Reviews From Happy Clients

“If you are looking for a relaxing vacation in Hawaii with beautiful raw food and simple but exotic adventures – definitely take a break and enjoy the hospitality of Laura and Noah Dawn. Their travel package to Hawaii is perfect for the eco-conscious kind and can be tailored to include activities that only the locals would know about! Our vacation to Hawaii was a beautiful experience that included waterfall parks, lava flow hikes, black sand beach picnics, green turtle sightings, whale sightings, snorkeling, camping…oh gosh, and so much delicious tropical fruit! What made it all the more special was spending it with such sweet and caring hosts – it was delightful and unforgettable. I highly recommend the Happy & Raw Private Retreat!”

This vacation was the most beautiful experience we ever had and included camping on the beach to see the sea turtles and dolphins, snorkeling,  seeing remote green sand beaches, hiking the volcano and nearby lava flows,  swimming at the black sand beach, experiencing the local artisan markets, and a permaculture farm tour. During this time Laura Dawn introduced us to the raw food lifestyle and taught us the basics to get on our feet and continue with our journey.  You won’t believe all the tropical fruits she will introduce you to!  After our time eating 100% raw, our bodies look and feel great.  We definitely got the enjoyable and relaxing vacation we hoped for. We would definitely recommend Laura Dawn's Private Raw Food Hawaii Vacation to anyone considering it."
