bodies nourished. I was dreading going back to every day life and having to cook for myself!
Naomi runs thoughtful and insightful workshops. Her approach is subtle and always gentle, allowing you to determine your own boundaries and I found at the end I had come much further than I thought or anticipated at the beginning. She also provides constructive tools to take away to everyday life after the retreat. There was also meditation every evening providing calm at the end of the day. The meditations were varied and always decided on in discussion with the group.
Additionally, the whole retreat is run with sustainability at the forefront of the hosts agenda. Food is locally sourced, there are water bottle refill stations around the property and you are even gifted items at the beginning of the retreat to help you be more sustainable yourself. I would highly recommend this retreat to anyone considering a retreat in Vietnam. I found the balance of the retreat well suited my needs but there are plenty of options to tailor the programme to suit every individual. I look forward to returning in the future!
Gratitude Vietnam is truly a special place and everything I imagined when I booked a yoga/mediation retreat.
I have originally booked a two-night retreat but extended to four nights because I simply didn’t want to leave…
Lovely rooms with attention to every small detail, great yoga and meditation sessions, fresh, homemade delicious food and good energies in general. There is enough free time for just hanging out by the pool or on the beautiful balcony.
Thank you, Naomi and Hannah, for a lovely stay and for making me feel at home. I can’t wait for my next visit!
I attended a yoga retreat at Gratitude over the New Year's holiday and have to say, it was one of the best travel experiences I've ever had. Yes, it was a yoga retreat...but I'd also say it was a bit more. It was a very nurturing and loving home, where everyone was welcome. Naomi and Hannah pour their heart into Gratitude and you can see and feel it the second that you walk through the doors.
You'll never eat better, you'll never sleep better, you'll never feel better.
When I left, I felt so renewed, ready to enter the chaotic world again. But it was my time there that allowed me to slow down, enjoy things that often get overlooked and find a community of like-minded travelers (who I adored and we all still keep in touch).
I've been fortunate enough to have traveled around the globe, but this is truly a special place.
I stayed at Gratitude Vietnam for a New Years retreat and have to say, I could not have started the new year in any better way. From the minute I arrived, the owners Naomi and Hannah made me feel at home. There was a very thought-through schedule of yoga, meditation and workshops every day, but of course nothing was mandatory and people could attend according to their individual needs. However most of the time, everyone was there. We were a group of mixed ages and levels, and everyone was curious to try out everything.
Hannah cooked three delicious vegan-vegetarian meals a day that were served on the sunset balcony. The facilities as such are of very high standard yet incredibly personal with attention to every little detail one could possibly think of. Gratitude offers the luxury of a hotel, while feeling like a second home, too. The location of the villa is great as well. It takes a 10-15 minute bicycle ride to the picturesque old town of Hoi An; bicycles are provided by Gratitude. After an afternoon in the busy streets with lots of street food, shopping and exploring, it was always nice to return to the more quiet and peaceful neighbourhood Gratitude is located in and being greeted by the most adorable cats and dogs that belong to the facility.
All in all, I’d say that Gratitude Vietnam is a treat for one’s body, mind and soul and I highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking for that kind of holiday!
Gratitude Vietnam is the perfect place to retreat, learn and/or take some time off. I spend three days at Gratitude for a yoga retreat and was amazed by the set up of the retreat, the service as well as the location and ambience. Yoga sessions are scheduled in the mornings followed by a delicious breakfast with locally sourced fruits, homemade granola and lots of other delicious treats. The afternoon offers free time to explore the beautiful city of Hoi An which can be reached by bike (provided by Gratitude) in about 15 min. After a delicious, healthy dinner and dessert, Naomi prepares a special evening meditation which takes place either outside or in a cozy beautifully arranged meditation room.
The overall ambience of the retreat is just perfect, Hannah and Naomi thought of every detail in the rooms as well as in the common areas and around the swimming pool. The room is very spacious and cozy, with a little fridge, a boiler, teas and coffee. I was really amazed about the interior, design and thought through little elements which made my stay even more pleasurable. Gratitude is located in a calm area surrounded by trees and fields, which I found great to go for a run. Breakfasts and dinners take place on a charming terrace outside. Before my arrival I was in contact with Naomi in order to arrange my stay. Communication went very smoothly and she made sure to ask for my preferences and level of experience for the upcoming yoga sessions. Yoga was taught by an external instructor and definitely met my expectations.
It is also possible to book special massages and treatments such as a Reiki treatment (Naomi also offers Reiki trainings at Gratitude), sound bowl treatment/massage and regular massages. I tried a combination of sound bowl and Reiki treatment which were both new to me and was amazed by the result. As I have back problems, I suffer from tenseness and pain in my neck, shoulders and back. The treatment relieved a lot of pain in those areas and gave me a very relaxed feeling. Naomi really tries her best to meet the individual needs of the guests and does an incredible job in making people feel welcome, physically as well as spiritually. Overall, I would highly recommend Gratitude Vietnam for anyone who is looking for a beautiful and calm place to take some time off, relax and discover the charming city of Hoi An. Hannah and Naomi have created a wonderful retreat from activities, location and ambience over to food and have exceeded my expectations for this trip! Thank you both a lot, I hope to see you again very soon!
I had the privilege to spend a few months at Gratitude Vietnam doing different workshops and retreats and completing Reiki 1 and Reiki 2.
It was the best decision I've made last year and fully enjoyed every single day there.
The retreat is located on Cam Nam island, 10 minutes cycling from Hoi An ancient town. The Villa has a pool, meditation space, yoga sala and even a labyrinth, impossible not to fall in love with it. 🙂 My room, Peace was very spacious with a private balcony, bathroom and kitchen. It's been professionally taken care of all the way by lovely Phuong (thank you!).
The hosts, Hannah and Naomi are simply amazing, super helpful with everything, creating a safe space for any individual who'd like to reflect, meditate or just relax.
There is plenty to do outside as well, organic farms, ancient town, experience local life, cooking classes and even a beach nearby (An Bang) amongst many other things.
This place has my highest recommendation, if you're looking for the perfect getaway, don't look any further, give it a chance and thank me later! 😉
Naomi is the bomb: gentle, genuinely caring and sincere, unhurried, loving and all that you could want for when receiving a Reiki treatment. She and Hannah have created the most beautiful retreat centre in a very tranquil setting.
4 Night Yoga and Meditation Retreat November 2019
Once you come to Gratitude, you’ll never want to leave! Hannah and Naomi are two beautiful souls who put all their kindness and talent into making your holiday meaningful and memorable.
The location is ideal, 5 star service, lovely decor, amazing food, best reiki I’ve ever had.
Thank you ❤️
A thousand thanks for creating this amazing retreat. I now have seven soul sisters; joining together for daily yoga ( twice daily) meditation and exploring Gratitude and compassion thru discussion, ritual, writing and play! As the elder in the group it gave me an opportunity to appreciate the fullness of my ongoing spiritual practice....and a nudge to self to live in “ beginners mind”. Such a interesting group of women: with all of us bonding in such a short period of time. As one of my soul sisters said,” our weekend felt like seven days. I don’t want it to end."
You and Hannah have created a very beautiful special, magical safe space to do the inner work of transformation. Thank you for holding all with your loving presence, knowledge and commitment to aid in spiritual transformation and growth.
Gratitude Vietnam is a place to be where we can just be, to find peace, love, joy, gratitude and healing. I will always remember and treasure the weekend meditation and yoga retreat by Gratitude Vietnam, where me and my Soul sisters connected so deeply over just 4 days.
Truly grateful and very touch by the loving energy and non-judgemental space held by every being on the retreat.
Gratitude Vietnam is a beautiful place to find some peace and calm! I participated at the Reiki1 training and retreat and it was a lifetime experience. Naomi, who leaded the retreat, is such a compassionate and loving person and she always took care of the individual needs from everyone. This few days where so much more than a Reiki1 introduction, it was a deep understanding and healing process for me.
Every day was filled with meditations different tools for self-reflection and the reiki training and content. In the meantime we got treated with the best healthy vegetarian food, home cooked by Hannah, the second wonderful host here. All together it is a beautiful place with such a eye for details and you will never want to leave once you arrived!
Thank you Naomi, thank you Hannah! I would highly recommend this place for everyone :)!
My wife and I had wonderful three weeks at Gratitude Vietnam. It is a truly unique and wonderful retreat venue located on a calm island with healthy distance to the vibrant city center of Hoi An. We feel so blessed to have gotten the opportunity to experience yoga and singing bowl meditation in such a beautifully place. The rooms of the villa were spectacular, more than anything we expected.
Naomi and Hannah are not only great hosts, but also very kind, loving and selfless personalities. We will be forever grateful for their guidance in love and light. After three weeks we leave Gratitude Vietnam not only with a deeper knowledge on yoga, singing bowls, reiki and mindfulness but also a whole new perspective on life itself.
Anyone who wishes to experience a wonderful yoga and meditation retreat should definitely book this. It is a truly transforming experience.
Beautifully presented in every way, peaceful, relaxing and very comfotable, every room tastefully decorated. Meals times a joy with such delicous healthy food served on the first floor dinning area or by the poolside at lunch times.
As a retreat leader I was so well treated and looked after in every way as well as my participants by the owners Naomi and Hannah so professional run, I loved every minute and thank them both for such a fabulous experience all served with love.
The Sound Healing is first class as well as all other treatment.
I would recommend Gratitude Vietnam to anyone wants a peaceful retreat as well the perfect place to run training workshops and sessions.
Thank you Naomi & Hannah
Love & Blessings
3 night stay - September 2019
Hannah and Naomi have created a beautiful sanctuary for yoga, meditation and mindful living. Their space is in a perfect location in Hoi An and they welcomed me into their home like I was family. The detail they have put into each room is enchanting and the meditation room is preserved Vietnamese architecture.
There is opportunity for yoga retreats, reiki, sound healing and meditation. There is also a meditation labyrinth in the garden. They have a retreat coming up at the end of December and they have a vast amount of knowledge to share. The yoga sala is nice and open, I loved practicing there.
The food is home-cooked and delicious. Everything local and vegetarian. Hannah is an amazing cook!!!
I am so grateful I got to stay at this beautiful center and experience the grounding energy created by two empowering women with a vision to spread their love and light. I highly recommend staying here and learning. You will be so glad you came here !!!!
3 week stay - August 2019
Gratitude Vietnam was a home for me when I found myself so far from one.
Initially what drew me in was the incredible labyrinth beautifully positioned next to the yoga sala. My intention was to walk the labyrinth one afternoon, find some clarity and head back to normal life in Danang. Instead, I found a family.
Naomi Rowan and Hannah Rogers immediately welcomed me in, made us coffee and we started chatting. The conversation led to them sharing that they needed someone to help with events, and me sharing I was looking for a change. So 3 days later I moved into Gratitude Vietnam.
My 3 or so weeks there were blissful, regenerating and the perfect setting from which to engage an inner dialogue and contemplate matters close to the heart. The energy is loving - these two ladies have poured their heart and soul into creating an authentic space for healing and relaxation. I participated in the various activities on offer from yoga to singing workshops, all of which gave me the clarity, confidence, and insight I needed.
Thank you to all those who contributed to what can only be described as my 'serendipitous recentring'.
