Red Savannah is launching Zen Retreats, a brand of health retreats in the Mediterranean at the Red Savannah villas, this May.

Zen Retreats will be fully hosted and run by a team of health experts, including nutritional therapists, personal trainers, ultra-runners, and yoga and Pilates instructors.
