Godai Escapes is a highly curated slow travel retreat that offers an in-depth view of destinations by partnering with the most interesting local creatives and talents in food & wine.
The first six-day Godai Escape is launching in Ibiza, October 18-23, 2017 in a gorgeous bohemian villa with access to one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The experience aims to help busy young professionals slow down and become present in their environment while enjoying some of the best local food on the island, listen to stories of the Ibiza bohemians, and learn photography from a professional.
Godai founders Tasya Menaker and Eva Dixon are collaborating with inspiring local insiders like Anne Goelet Sijmonsbergen of the Ibiza Cookbook who will demonstrate an Ibicenco cooking demo, Renu Kashyap-Abels of the book Ibiza Bohemia who will give insight into her inspiration for the project and do a book signing. Bernat Tatjer of B&Me Wine will present his array of natural & organic wines including the up and coming popular orange wine. Highly praised head chef Adriana Cavita of Peyotito will host a Mexican themed dinner with a mezcal pairing as precursor taste to the next Godai Escape which will take place in Tulum, Mexico in February 2018. The escape will come to an end with an excursion to Ex- Noma chef Boris Buono’s countryside restaurant Ibiza Food Studio The Finca for a special treat for the senses.
Tasya, who has been a professional photographer for ten years and has been a local in Ibiza for five years, will will host a photography class the first day of the escape for those who want to learn. The six day escape will be very photogenic and Tasya will be there to assist attendees take beautiful photos be it with a dslr or camera phone. A follow up discussion and review will be held the last day. For advanced photographers this retreat is an opportunity to build their portfolio, and glean inspiration from the island.
