Blue Sky Escapes Retreats:
An Emergence of Self – Releasing Into The New
A Day Retreat:
An Emergence of Self – Releasing Into The New
27 December 2021
8:00AM — 5:30PM (full)
The day retreat will take place at a historic colonial bungalow perched atop the forested Labrador nature reserve — Tamarind Hill. At this picturesque and tranquil enclave, sessions will be conducted in a safe and nurturing space conducive for you to take the journey within.
With its timeless interiors, rustic-luxe décor, and epicurean dishes, Tamarind Hill is an amalgamation of Asian and colonial influences, perfectly mirroring the city’s storied past.
The culinary team at Tamarind Hill specialises in heirloom recipes and an extensive repertoire of traditional and modern dishes. At the day retreat, powerful Indochinese flavours are thoughtfully combined to sublime effect, with attention lavished on the quality and freshness of ingredients. A curated lunch menu will come together beautifully to honour both culture and flavour.
Our day retreat opens from 8AM and ends at 5:30PM on Monday, 27 December 2021.

“What I hadn’t expected was to be wrapped up by all that greenery, serenity seeping into my awareness and gently sloughing away stress… Every day, we meditated on joy, gratitude and peace.”
Retreat Participant, for CNA Luxury
“(The retreat) allowed me to unplug from the world, recharge my batteries, connect with my mind, body and spirit. I felt at peace knowing that I took time out for myself. The Blue Sky Escapes Team have managed to create a beautiful and tranquil sanctuary in busy Singapore. I felt like I had left the country for a long weekend escape. I’m heading home with a calm mind and full heart, ready to take on the world again!”
“So beautifully thought through from the beginning to the end, detail oriented, someone to help every step of the way, like family. To be able to extract ourselves to experience this in the heart of Singapore was phenomenal. Thank you.”
“In a time of uncertainty, chaos, noise and disconnection, this retreat offered an opportunity for renewal, perspective and awakening. I am leaving feeling renewed, alive and awake.”
“Being my second time attending this retreat, it could have been same-same and still good. However, I discovered entirely new insights and experienced things I didn’t think I would. Blue Sky Escapes always impresses with their level of personalisation and service, it was truly a unique experience.”

End of Retreat
As each step on the day retreat schedule has been thoughtfully designed to take you on a journey of unfolding and emergence, we would highly recommend that you begin and end the journey as planned so as to experience it as it was intended and get the most out of your retreat experience.
The day retreat is being hosted in a secluded location away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, which will serve as the perfect container for you to experience inner healing and transformation.
This day retreat is for:
- Anyone interested in transformative wellness practices
- Anyone looking to devote time for self-care
- Anyone looking to release stress
- Anyone looking to improve their sense of self
No, all sessions are optional to attend, however we recommend that you attend all sessions as scheduled to gain the most out of the retreat experience.
Absolutely, some people are looking for some time out from their lives and they embark on the wellness journey solo, and you’ll most certainly be amongst people having a similar experience. Some of us might just want “alone-time”, or some of us might want to seek new friendships.
Retreats are an incredible place to make great life-long friends. There’s something about going through the retreat experience that can really create strong bonds.
We encourage that you leave your mobile phones and digital devices in your bags and come tech-free to the retreat. We will also have a ‘drop-off’ box for anyone who would like to deposit their mobile devices at the start and collect at the end of the day retreat, in order to be truly free of these devices for the duration. It is up to you what you would like to do, but we are requiring a tech-free zone during the day retreat itself, on the session grounds. If you need to have access to your phone for any reason, please let us know and we can arrange a private way for you to do so.
The health and safety of all participants, practitioners and our team remain our top priority. Wearing of face masks is mandatory during the retreat, except when eating, drinking and during strenuous activities. We will be abiding by the latest Safe Management Measures as outlined by the Singapore government.
Safe–distancing will be adhered to at all times, with appointed safe-distancing ambassadors on-site. We also encourage everyone to be equipped with the TraceTogether app or token and deploy SafeEntry for contact tracing.
Our team will also ensure that rigorous cleaning and disinfecting regimes are implemented, particularly for high touch surfaces.
We will be abiding by the latest Safe Management Measures as outlined by the Singapore government. We are permitted to conduct the sessions and workshops for no more than 50 guests in a single room, provided that the relevant safe distancing measures are put in place on site. Guests will remain in assigned groups during the sessions and workshops, while keeping to group sizes as per the prevailing safety measures.
Before the day retreat, you can share any food allergies, dietary plans and dietary restrictions that you may have with us. We will do our best to adapt to every guest.
No, we encourage you not to. We will not be able to issue a refund after the cancellation deadline but a transfer of space to another may be possible. We will be able to review the situation on a case-by-case basis.
