There is one thing of utmost importance to any woman. And it’s the hardest thing to do for most women. Relaxing. Switching off. Stopping the nurturing that is not just a part of our nature, but that IS our nature. Taking care of ourselves, thinking of ourselves first, ourselves only. We hardly ever get the chance to do so in our daily lives – and hardly any of us succeed in doing it guilt-free. But our health and creativity depend on it, our sanity depends on it, and our entire family – those people we take care of day in day out – they too depend on it!

Dar tal-Kaptan Boutique Maison offers a serene and healing oasis for restoring body and mind equilibrium on a sunny mystical island in the centre of the Mediterranean. 

Housed in a 400 year old rural farmhouse with themed suites, original sculpture and artwork, sauna/hammam, pool, jacuzzi, library, relaxation lounges, conservatory, garden, private terraces and outdoor space for yoga.

Surrounded by beautiful country walks, accessible by public transport and just a five minute drive from the capital or nearest swimming cove,  Dar tal-Kaptan provides a sanctuary to re-create, re-invent and re-energise yourself.

Gozo itself is steeped in history which goes back to its sacred neolithic temples. The Maltese Islands are English speaking and easily accessible from all over Europe. Furthermore Malta and especially Gozo were voted the safest country in Europe to bring up children.

Extra treatments include Aromatherapy, Indian Head Massage, Reflexology, Deep Tissue Massage, Pranic Healing, Tibetan Singing Bowls with the added benefit of an onsite Psychiatrist and Doctor and a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language.

We also often combine Yoga retreats with Painting and Creative Writing Workshops. Breakfasts are highly nutritious with seasonal, organic and local produce including smoothies and power food entries and catering for vegans, vegetarians and those with gluten free and lactose free options.

Lee started off her career in the shallow world of Group Fitness and spent 10 years punishing her body through gruelling workouts and encouraging others to do the same as a Personal Trainer/Group Fitness Instructor. Eventually after her body physically and mentally fell apart she found yoga. It's been a hard journey but one that has slowly allowed Lee to start rehabilitating her body and mind.
Lee retrained with Sun Power Yoga back in 2012 - Yoga Alliance accredited and taught class back in the London until finally moving to Gozo this year to share her passion.
Lee's practice is Ashtanga Vinyasa Flow and so her teachings come from these roots - a very spiritual practice - a moving meditation.

Our First Boutique Wedding - June 2016

APRIL 2016


A Moveable Feast

Date: 30/ 04/16

Time: 2pm
Location: Dar Tal-Kaptan Boutique Maison, Triq il-Fanal, Ghasri, GSR 1207, Ghawdex

This Salon is inspired by two of our favourite things: inspiration and ingestion.
What are your favourite fictitious feasts? What food do you enjoy devouring as you voraciously read and consume art? What tipple of choice spurs you on to write, sculpt, paint or compose?
Food, drink, creativity and nourishment. These are our themes in a 'Moveable Feast'
Together we will digest each other's sharings, being original creations inspired by the event or excerpts of instances where food has taken centre stage in fiction and art.

Venue: Salon goes Gozo for the first time. Make a day or a weekend of it. The setting for our intimate gathering is a warm, sensual and eclectic Boutique Maison in Ghasri. Check it out at www.dartalkaptan.com.

Fee: There is no charge for this salon. However all participants are required to bring an 'edible' offering along with them, inspired by a fictitious meal. Think Babette's Feast, Like Water for Chocolate, The Mad Hatter's Tea Party in Alice in Wonderland, The Last Supper by Da Vinci. Literally get your creative juice flowing!!
