Governors Island feels like a world away, offering a wide array of history, recreation, and acres of expansive park space to wander with some of New York City’s best views. A hub for art and culture, the island hosts a rich calendar of visual art, performances, and educational exhibits. Tours of the island’s historic National Monuments give guests a glimpse into its important place in United States history. A car-free environment, the island is best explored by foot or on a bicycle. For those who want to spend more time on the water, we also offer a variety of semi-private and private boat cruises on New York’s famed harbor.

Retreat guests will enjoy an array of complimentary morning mindfulness, meditation, and yoga sessions. Our expert instructions guide guests in a socially spaced setting, either outdoors on our terrace, or in the temperature-controlled Collective Clubhouse. Classes take place each morning at 8am.
