Adam

Adam

Umaya was my first step into remote work. As a digital event producer I was nervous but I facilitated events viewed by 1m+ people across 50+ countries. I now have more freelance work than ever before.

Louise

At Umaya you have a community of people which you can socialise with, learn from, go on trips and build genuine friendships with. I got to learn about so many different professions and the skill sharing was a really valuable aspect of the experience for me.

Anthony

It was clear that this is the place I needed to be; Interesting people doing interesting things.⁠ The big takeaways are; great beaches, nice relaxing atmosphere and really cool people to hang out with on the regular.

Dominique

It’s exciting to wake up and enjoy a day with friends. It's changed my perspective on travel, made me love it again, especially wanting to look out for opportunities to meet and make friendships with people.⁠

Umaya Village is not just an office upgrade, but is a space where you can connect with kind and curious nomads from around the world while immersing yourself in local culture. I am walking away from this experience with new skillsets, perspective and most importantly, beautiful new friends.

Kennedy

Kennedy

Coming to Umaya, was such a wonderful decision! It gave me the “coworkers” I’ve never had.⁠ The break in my normal pace and change of space has allowed me to focus on myself and grow in ways I couldn’t have dreamed. 

Mark

Mark

The vibe is much better than traditional retreats as you live in a community of awesome new friends, rather than with transient strangers who claim loungers by leaving towels on them! Am super keen to come back and get more involved for sure. This place and the people are great.

Natalia

Natalia
