We are Kamal & Cheraldin and we need you!

Crowdfunding

Update Feb-18: we raised already 189.715 euro, wow! Thanks to 132 supporters. Still 10.285 euro to reach our goal of 200.000 euro!

Soul Valley is a conscious boutique hotel and retreat center in a small remote valley on the beautiful Italian island of Sardinia. A magical place in the middle of nature and close to the sea, where you can completely recover from your busy daily life. With activities to live more consciously and intensely.

Do you want to help make Soul Valley possible together with us?

We are Kamal and Cheraldin. Last year we moved from Amsterdam to Sardinia to create a place where people can grow and relax. Our dream is that many people at Soul Valley can fully recharge from their busy daily lives, gain beautiful insights, get in touch with their true self, and simply enjoy. We are so grateful how our lives changed over the past decade through all kinds of retreats and a more conscious lifestyle, that we now want to create a place and programs or others.

Conscious boutique hotel

From June to September Soul Valley is a conscious boutique hotel with lovely double rooms and detached guesthouses surrounded by a large garden. If you want you can participate free of charge in the morning yoga and afternoon meditations that are given daily by professional teachers. Enjoy vegetarian food in our restaurant, a relaxing massage and breathtaking white sand beaches that are only a few kilometers away. Relax with your book and a nice juice at the edge of the pool with a view of the azure blue sea and the surrounding mountains. The loving food is prepared with organic products that arrive fresh on your plate straight from our orchards and vegetable gardens.

Retreat center

From October to May, inspiring retreats and training courses take place at Soul Valley to fully recharge yourself and to grow personally. Soul Valley itself offers various weekly programs and in addition, all kinds of trainers and organizations organize their own event at Soul Valley. This creates a calendar with something for everyone. Think for example of yoga and meditation retreats, conscious corporate training, silence weeks, breathwork, leadership programs, detox weeks and all kinds of other retreats.

There will be two spacious halls for 10 to 50 people with a yoga plateau outside with a view over the sea. Participants in the retreats stay overnight in the hotel and guesthouses, and can immerse themselves in everything that distinguishes Soul Valley: tranquility, nature, spaces decorated with heart and soul, starry skies and overwhelmingly delicious food.

Our dream

We are Kamal and Cheraldin. Last year we moved with our family from Amsterdam to Sardinia to create a place where people can grow and relax. Our dream is that many people at Soul Valley can recover from their busy daily life, gain beautiful insights, get in touch with their true selves, and simply enjoy. We are so grateful to how our lives have changed over the past decade through all kinds of retreats and a more conscious lifestyle, that we now want to create a special place and programs for others. Moreover, we bring years of experience to make it a success: Kamal has been involved in various startups as an entrepreneur and manager and Cheraldin had a catering company for ten years.

The place

When we visited the valley for the first time last year, saw the beautiful buildings and felt the special energy, we immediately knew: this is the place for Soul Valley. The various buildings are spread over the two opposite mountains of the remote valley and have been built with much love and dedication by the original owners. The buildings blend into nature and are surrounded by orchards, vegetable gardens and typical Sardinian hills. The buildings are now 70% finished. If we reach our target amount of 200,000 euros in the crowdfunding, we can open next summer with the hotel building, the restaurant, the first group room, the swimming pool, the spa and two guesthouses and welcome up to 28 guests. If we exceed the target amount of the crowdfunding, we could also start to renovate the existing farm and equestrian center, which can accommodate an additional 22 guests and the second group hall. That would of course be fantastic.

Hotel

The concept

We expect that the hotel guests and the participants in the retreats and training courses will mainly come from Europe. Our hotel prices are comparable to other boutique hotels in Sardinia. This allows us to keep prices low for our high-quality accommodation and food during retreats and training. Trainers and organizations that want to organize their program at Soul Valley, we do not charge rent or cleaning costs, only an amount for the overnight stay and food of participants. This makes it very interesting to organize a group at Soul Valley.

Relaxed seating areas and large lounge sofas with a thatched roof will be spread over the site. Wonderful to be able to enjoy the peace and environment in your own bubble. And don't forget: the unprecedented starry skies. The swimming pool will be half in the rocks surrounded by wooden decking with sun beds. With a bar for fresh tea and Italian coffee, slow juices, smoothies and refreshing drinks. We choose to have Soul Valley completely smoke and alcohol free, so that your body and mind can optimally recharge. However, you will not be short of anything with a menu with delicious food and special aperitifs, mocktails and non-alcoholic beer and prosecco. A yoga plateau, two saunas, a panoramic meditation spot and hiking trails will be built on the hills. You can also book fine massages or a hammam treatment, go to the beach, and treat yourself to a private yoga class, breathing session or sound healing. Everyone from the age of 14 is welcome. Soul Valley is located in the south of Sardinia, forty minutes from the historic capital Cagliari and the international airport. We are of course happy to help you arrange a taxi or rental car.

Durability

The hotel rooms, guesthouses, group rooms and the restaurant will be renovated with natural materials and equipped with energy-efficient installations. With beautiful sustainable furniture, beds and bathrooms. Waste is limited and separated with, among other things, a compost facility. The food comes mainly from our own harvest and from local farmers, without pesticides. Solar panels provide natural energy and water comes from our own source. In our aim to make Soul Valley completely CO2 neutral, we plant a tree for every booking.

We need you!

We have been able to finance a large part ourselves and with the help of family, but we come 200,000 euros short to open next summer. And that is why we ask for your help. You can help us by providing us with a loan, or by booking a retreat or summer stay in the conscious hotel. With this we can finish the buildings, furnish the spaces and make the valley even more beautiful. If we achieve more we can renovate the farm and riding school and welcome more people and groups. Do you want to help us make Soul Valley possible? We will be incredibly grateful to you.

Loan

You help us enormously if you want to provide a loan. This is possible from 250 euros. You receive an annual interest of 4% and we are happy to repay you in four years. At the beginning of 2022, you will receive the interest for the first year. And at the beginning of 2023, 2024 and 2025, we will repay your loan plus the annual interest in three installments.

The restaurant will have a Wall of Fame with all the people who have helped make Soul Valley possible. To thank you extra, you will receive nice rewards in addition to the interest. This way you will receive a nice package of products from the orchards from our upcoming harvest. And depending on the loan amount, you will also receive your own tree in the valley with your name sign on it (and we will inform you how the tree grows by emailing you every now and then) or you can determine the name of one of the hotel rooms, guesthouses or group rooms (for example your own name, your child's, your favorite band or your company).

Presale

Another way you can help us enormously is by pre-booking a retreat, training or summer stay in the conscious hotel. You will then receive a voucher to join Soul Valley sometime in the coming years, at a time that suits you. Because you now pay this voucher, we can pre-finance our renovation. We are happy to include you in the Wall of Fame in the restaurant, and to thank you extra for your help with Soul Valley you will receive a 20% discount on the normal price of the hotel stay or retreat. As a trainer or organization, you can also book the location at an attractive discount.
