I was there for a workshop and found Okreblue a perfect and supportive setting: warm and friendly staff who happily adjusted mealtimes to accommodate the group, tasty and nutritious food, pleasant room, steps from a beautiful beach and sunrise, and easy bicycling to nearby towns.

When researching my ideal solo holiday, my check-list of requirements included sun, sea, quietness, inspiring yoga classes, great food, authenticity, value for money, relatively easy to get to and around, and unpretentious. My research (across various counties) kept leading me back to Okreblue.

Now I’ve spent the past week trying to find adequate words to describe a place, and the people who own it and work there, that far exceeded my requirements, hopes and expectations.

Okreblue somehow manages to simultaneously be a blissful, beautiful, sun-drenched, sea-side retreat AND a place that feels like home, immediately. Everyone who works there - the talented chefs, meticulous housekeepers (who clean every room daily), the warm and helpful ladies in the office (who greeted and said goodbye as if we were old friends) and the inspiring owners Sasy and Angelo - goes above and beyond to accommodate visitors’ wishes and needs. In my case, that included lending me their ears ;) and a pair of nail scissors, giving me the occasional lift in to town, masses of hugs, a pair of almost-new-but-unwanted flip-flops as I’d left mine at home, making an extra pot of coffee before brunch or a Greek speciality I wanted to try, and I simply couldn’t believe the amazing brunch box I was sent away with on my last morning, a feast to keep me going way beyond on my long journey home.

It was clear that every effort is made to accommodate special dietary needs - so just ask.
Similarly, if you want to book a taxi, massage, or other local activities, this will
Sasy and Angelo's genuine and palpable love of Paros, their centre, staff, guests, animals, nature, as well as healthy living and yoga (of course), plus their huge respect for the environment and wider community, is all evident in abundance at the retreat they have created, so you can see why so many choose to escape or host their retreats, workshops and teacher trainings there, or simply visit to attend Sasy’s incredible, ebullient, varied, heart-opening Hatha/Asunara yoga classes which she is adept at teaching in English, Greek and probably several other languages!

I’m not usually this effusive. In fact, I have never written on TripAdvisor before and don’t recall ever writing so many superlatives about a person, place or experience - and I haven’t even mentioned Okreblue's bright and airy rooms, the 1 minute walk to the cleanest, quietest beach I’ve ever seen, the spectacular views, the pretty nearby town of Naoussa, the wonderful, fresh, plentiful on-site meals made using local, seasonal and often home-grown produce, the gorgeous purpose built yoga halls, or Evita, who gave me the best Ayurvedic massage of my life (and I have had a lot of massages!) I felt like I was floating for hours afterwards.

So yes, this is a somewhat fulsome review but Okreblue deserves it. I arrived alone, exhausted, stressed, frazzled by a long period of illness and trauma back home, and I left with a full heart, new resolves, ideas, friends, energised, strengthened, nourished inside and out, and now can’t wait until I can return there.

Namaste Okreblue family! xxx

Room tip: They all looked lovely and spacious but my room was next to the office so had great wifi!

End of April was very chilly this year (2017) but Okreblue has a warm heart! With the weather the place got better and better. Food and view was excellent, cleaniness too, and I am waiting for next year when the new building will be ready to use.

One of the most amazing vacations I've had!! A little piece of heaven on Earth. Beautiful buildings, very eco friendly, awesome food, mostly home grown, as I found out from the hospitable and kind owners and staff. Very serene environment and the very friendly team of Okreblue, made me feel comfortable and cozy even though I was traveling alone. I definitely recommend Okreblue for either yoga or just plain holidays.

Room tip: Bungalows at building B offer sea view and direct access to the beach

I had an amazing time while staying at okreblue... This place combines everything: from cosy clean sunny rooms, excellent food (the cook makes the most amazing lentil crepes), beautiful beach within 5 minutes walking distance, great yoga practicing area and most of all friendly and interesting people! You do feel the personal touch and the real interest from the hosts that you have a nice stay.
