Hailed Among Best Retreats in the World!

"This wasn't just a holiday for me, it was a life-experience which will influence me for the rest of my days. I'm walking toward a new beginning and in the direction to my ultimate goal of self-fulfillment." - Ann, Holland

How it all Started

Suncokret Co-Hosts.jpg

Suncokret is the result of one woman's dream to live a healthier, more aligned to Self and Source life than the one she was living. This sparked a spiritual healing journey; one which led to a total holistic lifestyle makeover, which eventually rendered a deep inner calling to share that transformative experience with the world. 

In 2003 that woman met her life partner, a Hvar Island native, and together they would mold their talents and gifts into a unified lifestyle vision called "Suncokret" whose mission is to honor and share the blessings of their unique merger with others.


We invite you to experience the offerings of Suncokret Dream; may they inspire your own unique blossoming!

5 star Review on TripAdvisor from Sept 09, 2023 | Yogi Explorer with Marija Velichkova
"Thank you so much 😊"
Thank you so much for a magical week. This is much more than a yoga retreat and every day was an adventure of nurturing yoga, delicious food, wisdom, beautiful places, kindness, and love. When I arrived I was in need of some TLC and when I left I felt so rested and revived!
