APRIL 27-30, 2017
THE LUXURY BAHIA PRINCIPE BOUGANVILLE
LA ROMANA, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
A ONE-OF-A-KIND RETREAT EXPERIENCE FOR WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS TO GROW, CONNECT AND BE INSPIRED.
In this 4-day/3-night transformational experience, we use actionable education, inspiring content and intimate community to refresh your spirit, spark momentum and surround you with people who totally get you. EXPLORE A NEW YOU – NURTURE, PAMPER AND LOVE YOURSELF. Explore what matters most to you while surrounded by like-minded, authentic women who share your goals and aspirations.
This is your opportunity to set boundaries and eliminate the list of obligations, duties, and responsibilities that leave you feeling disconnected, discouraged and drained. This Retreat whisks you away from all that and transports you to a land of inspirational beauty, where you’ll leave re-energized!
We’ll be adding new sponsors up until the event, so be sure to check back often for updates!
NURTURE NOT ONLY YOUR BUSINESS, BUT YOUR SOUL TOO!Treat yourself to our 4-day wellness retreat on Thursday, April 27th – Sunday, April 30th 2017 at The Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville in La Romana, Dominican Republic. You will learn to implement strategies with intent and purpose to support you in building a business you’re passionate about and living an authentic life. During this weekend you will be guided by a team of inspiring and encouraging experts and influencers, meet other like-minded, kickass women and build lasting friendships for a remarkable and unforgettable experience.
Through our agenda of powerful experiential activities, just the right synergy is created to allow you to reconnect with your inner wisdom and release any constraints on your prosperity and complete happiness.
Although this retreat will include plenty of time and space for relaxation and/or island activity, each of you will simultaneously be embarking on an incredibly powerful process of growth and rejuvenation.
Start your day with MORNING YOGA OR MEDITATION CLASSES that challenge and relax you (assuming you want to—if you’d rather sleep in, that’s cool too).
Harness your morning clarity and focus to immerse yourself in the EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS AND INTERACTIVE MASTERMINDS.
Develop completely CUSTOMIZED STRATEGIES, STRUCTURES AND GAME PLANS thanks to the combined brilliance of our expert speakers and mentors, who are excited to share tools and tips to see you succeed in all aspects of your life.
Have an intimate atmosphere to not only to learn, but also to DRESS UP AND CELEBRATE YOUR SUCCESSES AND BREAKTHROUGHS with other guests
Spend your days and nights in LUXURY, ADULT-ONLY ALL-INCLUSIVE ACCOMMODATIONS with everything you need at your fingertips.
You’ll arrive in the Dominican Republic on THURSDAY and be met at the Santo Domingo airport by our shuttle driver. Depending on when your flight arrives, you’ll be grouped together and travel approximately 45 minutes to The Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville, in La Romana.
Once you arrive at the resort, you’ll find a Private Group Registration where you’ll be greeted by our team and provided with the final agenda for the weekend as well as some surprise goodies!
You’ll have some time to freshen up and we’ll meet again at 7:00pm. This evening we will enjoy a Welcome Cocktail Reception and Dinner to get to know one another, create connections and set our intentions for the weekend. We will tuck away into our cozy beds early for a restful first night.
On FRIDAY and SATURDAY, we start the day off with a morning meditation and yoga session, followed by a scrumptious breakfast. Throughout the day there will be an array of interactive and educational workshops, together with a masterclass and mastermind, as well as a panel discussion. The afternoons are left intentionally unstructured so that we can enjoy some self-care “me” time and fun in the sun! Of course, there will be special activities sprinkled throughout the day for those of you that prefer to continue learning.
Each night, we’ll toast to another day together over a gorgeous group meal before heading over to the main lobby for casual chats with new friends and lively evening entertainment provided by the resort staff. If you’d rather, you can take advantage of any one of the many amazing restaurants on site and just meet up with us later on for some late night fun!
SUNDAY will be our last day together in paradise. We’ll gather one more time and dine together at our Farewell Breakfast before we say our goodbyes.

Let’s Create A MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE That Inspires Positive Transformation and Growth!
Immerse yourself in the heart of Dominican culture, famous for its beautiful people, traditions and excellent customer service.
Discover a resort getaway featuring design coupled with lush Caribbean gardens and the serene backdrop of La Romana’s Santana Beach. This adults-only resort allows you to unwind from the daily routine and indulge in a unique vacation experience free from noise, distractions, and worry. Each aspect of the resort complex is created specifically for adults including secluded spaces and luxury touches that create the perfect environment.
Luxury is more than just high-end amenities and services; it’s a state of being. Experience a place made exclusively for you, where every detail is treated with the utmost care and importance, creating a paradise unlike any other.
With their breathtaking beachfront views and their exclusive Don Pablo Collection luxury comforts, Bouganville’s 244 Junior Suite Deluxe and Junior Suite Ocean Front rooms provide a serene sanctuary at the end of a day of learning, connecting and adventure.
The resort offers delicious hand crafted meals and includes gourmet restaurants, a buffet-style restaurant, Jazmín, with international cuisine and theme nights offering everything from Mexican, Asian, Italian and Spanish food, and Los Corales snack bar, located near the beach, where you can enjoy fast food and hamburgers.
The best investment is the one that you make in yourself and in your personal and professional growth. Whether your intention is to grow your business or to simply have a relaxing, rejuvenating weekend surrounded by purpose-driven women, it is all part of self-discovery. Taking the time to step away from your busy schedules allows you to set intentions and continuously grow and evolve.
We always know what’s right for us, yet we struggle with creating the space for self-care, reflection and transformation. Sometimes we just need a bit of encouragement and to give ourselves permission to splurge and invest in ourselves to live life in complete balance!

Have questions? We have answers! Read below and if they still aren’t answered, please drop us a line via our contact page.
DO I HAVE TO STAY ON THE PROPERTY?
Yes, the full experience includes the full, all-inclusive accommodations and cannot be removed. We don’t want you to miss out on all the fun we have planned once the sun goes down at night.
WHAT IF I HAVE A DIETARY NEED?
Just let us know in advance when registering and we’re be happy to accommodate you! Our host venue is able to accommodate most common food allergies or dietary preferences.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR, PACK, BRING?
We recommend business casual attire or whatever fits your personality best for our workshops and masterminds during the day. Include some athletic shoes and comfy yoga and/or active wear for our early morning meditation sessions and yoga classes.
You will also want to pack cocktail dresses for the equally fun and beautiful “Welcome Cocktail Party” and “Welcome Dinner” on Thursday night, but we recommend pairing them with sandals, ballet flats or other cute and comfy shoes. All too often, we don’t have the time or reason to get dressed up outside of our yoga pants. This will be a fun opportunity to enjoy girls’ night!
Finally, for our “Beach Journey” event on Saturday evening we invite you to wear all white attire as we will be taking professional group pictures.
ARE ALL WORKSHOPS AND ACTIVITIES MANDATORY?
While retreat workshops are optional and not mandatory, we encourage you to get the most of your time and your investment.
WHO WILL I ROOM WITH?
Bring a friend and you can room together! Just be sure and include each other’s names on your registration and we’ll match you up. Coming alone? Don’t fret, most of attendees who come, don’t know anyone either! We’ll match a roommate for you and let you who they are in advance. As the saying goes, “a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet!” We really believe you are going to go home with a lot of new friendships!
DO I NEED TO BRING A LAPTOP?
Only if you wish, but really, we’re excited about all the face-to-face time you’re going to have with new friends! The resort does offer complimentary Wi-Fi in the reception area in case you need to check a few emails. Optional Wi-Fi packages are available resort wide for an additional fee.
We recommend you turn your email “Out of Office” on while you’re at the Retreat so you can unplug and take advantage of all the amazing opportunities to learn and connect!
