Takeoff to Barbados!

Join us for our annual Ladies Who Soar Caribbean Retreat in September 2019. We’re taking off to enjoy St. James Barbados for 6 days, 5 nights in a private black-owned luxury villa. This retreat is hosted by Nasha Barnes, who began this series in 2015 as a replenishing way to regain her vibrant energy and capture what mattered most in her life – her health and well-being!

Each year there’s a different destination, but the “for who” and “what it is” remains the same. This all-inclusive retreat is for black women in leading roles around the world who celebrate life on God’s terms. They own their dreams, create their own benchmarks for success, step out of bounds to care for others, and they unselfishly carve out time to enjoy some of God’s wondrous creations for themselves.

The Ladies Who Soar Retreat is designed to give you an enriching experience in luxurious accommodations on a paradise island.  Your enlightening itinerary will immerse you in the Islands culture, rhythmic vibes, lush environment, and most of all, will provide you with ample opportunities to Relax, Renew & Rejuvenate.

Irresistible Island Charm

Affectionately called “Little England,” Barbados features a unique combination of British tradition and Caribbean flair, creating an irresistibly charming atmosphere. During your stay you’ll experience sipping afternoon tea from your private patio overlooking the sea, you’ll frolic in crystal-clear turquoise water, and you’ll be treated to the island’s world-famous rum.

Our outings are set to give you a real island experience, from tastes of some of the islands favorite cuisines, to a catamaran cruise that’ll allow you to see the landscape from breathtaking views. Your Ladies Who Soar Beach Party will forever be remembered, as we head to the beach mid-day to enjoy a party just for you. You’ll be greeted with reserved chairs and umbrellas, and served a round of Rum Punch and several appetizers like a lady should. We can go on and on and spoil all the surprises, but we’ll leave out the remaining details. Just prepare yourself for nothing short of the best on this Island Paradise Escape.

Don’t miss out on this unforgettable experience that happens only once a year. Reserve your suite NOW, space is limited!
