The Ultimate

Girls Week Away Retreats

Hoi An, Vietnam ~ 6-13 March 2021

Are you a dream chaser who has been thinking of something spectacular through isolation?

then this is for you and

We want to invite you to be part of our global

Ultimate Family!


As busy women, we often prioritize everyone except for ourselves and that is why the Ultimate Girls Week Away is perfect for you. It's time for you to reflect, relax and reconnect to the woman you were born to be.

It is time to laugh - that long, deep laugh that you often can only do with other women,

and we want you to discover those moments that you will remember forever and hold close to your heart at UGWA 2021.


​Imagine having UGWA 2021 to look forward to when all of this is over!!!!


I went not knowing a soul and came home with some lifelong connections.


It is so wonderful to be with women for a whole week, challenging yourself and growing and learning.


Doing this in a beautiful setting was the icing on the cake. I am so proud of myself for taking the leap of faith and going on this retreat.


It was life-altering. Thank you to Liesel and her wonderful team.

& memories that last a lifetime


... it's time to nourish and awaken your soul. As women, we often over-commit, say yes when we mean no, and go above and beyond to support others...

time for you to do something just for you and join us in Vietnam at UGWA 2021

In 2021 we have not one...

but two!! amazing wisdom keepers to share with you...

The Ultimate Girls Week Away PACKAGE



The Ultimate Girls Week Away Retreats are for women to just be, to rest, to laugh, to sleep, to play and everything in between - designed for women by women who understand.


If you have forgotten who you are - who you were born to be, and what you are here to do.

If you often put other people's priorities before your own. If you care too much, think too long and wonder what else is out there.

If you yearn to feel deep connections to others.

UGWA 2021 is for you.

Elizabeth Gilbert at UGWA 2020 says

"the most powerful woman is a relaxed woman".


Each year we travel to a new location and in 2021 we have chosen Hoi An Vietnam and a resort that is exclusive just for us!




This seven-day event along the stunning coast of Vietnam in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of

Hoi An encompasses everything you need in a retreat.


We are honored to have Wisdom Keepers  Gabrielle Bernstein and SARK join us - through them, you will learn about manifesting the life you want and how to be wild, succulent women all in one breath.

Most days there will be the sharing of wisdom from the stage, workshops, Ultimate Sister Circles where you will come together with a small group of women to share your experience with and wonderful Vietnamese cuisine, and so much more.

You will have time in the Ultimate Healing Hub, to indulge in a massage in the Spa and to have a personal tailor session and have some signature perfume made just for you


Be Immersed  


This is why Hoi AN is the perfect destination for UGWA 2021, the diversity and rich history of Vietnam - every turned corner in the UNESCO World Heritage site shows you a different part of their culture.

Vietnam is a country of culture, where family, the traditions of those that have gone before, heritage and food are all melded into one.

Be Inspired


Be inspired by each and every conversation and connection that you have, whether it is a fleeting moment or a long lasting relationship.

When women come together something magical occurs - we find that piece of ourselves that allows us to rediscover who we are. That part of ourselves that becomes lost in our busy lives, and here at UGWA we will encourage you to just be you.

Our Core Values

In a world that is waking up, where women are finding their voice, and there are more demands on us than ever before... it's time for us to leave the hustle & spend time nurturing our Soul.

This is why UGWA has three core values


Be Awakened


Be awakened by thoughts that seep into your soul

When women come together something magical occurs - we find that piece of ourselves that allows us to rediscover who we are. That part of ourselves that becomes lost in our busy lives.

You'll love this

At UGWA 2021 we are excited to offer two very special boutique inclusions - your very own signature perfume from Artisian Perfumer Julie Nelson and a tailored clothing package with Phu Phu Tailors and our very own UGWA stylist Alison Marlow.
