Claire's writing retreat in Phu Quoc, Vietnam was a game-changer. The workshops were enlightening, and the atmosphere at Cassia Cottage was ideal for creativity. Their personalised approach and passion for nurturing talent made the retreat unforgettable. A must for any aspiring writer!


The writing retreat at Cassia Cottage in Phu Quoc with Claire and Michael was nothing short of magical. The venue is stunning! Her workshops were insightful, her feedback invaluable, and the sense of camaraderie among fellow writers was great! Claire's ability to promote a supportive environment made the experience so magical. I left the retreat with improved writing skills (and a nearly finished book!), a newfound sense of confidence and a network of like-minded writers. Thank you, Claire, for an extraordinary and inspirational experience!


I had the most transformative experience at the writing retreat hosted by Claire at Cassia Cottage in Phu Quoc. I made some amazing friends, and Claire's guidance and the resort was heavenly. Her expertise shone through in every workshop and one-on-one session. I left feeling inspired and armed with practical tools to enhance my writing. The thoughtful organisation and personal attention made this retreat an invaluable investment in my craft. I can't recommend it highly enough!
