On arrival we will show you to your room at The Chapel, once you’ve settled in and sampled our delicious cake and fresh juice, you will be treated to a complimentary ½ hour massage or reflexology, to really help begin the process of cleansing the body and de-stressing after your journey. A welcome yoga session, often held on the beach (weather permitting) will start to calm the body and mind to really get you in the zone! A scrumptious two-course Dinner is followed by a beautiful relaxing yoga Nidra session. For those not wanting to drift off to bed we will light the fire pit, this always goes down a treat at the end of the first day!

Days 2 & 3

We start the morning with a run or walk along the beach, followed by a flowing yoga class after a hearty healthy breakfast our guide Phill the Hill will take you on a variety of scenic walks along the Cambrian coast, exploring the local waterfalls, forests and hills! A paddle boarding session on the Dovey Estuary, a cold water dip at the waterfalls and wild swimming at the Talyllyn lake are all included as part of your daytime well-being activities.

You’ll be brought back to The Chapel in the afternoons for some peaceful free time, you can either float away in the hot tub in our beautiful zen garden or take an additional therapeutic treatment we offer a whole range of treatments in massage, reiki, reflexology, life coaching and tarot, or you can do whatever you need to allow yourself some special me-time! We offer an extra early evening activity of restorative (or yin yoga) stretch class, mindfulness session, or breathwork workshop, to really take time to restore the body and nourish it with some deep self-care.

Following a wonderful two course gourmet vegan or vegetarian dinner, you will be invited to join us in an evening activity. Silence in Sound will help you unwind and re balance with a beautiful sound bath and on your last night you will be entertained with wonderful storytelling, welsh fables and song by local musician Gwilym Morus – Baird.

There is always a fire pit glowing the garden, if you want to star gaze at the end of each evening!

Reviews from past retreats

I loved every part of my retreat at Sunset Bay! I went to their first ever Veganuary retreat and it was so relaxing, refreshing and nourishing. I feel like I spent a week there although it was only three days! Maggie, Graham and Smudge are so lovely and friendly, they make you feel right at home! The food cooked by Kelly Mason was unbelievable - flavourful, comforting, vibrant, sophisticated. She also taught us so much about vegan nutrition. The activities were all so great and different: yoga sessions, mindfulness, scenic walks along the beach and in the hills, sound bath, tales and songs… I would highly recommend and will happily come back, could not have wished for a better experience for my first trip to Wales 🙂
Best vegan retreat in Wales!
January 2023
I had a fantastic weekend at Sunsetbay Veganuary retreat. It was my first time exploring Wales and it was amazing to see how everything is so close to Tywyn, where the retreat is based. Maggie and Graham gave us a big welcome and took us exploring local hills, waterfalls and seaside towns with the team, alongside other activities such as yoga, gong bath and some local Welsh music. The food was insanely good, every dish was nutritious and healthy and I came back home feeling very recharged and grounded. I strongly recommend this retreat, and I will defo join another one this year!
Amazing retreat to ground and relax!
January 2023
At a crossroads in my life I decided I needed some ‘me’ time and to get away for a while. I couldn’t have chosen a better place to come. I wanted Yoga and relaxation but also some fun activities, some very familiar and some new. Maggie and her team are absolutely fabulous and the 5 days were perfectly put together and delivered to the highest standard. Accommodation and the food were also exceptional. They made me feel so welcome and the other guests and all the staff were an absolute joy to meet and spend time with. I will definitely book again and would not hesitate to recommend Sunset Bay Well-being Retreats ♥️.
Say ‘yes’ to this Retreat! It’s the best 🤩

The most amazing 5 days ever!! Fantastic Chapel, fantastic hosts, Maggie and Graham and the rest of their team! The most delicious and wholesome vegan food I’ve ever tasted. Hot tub and fire pit in the garden and lots of activities including yoga, stretching, walking, meditation, wild swimming, SUP, gong bath, bike ride and more!! I went on my own and I’m so glad I did! It’s something everyone should experience and I’m definitely going back next year!! If I could give a 6 star review I would! Highly recommended
Amazing Retreat!
