Obonjan Island in Croatia is the ideal destination for a ‘healthy’ hen do. With fitness classes in everything from yoga to paddle boarding, plus organic, seasonal and raw dining experiences, this idyllic hideaway offers everything a health-conscious bride-to-be could wish for.
At the forefront of exclusive and sustainable tourism, this small island resort off Croatia’s western coast opened in 2016. It hosts a maximum of 500 guests and is bookable exclusively in the UK through group travel specialist Red7.
The island’s seven restaurants have strong links with local and organic farmers, so the party will be spoiled for choice when looking for natural and beneficial gourmet cuisine. The ‘Green Bar’ serves juices, salads and raw bars, as well as gluten-free and vegan options.
Sarah Chapman, Head of Hen and Stag at Red7 explains: “Croatia is fantastic value compared to its European competition and Obonjan Island has everything in one place for a truly awesome – and stress free – hen do. Yoga, meditation, cocktails, top DJs, live music acts and luxury glamping are the order of the day on this gorgeous island retreat.”
“Accessible by speedboat or ferry from Šibenik, the island is covered is pine forest and olive groves and offers up to seven yoga classes a day plus running clubs, paddle boarding, kayaking and swimming in its gorgeous saltwater pool. The island’s ‘Zen Den’ is the perfect place to unwind with a massage and indulge in luxurious self-care.”
