Where are we?
We live in Croatia, a small but exceptionally beautiful European country. To be more precise, in the southern, Mediterranean part of Croatia, named Dalmatia.
Dalmatia is probably one of the most beautiful and pleasant places for life in the world. Especially the town of Split, in which we were born. The town bursts with tremendous life energy, which was recognized as early as the 4th century by the Roman emperor Diocletian. On this spot he built his magnificent palace (summer residence), and later the town of Split developed on its foundations. He could have built it anywhere on the Mediterranean as the whole area was under the Roman power, but he was advised to build it just on the site of the present-day Split because of its specific life energy and healthful potential this area has. It is true not only of Split but of the whole of Dalmatia, because of the unique harmony of the sea, the sun, the fresh air and the clean unspoiled soil. Besides the food, many other health-related factors are ideally combined in this region. Nature seems to have merged all the best for Man at one place. The people who live here are happy, indeed.

My homeland is my great inspiration. Its magical beauty and beneficial effect on our health have encouraged me to initiate this project. For that very reason I assembled a team of very capable and ambitious young experts of different profiles, who are also deeply aware of an immense health potential of our homeland. Probably nowhere else in the world has Mother Nature been so generous to men. I am genuinely happy to be living here.
Preparing food and designing dishes is another great passion I have. It started in my early childhood and has been going on since. I like experimenting with different groceries in search of the best taste. A few years ago I came across raw food which had a great influence on me. I realized that the healthiest food was at the same time the tastiest food – if prepared correctly.
Since early childhood I showed great interest for natural world and growing plants and I have spent lots of time playing and in sports. I have been training soccer and basketball but I have won most trophys in atlethics namely running middle and long distances. Besides that,I have trained free climbing and boxing. I have acquired Bachelor degree in Physical education Teacher and during my studies I have collected wide knowledge in many sports but my specialisation is in the field of general physical conditioning and fitness coach.
I was born in 1975. in Split and earned my bachelor degree in Phisiotherapy at the University of Split, School of medicine. Currently, I have been working as senior physiotherapist in Association for Multiple Sclerosis. I am also a lifelong lincensed yoga instructor and have attended many national and international training courses and seminars.
We are a team comprised of young, ambitious experts with diverse profiles. We live in Dalmatia (south of Croatia). We decided for joint collaboration as we found interconnection in the same lifetime values. Profound emotional connection with our homeland Dalmatia (south of Croatia) and consciousness of its supreme beauty and great health related potential has determined our path. In short, we are trying to live in harmony with Nature as much as we can, because it is the only way to health, reasonable life and happyness. Not only do we want to enjoy it ourselves, we also want to share it with you.These are just the values we want to promote and bring closer to the rest of the world through our tourist offer.
That is the main reason for us to cooperate lately with the owners of a few luxurious ships from Krilo Jesenice; small town and one of the most renowned centers of nautical tourism in Dalmatia (south part of Croatia). Quality of service on these ships is very good – reliable crew, entertainment programs, beautiful destinations – but we wanted to go a step further and rise service to a higher level according to supreme health related potentials of our homeland. Thus we designed a special holistic well-being program, unique in this area to enhance our guests health and life quality while enjoying their time with us.
