About the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel
We are very excited to announce Lynn Andrews’ 15th Annual Retreat in Hawaii for renewal, rejuvenation and dreaming. The retreat this year will again be at the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, on the Big Island!
Nestled between two white sand beaches on the sunny Kohala Coast, Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and Bungalows is unrivaled. An eleven-time winner of the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award, Mauna Lani Bay is an exquisite blend of sophisticated luxury and Hawaiian style hospitality. Within the boundaries of our 3,200 acre Resort, guests may enjoy the ambiance of ancient Hawaii in the mystical fishponds and petroglyphs, the beautiful sunsets, lush gardens and a stretch of shoreline which is home to a myriad of marine life.
Guest accommodations reflect the utmost taste and timeless elegance. Every room is a refreshing tropical oasis and features a private lanai; over ninety percent overlook the blue Pacific or the ancient fishponds.
Sounds like heaven on earth, doesn’t it? The space is VERY limited for the retreat! It is going to be a small group of around 75 people. You can register ONLINE or by MAIL/FAX using the registration form (see sidebar). You may also register by phone: call 1-800-554-7414 (USA) or +1 561-265-1838 (International).
Many have expressed interest in bringing a spouse to the event. In addition to being one of the world’s most exquisite locations, there are many, many activities at the hotel itself which your spouse can enjoy.
Perfect Kohala weather provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy outdoor fun. Golf, tennis, biking, jogging, spa facilities, and water sports are just a few of the activities available at the resort. Upon check-in guests also receive a schedule of complimentary activities they are invited to join in. The varied schedule includes lei-making, watercolor painting, tropical flower arranging, hula lessons, lomi-lomi massage demonstrations, Hawaiian games, fish feeding tours and historic tours.
The historian on site shares Hawaiian history and legends with guests at the Eva Parker Woods Cottage which is home to interesting artifacts of Hawaii.
The Guest Services staff at Mauna Lani are available to coordinate other Island activities including big game fishing, horseback riding, helicopter sightseeing, and tours of the Big Island. At Mauna Lani Bay you can spend lazy days swaying in a hammock; or explore all the excitement and adventure the Mauna Lani Resort, and the Big Island of Hawaii has to offer.
WHEN: December 4 – December 7, 2013
Plan on arriving on ONE DAY EARLY as we will begin our work the following morning. Also plan on staying at the hotel on the last evening of the retreat and LEAVING THE FOLLOWING MORNING. Since we will be working into the evening hours on the last day, you will more than likely get a better airfare rate with a Saturday stay-over.
WHERE: The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel is on the big island of Hawaii. If you have access to the internet, you may want to look at the hotel’s web site, and prepare to be impressed. www.maunalani.com
LODGING: We have made VERY special arrangements with the hotel. Lodging cost is approximately $235.00 per day*. Tax and gratuities are extra. You will need to make your room reservations directly with the hotel. Call the hotel at 1-800-367-2323 or 1-808-885-6622 and let them know you are with the Lynn Andrews’ group. * This is approximate lodging cost – please check with the hotel for actual room rates.
For anyone who does not have a roommate, and wishes to share a room, we will help facilitate this for you. Simply fill in the registration form requesting a roommate -or- call Lynn Andrews’ registration line at 1-800-554-7414, and put your name on a “Roommate Wanted” list. If we know of someone looking to share a room, we’ll give you their name and phone number. It is then up to you to call and make arrangements with your potential roommate. We will also add your name to the list and give your name and phone number to others calling for a roommate. We are happy to provide you with this information.
Please remember, however, that any choice of roommate(s) is your responsibility. Please also remember to call when you have found a roommate and wish to be removed from the list.
By the way, the hotel is offering these same discount rates up to October 19, 2013. Afterwards, it will be on a first come basis. Also, if you are interested in staying a little longer, please be sure to confirm your discount rate with the hotel at the time you register.
PROGRAM: Lynn feels that an essential part of renewing our spirit and rejuvenating our soul, is to spend as much time on this sacred and powerful land as possible. Therefore, a large portion of the daytime hours will be spent working out on the land. You will be given a beautifully crafted journal for this part of the work. The journal will consist of meditations, exercises, explorations, and personal ceremonies designed specifically to move you into a receptive point-of-view. These personal processes are an important aspect of the retreat and will prepare you for the in-depth work we will then do together in the evening hours. Registration cost is $850.00.
Register EARLY (Cost is $650.00 before August 10, 2013) – save $200!
Registration also includes a $150.00 non-refundable deposit.
Nursing and Therapist CEU’s are available for this special retreat for an additional fee, $60. See the link in the sidebar to the right.
TRAVEL: The closest airport is the Kona International Airport on the big island of Hawaii. If you would like to ride a shuttle from the airport, you will need to let the hotel know a week in advance and they will take care of that for you. There is a cost for this service. The price varies depending on the number of people riding the shuttle with you and the time of day. Ask the hotel for more details. They will be happy to help you arrange your shuttle ride.
