Chia-Ti Chu

Chia-Ti Chu is an inspirational instructor who is passionate about bringing the benefits of yoga to as many people as she can. The retreat she led a retreat at Bellevue was a revelation to all who were present and we hope to welcome her back many times in the future. We caught up with her recently to ask for her abiding memories of the time she spent here in 2013:


“I am an NYC-based yoga instructor. I brought a group of 17 people on a yoga retreat to Barbados in February 2013. We stayed at Bellevue, which was an ideal place to hold a yoga retreat. The grounds were level, adequately shaded, and lovely to practice on. The house itself was beautiful and well laid out. It easily accommodated everyone while feeling spacious and inviting. The staff were kind and extremely helpful, and all our needs were met and exceeded. Barbados is an easy island to get around, and I recommend exploring as much of it as possible. We enjoyed our stay immensely. I would definitely hold another retreat at Bellevue. It is a wonderful place and Barbados continues to be one of my favourite Caribbean islands.” Chia-Ti Chiu

Over the past ten months, our reputation for hospitality has grown dramatically. Word has also spread of the amazing weddings we hold on the grounds.
