Here at KBP we have our own Petanque area where you can enjoy a game with your friends or our staff whilst enjoying a Pastis, Cocktail or Fruit Juice what ever you prefer.
Although when up against some of the staff be prepared for a serious game as we try to keep up a good reputation and don’t take lightly to being beaten! “Chuckle Chuckle”

Thai Massage is an interactive manipulation of the body using stretching and pressure along energy lines. These accurate movements help to adjust the skeletal structure, increase flexibility, relieve muscular and joint tension, stimulate internal organs, and balance the body’s energy system. The effect is truly relaxing, as well as energising.
Foot Massage is the therapeutic massage of particular areas of the soles of the feet, and to a lesser extent the lower legs. The aim is to stimulate reflex points or lines that are believed to correspond to other parts of the body. Numerous benefits, including improved circulation, especially in feet and legs, improved lymphatic drainage, increased flexibility of feet and joints, stress reduction and relaxation.

Island Yoga is situated about 3 Km from Koyao Bay Pavilions. Offering Drop-in classes, workshops for guests to join.
Each of their yoga teachers has a unique style and offering which provides a colourful array of practices. Most classes are based in Hatha, Vinyasa Flow or Yin Yoga.
Hatha Yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites with a system of physical postures and breathing. In our physical bodies we develop a balance of strength and flexibility, but we also learn to balance our effort and relax in each pose.
Vinyasa Flow artfully connects postures with breath to create a graceful, flowing and rhythmic practice. Yin Yoga is a beautiful practice of surrender that stretches the connective tissue (fascia) in the body by passively holding postures for longer times with gentle pressure. Morning sessions tend to be more energizing, afternoon classes are often quite gentle in nature. With this daily combination you will receive a sense of what it means to embody ‘graceful strength’ in your life.
For Tai Chi, Jimmy our Manager is always willing to go through the basic moves of 24 step Yang Style or Chi Gong Meditation, which he picked up in China many years ago. He certainly doesn’t claim to be a master in anyway, but enjoys to start the day with these simple movements and breathing exercises.
