Truly authentic holistic living in a low-key family environment where you can be as relaxed or as active as you like.  Ki-Ra is about Being the Change You Wish to See, your way, all ways.

At Ki-Ra, we create space for healing and reconnection without removing fun, quality or style from the equation. We take health and happiness as the foundation for holistic living and provides a platform of healthy eating and inspiring daily activities in a beautiful coastal setting. Each day at Ki-Ra we experience the richness of life, finding time to reconnect to our natural rhythms and the inspiration to be our highest self. At Ki-Ra you can enjoy the botanical gardens, secluded areas for private meditations, effective natural therapies and a variety of activities from island excursions to mandala drawing! We offer regular retreats and workshops, often collaborating with other practitioners and teachers.  Our food is from the Earth, and all is prepared with love and a knowledge of healing tropical cuisine.

Simon Furlonger grew up in the English countryside and has always felt a close connection with nature. Understanding the universe and our place in it has been a lifelong passion, which has led him to study the sciences, comparative religion, history and the ancient traditions, and this has given him the understanding of the principles upon which Ki-Ra is based.
