  • How many guests can attend each retreat?
    We limit the number of guests to 8 per retreat to ensure an intimate and personalized experience for everyone.
  • What is the booking process?
    The booking process involves choosing a date and submitting an individual application, which will be reviewed within 2-3 business days (Monday to Friday). Once your application is approved, you'll receive a confirmation email with details on how to complete your booking, choose room types available and settle the payment. Additionally, you have the option to book an initial call with our Psychiatrist & Retreat Director to further understand how we can assist with your mental challenges and to see if this retreat is for you. Please note that there is a required survey to be completed prior to this online call, ensuring we are well-prepared to address your specific needs.
  • What if the slots are fully booked?
    If our retreats are fully booked, don't be discouraged. We encourage you to still apply as we automatically place you on our waiting list and will email you accordingly. If a slot becomes available, we'll notify you immediately. Additionally, we periodically open new retreat dates, so there are always more opportunities for you to join us. Our goal is to accommodate everyone who wishes to experience the transformative journey that Hiraya offers. Your wellness journey with us is just on the horizon!
  • How physically fit do I need to be to participate in the retreat program?
    You don't need to be exceptionally fit to experience the Hiraya Wellness Retreat. Our program includes activities like yoga, light hiking, and kayaking that are designed to be accessible to varying fitness levels. Our skilled team tailors each session to suit your comfort and capability, emphasizing mental and emotional well-being rather than physical prowess. ​ If you have specific concerns or health conditions, please consult with your healthcare provider and let us know in advance so we can make accommodations. At Hiraya, we're committed to providing an inclusive, supportive experience that fits you just right.
  • Why is there a required diet fasting for the program?
    The light fasting protocol integrated into our program is a vital part of your wellness journey. It is designed to prepare both your body and mind for the transformative activities and experiences throughout the retreat. In the first two days of the retreat, we provide light meals and initiate a fast before specific workshops. This form of fasting can cleanse the body, boost mental clarity, and enhance overall well-being, thus maximizing the receptivity and impact of the wellness techniques employed in our program. This protocol is designed to be safe and manageable, even for those new to fasting. As always, your health and safety remain our top priorities and we have medical and wholistic medicine experts to make sure it is safe.
  • Why is there a recommended one-week abstinence period before the retreat?
    To maximize the benefits and efficacy of our retreat, we strongly advise a one-week abstinence period from substances like alcohol, tobacco, caffeine, and, if possible, any antidepressant medication (with proper consultation and guidance from your physician). Additionally, we recommend abstaining from sexual activities during this period. In fact, if you can extend this period of abstinence longer than one week, it may be even more beneficial for you and the program. This time of conscious restraint and detoxification is designed to purify your system, enhancing your receptiveness to the transformative experiences and mental wellness practices provided throughout the retreat. The abstinence period serves as a valuable preparation, aligning your body and mind to fully engage in the profound journey towards self-discovery, personal growth, and renewed well-being. Your understanding and cooperation in this matter are paramount in ensuring a successful and enriching retreat experience.
  • What if I have dietary restrictions or preferences?
    Please inform us of any dietary restrictions or preferences when completing your application. We will do our best to accommodate your needs and provide delicious and nourishing meals throughout your stay.
  • Do I need to have previous experience with yoga or meditation?
    No prior experience with yoga or meditation is necessary. Our skilled facilitators will guide you through various practices suitable for all levels, ensuring that you feel comfortable and supported throughout the retreat.
  • How do I get to the retreat location?
    We will provide roundtrip airfare from Manila to Busuanga Airport and roundtrip airport transfers to the private island. If you need assistance with booking flights to Manila or arranging accommodations within the Philippines, our team is happy to help.
  • What should I pack for the retreat?
    All you need to bring is yourself and an open mind, ready to embrace the transformative experience. We recommend packing comfortable clothing suitable for yoga and outdoor activities, as well as swimwear. We'll provide a more detailed packing list once your booking is confirmed.
  • What types of rooms are available at Hiraya Wellness Retreat?
    We offer a variety of unique rooms, each differing in layout and design. Though different, all rooms are well-kept, air-conditioned, and come with hotel room service, daily cleaning service, and a balcony with a stunning sea view - the perfect backdrop for reflection, relaxation, and connection with Yourself and nature.
  • Can I choose my room at the retreat?
    Room selection is based on a first-come, first-serve basis. While we cannot guarantee a specific room, we ensure that all our rooms provide the utmost comfort and an environment conducive to your mental wellness journey.
  • Can I request a room change once I arrive?
    We strive to accommodate all guest preferences, but please note that room changes are subject to availability, and we recommend expressing any specific desires or requirements in advance.
  • Is there Wi-Fi available at the retreat?
    Yes, there is Wi-Fi available at the retreat. However, we encourage our guests to limit their screen time and fully immerse themselves in the healing and transformative experience. In fact, there may be specific parts of the retreat where we will discourage complete phone screen time. Disconnecting from the digital world, even briefly, will enhance the effectiveness of your time to reflect, rediscover, and focus on your mental wellness and personal growth. Your cooperation in this matter will play a crucial role in maximizing the benefits of your stay with us.
  • Can I book extra days at the retreat location or arrange additional activities during my stay?
    Certainly! We encourage all our guests to explore the Philippines and its beautiful islands further. After all, the Philippines is known for its breathtaking white-sand beaches, vibrant coral reefs, rich cultural heritage, and warm, friendly locals. That's why we highly encourage you to tour around while you are here. If you choose to book extra days at the retreat location or arrange additional activities during your stay, we can help organize these for you, including tours around the island and visits to other recommended destinations. With the help of our travel agent, we can tailor recommendations based on the number of free days you have, ensuring an unforgettable exploration of the Philippines. Please note that we will need at least 30 days' notice to organize these additional activities and accommodations. Your adventure doesn't have to end with the retreat; let us assist you in making the most of your trip!
  • Are there any age restrictions for the retreat?
    Our retreat is designed for adults aged 21 and over. If you have any specific concerns or questions about age requirements, please feel free to contact us.
  • Can I attend the retreat if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?
    Yes, we can accommodate most dietary restrictions and allergies. Please inform us of any special requirements when you complete your booking, so we can ensure that our chef can prepare suitable meals for you during your stay.
  • Do I need a visa to travel to the Philippines?
    Visa requirements depend on your nationality and the length of your stay. It is important to check the visa requirements for your specific country before planning your trip. If you need assistance or have questions about the visa process, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
  • Is travel insurance required for the retreat?
    We highly recommend obtaining travel insurance for your trip to cover medical expenses, trip cancellations, and other unforeseen events that may occur during your stay. Please be aware that Hiraya Wellness Retreat will not be liable for any incidents or unforeseen occurrences related to your travel. Claiming against the insurance company is your responsibility; however, Hiraya can assist you in the process if needed. We advise you to consult with an insurance provider to secure a policy that best fits your needs.
  • What forms of payment do you accept for the retreat?
    We accept payments through PayPal, an internationally recognized payment platform accessible in most countries. This provides a secure and hassle-free way for you to pay, ensuring a safe transaction for both parties. One of the many benefits of using PayPal is its acceptance of various forms of payment, including credit cards. You don't even need to have a PayPal account to make the payment; you can easily use your credit card during the checkout process. Utilizing PayPal's global reach makes it convenient for participants from around the world to join our retreat.
