What are we doing?
We are offering safe and idyllic long-term accommodation in an island resort at an affordable price, for people who align with our ethos of creative and environmental wellness. Work on yourself, with others, or with the environment away from the distractions of the rest of the world. What can you achieve in perfect conditions for self-care and productivity?
Why are we doing it?
With growing economic uncertainty and anxiety over global health, we foresee the months ahead of us becoming an opportunity to look within and upgrade ourselves for what’s to come. Instead of giving in to fearful separation, let’s view it as a moment ripe for re-evaluation, contemplation, strengthening our physical and mental health, inner reflection, self-work, online work, creative expression, small community bonding and quality time with the ones we love.
With the many restrictions imposed on general urban lifestyles such as scarcity of resources, bans, restrictions and general fear of public safety, we want to extend the opportunity to take advantage of our abundance of resources, unrestricted movement on a warm, tropical island, and to be free from the fear of contracting the virus that shall not be named (since it doesn’t exist here!).
Who are we looking for?
We’re looking for proactive ideators and creators with a proven track record of making a positive and tangible impact in self-development, innovative technology, community building, and environmental sustainability.
People who are open to doing the work to connect, create, and contribute; whether to improve personal development, community building, or environmental regeneration. For example:
- Permaculture / Green thumbs who can improve our food production and spruce up our garden.
- Off-grid Energy pioneers who can implement renewable infrastructures to reduce our consumption.
- Sales and Marketing mavericks who can boost our brand presence and sales.
- Wealth and Investment hackers who can increase our revenue streams.
- Creative artists (visual, literal, musical, experience designers, etc.) who can beautify the space in collaboration with us and create ‘wow’ moments.
- Professionals who can share skills and techniques for health and self-improvement and teach or certify us to teach others.
What do you get?
Abundant fresh food, sunshine, clean air, gym and spa facilities, a safe and hygienic environment, and WiFi on a tropical eco-friendly resort — at a fraction of the normal cost, on an inexpensive and COVID-free island.
Your minimal financial contribution to help us keep our doors open and employ staff, plus a skill contribution (at least 1 hour a day or a block during the week) which will help us continue fulfilling our purpose during this unforeseen period around the globe.

For this particular period, we don’t have a retreat schedule or strict program to offer as everyone has different reasons and needs for being here. However, we do have some suggestions as to how you might choose to spend your time in a structured flow based on your level of energy and intensity for the day. We’re happy to share what we know and have experienced in these activities though we are not certified experts.
In keeping things simple, we suggest an approach of ‘Sit, Stretch, Smash, Share’ when choosing activities;
- SIT encompasses anything introspective and relaxing, to do withself-reflection and self-care.
- STRETCH extends your comfort zone, giving space to expand thoughts into words and actions.
- SMASH those barriers, focus with intensity on your goals, and build new habits for a better you.
- SHARE is a component specifically for this promotion, which covers what you can contribute to improve the Jaiyen environment, create a better team, or refine operational systems so that we can become a place of learning and sharing for future visitors.

Jaiyen is a new, nature-inspired resort and creative space with a unique atmosphere and focus that merges artistry with wellness. It offers holistic, personalized services to help people reconnect to their purpose and ignite creative power with the availability of various tools, equipment, and instruments.
We aim to attract proactive leaders, creatives, and impact-driven visionaries who require a safe and intimate space for self-reflection and respite or to hold collaborative think-tanks and strategic sessions away from stale and traditional suburban environments. We encourage healthy practices that can be integrated into daily lifestyle, providing modern creature comforts in natural and comfortable surroundings.
We currently have 10 cocoons in total, each overlooking the ocean. There are 4x Deluxe Cocoons with AC, TV, WiFi, and 6x Standard Cocoons with AC & WiFi only, each with 70 sqm internal / 35 sqm external space to accommodate individuals, couples or groups.
We prefer to keep total capacity small and intimate so as to allow more space for personal immersion, integration & deeper social interactions. 1-3 adults or 2 adults /1 child per cocoon is ideal.
