escape the hustle.

Imagine four days, and four nights of South African luxury, for you - the boss lady who wants to spend time working on her business, and not in her business.

With five-star amenities, and all comforts considered; all you’ve got to do is show up and enjoy your work-cation at this luxury escape.

It’s like your most productive workday and cosy getaway ALL wrapped into one.

We're tight lipped on the surprises, but you're in for a lush experience!

join us for A purposeful weekend away filled with high-level strategy and masterminding.

Retreat to a hand-picked, private, luxury residence, where the finer details of your weekend have been curated in-house here at AK HQ.

Your itinerary will be provided on arrival - no spoilers allowed!

But we do promise that you’ll have ample time to get your beauty rest, hone in on the intent of your trip, and plan those Instagrammable moments. No awkward ice breakers either!

Not forgetting the gorgeous views, walks, naps, good food and great company. Yoga pants are all the pants you'll need (not for purpose..but purely for comfort!)


an indulgence of the best kind.

When you’re juggling roles in your home and business, it’s hard to identify as the CEO you are. Sometimes it takes stepping away from it all to zoom in on who you really are when you’re not answering emails, instant messages and seeing to the needs of everyone around you.

This is your opportunity to leave the kids at home - whether they have two legs or four! Take your hands off the day-to-day operations, and come swoon over those biz dreams that often fall by the wayside.

Spoil yourself with unlimited time to reason, imagine and dare greatly...away from the daily grind!

inspired. insightful. kickass. supported. valuable. transforming. fun. reflective. personal.


Eat. Sleep. Boss. Retreat is a shared experience for women in business who want to soak up the full benefits of intentional community, breathe a little, get shit done or just hit that "reset" button in both life and business.

Twelve heads are certainly better than one! When we say goodbye, you'll have no memory of every other day you’ve spent at your wits end, with no adult company to call your own...
